Bill Condon uses Twilight's official Facebook page to update Twilight fans on Breaking Dawn

Hello fans!

Has it really been five months (and a day) since my last dispatch? In my defense, they've been five months spent immersed in the world of TWILIGHT - something I'm sure you can all
appreciate. We're in the thick of pre-production now, juggling
everything from casting to storyboarding to location scouting, getting
it all ready to go, but I do want to take a moment to announce to you
exclusively a few of the amazing production team members who are hard
at work alongside me, bringing these movies to life. I hope you'll be
as excited about them as I am:

Guillermo Navarro, who won an Academy Award for the beautiful PAN'S LABYRINTH, is our cinematographer. Guillermo and I have been painstakingly planning each
shot, with a team of very talented storyboard artists.

Michael Wilkinson, our costume designer, is bringing his brilliant vision to the styles of all your favorite characters. Michael's created
fantastic looks for 300, WATCHMEN, and the upcoming TRON: LEGACY - just
wait 'til you see his take on the vampire witnesses who come to Forks
from around the globe.

Jean Black, our makeup designer, has worked extensively with the Coen Brothers and David Fincher, most recently making exquisite, award-winning contributions to THE CURIOUS
CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON. I'm honored to be working with her.

Richard Sherman, with whom I made GODS AND MONSTERS and KINSEY, is on-board as our production designer. Richard's one of my oldest collaborators and
a terrific designer, and you may be interested to know that he also
happens to be a lifelong vampire aficionado.

Our Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor John Bruno has been responsible for some of the most memorable special effects ever, with his
groundbreaking work on display in everything from POLTERGEIST to
AVATAR. He and his team are working intensely to develop solutions to
the host of special effects challenges that Stephenie created for us in
BREAKING DAWN, including that remarkable kid...

Wonderful, imaginative people all and very exciting, intense times for us. Even with the months of work we've already put in, we're barely underway on
the journey, and I do hope to get back to you much sooner next time
with more news. Until then, thanks for your warm reception and
continued support!

Very best regards,

As I commented somewhere else, I have a feeling that Bill Condon, Stephenie Meyer and Summit are not having any trouble getting ppl to sign on for these last 2 movies. I'm pretty sure there are lots of lots of talented ppl in all areas of filmdom who wouldn't mind getting in on this "cash cow" especially with Bill Condon - he seems very well "connected" in the "biz".

Thanks for the update Bill! I'm really excited to know who will be helping to create Breaking Dawn from the book to the movie. It seems that all the right people are involved in this! Can't wait to see what you guys do!

The fact that they have change the makeup artist and costume designer tells me Summit is finally listening to the fans. I hope they do a good job with Bellas wedding gown and the wedding. It should be like a fairytale. I think they are on the right track. OMG i cant believe we are only a month away from the filming of BREAKING DAWN!

Thank you Alison; please post again when we get another update. I am having a hard time waiting for BD to finally be done!

@Gloria Evans - I agree, I think that they have maybe been visiting some sites, like TwiFans and reading our comments. Fans on all the sites I visit have made pretty much the same observations and comments, especially regarding how Eclipse was ruined in so many ways, costume, hair (wigs) makeup, poor story flow, etc. It seems like SM and BC and Summit get it, finally. I think SM was very unhappy with Eclipse, even though she hasn't come right out and said so. I'm far less concerned now that Melissa Rosenberg will be able to write the screenplay for the movie statement she wants to make with SM and BC guiding the Breaking Dawn production.
