Twilight TV Series Officially In Works By Lionsgate: Potential Cast
More than ten years after the Twilight movie franchise concluded, Stephenie Meyer confirmed that she has more novels that she’s currently working on. Whether or not we get to see these books as Twilight spin-offs, we still don’t know. However, Lionsgate is officially working on the Twilight TV series! Here is the casting as per fans’ wishes.
Stephenie Meyer’s Franchise Getting a Reboot
Just weeks after the official announcement about the Harry Potter TV Series, fans are getting a Twilight TV series as well! Stephenie Meyer’s novels came out from 2005 to 2008, while the movie franchise released sequels from 2008 to 2012. Now, 10+ years later, we are getting a TV reboot.
The project is still in the early stages of development. Therefore, we have very little information about it! However, we do know that Lionsgate Television picked the project. Moreover, Sinead Daly will work on the script for the Twilight TV series. Some of her significant work includes The Get Down, The Walking Dead: World Beyond, and Raised by Wolves.
According to some unconfirmed sources, Stephenie Meyer will also have some say in the development process. Wyck Godfrey and Erik Feig will assist her as executive producers.
Apart from this series, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer gave us hints years ago in an interview about the possible TV series. “There are a lot more stories to be told, and we’re ready to tell them when our creators are ready to tell those stories,” he said. He also mentioned the possibility of picking up a Hunger Games spin-off.
Twilight TV Series Casting by Fans
While we don’t have a lot of information about the Twilight TV series, fans already created the perfect cast. Hopefully, Lionsagate will take notes! Therefore, let’s start with the main two characters.
These are Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. Fans chose either Talia Ryder or Shailene Woodley to portray Bella. Similarly, two popular actors Hero Fiennes Tiffin (After) and Brandon Flynn (13 Reasons Why) would be great for the role of Edward Cullen.
Now, we know that the Cullen Family is very big. Carlisle, the caretaker in the family, can be portrayed by actors such as Charlie Hunnam and Jacob Elordi. In addition, the Cullen family also includes Emmet, Jasper, and so on.
Therefore, Daniel Sharman, Neels Visser, or Jamie Campbell-Bower can portray Jasper. Dacre Montgomery (Stranger Things) perfectly resembles Emmett. Other important characters in the Twilight TV series are Billy Black, Charlie Swan, and, of course, Jacob Black.
Victor Hugo (Victor Hugo De Oliveira Mauricio) would be a great Jacob. Moreover, parents Billy and Charlie can be portrayed by Adam Beach and David Harbour! Lastly, let’s not forget the enemies. Katherine McNamara can portray the redhead baddie Victoria, and Jenna Ortega can be Jane (the Volturi).
How do you think we did with the casting? Will Lionsgate be happy with this? Let us know if you have any casting suggestions!
