Melbourne,(ANI): Bill Condon, who will be directing the next movie in The Twilight Saga, has posted an open letter on Facebook in a bid to be accepted by diehard fans of the trilogy. Twilight"s notoriously obsessive fans were cautious after last week"s announcement that Condon, 54, was to take charge of the hugely popular movie series and he was keen to assure them that he was doing his best.

“I"m pretty busy bringing myself up to speed on what you already know by heart," News.com.au quoted him as writing. “I"ve read Breaking Dawn twice, rewatched Catherine"s and Chris"s movies 2-3 times each, have all four CDs playing in my car, and have Catherine"s notebook, Mark Cotta Vaz"s companion books, and even Volume 1 of the graphic novel here on my desk.

“I realize that this barely qualifies me for “newborn" status in the universe you"ve been living inside for a few years now, but a guy"s gotta start somewhere," he wrote. Condon"s movie will be the fourth to be released, and is based on the fourth book in the series, Breaking Dawn. But Condon"s net note did nothing to quell the controversy over whether the movie based on the final book in the series will be one movie or split into two.

Fanatical fans of the series known as Twihards, maintain the final book needs to become two movies to do it justice. In the Facebook post, which has had 3000 responses, he seems to refer to two movies. “I"ve been given a very warm welcome by Stephenie and Team Summit – who are super-focused, as you know, on getting these movies right," he stated.
