Can’t get enough of your sparkly vampires and their freaky super-foetuses? Dreading November 16th, the date when the Twilight franchise will finally come to an end with Breaking Dawn Part 2? Well have hope, for there’s a possibility you’ll get to relive the magic of Twilight all over again with another decade of remakes!
Bloody Disgusting have reported under the ominous headline, “Lionsgate Plans On Remaking Twilight. It’s True. They’ll Deny It. But It’s True,” that the studio will begin seriously discussing plans for a reboot from the five year anniversary of the franchise’s beginning in 2013. BD aren’t naming their source, but the wording of the article suggests that they have (or think they have) inside information.
They’ll deny it, right here, right now. We’ll get plenty of eggs in our face. Sites will burn us at the stake like a witch during the Salem trials. Still, the fact will remain: it’s true.
In fact, they’re already discussing it internally. It will happen.
It is still undecided exactly what the future of the franchise will be, though. It could be a direct remake, considering the initial saga is so poorly made, but then again it could also be a spinoff or maybe even a one-off sequel. It could be anything to keep the green bills piling high. But expect a remake. Yes, quickly.
Not trolling, it’s real. Though expect them to deny it for a little while.
As of right now, the first part of Bloody Disgusting’s prediction has already come true: with interesting haste, Lionsgate reps jumped straight onto the phone with Deadline to deny the rumours, 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.
Roughly translated, this means that they’re not not going to reboot the series, but they’re not drawing up any plans at the moment. Allegedly. Of course, if they were making plans then it’s highly unlikely they would admit to it, so perhaps Bloody Disgusting are on target with the rest of their prediction.
I’m personally in favour of a reboot, if only because I’ll never grow tired of the Rifftrax commentaries for these films.
