    Source: Breaking Dawn Screenwriter Set—But Will It Be Two Movies?

    Twilight screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg will definitely be finishing what she started when it comes to adapting the fourth and final book of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn. Deep Twi tells us that, although it won't officially be confirmed for a while, Melissa is tapped to finish out the films.

    Marc Malkin chatted with Melissa last week, and while she was playing very coy about BD plans (as well as Robsten), using the whole "everything is still up in the air" line, our well-placed source dishes that it's a done deal.

    Like we assured all Twi-fans last month, the entire crew—Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, etc.—will also be back to grace the big screen for the fourth time, too.

    So any director updates? And how exactly will the final movie be made?

    "There are no formal plans yet," Deep Twi tells us.

    Uh, well, want to know why that is? We've heard a bit of incredibly juicy info... 

    Execs over at Summit are going back to the idea of splitting BD into two films.

    Remember, last time we checked in with Deep Twi it was looking like Dawn would only be one movie, but recently everyone internally has been referring to it as "the Breaking Dawn films." That's right, you didn't imagine the plural ending there.

    Still, nothing has been decided yet. Most likely what's happening is Rob 'n' crew agreed to a fourth…not fifth. Once the cast determines if they are up for five, then Melissa can plan accordingly about how to pen out this fourth flick.

    We're totally up in the air about what to think here. We kind of wanted to release the cast into the acting wild. No need to drag out this Twilight stuff, especially since they are doing it so quickly, 'cause things get old real fast in Hollywood.

    But after hearing that Rosenberg is definitely doing the fourth film we are all about a fifth...but only if someone else writes that one.

    The final book in the Twilight series is definitely the craziest—it's a departure from the previous three, for sure. Hell, Robsten finally do it, ya know? We're not sure if Melissa is up for this edgy script-writing. Breaking Dawn needs someone like Diablo Cody to stir things up, and while we're at it, why not have Taylor Lautner direct the fifth one! After all, that is what he wants to do.

    Twi-fans, we know you're not the best with change, but come on. Don't you think we need someone like Cody to bring the badass out of Robsten?
