The latest film in the Twilight series, Eclipse, will be out in theatres at the end of June. That means that filming for the last part of the saga, Breaking Dawn, is all set to start filming, but there have been some setbacks.
Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz, or Alice and Emmett Cullen, want more money. They originally signed on for three movies, and in order to stick around for the fourth, they require roughly $4 million each. That’s kind of a ballsy move, considering how this series isn’t afraid to replace actors. Catherine Hardwick, director of Twilight, said on the topic:
“It would really break my heart if they were replaced, but it could happen. Things could turn ugly quickly.”
The first thing that comes to mind when considering the possibility of two members of the Cullen family being recast is the intense grieving the fangirls will go through. I didn’t see New Moon, but I have such fond memories of the Twilight midnight premiere, like when Edward and Bella were just about to kiss for the first time, and the theatre was absolutely silent, then when the kiss happened this girl let out an actual moan. And yeah, that’s just for Edward, but every member of the Cullen family has his or her own special following, and I can’t wait to see how this turns out.
As for Breaking Dawn, I don’t really care if some people get recast as long as it has the scene where Edward rips into Bella’s womb with his teeth to get the baby out. That is the only thing I care about.
