Summit Entertainment plans to adapt “Breaking Dawn,” the fourth book in the “Twilight Saga,” as two separate movies has hit a snag. Secondary players, including Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz, are demanding bigger truckloads of cash for their participation.
Greene and Lutz are said to be asking for ten times the amount they earned on the first Twilight film. While the Summit has not officially commented on the issue, insiders speculate that the studio may replace the actors (HA! HA!).
Twilight Saga mainstays Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner have all locked down new stupidly lucrative deals to star in the two films, making it harder for Greene, Lutz, et all to get a bigger stake in the franchise.
Greene stars in Dark Castle’s upcoming Paranormal Activity ripoff inspired ghost story The Apparition. Lutz can be seen in Platinum Dunes’ recently released A Nightmare On Elm Street remake.
The Breaking Dawn films are scheduled to shoot in the fall with release dates set for November 2011 and Summer 2012 respectively.
Colin Farrell is set to star opposite milfy Toni Collette in DreamWorks’ upcoming Fright Night reboot. The 33-year-old Irish actor will play the part of Jerry Dandridge, the suave vampire who moves in next door to geeky horror fan Charley Brewster’s (Anton Yelchin) house to feed on fresh meat and fuck his mom.
Farrell can be seen in the fantasy-themed features The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and Neil Jordan’s soon-to-be released Ondine, but Fright Night marks his first foray into horror.
Collette, who plays Charlie’s mom, currently headlines Showtime’s “The United States of Tara.” She also starred in M. Night Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense.
The original Fright Night was a hit in 1985 and is included on Clatto’s list of 15 Vampire Movies That Won’t Make You Gay.
