Robert Pattinson’s pick for Breaking Dawn director: Gus Van Sant

Robert Pattinson’s pick for ‘Breaking Dawn’ director: Gus Van Sant

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- A director has yet to be named for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn,” but series star Robert Pattinson is putting in a good word for director Gus Van Sant.

“I probably shouldn’t say this, but I’ve heard that we’re going to shoot [‘Breaking Dawn’] in Portland,” Robert told MTV News during the “New Moon” junket last weekend.

And if Robert were to get his dream director wish, local Portland-based Oscar nominee Van Sant would be in the director’s seat.

“I think Gus Van Sant would be great to do it,” he said.

The young actor thinks the double Oscar nominee for “Good Will Hunting” and “Milk” would bring cinematic beauty to the fourth book.

“He shoots everything in Portland. He’s good at making it look beautiful,” Robert said. “It’s all about teenage love and obsessions. I think Gus Van Sant would be great.”
