Summit had been planning, for the longest time, to split the final installment of “Twilight”, “Breaking Dawn”, into two movies. But when it was recently announced that “Dreamgirls” director Bill Condon would direct “Breaking Dawn”, there was no mention of the film being split into two.
The reason? Apparently a couple of the series’ stars had decided to play hardball : They weren’t going to do “Breaking Dawn Part 2″ unless Summit paid them ‘very handsomedly’.
And, surprisingly enough, those stars weren’t lead trio Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner or Robert Pattinson! Nope, it’s Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene that have been rapidly rubbing their hands together whilst volunteering a devilish smile.If Summit didn’t give them what they wanted, they’d be forced to recast their respective characters, Emmett and Alice Cullen.
Greene and Lutz have come to an agreement with Summit : They won’t be paid the $4 million for each film they wanted, but they have managed to wrangle $1.2 million per film out of the shingle.
Your shout guys!
