Round The Twist Actor Is Keen On Doing A Reunion Movie

It's been 30 years since the iconic Round the Twist series came onto televisions around Australia and we all instantly fell in love.

But in an interesting...twist...we could soon be seeing a revival of the cast.

One of the actors who played Bronson Twist in the show, Matthew Waters, has revealed his idea for a reunion movie.

Reunions are all the rage at the moment, especially during lockdown, and Matthew says he even came up with a way to kickstart the plot.

"A few years ago I had some pretty thick notes put together for a film, for a Round The Twist film, where kind of brought all of the original or I guess my original cast back," Waters said on The Babble podcast.

He revealed that the movie would focus on Mr Gribble's son assuming control of the iconic lighthouse and the Twist family have to come back to fight it.

Sadly though, brining this idea to life is harder than you think.

Matthew continued: "We had to all of this great stuff and then when we have reached out to try and get it, they're just so tight with the rights. You know, they're holding on to them cause it is, you can't, it's priceless, you can't sell it."

He admitted that it can sometimes be a tragedy when legendary shows or movies get the reboot treatment, but Matt reckons what he wrote was a golden opportunity to keep the Round the Twist legacy going.

While those plans might have to wait for a little while longer Mr Waters did tease the idea of the cast at least coming together for a Zoom reunion of sorts.

Because it's coming up to the 30th anniversary of the show starting in Australia, many people are wondering if we could see everyone back together.

Plenty of TV show casts have rallied together to have a virtual catch up for the fans during the pandemic and Round the Twist could follow suit.

"Well you know we could Zoom, we're doing Zoom right now. No, but like, Rian McLean (who played Peter Twist) has vanished off the face of the earth no one can find him."

He says he's spoken to Ebonnie Masini, who played Linda Twist, once or twice since the show ended, and had kept in good contact with Tom Budge, who portrayed Tiger Gleeson.

So it could be harder than you think to get everyone in the same virtual room together - but never say never.
