ROBERT Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are hoping to squeeze as much money as they can out of the Twilight franchise.
And who can blame them?
According to a report in the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper, the trio have joined forces to negotiate contracts for what may be two films based on the Breaking Dawn novel in author Stephenie Meyer‘s vampire saga.
Based on the box office success of Twilight and New Moon and the likely success of Eclipse, Pattinson, Stewart and Lautner will reportedly be able to demand paychecks well into eight figures for the next two films.
Pattinson, 23, has previously said that he had agreed to star in Breaking Dawn.
“I have committed to the fourth one, Breaking Dawn,” the British actor said in May this year.
“But I don’t know quite when Summit [the studio] is going to shoot it because of my schedule.”
And in September, Rob hinted again at the possibility of a fourth Twilight flick.
“If everything goes as scheduled, in January I’ll be filming Bel Ami in Paris for 3 months, after which I’ll start filming the fourth and last Twilight movie Breaking Dawn,” he told a French magazine.
“I’m pretty much booked for the next two years. I’ve got one week at the end of the summer to see my friend, whom in the end, I’ll forget even exists. It’s Crazy!”
Lautner, 17, recently gave his opinion on the possibility of a Breaking Dawn movie.
“I’m sure it would be different,” he said. “It was definitely a surprise for me when I read the book.
“But we’re just trying to take it one movie at a time, and nothing’s been confirmed yet on the fourth, so we’re just staying focused on Eclipse at the moment.”
