Films Compete to Become the Next 'Twilight'

Now that we're nearing the halfway point in the Twilight series, it's time to start pondering which film(s) will become "The Next Twilight." Hell if I know at this moment in time, but it's no secret that studios are sucking up any piece of literature that contains a teenage love story and either vampires, werewolves or both. Not only that, but they're also game for turning existing classic literary stories into films with a Twilight spin.

Amanda Seyfried and Kristen Stewart

Take, for example, Wuthering Heights. Since it's well known that this is Bella's favorite book, did you think Hollywood producers would really let that small nugget of knowledge slip through their greasy little fingers? Nope. So, now, Deadline Hollywood reports that a new version of Wuthering Heights will ramp up for the big screen, and instead of it being a straight adaptation, producers will look to reboot it with a sort of Twilight vibe, focusing on a forbidden teenage love angle with a cast of hot, up-and-coming unknowns…and maybe they'll throw in a vampire – what the hey, right?
 
Meanwhile, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke is returning to another gothic tale and apparently she's taking Amanda Seyfried with her, who the LA Times claims may be the next Kristen Stewart (though the two couldn't be any more different, and since Seyfried has starred in bigger films than Stewart, perhaps it should be the other way around).
 
Titled The Girl with the Red Riding Hood, the film is a new modern re-telling of the classic Red Riding Hood fairytale, but with some dark, dangerous, romantic elements thrown in to spice it up and make it appeal to Twilight fans. More wolf-on-pretty-girl love? We do not know, but we're eager to find out.
 
Do you think either of these projects will turn into the next Twilight? Which one are you looking forward to most?
