Chris Weitz Not Keen on Returning to The Twilight Saga for Breaking Dawn
With the DVD and Blu-ray release of The Twilight Saga: New Moon just a few short weeks away (at 12:01 AM on March 20th to be exact), its director, Chris Weitz, has been making the interview rounds, and today came word that as far the Breaking Dawn installment is concerned, he thinks someone else should probably take the job.
In a chat with MTV, Weitz also commented on both the possibility of Breaking Dawn being in 3D and whether it should be one film or two.
"I think that 3D is great so long as it's not used in a gimmicky fashion, and it can supply extraordinary depth to the visual experience," Weitz told MTV News. He further stated, "I think that it makes sense for it to be split into two parts because it's quite a dense book with a lot going on."
Now back to whether or not he's the best man for the job should Summit offer it to him. "I think I'm on record saying I have a two-and-a-half-year-old son, and each one of these movies — especially because it'd be such a long shoot as 'Breaking Dawn' — it kind of brings me to the edge of my physical and mental endurance. And I just don't believe I have it in me."
He did hedge his bets a little with an "of course I'm interested" just in case, but it looks like the fans clamoring for his return for the conclusion of the series had best start looking elsewhere.
