This is HUGE news for fans of both the Twilight films and books – there will be new short films created around characters from the series!
Lions Gate just announced that they will be selecting five aspiring female directors to direct the new mini-movies, which will be shown exclusively on Facebook next year. The films will be about characters from the series, but will not feature any original cast members.
“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,” Lions Gate vice chairman Michael Burns told The New York Times. “This is the just the beginning—a template, if you will. You can probably guess what might be coming next.”
A panel of women in the entertainment industry will be selecting the female directors. The panelists include Kristen Stewart, author Stephenie Meyer, Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer, Julie Bowen, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, film producer Cathy Schulman, and Frozen director Jennifer Lee.
“The female voice is something that has become more and more important to me as I’ve worked in the film industry,” Stephenie said in a statement.

The two couples seemed to be having a blast while standing on opposite sides of the table and enjoying drinks together. Looks like Joe had a funny story to tell at this moment!
Joe and Sofia were spotted continuing their romantic weekend together the next day getting their fitness on at a local park in Savannah. They later changed into some nicer clothes to head out for dinner together.
Make sure to see the photos of Channing and Joe filming a scene by the pool a couple days later!
