Pattinson wants Van Sant to direct next Twilight sequel
Actor Robert Pattinson is campaigning for Gus Van Sant to take charge of the fourth Twilight movie after learning the film will be shot in the director's hometown.
The first big screen installment of the vampire series was filmed in the city of Portland, Oregon, but the cast travelled to Vancouver, Canada earlier this year (09) to film the following two sequels, New Moon and Eclipse.
Now Pattinson has revealed they will be crossing back over the U.S. border for Breaking Dawn - and he's hoping Oscar nominee Van Sant, who was originally born in Kentucky, will jump on board the franchise as it's taking place in the city he's lived and worked in for several years.
Pattinson tells MTV.com, "I probably shouldn't say this, but I've heard that we're going to shoot it in Portland.
"I think Gus Van Sant would be great to do it. He shoots everything in Portland. He's good at making it look beautiful.
"(Breaking Dawn)'s all about teenage love and obsessions. I think Gus Van Sant would be great."
Filmmaker Catherine Hardwicke directed 2008's Twilight movie, while Chris Weitz took over camera duties for the upcoming New Moon, and David Slade helmed next year's (10) Eclipse.
