Candyman Helmer on Board Twilight


Officially directing the fourth installment

Gods and Monsters and Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh director Bill Condon is officially locked in to direct The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.

The fourth entry is currently being written by Melissa Rosenberg, and will star Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. Wyck Godfrey, Karen Rosenfelt, and Stephenie Meyer will produce the project.

“Bringing Stephenie Meyer’s Breaking Dawn to the screen requires a graceful and intelligent hand and we believe Bill Condon is exactly the right steward, having shown equal and abundant talents of immense creativity and subtle sensitivity,” said Erik Feig, President of Production and Acquisitions, for Summit Entertainment.

Condon says, “I’m very excited to get the chance to bring the climax of this saga to life on-screen. As fans of the series know, this is a one-of-a-kind book – and we’re hoping to create an equally unique cinematic experience.”

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, meanwhile, opens on June 30.
