Remember this? When we said “Twilight will return. In fact, they’re already discussing it internally. It will happen. 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.”
This report was denied again and again but, in all honesty, it doesn’t make financial sense for it not to be true. Now Moviehole has additional details, “When I was informed an hour or so back that “They’re already onto the [Breaking Dawn] follow-up”, I wasn’t surprised, but naturally intrigued. Details are skim but apparently Bloody Disgusting’s earlier sources that some sort of ‘reboot’ of the series was in development, were on the money.”
Exactly what kind of direction will the franchise move in? Head inside for a taste of the ideas they’re kicking around.
For one, it probably won’t feature Pattinson, Stewart and Lautner. According to Moviehole’s source “A TV show or film spin-off, merely set in the same world as the one in the movies but not featuring the main trio, is being seriously considered” with “The Wolf Pack” [being] one area of interest.”
I’m not a fan of the series but it will be fascinating to see where this goes from a brand survival standpoint. I haven’t seen MTV’s “Teen Wolf”, but I’m imagining a TV show featuring the Wolf Pack would be similar (and would certainly be on Larry Clark’s DVR). I’m guessing it’ll be theatrical though. I have no inside knowledge to that particular effect, but it seems like the safer option. I imagine if Peter Facinelli is alive at the end of Breaking Dawn he’d be game.
Or, even better? Let’s switch back to TV for a second and imagine a world where there’s an hour-long medical procedural show, except the doctor is a vampire! Call it “Dr. Cullen.” It’ll be like “House” but instead of being a jerk, he sparkles. Instead of popping Vicodin, he drinks blood. You get the idea.
