Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz Close 'Breaking Dawn' Deal
Ashley and Kellan had been holding out on renewing their contracts with the goal of scoring a bigger payday. All parties are happy now, and both vamps are rumored to bring home an estimated $1.25 million for each of the two expected Breaking Dawn movies.
Now that the money business is settled, we expect official word that Breaking Dawn will be divided into two movies to come any minute now. (Finally!)
Twilight's director, Catherine Hardwicke, will be pleased to hear Ashley and Kellan are staying on-board. In the midst of rumors that they could be swapped for new actors (ahem, just look at what happened to Rachelle Lefevre), Catherine said, "It would really break my heart if they were replaced, but it could happen. Things could turn ugly quickly."
She continued, "They have all these people and outside influences telling you what to do.They tell you to hold out for this much because you're such an important part of the franchise, and everyone is telling you to ask for more."
