'Twilight' Spin-Off Featuring Jacob Black and Renesmee in the Works?

Author and 'Twilight' creator Stephenie Meyers hints that she is working on a new book, with the intent to adapt it into a feature.
Jacob and Renesmee may get their own spin-off

It sounds like a cruel April Fool's Day joke for hardcore Twilight haters across the globe. But it's true. Stephenie Meyer, creator of the novel series which the popular films are based on, has hinted that she is writing a new Twilight spin-off series that will focus on Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) and his relationship with Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy), the daughter of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), whom Jacob 'imprints' upon at the time of birth, marking the newborn as his life mate (or life protector, however you want to look at it).

This new novel series will be written with the intent to turn it into a movie.

When Stephenie Meyer was recently asked about the aging process between the two characters of Jacob and Renesmee, whose story will unfold in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, the author had this to say.

"That is a question I'm reserving the right not to answer, because there is a chance I'll go back to their story."


This spin-off is in place, because Stephenie Meyer doesn't feel there is anything left to say with Bella and Edward.

"(Their) story's already been told, and I doubt I'll ever write another series based on (those) same characters."


The Jacob/Renesmee spin-off won't happen for awhile, as Stephenie Meyer is currently working on a Young Adult science fiction story. It is possible that enough time will pass between The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 and this potential new franchise that Mackenzie Foy will be old enough to act against Taylor Lautner in a romantic relationship. And who knows, the teen heartthrob may be in need of a career boost at that time.

Twilight was released November 21st, 2008 and stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Billy Burke, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Cam Gigandet, Ashley Greene, Christian Serratos. The film is directed by Catherine Hardwicke.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 was released November 16th, 2012 and stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Ashley Greene, Jackson Rathbone, Kellan Lutz. The film is directed by Bill Condon.

    I love me some Taylor Lautner. Team Jacob all day! But, I honestly don't know if the spin off is a good idea. And Meyer is reported to be working on other things and has put Twilight aside. I am a huge fan of the series, but there is a such thing as 'over doing it.' Maybe it's just best if they leave Twilight the way it is. It ended, so let it have some peace. Let's move onward...

    did anyone read the short story about James and Lily Potter. I did and I highly enjoyed it.

    this is likely to happen if Harry Potter got a 9th film. But Harry Potter is so much better than this silly franchise.
    Though I would enjoy a prequel story in the HP universe.

    @bane5000 plus his 500,000 RV that he nearly bitched about like a girl with a law suit. Why do I sense that in the near future, if these get made that Bieber will be a part of this franchise, without jinxing it

    @bawnian-dexeus...thats probably why they're doing this, the few roles hes had so far beside Twilight hasnt really made an impact for him as an actor, so they gotta give his dumb ass something more to do with the charcter hes know for.....hes gotta pay the bills somehow lol

    Taylor Lautner must be happy. His skills as an actor won't be taken seriously for another movie

    Oh, Stephanie, just let this series die with what little dignity it has left. Revisiting it will merely be flogging a cold and rotten corpse.
