Daily Star's report that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will be signed to reprise their 'Twilight' roles for TV has been denied.
The report that Robert Pattinson will get a huge deal for starring in the TV version of "Twilight" is dismissed. A representative of Summit Entertainment that distributes the movie has denied that there is any truth to the story.
Over the weekend, a news was quick to spread that Pattinson will get $500 million if he agrees to star in a television series based on "Twilight". The number reportedly will be the biggest contract in Hollywood history with the actor landing as much as $1.5 million per episode.
Summit allegedly wanted to kick off the deal early next year and Kristen Stewart is also wanted to reprise her role as Bella Swan. The actress is expected to join Pattinson for a filming after the third installment "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse" shooting is wrapped.
"Twilight" has spawned a sequel "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" which was released on U.S. theaters as of Friday, November 20. The movie opened huge with $140.7 million in box office, becoming the third biggest opening weekend of all time behind "The Dark Knight" and "Spider-Man 3".
"Twilight" is indeed coming to television but not as a TV series. Showtime had bought the rights to have the TV premiere of the 2008 movie and will air it on January 23.
