Confirmed! 'Breaking Dawn' to Be Split into Two Films

Fans will get another dose of vampires when the Twilight Saga returns for a fifth movie!

It's official, Twihards! The final installment in the Twilight series, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, will be split into two movies, Summit Entertainment announced Thursday.

The studio Twittered the big announcement and confirmed in a press release that the first part of the fourth story will hit theaters on Nov. 18, 2011, and will be directed by Bill Condon. Author Stephenie Meyer is producing both chapters, while Melissa Rosenberg, Wyck Godfrey and Karen Rosenfelt are writing the scripts. Production on both films is set to take place simultaneously, but the release date for the second part of Breaking Dawn has not yet been announced.

The film's execs were waiting to announce the news until all salary negotiations were taken care of, and now that Cullen kids Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz are officially signed on to join all of our other Twilight obsessions (like Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, and Peter Facinelli), we can sink our teeth into the thought of some extra vampire love!

Meanwhile, the third film in the Twilight series, Eclipse, hits theaters on June 30.
