TV: Twilight

The Twilight Saga "is getting the television treatment," according to the Hollywood Reporter, which noted that a series version of Stephenie Meyer's bestselling book series is in early development via Lionsgate Television. The Twilight film franchise collectively grossed more than $3.4 billion worldwide.  

Sinead Daly (Tell Me Lies, The Walking Dead: World Beyond, Raised by Wolves) is attached to write the script, and "is working with Lionsgate TV to determine what the specific take on Twilight will be and if it will be a remake of Meyer's books or a different offshoot," THR wrote, adding that while the project "is in its infancy and does not yet have a network/platform," sources said that Meyer "is expected to be involved in the television adaptation. "

Wyck Godfrey and former Lionsgate Motion Picture Group co-president Erik Feig, who during his tenure at Summit Entertainment bought the rights to the Twilight book series, are both attached to exec produce the TV series. Godfrey's Temple Hill company produced all five of the movies that Feig's Summit distributed.
