    Dreamgirls Condon Strong Choice to Direct Twilight: Breaking Dawn

    Finally, Summit Entertainment is confirming what we already had heard: that Dreamgirls director and last year's Oscar co-producer Bill Condon will direct the fourth film in the series, Breaking Dawn. This is by far the trickiest--and thickest-- of the four Stephenie Meyer novels, and the film world ...
