In June rumors surfaced stating Summit (and now parent studio Lionsgate) was already considering ways to continue the Twilight franchise beyond the five films.

Now a new source has come about offering a couple more particulars.

Moviehole.net, who we discovered through Bloody Disgusting, heard today that “they’re onto the [Breaking Dawn] follow-up,” but a decision hasn’t been made as to on what type of medium it will be created.

The aforementioned source says they’ve heard it could be a television show or a film spin-off set in the same world as the Twilight Saga but not centering upon three lead characters Edward, Bella, and Jacob. One idea currently being tossed around would focus on the Wolf Pack.

To us, a Wolf Pack show or film may be the best bet. The studio is likely looking at the runaway success of MTV’s Teen Wolf which, if you ask us, was only created because Twilight popularized wolves (the show is based on the 1985 film of the same name) in recent years.

The other big question concerning the continuation of the franchise is whether or not Stephenie Meyer, the book series’ author, will be involved. Then there’s Melissa Rosenberg who penned each of the five films. Both women had a key role in the success of the book to film adaptations.

With publicity for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 set to begin in a couple weeks, the cast and crew will naturally be posed questions about whether or not they’ll miss the franchise, and that may lead to questions about their interest in a reboot or spin-off.

When these rumors initially surfaced over the summer, Summit denied a “remake” but didn’t comment on a spin off. “We will happily support Stephanie Meyer if she decides to proceed in any way,” they said.

Films-turned-TV-spin-offs may be a new trend. In August, Joss Whedon started developing an Avengers television show for ABC based on his film but not using those same Avengers heroes.

Breaking Dawn – Part 2 promotional material uses the phrase “forever” – now you know why.

Would you be receptive to a ‘Twilight’ reboot or spin-off?

  • LillyCPB

    I don’t think this is true. The studio released a statement, or mentioned something somewhere, that this would be the last film — UNLESS, Stephenie decided to write another book to add to the series. I really don’t believe the hype.

  • bethanny23

    Really? Ugh, I thought this mindless franchise was finally going to be over..

    • Tomas

      Mindless? I’d say it’s less mindless and stupid than the hunger games. Man, that book sucked, as did the movie. So keep your stupid comment for yourself

      • Jeff Dodge

        Umm…as much as I enjoy the Twilight books, The Hunger Games do have actual meaning to them. The stories and themes and messages in The Hunger Games are so extremely powerful that you can take most aspects of those stories and relate them to horrific things that happen in real life in certain countries.

      • http://twitter.com/acjub CK

        The Hunger Games is about a suppressed people who finally stands up to fight for their freedom. A girl who gets thrown into a war and has no choice but to fight for her life.
        Twilight is about how awesome it is to dry hump a sexy vampire…

      • Bobathin

        The Hunger Games is an amazing series with a female character who actually fights. Bella sits there and waits for her sparkly (And I’m still laughing at the whole Vampires sparkle crap) boyfriend to do all the work or come and save her.

      • fireboltgurl

      How is this even clever? What does Dumbledore have to do with anything? Does Dumbledore typically hate spin offs?

    Oh God! I hope not! As much as I like Twilight, can you please just end it with this last movie. One thing I would like though, is for her to publish Midnight Sun. But I highly doubt that would happen since its been a few years since the first 12 chapters were leaked and posted on her site.

  • Tom

    WHY WHY WHY..LOSERS!! When will ppl get this is crap? AND PLZ..notice how they´ve copied HP7 promotional material (posters,banners) layout and phrases..it´s soo obvious and lame!!

    • PotionWillow207

      Um, first, name calling is not necessary. Second, did you not know that there is no such thing as an original idea? The HP poster stuff wasn’t new or original. It all get’s copied from someone else’s ideas.

  • ravenclaw1991

    HELL TO THE NO! And I’m sorry, but Jeff Davis did NOT create Teen Wolf on MTV because Twilight made werewolves popular. The ‘werewolves’ in Twilight aren’t even freaking werewolves. They’re more like Animagi. They turn in to actual wolves! Werewolves are part man, part wolf! Like in Teen Wolf and in Harry Potter.

    Please just stop tormenting us with this mindless, plotless rubbish! Let Breaking Dawn Part 2 come out and end it there. PLEASE! The world has endured enough torture! Even terrible things have to have an end, let this 5th (and pointless movie) be the end.

