From the NYT:
Two years after Lions Gate released the fifth and supposedly final installment of its “Twilight” movie series, the studio has devised an unusual franchise-rekindling effort — and it may hold clues about Facebook’s future in Hollywood.
Lions Gate and Stephenie Meyer, the creator of the vampires-and-werewolves “Twilight” saga, on Tuesday announced plans to select five aspiring female directors to make short films based on “Twilight” characters. The mini-movies, financed by Lions Gate and its production partners, will be shown exclusively on Facebook next year.
While I have no doubt that this news will result in yet another snorefest of Twilight-bashing, HOPEFULLY, there will be some who focus on the "FIVE ASPIRING FEMALE DIRECTORS" thing.
