Summit Entertainment has acquired rights to the next three novels in Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” vampire series just one week before the first film’s release says The Hollywood Reporter.
“Twilight” scribe Melissa Rosenberg will also adapt the scripts for films based on second and third books “New Moon” and “Eclipse”. No-one is yet attached to adapt the fourth novel “Breaking Dawn.”
“Twilight” revolves around the relationship between an average teenage girl, Bella, and a vampire, Edward. In “New Moon,” Edward leaves Bella, sending Bella into a depression and a friendship with a werewolf.
In the third book, “Eclipse,” that relationship triangle evolves, while evil empires begin to pursue Bella. “Breaking Dawn” pushes the plot further with a marriage between Bella and Edward.
