Vampires bring $7 bil to Hollywood economy

24 August 2010 11:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Hollywood has repeatedly peddled the apocalyptic threat from aliens, machines, comets, viruses and zombies, but who was watching the vampires?

Never exactly absent from the entertainment scene, those eternal bloodsuckers lately have infiltrated everything from big screens and little screens to bookstore shelves, clothing racks, download services, video games and video, record and jewelry stores.

Just this week, the Fox/New Regency "Twilight" parody "Vampires Suck" grossed $20 million, and 5 million regular viewers are rabidly following HBO's newest hit, "True Blood," as it swoops toward its season 3 finale Sept. 12. Meanwhile, Justin Cronin's "The Passage," Stephenie Meyer's "Breaking Dawn" and Charlaine Harris' "Dead and Gone" hover on best-seller lists.

These charming, deadly immortals are everywhere. And as a result, they're spilling as much green as red -- about $7 billion since the "Twilight" film franchise bowed less than two years ago, according to THR estimates.

The former "Queen" will join co-stars Bruce Willis (perhaps also on hand for "The Expendables"), Karl Urban and Mary Louise Parker in discussing their new thriller "Red."  While Morgan Freeman and John Malkovich are currently not scheduled to attend, the rest of the crew will appear in the »

Why You Should Feel A Little Bad for Robert Pattinson

20 June 2010 1:40 PM, PDT | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

In an interview with the New York Times, Robert Pattinson admitted he's suffering from a bit of Twilight-fatigue and that "it can get a little boring. The good news is that the whole thing is done in seven months." I'm sure poor R-Pattz will be beset on both sides for such a candid comment. At one end he'll get it from die-hard Twilight fans who will brook no insults -- real or imagined -- directed towards their beloved series of books, movies and plush duvet sets. On the other side will be all those who find it difficult to empathize with an incredibly good-looking actor who has the starring role in a billion-dollar movie series and no shortage of job offers. But come on: Don't you feel just the teensiest bit sorry for Robert Pattinson? »

Kristen Stewart ready for 'Breaking Dawn'

14 June 2010 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Kristen Stewart can't wait to sink her teeth into "Breaking Dawn," the two-part finale in the smash hit "Twilight" films about falling in love with a vampire.

The actress at the center of the movie series, which sees its third episode "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" wing its way into theaters June 30, said that when her teenager Bella Swan finally becomes one of the living dead in "Breaking Dawn," she will be "coolest vampire" of the cult.

"I've thought about it a lot, and I can't wait to actually be it. It's going to be a trip, it's going to be weird," Stewart told reporters over the weekend in interviews to promote "Eclipse."

The "Twilight" movies all revolve around teenager Bella and her forbidden romance with the vampire Edward Cullen. The books by author Stephenie Meyer have become a publishing sensation, and the movies have sucked cash out of theater boxoffices. »

Salary dispute holding up 'Twilight 5' announcement

10 May 2010 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Summit Entertainment is working furiously to close the talent deals required to split Stephenie Meyer's fourth "Twilight" novel into two films. But an unlikely roadblock is holding up an announcement -- and could even lead to cast changes for the series' final installment.

The studio is close to finalizing agreements with leads Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, all of whom will get big raises to return for a fifth installment of the vampire romance saga. And director Bill Condon is already signed to film two "Breaking Dawn" movies, which would be shot back-to-back starting in the fall and released in November 2011 and summer 2012, respectively. »

Regardless, as with the previous three films, Melissa Rosenberg is adapting the Stephenie Meyer novel, while Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner will return to star. »

Another month, another plagiarism claim. The target this time is "Harry Potter" creator J.K. Rowling, whose name has been added as a defendant to a lawsuit filed in June against Bloomsbury Publishing Plc by the estate of the late Adrian Jacobs. According to The Associated Press, the suit alleges that "Potter" book four, 2000's "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," borrowed liberally from Jacobs' 1987 book "The Adventures of Willy the Wizard — No. 1 Livid Land" and took other ideas from the "Willy the Wizard" series.

Rowling, no stranger to copyright infringement proceedings, was quick to speak up in her own defense. "I am saddened that yet another claim has been made that I have taken material from another source to write Harry," she said. »

'Twilight' alum joins John Wells drama

18 February 2010 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

"Twilight" alumna Rachelle Lefevre has been tapped as a lead in John Wells' untitled ensemble medical drama for CBS.

The medical drama, from Warner Bros. TV and John Wells Prods., centers on a mobile medical team that travels the U.S. helping those in need get through life-or-death medical crises.

Lefevre will play a confident young doctor more comfortable in the field than in the office.

The project brings the actress back to CBS, where she co-starred on the drama series "Swingtown."

Lefevre is best known for her role as Victoria in the first two "Twilight" movies.

Meanwhile, Carrie Wiita ("Reno 911!"), repped by Bauman, Redanty & Shaul and Omnipop, and Andrea Savage ("Dinner for Schmucks") round out the cast of NBC's comedy pilot "The Strip."

"The Strip," from "Reno 911" masterminds Tom Lennon and Ben Garant, Ums and Principato-Young, stars Lennon as a former child star turned Hooters-style bar owner on the outskirts of Las Vegas. »

Summit develops 'Push' TV series

19 January 2010 6:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Summit Entertainment, the upstart film outfit behind the "Twilight" phenom as well as critical fave "The Hurt Locker," is doing what all clever indies do: "pushing" into TV.

The company is partnering with another indie, E1 Entertainment, to jointly develop and produce a TV series based on Summit's recent pic "Push."

The series will purportedly be an extension of the science-fiction thriller, centered on people with paranormal powers who band together to take down a corrupt government agency. The small-screen "Push" project furthers the relationship established in 2007 between Summit and E1, with the latter licensing exclusive distribution rights to Summit-produced movies in the U.K. and Canada.

Screenwriter David Hayter, who penned "Watchmen" and two of the "X-Men" movies, will script the series pilot. E1 and Dark Hero Studios, co-owned by Hayter and producing partner Benedict Carver, will jointly produce the series based on the screenplay created by David Bourla for Summit. »
