‘Twilight’ Is Getting a Film-Concert Tour

Twilight” is being resurrected.

The hit movie franchise, based on Stephenie Meyer’s YA book series, is getting a film-concert tour a la fellow Lionsgate properties “The Hunger Games” and “La La Land.”

Lionsgate is launching the “Twilight in Concert” world tour in August in Brazil, followed by stops in Australia and the U.K.

The event will feature a full orchestra performing Carter Burwell’s original film score timed to a screening of “Twilight,” the 2008 romantic fantasy that launched the highly successful five-film franchise that hauled $3.3 billion worldwide.

“Twilight” is the third Lionsgate movie to receive a concert tour following “The Hunger Games in Concert” and “La La Land in Concert.” Those tours have accounted for more than 100 performances in 25 countries to date.

“We’re thrilled to launch another live-to-film tour in the footsteps of our ‘Hunger Games’ and ‘La La Land’ international concert events,” said Lionsgate’s Jennifer Brown. “The combination of author Stephenie Meyer’s brilliant storytelling, Carter Burwell’s musical genius, and a truly legendary underlying film and book property will continue to expand the world of ‘Twilight’ and introduce it to legions of new fans around the world.”

The original “Twilight,” starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, was directed by Catherine Hardwicke from a screenplay by Melissa Rosenberg.
