Bill Condon Directing “Breaking Dawn”
2:00 pm, April 28th, 2010
Academy Award winner Bill Condon will direct The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Summit Entertainment announced today.
In a press release, Condon 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.”
Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight series, said she is “thrilled” Condon is directing and is “excited to see what he does with the material.”
Condon, who won an Oscar in 1999 for Gods and Monsters, was the front-runner for the project, despite a false claim that Gus Van Sant had already “signed” to do the movie and speculation that Michael Mann was a major candidate.
