Summit CEO Interview

"When we realized there was a chance we could get it – the person who brought it to us was someone who worked with me at Paramount – we aggressively pursued it." ~ Says Friedman, CEO of Summit Entertainment, on pursuing the rights to Twilight.  Read more on Shock ’till you Drop.

  1. It was a good choice… Thank God they believed in the success of Twilight. I wish they could adapt a TV series for Midnight Sun or Edward’s history. I would like to see how he became a vampire and how he controlled his thirst for blood, etc.. It’s like a pre-Bella story.

  2. And aren’t we all glad that they did pursue it?! :)

  3. I love the bit about how other studios are going to be kicking themselves for passing up Twilight.

  4. haaha i agree with Dawn :D

  5. How ironic that Twilight signifies a beginning.

  6. They said the movie was BASED on the book. Do they really mean that or is it just someone’s words?! Because if it’s BASED, they nearly always screw up the movie…

  7. La tua Cantante says:

    Yes…studios WILL be kicking themselves.
    I am so glad they realized the popularity growth of the books and saw the potential for a GREAT Love story type movie!!!!!!!
    Those are always my favorite!!!!!!
    They were sooo smart to pursue! I hope Stephenie will eventually give the rights so we can see the Whole Twilght series on film!!!
    Can’t Wait for the movie!!! I will be there to see it a few times I’m sure!!!

  8. I’m breathing much easier every day now. I’m so glad that they saw how fantastic this book was and wanted to make it into a movie. They’re going to do a great job. :)

  9. Ashton, technically a film from a book is always “based on” the book because a book and a film are different media; that’s nothing to worry about. Stephenie has seen the script, the actual filming and the storyboards (which is a mockup of the whole film), and she seems happy with it all.

  10. Hey guys today is Kristen Stewart Birthday! HAPPY 18 BIRTHDAY KRISTEN!!!! :D * :D * :D

  11. La tua Cantante says:

    OH! I HOPE IN THE FILM,FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN EDWARD IS TELLING BELLA HOW CARLILE STORY,HOW HE GOT CHANGED
    ADN HOW CARLILES FATHER WAS A PRIEST OR WHATEVER,I WOULD LOVE TO SEE LIKE IT ALL GO BACK DURING THAT TIME WITH COSTUMES AND SUCH AND SHOW CARLILES STORY!!!!! WHILE EDWARD WOULD BE TELLING THE STORY1 I WOULD LOVE TO SEE WHEN CARLIE GOES TO HUNT FOR THE VAMPIRES NOT KNOWING WHAT THEY REALLY WERE AND WHEN HE GOT ATTACKED AND WHEN HE HAD TO PUT HIMSELF INTO THE ROTTEN POTATOES DURING HIS TTRANSFORMATION!!! IF THEY MAKE NEW MOON THEN THEY COULD GO BACK IN TIME TOO AND SHOW A SMALL PIECE OF WHEN EDWARD AND HIS MOM GOT SICK FROM THE SPANISH INFLUENZA AND SHOW A PART WHEN EDWARDS MOM BEGS CARLILE TO SAVE HIM AND HE PROMISES AND TALKES HIM BACK TO HIS PLACE OVER THE ROOFTOPS LIKE IT SAID AND CHANGES HIM!!! THEY COULD EASILY DO THAT WHILE CARLILE WOULD BE BANDAGING BELLA UP FORM HER FALL AT HER B-DAY PARTY LIKE IN THE BOOK CARLILE TELLS HER THE STORY ANYWAY..HE COULD BE THE NARRATOR FOR THAT ONE! i WOULD LOVE TO SEE ROSALIES STORY TOO!!!
    IT WOULD BE SO COOL TO SEE THEM ALL GO BACK IN TIME WITH DIFFERENT TURN OF THE CENTURY COSTUMES TO SHOW THERE STORIES!
    SORRY TO GO OFF ON IT BUT I HOPW THEY THPUGHT OF THIS!!! IT WOULD MAKE IT ADD SO MUCH MORE TO THE MOVIES!!! I WANT TO SEE HW EDWARD AND ALL OF THEM GOT CHANGED,DONT YOU GUYS?

  12. Isnt today Kristen Stewart’s b-day? Happy Birthday!

  13. Whatever says:

    Is it really necessary to spam these sites’ comments with promoting the lexicon? It is the largest and most visited Twilight fan website. What more do you want? It’s really starting to get annoying to see LEXICON LEXICON LEXICON everywhere. All you did was post a link to a public article on a public website. Why do you need extra credit for doing what every fan site does?

  14. seriously!! says:

    whatever — i AGREE WITH YOU. whoever is posting these updates. i am assuming Pel. ugh do you have any idea how annoying it gets reading this line time and time again.

    If you comment on their site, let them know you got the link here!

    SERIOUSLY!!!

  15. Wow you sure are ungrateful! Do u know how much time it takes to get all these updates and then all they ask is for you to give them a little credit? Also if you dont like it go somewhere else we dont need your hating her
