Director Bill Condon was at the Toronto International Film Festival last week for the world premiere of "The Fifth Estate," his drama about controversial WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. So naturally the Oscar winner received questions about his work on the two-part adaptation of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn."
While it seemed safe to say that the final nail had been hammered into that vampire franchise's coffin, fans of the Kristen Stewart-Robert Pattinson movies will be happy to know that Condon has a few more tricks up his sleeve -- apart from the soon-to-be-released "Twilight" series DVD box set.
"I do have a kind of version of those two movies cut into one movie that is not going to be [in the box set], but I hope one day might emerge," the director told Collider. "I think it would be an interesting experience for those who are really into it. ... [I]t's just one cut. There are obviously adjustments you have to make and rearranging some of the stuff. Just making it into one seamless thing, making it feel more like the original novel."
Condon added that he created the supercut "before we shut down the editing room."
Surely this epic director's cut would get butts in seats if released in theaters, just in time for the winter holidays. Summit, you've been holding out on us!
Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, another British leading man with a fervent fanbase,"The Fifth Estate" opens October 18.
