NYPost Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz have closed deals to reup their roles in the next Twilight movie, “Breaking Dawn.”
Greene and Lutz signed contracts last nights, acccording to sources close to the deal.
Movie studio Summit Entertainment, which has made billions off the franchise, had been in negotiations with the two supporting characters since last week, but the two actors reportedly wanted pay increases for the next movie since the studio did not allow them to renegotiate on the second and third films.
Summit caved in after the two actors held out for more cash. “The studio realized how valuable Ashley and Kellan are to the franchise and did what they needed to do to keep them,” said a source close to the situation.
Reports said the kids have been trying to score paydays of $1.5 million. Sources said they two will receive close to that amount to continue on in their roles. “It was a good deal,” said the source.
The money is still much lower than what Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are supposedly pulling in.
“Breaking Dawn” will be the fourth and fifth movies of the Twilight franchises.
NY Post is a tabloid, so I think this may warrant more verified info from legit sources, but otherwise this is fantastic news! Especially, the confirmation for a 5th movie.
Here is GossipCop confirmation, still no mention about Twilight 5.
GossipCop Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz won’t be breaking up with Breaking Dawn.
Gossip Cop has confirmed that Greene and Lutz have signed contracts to return as Alice and Emmett Cullen for the final installment of the “Twilight” series.
The actors had been at an impasse with studio Summit Entertainment and reportedly threatened to leave their roles if their pay wasn’t increased.
While stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner receive far bigger paydays for their work, Greene and Lutz negotiated for raises in a franchise that has generated a fortune.
Neither was permitted to renegotiate terms for the second (New Moon) or third (Eclipse) films after the original became a blockbuster.
