‘Breaking Dawn’ Contract Dispute Over: Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz And Rest Of Cullens Will Return

OK, we’ll concede, we jumped the gun a bit last week when we talked about recasting Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz. But no need to fear, because we’ve got the official word from Summit today that Ashley, Kellan and the rest of the Cullen gang are all going to come back for “Breaking Dawn.”

However, the press release does not state whether the cast has been signed on for one or two films, or confirm whether the novel will be split. That was the basis of the rumors that Ashley and Kellan would leave, with sites claiming the two young stars were vying for $1.5 million to $4 million a piece for the second installment.

“This is all we can confirm right now. No word on one or two [movies],” a studio source told us.

But what Summit has confirmed should warm the hearts of all “Twilight” fans. In addition to Ashley and Kellan, Peter Facinelli, Jackson Rathbone, Elizabeth Reaser, Nikki Reed and Billy Burke will be back for more, alongside Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.

Don’t stress too much about the fact Summit hasn’t confirmed one or two films yet, because if the cast has signed on for more, they’ve at least probably signed on for the option of two films, and we’re assuming the number of “Breaking Dawn” films being released will follow on this press release’s heels soon.

Are you glad everyone is back on board for “Breaking Dawn”?
