Busting Michael Mann “Breaking Dawn” Rumors
Since the dawn of time, humans have looked toward the heavens and pondered who would direct Breaking Dawn, the fourth installment of The Twilight Saga.
A new name entered the discussion yesterday, when Michael Mann reportedly expressed interest in the project.
“Having read the source material, there’s a place for digital cinema in these films that has not yet been utilized,” Mann is said to have commented. “I’ve been talking with David [Slade, director of June's Eclipse]… and he feels very close to the story.”
“We’re still in talks with Stephanie (sic) [Meyer], but finishing the Twilight saga right is certainly a goal of mine and David’s.”
Not surprisingly, the direct language Mann supposedly uses (and we’re trying to verify whether he gave these quotes) made many fans believe he’d already accepted the assignment.
However, Gossip Cop can confirm there is still no director for the film, Mann or otherwise.
Gossip Cop spoke with a rep for Summit Entertainment, and we were told that nothing has changed since earlier directorial speculation. There is no finalized script, no production schedule, and no one chosen (yet) to sit behind the camera.
