This is not a joke. This is not a hoax. This is for real: “Twilight” is coming back!
As announced by the The New York Times, Lionsgate is resurrecting its supremely popular supernatural romance saga in the form of a series of “mini-movies,” set to premiere exclusively on Facebook next year.
According to the report, Lionsgate and “Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer will select “five aspiring female directors” to helm short films centered on the characters of the “Twilight” universe. “The female voice is something that has become more and more important to me as I’ve worked in the film industry,” Meyer told the Times.
As for using Facebook as the platform to launch the new “Twilight” movies, Lionsgate’s Michael Burns said: “We think Facebook is a great way for us to introduce the world of ‘Twilight’ to a whole new audience while re-energizing existing fans.” He added that these “Twilight” mini-movies are “just the beginning — a template, if you will.”
“You can probably guess what might be coming next,” he teased.
Could he be referencing a similar mini-movie treatment for Lionsgate’s other hot property, “The Hunger Games,” once that franchise ends in 2015? Is he alluding to further full-length feature films set in the “Twilight” universe, assuming the mini-movies are profitable?
Whatever the case, one thing’s clear: “Twilight” is back. The franchise that first hit theaters in 2008 and last graced screens with 2012?s “Breaking Dawn — Part 2? will live on. Brace yourself accordingly.
The new “Twilight” mini-movies are expected to premiere on Facebook next year.
It’s been 6 years since the first Twilight movie. SIX YEARS.
A lot has happened since then…and it might surprise you what the Cullen clan have been doing…
Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen)
Age Then: 22
Age Now: 28 (D.O.B – May 13, 1986)
Personal Life: Unless you have been living under a lichen-covered rock in the wilds of Alaska, Rob’s personal life needs no explaining.
Life imitated art when Pattinson started dating his Twilight sweetheart at some point in 2009. Although there are plenty of images of the pair smooching and walking hand-in-hand from 2009-2010, the first public acknowledgement of their relationship came in October 2011 when Kristen called Rob her boyfriend in an interview with GQ magazine.
The next time the pair mentioned their relationship publicly was under adverse circumstances in July 2012.
That was the fateful year where Kristen Stewart was photographed fumbling with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. Stewart finally confirmed her and R-Patz’s status when she released the following heartfelt statement;
I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry
The lovestruck pair spent some time apart, but were well and truly back on by October 2012.
Unfortunately, loves young dream wasn’t meant to be and the couple split for good in May 2013… Unless you believe the constant hissing of tabloid whispers about secret reunions.
Since the KStew split, Rob has been romantically linked to multiple lucky ladies such as Katy Perry, Imogen Kerr and Riley Keough but nothing has crept beyond the rumor stage.
Life After Twilight: Desperate to avoid being typecast as a brooding teen idol, Robert Pattinson’s post-Twilight portfolio is a diverse affair.
While still portraying Edward Cullen in the five part series, Pattinson took on more left-field roles such as Salvatore Dali in Little Ashes and a 28-year-old billionaire in David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis (2012).
After his Twilight obligations were fulfilled, Pattinson really went down and dirty by taking on the role of a mentally challenged outlaw named Rey in David Michod’s The Rover (2014). The 28-year-old actor has received an enormous amount of critical acclaim for this performance.
This year, we can look forward to seeing Rob in a variety of diverse roles including T. E. Lawrence (AKA Lawrence of Arabia) in Queen of the Desert, a fame-obsessed limo driver in Maps to the Starsand a paparazzo who befriends James Dean in Life.
Pattinson is also in talks to play a gangster in a Harmony Korine directed flick.
Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan)
Age Then: 18
Age Now: 24 (D.O.B – April 9, 1990)
Personal Life: Do I really have to tell the whole depressing tale again?
Since Rob and Kristen split to the wailing laments of millions of Twilight fans, Stewart’s love life (or lack of it) has been put under the microscope.
Since landing a starring role in Equalsalongside Nicholas Hoult, the gossip rags have been abuzz with rumors that Jennifer Lawrence was not happy Kristen was anywhere near her boyfriend (which Lawrence later personally denied).
Life After Twilight: Like her ex-flame, Robert Pattinson, KStew has avoided major blockbusters with the exception of 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman.
