The Twilight reboot series might have found its Bella and Edward. According to Catherine Hardwicke, the director of Twilight movies, the two young hot stars are perfect for the roles. Twilight made Robbert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart famous overnight when it was released in 2008. Jacob Elordi and Jenna Ortega can potentially play the fan-favorite Twilight Characters in the upcoming Twilight reboot series.
Are Jacob Elordi and Jenna Ortega going to be in the series?
No, it was just a suggestion by Catherine Hardwicke, she agreed with Josh Horowitz on the “Watchalong” podcast:
“He’s amazing. He probably would be Edward today,” Hardwicke said of Elordi, who is currently enjoying a double header of success with starring roles in Sofia Coppola’s “Priscilla” and Emerald Fennell’s “Saltburn.”
Jacob Elordi rose to fame by appearing in Netflix’s hit “The Kissing Booth” and he also impressed people by playing Nate Jacob on Euphoria. So, it seems like Jacob Elordi can easily play the brooding vampire in the Twilight series.
Hardwicke also agreed and praised Jenna Ortega and she thinks the Scream actress is a good choice to play Bella;
“I do think there’s a lot of really cool young actors,” Hardwicke said. “You just mentioned Jenna Ortega, she’s amazing.”
Ortega rose to fame by starring in Netflix’s hit “Wednesday” and Scream movies. The actress is no stranger to playing teenage girls on the screens. But, the actress has a busy schedule as she is filming for Wednesday season 2 and Beetlejuice 2 so it might be difficult for her to be part of the Twilight series.
Hardwicke revealed that Lewis Tan also auditioned for the role of Jacob Black back in 2008 but the role went to Taylor Lautner instead. So, if the TV series wants the perfect Jacob Black, the 36-year-old might be a good choice.
There is no news about the release date of the most anticipated series yet. The TV series is still in development and Lionsgate has to announce the release date officially.
There is no official announcement regarding the casting of the TV series. Both Jacob Elordi and Jenna Ortega are the hottest faces in Hollywood right now so expecting them to be part of the series can be difficult.
