There’s only one more Twilight movie and the arrival of Breaking Dawn Part 2 on November 16 must have fans excited and slightly sad at the same time. Director Bill Condon knows this and is doing his best to make the final chapter in Stephenie Meyer’s series the best. The helmer wrote an open letter to the Twilight nation on Facebook giving an update and admitting that there are reshoots on the agenda.
Condon stressed that the additional shots were a technical necessity and that the additional work on the film does not mean that the film’s release date will be pushed back. Here, in its full entirety is the director’s letter to fans:
Greetings from Los Angeles, where we’re hard at work on Breaking Dawn Part 2. It’s truly crazy to think that it’s been a year since we wrapped production in Vancouver, since for those of us in the editing room the work has never stopped.
A film is a lot like a puzzle, with each piece -- each shot, no matter how brief -- needing to fit exactly with the ones around it. Our Part Two puzzle is finally coming into full view, and in a few weeks we’ll be heading back north to pick up some additional shots -- the last tiny missing pieces. We’re not shooting any new scenes or dialogue, just some technical work with some of our cast and stunt actors.
I am really looking forward to being back on set with some of the friends I’ve made on my Twilight journey, like the great Guillermo Navarro, our cinematographer, and his crew. And yes, Rob and Kristen will be there too, to pop in those gold contacts one last time…
I’m excited to report that before too long we’ll have another trailer for you to decode. And wait until you see the first posters -- they’re unlike any Twilight images you’ve seen before. And then November 16th will be upon us and the final film will be yours!
Until then, have a very happy spring, and I’ll check back in with you soon.
