The Twilight Saga - Breaking Dawn - What Can We Expect?

The Twilight Saga - Breaking Dawn - What Can We Expect?

By Brianna Peters

The fourth and final installment of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn, is said to debut on the silver screen sometime in 2011 in the United States. This highly anticipated movie will tie up all the loose ends for those who have followed Edward, Bella, Jacob and the rest of the packs and clans whose stories became tied together in previous films. Breaking Dawn will be directed by a newcomer to the saga. The previous directors have been David Slade, Chris Weitz and Catherine Hardwicke. The one at the top of the list for the fourth is Bill Condon, director of musical film Dreamgirls in 2006.

The other two directors in the running with Condon are Gus Van Sant and Sofia Coppola; no one has yet to officially take the job. The stars of the saga, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, are personally leaning towards director Gus Van Sant. Although each movie has had someone new to direct and envision, the outcome thus far has been seamless. It would be hard to guess that it wasn't the same director across the board.

The cast for Breaking Dawn is, for now, the same as the other films. The only casting mishap that has yet to occur is with the character Victoria who was played by a different actress in the third, Eclipse, from the first two. However, this character won't be needed in this fourth part of the story.

There are some questions as to whether this ending will be split into two parts since much acclaimed fantasy forerunner Harry Potter will do so in the seventh and final film. As of right now, the question is unanswered officially; in fact, it's one of a few remaining major decisions that have yet to be made and is keeping the filming process from moving forward. If it means anything, though, most of the main actors as well as the author of the books herself, Stephenie Meyer, hope to see it split into two separate movies. There is a lot of ground that will need to be covered in the thickest book of the saga. There have even been questions as to whether the movie will come out in 3-D; this is probably to quench the currently popular craze for this added effect to action and adventure films. As far as the actors are concerned, they're not quite as enthusiastic about the possibility and would rather not see this happen.

With Eclipse coming out in theaters so soon after New Moon (seven months later), the public is beginning to wonder how far behind Breaking Dawn will be. The movie has yet to even begin production because the major decisions, like the Director and splitting the film in two, have yet to be solidified.

With the first three films coming out in enough time to keep the fans happily anticipating, the lack of concern for making the executive decisions regarding this fourth film is becoming a little worrisome. The Twilight Saga has a very dedicated fan-base. Regardless of how it's put onto the screen, the public is already setting their visual expectations and craving the final outcome.
