Breaking Dawn Movie Spoilers.

Breaking Dawn, the fourth and final piece to the Twilight book series by Stephenie Meyer will get its chance to dazzle us on the big screen.

Talk of the stars' contracts, potential directors, the film being split into two a la Harry Potter, and how the heck you shoot the "birthing scene" is setting the internet ablaze.

Here's what we know so far...


Although Gus Van Sant and Sofia Coppola were considered for the gig, director Bill Condon (with films as varied as Gods and Monsters, Kinsey and Dreamgirls on his resume) is the #1 choice to helm the final two Twilight films. (Deadline)
The Reader director Stephen Daldry had been thrown into the candidate list as well, perhaps because every film he's directed has earned him a Best Director nomination at the Academy Awards. (LA Times)

Twilight: Breaking Dawn will indeed be two seperate movies and will be filmed back-to-back. (Deadline)

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner have all signed on for the final installment. (LA Times)

Robert Pattinson is looking to outbulk Taylor Lautner for new film. (Reel Empire)
Twilight: Breaking Dawn may be 3-D, despite Kristen Stewart's wishes. (MTV)

The alleged Stephenie Meyer/Summit Entertainment drama about the film being split into two parts is false. A post on her blog states: Just a quick note on the subject of the Breaking Dawn film: there is no drama over whether the book should be one movie or two. My personal feeling is that it would be very difficult to cram the whole story into one movie (as I've said in many interviews previous to this), but if a great way of doing that surfaces, I'm all for it. Two or one, whichever way fits the story best is fine by me, and everyone I've spoken with at Summit seems to feel the same way. We're all excited to move forward on this, and we are slowly and surely getting there. I know people are anxious for news, and so sometimes gossip gets fabricated to stir things up, but there's no basis to this particular story. (

The film will not be rated-R, despite fan petitions. When asked if the film was aiming for PG-13 screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg answered: "Oh yeah, absolutely. That's your audience. In this series you don't sacrifice anything. There are some movies that wouldn't play at PG-13, like The Hangover, but this is just not one of them for me. Again, if you're capturing character, emotion, and emotional journey, you're OK." (
