The Twilight Saga will go out in style.
It's been confirmed that Dreamgirls director Bill Condon will helm Breaking Dawn, the final film in the franchise, as the Oscar winner signed off on the project today. He said:
“I’m very excited to get the chance to bring the climax of this saga to life on-screen. 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.”
Breaking Dawn starts production later this year. It will feature, of course, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson in the roles that made them famous.
Multiple reports, meanwhile, state that Breaking Dawn will be split into two movies. If this takes place, it's safe to assume Condon will direct both installments.
