Summit Entertainment has confirmed that its parent company Lionsgate has no plan to reboot the "Twilight" franchise. The rumor that the studio wanted to remake the vampire series films has surfaced since the last installment, "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part II", is nearing its premiere date.
"We are not remaking Twilight. We will happily support Stephanie Meyer if she decides to proceed in any way. But this will be the last one unless that should change," Summit's co-chairman Rob Friedman told Deadline.
During interviews, the "Twilight" saga author has expressed her interest in rebooting the films to mark the fifth anniversary of the movie and book series beginning next year. This means that there is still a possibility of a reboot should she push the idea forward.
Bloody Disgusting which first reported the reboot insisted that "They'll deny it, right here, right now. We'll get plenty of eggs in our face. Sites will burn us at the stake like a witch during the Salem trials. Still, the fact will remain: it's true." The site reported that the execs have even discussed it internally.
"Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part II" hits U.S. theaters on November 16.
