Lions Gate Said in Merger Talks With ‘Twilight’ Maker Summit

Lions Gate Entertainment Corp., the independent film and TV company, is in merger talks with Summit Entertainment LLC, the studio behind the “Twilight” vampire movies, three people with knowledge of the situation said.

The companies have resumed discussions that broke down in the past over price and control issues, the people said yesterday. They declined to speak publicly because talks are private and there’s no assurance a deal will be reached. Summit has additional suitors, one of the people said.
