Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson starring in the Twilight movies created a fan following that will last for generations to come. Ever since the news of a new Twilight movie has surfaced online, fans of the vampire-human love saga are waiting for some positive news. The new report suggests that the pre-production of the film is postponed for now, as Pattinson is busy with FKA Twigs’ new dancing project.
Tahliah, known by her stage name FKA Twigs, talked about her Baltimore Dance Project on July 18. Earlier this week, the “Two Weeks” singer along with Nick Walker and WeTransfer released a documentary on the Baltimore Dance Project.
“I’m a dancer. What am I going to do? I am not going to dance by myself or stand there watching. I want to dance with people and I learned from dancers that were there that day,” FKA Twigs said in the released documentary.
Aussie Network News speculated that since the singer and Pattinson are engaged, there is a possibility of the star to participate in the documentary and that’s the reason why he cannot act in the new Twilight movie.
The first part in the Twilight movie series was released back in 2008 and grossed more than $393 million at the box office. The remaining sequels also won the box office by earning more than $1 billion in total. So, the possibility of a new Twilight-related movie is a good sign for the studios. However, Lionsgate’s co-chairman Patrick Wachsberger, made it clear that the studio will only green light the project if Stephenie Meyer will come up with a story for the characters which she has already created.
But Meyer cleared the speculations by simply stating that she is done writing about Twilight characters, and now wants to focus more on different stories.
“Three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died. I’m interested in spending time in other worlds, like Middle-earth. I get further away [from Twilight] every day,” Meyer stated during her interview with Variety. “For me, it’s not a happy place to be.”
As for now, nothing has been officially confirmed by anyone. But if Meyer will come up with a story and Lionsgate will adapt it for the big screen, many Twilight fans will wonder the possibility of Kristen and Robert’s reunion.
In her earlier interview with Uproxx, the Personal Shopper actress talked about a Twilight reunion. According to Stewart, she has moved on in her personal life and the past does not affect her that much and she is completely fine in starring a new film.
That being said, the actress also made it clear that the new possible project should not affect her personal life.
“Even though after the first one, which stood alone, it lasted a long time. It’s hard to speak to a five-year period in a few sentences, but I loved doing it. But that doesn’t mean I want to keep doing it. But if other people wanted to? Yeah, sure. To be honest with you, I would be interested. I’d be kind of fascinated, but it wouldn’t emotionally affect me one way or the other.”
Meanwhile, Robert has also talked about him featuring as Edward Cullen in a new Twilight movie. According to the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire star, he is done starring in the human-vampire love saga. Pattinson also stated that he wants to do experiments with the roles and does not wish to be labeled as an actor who can portray only one character.
“I think my name on a poster rallies my fan base. I hope to awake their curiosity and show them a different vision of cinema. Don’t forget that they grow up too. And they didn’t want to see all their lives Robert Pattinson playing a vampire. We tend to devalue the fans. It’s a mistake. The fan is an audience member like the others,” he said during his interview with Elle France.
Although these experiments of Pattinson are not working too well for him. After wrapping the Twilight saga, he featured in plenty of films like Maps to the Stars, Queen of the Desert and Life. Few of his films did good at the box office and amazed the critics, but none of the films came close to Twilight.
A source close to the star revealed to Hollywood Life that if the studio will approach Robert then he will accept the role of Edward Cullen in a heartbeat.
“[Robert Pattinson] is more likely to come back if they make more Twilight films because he thinks it would re-spark his career.”
