Condon Favorite For “Breaking Dawn”?

Oscar-winning filmmaker Bill Condon (“Dreamgirls,” “Kinsey,” “Gods and Monsters”) has emerged as the number one choice to direct the two-part feature “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” reports Deadline New York.

According to the site Summit Entertainment hasn’t signed him, but negotiations are underway after several strong meetings. Both films will be shot back-to-back starting in the Fall.

Condon has been attached to direct an adaptation of “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” over at Fox Searchlight and a Richard Pryor biopic over at Sony Pictures. If the deal for ‘Dawn’ is set, it’s likely both projects would have to wait.
