Another Name Thrown into the Ring to Direct The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn
There's pedigree and then there's the kind of pedigree the newest name being bandied about to direct The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn carries. Despite only directing three feature films over the course of his career, Stephen Daldry has been nominated for an Oscar for each of them.
We can thank the LA Times for this latest news concerning the final chapter of The Twilight Saga. Still no word on if it'll wind up being two films or just one, but it is supposed to start shooting this fall so Summit needs to be making up its mind soon.
Daldry joins a list that includes Sofia Coppola, Bill Condon, and Gus Van Sant, all of whom have been approached about taking on the fourth film in the Twilight franchise. Like those three, there are not yet indications Daldry would actually take the gig, but the fact that Summit has reached out to him suggests where its intentions lie for the fourth film.
Having already gone indie with Catherine Hardwicke, polished/commercial with Chris Weitz, and genre auteur with David Slade for the franchise's first three movies, Summit clearly wants a high-end prestige filmmaker to handle the fourth picture.
Look for more on this story soon.
