It sounds like a cruel April Fool’s Day joke for hardcore Twilight haters across the globe. But it’s true. Stephenie Meyer, creator of the novel series which the popular films are based on, has hinted that she is writing a new Twilight spin-off series that will focus on Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) and his relationship with Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy), the daughter of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), whom Jacob ‘imprints’ upon at the time of birth, marking the newborn as his life mate (or life protector, however you want to look at it).
This new novel series will be written with the intent to turn it into a movie.
When Stephenie Meyer was recently asked about the ageing process between the two characters of Jacob and Renesmee, whose story will unfold in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, the author had this to say.
“That is a question I’m reserving the right not to answer, because there is a chance I’ll go back to their story.”
This spin-off is in place, because Stephenie Meyer doesn’t feel there is anything left to say with Bella and Edward.
“(Their) story’s already been told, and I doubt I’ll ever write another series based on (those) same characters.”
The Jacob/Renesmee spin-off won’t happen for a while, as Stephenie Meyer is currently working on a Young Adult science fiction story. It is possible that enough time will pass between The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 and this potential new franchise that Mackenzie Foy will be old enough to act against Taylor Lautner in a romantic relationship. And who knows, the teen heartthrob may be in need of a career boost at that time.
Twilight was released November 21st, 2008 and stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Billy Burke, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Cam Gigandet, Ashley Greene, Christian Serratos. The film is directed by Catherine Hardwicke.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 comes to theatres November 16th, 2012 and stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene, Anna Kendrick, Jackson Rathbone, Nikki Reed, Peter Facinelli. The film is directed by Bill Condon.
