Variety reports that during a quarterly earnings call with analysts yesterday, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer said that the studio wants more sequels to The Hunger Games and Twilight. The only caveeat is they want the creators of the original stories to sign off on them. Here are highlights:

On wanting more films in the The Hunger Games and Twilight franchises: “There are a lot more stories to be told, and we’re ready to tell them when our creators are ready to tell those stories.”

On a deal between theaters and studios to get films to home entertainment faster: “If it were possible for us all to get in a room together and have exhibitors and studios and digital distributors all get in a room together, I’ve seen enough research to really believe that it’s really something that would be good for everybody.”

On a new on demand model coming soon: “I think that will happen. I think it would be great for the business.”
