Bill Condon To Direct Breaking Dawn

It’s official!

Academy Award winner Bill Condon will take on the fourth film in the franchise, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.

Summit’s Erik Feig, President of Production and Acquisitions, said in a statement, “Bringing Stephenie Meyer‘s ‘Breaking Dawn’ to the screen requires a graceful and intelligent hand and we believe Bill Condon is exactly the right steward, having shown equal and abundant talents of immense creativity and subtle sensitivity.”

The fourth film, starring Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson, is set to start production later this year.

    @jessica: i think this is to keep up the momentum and to keep consistency in the appearance of the characters. the timing of the books is basically back to back, so it wouldn’t work to have the movies too spaced apart. the actors would change too much in their looks.

    yaya i cant wait and i hope they are splitting it into 2, cuz all that information cannot fit into one movie.

    and i think that they should use the baby from Good Luck Charlie to play renesme because she fits the category and she is the cutest baby(toddler) ever =]

    go breaking dawn !!!!!
