When we learned it was only salary negotiations keeping The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn from becoming a two-part movie, we knew it was only a matter of time before the official announcement was made. And now that Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene have their contracts in place, the news is out-- Breaking Dawn will be two movies, and it's possible the Twilight Saga will never, ever end.

OK, I exaggerate-- the series will end at some point, though it's telling that they're only announcing the release date for the first film, which hits theaters on November 18, 2011. Presumably at some point during the already crowded summer of 2012-- Batman 3! The Avengers! Spider-Man!-- we'll get the final Twilight film, and everyone with irrational fears of tween girls can finally crawl out of their caves and breathe the fresh air once again.

Full press release from Summit below:
