Twilight: Breaking Dawn Announced
Pattinson confirms fourth Twilight film

20 May 2009  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

submit to reddit

Cannes got a serious dose of Twilight fever yesterday with Robert Pattinson letting slip that there will be a fourth installment in the Twilight saga and he will be appearing in it. While this may come close to being the least surprising news in the history of movies ever, it does confirm Pattinson's continued commitment to the role of Edward Cullen despite a schedule that's increasingly jam-packed.

The tousled one dropped in on the festival en route to Italy where he's shooting the final scenes of New Moon. He'll then set to work on his next project, romance-cum-drama Remember Me, before heading back to Vancouver to wrap up filming on Eclipse. Presumably, principal photography on Twilight: Breaking Dawn will start soon after that, after Pattinson has had a cup of tea and a lie-down.

The plot of Breaking Dawn is far too spoilerific to even outline here with provoking bloody reprisals, so click here for a full synopsis.

Summit Entertainment are likely to stick to their policy of hiring a new director for each film, which means a fresh face to follow Catherine Hardwicke, Chris Weitz and David Slade. We've got a strange hankering for Neil Marshall. Who's your pick?

Put it this way
This book is pretty gorey. No doubt about it. I'm really interested as to how they go about this one. If it earns a PG rating I won't be watching it. it needs the action, otherwise its a boring romance. The action in the books is what makes it interesting for us guys. Please, dont take out the cool fight scenes! More

i'm with the 15 or 18 film being made - there's no way they can miss out the whole second section of the book without it being too twee and rubbish just for the teenie groups......make it as visceral as possible!!! More

Oooooh i agree, it can get a bit nasty. If i had my way they will do it in all it's 'gorey' (see what I did there) and get an 18 cert, and by the time it arrives on screen, the teenage girls may be old enough?? Possibly More

Pattinson's Projects
Pattinson will be filming Unbound Captives after Eclipse and then Bel Ami with Declan Donnellan directing. Remember Me's script has been finalised by Jenny Lumet who worked previously on Rachel Getting Married which got Ann Hathaway an oscar nomination. The script is on the Black List in the US which means its been highly recommended by senior people in the Industry in America. The story will have a big twist at the end. Unbound Captives - Pattinson will play a white Indian. Someone who ha More

Having read all of the books, I have to say I'm not sure what they're going to do with Breaking Dawn. I won't say too much because of spoilers, but if they stick with showing what happens in the first half of the book, it might be a little nasty to show to all of those innocent little teenage girls....
