“They’re already onto the ['Breaking Dawn'] follow-up.” Those were the words that hit the net this morning from several of Movie Hole’s inside sources.
Last month it was announced that Lionsgate, who acquired the rights to Summit Entertainment this year for $412.5 million, had interest in moving forward with The Twilight Saga franchise, but only with author Mrs. Stephenie Meyer’s blessings. Several hours later, people voiced their opinions. Would we really have to deal with several more years of this? Perhaps it’s a joke? Promotion for ‘Breaking Dawn – Part 2′. That seems reasonable… right?
Of course, no one took it seriously, but perhaps we should.
A Spin-Off, Reboot, or TV Series?
Is this a spin off, a reboot, or something entirely different? Last we heard, the studio was rumored to have a reboot in mind. But could a reboot possibly be in the works this early in the game?
According to Movie Hole’s sources, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner will not return, and there’s several different ideas being bounced around, ”from a ‘TV show or film spin-off, merely set in the same world as the one in the movies but not featuring the main trio, is being seriously considered” with “The Wolf Pack, one area of interest’.”
Lionsgate, please rethink this. Go home and sleep on it a bit… and by a bit I mean several years. I’m not even sure Twilight fans are 100% behind this. Remember, nothing’s been confirmed, so before any Twi-hards or Twi-haters hit the streets with their picket signs, you may want to wait for the cast and Meyer’s to hit press screenings for Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Hopefully, they can provide some insight.
Answer this question: Would you end a franchise that’s garnered $2.5 billion? That’s the question Lionsgate will have to answer when Breaking Dawn – Part 2 hits theaters November 16th.
