The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (2011)

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene, Peter Facinelli
Director: Bill Condon

U.S. Opening Date: November 18, 2011

A fourth Twilight Saga movie is about as inevitable as Death Itself considering how much money this franchise has made thus far.

However the planned film presents a lot of challenges for Summit Entertainment which owns the rights for all four of Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight books.

For starters there is the novel’s length: Meyer’s 2008 novel clocks in at a whopping 756 pages! According to Variety the studio is considering breaking the novel into two movies like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

[WARNING: PLOT SPOILERS HEAD] Then there’s the fact that author Stephanie Meyer considers the novel to be unfilmable because of to Renesmee, Bella’s baby. (The book focuses on Bella and Edward's marriage and her subsequent pregnancy.) Meyer believes that an actress could not play Renesmee because she is a baby but has complete awareness. “The one thing that I’ve never seen is a CGI human being who truly looks real,” Meyer stated.

She did however add that “they develop amazing new technologies everyday, and we've got a little time left.” [END SPOILERS]

Then there are also concerns about making a PG-13 movie out of Breaking Dawn, a tall order considering the book’s complex and graphic storylines – not to mention the birth of a half-vampire, half-human baby!

Filming would most likely start in Vancouver in spring 2010. Expect the main cast to return.
