Summit Buys Breaking Dawn Film Rights

Nov 13th, 2008 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Summit Entertainment has bought the film rights to ALL of the books, including Breaking Dawn!  Click here to read more (mild spoilers if you haven’t read all 4 books!)

“With Summit Entertainment preparing to release its big bet “Twilight,” the studio is moving potential future installments in the franchise into the development pipeline.

The company has acquired rights to the next three novels in Stephenie Meyer’s blockbuster vampire series and has hired “Twilight” scribe Melissa Rosenberg to pen scripts based on “New Moon” and “Eclipse,” the second and third books, respectively.”

This, added to what Rob said in an interview yesterday, is great news!

  7. Kate says:

    I am so excited. Is anyone else wondering though how they will be able to make Taylor grow in height? I know with Alice she was supposed to be 4′ 10″ but they disregarded that fact and Ashley is the perfect Alice. (Truth be told I always increased her height in my head anyway).

    I have to say I give brownie points to the Hollywood Reporter for not twisting the words of the stars to make them sound evil and unappreciative of their fans. I was over at RopeofSilicon and read an article where they are taking about Summit obtaining the rights to all remaining books. Unfortunately, they spent one line talking about Summit acquiring the rights and the rest of the article spent bashing Rob and Kristen who they claim hate their fans and need to be brough down a notch or two. Which anyone who has seen Rob or even talked to him I doubt would ever say that he has let fame change him. He seems really down to earth and very appreciative of his fans.
