“Breaking Dawn” has reportedly gotten the green light by Summit Entertainment, as the fourth movie in the “Twilight” saga, according to TheWrap.com, although a rep for Summit Entertainment, the film’s producer, told MTV News late Monday afternoon that the report is untrue.
TheWrap.com reports that a source close to the film’s production said that “Breaking Dawn” will start shooting in the spring of 2010.
“Breaking Dawn” would follow production of the third “Twilight” film, “Eclipse,” which Drew Barrymore recently revealed she won’t be directing. Chris Weitz replaced Catherine Hardwicke on “New Moon,” and it is widely believed that Juan Antonio Bayona will tackle “Eclipse,” although a director has yet to be confirmed by Summit.
The anonymous Summit executive who spoke to The Wrap said that there was no production schedule for “Breaking Dawn” yet and no current plans to shoot in Vancouver, but the stars of the film will reportedly get some time off after finishing “New Moon” before they begin work on “Eclipse.”
“Twilight” was released last November and was an instant smash at the box office. Because of the first film’s success, “New Moon” was green-lit and will be released on November 20, 2009, and “Eclipse” should be in theaters in June 2010. “Breaking Dawn” would hit the release docket later that year.
Just last week, the rest of the “New Moon” cast was revealed, including “Twilight” newcomers Dakota Fanning and Michael Sheen as members of the “legendary Volturi, a venerable coven of vampires who weigh and impose the laws of the vampire world.”
t seems like we see something related to Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series everywhere we turn. From “Team Edward” T-shirts to movie release parties, it’s hard to escape the phenomenon that stemmed from four poorly researched books about the supernatural.
Bella Swan moves from Phoenix to Forks, Wash., and falls in love with the mysterious Edward Cullen, whom she later discovers is a vampire. Anything that could keep Edward and Bella apart ensues, putting off the inevitable: her becoming a vampire.
The characters are very obnoxious. Bella has grown up being painfully average and not outstanding at anything, so she is quite taken aback when the kids at her new school seem to want to be her friend.
Edward at first tries to keep as far from her as possible. He eventually admits that he is a vampire and spends his sleepless nights watching her.
Jacob Black, from the Quiluete tribe in La Push, becomes Bella’s best friend. He tips her off to Edward’s true identity, but also says that he doesn’t believe in tribe superstitions. When he becomes a werewolf, he is forced to believe in these legends.
Common knowledge about vampires no longer applies. Edward and his family do not drink human blood; they hunt animals and call themselves “vegetarians.”
They do not die a painful death and turn to dust in the sun; instead, it makes them sparkle. That’s right; apparently vampires sparkle.
The plot is predictable and relies heavily on coincidences the readers do not yet know.
In “Eclipse,” an army of young, untrained vampires is unleashed on Seattle. The Cullens plan to intervene to stop the slaughter, and lucky for them, Jasper just happens to have experience with the training and destruction of “newborns,” new vampires, from his living through a vampire war in the south.
There are also a lot of “duh” moments, when it seems unbelievable that one of the supposedly-intelligent characters hasn’t figured the problem out yet.
If you can get past the flaws in the two most important parts of any book, you might see it as more than literary trash. Reading tip: Pretend you’re 13 again. It won’t make it any better, but you might actually enjoy it… like I did.

Potential Production Schedule Conflict When MTV informed Twilight star Robert Pattinson at the 2009 Oscars red carpet that the Eclipse release date is 30 June 2010, he expressed his ignorance and surprise, “I didn’t even know that!”
With the Eclipse film in the planning stages to be shot right after New Moon, Jackson Rathbone, who plays Jasper Hale in the Twilight series, may have to choose between his two current projects — Twilight or The Last Airbender, which is scheduled for a 02 July 2010 release, which implies that the shooting for both films may take place over the same period.
If Jackson Rathbone were to choose The Last Airbender, I would not be surprised.
The Last Airbender Synopsis I am a fan of the Nickelodeon three part animated series, which has gained a wide following, not only among children, but, also those of the adult demographic. It has even won an Emmy award.
In a nutshell, “The [Avatar The Legend of Aang The Last Airbender] series follows the adventures of the main protagonist Aang and his friends, who must save the world by defeating the Fire Lord and ending the destructive war with the Fire Nation.”
Who Is Sokka? Jackson Rathbone has gotten the plum part of Sokka, “a fifteen-year-old warrior of the South Pole’s Southern Water Tribe.” As Sokka, Jackson will be playing a character that must display growth as he travels the world with The Last Airbender to gain the skills to defeat the Fire Lord.
From a chauvinistic backward male, Sokka will gain knowledge and experience that will convert him to a sword and boomerang wielding Water Tribe warrior, with the genius for designing destructive weapons, the leadership to inspire men to go into war, the capacity for massive planning, the wit and humor to make his friends collapse with laughter, and the love to gain the hearts of a moon princess and a female Kyoshi warrior.
Although Jasper Hale is a very interesting character, a vampire has essentially been “set in stone,” with vast limitations for change and growth, unlike the character of Sokka.
Excited About The Last Airbender MTV reports that Jackson is excited about The Last Airbender, “For me, it’s a great chance to show my range a little bit more. It’s a chance to do something a little funnier. Something less serious than Jasper.
“It’s just an action-packed, epic film. I’m starting to do martial-arts training, which is going to be so much fun, and we’re doing a lot of interesting work with the green screen. It’s such a mythical world. We get to go to Asia, go film abroad. It’s just going to be such a blast.”
The Last Airbender Director and Scriptwriter The Last Airbender will have M. Night Shyamalan as director and scriptwriter for the three films comprising The Last Airbender. M. Night Shyamalan is best known for his groundbreaking supernatural thrillers such as The Sixth Sense, Signs, The Village and The Lady in the Water
Hopefully, the schedule of Jackson Rathbone will be able to accommodate the series of both Twilight and The Last Airbender, but, if something has to give, don’t be surprised if he chooses the M. Night Shyamalan films.
