It’s official, Bill Condon has agreed to direct the two part finale to the Twilight saga Breaking Dawn. Let’s see what everyone is saying about that…
Erik Feig from Summit Entertainment says: “Bringing Stephenie Meyer’s Breaking Dawn to the screen requires a graceful and intelligent hand and we believe Bill Condon is exactly the right steward, having shown equal and abundant talents of immense creativity and subtle sensitivity”
Translation: “Making Stephenie Meyer’s Breaking Dawn watchable requires someone who has seen a film before and possibly read the book, we believe Bill Condon is right for the job having totally won an Oscar and said he had heard of the films.”
Author Stephenie Meyer says: “I’m so thrilled that Bill wants to work with us. I think he’s going to be a great fit, and I’m excited to see what he does with the material.”
Translation: “I’m frankly amazed we managed to get him to work with us. I’m excited to see if he can make this book into a film less ridiculous that the rest.”
Bill Condon says: “I’m very excited to get the chance to bring the climax of this saga to life on-screen. As fans of the series know, this is a one-of-a-kind book – and we’re hoping to create an equally unique cinematic experience”
Translation: “I’m very excited to get a job as I haven’t really worked much since the Oscar. I really hope to distance this film from the other terrible predecessors and create a unique cinematic experience.”
