Kristen Stewart has confirmed that three Oscar nominated, and in two cases Oscar winning, directors have been approached to helm the final act in The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn.
Gus Van Sant of Milk and Elephant fame is the only director to have confirmed having talks with Summit studios while Lost in Translation‘s Sofia Coppola and Dreamgirls‘ Bill Condon are merely rumoured at this point.
While it is nice to see Summit try to raise to their game for the final two films I would be amazed if they actually managed to get one of these acclaimed directors on board. Also as these are directors known for their signature styles – surely why they were chosen – would the final films look and feel different to their predecessors or would the director be forced to curtail their creative ideas to fit in with the franchise’s style?
Isn’t it a bit late in the game for Twilight to try and make a credible film, the first was an embarrassment. Most importantly if they get a good director am I going to be tempted to actually watch Breaking Dawn?
