There's a news report to say that Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene are not happy with their offer on salaries to make Breakin Dawn (2 films) so it is rumored that new actors may be found i really hope not, lets hope they can sort it out!!
You are free to disagree with me of course. But one thing you're not free to do is question whether I'm a die-hard fan because you disagree with me. For one thing, I spend several hours a day at least on this site and have for ages. For another, I'm here on this site and in this group commenting A LOT. Not as much as a few others, but certainly more than you. So you're NOT free to question my devotion to Twilight, as you know absolutely nothing about me or my dedication as a fan, or about the amount of my life I spend on a daily basis discussing this wonderful series. No offense, but I've spent fourteen hours just today on my computer writing, reading, and blogging Twilight.
I've been all over this salary dispute since the story came out in THR this morning. I've been on every reputable entertainment site out there today trying to get the real scoop. The consensus among journalists and insiders is that if Kellan and Ashley continue to hold out and make ridiculous salaray demands, the reality is that Summit is going to make the business decision to recast one or both roles. If those two love being part of Twilight as much as they say they do, they'd better come to the bargaining table with a reasonable figure for Summit to look at.
I'm not saying I like it, I'm simply saying that's the reality of the situation according to every news source I've looked at today.
As a fan, I'm mad at both the actors and Summit. Summit for being so dense that they didn't take care of these contracts months ago. And Kellan and Ashley because their salary dispute is holding up development on the fifth film. As a devoted fan who pays their salary along with all the other fans by seeing the movies multiple times at the theatre, I'm peeved about that. No offense, but in this economy, there are people who can't even afford to go to the movies and these two are bellyaching about making two million dollars each for a few months work? Oh, and they'll be famous from doing that work on top of being paid millions and being offered other jobs because of their fame? No, $2 mil is certainly not good enough--they're demanding 4 times that!!!!!!!!!! Reality check please.
With that being said, you should absolutely boycott the movie if that's what you choose to do.
I personally think that Ashley and Kellan ought to be thanking their lucky stars that Twilight happened to them so that they are actually being offered other acting gigs and magazine covers and all the hype that goes with being part of this franchise. Their careers have taken off because of these movies and fans like me. For Kellan to have such a minor role and to be demanding more than half of what one of the three stars is making seems greedy, in my opinion. For Ashley to demand twice as much as her co-star Nikki is making when Nikki will be onscreen a significant amount of time more than Ashley in the fifth film seems greedy, in my opinion.
But you're right, I don't know what is really going on. On the other hand, just as I don't know neither do you. So if I have no way of knowing with certainty that Summit isn't just being greedy, then you also have no way of knowing that the actors aren't being greedy either. So for us to assume that there is not a perfect reason why Summit is refusing to pay them the amount they're demanding is not cool at all.
I adore Kellan. I have about a bajillion pics of him on my computer. And I love Ashley. I'm probably one of the only people in America who actually rented that awful movie Autumn Moon and forced myself to watch the whole horrendous thing just because Ashley was in it. But they are both demanding a whopping pay raise in comparison to what the stars of the movie are getting.
That's not just my random speculation, that's fact that is being reported by at least a dozen reputable news and entertainment sources.
You know, I am a bigger person then this. I not going to squable over this with someone that thinks they are superior to me because they spend more time on a web site......that does not make me any less devoted to Twilight then you are. Who are you to judge them or their decisions or to say what they are lucky for? Good Luck is all I can say to you and oh do I wish there was an ignore feature!!
You must not be a die hard fan then to purpose something as this. I not trying to challenge the fact that you love Twilight more then I do. But to say something like that..... I can see how you see it as she is not around in BD a lot but Alice is partly the reason they win at the end because every claim that was made was shot down with the arival of Nahuel.
Yes, asking more money then the lead roles, I can understand how that can be preceived. But do we really know what is going on that is making the two ask for that amount? No, we do not know what is going on that set or in their negotiations. So, for us to assume there is not a perfect reason they are asking for that amount is not cool at all. Maybe they were way underpaid the last two films?
I sorry I stand by my decision for BD.... They change the two actors and I will boycot BD as well as make a big deal over it. It will destroy the movie in my eyes to change those two characters last minute. I guess I trying to look at if from every point of veiw.
Sounds like Summit is being the greedy ones while they rake in the dough while the actors are the ones that really do the work. I understand the company does the effects, but those people taking the time out of their life to make a movie for us to enjoy.... Think of it that way!!
YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME...... Another change in actors would screw it all up for us in the final movie. I can not beleive they would not just step it up and pay them more for what they are doing. IDIOTS is what I think they are if they replace any of the lesser Vampires. I was COMPLETELY pissed off when they changed Victoria because she so does not look the same at all from Twilight to New Moon....but what can I do, I am just a TWEAK....
Even though I am a die hard TWEAK, I would boycot the last film if they change Alice and Emmet!! I can not see how they can make Alice or Emmet be a lesser role. Emmet does not have a lot of lines, but over all he is still important to the plot of the movies. Alice played a HUGE role in New Moon....her a lesser vampire, I think not. Like I said I will boycot the movie and wait for it to be released on DVD if they change those actors and make into one movie only. Either give us the glory of it all or nothing at all is what I say!!
I can not beleive that Summit the company that is producing the Twilight Saga's are actually talking about replacing the actress/actor that plays Alice & Emmet for Breaking Dawn!!! If they do that I am going to BOYCOT BD. It would ruin the whole series of films to change them for the last one. Is it not enough that they totally screwed up on Victoria?? I SAY FIRE SUMMIT AND GET ANOTHER COMPANY TO BACK THE DIRECTOR!!
I agree wiht Shannon..if they are demanding that much (wich we are not sure)..it's not ok..The actors have to know that they will lose funs if they don't make in the films because of the money they are asking..so if that's true..it means that they don't care about us..the funs that are going to theatres more than one time, and buy the dvd's..etc.
It is a fact that all of as will be soooo disapointed...if the actors changes..(we all are because of Victoria), but if that happens because of the actors..of their ego's..is their fault, they will lose a lot more after..not only the money on BD.If it's summit's fault..then you could boicot summit for that..but until we do not know the truth..there's no point on speculating..
Whay should the other actors suffer from us boicoting BD if the fault is not there's?if somebody's ego grown "over night" and they can't get enought?
Let's hope and pray..that the cast will not change..just like what happend with muse..at first they said that will not be on E soundtrack..and after all..they have the leading song.
i think even if alice and emmett are not in the movie that much, i think they will add parts to it to make it seem like they are in it, what i mean is i think we will see clips of jasper and alice searching for the other vamp child, in south america, otherwise people who dont read the books but just watch the movies will have no idea why or where alice and jasper have shot off to.
Whatever the real story is, I hope they all come to an agreement soon. The fans and the rest of the cast should not be made to suffer because of this dispute. I hope it's the agents and not the actors themselves who are getting so full of themselves! I always thought they were doing it for their love of the saga?
