Would you be shocked! dismayed! sick to your stomach! if the Twilight crew broke out in song for their final films?

Summit Entertainment has picked their top choices to direct the final film in the series, Breaking Dawn. But will the new director completely transform the final movie into a musical?

Mike Fleming at Deadline.com reports that Bill Condon has emerged as the top choice to direct the final installment of the Twilight series, slated to debut in two parts. While Bill hasn’t signed on to the project just yet, he was among the names of directors approved by both Summit and the Twilight author, Stephanie Meyer.

Bill Condon recently directed Dreamgirls, a movie based on the Broadway musical about a trio of black soul singers trying to break into pop in the 1960s. And he’s won an Oscar — for 1999’s Gods and Monsters (which isn’t a musical, btw.)

Condon worked beautifully with singer-actor Beyonce Knowles and Jennifer Hudson, but working with characters like Edward Cullen and Bella Swan is, we’d say, entirely different. — Allison McNamara

This is one of the most ignorant articles I have ever read. He made plenty of films before Dreamgirls that weren’t musicals, so what makes you think this will a musical?

New Moon didn’t turn into a father and son drama even though it was directed by the man behind About A Boy. The director of Eclipse did 30 Days Of Night and I don’t see you calling that a horror film.

Oh, and in regards to not being able to work with characters like Edward and Bella; they’re not exactly the most complicated characters in literary history. Don’t insult the guy’s intelligence. Clearly, you should be examining your own.
