Summit circles final ‘Twilight’ pic

Condon in talks to direct 'Breaking Dawn'

Summit Entertainment is closing in on helmer Bill Condon to close out the “Twilight” saga.

Condon is in negotiations to direct “Breaking Dawn” — the final tome in author Stephenie Meyer’s four-book vampire series. The deal is expected to close quickly, with no major sticking points between the two sides.

“Breaking Dawn,” which marks the last chapter in the love story of bloodsucker Edward and mortal Bella, will likely be broken into two films — meaning Condon would be the sole director to land two “Twilight” gigs. Catherine Hardwicke helmed the first pic, while Chris Weitz directed the second, “New Moon.” David Slade was behind the camera for the third, the upcoming “Eclipse.” Though Summit has been fickle with its directors, the company has stuck with scribe Melissa Rosenberg to adapt each installment.

Condon most recently helmed the musical “Dreamgirls.”
