Salary disputes could ax two Twilight actors

Why haven't we heard an announcement from Summit Entertainment about Breaking Dawn casting, and whether Stephenie Meyer's novel will be broken into two movies or kept as one? You can blame two Twilight cast members for that, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Oh, you don't have to worry about Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, as the studio is close to finalizing their deals, and they'll all be getting big raises to return. Same for director Bill Condon, who's already signed to film two Breaking Dawn movies, which would be shot back to back.

But Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene—who've played Emmett Cullen and Alice Cullen—are both looking for big scores, now that Twilight has turned into a billion-dollar franchise. We hope they know what they're doing, because as an inside source says, "We may have a situation where one of them is thrown out on the street to make a point."

Remember—holding out backfired on Rachelle Lefevre, who'd played Victoria in Twilight and New Moon only to see her role go to Bryce Dallas Howard in Eclipse because her reps played hardball on money and scheduling. Although multiple sources say they'd be shocked if the fifth film doesn't happen, Summit is still holding out the option of simply doing one Breaking Dawn.

What do you think? Should Summit pony up so Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene can return? Or should the franchise go ahead without them?
