The director has been chosen from a long list of aspirants names and Sofia Coppola and Gus Van Sant has been chosen by Summit Entertainment for shooting the fourth and last version, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn in the vampire franchise which is based on Stephenie Meyer's novel.
Condon said, “I’m very excited to get the chance to bring the climax of this saga to life on screen. As fans of the series know, this is a one-of-a-kind book and we’re hoping to create an equally unique cinematic experience."
Erik Feig, the president of the film studio said that Condon is the right choice for the movie as he has done great work in writing and directing Dreamgirls, Kinsey and Gods and Monsters with great sensitivity and sensibility.
