No more question about whether "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn" will be made into one or two movies. On Thursday, June 10, Summit Entertainment has issued an official announcement to confirm that the final chapter of "Twilight" film series will be split into two parts.

The first part of the two is slated to hit U.S. theaters on November 18, 2011 while the release date for the second one has not been determined yet. Shooting is expected to begin this fall and Melissa Rosenberg is currently writing the script.

"Bill Condon will direct both films starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner along with Billy Burke as Charlie Swan as well as returning members of the Cullen Family including Peter Facinelli as Carlisle, Elizabeth Reaser as Esme, Jackson Rathbone as Jasper, Nikki Reed as Rosalie, Ashley Greene as Alice and Kellan Lutz as Emmett," the statement reads.

The story will follow Bella Swan after she has made a decision between her intense passion for Edward Cullen and her profound connection to Jacob Black. Additionally, "Breaking Dawn" is said to illuminate "the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions."

Can Bill Condon stick to the book? Movies 1 and 3 poorly written. Out of sequence, confusing dialogue that is not in the book. For instance, at the end of book three Bella clearly states she knows who she cannot live without. Instead she says she belongs in the world of the immortals and thus Edward's worst fear is realized! It would be nice if the director and writer can read the books first and create what is written. Stop worrying about the length the fans just want to see it as written!!

Yes, Aia, they were the first one to do that. I honestly hate this decision. The reason WB can do it with 'The Deathly Hallows' is because that book has so much things going on that contribute to the overall plot of the STORY that its would mess up the movie badly if they haven't split it into two movies. But with 'Breaking Dawn', that story has a lot of pointless parts and doesn't even have enough things in it to warrant a two-part finale. All they have to do is do everything from the book until the point where Bella wakes up as a vampire. The rest of the story sucks, its just like "oh something is gonna happen...oh wait nevermind". All they do is talk, and theres no climactic part. Unlike in Deathly Hallows where both parts can have that climactic feel(with the second one being the Battle of Hogwarts.) So yeah, its a really bad idea since not even most of the book fans would watch part 2.
