Lionsgate CEO says there are ‘more stories to be told’ in the Hunger Games and Twilight universes
Did the Twilight and Hunger Games franchises end too early for you? Well, it’s possible that you might be in luck. According to Variety, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer discussed the future of these franchises during a quarterly earnings call on Tuesday. “There are a lot more stories to be told, and we’re ready to tell them when our creators are ready to tell those stories,” he said during the call. Feltheimer reportedly implied that they would only continue with the consent of “Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer and “Hunger Games” author Suzanne Collins.
The Twilight film franchise is based on the four novel series by Meyer and consisted of five films: Twilight (2008), The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009), The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010), The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 (2011) and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 (2012). The series has grossed over $3.3 billion worldwide and starred Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner. Meyer is currently executive producing the upcoming supernatural thriller The Rook at Starz, with Stephen Garrett serving as showrunning executive producer. The Twilight series told the love story of human Bella and vampire Edward, though there could be more about their continuing adventures together.
The Hunger Games film franchise is based on the trilogy of novels from Collins and consisted of four films: The Hunger Games (2012), The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013), The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 (2014) and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 (2015). The films starred Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks. The series grossed over $2.9 billion worldwide. Though the franchise seemed to end the story of Katniss Everdeen, they could tell later tales about her life or prequels about any of the earlier Hunger Games mentioned in the books and films.
