Wow. Lionsgate bought Summit and is planning to extend the Twilight movies beyond the books.
I doubt they’ll get RPattz and KStew back, though.

Anyway, I had really been looking forward to The Gates, which was touted as Desperate Housewives, but with vampires, werewolves and witches. It has elements of a somber, toned-down True Blood. I enjoyed it a lot.
The premise of this glossy, suburban Dark Shadows is that these families, for one reason or another, want to live in a gated community–and this one is an actual community with schools, stores, and woods (of course)–so they can feel protected from the outside world. More than a few of the residents are monsters. Bloodletting and non-hilarity ensues.
It was creepy, stylish, and very serious, which may or may not work. Part of the fun of Housewives and True Blood is the over-the-top humor. So far The Gates has an emotionally torn vampire mom and an emotionally torn teenage werewolf boy, both of whom I was rooting for.
I hope it lasts. So far it looks like it’s drawing crap ratings: 4.65 million viewers and 1.5/4 in the adult 18-49 demo.

Apparently the online version of something called The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer is available for free today at noon.
Fans of The Twilight Saga will be enthralled by this riveting story of Bree Tanner, a character first introduced in Eclipse, and the newborn vampire world she inhabits. In another irresistible combination of danger, mystery, and romance, Stephenie Meyer tells the devastating story of Bree and the newborn army as they prepare to close in on Bella Swan and the Cullens, following their encounter to its unforgettable conclusion.
