Twilight Creator Stephenie Meyer is Working on New TV Series!

Twilight author Stephenie Meyer has a new supernatural TV series in the works!

While the title, The Rook, might make you wonder if it will have anything to do with Twilight – Edward Cullen and Bella Swan did love to play chess, after all – it will actually be based on the 2012 novel of the same name by Daniel O’Malley.

Starz made the announcement on Friday (July 28) at the Summer TCA Press Tour.

Here’s the synopsis from Starz: “The Rook tells the story of a young woman who wakes up in a London park suffering total amnesia – surrounded by dead bodies, all wearing latex gloves. Pursued by shadowy paranormal adversaries, grappling with peculiar ‘abilities’ of her own, she must fight to uncover her past, and resume her position at the head of Britain’s most secret (supernatural) service… before the traitors who stole her memory can finish what they started.”

The Rook, set for a 2018 premiere date, will feature “one of the most fascinating and thrilling female protagonists on television,” according to Starz CEO Chris Albrecht (via Vanity Fair).

No word on casting yet, but Stephenie will co-executive produce.

But he also said that his agents had to fly in and straighten him out while filming the first movie.

“I didn’t have to kiss anybody’s” rear end “the entire time,” Rob said. “I don’t think I did, anyway.”

We are so happy he didn’t get fired in the end. Can you imagine someone else playing Edward?!

New 'Twilight' Movies Are Coming & Kristen Stewart is Involved!

We are so excited because new Twilight movies are going to be made and Kristen Stewart is going to be involved!

Lions Gate just announced that they will be selecting five aspiring female directors to direct five new short films, which will be shown exclusively on Facebook next year. The films will be about characters from the series, but will not feature any original cast members.

“We think Facebook is a great way for us to introduce the world of Twilight to a whole new audience while re-energizing existing fans,” Lions Gate vice chairman Michael Burns told The New York Times. “This is the just the beginning—a template, if you will. You can probably guess what might be coming next.”

A panel of women in the entertainment industry will be selecting the female directors. The panelists include Kristen, author Stephenie Meyer, Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer, Julie Bowen, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, film producer Cathy Schulman, and Frozen director Jennifer Lee.

“The female voice is something that has become more and more important to me as I’ve worked in the film industry,” Stephenie said in a statement.
