"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" production has been greenlit by Summit
Entertainment and publisher Alan Baltes has the latest information.

BURBANK, Calif., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The fourth saga in the Twilight
Series is going back to it's roots and will be filmed in Portland, Oregon. The
original Twilight film was shot there. In addition, a new production company,
Sunswept Entertainment, has been brought on board for Breaking Dawn. Sunswept
Entertainment was created by Karen Rosenfelt, who is the daughter of former
MGM Chairman & CEO Frank Edward Rosenfelt. Karen Rosenfelt served as Producer
on both "Twilight" and on "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse". She did not work on
"New Moon", but is producing "Breaking Dawn" through her Sunswept
Entertainment banner.

There will likely be quite a bit of tweaking to the fourth novel in the series
due to the explicit sex and birth scenes to avoid an R rating. Inside sources
confirm that Breaking Dawn may be filmed and released in two parts - "The
Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I", and "Part II". Although this has not
been confirmed officially by Summit, author Stephenie Meyer has stated, "It
would have to be made into multiple movies because it's hard to imagine it
fitting into ninety minutes".

Fans can expect a massive talent search for the role of Renesmee Cullen, the
half-vampire, half-human daughter of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, just as
there was for the roles of Seth and Leah Clearwater in "Eclipse".

David Slade is directing "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse", but it is unknown if he
will also direct any of the Breaking Dawn films. "Breaking Dawn: Part I"
should start shooting in September 2010, with a release scheduled for 2011.
