In honour of the 10 year anniversary of the Twilight saga, author Stephanie Meyer has written a gender bending edition. Titled Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined, the main character genders are swapped. The story instead, will be told by Beau, a male version of Bella Swan. Beau falls in love with vampire Edythe (originally Edward). The story starts out very similar to the original first story, however according to Meyers, diverges further into the book due to the different personalities.
Stephanie Meyer appeared on Good Morning America with the announcement of the book. She stated “…I wanted to do something fun for the 10th anniversary…” Meyer also said she had always been a little bothered by the criticism of Bella as a mere “damsel in distress’.
Meyers however, doesn’t see this re-imagined Twilight going to the big screen.
