The filmmaker who will turn BREAKING DAWN, Stephenie Meyer’s conclusion to her TWILIGHT saga, into a two-part movie for Summit Entertainment has been chosen. And like ECLIPSE’s David Slade, he has more than a bit of a horror background.
Variety and a whole bunch of other sources reported yesterday that Bill Condon (pictured) will direct BREAKING DAWN, scripted (like all the other TWILIGHT movies) by Melissa Rosenberg. While he’s best known recently for big-screen musicals (having written and directed DREAMGIRLS and scripted CHICAGO), Condon got his start in the genre field, collaborating on the screenplays for 1981’s STRANGE BEHAVIOR and 1983’s STRANGE INVADERS with director Michael Laughlin, helming and co-writing 1987’s Southern Gothic thriller SISTER, SISTER and directing 1995’s CANDYMAN: FAREWELL TO THE FLESH. He won an Oscar for scripting 1998’s GODS AND MONSTERS, a biopic about FRANKENSTEIN director James Whale; previously, Summit had discussed BREAKING DAWN with other Academy Award-winning filmmakers, including Gus Van Sant, Sofia Coppola and Stephen Daldry.
