Taylor Lautner would be up for a Jacob 'Twilight' spinoff

Vampires are immortal, right? What about shapeshifting wolves? Fittingly, fans aren't ready to let the "Twilight" series die with this week's release of "Breaking Dawn Part 2."

Various reports, including this Moviehole post, claim that the supernatural cash cow isn't going to be allowed to head out to pasture and that a spinoff, maybe focusing on Jacob Black's Wolfpack, and maybe on TV rather than in theaters, is a possibility.

Ryan Seacrest asked Black's portrayer, Taylor Lautner, about this rumor on his radio show Monday, but naturally Lautner couldn't or wouldn't confirm that any such plan is in the works.


“I honestly know as much as you do,” Lautner said. “The only thing that I’ve heard is whatever’s online and people are talking about.”

But when Seacrest asked him if he's ready to recreate his role, the 20-year-old actor was enthused. “I love this franchise and this character and everybody involved so much, I absolutely would have to consider it," he said.

Earlier this month, Lautner's co-star Robert Pattinson told Australia's Herald Sun that he kept "hearing things" about a future for the franchise. Pattinson told the paper he didn't rule out a return to playing Edward Cullen, saying "I don't say 'definitely not' to anything, just in case."

Pattinson had previously joked to Total Film that "Twilight" should be rebooted as "a straight-up porn film." And author Stephenie Meyer has mulled the possibility of a new life for "Twilight" focusing on Bella and Edward's daughter Renesmee.
