We all remember what we felt when we read about Bella Swan first laying eyes on Edward Cullen. Stephenie Meyer allowed our imaginations to run wild with excitement. In 2008, the Twilight Saga was made into 5 movies with the last movie Breaking Dawn: Part 2 being released in theaters later this year. Since 2008/2009, the passionate fans of the books and films have been taken on a wild ride in regards to whether or not Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are a couple in reel life. (oops sorry, I meant real).
Summit, the company which produced the films has recently been purchased by Lionsgate. Lionsgate may be planning to bring Twilight to the small screen, our television sets. Why won’t anyone let this franchise die down? In my opinion, the franchise has already been beaten to death. There are only so many things one can do with the books that hasn’t already been done. I think its way to early to recast the films and start over. Also, how would the series be marketed? Is Lionsgate going to shove T.V. Edward and Bella down our throats too with the romance games? Its ridiculous. There is no way that Robert Pattinson could play Edward Cullen any longer. He’s moved on and has done an outstanding job with the material and cast he’s worked with. The same applies for the rest of the cast.
Twilight is like walking in to a candy store although the proprietor of the candy store won’t let you leave until every last piece of candy has been shoved into your mouth and you’re forced to swallow it. One would end up with a massive stomach and tooth ache.
What are your thoughts on the possible television series? Who would you want to see play television Edward and Bella? Although, Lionsgate should keep this in mind, less is always more.
