It takes a village to bring vampires to life — on the silver screen, that is.
In a special Facebook post, director Bill Condon has revealed his impressive team of production members who are going to turn the “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” fantasy into reality.
"Wonderful, imaginative people all and very exciting, intense times for us," Condon promises.
First up is Guillermo Navarro, who took home 2006’s Academy Award for Best Cinematography for the whimsical “Pan’s Labyrinth,” and now leads the way as the cinematographer.
Next, the task of creating heart-stopping vampire looks lies in the crafty hands of costume designer Michael Wilkinson and makeup designer Jean Black. Wilkinson’s creations have appeared in “300” and “Watchmen, ”and Black was part of the team that took Brad Pitt from frail old man to devilishly handsome youth (thank you!) in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” which nabbed the Oscar for Best Achievement in Makeup Design. We're guessing he'll be using some of those mad skills on nine-year-old Mackenzie Foy.
Rounding out the new names is production designer Richard Sherman, who previously worked with Condon on “Gods and Monsters” and “Kinsey," and Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor John Bruno. Bruno has created some of the most striking special effects to-date, with his skills giving life to everything from1982’s “Poltergeist” to 2009’s “Avatar.”
In Hollywood, the land of dreams, we can’t image a better dream team to create those smoldering vampires with icy stares who keep us up at night.
