Twilight: Breaking Dawn Split into Two Back-to-Back Flicks
By now you know how this works. We hear something about The Twilight Saga, and I make some sort of snarky comment about how unbelievable it is this series is so successful despite the source material that reads like it was written in a 15-year-old girl's diary. It's like clockwork. So now that we've got that out of the way, here's the news that you Twi-Hards want to hear, or the news that fanboys will inevitably bitch about. Deadline Hollywood reports that the final installment of The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn, will also be going the Deathly Hallows route and be split into two back-to-back films to begin shooting in mid-October.
The question that still remains for Summit to answer is who will be directing the close of the series. No hints at any possibilities yet, but they are said to be looking at "high-end" directors. I have to say that I'm looking forward to the end of The Twilight Saga, not simply because it will be over and we can stop hearing about it (at least until they reboot it in a couple years), but rather because I hear the final book is absolutely nuts and practically adaptation repellent, and I can't wait to see what a disaster it will be. And whichever "high end" director they hire for it better be ready for a career death after Dawn. Anyone else ready for the end?
