Considering that the last movie in the “Twilight Saga” has yet to be released, it seems a bit early to reboot the whole franchise just four years after the first movie hit theaters. That rumor began to spread earlier this summer, with the chatter including the caveat that it would all be tied to the film’s fifth anniversary in 2013.
The studio released a statement to Deadline at the time that as far as they are concerned “Breaking Dawn — Part 2” is the end of “Twilight” on the big screen, unless of course the franchise’s author, Stephenie Meyer, has other plans in mind to re-imagine Edward, Bella and all their pals for a brand-new “Twilight” look.
So, when MTV News spoke to Meyer at Comic-Con in San Diego on Thursday (July 12), she explained that she’s not against a reboot, but just not yet. “I think that obviously that could happen, and in the right scenario, it might be something that I’d be excited about,” she said.
She added that if, and it’s a major if, it did happen it would be closer to 15 years down the road. “I don’t see them doing that without [me]. [The studio and I] have a pretty good relationship,” she said. “It’s a nice friendship at this point.”
“Twilight” will bid a final farewell on November 16 with the release of “Breaking Dawn – Part 2,” but with all parties not counting out anything in the Twi-verse, fans shouldn’t rule out a somewhere-down-the-line something just yet.
“We are not remaking ’Twilight,’ ” the studio previously said. “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.”
