Bill Condon: Front Runner to Direct Breaking Dawn?

Bill-CondonsoloAccording to Mike Flemming at Deadline Hollywood:

EXCLUSIVE: Bill Condon has emerged as the number one choice to direct the final two installments of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, I’m told. Summit Entertainment hasn’t signed him, but I’m told that after several strong meetings, they are negotiating. Condon was among a list of A-list directors approved by Summit and Twilight author Stephenie Meyer.”

Mike is a colleague of  Nikki Finke, who was the person who previously broke the story that Sofia Coppola and Gus Van Sant along with Condon were in the running. Nikki tends to get things right, but she isn’t fool proof. Notably she got the Eclipse director wrong initially stating that Juan Antonio Bayora would get the gig.

Stephenie Meyer Makes Elle’s Power List

Every year Elle magazine comes up with a Women in Hollywood Power list and they publish the list in their November issue. This year they asked noted Hollywood insider Nikki Finke to create the list for them. This is what Nikki had to say about getting the gig:

Nikki also went on to say that “The trick in Hollywood is not just getting power but keeping it…”

Well, given that Stephenie Meyer is having all of her books turned into movies and is collaboratively working with all the directors on those movies, we’d say she’s met Nikki Finke’s definition. Congratulations, Stephenie!
