More Twilight movies on the way after Breaking Dawn Part 2?
I'm so sorry that I am posting this on GameZone. As we build our Movies/Entertainment section, it's inevitable that Twilight will make some appearance. If you are a Twi-hard, then this news should make you squeal in delight as you stare at your Robert Pattinson pillow case.
Collider reported that Lionsgate (they make the Twilight movies) would make more Twilight movies past Breaking Dawn Part 2, but there's a catch. There's no more Twilight books to use as material. Making another Twilight movie is contingent on Stephanie Meyer extending the series with another book.
Lionsgate exec Rob Friedman said in a conference call that "If Meyere wishes to do it, we'll be there to support her." No sh*t. You'd be stupid not to make another movie off this series that seems to just vomit insane amounts of money off of ticket sales, dvd sales, and merchandise.
How does Stephanie Meyer feel about a fifth entry in the Twilight series? Well, back in 2009, Meyer said:
I am a little burned out on vampires right now. I think I need a little break. I might go spend some time with my aliens. I might do something completely different. I've got to cleanse the palate. I may come back to it. I did envision it as a longer series. But I wrapped Breaking Dawn in a way that I felt satisfied with, so if that moment didn't come, I'd be okay.
Well, she got a little break. A few years have passed. Personally, I think it'd be silly to not continue adding more entries into the series. You know they're going to sell well. And who cares what fans may think if the books aren't good? That didn't stop George Lucas from making more Star Wars movies.
There's room for more unique takes on classic horror species. Mummies are out there still. Maybe do a mummy that is wrapped in gift wrap, and when they fart, flowers grow. You already ruined vampires, so why not?
Saturday Night Live (SNL) already gave some good source material, if you're looking for some fresh ideas, Stephanie.
