Well here’s something really horrifying, guaranteed to really send shivers up the spine of anyone with even a tiny amount of taste in movies. The Twilight Saga was truly appalling, but it made a huge amount of money, mostly it seems from teenage girls. So it makes sense that Summit/Lionsgate wouldn’t want to give up this cash cow yet, even if all of Stephanie Meyer’s books have now been adapted. After all, their Divergent series, despite being rather better,  has been a commercial disappointment and the final film is now going to be a TV movie.

Speaking to Screen Daily at the Zurich Film Festival, Patrick Wachsberger, the co-chairman of Lionsgate and former head of Summit, said:

“It’s a possibility. Not a certainty but it’s a possibility. It’s about Stephenie. If she wants to tell a story related to those characters we’re here for her. Twilight was a game changer for everyone involved”.

The risk they take with this is that it’s doubtful that Kristen Stewart or Robert Pattinson, who have both gone on to far better things and really proved themselves, will want to return, which will disappoint much of the fan base, though Taylor Lautner badly needs a hit…

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.

  1. I hope they don’t carry this series on! It’s horrible and should stay dead. There’s a reason you find the Blu-Ray’s of ALL the Twilight movies in pound land…they’re not even worth that price haha.
