Possible Twilight TV????

From Straightstimes.com:

LOS ANGELES - BRITISH actor and star of the Twilight film franchise is reportedly in talks with Summit Entertainment regarding a TV spin-off, according to Contactmusic magazine.

The actor, who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the films, could earn almost S$2.03 million per episode if the Twilight story moves over to the small screen, reported entertainment media on Wednesday.

According to a report in the Daily Telegraph newspaper, producers want to maximise the films' popularity by launching the television series next year after the release of the third movie in the franchise, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, in June next year.

The recently released New Moon, the second in the series, has grossed more than S$319 million in 10 days since its premiere in the US.

What are your thoughts? Do you want Twilight to be a TV series??

noo!!!!
I think tht the only reason why tht is even being thought of is because the producers are all money hungry but they can't just change this into a tv show when fans love the books and the MOVIES tht just wouldn't work and i really hope it doesn't happen

I agree, NO. I am a huge Crow fan as well, and the TV just ruined the whole story!

no way...

i think that if you'd tried to addept twilight to make it a tvshow you ruin the whole story. don't do that!
This story was meant as a bookseries and that is was made into a movie was even more fabulous. this story just isn't right for a tv-show.

DONT DO THAT!!!!

No way!!!! That would 100% ruin the series and the characters. Stick with the books and the movies. Rob Pattinson is rich enough.

i mean, who doesnt want to see robert pattinson on a tv show?! get to see him play edward evewry week?! and they could extend the story of renesmee and bella being a vampire!
but then, i dont want them to ruin it either...

I agree with Anonymous #4. I would loove to find out more about Bella's adaptation to her new vampire life as well as what it's like to be half human and half vampire. However, I really don't want that magic that captured all of us to loose its spark. THis one's a toughee...

I think it would be really, really terrible....probably last like a season and a half and be a complete embarrassment.

NO. it would just be like twilight the movie but separated into parts. :( i dont like the idea

alexxx said...

i don't like the idea.
buyt how are they going to do renesmee in the films - shes meant to get older by the day!
it'll be very hard for the film but they SHOULDN'T do a tv series, it just doesn't seem twilighty.

Heck no!it would totally screw-up the whole saga!UGH!A Very bad idea!

wow so many objections... well i'll be first to vote YES! The original series will always remain special but I'm definitely open to something different.. I think a spin off TV series is a great idea! U'd be surprised how scriptwriters can make it interesting.. and more of edward, bella and jacob definitely wouldnt hurt xD

No nononononononooooo, please do do it Robert, it will cheapen the series up.

Maybe if they have totally different actors, but if its not going to be the entire main cast, it would just be sick and wrong and low end
