HBO’s Tilda, the very evidently Nikki Finke-inspired series spearheaded by director Bill Condon, may be edging further into The Devil Wears Prada territory. Diane Keaton is already on board as Tilda Watski, “the most feared woman in Hollywood,” and now Ellen Page is signing on to play Carolyn, a studio assistant who falls under Tilda’s spell.

Just as we hear that Megan Fox has been given the boot by Michael Bay for Transformers 3, there is news that secondary Twilight players Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene will remain employed for the last film(s) in the series.

See, while Summit is reportedly ready to say, “yeah, we’re splitting Breaking Dawn into two films,” there has been a hold-up. Lutz and Green wanted more money for their services in the fifth film. A lot more money. And, depending on who you believe, they didn’t get as much as they were asking for. But they are still in the film(s). Read More »

Because I know you’re all hanging on this info: Summit has scheduled Breaking Dawn, the last film in The Twilight Saga, for release on November 18, 2011. For those keeping track, that’s a year and a half after the release of Eclipse, the third film in the series, which makes Breaking Dawn the chapter that will have the longest production schedule since the series began.

Is that because it will be two films, rather than one? Summit still hasn’t announced whether it will split the last book into two films, likely because there is a lot of contract work to be done with the cast. And if their reps are doing their jobs, chances are there’s some hardball being played. But all sources say that Summit wants two films, and it’s a safe bet that there will be two halves of Breaking Dawn on screens when all is said and done. But for now, we get at least some of the final book’s pregnancy/birthing/vampire baby insanity just before Thanksgiving next year. [THR]

So we’ve got Oscar-winner Bill Condon directing Breaking Dawn, the final stretch of The Twilight Saga, which may be one film or may yet be split into two. Today Condon published a note to Twilight fans via Facebook, more or less as a way of saying ‘hello.’  Read More »

The ‘who will direct Breaking Dawn‘ stories are getting pretty crazy. Not long ago, Summit reportedly started approaching a pretty high-minded list of directors to direct the last two-part chapter of The Twilight Saga: Sofia Coppola, Gus Van Sant, Stephen Daldry and Bill Condon, among others.

Stephen Daldry recently took the Jonathan Safran Foer adaptation Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close instead. (Good choice.) Now it seems like other projects Bill Condon had lined up may be stalled, and that he’ll be the man for the final chapter(s) of Twilight. Read More »
