Twilight stars Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz are reportedly trying to make a cash-grab after it was announced the last novel Breaking Dawn would be split into two parts which re-opened negotiations to sign all the actors for a fifth installment, according to The Hollywood Reporter:
“We may have a situation where one of them is thrown out on the street to make a point,” says a source close to the dealmaking.
So are we headed for a recasting on the final “Twilight”?
There is precedent for such a tactic. After the success of the first film, Summit axed Rachelle Lefevre, who played Victoria, in part because her reps played hardball on money and scheduling. (Bryce Dallas Howard got the job instead.) Now, two films into the series, even the minor Twilighters (Lutz in particular) have become sought-after stars, so it makes sense they’d want to be paid more for the final film. But we’re told that the offers from Summit — which are said to be at least 10 times what the actors made on the first movie — were deemed “offensive” given the mega-money the franchise has generated.
This is an especially retarded move considering people with vaginas tell me these two are barely in the films and no one without Robert Pattinson’s pubic hair in a locket even knows their names. To prove my point, at least 75% of you will comment with “Who?”, “What?” or “I’d do that chick in the butt.” (It’s like we finish each other sentences.)
