Twilight Breaking Dawn: Early Rumors Surface!

With “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” still busily raking in cash in the theaters, fans are already looking forward to the next installment – “Breaking Dawn,” which won’t hit theaters until November, 2011. Despite rumors of salary disputes between Summit and Cullen family vampire players Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz, it seems that the whole cast will be back for the final installment, which is going to be split into two parts.

Bill Condon will be taking the reigns for both movies. Condon is best known for writing and directing the Oscar winning “Dreamgirls.” His other directing credits include “Kinsey” and “Gods and Monsters.” He also wrote the screenplay for “Chicago.” Take heart though “Twilight” fans, there are no rumors that Condon is planning to turn “Breaking Dawn” into a musical! Taylor Lautner has referred to Condon as “ridiculously talented,” so apparently the cast feel as though they are in good hands.

Summit recently told Entertainment Weekly that both “Breaking Dawn” films will be PG-13, which leads one to think that they, like the novel “Breaking Dawn,” will be more graphic than the previous titles, which have been quite bland for vampire films. Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg told fans via her Facebook page that she’ll ensure plenty of blood and sex in the final films – which may not be comforting to parents of young fans.

It’s already been announced that Summit plans to break the movie into two parts. Rosenberg says she anticipates cutting the story at the point at which Bella becomes a vampire. We’ll have to wait until November 18, 2011, to see how the first installment turns out, but stay tuned to KidGlue for more on “Breaking Dawn” as it makes it’s way to the silver screen.
