Twilight: Breaking Dawn Movies To Be Year Apart

Twilight fans are in for a long wait to see their heroine Bella's fate on the big screen, as there will now be a whole year inbetween the Breaking Dawn movies.

Summit have announced that the first part of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn will be released on 18th November 2011, with the second part to hit cinemas on 16th November 2012.

This is in stark contrast to the rush job for the middle two films, with New Moon released November 2009, less than one year after Twilight, and Eclipse hurried onto screen on 9th July this year.

Dreamgirls director Bill Condon is working from regular scribe Melissa Rosenberg's script, the woman responsible for turning Stephenie Meyer's wildly successful novels into the equally popular films.

There's no word yet on where the producers will time the break in Meyer's final novel, bringing Kristen Stewart's Bella's wish to become immortal like her beloved vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson) to a head. After several books of drippiness, Breaking Dawn goes Cronenberg-style insane. Hopefully this year break will allow the fanbase to age enough so it can be filmed in all its glory.
