Summit Says ‘The Twilight Saga’ Will Not Be Rebooted
  |  @   |  

A while back when Lionsgate acquired Summit Entertainment, it was revealed in completely unsurprising fashion that a reboot of their mega-hit Twilight Saga franchise was a very real possibility.

Everyone else seems to be insta-booting their blockbuster-caliber properties—after successful and unsuccessful attempts alike—so it makes plenty of sense for Lionsgate to want to keep milking as much money out of Twilight as they can. And with their two-part adaptation of the final book in the Stephenie Meyer book series, Breaking Dawn, set close things out this coming fall season, the options were to reboot everything and start from scratch or wait for Meyer to write inevitable future installments.

Now, according to Lionsgate co-chairman Rob Friedman, it could be the latter instead of the former that the suits are leaning toward.

Friedman contacted Deadline to clarify on all of the rumors that they would be rebooting the franchise after the last movie came and went, saying:

“We are not remaking Twilight. We will happily support Stephenie Meyer if she decides to proceed in any way. But this will be the last one unless that should change.”

If anything, this at least means that people will get a chance to breath a bit before more Twilight comes to suffocate you. Not only are more movies—whether they be an adaptation of a new book in the series or a re-adaptation of the existing ones—likely, but they’re all but guaranteed (love or hate the franchise, it’d be horrible business for Lionsgate not to pounce on any and all opportunities that present themselves in relation to that gigantic freakin’ cash cow).

Are you happy to hear Lionsgate’s current stance on rebooting The Twilight Saga, or were you hoping to see a new take on it right away?
