Twilight Reboot May or May not Be In The Works.
There’s an old saying about never giving in to failure; “If at first you don’t succeed, Try, try again.” Unfortunately, movie studios should have lived by the teachings of Master Yoda instead; “Do or do not, there is no try!” They instead took this ‘try, try again’ method to heart over the years in never giving up on an idea or a long dying franchise. Major studios would later misuse the remake method as way to make more revenue off an overused idea rather than using fresh new ideas. Why wait a considerable amount of time to allow something to fade when you can simple click the reset button and start over. The Incredible Hulk and The Amazing Spider-Man is evidence of that.
We are a little over five months away from the final installment of Stephenie Meyer’s teen heart robbing sparkly vampire series Twilight with “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2”. However there seems to be something amiss just over the horizon. It appears that rumors have surfaced about a Twilight Reboot possibly happening within the next decade.
Bloody-Disgusting reported yesterday that there are alleged reports that Lionsgate is reportedly considering rebooting the Twilight series within the next decade and are “already discussing it internally.” And whether we like it or not “It will happen.”
Following this news hitting the web, Deadline contacted Co-Chairman Rob Friedman regarding the allegations of a reboot being mulled over within the company. Friedman then responded with the following reply: “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.”
Before Deadline debunked this news, Bloody-Disgusting said that the studio would “deny it, right here, right now. We’ll get plenty of eggs in our face. Sites will burn us at the stake like a witch during the Salem trials. Still, the fact will remain: it’s true.” However with that being said, Deadline pointed out that while Lionsgate has stated there isn’t any plans as of yet for a reboot in the near future, however author Stephenie Meyer has stated in a few interviews that “she wouldn’t mind seeing a reboot.” So basically whatever Meyer’s decides, Meyer’s will get.
The final installment of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson is due out in theaters everywhere November 16th 2012.
Extra Tidbit: So if a reboot does happen within the next few years as claimed by BD, do you think it’ll be able to hold on to its devout fandom?
Extra Extra Tidbit: For a reboot I say Team Jacob wins Bella’s heart this time around and no sparkly vampires!
