Catherine Hardwicke Wishes On ‘Twilight’ Stars For New Films
Catherine Hardwicke, director of the first movie in the Twilight Saga, has her eyes on her former leading duo, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, to hopefully star in her next two projects: Maximum Ride and If I Stay.
“Some of the projects I’m doing, they would be in a completely different world,” Hardwicke revealed at the Young Hollywood Awards, MTV reports. “I’d love to do a number on them and transform them.” Again.
Maximum Ride tells the tale of half human, half bird hybrid teens in a fantasy film that is much in the same vein as the Twilight genre. Likewise, If I Stay would place Stewart in the role of a 17-year-old musician who, after a nasty crash, has an out-of-body experience resulting in her choosing life or death.
With the massively successful Twilight, Hardwicke catapulted its stars Stewart and Pattinson into the sweet life of fame and fortune. Still, it remains to be seen whether they’d be up for working with her again. Hardwicke’s statement comes after several members of the Twilight cast publicly denounced Hardwicke in favor of New Moon director Chris Weitz.
The prospect of a reunion between Hardwicke, Pattinson and Stewart sounds too good to be true, but we will literally hold our breath until the moment that there is an official casting announcement.
