Collider got some juicy Twilight news from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon while at the Toronto International Film festival. Condon was at the festival to promote the movie The Fifth Estate starring Daniel Brühl and Benedict Cumberbatch, but when asked about the upcoming “Twilight Forever” box set coming out this fall, he revealed he did cut together a four hour supercut of both parts of Breaking Dawn. This super-cut won’t be included in the special box set, but we’re hoping it may get a DVD release (and possibly a theatrical release) in the future.
Bill Condon: I do have a kind of version of those two movies cut into one movie that is not going to be there [on “Twilight Forever” box set], but I hope one day might emerge. I think it would be an interesting experience for those who are really into it.
When you say you have a new version, are there a lot of things different, or is it just one cut?
Condon: No, it’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.
Did you do that while editing [The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1]?
Condon: Yeah, I did it before we shut down the editing room.
This is interesting, I’m surprised that Summit hasn’t come around and said, “Let’s release that as a double feature in select theaters.”
Condon: Right, yeah. It’d be interesting. Maybe that’ll happen.
