Singer says she finds Stephanie Meyer's novels and the film adaptation to be 'timeless'
Fleetwood Mac‘s Stevie Nicks has compared Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight novels to Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre.
The singer made the comments at the world film premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 in Los Angeles last night (November 12), and said watching the final film in the franchise was “bittersweet”.
She told Digital Spy: “I really would be happier if it was not ending. I wish it could go on forever. I think that [Stephenie Meyer] is probably…god knows how long it took her to write this. And it’s been five years!
“It’s a huge love story…I was just saying to the last [journalist], it’s like Wuthering Heights, it’s that kind of story…it’s like Jane Eyre…it’s a totally timeless kind of story that we can relate to.”
Stephenie Meyer has refused to rule out writing further books in the series in the future. Asked about the possibility of writing more novels in the Twilight universe in the future, she said: “I wouldn’t say no absolutely. I’m not going to do it today, but I don’t know how I’m going to feel in five years.”
She went on to tease: “I planned out where it would go for a couple more books. There are other characters who I think would have a lot of voice in those coming stories…maybe someday, I’ll write it out just for myself. We’ll see.”
Breaking Dawn – Part 2 gets its UK premiere on November 14 before opening in cinemas on November 16. Last month, it was reported that the makers of Twilight are already hatching plans for a film or TV spin-off. This would not feature Pattinson and Stewart, but “merely [be] set in the same world as the one in the movies”.
