‘Dreamgirls’ Director to Helm Breaking Dawn, Because That Makes Perfect Sense

Alex Blagg / April 8, 2010

Is Summit Entertainment taking a radical left turn and turning the final Twilight installment into a musical? Director Bill Condon, who lensed the big-screen sing-alongs Dreamgirls and Chicago, has reportedly been offered the directing gig for Breaking Dawn, the last installment of the vampire movie saga. Condon is said to be in negotiations to accept the gig.

Condon reportedly beat out Sofia Coppola, M. Night Shyamalan, Stephen Daldry and Gus Van Sant for the movie, which will begin filming in November and, as many predicted, will reportedly be broken up into two flicks.

Can’t wait to see what kind of big musical number they come up with for the birth scene…
