There have recently been rumors making their rounds on the online world that Lionsgate planned to do a Twilight remake, however Summit Entertainment contacted Deadline to clear up these rumors. See below.
From Deadline :
Summit Entertainment just phoned me to publicly deny an Internet report that its parent company Lionsgate already is drawing up plans to remake the Twilight Saga by the 5th anniversary of the insanely successful movie and book series which began November 21, 2008. Summit Co-Chairman and now Lionsgate domestic movie czar Rob Friedman tells me: ”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.” What this statement means is simply that the studio will do whatever Twilight Sagaauthor Stephenie Meyer wants. She has said in some interviews that she wouldn’t mind seeing a reboot — so an evantual remake isn’t out of the realm of possibility. But as of now none is on the drawing board. Summit has released four Twilight adaptations, with the fifth and final for now film Breaking Dawn Part 2 arriving in theaters on November 16th.
A website recently reported that the Breaking Dawn movie would be shot in 3-D – however, Gossip Cop has spoken with Summit Entertainment and discovered that this is not the case. Here is what Gossip Cop has reported:
“A rep for Summit tells Gossip Cop, “Neither film is being shot in 3D,” and calls the rumors “fabricated.”
And a source informs Gossip Cop that while 3D effects can be added during post-production (as they have with some recent releases), right now it is too premature to say whether either part of Breaking Dawn will be converted.”
So here’s a recap on what we do know so far ( we will always keep you updated):
♥ 2 movies released in November 2011 and 2012 respectively
♥ Not currently shooting in 3-D, but it could be added in post production like it was for The Last Airbender.
♥ Directed by Bill Condon
♥ Shooting in Louisiana, Vancouver and potentially Brazil (still under negotiation)
