The movie franchise having grossed over $2 billion with a fifth installment still on the way on November 16th, Lionsgate (which owns “Twilight” studio Summit Entertainment) is reportedly considering restarting the franchise down the road.
According to Bloody-Disgusting, “theyre already discussing it internally. It will happen.” The site adds that “It is still undecided exactly what the future of the franchise will be, though. It could be a direct remake… but then again it could also be a spinoff or maybe even a one-off sequel.”
Deadline contacted Lionsgate about the above report and Co-Chairman Rob Friedman responded with the following reply: We are not remaking Twilight. We will happily support Stephenie Meyer if she decides to proceed in any way. But this will be the last one unless that should change.”
Who do you believe? Before Deadline posted their debunking, Bloody-Disgusting said that the studio would “deny it, right here, right now. We’ll get plenty of eggs in our face. Sites will burn us at the stake like a witch during the Salem trials. Still, the fact will remain: it’s true.”
Would you want to see a new version of the franchise? Something else, such as a spin-off or a movie set in the same universe? Let us know in the comments below.
