A live orchestra will perform composer Carter Burwell's score as the original 'Twilight' film returns to the big screen.

Twilight, the Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattison-starring vampire romance that sparked the YA genre boom, is headed back to the big screen.

Franchise holder Lionsgate on Thursday unveiled plans for a Twilight live-to-film concert world tour to start in August in Brazil, followed by stops in Australia and the U.K. The Twilight in Concert tour will feature a full orchestra performing Carter Burwell's original film score timed to a screening of the Summit Entertainment title.

The live-to-film concert Twilight experience, based on Stephenie Meyer’s young adult vampire romance novel, follows other film concert tours from Lionsgate like The Hunger Games in Concert and La La Land in Concert, with more than 125 performances in 25 countries to date.

"The combination of author Stephenie Meyer’s brilliant storytelling, Carter Burwell’s musical genius and a truly legendary underlying film and book property will continue to expand the world of Twilight and introduce it to legions of new fans around the world," Lionsgate senior vp global live and location-based entertainment Jenefer Brown said in a statement.

Summit Entertainment’s Twilight franchise grossed over $3.3 billion at the global box office. The original film adaptation was directed by Catherine Hardwicke, from a screenplay by Melissa Rosenberg.
