I always joke around that this next Twilight movie Breaking Dawn Part 2 would be the last movie until Lionsgate decides to reboot the franchise. Apparently there are sites reporting that the studio is already planning on doing just that. Lionsgate/Summit executive Rob Friedman reached out to Deadline to set the record straight, saying,
We are not remaking Twilight. We will happily support Stephanie Meyer if she decides to proceed in any way. But this will be the last one unless that should change.
I love how he says this will be the last one... unless that should change. I don't know about you, but that basically tells me that they are definitely leaving the door open for a reboot. The site says that the studio will do whatever the Twilight author wants, and she's already said in a few interviews that she wouldn't mind seeing a reboot. And of course if Meyer writes any more books, we can expect those to be turned into movies as well.
As of right now though, there are no plans being made for a reboot, but it will most likely eventually happen. This is the studio's biggest franchise, and rebooting it would only make them even more money. So we have that not to look forward too.
