Twilight Reboot? Over my dead body
The “Twilight Saga” wraps up in November with the release of “Breaking Dawn Part 2,” but that might not be the last time you hear from Edward and Bella. According to the website Bloody Disgusting, executives from Lionsgate and Summit — the studios behind “Twilight” — are privately chatting about a potential franchise reboot.
Summit was purchased by Lionsgate last year, giving the super-studio the franchise rights to both “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games.” With at least two more “Games” films coming in the next two years — and potentially a third film, should the studio officially decide to split up “Mockingjay,” the final “Hunger Games” book, as has been rumored — Lionsgate and Summit will have plenty of YA money in the coffers through 2015. Whether any “Twilight” reboot happens after that is obviously unclear, but stranger things have happened. After all, “The Amazing Spider-Man,” a reboot of your friendly neighborhood superhero franchise, is hitting theaters next month — just five years after the last “Spider-Man” film.
