Taylor Lautner Interested in More Twilight Movies

According to Digital Spy, actor Taylor Lautner would be interested in making more Twilight movies if author Stephenie Meyer (pictured, via) writes a spin-off starring werewolf Jacob Black and vampire-human hybrid Renesmee Cullen.

USA Today reported that Meyer shared a lot of secrets with ten fans on the film set of Breaking Dawn Part 1. When asked about whether or not Jacob could father children with Renesmee, she responded: “That is a question I’m reserving the right not to answer, because there is a chance I’ll go back to their story.”

Meyer also talked about several projects for the future, including: a fantasy story, a sequel for The Host, a 1,000-page novel about mermaids, and finishing Midnight Sun (the first Twilight book written from Edward Cullen‘s perspective).

Warning–the final paragraph of this post contains Twilight spoilers.

Susanna White Will Adapt Stephenie Meyer’s The Host

Susanna White (the director of Nanny McPhee Returns) will adapt Stephenie Meyer‘s adult novel, The Host.

Here’s more from Variety: “Nick Wechsler will produce the indie through his eponymous banner, along with Chockstone Pictures’ Steve Schwartz and Paula Mae Schwartz. Given the B.O. muscle of the Twilight franchise, the marketability of Meyer’s name is expected to draw interest from distributors.”

In 2009, Meyer’s website named Andrew Niccol as both director and screenwriter for the production, but Row Three recently reported that Niccol will only serve as a writer. Meyer published The Host in 2008. She has discussed the idea of following up The Host with two sequels, The Soul and The Seeker.
