Gender-Swapped Twilight Coming Your Way


News broke recently that in honor (?) of the tenth anniversary of the publication of teen paranormal romance juggernaut Twilight, authress Stephenie Meyer will be releasing basically a director’s cut of the book where plot holes are corrected and where the genders of the characters are swapped. Yes! Antiquated gender roles and expectations be damned, here comes Edyth and Beau! And if you Twi-haters are worried this means that there’s an unending parade of new movies coming along, Meyer assures us that her fantasy casting means that you can rest easy:

I don’t really see that happening and a lot of the people I’d put in it would be like Grace Kelly so it’s a little too late for some of my first choices.

Ugg, does this mean that my gender-swapped version of the Baby-Sitters Club staring Kermit Roosevelt as Stanley McGill and Cary Grant as Don Schafer won’t be coming to a big screen? What was the point of that commerical where Gene Kelly danced with a vacuum cleaner if we can’t shove Grace Kelly in any old movie we want??!?  Technology is such a tease.

About flanny

Flanny was born and raised in a Detroit suburb, but tells people she's from Detroit without clarification because it makes her sound tough. She is not tough. Her favorite member of One Direction is Louis Tomlinson, and her favorite Agatha Christie detectives are Tommy and Tuppence.
