Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer recently spoke with Variety and spoke about the future of two of the most successful franchises Twilight and The Hunger Games.

“There are a lot more stories to be old, and we’re ready to tell them when our creators are ready to tell those stories.”

Feltheimer says that, but he also revealed that the franchises can reveal only with the consent of Twilight author Stephenie Meyer and Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins.

Twilight is based on four novel series by Meyer and consisted of five films: Twilight in 2008, Twilight Saga: New Moon in 2009, Twilight Saga: Eclipse in 2010, Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 in 2011 and Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 in 2012. It grossed over $3.3 billion worldwide and starred Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner. Meyer is currently executive producing an upcoming supernatural thriller The Rook at STARZ, with Stephen Garrett executive producing and serving as showrunner. Twilight tells the love story of human Bella and vampire Edward, though there could be more about their continuing adventures together.

Meanwhile, Hunger Games is based on the trilogy of novels from Collins and consisted of four films: The Hunger Games in 2012, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in 2012, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 in 2014 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 in 2015. It starred Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks and Stanley Tucci. The series grossed over $2.9 billion worldwide. Although the story of Katniss Everdeen might have finished, there can easily be a prequel about her life about any of the earlier Hunger Games.
