Twilight (2008) director Catherine Hardwicke has revealed her dream cast for a potential reboot of the box office hit.

It turned out that Hardwicke would now invite Jacob Elordi and Jenna Ortega to play the roles of vampire Edward Cullen and schoolgirl Bella Swan, respectively. “Oh, that would be a 100% hit,” Katherine said when asked about the actors. “I think he (Elordi) is amazing. He would be Edward today." The director also added about Ortega that she is amazing.

The planned reboot of the 15-year-old hit became known recently. Before filming, Lionsgate studio decided to find a buyer for the new film among streaming services and television networks. In addition, Stephenie Meyer, author of the Cullen vampire family series of novels, will be involved in this project.
