Last week I reported that Lionsgate was planning on remaking the much beloved Twilight films. Now, according to Bloody Disgusting:
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.
Lionsgate's needs a fresh franchise to run alongside the Tyler Perry and Saw films that fueled them through the 00′s. Now that they have Summit, and The Hunger Gamesfranchise, revising Twilight from another studio's perspective could be just what the doctor ordered...However, Summit Entertainment is denying the situation (see the article here):
"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."
