Good news for Twihards! It has been two years since the fifth and last installment of the Twilight Saga hit the big screen. The Twilight fans have been really upset as their favourite on-screen pair Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will not delight them anymore.
Well, it is time to cheer up as Twihards will get to see the reunion of favorite vampires and werewolves but on a smaller screen.
According to The New York Times, Lions Gate and author Stephenie Meyer announced today that they have plans to select five aspiring female directors to make short films based on Twilight characters. And guess what, Kristen Stewart will be a part of the panel for selecting the aspiring female directors. The panelists also include Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer, Julie Bowen, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, film producer Cathy Schulman and 'Frozen' director Jennifer Lee.
The mini-movies, financed by Lions Gate will be shown exclusively on social networking site, Facebook. "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," Michael Burns, Lions Gate's vice chairman, said in an interview.
Now the savviest studio marketers are using Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube and other online platforms to keep their fans engaged.
"This is the just the beginning - a template, if you will," Mr. Burns added. "You can probably guess what might be coming next." So is Hunger Games the next in their mind?
