On Friday, following the official purchase of Summit Entertainment by Lionsgate, Jon Feltheimer, chief executive of Lionsgate Entertainment, hinted to The Los Angeles Times that fans could see more of The Twilight Saga characters played by Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner.
“It’s hard for me to imagine a movie that does $700 million-plus doesn’t have ongoing value,” said Feltheimer. “It’s an amazing franchise that they have done a great job of maintaining with absolutely no deterioration.” Since Lionsgate now has the popular Stephenie Meyer series under its roof, Feltheimer was upbeat about the future of The Twilight Saga. “So the simple answer is, ‘Boy, I hope so.’”
Although The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 was supposed to wrap the mega-popular film franchise in November, the recent acquisition of Summit by Lionsgate opens a new Twilight world of possibilities, including The Twilight Saga on television.
As reported by The L.A. Times, Feltheimer admitted that The Twilight Saga on television is a hopeful possibility, especially since Lionsgate has has its own TV productions.
