Thanks to Run Away with Fate
Here's the article from Twilight Examiner
Breaking Dawn, the fourth installment of the Twilight series has gone from "optioned property" to "script," which means that Melissa Rosenberg is one busy lady.
For weeks, we've been speculating about whether this portion of the story of our favorite Twilight characters (one which many Twilight fans to be of more than mild importance) will be brought to the big screen.
It appears that crossed fingers can relax, now, though. Instead of being listed as "optioned property" on IMDb Pro, Breaking Dawn is now in "script," and "[p]lanning to start in late spring 2010."
The plans for production are, quite frankly, right on schedule, with the quickened pace of the Twilight series' production (a fact which appeases many of even the harshest critics as - we all well know - many of the characters' physical characteristics are not subject to change as are, say, the humans portraying them). Despite the potential obstacles for production of the film, it appears that Summit Entertainment and the good people behind The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse are fully aware of the fact that most fans of the series would be quite angered by the failure to complete the series.
That said, it is good news for those that wish to see Breaking Dawn become The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn that the status has changed. It is but another step in the road to confirmation, as rumor seems to have to build upon rumor before we will ever see an official press release on the matter.
In a related piece of news, a recent Variety article about Summit Entertainment, the production and distribution company responsible for Twilight, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse recently hinted at the present status of Breaking Dawn, indicating that it was an accepted fact that it would, indeed, be made.
Now for the hardest (at least, historically) part: who will direct? After Catherine Hardwicke, Chris Weitz, and David Slade - three directors with a distinct and individual style and vision, which will likely be seen in the varying sects of the Twilight saga - who should take the helm of Breaking Dawn?
