If you thought Twilight was done and dusted – think again!

The franchise is making a comeback two years after Breaking Dawn – Part 2 was released, through Facebook instead of the big screen.

Lions Gate and Stephenie Meyer will select five aspiring female directors to make short films based on Twilight characters, backed financially by Lions Gate. The Storytellers -New Creative Voices of The Twilight Saga will then debut on Facebook next year.

And the best part? Kristen Stewart will be on the panel of women picking the directors!

She will be joined by industry heavyweights such as Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer, Julie Bowen, Catherine Hardwicke, film producer Cathy Schulman and Frozen director Jennifer Lee.

“The female voice is something that has become more and more important to me as I've worked in the film industry,” Meyers said.

“This is the just the beginning - a template, if you will,” Lions Gate Vice Chairman Michael Burns added. “You can probably guess what might be coming next.”
