Director Bill Condon, who faces the epic task of helming the final film installment of “Twilight,” said he hasn’t even thought about bringing the wildly popular vampire series to a conclusion with “Breaking Dawn.”
“I’m not even in Twilight-land yet,” the director told PopcornBiz.
Instead, the Oscar-winning director is kept up at night by fixating on his HBO pilot “Tilda” starring Diane Keaton and Ellen Page. “That’s all I’m thinking about right now,” he said.
In the pilot, Keaton plays an entertainment blogger “who takes on big entrenched interests” in show business. To prepare for the part, Keaton has become a bit of blogger junkie.
After he’s done with that, Condon will start thinking about the “Breaking Dawn” and the series’ conclusion. The thought of the seemingly daunting task before him only gets Condon pumped up. He even said he’s “excited” to shoot Bella’s extreme birth scene.
“I’m just so turned on by this book,” Condon said. “It’s everything you hope could happen in a book, plus the strangest things you could ever imagine.”
