Late last night Summit Entertainment confirmed what Twilighters have assumed for a while: Breaking Dawn, the fourth book in Stephenie Meyer's series, will be split into two movies.
Fans can breathe a sigh of relief at the announcement, which also confirms that all the main cast members will be returning for both movies — yes, even Ashley Greene (Alice) and Kellan Lutz (Emmett). more on Summit's news, plus fan reaction >> Posted 06.11.10 by reelz
The "divorce" between Michael Bay and Megan Fox went very quickly, with Paramount declining Fox's option for Transformers 3, even after Fox was spotted doing some preliminary work of the upcoming sequel a couple weeks ago. Fox's representatives told People that "it was [Fox's] decision not to return" and not the advisement from Bay that sent Fox packing.
Either way, with Fox moving on, it looks like Gemma Arterton (Clash of the Titans and the upcoming Prince of Persia) could be a contender to replace Fox. Arterton won't be alone, however. who else is vying for the role? >> Posted 05.21.10 by Ryan
Perhaps with the fan uproar over the "Victoria" cast change fresh in the studio's mind, it appears Summit has decided to negotiate in the salary dispute with Twilight actors Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene. The New York Post is reporting that when the two signed their contracts last night for the two-part The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn movie, they got close to their asking price. get details about the actors' deal >> Posted 05.19.10 by reelz
Although nothing has been confirmed when it comes to 2011's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn following in Harry Potter's footsteps and being split into two movies, it seems salary disputes are already underway among the cast. More surprisingly, it's not superstars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, or Taylor Lautner kicking up a fuss — it's supporting Cullen actors Kellan Lutz (Emmett) and Ashley Greene (Alice). more on the salary dispute >> Posted 05.12.10 by reelz
Today, Summit Entertainment surprised Twilighters with three anticlimactic stills from the upcoming movie The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. The new images are nothing we haven't seen before, showing the Cullens looking perplexed, Bella brooding, and Edward and Jacob mid face-off.
The Cullens are strangely color coordinated, and look like they should be in a denim commercial rather than gearing up to fight some badass immortals. continue reading >> Posted 03.31.10 by reelz
At the London premiere of Robert Pattinson's latest movie Remember Me, Digital Spy spoke with Harry Potter nemesis Draco Malfoy, played by Tom Felton. The young actor was excited to talk about the two-movie split of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows saying, "We have all the freedom to stick to the books exactly and revel in them and enjoy every page."
Felton also talked about his next movie entitled The Apparition, a horror/thriller he's been shooting with Eclipse star Ashley Greene in Berlin. "It's nice to step out of the four walls of Hogwarts," he said.

Michael Sheen, the actor behind New Moon's Volturi vampire Aro, recently spoke to iesb.net about his role in The Twilight Saga. When asked about shooting his scenes in Italy, he said:
I would love to share my favorite experiences about Italy. Unfortunately, I can't because I didn't shoot any of it in Italy. The problem with doing interiors is that interiors can be filmed anywhere. So, next time, I'll have it in my contract that I have to do at least one exterior, in any film I do. My favorite experience about Italy was getting a text from Chris Weitz saying, "It's lovely here, isn't it?"
On the subject of being one of the older cast members on set, he politely sang the praises of his co-stars.
I think it's a good job that I was playing a millennia-old vampire because that's exactly how it felt to be on a set with people as beautiful as Robert [Pattinson], Kristen [Stewart], and Ashley [Greene], and all that lot. I felt like the old, decrepit uncle who's just hanging around, trying to get in with the cool kids. But, that helped with the character, so it was fun.
Good answer, Mr. Sheen — there's no way you, or anyone, can compete with teen king Robert Pattinson. We're not sure exactly how long his reign will last, but we're betting he's got a few years left in him yet. Posted 09.25.09 by reelz
It seems as if the intense fight choreography for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is now starting to take its toll, especially on the fragile humans playing the vampires.
Just two weeks after reporting a story on star Ashley Greene getting "battered and bruised on set," MTV Movies wrote that Jackson Rathbone was taken to the hospital on Tuesday after suffering an unspecified injury while on set. A rep for Summit Entertainment spoke with the press, saying that the injury was not serious.
Actor Jackson Rathbone of The Twilight Saga movies was slightly injured yesterday [September 22] during a fight scene rehearsal. As a precaution, he was driven to the hospital and checked out by a doctor.... He's fine and is back at work on the set of Eclipse today.
Greene told MTV that despite the pain, it's all for the good of the movie.
It's going really smoothly. It's going really well.... We're all working really hard and learning how to kick butt. I don't know if you've seen recent pictures, but I have bruises all over my body. It's those wires. It looks like a hand mark on my arm, and it's definitely from wires.

New pictures from the set of Eclipse have surfaced, including Carlisle and the wolves and Robert Pattinson, Ashley Greene, and Peter Facinelli on set. Of all the cast, Facinelli could easily pass for a real-life vampire, just look at his pale complexion and platinum blond hair — does he remind you of anyone from vampire TV shows past?
In addition to these new images, the Examiner also has a report round-up from last week's filming. Fan-favorite highlights from the fifth week of Eclipse include director David Slade's tweet about a Bella-Jacob kiss on a mountain, and images of some creepy newborn vampires submerged in water.
Do you think David Slade looks like he's doing a good job bringing the epic, romance-fueled movie to the big screen? Let us know your thoughts in the comments. Posted 09.21.09 by reelz
