Twilight fans are rejoicing (or groaning) over the news the final Twilight book, Breaking Dawn, may be split into two films. The rumor isn’t new, but apparently the idea is starting to really get some steam behind it. Summit Entertainment is reportedly seriously considering splitting Breaking Dawn into two movies at this point, according to a report from Variety.
Reminiscent of the decision to split the final Harry Potter book into two films, a two-film interpretation of Breaking Dawn would allow more exploration of the complexity of the final Twilight book.
The big question is, will all the big hitters be on board with doing a fifth Twilight film? Director Chris Weitz may be the most likely to jump ship, since he’s said another Twilight PR tour would pretty much kill him. We do hope he was joking with that.
