Following the footsteps of "New Moon" in getting a big screen treatment, Stephenie Meyer's bestselling vampire series, "Eclipse" and "Breaking Dawn", are also going to be adapted into feature film materials. On the matter, The Hollywood Reporter claims Summit Entertainment have acquired the screening rights for the "Twilight" novel series.

Bringing back "Twilight" scribe to the project, the studio have signed up Melissa Rosenberg to pen the script for "New Moon" and "Eclipse" adaptations. Meanwhile, the fourth book is yet to have any writer attached to adapt it. Additionally, words on whether director Catherine Hardwicke will continue to helm the series is yet to be offered.

While "New Moon" tells the story when Edward leaves Bella, putting her in a depression and finding friendship in another vampire, "Eclipse" centers its plot on the evolving of the relationship triangle while evil empires begin to pursue Bella. In "Breaking Dawn", a marriage between Bella and Edward will be seen.

On the first film itself, "Twilight" is a modern day love story between a teenage human girl, Bella, and a hundred-year-old vampire, Edward. Starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson as the unlikely lovers, it sees Cam Gigandet, Edi Gathegi, Rachelle Lefevre as the villains. It is slated to be released in the U.S. on November 21.
