The winning screenplays for the upcoming ‘Twilight’ short films have been announced.
A while back, Stephenie Meyer announced a project called The Storytellers: New Voices of the Twilight Saga to promote aspiring female directors in the film industry.
Screenplays were submitted from new female writers, each revolving around at least one character from the young adult novels. Although the story could cover anyone from the books, each plot had to precede the first entry of the Twilight movies.
The six works were chosen from 1,200 submissions by the book’s author Stephenie Meyer, Lionsgate, Women in Film, Facebook and Volvo as a part of the project.
Among the six works, three of them focus on Edward’s sister Alice, played by Ashley Greene in the movies, reported Aceshowbiz.
Titled ‘The Groundskeeper’, one of the works sees events which led Alice to become a vampire.
Another story, titled ‘We’ve Met Before’, centres on Alice’s first meeting with Jasper,played by Jackson Rathbone in the movies.
The other story called ‘The Mary Alice Brandon File’ will feature Alice and her life as a human.
‘Sunrise’ will have Benjamin, one of Carlisle’s friends who appeared in film ‘Breaking Dawn’.
Another one titled ‘Turncoats’ will see Carlisle and Garrett from the Denali coven during the Revolutionary War. The last one is ‘Consumed’, which describes the story of Jane and Alec, Volturi’s guards.
The project is now searching for directors. The short films will later debut on Facebook.
