Summit Entertainment: Talk Of Fifth ‘Twilight’ Film Is Premature

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- New “Eclipse” cast member BooBoo Stewart sent the Twi-hards into a frenzy on Friday when he told Access Hollywood there would be two more movies in the “Twilight Saga” after the third chapter, “Eclipse.”
However, a rep for Summit Entertainment – the studio behind the hit vampire film franchise – has now told Access that BooBoo (who will join the big screen saga as wolfpack member Seth Clearwater in the next installment) was premature in his statements.
“We appreciate our young actor’s enthusiasm for the franchise and his role, but his comments about the number of films were unfortunately uninformed and not accurate,” the Summit rep said in a statement to Access.
Although BooBoo has contract options for additional films after “Eclipse,” there are no guarantees yet that those films will be made.
And while a fourth film in the series is likely since there are four books in the popular Stephenie Meyer’s series, the studio could not confirm “Breaking Dawn” would make it from the page to the screen just yet.
“However, the fans should rest assured the we’re working with Stephenie Meyer to bring ‘Breaking Dawn’ to the big screen,” the rep continued.
“New Moon,” the second film in the series, will hit theaters on November 20. Filming on the third chapter, “Eclipse,” began earlier this month in Vancouver.
“Eclipse” will hit theaters in North America on Wednesday, June 30, 2010.
