Will Twilight Become Five Films?

breaking_dawn_cover_e.jpg

New Moon hasn't even been out yet for two weeks and Summit Entertainment is trying to figure out their next move in the Twilight franchise.

Translation: they're figuring out the money situation.

If the final book, Breaking Dawn is split into two films, that means R-Patz, K-Stew and TayTay will get a raise. And reports are speculating eight figure paychecks!

Personally, we don't think Kristen is worth that much, but whatevs.

So will Summit fork over more money?

They've remained mum on the situation, but we're guessing they'll eventually realize that they'll make their money back quickly. That is, if the Twilight craze hasn't fizzled out by then.

P.S. It's a little less than 7 months until Eclipse comes to the big screen, but who's counting?

    Enough is enough…
    and 5 is too many!



  2. 2

    ughh.
    great more twilight.

    harry potter all the way.



  3. 3

    YES YES YES!!!!!! MORE TWILIGHT PLEASE :)



  4. 4

    I'm not counting … hehehehe



  5. 5

    Well, I for one am ALREADY counting down to Eclipse!!!!! :)



  6. 6

    It's quite disgusting how much actors are paid. NOBODY is worth 8 figures. Even doctors don't make that much!!!

    Uhh who cares? I really don't mind seeing more Rob Pattinson so all is good!



  8. 8

    Hell yeah !!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  9. 9

    Perez I'm always so surprised at how you brag and gush over these novels/films. especially since Stephanie Meyer is such a devout Mormon/anti-gay supporter and considering also how much tithing she gives to her church that financially supports the ANTI gay movement. So weird on your part no?



  10. 10

    I AAAM!!!! stop criticizing kristen. so breaking dawn it for sure happening? ROB



  11. 11

    Huh. So i guess what BooBoo Stewart(Seth clearwater) said wasn't just "enthusiasm" according to Summit! He totally DID leak it months ago.



  12. 12

    Summit needs to make a decision and get going…Eclipse is finished and set for release and they don't even have the script ready for the last book! I personally loved Breaking Dawn and think it needs to be 2 movies!

    PS Perez lay off the Kristen bashing…I like her she…she seems real which is hard to find in Hollywood these days!

    whatever, all that fortune is not worth the fame.
    fame = no privacy, stalkers, no privacy, paps, no privacy…
    does anyone agree?



  14. 14

    there is not enough in the book to make 2 movies…. there is enough to make one and one is all we need



  15. 15

    WTF is your problem with that chick? What have you got against her?



  16. 16

    How can they even consider doing this? Breaking Dawn was an AWFUL novel in which NOTHING happened except for a mentally scarring birthing scene and a stupid vampire "debate".

    So many people have gotten on Warner Brothers' ass about splitting the last Harry Potter film into 2, saying that it is all about money, but they at least have plot gaps from previous movies they need to fill in and a LOT of new storyline to cover.

    Moral of this story: A split for Breaking Dawn would ONLY be an extra paycheck in the bank, end of story



  17. 17

    who's counting? wtf!



  18. 18

    -
    judging from the embarrasing poor quality of the first two films, both technically and dramatically, this will fail
    -
    geared towards fat, lonely girls aged 11-18 - the demographic for these movies will very quickly outgrow of them, much like a generation of fat, lonely girls outgrew boy bands



  19. 19

    Now I am convinced that Summit Entertainment is trying to copy Warner Brothers with the last book two part idea since Harry Potter has already declared the last book to be two movies. Twilight was fine at first, but now it just feels like it's a copy cat with Harry Potter since people are being all witch vs vampires.



  20. 20

    of course they would make 20 movies if it was possible

    it's not about making something worthwhile, beautiful nor artistic it's about $$$$$$ $$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ not even the fans matter



  21. 21

    i'm obsessed with the twilight saga and very annoying about how much they stick to the books, but i'm pretty sure breaking dawn could only be one movie. parts of the book become repetitive, like the wolf-thoughts , and are not that necessary to the story - they should just cut that all out and make it one 2 hour, 30 minute movie



  22. 22

    Kristen is NOT worth the money at all what so ever end of story



  23. 23

    OMG! I like sooooo totally hope so! My panties are completely soaked just thinking of the possibility!



  24. 24

    nonono!!!!
    breaking dawn needs to be one long ass film with an intermission
    don't split it into two movies fuck that!!!



  25. 25

    Honestly, I wonder how they'll make one of the WORST books I've ever read into a half decent movie. I had to force myself to finish Breaking Dawn, after being completely bored by Eclipse.
    Sooo sick of this Twilight *crap* 6 months ago.

    I admit I know nothing of the films or the books. By your post I assume the cast is under contract for 4 films. If the forth book has enough plot that it would be better presented in a two film format I say go for it.
    Although I assume none of the cast is anywhere near the poor house, if they get to renegotiate their contracts for the fifth film, they will make some really serious money off of Summit who up until now has made it off of them.



