Bill Condon of 'Dreamgirls' to direct next 'Twilight' film

Friday April 30, 2010

The vampires of Twilight might have a little more sparkle in the fourth instalment of the series, Breaking Dawn, as it has been confirmed that Bill Condon, director of 2006's Dreamgirls, will take the reins.

Bill, who won an Oscar for the script of Gods & Monsters, said he is excited to work on the film, which is based on Stephenie Meyer's best-selling novel.

"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," he revealed.

The script, which is currently in the works, brings Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lauter and Kristen Stewart together again on the big screen, and is set to start filming in November.
