While Summit Entertainment has made it clear they won't make official decisions for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn until screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg delivers her script outline, it apparently isn't stopping them from reaching out to high-profile directors to helm the fourth and final installment in the franchise.

Entertainment Weekly reports the studio has reached out to at least three directors, including Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation), Gus Van Sant (Milk) and Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) to gauge their interest in possibly helming the final story, which will likely be split into two films. No decisions are expected to be made until Rosenberg's plot outline is turned in next week.

You can check out the recently released first trailer for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse here. David Slade (30 Days of Night) took over the directorial duties for the third installment which will hit theaters June 30, 2010.

These directors go for more Oscar type films, I'm surprised the Twilight peeps reaching out to them.  Bill Condon should steer clear from this and put all his focus into the Richard Pryor film with Marlon Wayans.

Just have Slade do the last one too. The tone is pretty dark for a lot of the story anyway.

I'd chime in (of course) but I haven't read it yet.

I'd still check in with Hardwicke though -- and Chris Weitz can go screw himself

Marlon Wayans?  If Richard Pryor were alive he'd probably set himself on fire, AGAIN, at the mere suggestion of that bafoon.

I was commenting in the AOL movie chatroom about my pick for director. I say it should be M. Night Shyamalan. :)
