FROM MTV.COM: Summit Entertainment might have been listening when Kristen Stewart gave her approval for Chris Weitz to helm “Breaking Dawn” — that or they’re thrilled with the impressive box-office take of “New Moon” in its first two weeks. According to a report in Variety, the “Breaking Dawn” gig is Weitz’s if he wants it, though no official offer has been made. What’s more, it might actually turn out to be two gigs. As has long been rumored, sources told Variety that Summit plans to split the final book into two separate movies, to be shot back to back.
Both films would likely be scripted by Melissa Rosenberg, who has penned the first three adaptations in the franchise. Author Stephenie Meyer must first approve the two-movie decision.
