Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz: Out of Breaking Dawn?!?

by at . Comments

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.

Edward and Bella in Breaking Dawn

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?

They cannot replace either of them!!!!!!!!!! the casting was brilliant! there couldn't be a better alice and emmett. if they are replaced i wont see the movie. their parts are way too small as it is! in the books alice was the 4th most important charectar after bella, edward, and jacob. they better not get replaced.

As of right now, I don't plan on seeing Breaking Dawn anyway (I don't know why, but maybe I'll feel differently after Eclipse comes out), but if Kellan and Ashley were replaced, then I DEFINITELY would not go see the movie. Just sayin'.

I agree with everyone else the movie will NOT be the same without Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene they are a major part of the Cullen clan and have bigger roles in Breaking Dawn the mmovie will not be the same without them I hated it when they let victoria go. they will have a lot of angry people. pay kellan and ashley they have earned it dearly and they are at everything Twilight for summit. summit needs to come off of some of their money and pay these 2 actors a raise. they paid the other actors a raise.

I hope its Summit Ent that loses! Summit Ent has screwed over ever actor that has been part of the Twi Series! The article points out that Taylor makes 7.5 mil well after taxes that’s 4 mil and then let his agent, publicist, etc take a cut and he will make about 2.5 million. Look at what Summit has made on each movie. The only way Summit will ever pay attention is if we hit them in their pocket book. I am asking that you don’t go see Letters to Juliet and Furry Vengence and don’t buy anymore New Moon DVD’s (Only until Summit Ent decides to play fair). Look you Twi fans can move mountains when you put your mind to it. I know most of you only care about Robert, Taylor and Kristen. Do you honestly think that Robert, Taylor and Kristen would feel good about their friends being treated that way?

I definitely don't want the actors to be replaced in the last installment of the Twilight Saga, but I can also be frank as to say that the characters are necessarily huge towards the end, well Alice is, but they're nowhere near Lautner, Pattinson, Stewart of importance in terms of character!

Poor dumb studio execs at Summit. So busy trying to milk every fan for their bucks they are losing sight of what the fans want. I don't think anyone would call Lutz or Green Oscar caliber actors at this point in their careers but they have done a great job at portraying these characters onscreen in addition to marching along to every promotional event that greedy Summit books for them with no complaints. SO SUMMIT -- keep these actors! There is nothing wrong with an actor wanting a bigger piece of the pie when they have done their job. Do not ruin the franchise for the fans and create backlash by making more cast changes. The Twi Saga has made the studio a lot of money and if you want to make more, stop screwing with fans of the movies.
