LOS ANGELES — Twilight fans just received a double dose of good news.

Summit Entertainment has confirmed that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, the fourth novel in Stephanie Meyer's best-selling vampire series, will be released as two separate movies.

The first Breaking Dawn will be released on Nov. 18, 2011. The second film's release date has yet to be finalized, but it is expected to hit theaters the following year.

Oscar-winner Bill Condon will direct both films, with main stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner already onboard to return.

Up next is the third installment of the series, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which bows on June 30.
