Pattinson confirmed for breaking dawn!

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that The Twilight Saga: New Moon and Remember Me star Robert Pattinson has confirmed, to them, his plans to work on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.

Sunday, we discussed the opinions of Marc Malkin on the matter, and celebrant Twilight saga fans said a unified "yes" to whether Pattinson should be involved with the project. Last week, too, we discussed whether there was any significance to the unofficial but relevant changes on Breaking Dawn's IMDb status, and many fans found this information to be quite encouraging. A couple of weeks before that, we noted that the German television show which promises to place its contest winner in a Twilight series film hosted 12 women who might fit the bill for a spot on Breaking Dawn rather than The Twilight Saga: New Moon or The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. The week before, we had received word from a source at that Breaking Dawn was a definite "go" for production, though still had no official word from Summit Entertainment on the matter. And, finally, with one of the largest discussions we've had to-date, we went through the reasons why, despite the potential difficulties in making the film, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn should be done.

Now, we have another brick in the wall of Breaking Dawn unofficial (but quite hopeful) news.

CANNES -- Robert Pattinson, who shot to stardom in Twilight and is now filming the second and third movies in the franchise, confirmed Tuesday in Cannes that there will be a fourth installment of the vampire franchise based on the book Breaking Dawn.

Pattinson told The Hollywood Reporter that he is committed to starring in the final outing to date but doesn't know when backers Summit Entertainment will begin production because of the actor's jam-packed shooting schedule.

Fans have been hoping for a movie version of the fourth novel from Stephenie Meyer's best-sellers, so Pattinson's commitment is the biggest fillip yet. The fourth book (caution -- spoiler alert) centers on Bella and Edward's marriage and her subsequent pregnancy.

Dropping in on the Croisette on the way to shooting the final four days of New Moon in Italy on Friday, Pattinson said he is heading back to Vancouver in October to finish up Twilight: Eclipse, the third installment. In between, the British actor, who turned 23 last week, plans to star in Remember Me, which Summit also is producing.

The script adaptation for New Moon beefs up his character's role considerably -- in the book, Edward is a "a voice in Bella's head," he said.

Said Pattinson, laughing: "You're playing a figment in Bella's imagination so I was trying to do it in a 2-D way. I hope it doesn't translate onscreen as being boring." The hardworking actor is taking a few days off after completing New Moon before the start of the Remember Me shoot. He plans three days off after an eight-week planned shoot for Remember Me before finishing Eclipse before October.

Pattinson said Remember Me is very difficult to describe but said it is very much about him and, after reading the script last summer, felt a connection with it. The main protagonist is a 23-year-old man who spends six weeks after meeting someone working out if he is in love or not.
