Lionsgate chairman says more Twilight movies are a "possibility"

09.27.2016

One of the greatest joys in my life was when the TWILIGHT series ended. I know a lot of people worked very hard on them, and the series has plenty of fans, but come on, the series has a lot in common with Michael Bay movies in that they made a lot of money, but you basically have to like them ironically or risk ridicule. But, like the monster that had a stake driven through it’s heart, there’s always the fear the beast is never truly dead.

During an interview with Screen Daily Lionsgate co-chairman Patrick Wachsberger was asked about the possibility of new TWILIGHT movies:

“It's a possibility. Not a certainty but it's a possibility. It's about Stephenie [novelist Stephenie Meyer]. If she wants to tell a story related to those characters we're here for her.”

This news follows along with Wachsberger talking about other YA adaptations the studio is focusing on, like THE KINGKILLER CHRONICLE, which he said is "not dissimilar to the world of The Lord Of The Rings." As well, they are working on the CHAOS WALKING series from Patrick Ness (A MONSTER CALLS), set to be directed by Doug Liman and starring Daisy Ridley. But despite how good all that other stuff sounds that bit about TWILIGHT gives me a feeling, a feeling I’ve not felt since…

Sick references aside, this news may give people a bad feeling in the gut, but shouldn’t exactly come as shocking. I’m sure if a new full-length HARRY POTTER book was on the way we would know more about the movie than the book itself, and don’t deny that if an unearthed J.R.R. Tolkien book came about Peter Jackson would be figuring out how to turn it into a trilogy. But something about saying more TWILIGHT movies is a possibility seems for naught. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson seem to have artistically outgrown their roles as Bella and Edward, and lord knows there’s no movie without them. Plus, YA movies seem to be on a decline box office wise, with Wachsberger saying the DIVERGENT series “has moved to the TV division now.” TWILIGHT doesn't seem to have a world worth revisiting, either in book or movie form, so maybe it's just best to focus on something new and let what's dead stay dead. As a wise man once said, "Sometimes, dead is better."

Isn't there a kind of 'elseworld' or 'what if...?' book where she's the sparkling vampire and he's the human ?
How come they haven't adapted it yet ?
I mean, it's not like releasing a bad movie based on a bad book ever stopped Studios of doing it, right ?
