“Breaking Dawn” To Be Broken Down To Two Movies?
The “Twilight” movies are turning into a saga for real. While the word on the street for a while was that the films would be a trilogy, Summit has just announced that it will be bringing the fourth book in the series, Breaking Dawn, to the big screen. And the movie studio may be doing it in two parts. Huh, this is all about telling the story the best way possible and has nothing to do with the fact that “New Moon” grossed $481 million in the past two weeks, right? But as Variety points out, making “Breaking Dawn” a two-parter would have a high price tag. They’d have to renegotiate with Stephenie Meyer, as well as with Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, who all know that they can ask for the pie in the sky. Folks predict that they could finagle eight-figure paychecks for the fifth film. What do you think—would you rather see “Breaking Dawn” in one fell swoop, or savor it slowly? [Variety]
