‘Twilight,’ ‘Hunger Games’ spin-offs a possibility, Lionsgate confirms
Adapting popular novels into big-screen franchises continues to be the trend in Hollywood, and Suzanne Collins’ “Hunger Games” and Stephanie Meyer’s “Twilight” sagas are just some of the most recognizable titles.
Although the two have wrapped up their storylines—both in the books and the movies—Lionsgate Entertainment shared the possibility of fresh installments and spin-offs in the near future.
According to the network’s CEO Jon Feltheimer, Lionsgate will start developing new material based on both franchises’ rich history, if both high-profile authors give them the heads up.
“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,” he was quoted as saying in a Wall Street Journal report.
Although Feltheimer is not promising that series favorites Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) will make appearances in future films, he hinted at coming up with quality films if all parties would “get in a room together.”
“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,” he said. Khristian Ibarrola /ra
