Breaking Dawn Makes MTV’s list of movies shrouded in secrecy for 2011

Below is what MTV said about Breaking Dawn.

Check out who else made the list at MTV. (Can’t wait for Super 8 movie they included either!!!)

Where do you think Breaking Dawn part one will end?

“Breaking Dawn – Part 1,” November 18
What, you say, everyone on your block knows how the “Twilight” saga ends? Well, sure, we know the plot. But do we know where “Part 1” will end and “Part 2” pick up? Do we know which characters some of the fresh franchise faces will be playing? Do we know how director Bill Condon will handle the famously bloody birth scene, and if it will even be in the first film? And heck, is there still a chance the movie could be released in 3-D? Questions, questions.

Top ten Twilight moments to look forward to in 2011

The Twilight Examiner has made a list of the Top ten Twilight moments to look forward to in 2011.

Check out everything she lists here.

Here is an excerpt:

Breaking Dawn photos, trailer, and promos

Like with Eclipse in 2010, fans can most certainly look forward to the moments when new still images, trailers, and TV spots start rolling out for Breaking Dawn. Of course, it won’t happen all at once or that simply, but throughout the year, we’ll start to see more and more from the movie as the theatrical release date for the film begins to near. No doubt the first trailer will come by way of an important event (for example, with New Moon, the first trailer showed at the MTV Movie Awards), and still images will come out a few at a time, so the release of these things will probably become their own little events. That’s always pretty fun for Twilight fans.

Stephenie Meyer Confirms Mackenzie Foy As Renesmee

Stephenie Meyer left the following message on the Twilight Facebook Page:

Hi Everyone!

Congratulations to the Twilight Facebook Fan Page! 15 million fans! You guys never cease to amaze me. In other news…

Very excited about our new Renesmee, Mackenzie Foy. She’s an amazing young actress and I’m excited to work with her. I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer!

Bill Condon for Breaking Dawn?

FearNet has an article up stating Why they think Bill Condon Could Be Good for Breaking Dawn.

Check out the article here.

Remember, Summit has still not confirmed a director for the movie!

Here is an excerpt:

Genre Experience

While Condon is best known for his more recent Oscar-caliber work (see above), a look back in his filmography reveals a surprising knack for genre fare that one might not otherwise expect from the man behind Chicago and Dreamgirls. After a career stint as a journalist, Condon entered showbiz as the screenwriter of 1981’s low-budget horror spoof Strange Behavior (AKA Dead Kids), an Illinois-set Ozsploitation flick followed by a sci-fi sequel, Strange Invaders. He made his directorial debut a few years later with the 1987 Gothic thriller Sister, Sister and in 1995 helmed Candyman 2: Farewell to the Flesh (the one that reveals the Candyman’s tragic origin story, involving a lynch mob, honey, and a swarm of bees).

A few years later, Condon left behind the horror fare to begin his better known period, starting with the critically-acclaimed Gods and Monsters — a biopic of horror director James Whale (Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein). That film demonstrated Condon’s knowledge of the horror genre and his ability to infuse it with humanistic storytelling, which will be key in adapting Breaking Dawn, a story that balances Bella Swan’s involvement in the vampire and werewolf worlds with themes of marriage, family, and romance.

Director Bill Condon for Breaking Dawn?

Lot of articles floating around the net that Summit may be narrowing down their list of Breaking Dawn directors. Director Bill Condon seems to be on the top of that list now.

MTV has an article talking about him and lists pros and cons for him directing Breaking Dawn.

Check it all out here.

Remember no director has been officially confirmed by Summit.
