Could The Twilight Saga tap into a little of what the X-Men franchise is cookin'? That's what it might look like depending on how well the four movies (based on Stephenie Meyer's books) do in theaters. According to Twilight producers – who spoke to RadarOnline recently at the 36th annual Vision Awards – they may look to spin-off the franchise should the next three films do the kind of big box office business that the first movie produced.
Sure, we're still a couple years away from Breaking Dawn hitting theaters – and by then the Twilight phenomenon may have dried up. But if it doesn't, and folks are still itchy with Twilight fever, then look for producers to try to find a way to keep the franchise going on the big screen. Early rumors suggest that new films could revolve around the Volturi family of vampires, who will be featured prominently in New Moon (due out October 21). Among those Volturi members making their Twilight debut are Michael Sheen and Dakota Fanning, both of which could easily branch out into a possible solo effort.
The problem with spinning off the franchise, though, is that this may happen without Stephenie Meyer. And if it does, how would fans feel about that? What if there was a Twilight film that wasn't based on one of her books? Could you, as a hardcore fan, handle that – or would you insist that any Twilight film must first be based on a novel written by Meyer?
