Summit Acquires Twilight Sequels

Summit gets Twilight sequel rightsThough it shouldn’t be surprising in the least, THR reports this morning that Summit Entertainment has officially snatched up the rights to Stephenie Meyer’s three Twilight sequels: “>New Moon (review), “>Eclipse (review) and Breaking Dawn.

Melissa Rosenberg, who wrote the “>Twilight screenplay, has been brought on board to pen the first two sequels, but no writer has been attached to Breaking Dawn as of yet.

Now Summit just has to hope the film does well when it opens next Friday (get your tickets here!), but more importantly that it’s actually a good movie with some legs so all those freaky, screaming fans out there will only want more. We’ll keep you updated on the sequels, even if it’s the last thing we want to do. That’s just how we roll.

    If he’s really done all the things you mention he’s in for some serious lawsuits. If you’re even tangentially involved in the making of any movie with a budget you have to sign contracts that forbid you to say anything negative about it for the next couple decades. That’s why I stopped reading pre-release interviews or listening to commentaries that weren’t done more than 20 years after the release of the film.

    The best thing to come out of this Twilight crap are the comments made by the guy whose playing the hero vamp in the movie. He hates the character he’s playing, he apparently gave a copy of the book to a friend as a joke and basically says the whole thing reads disturbingly like some kind of wish-fulfilment fantasy of the author’s.
