While recent reports suggest that "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn" will be happening soon, the plan to make the film could face a trouble. E! Online has just reported that there has not been a decision whether it will be made into one movie or two. Therefore, Summit Entertainment has not picked any director.

Believing that double the work means double the money, Summit wants to split "Breaking Dawn" into two parts. Meanwhile, author of "Twilight Saga" novels Stephenie Meyer, who is said having a different agenda, reportedly does not give her consent to the studio's plan.

"Stephenie is calling the shots and she still can't decide whether or not [making two movies] is the right thing to do creatively," an insider told the site. "Meyer isn't in it for the fame. She hates doing press, and she doesn't want to be recognized for anything other than her work, so what's her incentive to drag [the book] out?"

The insider additionally claimed everything is decided under Meyer's permission so the studio has been trying to assure her about two "Breaking Dawn" movies. "They keep trying to persuade her it's the right thing to do artistically. They're constantly waiting for her input," the insider further said.

In another "Breaking Dawn" news, producer Wyck Godfrey has revealed that Summit eyes to shoot the movie in Vancouver this fall. The filmmaker also suggested that "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse" director Chris Weitz will not return to the next installment of "Twilight" film series. "I think everyone would be happy and excited if he came back, but I don't think it's going to happen," he told Los Angeles Times.

"The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn" will continue the love story between mortal beauty Bella Swan and hundred-year-old vampire Edward Cullen. Wyck Godfrey has confirmed that three lead actors Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are signed for the upcoming film, while Melissa Rosenberg is currently working on the script.

I really think that breaking dawn should be split into two films I mean if u think about it the book has way much details and emotions to just show in one movie. also to coment I think tim burton would be the best choice as a directer on the film.

The problem with 5 movies instead of 4 movies is that many of the actors have contracts for only 4. So therefore the Twilight word for today is r-e-n-e-g-o-t-i-a-t-i-o-n. Summit Entertainment, the actors, and Stephenie Meyers all smell blood knowing how much more money a fifth movie will suck in. A Billion bucks? More... considering that there is even a Twilight Barbie doll... it seems everyone wants to take a bite out of this entertainment franchise. The studio bosses at summit may be greedy Vampires, but they won't pass up an opportunity to make an extra billion. Even Dracula says, "Count on it." You may see some replacement actors, which might be interesting... "How will the fans react?"... is the basic question the Studio "bean counters" will be asking. Team Edward and Team Jacob might just get a whole lot more complicated. A different Edward, Jacob, or Bella? Doubtful. Most likely summit will simply guarantee the actors additional paydays in future films. That is usually what a Movie Studio does in a situation like this. So expect to see the actors in some low budget exploitation movies. Then again, you never know when a low budget exploitation film makes more Billions of dollars than can be counted. Might be a good idea to find a stay at home mommy to write the story first. It seems be the new way for Independent studios to become exceedingly wealthy.

From Stephenies website: January 12, 2010 Just a quick note on the subject of the Breaking Dawn film: there is no drama over whether the book should be one movie or two. My personal feeling is that it would be very difficult to cram the whole story into one movie (as I've said in many interviews previous to this), but if a great way of doing that surfaces, I'm all for it. Two or one, whichever way fits the story best is fine by me, and everyone I've spoken with at Summit seems to feel the same way. We're all excited to move forward on this, and we are slowly and surely getting there. I know people are anxious for news, and so sometimes gossip gets fabricated to stir things up, but there's no basis to this particular story. Steph

Im all for not having to wait for a second Breaking Dawn, but if you look at it...If you want to see ALL or even MOSt of the action and scenes from the book there simply is not enough time in a two or two and a half hour time period

Either make a really long film or make two just dont skip all the scenes out, they need to all be in it in detail! Twilight fans will defenatly stay in the cinemas for as long as it takes just dont put too long of a gap between the two if thats what you decide :)

Seriously, just make it just one movie. Make it as long as Titanic, 3 hours long. 30 minutes for Bella's first part of the book, an hour for Jacob's part and 90 minutes for the rest of Bella's story. There, a total of 180 minutes. Twifans will stay seated for that long in the theaters. Eh, just my opinion.
