In the wake of its “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games” franchises coming to an end, Lionsgate has been trying to launch similar success stories with only the occasional one doing well (eg. “John Wick”) and some notably failing (like the most recent “Divergent” film).
During a quarterly earnings call on Tuesday, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer is keen to let investors know that there could be more on the way from both its seemingly wrapped cash cows, stating that: “There are a lot more stories to be told, and we’re ready to tell them when our creators are ready to tell those stories.”
However, Feltheimer reportedly implied that they would only continue with the consent of “Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer and “Hunger Games” author Suzanne Collins. Worldwide, the “Twilight” series grossed over $3.3 billion, while “The Hunger Games” made over $2.9 billion worldwide.
