It's a mystery. When is the fourth "Twilight" installment going to go into production? We all know about the third one, "Eclipse," but not a word about "Breaking Dawn."
(For all "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" news, click here)
Well, it's not a mystery no more, at least for now.
Our friends at Collider spoke to Robert Pattinson about "Breaking Dawn" and he said:
"I think the tentative time for “Breaking Dawn” is fall next year. They may well change that.”
Change as in, the last film may take the "Harry Potter" route and get divided into two films? Then, production will definitely change!

I'm getting really excited about this supernatural project called "Black Swan." First, I respect Darren Aronofsky as a director. He made Mickey Rourke ("The Wrestler") cool again!
Second, the paranormal angle is intriguing. The film is set in the world of New York City ballet about a ballerina (Natalie Portman) who's competing with a rival dancer. But is the rival a ghost or is Portman's character just having a mental breakdown? Mila Kunis is set to star as Lilly, the mysterious rival dancer.
Now, Winona Ryder is joining the cast as a rival dancer. Barbara Hershey and Vincent Cassel complete the cast.
Fox Searchlight is very close into co-financing and distributing the film which was written by Mark Heyman based on an original screenplay by Andres Heinz.
Production is set to start in New York before the end of the year, and the budget is reported to be between $10 million - $12 million.

"Sgt. Rock" based on the DC Comics World War II hero is finally being adapted for the big screen by director Francis Lawrence and scriptwriter Chad St. John.
The caveat? It's now set in the future.
The Hollywood Reporter tells us that producer Joel Silver has been trying to get this film made for nearly 20 years. And now, it seems, the project is moving forward.
Sgt. Rock, a leader of his infantry unit, Easy Company, first appeared in a 1959 issue of "Our Army at War." Then in 1977, the comic was renamed "Sgt. Rock" and ran until 1988.
Warner Bros. is hoping that by setting the film into the future, the project will become marketable.

What's going on with Universal's "The Wolfman?" First, it was the problematic release date. First, the Benicio Del Toro-starrer was supposed to be released Feb. 13 of this year, then was moved to April 3, and then Nov. 6. Finally, the film is supposed to howl into theaters Feb. 12 of next year. (See "What? "The Wolfman" Moved Again? See What Else Universal is Changing")
Now, we're learning that composer Danny Elfman has exited the project! Cinemusic is reporting that, "There were rumblings deep in the Elfman fan community… And it looks like those rumblings are now mumblings — Danny Elfman has left The Wolf Man, apparently due to scheduling conflicts. But if you believe rumors, it’s due to problems with the film."
I'm tired of this film already and it's not even out yet!
