Lionsgate Supposedly Looking To Remake 'Twilight', Unless You Have a Better Way To Keep Making Money Off It
With Breaking Dawn, Part 2 this fall completing The Twilight Saga, drawing down the flesh-toned shirt that's forever shuttering the Lautner ab factory, Lionsgate is already reportedly looking for ways to prolong their recently-acquired franchise. And as we know, the laziest and therefore most-likely way to extend the dying franchise's life is to senselessly remake it.
Though the studio is already denying it, BloodyDisgusting claims--and maintains, despite the denial--Lionsgate/Summit Entertainment are internally having serious discussions as to how Twilight could be bled of all life, sucked dry, vampire puns, by quickly rebooting the four-year-old franchise. Lionsgate has been vocal about hopes to extend the series, perhaps into a television show, but this story adds to that the claim the studio may just go with an outright make of the 2008 film, saying, "it could also be a spinoff or maybe even a one-off sequel ... But expect a remake."
As previously noted, Summit Entertainment has privately called Deadline and given a statement of formal denial, saying:
"We are not remaking Twilight. We will happily support Stephanie Meyer if she decides to proceed in any way. But this will be the last one unless that should change."
But as also previously noted, BloodyDisgusting claims this denial is bullshit, so you'll have decide for yourself who to believe. Follow you heart, but keep in mind: would nature be so cruel as to give us two Twilight adaptations, but only one back to adorn in Robert Pattinson's image?
