Bill Condon for Breaking Dawn?

Deadline Hollywood is today reporting that Summit are in final negotiations to have 'Dreamgirls' director Bill Condon helm the final book in the Twilight Saga 'Breaking Dawn'.  According to Deadline;

 "Bill Condon has emerged as the number one choice to direct the final two installments of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, I’m told. Summit Entertainment hasn’t signed him, but I’m told that after several strong meetings, they are negotiating. Condon was among a list of A-list directors approved by Summit and Twilight author Stephenie Meyer.”

Aint it Cool is also backing this set up saying 'it sounds like he could give this franchise the gloriously campy sendoff it richly deserves.' and questioning if Condon would have input on Melissa Rosenberg's screenplay.  You can read the Aint it Cool article HERE.

All speculation for now with NOTHING confirmed but as the Twilight Lexicon notes Deadline broke the news originally about Summit speaking to Gus Van Sant and Sofia Coppola.
