Could original 'Twilight' movies not based on the novels be on the way?
There has been industry scuttlebutt, but rarely discussed amongst the fanbase, that Summit (or perhaps a future buyer of the company) could explore the "Twilight" universe with movies not based on specific Stephenie Meyer novels. Imagine a movie just about the Volturi or the Wolfpack for instance. When HitFix floated this scenario to franchise screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg this past week she found it hard to believe creator Meyer would sanction films not created on her specific novels.
"The person who writes 'Twilight' is Stephenie and she's the one who creates the original stories and characters," Rosenberg says. "She could certainly expand it as she has created a world of rich characters [outside of the books, but] I hope she doesn't."
Unfortunately, as Rosenberg is well aware, never say never in Hollywood.
