'Breaking Dawn' adaptation confirmedFile this one under "Le Duh." Robert Pattinson may be spending most of his time at Cannes chilling out along the French Riviera, but he's also talking to a few reporters. And oh, the things he's saying. In what should come as a surprise to absolutely no one, Pattinson confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that he is signed on for the silver screen adaptation of "Breaking Dawn," the fourth book in Stephanie Meyer's "Twilight" series.

I somehow doubt that any of you are surprised by this news. Given the fact that the third book's adaptation is confirmed, as well as the not-inconsequential worldwide box office figures -- approaching $400 million -- it was really just a matter of time this last "Twilight" confirmation surfaced.

Do I even need to ask how you all feel about this news?

'Twilight'If you follow Stephenie Meyer's official website, you might have already heard this news, but we're bringing it to you anyway. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chris Weitz has cast the Wolf Pack for "New Moon", all of whom will make their big screen debut in the "Twilight" sequel.

Joining the humans of Forks, Washington (and fellow werewolf Taylor Lautner) in their fight against the vampires will be: Chaske Spencer, Bronson Pelletier, Alex Meraz, Kiowa Gordon and Tyson Houseman. All the actors are of Native American descent, with Sioux, Purepecha and Hualapai being the tribes represented among the new cast members. That's a good thing for fans of the series and the Native American community, and it's been one of the major perks of the "Twilight" name. The series is a big enough draw that Summit can focus on casting the characters appropriately rather than landing big star power. Read More...

'Twilight'Despite what you may have heard all over the Internet the past few days, Summit has not hired a director for "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse," and all the announcements that Juan Antonio Bayona officially had the job were incorrect. The LA Times caught up with Summit's production president Erik Feig, who quickly shot down all reports of Bayona's hiring. "The 'Eclipse' directing job hasn’t been offered to Juan Antonio or anyone else. We’ve met with three or four talented filmmakers and we’ll be meeting with three or four more other candidates before we make any decision. No one has been offered the job."

This much is true: Summit did meet with Bayona this week, as did Stephanie Meyer. But Bayona isn't sure he wants to join the "Twilight" universe, because its story and characters are already established, and he likes to do his own thing. But he is a fan of the series, so don't be too hard on him for his reluctance to join a set series! Read More...

'Twilight'The "Twilight" franchise has officially replaced Batman for crazy rumors and speculation, causing many a Twilight fan to pull their hair out. Lately, the focus has been behind the camera as everyone seems to be in the running to direct the third installment, "Eclipse."

Drew Barrymore's possible involvement caused the most stir, with many doubting that she had the directing chops needed. Barrymore has only one film under her belt, the soon-to-be-released "Whip It!", but many actors successfully transition to directing. So why not? Read More...
