Even though the third Twilight film isn't here yet, Summit is already reaching out to directors to helm the two-part finale, Breaking Dawn. The studio's wish-list includes three Oscar-winning filmmakers: Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation), Gus Van Sant (Milk), and Bill Condon (Dreamgirls).


Recently, there were rumors that New Moon director Chris Weitz might be returning, but he denied the rumors, choosing instead to work on a more personal project. In the meantime, until screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg's detailed treatment reaches the directors, no decisions will be made.

The first teaser trailer for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse just recently premiered on YouTube, where it has garnered 8.6 million hits in five days. The first two chapters in the series grossed just under $500 million at the US box office.
