‘Twilight’ is back!? New movie coming in 2015
It’s been two years since the final chapter in the ‘Twilight’ Saga was released in cinemas- Just a mere glimpse in vampire years, but what seems like an eternity for us mortals!
Now, our lives have regained meaning as Stephenie Meyer and Lionsgate announced that five mini-movies centred on characters of the ‘Twilight’ universe will premiere on Facebook in 2015.
Are we joking? You ask. Would we joke about a matter this important? NO!
The movies will be directed by five aspiring female directors, mentored by some of Hollywood’s most powerful women: Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer, ‘Modern Family’ actress Julie Bowen, first ‘Twilight’ movie director Catherine Hardwicke, Women In Film President Cathy Schulman, ‘Frozen’ director Jennifer Lee along with Stephenie Meyer and last but most certainly not least, Kristen Stewart herself.
OMG, Who’s dying? Well, all the Twihards are:
twilight is back and i am dead

The star-studded female line up has been planned out by Meyer as she told the Times: “The female voice is something that has become more and more important to me as I’ve worked in the film industry.”
Michael Burns of Lionsgate explains why Facebook is coming on board: “We think Facebook is a great way for us to introduce the world of ‘Twilight’ to a whole new audience while re-energizing existing fans.” It doesn’t look like ‘Twilight’ is going away... Ever!