  • Kris

    Twilight popularized wolves? Ever heard of An American Werewolf in London? REMUS LUPIN?! Quentin Collins? Twilight popularized nothing but sparkling.

    • ravenclaw1991

      THIS! MY GOD YES. They aren’t even werewolves in Twilight!

    • http://www.hypable.com/ Andrew Sims

      Remus Lupin isn’t a mainstream wolf. Jacob Black is. I’m talking about in this modern era.. I’ve never heard of ‘an american werewolf’ and ‘quentin collins’.. I really doubt THOSE made wolves cool again.

      • Ok

        Modern refers to the last 50 years so you have an editing issue there on which Kris’s criticism is well founded. Twilight is not original in this respect not even for the resurgence of the wolf in popular culture. There have been numerous and vastly successful works produced in the last 10 years including Underworld, Vampire Diaries, Trublood and Teen wolf. Also, your comparison between Jacob and Remus is flawed – both are supporting characters cursed by the werewolf affliction. Might want to check your skills and your facts before you start smacking down the fan base that justifies your existence

        • PotionWillow207

          Except that if you knew anything at all about Twilight, even just from reading comments on Hypable, you would know that Jacob isn’t a werewolf at all. He’s a shapeshifter. That was Andrew’s point in relating the difference between Jacob and Remus. YOU might want to check your facts before you start smacking down on people.

          • Ok

            Your comments are also unfounded. While I agree that Jacob is more accurately described as a shapeshifter that is not how his character has been presented in the series nor is it how Stephanie Myer describes him outside the story itself. Quote from Myers own website as a “werewolf” http://www.stepheniemeyer.com/nm_thestory.html

            You have to respect the authors creation despite any divergence from the usual conventions of the genre.

            Back to the original point, the criticism of the claim that Twilight popularised werewolves is entirely warranted. Useful feedback from readers should be received openly particularly when it would assist in improving the publication.

          • http://twitter.com/StarkidSims Simone

            I’m not even a fan of Twilight but it has definitely popularised werewolves, and vampires too – is Twilight the only franchise that popularised werewolves? no but it is a MAJOR one. I don’t know how anyone could think it hasn’t. Also comments aside can’t change the fact that in the BOOKS where it matters, the entire pack are proved to not be true werewolves at all, they ARE shapeshifters. Unless she rewrote the books Stephanie can’t change that (and yes I have read all the books). Also ‘you might want to check your skills and your facts before you start smacking down the fan base that justifies your existence’ < this is not okay. If you have issues with the people that bring you a website and its features then either stop complaining or don't use it. This is bullying and uncalled for.

          • PotionWillow207

            She says they are werewolves by the basic description because they are men who turn into wolves. But if you read the whole thing (or the books) you would see that there are some major distinctions that make them shape shifters. It is also explained in detail in the story. I do respect the author’s creation which states undeniably, several times, that the Quileute wolves are not werewolves. They are shape shifters.

            And I have no problem with “useful feedback,” but not when the author’s intentions are misunderstood or taken out of context. Wolves are certainly more popular post-Twilight than they were before the release of the books. So even though it may not be the sole reason for the sudden popularity it has most definitely contributed to it. So I would not say it is unwarranted or ridiculous or any of the other unfair things that Twilight haters are saying. If you don’t like a series that’s fine, but to deny Twilight’s popularity or influence on YA literature in particular is closing your eyes to the obvious.

    • http://www.hypable.com/ Andrew Sims

      In my article I’m talking in regards to a current trend, not in the wide history of pop culture.

    • Sahrish

      I’m sure Twilight helped along the process of werewolves being cool again, but I have to say I think T.V shows like True Blood and The Vampire Diaries also did help.

  • http://twitter.com/RachelgurlFL Rachel Gay

    i enjoy twilight but this sounds like a awful idea

  • Sisi

    3 words- LET. IT. GO.

  • Tomas

    Mmmmm, fuck off with all the pathetic haters on this page.
    This seems like a very bad idea. I LOVE Twilight, it is and always will be a huge part
    of my life, but a spin-off would totally ruin that for me. The last movie is coming, and it’s going to be completely epic. But I wouldn’t want a coninuation on the saga.
    That would be like making a Harry Potter TV series. VERY, VERY bad idea.

  • 7Starrchasers

    Waht teh atcual fcuk…….

