The majority of you no doubt just hung your heads and rolled your eyes, we went for a more subtle approach and threw ourselves to the ground, tore off our shirt a la Jacob and howled in pain! A lot of pain.
Some of S 22 HQ loved the books, liked the films, some hate them more than a marmite hater dislikes twiglets and the ones amongst us who could be deemed as fans are now instantly up in arms as Stephanie Myer did not pen anymore books so the big question is how do Lionsgate intend to continue the saga after the release of Breaking Dawn Part 2 this November?
Lionsgate recently bought Twilight producers Summit Entertainment for $412.5 million and Lionsgate CEO John Feltheimer has suggested that more Twilight tales may be developed.There is no question of why, the CEO has explained that one quite firmly:
“I’m anticipating Breaking Dawn – Part II being $700 million-plus in worldwide box office.”
“It’s hard for me to imagine a movie that does $700 million-plus doesn’t have ongoing value. It’s an amazing franchise that they have done a great job of maintaining with absolutely no deterioration. So the simple answer [to whether there could be more Twilight films] is ‘Boy I hope so.’”
So the likelihood is that if it did continue then without source material that the cast wouldn’t return and surely we couldn’t watch an expansion on the franchise without Kristen, Robert and Taylor? But Twihards who are absolutely desperate for more supernatural stories may be pleased to learn that a Twilight TV series is being considered. Oh no.
What do you reckon, think there’s blood left in this? Or should the studio just stop seeing dollar signs and leave the world of vampire meets girl, meets werewolf etc be left well and truly alone until the reboot hits?
