When Summit entertainment was bought by Lionsgate Films, rumors swirled that the Twilight franchise may not be coming to an end after all. Summit, the production company that released the series previously stated that this November's 'Breaking Dawn: Part II' would be the final installment of the worldwide franchise. Yet when the company was purchased, Lionsgate co-chair Rob Friedman told reporters that it was up to author Stephenie Meyer. He stated:
If she wishes to do it, we'll be there to support her.
The statement gave fans everywhere hope that the more 'Twilight' films were on the way. Yet Reuters reports that Robert Pattinson feels very differently on the matter. During an interview at the Berlin Film Festival Pattinson maintained that at 25-years old, he is no longer believable as a 17-year-old vampire.
I'd be curious what Stephenie would write, but I just think I'd probably be too old. I'm already too old.
Since the films have banked a monstrous $2.5 billion at the international box office thus far, it can only be assumed that Hollywood will find a way to prolong the Twilight craze.
