Bill Condon to direct Breaking Dawn

Dreamgirls helmer confirmed for Twilight Round 4...

 

Eclipse might not be out for another month or so, but the Twilight bandwagon rolls ever forward, with Summit Entertainment revealing Bill Condon will take the reigns for fourth instalment, Breaking Dawn.

It’s a bit of a coup for the teen saga, with Condon lending some Oscar-winning credibility (he snagged one for his scripting work on Gods And Monsters) to the toothy angst-fest.

“I’m very excited to get the chance to bring the climax of this saga to life on-screen,” he says, in the official press release. “As fans of the series know, this is a one-of-a-kind book, and we’re hoping to create an equally unique cinematic experience.”



Fairly generic stuff there, but fans can expect a steady hand on what could otherwise be a fairly hysterical climax, what with Bella’s half-human/half-vampire sprog causing all sorts of mayhem.

That said, Condon was responsible for Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh, so maybe we’ll see a splatter-tastic conclusion to the series!

With the final novel a bit of an epic, it remains to be seen whether the story will be spread across one or two films, but we certainly wouldn’t bet against it. Will Summit be after one box-office payday or two? Hmmm.

Are you excited for the Twilight climax, or happy to see the back of it?
