Variety sends out these little blurbs to my phone when something interesting happens. Most of the time it is yawn inducing stuff or so hard to translate their Ted Casablanca speak while I'm drinking that I just give up and hit delete. Yesterday I got one that said Lions Gate bought Summit. The first thing that came to my head was they wanted the Twilight library. It turns out they want way more. Lions Gate said they are not finished making Twilight movies. There is that little problem of having no more books to adapt. Oh, and none of the original cast signed for any more of the movies. Honestly, I think it might be tough to get Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart back. The rest of the cast? Throw some money their way and they will come back. It is possible that with new writers and not confined to the no action and Harlequin romance style of the first 5 installments that the movies could bring in a whole new audience. Or they could turn into American Pie 6-13.

The other idea is to bring Twilight to television. I think that is way too much overkill. There are so many vampire and supernatural shows on television, including a show called Supernatural.
