Twilight: Breaking Dawn Is Not Greenlit
With all the fan excitement over the Twilight movies itís easy to forget that, despite all the interest, this isnít exactly Lord of the Rings. The first movie made a hefty $191 million domestically, a nice number, but Superman Returns made even more than that and thereís no sequel in sight. Twilight has in its favor that it costs very little to make, but apparently that wasnít enough for Summit Entertainment to greenlight more than a couple of Twilight movies at a time.
There are four books in the Twilight series with the second and third of the franchise, New Moon and Eclipse respectively, already in varying stages of movie production. Most had assumed, given all the enthusiasm for it, that a movie based on the final book Breaking Dawn was greenlit as well. Not so.
According to Gossip Cop there are currently no plans for a fourth Twilight movie. A Summit Entertainment rep tells them that the movie hasnít been greenlit, nor have they begun to make any decisions about start date, director, or anything else.
Of course that doesnít mean it wonít be greenlit, they may simply be waiting around to make certain the second film, The Twilight Saga: New Moon does as well as everyone thinks it will. With two movies still to go, thereís plenty of time left to start planning Breaking Dawn, so put down that pitchfork Twilight fans. Itíll get done, it just may take a little longer than you thought.
