Original cast could be returning to the big screen
A new Twilight movie could be in the works, as Lionsgate chief Patrick Wachsberger has shown interest in continuing the vampire romance.
Based on four books by author Stephanie Meyer, the five films grossed £2.5 billion worldwide, making the Twilight Saga one of the biggest film franchises ever.
Speaking to Screen Daily, Wachsberger said: “It’s a possibility. Not a certainty, but it’s a possibility.” He continued: “It’s about Stephenie [Meyer]. If she wants to tell a story related to those characters, we’re here for her.”
Robert Pattinson starred as vampire Edward Cullen in the film series. At the Berlin Film Festival, Pattinson was asked about the possibility of Twilight returning. He said: “I’d be curious what Stephenie would write, but I just think I’d probably be too old. I’m already too old. But yeah, it’d be kind of interesting.”
Last year, Kristen Stewart said that she would be “kind of fascinated” by a future reboot of Twilight. Stewart starred as Bella Swan in the films.
Asked how she would feel if Hollywood attempted to cash in on Twilight‘s popularity again by rebooting the franchise, Stewart replied: “To be honest with you: I would be interested. I’d be kind of fascinated, but it wouldn’t emotionally affect me one way or the other.”
