The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Will Be Adapted into Two Films

twilightminicover.jpgDeadline Hollywood reports that the last book of the bestselling Twilight saga will be adapted into two films with “‘high end’ Helmer/s.”

Here’s more from the post: “Filming on the back-to-back movies would begin in mid-October, and Summit Entertainment is looking at “high end” directors. Breaking Dawn is the longest in Stephenie Meyer’s 4-book series lengthwise and it’s the most graphic — presenting birth, attempted murder, death, and of course vampire bites.”

This will be welcome news for Meyer’s publisher, as the extra film should boost sales. Yesterday, Publishers Weekly noted that fourth quarter sales had dropped 20 percent at Hachette Book Group USA as Twilight‘s blockbuster performance settled.
