Breaking Dawn Split Is Official

Though we’ve all known about it for a while, Summit Entertainment finally confirmed today that “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” will be released as two separate films.

In fact they even announced the release date for ‘Part One’ as November 18th 2011. No doubt Part Two will hit late June 2012 if the film series holds to the current patterns.

Bill Condon will direct both films and all the key cast will return including all the members of the Cullen family. Shooting on the project kicks off in the Fall.

Meanwhile star Robert Pattinson has joked with French magazine Premiere (via The Stuff about ‘Dawn’, saying “I would love it if Breaking Dawn became a totally hard core series for adults. I wonder how they’ll bring that to the big screen.”

As ‘Dawn’ features Edward and Bella having a honeymoon on a Brazillian island, complete with rough sex, many are wondering how the subject matter will be handled in a PG-13 way.

Pattinson laughingly adds “Can you imagine if they decided to go full out and Twilight suddenly became this totally hard core series for adults with nude scenes? Summit would suddenly become the most progressive studio in the world. It would be funny.”
