The Dreamgirls director has reportedly had several strong meetings with Summit concerning Breaking Dawn, which will be shot as two films. Gus Van Sant, Sofia Coppola and Fernando Meirelles have also allegedly been considered.


Each installment in the franchise has been directed by a different person. Catherine Hardwicke started in 2008, Chris Weitz directed New Moon and David Slade helmed Eclipse.

Eclipse opens on June 30, and that is a highly advantageous release date for a film that is aimed predominately at teens who will be off from school. Expect records to be broken.
