TWILIGHT'S MACABRE MELODRAMA
Studios seem to be smitten with the idea of star-crossed lovers embroiled in a supernatural plot of some kind. Creature Corner have spoken of a werewolf project called Blood and Chocolate before - a teenie bopper werewolf novel that's been dragging its feet to get to the big screen since the Scream days - and Underworld was more action than romance (or horror), but we got the impression that sparks were flyin' between Beckinsale and her co-star Scott Speedman. Now, MTV and Madonna's Maverick Films are going to try their hand at romance horror-style with Twilight.
Based on a novel hitting bookstores later this year, Stephanie Meyer's Twilight concerns a young high school gal who falls in love with a vampire and must decide whether she'll join the ranks of the undead.
Paramount Pictures will distribute the film. This mark's MTV's first foray into the genre following Varsity Blues, Jackass: The Movie, and Perfect Score.
