With the third installment of the popular vampire film series, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, set to hit theaters on June 30, it seems that the fourth installment of the series could get started sooner than originally thought. The Los Angeles Times recently spoke with producer Wyck Godfrey, who has produced all of the films in the series, and he revealed that production on the fourth film, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn could start as early as this fall. Here's an excerpt from the article.
Wyck Godfrey, the producer of all the films in the The Twilight Saga, admits that the creative team still doesn't know how they'll handle the character in the Breaking Dawn movie, but said that the plan is absolutely for the production to go forward -- as either one or two installments -- with an eye toward beginning to shoot in Vancouver this fall. All three stars are signed forBreaking Dawn, he said, meaning that Stewart and Pattinson will be dealing with the joys and woes of interspecies parenting and newly minted heartthrob Taylor Lautner will return as often-shirtless shape-shifter Jacob Black.
At the moment, screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, who's penned all the Twilight movies, is working on the "Breaking Dawn" script(s). "It's a work in process," Godfrey said in an interview Friday. "The issue [of whether there will be one or two movies] is not going to be resolved until we get the full treatment and see whether it's organic. If it's not organic, I don't think it will be done, and if it is, it will be. It really has to do with how much level of detail from the books there is, with all of these new vampires that appear in Breaking Dawn the whole section about Jacob... It's a very long single movie if it does become a single movie."
