As we told ya ages ago, Bill Condon, who was just announced as the official director of the Twilight franchise's final installment, Breaking Dawn, really is perfect for the job. Certain sources at Summit—who get how exactly how sexually ambiguous this whole vamp show can be—agree:
"[Condon] gets it, he does the repressed thing very well."
Jeez, is this good news or bad news?
We say totally good!
"[Condon] really is good at getting in there with the sexual stuff you don't talk about, he's shown that in Gods and Monsters," Deep Twi assessed, regarding Condon's film with Brendan Fraser and Ian McKellen. Monsters essentially was about a retired gay director (McKellen) who wanted his gardener (Fraser), who didn't seem to know exactly what the hell he wanted. The ending wasn't entirely happy.
And given the progressive romantic lives (finally!) Bella and Edward have in Stephenie Meyer's fourth Twilight book, Breaking Dawn, maybe it's best to have a guy who knows how tease the PG stuff while still keeping everything tuned to the overwhelming teenage audience? Probably. Just think we all coulda used a guy who gets sex—in any kind of filmic capacity—on Twilight a whole lot sooner.
Also, our Summit insider informs us the reason they're still waiting to decide whether Breaking will be made into one or two (or three?) films is to get Condon's input.
"It only makes sense," Deep Twi added, "if we want this guy to stay with us for a while to get his input on everything."
Uh, for a while?
Yep, you heard right.
After all, vampires do live forever, do they not?
