ZOMG, Kristen Stewart’s Gonna Be a Part of NEW Twilight Movies!
No. Freaking. Way. Just when you thought the world of Twilight movies was over and done with, news of a bunch of revivals hits the Internet, springing your Edward Cullen-loving selves back to life.
According to The New York Times, Lionsgate and author Stephenie Meyer plan to select five aspiring female directors to make short films based on the characters from the vampire- and werewolf-driven saga, which will be shown exclusively on Facebook in 2015. Lionsgate Vice Chairman Michael Burns explains, “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.”
Oh yeah, and Kristen Stewart‘s going to be a part of the action! Though she is unlikely to appear in any of the movies (or any of the original cast for that matter), she is said to be a part of the vetting process, joining a panel of other females, including Stephenie, Kate Winslet (Titanic, Divergent), Octavia Spencer (The Help), Julie Bowen (Modern Family), Catherine Hardwicke (the director of the first Twilight flick), film producer Cathy Schulman and co-director of Frozen Jennifer Lee.
Stephenie adds, “The female voice is something that has become more and more important to me as I’ve worked in the film industry,” thus explaining her inclusion in the project.