During her 4-year stint as Bella Swan, Stewart took on a number of noteworthy roles including portraying the punk rock icon Joan Jet in 2010’s The Runaways and the free-spirited 16-year-old Marylou in 2012’s On the Road.
Stewart has an impressive four films under her belt for 2014 and has been winning glowing praise for her roles. To get your most recent Kristen fix get your mitts on Clouds of Sils Mariawhere Stewart shines as Juliette Binoche’s assistant or be patient for KStew in camo as a Guantanamo Bay Guard in the long awaited Camp X-Ray(release date October 17th 2014).
Other upcoming roles will see Stewart starring alongside Nicholas Hoult in the sci-fi romantic dramaEqualsand reunited with her Adventureland co-star, Jesse Eisenberg in American Ultra(the role responsible for Kristen’s grungy orange hair).
Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black)
Age Then: 16
Age Now: 22 (D.O.B – February 11, 1992)
Personal Life: Lautner’s most high profile romance was short but sweet. The star dated Taylor Swift from October to November 2009 but Swift reportedly ended their love affair because Lautner was more into her than she was into him. Awwwww.
Taylor obviously has a thing for teeny bopper pop icons because he also briefly dated Selena Gomez while he was filming Twilight: New Moon in Vancouver.
As far as we know, Taylor Lautner is currently single.
Life After Twilight: Lautner managed to make it through the entire Twilight filmography, despite the fact that he was meant to be recast in the second instalment due to Jacob’s dramatic transformation in the books.
During his Twilight days, Taylor appeared alongside the likes of Julia Roberts and Bradley Cooper in Valentine’s Day (2010)as loved up teenager Willy Harrington. He also took a turn as the leading man in the 2011 thriller, Abduction.
Other movies featuring Lautner include 2013’s Grown Ups 2 where he plays a frat boy and the upcoming action thriller, Tracers that is due for release this year.
Taylor is currently enjoying a comedic spell across the pond in the British comedy Cuckoo.
Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen)
Age Then: 21
Age Now: 27 (D.O.B – February 21, 1987)
Personal Life: Ashley Greene has been dating Paul Khoury since September 2013. To save your fingers the Wikipedia based trouble, Greene’s other half is an Australian TV personality who is an anchor for numerous poker programs.
So, now you know.
Life After Twilight: During her time in the Twilight franchise, Ashley Greene tentatively dipped her toe into a few different movie genres.
The actress tried her hand at sci-fi in Radio Free Albemuth (2011), tickled funny bones in Butter (2011) and scared us silly with the supernatural horror The Apparition (2012)before her time as Alice Cullen came to a close.
Since then, Greene has taken to the silver screen alongside Miley Cyrus in 2012’s LOL and starred as Lisa Kristal in 2013’spunk rock biopic CBGB.
Greene’s upcoming movies include Burying the Ex, a comedy that has been selected for screening at the Venice International Film Festival.
Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen)
Age Then: 23
Age Now: 29 (D.O.B – March 15, 1985)
Personal Life: Kellan Lutz has had a couple of high profile relationships since his Twilight days.
After single-handedly redefining the sex appeal of the tank-top, Lutz dated his 90210 co-star AnnaLynne McCord between 2008 and 2011.
His most recent relationship was with the Australian actress Sharni Vinson but they split in mid 2013 meaning Lutz is currently a very eligible bachelor.
Life After Twilight: During his Twilight era, Lutz appeared in a few movies such as the 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street and 2011’s modern day gladiator flick Arena alongside Samuel L Jackson.
In recent years, Kellan’s beefy physique has won him roles as Hercules in The Legend of Hercules (2013) and John Smilee is 2014’s The Expendables 3.
Life After Twilight: In the midsts of her Twilight fame, Reed appeared in a few big screen movies to mixed critical acclaim. Her foray into horror as the lead in 2010’s Chain Letter was a box office bomb, but Reed later starred alongside big names such a Bruce Willis in the 2011 action thriller Catch .44.
Reed has gone on to land roles in the upcoming 2014 sports comedy Intramural that opened to positive reviews at Tribeca Film Festival and also, bizarrely appeared in a 2013 music video for the boy band Hanson… Who knew they were still about?!
