Summit is reportedly working on to split the final chapter of 'Twilight' into two parts, but salary dispute with some stars holds the studio from announcing the decision.

Although Summit Entertainment has officially announced that "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn" will be released in the U.S. on November 18, 2011, the studio has not confirmed whether or not it will be split into two parts. Latest report on the development mentions that the studio indeed wants two "Breaking Dawn" movies and is close to finalize deals with main cast to return to the fifth "Twilight" film.

While Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are rumored getting big raises for the last installment, Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene reportedly have not found agreements with the studio regarding their salaries. A source close to the dealmaking tells The Hollywood Reporter (THR) that the depicters of Emmet Cullen and Alice Cullen want bigger paydays that Summit is unwilling to provide.

THR learns that Summit has actually offered money 10 times bigger than the actors made in the first movie. However, it is still deemed "offensive" since they studio has generated a lot of cume from the franchise.

The source then suggests that either Lutz or Greene might be cut from the cast ensemble, saying "We may have a situation where one of them is thrown out on the street to make a point." Another source affirms the speculation, adding "This thing is gonna be two movies. With or without the cast intact."

THR also reports that "Breaking Dawn" might be shot in Louisiana to make an adjustment to the already bigger budget. However, Summit declines to release any comment on the situation. Bill Condon is on board to direct "Breaking Dawn" and reportedly signed to make the two parts.

Which sucks still cause I do like Kellan quuuiite a bit. I dont think he gets utilized as he should be at all but I'd still like to see him there.

I like how the first person thinks 2.5 mil is getting screwed. But if anyone gets tossed, its going to be Emmett. Ive never read the books but I know for a fact that Alice is more important to the general story than Emmett is. To replace Ashley would do detriment to the character who is already perfectly played. It would be insane, especially when she's one of the only enjoyable parts of the movie.

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 thatís 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 donít go see Letters to Juliet and Furry Vengence and donít buy anymore New Moon DVDís (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?

Summit already made a mistake with that whole Rachelle Lefevre situation. They'd be dead wrong to make another cut/recast.

PS Anna Kendrick doesnt do as much as alice in the movies, and Anna has even said she may not return to the series. If anything, her commitment is a little short

I would honestly freak the fuck out.. Kellan Lutz is the ONLY attractive male in that movie.. I wouldn't go see it. and it's the movie i've been waiting for.. I'd really probably cry.

with the die hard twilight fans summit would be silly to not cast however the actors need to be reasonable too, but big misstake if recast and you cant do breaking dawn without them

Who gives a crap. Ashley can't act, but yeah i would miss kella, but if they are divas well their fault. Anna kendrick should be payed 10 times these two.
