According to Entertainment Weekly, Summit is looking at Academy Award nominated directors for Breaking Dawn.

Yes, it’s still early days, but Summit is trying to up its pedigree for its big-screen adaptation of the final installment of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. 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. (Van Sant’s reps confirmed that he’s been approached, but Coppola and Condon’s people didn’t return phone calls by press time. Summit declined to comment.)

No decisions are likely to be made until the studio delivers screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg’s detailed outline to the directors. That should happen sometime next week. Until then we can just wonder how these three very diverse directors will approach Bella’s controversial birthing scene.

Krystal (krystal_f) | 1609 comments In my opinion an Award Winning Director should have been directing this from jump! And while we're at it, I hope that they find a better screen writer for the next movies also. I know its a recession and its a hard time for people to be out of work, but I will never forgive that screen writer for the mess she made of Ch 13 in Twilight :( Im very upset about that.

That is all.

Love Jacob!
