Start your engines, Twi-hards! The director for the fourth and (perhaps?) final installment of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn, has finally been announced!

Summit Entertainment has confirmed via a press release and Facebook that Bill Condon will be helming the project.

“I’m very excited to get the chance to bring the climax of this saga to life on-screen. As fans of the series know, this is a one-of-a-kind book — and we’re hoping to create an equally unique cinematic experience,” says Condon in the statement.
