Back when the news broke that there would be more "Twilight" movies, the news was hard to miss for anyone plugged into the fan base.
But not everyone heard.
It seems word hasn't reached at least on person of the "Twilight" cast. When I spoke with Kellan Lutz about the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release of "Expendables 3," this was his response to my question about his reaction to the news:
"This is the first I'm hearing of it. What's going on with it?"
So while you might be pumped for the five short films from up-and-coming female director, featuring characters from the world of "Twilight," this just goes to show how news like this travels for people who aren't just fans.
After I explained the concept to Lutz, he seemed enthusiastic and shared some of his thoughts.
"Well, that's very innovative. I have to hand it to Summit and Lionsgate. That's a great way to reach the masses again," he said. "It seems like it's going to be really interactive as well, with Facebook fans being able to voice their opinions. I just think it's a really cool idea. They better not give my character away."
But they couldn't possibly recast Emmett, right? "Nah, that happens all the time," Lutz said.
Even in that case, Lutz is still grateful for what the series meant for his career. "'Twilight' was such a blessing that I couldn't have foreseen and it doing what it did," he said. "Lionsgate is smart. Look what they're doing. I'm sure the fans are just gung-ho about that."
And even if he doesn't show up in the Facebook shorts, you can never count Emmett out of the game entirely.
"We are undead. We will never die. We will always be there," Lutz said. "You have nothing to worry about."
"The Expendables 3" hits Blu-ray and DVD on November 25 with an unrated edition.