Jackson Rathbone (Jasper Hale)
Age Then: 22
Age Now: 29 (D.O.B – December 14, 1984)
Personal Life: Jackson Rathbone married his long-term girlfriend, Sheila Hafsad, in September 2013.
The pair have a 2-year-old son together who is named after his father with the stately title of Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI.
Yep, that’s right, Jackson Rathbones real first name is Monroe.
Life After Twilight: Deep within his Twilight years, Jackson Rathbone unfortunately decided to accept a role in the universally panned The Last Airbender (2010).
He has also tried his hand at a little more horror by taking the leading role in the British psychological horror movie, Dread (2009).
As well as generally being a total hottie, you’ll probably recognise Charlie Bewley as Vaughn from The Vampire Diaries and the fairly terrifying Demetri from Twilight. But taking a break from bloodsucking, Charlie’s about to hit screens in new flick Hammer of the Gods, a badass viking style flick that just so happens to involve a lot of blood, sweat and arm muscles.
Being connoisseurs when it comes to admiring the odd arm or two, Sugarscape cornered Charlie for a chat about all things vampire and viking related..
Give us the hard sell for why we should go see Hammer of the Gods.
I just heard someone in an interview describe it as lock, stock and two smoking actors which I really enjoyed! It really is that, it’s not going to bore you with Viking references and all the bloody details, but it’s a lot of fun and it doesn’t take itself too seriously even though there’s this overriding sense of danger to it. Well, there’s a looming danger throughout the whole thing – I don’t know what it is, but it’s awesome!
So why did you decide the Vikings were for you?
I’ve had the chance to work with some great people in the past, and the director himself, Farren Blackburn, was the first port of call on the project and I just got along with him so well. We still get along together well now obviously, and it was his first feature. I got to explore a lot of sides to my acting that I’d never done before, and that was all quite apparent in the script that I got to do all of that, so it was a no brainer really.
A lot of fans know you from the Vampire Diaries and Twilight, so was this a conscious move away from all that bloodsucking?
I don’t think I really needed to consciously move away from it. I think some of the guys at the top of the hierarchy of Twilight might be trying to negotiate that but I really enjoyed my time on Twilight, I still do. Obviously it crops up a lot these days but it was my first role and I think your first movie role is always going to be a point of reference. But I think I’ve got enough range in my ability to not be never to be pigeonholed by it. I’ve played a veteran, I’m playing a Viking and I don’t think it’s going to be a problem.
I’ve got to ask for all of the Vampire Diaries fans out there, will you ever be making a return to the show? Maybe as a ghost?
I think anything’s possible in Mystic Falls! I’d really love to – I had a great time and loved the people. Working in TV is just so different to film. I enjoyed the character, I think he had a lot of potential!
you must have had some experience of fight scenes from Twilight after the mahoosive bit at the end of Breaking Dawn Part 2…
Yeah I got to do some great stunts in that!
Although you didn’t have the best end, with the head…..
You know what, whatever happens in the end, whatever happens in the film itself, what happens during the filming of it is completely different. It was a strange demise, but I was really relieved.
It was amazing how it didn’t get out, how it got kept as a massive secret. Were you worried about accidentally letting the cat out of the bag?
I was a little bit yeah, because it was really well done. I just know how difficult it was to film a fight scene with 50 vampires, 50 backup vampires and a bunch of wolves and humans and stuff, it was a massive group scene. It was an impossible challenge that they managed to pull off!
It looked amazing as well, the whole cinema was SO SHOCKED. We’re kind of still not over it.
I remember at the premiere, people were literally in tears, like ‘Carlisle, NO!’ Like freaking out. I remember reading the script for the first time and being like ‘Wow, WOW that’s so smart! That’s really going to play with the fans.’
Amazing. It must feel a bit weird now Twilight’s all over?
Yeah it does, I was involved, although it’s different for me because it never consumed my life. So it’s been quite a gradual leaving process, it was a part of me, and I loved every moment, but it’s also nice to move on and get the chance to work on other projects too. I still see people from time to time and that’s nice, because the cast and crew really were like one big family after spending all that time together over the years.
