It is being reported that Lionsgate (which recently merged with the "Twilight" franchise's Summit Entertainment) may be planning to reboot the series in over the next few years. Given the astronomical success of the cinematic renditions of "The Twilight Saga" (a $2 billion worldwide gross with a fifth instillation coming to AMC screens on November 16th) explorations into the possibility of a spin-off or remake are not surprising.

The horror site Bloody Disgusting contends that:

"They’re already discussing it internally. It will happen. It is still undecided exactly what the future of the franchise will be, though. It could be a direct remake... but then again it could also be a spinoff or maybe even a one-off sequel."

Lionsgate Co-Chairman Rob Friedman has denied the rumors saying: ”We are not remaking 'Twilight.' We will happily support Stephenie Meyer if she decides to proceed in any way. But this will be the last one unless that should change."

BD retorts:

"(The studio will) 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."

What do you believe? Do you believe we will see more of Bella, Jacob, Edward and the Cullen clan in the coming years? Would you like to see the franchise continue?

Take a look at what AMC managing editor John Campea and myself have to say about the potential reboot in the video below:
