Summit to reboot TWILIGHT, remake HURT LOCKER

Twilight-410-large

Announced early this morning, Summit Entertainment has decided to steal a page out of Sony’s book and remake their successful Twilight Saga, with production slated to begin immediately after Eclipse sees release. Plans to make Breaking Dawn have been scrapped, according to the following quote from a Summit VP:

“We feel that the series should appeal to a newer generation. We’re pleased that the Twilight saga has reached a number of fans, but we want to expand on that fanbase by putting Bella and Edward in middle school. We also would like to make a grittier, more contemporary take on vampires.”

Also announced were plans for Summit to remake Kathryn Bigelow’s epic The Hurt Locker, slated for release in summer 2011. According to the studio, they want a more action-packed, less character driven film. The hope is that Jerry Bruckheimer will produce and directors being tossed around currently are Michael Bay, Brett Ratner, and Mark L. Lester. None of the directors or Bruckheimer could be reached for comment.

In this day and age, this doesn’t surprise me. I mean, I guess studios are going to feel the need to reboot every two years even if the fanbase responds well to their films. Just because a series has one terrible picture doesn’t mean there needs to be a complete overhaul. Clearly not enough time has passed where the first films are nostalgia and no longer fresh. Oh well, looks like we’re entering a dark time for Hollywood.

  2. Are you kidding me? BD scrapped. What fkn planet do you live on? They already confirmed the making of BD you putz!

    And Middle School?? LMAO can't wait for Gossip Cop to get a hold of this one. I hope he tears you a new one

    have a nice day

  3. While I would LOVE to see Twilight redone (it was terrible, awful, atrocious, I could go on), this whole story is complete bull and entirely laughable. Middle school! ha! what a joke. I loved New Moon, so why can't the rest of the films have that flavor and feel to it! And Breaking Dawn is still in the works … according to Meyer and Summitt themselves….CHECK YOUR FACTS, reelloop…you are as bad as the National Enquirer

  4. hahaha! Look at all the POed twilight fans =)) C'mon people – read!

    A reboot of Avatar whilst still in theaters… sounds good! :)

  5. At first, i kept thinking that, "What is it with this twilight stuff everybody's going buts over?" I saw it. Clearly, there are a few lackings and one of those is….that in the Twilight films, THE VAMPS DON'T HAVE FANGS AND THAT DRIVES ME MAD! Vampires are suppose to have fangs and as for them sparkling in the sunlight….what in the world is that about?!
    OK, SERIOUSLY, THEY SHOULD DO A REMAKE!!!!!!! Not only they should remake it but, they should make it darker, able to see some blood lust and to see that when Edward vamps out, he would have FANGS!, but perhaps sexier and scarier and much better storyline and plot and would somehow find a way to open doors for an EVEN WIDER AUDIENCE, NOT JUST TEENS BUT FOR ADULTS AS WELL! IT WOULD BE COOL IF THEY WOULD PAY SOME HOMAGE TO FOREVER NIGHT AND SUBSPECIES.

    And For Jacob, for a remake, him and the rest of his pack and everyone else like him would not turn into an over-sized wolf when he's angry – NO, thats not a werewolf, that just a mere shape shifter, nothing in between!!! Theres a reason werewolves are called "werewolves". In a remake, he should become a huge huge, snarling, man-eating, rampaging beast, that can walk on two legs and that that are in between forms and yet…MORE – like in the new Wolfman movie, THE WAY IT SHOULD BE.
