If ‘Twilight’ is ever a TV show, the city of Forks hopes it will be filmed there.
Twilight TV series a rumor now, but letter written to Hollywood film studio — just in case
FORKS — It’s a rumor, said Rosemary Colandrea, spokeswoman for the Stephenie Meyer Day Committee.
“It is not a fact that we know for sure,” she said.
But the group has already written letters it will mail to promote Forks just in case a television series based on Stephenie Meyer’s four-novel Twilight series materializes.
If Lions Gate Entertainment elects to produce a TV series, the committee members think it should be filmed in Forks.
“We’re the Forks in the books,” Colandrea said, noting that none of the five “Twilight Saga” movies was filmed in Forks.
Instead, for tax reasons, filmmakers went to Oregon and British Columbia.
Where does the rumor of a television series come from?
Jon Feltheimer, chief executive officer of Lions Gate Entertainment, was quoted about the possibility in a Los Angeles Times story published Jan. 15.
In January, the Hollywood studio company Lions Gate Entertainment acquired Summit Entertainment, which owns the “Twilight” movie franchise, for $412.5 million.
When asked if “Twilight” could become a TV series, Feltheimer told the Times, “I would certainly hope so.”
