MTV Wants to Know: Who Would You Pick As a Director For Breaking Dawn

A new name entered the potential directors pool for “Breaking Dawn” yesterday: Stephen Daldry. He previously directed only three films — “The Reader,” “The Hours” and “Billy Elliott” — but he received Academy Award nominations for all three of them. Daldry joins a group of three previously named talents who Summit is considering to helm the final installment in the “Twilight” series.

Last week, the news emerged that the studio had Gus Van Sant, Sofia Coppola and Bill Condon on their short list of potential helmers. These are four serious names; Summit clearly wants to bring out the biggest guns they can in capping off the high school romance-meets-vampires saga. They also want to serve the fans, since you’re the ones who made this series such a big deal. And we’re here to help. Tell us which of the four directors we know to be in the running you’d most like to see get the gig. I can’t promise you that Summit will listen, but I can’t promise they won’t either. Let’s just quickly recap the potential directors one more time before we get to the poll.

Sofia Coppola: The “Lost in Translation” and “Marie Antoinette” director knows her way around nuanced female roles, and Kristen Stewart’s Bella is definitely that. She also knows how to make challenging relationships compelling for film audiences; “Breaking Dawn” also has a lot of that.

Gus Van Sant: Van Sant is admittedly an odd choice. He’s had mainstream success with the likes of “Good Will Hunting” and “Finding Forrester,” but he’s known best for his indie/arthouse work. “Twilight” is many things, and it does indeed have its roots as an indie, but “arthouse” is not a direction I can see Summit wanting it to go in for the final chapter (or chapters, if it is broken into two movies). That said, star Robert Pattinson is keen on Van Sant being the guy, and the directorhas proven himself capable of blockbuster success.

Bill Condon: The random nature of Bill Condon’s resume is exactly what makes him a good fit for “Breaking Dawn.” From the “Candyman” sequel to “Kinsey” to “Dreamgirls,” you never know what he’s going to do next. He’s directed a supernatural, hook-wielding psycho-killer, a sex-crazed scientist and an up-and-coming soul singer… a teenage romance involving vampires, werewolves and a violent, bloody birth feels like the culmination of everything he’s ever done!

So now you know the players. Which one do you think would be best?

Bobby Long Speaks About Robert Pattinson in an Interview With LimeLife

The singer/songwriter talks sudden stardom, American girls and the dangers of being friends with Robert Pattinson.

Did you think Robert Pattinson was the only cute Brit who shies away from interviews? Last week in New York we caught up with singer/songwriter Bobby Long, a Twilight soundtrack crooner, longtime friend of Robert Pattinson and member of the ever-higher-profile „Brit Pack“ that also includes actors/musicians/longtime Pattinson mates Tom Sturridge, Sam Bradley and Marcus Foster. Bobby Long is preparing to release his first studio album this summer, and if it’s anything like he says it is, then you want to start downloading Bobby Long now.

Bobby Long’s “Let Me Sign“ for Twilight and “Who Have You Been Loving?“ from his first album Dirty Pond Songs have put him on the map in mainstream music and in front of, yep, gaggles of female audiences who are screaming to ride the British boy bandwagon. In the basement of New York’s famed Mercury Lounge, we thought Bobby Long couldn’t get any more candid…until he climbed onstage.

LimeLife: Bobby, most of us grew aware of you after you penned “Let Me Sign“ for the Twilight soundtrack a couple years ago. What have you been up to since then?
Bobby Long: I just got finished recording my first album and I’m really happy with it, so I’m looking forward to getting it out there. I mean, I don’t know how big it’s going to be but I’m really proud of it. I think people are going to respect it.

LimeLife: What’s the name of the album?
Bobby Long: I don’t have a name yet. I’ve gotten finished mixing it, so I’m thinking of names at the moment. It’ll be coming out in summer.

LimeLife: That seems like good timing, considering your affiliation with the Twilight series and the fact that Eclipse releases in June. People seem to know you best from Twilight
Bobby Long: Yeah, yeah.

LimeLife: So was that recognition some of the strategy behind the scheduling of the album’s release?
Bobby Long: No, no, not at all actually. I kind of got that opportunity to have that song in the film and since then I’ve been kind of steering myself away from it.

LimeLife: Have you really?
Bobby Long: Yeah. I’ve been on tour [for the last few months] and I haven’t really done any kind of Twilight events. I’ve used the opportunity to kind of make my own opportunities out of it. I don’t really know with going on with [Twilight]. The only thing I know is that I had a song in it. That’s all I know.

LimeLife: Our audience at LimeLife is a lot of female adults.
Bobby Long: So they all love that film.

LimeLife: (laughter) Many of them, yes. And ever since we heard “Let Me Sign“ in it, your name just continues to stay in the news. I know you’re good friends with Robert Pattinson, and two weeks ago he was jokingly shouting your name for Marcus Foster to play some Bobby Long.
Bobby Long: The funniest thing about that right, is just that… it’s just a few mates joking around. All that was is just Rob enjoying himself at his mate’s show, right. Like, before my show, a mutual friend will shout out, “Play a Marcus Foster song“ or “Play a Sam Bradley song“ or something…like, “Play a song by Cher.“

(More laughter erupts around the Mercury Lounge basement.)

Bobby Long: It’s just winding each other up. It’s just a friendly thing. And then Rob’s getting criticized for it.

LimeLife: I don’t think it was criticism. It was just a fun story when we reported on it.
Bobby Long: But the comments on it! He hasn’t been criticized by the media, but criticized by people. I read [one comment], it said, “He’s a bastard.“ It’s just like, “Oh, f*ck off.” That kind of stuff is funny. I just laugh. It’s something to show your nan, that’s all it is, then you get back to your day job. It’s just funny that someone reports that and sends it off, that someone spent 15 minutes of their life reporting it.

LimeLife: Oh, for sure…I did! So are people recognizing you yet?
Bobby Long: Um, I mean, yeah. Me and my girlfriend were in Starbucks in London and we were kind of arguing (laughs). And I got this message from somebody, “I saw you in Starbucks but I didn’t want to interrupt.“ That was weird. And I occasionally get stuff like that, people walking up or bumping into me and stuff. I don’t know how I’d deal with it. As long as people come to my shows, then it’s great. I’m fairly approachable, but it does frighten me a bit. But I don’t think it’s ever gonna get like that. If it does I’ll move to Mexico or something.

LimeLife: Oh right, like that would help! Can you attribute your degree of success up to this point to any particular entity or person or party?
Bobby Long: I mean, at the end of the day everyone needs a break, and my break stemmed from that film [Twilight]. At the moment I owe a lot to that film. I’ll always owe a lot to that film because it gave me my platform, but since then, everyone behind me who helps out has been amazing: my manager, my press lady, agents…everyone needs credit for just kind of continuing to push things forward. It’s one thing to be faced with an opportunity, but you have to keep it going; that’s the most important thing. Opportunities arise all the time, but the real thing is to try and develop it. To be able to sit here a year later [after the first album] and things are still cascading-without even a release [for the second albumb] is a really amazing thing. I managed to finance my own album from touring so much. We worked really hard. I was on tour for seven months straight. It was the most amazing experience of my life, but when I got home and had a week off, I didn’t quite realize how tired I was.

LimeLife: It’s going to turn into pandemonium soon — based on the audience that’s waiting to see you tonight, the fans are going crazy. They’re lined up around the corner, and they’re mostly female. So which do you prefer, British girls or American girls?
Bobby Long: Person to person, it’s different. I can’t really say…there’s great people on both sides.
