We hope you’re sitting down, Twihards. And we really hope you aren’t operating any heavy machinery at the moment.

Because the following news may cause you to faint on the spot.


Kind of. Sort of. Allow us to explain…

According to The New York Times, Lions Gate and novelist Stephenie Meyer will be choosing five aspiring female directors to make short films based on Twilight characters.

These productions will be shown exclusively on Facebook in 2015.


Also of note: Kristen Stewart will be among those on panel of women picking the aspiring directors.

Others on this panel will include Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer, Julie Bowen, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, film producer Cathy Schulman and Frozen director Jennifer Lee.

“The female voice is something that has become more and more important to me as I’ve worked in the film industry,” Meyers said via statement.

The short film series will be titled  “The Storytellers – New Creative Voices of The Twilight Saga” and, no, it will not include Robert Pattinson.

In May, Pattinson said he’s too old for more Twilight. He’s not female, either.

“This is the just the beginning – a template, if you will,” Burns said. “You can probably guess what might be coming next.”

We can? Could there be a sixth Twilight movie on the big screen?!? All Burns would say in response in this: “We love Stephenie Meyer.”

That means it really is possible! Commence screaming and yelling and crying, everyone!
