You didn't throw away your "Team Edward" shirt or retire your Katniss Everdeen-inspired side braid yet, did you? GOOD.
Because Lionsgate thinks there's more to the Twilight and Hunger Games stories (and because the 2017 reboot trend will 👏 never 👏 die 👏), the production company is thinking about revisiting BOTH franchises sometime in the near future, according to Variety.
“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,” Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer told analysts during a quarterly earnings call Tuesday.
Feltheimer won't let these projects steam ahead without the approval of Hunger Games creator Suzanne Collins and Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, which is both a blessing and a curse for fans: While any future sequels/spin-offs would probably be more authentic if they were influenced by their original architects, there's a chance Meyer and Collins may take a while to approve them — if at all.
Another *minor* hang-up: Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattison, and other big-name actors who used to be involved in said franchises are pretty busy with other projects nowadays.
Fortunately, Feltheimer seems pretty confident that he can pull these things off, telling analysts that he just needs to get all parties "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. “I think that will happen. I think it would be great for the business.”
Don't worry, Jon — you only have the fate of Forks, Washington, and the entire nation of Panem resting on your shoulders. No pressure!
