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.
