The Cullen family could be seeing some new faces in familiar roles unless some of the Twilight actors, notably Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene, are able to successfully renegotiate new contracts for the smash-hit film franchise’s final installments.
While reports are flying that the actors’ contract demands are holding up production of Breaking Dawn, which will be split into a two movies, insiders tell PEOPLE that isn’t true.
“Negotiations started a week ago [but] the reports they are holding up production aren’t true because there is no shooting script and production isn’t supposed to start until November, so no way is it holding up production,” says one source close to the deal-making.
“There was never a deal in place for the fourth movie,” the source adds. “They had a three-picture deal which has expired, and it’s standard industry practice to renegotiate, and it’s standard industry practice to negotiate on the fourth movie.”
Cullen kids Lutz and Greene have reportedly been trying to score pay days of about $1.5 million, which is still well below what stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are bringing in. And reports have circulated that the studio could simply replace them if negotiations go sour.
Another source close to the actors tells PEOPLE that “this renegotiation is nothing out of the ordinary.”
“It’s the first opportunity the actors have had to renegotiate at all. Their original contracts were through the first three films,” says the source. “Those first three [movies] obviously did amazingly and the kids didn’t share in the profits they didn’t get any bonuses.”


‘Breaking Dawn’ Runs Afoul of Greed, But Whose?

Twilight stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will bring home multi-million dollar paychecks for “Breaking Dawn” the final Twilight film or films. But what about secondary stars like Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz? How much do they deserve?
Apparently they want a pay day, too. And they deserve one. But how much is too much?
Someone is getting greedy as filming gets ready to start on a franchise that is approaching Harry Potter territory in terms of box office gross. But are the actors greedy or is Summit Entertainment way too stingy.
You may recall, Summit was a struggling independent studio when it filmed “Twilight” for $37 million. It was a make or break deal. If the film had failed, Summit could likely have gone under as well.
But the film became an international phenomenon and the rest as they say is history. The successful franchise will likely gross more than $1 billion when all is said and done.
Yet despite the almost guaranteed success of the remaining films, Summit continues to make them on the cheap.
“New Moon” cost just under $50 million to make, while “Eclipse” has reportedly cost around $65 million.
In contrast, the cost of “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince,” was $250 million.
What’s more “New Moon” made back its cost on opening day! “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” pulled in $72.7 million, and is the No. 1 film for opening day gross.
In addition, “New Moon” sold 4 million Blu-rays and DVDs, topped only by such films as “Avatar” (cost $400 million) and “Dark Knight” (cost $180 million).
Not surprisingly, Summit is running into big salary demands as it attempts to sign the principal actors for Breaking Dawn, which is likely to be made into two films, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the story.
