Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are gearing up to star in a new Twilight movie.
Patrick Wachsberger, co-chairman of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, recently talked about how the studio hired Robert Pattinson to play the role of Edward Cullen in the Twilight saga and how there is a possibility of a new Twilight-kind of movie.
Mr. Wachsberger recently spoke to Screen and stated how Twilight was a game changer for everyone involved in the project.
“Robert Pattinson only came in three weeks before shoot,” says Wachsberger. “An assistant, who has subsequently become a very successful executive, said, ‘There’s this guy called Rob Pattinson from the fourth Harry Potter…’ I said, ‘Well, let’s fly him in from London.'”
Mr. Wachsberger further stated that Pattinson got a very little salary for the first part, but his lawyers renegotiated the payment after the enormous success of the first vampire-human romantic film in the series.
When it was asked about the possibility of a new Twilight movie, Mr. Wachsberger stated that it is a possibility that they come up with a new film, but he also pressured on the fact that at the end of the day, it is Stephenie Meyer’s story and it’s all up to her.
“Not a certainty but it’s a possibility. It’s about Stephenie [novelist Stephenie Meyer]. If she wants to tell a story related to those characters we’re here for her.”
Earlier to this, there were many speculations and rumors that the star couple might finally get back together on big screen. According to earlier reports via Gossip Cop, an alleged source close to the couple has claimed that since they did not get any success in their individual films, the former couple is thinking to get back together to save their failing careers.
“Both have had little to no career success since they split. Now agents for both of them are looking for a project for them to star in together.”
However, Gossip Cop debunked these claims and stated the possibility of their reunion on the big screen is very slim.
But this recently stated statement from Lionsgate’s co-chairman indicates that there is a possibility of a new film featuring these two celebrated stars.
Many can wonder if Kristen and Robert would like to share the screen again after she was caught cheating on him with Rupert Sanders.
In the past, Pattinson was asked about his involvement in future Twilight movies with his ex-girlfriend. The actor told Elle France via Hollywood Life that while he would be open to the new project, he does not want to add fuel to all the ongoing speculations.
“Why not? We’ll have to see. I preferred not to broach the subject,” he further stated.
Just like Pattinson, even Stewart is open to the possibility of another Twilight movie. According to Uproxx, when it was asked to her about her interest in a new film that will feature her ex-lover, the Personal Shopper actress stated that she is open to all the ideas, but the reunion or the possible film should not affect her personal life in any way.
“I was so genuinely, heavily entrenched in that, and not in a way that felt like an obligation. 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.”
As of now, there is no official confirmation on this. But based on the fan following of these stars and the movie, it would be interesting to see if, in future, they ever materialize this vision.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s representatives are yet to comment on this, but do you think that after their split, they would like to star together in a new Twilight? Sound off your opinion in the comments below.
