‘The Twilight Saga’ May Continue After ‘Breaking Dawn’

The Twilight Saga may continue after Breaking DawnThe Twilight Saga will come to a close later this year, when The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 hits theaters November 16... or will it? We reported last week that Lionsgate has finalized a deal to acquire The Twilight Saga distributor Summit Entertainment, and Lionsgate president Jon Feltheimer hopes the franchise continues beyond the finale. Here's what he had to say below.

"It's hard for me to imagine a movie that does $700 million-plus doesn't have ongoing value. It's an amazing franchise that they have done a great job of maintaining with absolutely no deterioration. So the simple answer is 'Boy I hope so.'"

Since Lionsgate has a television unit, there is a possibility that Stephenie Meyer's novels may be adapted for the small screen. Actor Jackson Rathbone, who plays Jasper Hale in The Twilight Saga, revealed he has heard rumblings of the series continuing.

"Maybe go back into some of the back stories. There's been talk of shorts and different new media, too."

Nothing has been confirmed yet, but with the Lionsgate/Summit merger, it wouldn't be surprising if they come up with a way to continue this saga.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 was released November 16th, 2012.

    I think it would be a mistake to continue the story from where it left off. What would be brilliant is if she picked up the story several years later with a grown Renesme and Jacob dealing with a Vampire/Human hybrid/ Werewolf couple and The Volture. If the Volture were so fascinated by a Vamp/HUman hybrid, how would they react to a child of that hybrid and their natural enemy- a werewolf? C'mon, Steph. You can give me a shout if you want more of my ideas on how to continue this story.

                @gandoff haha that is true, I didn't really think about that. I totally forgot about all that extra matrix sh*t. lol. I think everyone did. I could definitely see that happening, but, we'll just have to wait and see.

                    @dan1 -- That basically sums up my feelings towards this article. Garbage will officially be around forever, while our entertainment continues to get more and more degenerating.

                      Every time I read an article like this I think of all the actual talent thats out there; great writers, people working on fantastic scripts, directors with great ideas. And instead of going in that direction, Hollywood goes ahead and does this.

                      They weren't happy enough breaking the last movie in two, now they gotta do more. If the author actually writes another novel, they'll probably break it up into 4 parts.

                            As a somewhat fan of Twilight (The books and only two of the movies), I say....NO! HELL NO! Why do such a thing? Even fans will be upset over this. An ending is an ending.

                            I know Bree Turner turned into a book, but why can't they just straight-to-dvd that? The book was only 100 pages; there isn't enough to be a full-length film.

                                  It will be another excuse for the all the girl friends and wife's to be able to say OMG Twilight is the best movie ever, man they get annoying especially after being dragged to watch breaking dawn part 1 and realising that its a whole 2 and something hours that nothing happens in. Then coming home to be told 10 reason why that film series is better than lord of the rings. Like hell that is the case. Suppose it is a cash cow and that would explain the constant need to keep it going. Money speaks it would seem.
