As expected, Summit Entertainment confirmed last night that it will release Breaking Dawn, the final installment of The Twilight Saga, in two parts. Production will start this fall with the first movie set to release Nov. 18, 2011; no date was announced for the second film. Bill Condon will direct both movies, and Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart, Billy Burke, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Jackson Rathbone, Nikki Reed, Ashley Greene, and Kellan Lutz will all reprise their roles. Breaking Dawn is a movie adaptation of the fourth book in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. The third movie, Eclipse, releases June 30.
