From The Guardian
It is a quandary faced by studio executives over the years: what to do with a successful movie franchise that has run out of books to adapt. But this may not be an obstacle for the Twilight films, after Lionsgate chief executive Jon Feltheimer suggested his company may continue the series beyond the November release of Breaking Dawn Part 2, supposedly the final instalment in the vampire romance saga.
Lionsgate bought Twilight studio Summit for more than $400m on Friday, and one of Feltheimer’s first proclamations was to suggest his company wants to maximise profits from its newly acquired asset. The Twilght series has so far generated almost $2.5bn at the global box office.
“I’m anticipating Breaking Dawn Part 2 being $700m-plus in worldwide box office,” Feltheimer told the LA Times. Asked if he would like to see the series continue, he said: “It’s hard for me to imagine a movie that does $700m-plus doesn’t have ongoing value. It’s an amazing franchise that they have done a great job of maintaining with absolutely no deterioration. So the simple answer is: ‘Boy I hope so.’“
