From E! Online:
Dreamgirls director Bill Condon is the frontrunner to direct the Breaking Dawn flicks, or so Entertainment Weekly is reporting.
While nothing is “official” (geez—who’s had it with that word?) Condon seems “close” to nailing down a final deal with Summit.
But is he the right choice?
While the possibility of Gus Van Sant gave everyone warm and fuzzy feelings, we think Bill is the perfect guy for the possibly multi-film job.
Think a slightly more professional Catherine Hardwicke. We still say it was the lack of budget that made Twilight a little painful at times, and, we actually didn’t think it was Hardwicke who effed it up. But as the studio mantra goes (and Summit insiders do not diverge here), it’s always “the director’s fault.”
Bill Condon is corky and will bring a different, yet traditional enough view to the final (yeah, right) Twilight films. Hello, Gods and Monsters anyone?
Let’s just say BC will so be in tune to handle this rather sexually liberal cast. And we mean that in the best way possible, babes! There are how many vampire Vices after all?
But, clearly, it’s not just our opinion that will give Condon the final in.
“So far, the main cast members have had positive feedback about this possibility,” says one of our studio spies.
What do you think Twi-hards, do you approve? We, as usual, are on the edges of our Robsten seats to find out.
