The fourth installment of the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn, which is scheduled to be released in November of 2011, is having a few casting problems. Summit Pictures is having a difficult time signing some of the cast members to the film. Don’t worry, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner are in the final stages of negotiation to reprise their roles, but a few of the other actors are holding out for a pay raise.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources on the movie say Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen) and Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen) are holding out for more money. The word is the studio will not give in to their demands. In the previous Twilight movie, New Moon, actress Rachelle Lefevre, who played Victoria in the first Twilight movie, held out for more money and was replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard. It seems the studio is not willing to budge. Push the studio they push back.
In recent years, we have seen similar situations with big movies like Iron Man 2, where Terrence Howard supposedly held out for more money and was replaced by Don Cheadle. Iron Man 2 didn’t lose a beat and moved on.
Young actors who are holding out for more money take note; ransom studios only when you’re the main character in the flick. You are replaceable. Fall on your sword, call the studio and immediately work out a deal for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. Don’t make the fatal mistake of thinking you’re bigger than the movie.
