Moviegoers who think that the Twilight saga will be dead and buried after the third installation, Eclipse, had better think again: Summit Entertainment may release not just one but two movies based on the fourth novel in the series.

The film company is considering turning Breaking Dawn into a two-part finale to the movie series, Variety reports.

Of course, there are complications to such a move. First off, screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, who wrote the first three movies’ scripts, hasn’t begun writing. Second, director Chris Weitz, who filmed New Moon, has said he wants to quit the movie business after finishing a pet project, The Gardener.

But perhaps most critical is getting actors Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and the rest to come back on board – and paying them suitably staggering salaries.

On the other hand, if Harry Potter can pull it off, why not the Cullens?
