Irish American director Bill Condon is in negotiations to take charge of the "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” movie.
Summit Entertainment has been in talks with Sofia Coppola, Gus Van Sant, Fernando Meirelles and Stephen Daldry, but Condon is rumored to have won the contract.
It is thought that Condon will push back his Marlon Wayans-led Richard Pryor biopic and “Salmon Fishing In The Yemen” to work on “Breaking Dawn.”
Condon, the director of the Oscar-winning “Dreamgirls”, will work on the films for the fourth novel, “Breaking Dawn”. The 756 page novel will be split into two films with the first part focusing on Bella's (Kristen Stewart) marriage and pregnancy, and part two following her transition from mortal to vampire.
Before “Breaking Dawn” hits the box office the third film in the series, “Eclipse”, hits the theater on June 30.
