With rumors surfacing that Bill Condon is the front runner to direct Breaking Dawn, MTV has compiled their own list of the pros and cons of this scenario. Here are just one of each, but go to MTV to read their entire list.
Tales From The Dark Side
Condon has flirted with a variety of different genres, and the combination could definitely serve him well as the director of “Breaking Dawn.” “Sister, Sister” and “Candyman,” his earliest features, are firmly rooted in the horror/thriller vein. Neither is particularly memorable, but we at least know he has an understanding of how to embrace the darkness.
It’s All In The Writing
Condon’s two Academy Award honors — the nomination for “Chicago” and the win for “Gods and Monsters” — recognized his writing. Melissa Rosenberg has been the series writer up to this point, and there’s no reason to think she won’t write “Breaking Dawn” as well. As director, Condon will certainly have some amount of flexibility with the script. But it still won’t be his and his alone.
