Bill Condon To Direct The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn

Condon_Twilight_Breaking DawnOscar winner Bill Condon has signed on to direct Breaking Dawn, the fourth installment of the Twilight Saga films.

President of Production & Acquisitions for Summit Entertainment, Erik Feig  stated “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.”

Author Stephanie Meyer had this to say about Condon coming on board “”I’m so thrilled that Bill wants to work with us. I think he’s going to be a great fit, and I’m excited to see what he does with the material.”

Condon is best known for writing and directing such prestige pictures as Dreamgirls, Kinsey and Gods and Monsters, for which he won his Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.

“I’m very excited to get the chance to bring the climax of this saga to life on-screen” said Bill Condon. “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.”

At this point, there is no indication if Breaking Dawn will be one film or two, or whether or not it will be shot in 2D or 3D. What is known is that the film (or possibly films) will begin shooting this fall in Vancouver.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third film of the series, is set to hit theaters June 30th.
