Lionsgate May Consider Rebooting Twilight Franchise; New Trailer Revealed

With the last installment of the mega-popular film franchise just around the corner, Lionsgate may be looking for ways to keep the series going. Lionsgate has been looking into rebooting the Twilight Saga franchise, which has already grossed $2 billion with the fifth and final installment set for release Nov. 16.

Lionsgate owns the studio Summit Entertainment, which made the popular films. ComingSoon has reported that Lionsgate is considering restarting the franchise “down the road,” so it may not happen anytime soon, if it happens at all. But according to Bloody-Disgusting, “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… but then again it could also be a spinoff or maybe even a one-off sequel.”

Lionsgate Co-Chairman Rob Friedman had different news for Deadline, telling them.

“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.”

A brand new trailer has also been released for the upcoming fifth film, entitled Twilight: Breaking Dawn Pt 2, which you can see below:
