GUYS ARE YOU SITTING DOWN?
Good, because we got some GREAT news for you. That is, if you're a Twilight or Hunger Games fan.
Because - entertainment company Lionsgate are officially on board with doing new Twilight AND Hunger Games movies!
Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer revealed to Variety that the company is ready to work on new projects in both massively popular franchises. Which is great news if you love either blockbuster series (or both, like us).
But there's a catch.
There are a lot more stories to be told, and we’re ready to tell them when our creators are ready to tell those stories.
Key part of the quote - "when our creators are ready to tell those stories."
So future movies will only go ahead IF they get the green light from authors Stephanie Meyer (Twilight) Suzanne Collins (Hunger Games). So who knows how long that could be.
But Felty seemed confident it would happen:
If it were possible for us all to get in a room together and have exhibitors and studios and digital distributors all get in a room together, I’ve seen enough research to really believe that it’s really something that would be good for everybody. I think that will happen.
Considering both franchises are literally like printing cash - Twilight has grossed over $3.3 billion at the box office, with Hunger Games raking in a cool $2.9 billion - we are pretty sure both authors will sign off for more films.
But you tell us - are you excited for new Twilight and Hunger Games films, or could you not care less?
