It's Official: Breaking Dawn will be TWO MOVIES
EDIT: Dang it! After I get myself all excited about the news from Deadline Hollywood, Summit releases this:
"No decision has been made and as we have said all along we are continuing to work with Stephenie Meyer to bring BD to the big screen."
*sigh* Well, there's still a chance that it will be two movies.
Nope, I am so not kidding! Nikki Finke from Deadline Hollywood
has heard from several reliable sources that Summit has decided that Breaking Dawn will
be made into two movies!
"Filming on the back-to-back movies would begin in mid-October, and Summit Entertainment is looking at "high-end" directors. Breaking Dawn is the longest in Stephenie Meyer's 4-book series lengthwise and it's the most graphic -- presenting birth, attempted murder, death, and of course vampire bites. Published on August 2, 2008, it has a happy ending for most of the characters. Divided into 3 parts, the 1st and 3rd sections are told from the point of view of Bella (Kristen Stewart), and the second section from the perspective of Jacob (Taylor Lautner). It prominently features all 3 favorite characters including Edward (Robert Pattinson). Summit Entertainment no doubt will save money by making these Twilight Saga movies #4 and #5 back to back. Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg (who's written all the Twilight Saga films)
is currently adapting Breaking Dawn. Eclipse, the 3rd movie, will be released on June 30th."

You know what this means: we now have three
more Twilight saga movies to wait in line at the movie theater for! :)