  • azileea

    Oh. My god. I loved Twilight & New Moon. But for me the series got worse and worse and the ending was just bad. I just can’t imagine how they could make it better, even with different characters. Wolves were interesting, I love Leah as a character. But what would the plot consist of if not imprinting? Boring.
    Continuing the story of Renesmee/Jacob? Nah. Edward/Bella? No. Other Cullens? Not really.
    A prequel on the lives of the Cullens before Bella? Would work as a fan fiction maybe.

    I just don’t know. If someone has good ideas about possible storylines, I’m all ears. But just now, it feels like a not good idea.

    • ravenclaw1991

      I read the series once. Only because I kept saying it sucked and I hated it and my friend who liked it kept saying I could say that because I hadn’t read it. So I read it and it wasn’t as bad as I was expecting, but I still didn’t care for it. The first book was my favourite. I hated the second one. The third one wasn’t too bad, but I didn’t like the last one.

      Even for someone that didn’t care for the series, my favourite was Alice.

  • Ross

    NOOOOOOOO!!!! It’s gone on for long enough and taken up enough of my life! It will wnd with Breaking Dawn-Part 2 which will get terrible ratings and then they won’t do a spin off…

  • Gary65

    Meh. Who cares? The world gonna end come Xmas anyway. I knew the Mayans were good for something.

  • Delena

    Wow. The Twilight series is actually going to make people who like it tired of Twilight. I’m no Twilight fan so I don’t really care. I’m not gonna watch it and it’s not my fandom to be worrying over. However, I do actually feel bad for people who love the Twilight books because Summit is obviously gonna bleed it till it’s dry (no pun intended). I mean- just think, what if WB decided to do a Harry Potter spin off series? I’d most likely be pissed off and I’m sure lots of other HP fans would too. I usually don’t feel for the Twilight fandom, but this is just ridiculous. I’m sorry Twihards. Us Potter fans thought WB was greedy with all their special editions and wizard’s collection, but diminishing the series you love with a spin off? I’m sure you’re killing your fans. Just stop, Summit. Stop with the last movie. WB did and they’re still making a shit ton of money off of Harry Potter. If the spin off series does happen, I can actually say I feel bad for those who really love Twilight.

THAT WOULD BE COOL. ESME’S JUMP, EDWARDS MOM PLEADING AND DID SHE REALLY KNOW WHAT CARLISLE COULD DO FOR EDWARD? LOTS OF ANGLES….MAYBE THE FANS COULD WRITE THIS ONE… WHAT DO YA ALL THINK?

    • Suzanne

      I am a huge Twilight fan and I agree with you that there are so many stories to still be written and I will probably read them all (just like the fanfic out there). However, I for one do not want a spin-off of anyone. No wolves, no vamps, no hybrids. No re-boots either. The only movie or spin-off I would be interested in is one that Stephenie Meyer is directly involved with. These are her characters and should remain so. BTW I hope if there are future projects with Stephenie, that Melissa Rosenberg is not involved. She pretty much ruined the first film.

  • PotionWillow207

    I think this is a complete load of bunk. Also, it’s not a new rumor. This has been floating around since before Part 1 when Robert Pattinson mentioned it might be a possibility.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001113783924 Asja ‘Merina’ Dally

    Much as I love Twilight…I think Breaking Dawn: Part 2 should be the last movie they do. They’ve already stretched it by splitting the final book – it’s time to take a break. Fingers crossed Stephenie releases Midnight Sun instead!

  • JohnMandrake

    Just kill that stupid Edward and make a Bellice show! :p

  • Slytherinhero01

    Meh. This fandom went to the ground the second the actress who plays the main ‘heroine’ (if that’s what you want to call a cardboard cutout) was caught having an affair with a married man. Now it’s even more of a joke than it was before.

  • Rene Gonzalez

    Pardon my French, but this is f**king ridiculous!

  • Angela Moorehouse

    make it a complete remake of the entire movies and I’ll be very happy, as long as Catherine Hardwicke DOESN’T TOUCH IT! she made the first movie and Indie film, which is why it sucked, the only good thing about the first movie was that it had Paramore and Linkin Park in it, cast Emily Browning as Bella and Ben Barnes (Prince Caspian From Narnia) as Edward and you’ve got a great thing going already, also get rid of all the characters and scenes that were added in, but weren’t in the books, and bring in Lauren Mallory, make the special affects and makeup affects better, I agree with the casting choices for the rest of the cast, especially Carlisle, but I don’t like Robert Pattinson as Edward, for me, Robert murdered Edward completely
