MONDAY AM UPDATE: Now I’ve confirmed that the merger talks are old news and took place before Summit’s Twilight hit big. As one of my sources tells me, “Those discussions went on at the end of the summer and beginning of September. Nothing came of it as Summit started to realize how big Twilight would be.”

PREVIOUS: Merger talks rumor making the rounds, what with Carl Icahn breathing down Lionsgate’s neck, and Summit Entertainment’s now valuable Twilight franchise.
