The Twilight Saga novel and film series became a major landmark for the genres of fantasy and romance. The film series, which starred Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, earned $3.3 billion. The author of the series, Stephanie Meyer, however, is not done with Twilight yet. In 2020, Meyer released Midnight Sun, which tells the story of the first Twilight book and Edward Cullen’s point of view.
Meyer began writing the novel during the first Twilight movie and even showed Pattinson some chapters to better feel Edward’s character. Midnight Sun-like previous instalments became a massive success, selling a million copies in its first week of release.
Is The book being Adapted?
Given the success and popularity of the Twilight series, many film pundits believed that the book could be adapted. Edward Cullen’s character doesn’t have much of a background, and not much is known about his past, which could be a point of interest for many. Unfortunately for the Twilight fans, there are currently no plans to adapt the novel. Robert Pattinson also once revealed that he was done portraying Edward Cullen as he wanted to try other film roles for different genres.
Today, Pattinson is massively successful, showing his range in many films like Good Time, The Devil All the Time, The King and Tenet. He is currently busy shooting The Batman with director Matt Reeves. Also, both Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are too old now to play teenage vampires again. There are chances that the studio could consider rebooting the series.
Apart from Midnight Sun, Meyer wrote a reimagining of Twilight titled Life and Death, where Edward and Bella are gender-swapped and renamed Edythe and Beau. This novel could serve as the beginning of a different Twilight film series and go in a whole new and different direction. There are many chances for a new Twilight movie to get made as there is huge interest in the franchise. Plus, reboots and sequels have been a successful formula in Hollywood for the past many years.
Who is in the Cast? When is the Twilight Midnight Sun Movie Release Date?
Since the film is not in production yet, there is no casting happening yet. The film also doesn’t have a release date yet. There is no update on Twilight Midnight Sun movie release date.
The Twilight Saga so Far –
The series began in 2008 with the release of Twilight, which follows Bella falling in love with a vampire, Edward. In the second part, New Moon, Edward decides to stay with Bella and departs with his family, leaving her depressed. She later meets Jacob Black, a werewolf. In the third film, Eclipse, Bella accepts Edward’s proposal to marry him and faces danger from a clan of evil vampires. In the final two films, Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Part 2, Bella marries Edward, and they have a daughter, Renesmee, who is half-human and half-vampire.
They join forces with the werewolves and other vampire families to protect Renesmee from The Volturi.
