Numerous reports have confirmed that Summit Entertainment and The Twilight Saga producers will divide Breaking Dawn into two films.
So, why has an official announcement still not been made regarding the final story in this franchise? Because a salary dispute may actually keep two key players from appearing in the final chapter.
No, not Robert Pattinson or Kristen Stewart. Both of these stars, along with Taylor Lautner, have agreed to anchor both Breaking Dawn installments, with significant raises to show for it.
HOWEVER, neither Kellan Lutz nor Ashley Greene is close to a deal for the second of the two flicks. According to The Hollywood Reporter, each wants a bigger payday ($4 million) than the studio is willing to deliver.
"We may have a situation where one of them is thrown out on the street to make a point," a source actually said.
Might The Twilight Saga conclude without Kellan Lutz and/or Ashley Greene?!?
Such a drastic move would not be unprecedented, even within the Twilight universe itself:
Following her role as Victoria in Twilight and New Moon, Rachelle Lefevre was replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard in Eclipse.
Fans were distressed enough about that decision - but there could be an all-out mutiny if anyone in the Cullen clan is replaced with a new actor or actress. What do you think of this development?
