Directing Candidates for ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’

A brief update regarding The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn as a few names are being thrown into the ring at potential candidates to direct the brutal vampire birth. Sources tell EW that the studio has reached out to at least three top-notch directors, including Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation), Gus Van Sant (Milk), and Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) to gauge their interest in what is likely to be two movies. In the words of BC, “The only clear choice to direct BREAKING DAWN is Lars Von Trier.” LOL. In the novel by Stephenie Meyer, pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to Jacob Black, Bella Swan has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point. Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating and unfathomable consequences.
