Twilight Eyes Oscars

Well here's some interesting news on the Twilight front.  Summit is really trying to go all out with the ending to their popular tween romance franchise when it comes to directors.  Entertainment Weekly reports none other than three Academy Award nominated directors have been courted by the company to direct Breaking Dawn.  Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Milk), Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation, Marie Antoinette), and Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, Gods and Monsters) have been reportedly approached to helm the fourth installment. 

All I have to say is just wow.  Just a wow.  Really a diverse group of top tier directors.  Can't say that Summit isn't shooting high for the end.  Within about a week or so screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg will have completed a treatment for the fourth movie.  After that, should be hearing word if the movie will be split and whose on the director shortlist.  The third installment to the franchise Eclipse is due out June 30, 2009.
