The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn director has now been officially announced by Summit Entertainment. ‘Dreamgirls’ director Bill Condon has been hired to helm the film, which will be released in two parts. He won an Academy Award in 1999 for ‘Gods and Monsters’ in the Best Writing category and also directed the film.
Due to the hugely high-profile nature of this production, most of the details that have been worked out are not being officially released. Summit Entertainment also had been very elusive to releasing production details for New Moon and Eclipse, however Breaking Dawn has been much more drawn-out and secretive.
A new production company, Sunswept Entertainment, has been brought on board for Breaking Dawn. Sunswept Entertainment was created by Karen Rosenfelt, who is the daughter of former MGM Chairman & CEO Frank Edward Rosenfelt. Karen Rosenfelt served as Producer on both “Twilight” and on “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”. She did not work on “New Moon”, but is producing “Breaking Dawn through her Sunswept Entertainment banner.
There will likely be an extensive talent search for the role of Renesmee Cullen, the half-vampire, half-human daughter of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, just as there was through Actorcast for the roles of Seth and Leah Clearwater in “Eclipse”. Many other new roles are also to be cast, as there are a large number of additional characters in Breaking Dawn.

To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation , loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the date of two tribes hangs. Now Bella has made her decision; a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating and unfathomable consequences.