  27. 27

    Let's have a good old fashioned book burning…I'll bring the petrol tin…who wants to throw the first match? Toasted marshmarios for all!!!



  28. 28

    i think twilight is really stupid but i'll pay to go see taylor lautner with his shirt off!! :) )))



  29. 29

    They will. It means they'd make more money (in theory).



  30. 30

    Re: Mahima

    Agree!!



  31. 31

    Summit will make their decisions based on REVENUE.
    The entire Twilight thing is a money-making machine.



  32. 32

    Well i shure am counting down by days,hours,minutes, and seconds! I'm 27 and have 3 girls and i aint ashame to say I love Twilight Saga! I've seen New Moon more than three times and I aint tired of watching it.
    210 Days left



  33. 33

    pfffttt.
    they're just trying to copy harry potter.



  34. 34

    i swear they put this rumor to rest months ago and said its not being made into 2 movies.



  35. 35

    I'm counting. Yes, break Breaking Dawn into 2 films. It is for the fans, not for the critics. The actors do deserve the $.



  36. 36

    I think that…. Why make us wait for another when we already have to wait for 2 cuz New Moon came out! Im obessed with this whole series! Im sure thr smart enough to come up with a way to cut things out! But i beg them not to cut out the part where Bella attacks Jacob! (fave part!)



  37. 37

    Re: bev7894 – I dont think its stupid but i agree w/ the second part!



  38. 38

    Whatever they decide to do just get it over with quickly am tired of the twilight series.



  39. 39

    They are trying to suck the money out of every tween in the world. they are the blood suckers.



  40. 40

    I'm all for Robert Pattinson, he's gorgeous… but to say he deserves more than Kristen? She acts way better than he does. You need to get over your hatred for all people you're jealous of ass.



  41. 41

    How are they going to show Edward eating through Belle's uterus to get that baby out? So gross.



  42. 42

    Cash grab. That's all this is for Summit Entertainment (the studio that owns the rights to "Twilight").
    They're not concerned with how best to bring the final story to screen; they're concerned with how much money they can milk from the fans. Two separate movies equals two separate box office releases, two separate DVD releases & two separate merchandising deals. "Dawn" is a story full of non-action that can be told in 2 1/2 hours max. Splitting it into two different 2 hour movies is a load of shit.



  43. 43

    I said this when Twilight came out. I knew they would split the last book in two parts, especially since the last Harry Potter movie will be in two parts.

    Milk this bad boy for all it is worth. Who cares if the movies are mediocre and the books are passable, keep the Twi-tards happy!



  44. 44

    Oh and to add… there definitely isn't enough material to cover in BD to make it into two movies. That's dumb.



  45. 45

    Also, the title for the two films would be horrendous:

    "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Vol. 1" or "Part 1".

    Duuuuuuumb.



  46. 46

    Omg omg omg omg!! Can someone please recast Bella? She keeps ruining the movies.



  47. 47

    They could just call the first one "Twilight: Breaking" and "Twilight: Dawn" and then sell even more DVD packs and make more millions then they already have. I think the real issue isn't money. It's how the hell they are going to cast a baby who can control their facial features.



  48. 48

    they are going to probably split it into 2 just like they are doing it with harry potter



  49. 49

    wtf how could anyone stand reading the 4th book let alone watch two separate movies of it
    the first movie is just gonna be ed knocking up bella and the second movie is gonna be a freaking snooze fest as there is no action but only talking.



  50. 50

    Oh hell yes :)



  51. 51

    "Dawn" doesn't have enough story to split into 2 parts– I for one hope they
    get it filmed - over with an done.I have read all 4 books - they were ok — they need to get "Dawn" in a hurry anyway as their fan base will be on to other things and 2 yrs makes a BIG difference with teenagers



  52. 52

    i wouldnt doubt it that breaking dawn was two films..i think it should be because there is so much that happens in the last book that it would end up being a 5 hour movie for it to be told rightt!!

  53. Laury says – reply to this


    53

    Oh God, please make it stop!!!!! I can't take this madness anymore.



  54. 54

    They need to STOP copying Harry Potter. That book won't even work as two films. It can easily be made into one.



  55. 55

    I will admit I enjoyed the first three books but I'll openly say I would rather massage my nipples with cheese graters than watch a movie based on the 4th book. It was complete garbage.

    1 movie based on that pile of dung would be bad.
    2 movies based on it would be amazingly and utterly terribad.



  56. 56

    this is wrong i mean I LOVE TWILIGHT BOOKS AND ROBERT AND PETER AND JACKSON … but … breaking dawn it's not good and im not prepared to see kristen stewart soaked in blood NAKED … with a baby c'monn… it's stupid and i dont know the book was kinda stupid !



  57. 57

    i think we're all pretty much counting…lol…but what i want to know is, if Stephine Meyers is going to publish Midnight Sun, the 5th unfinished book in the series…they were supposed to say something about it on Oprah the other week when she was on there, but i never heard anything….hmm???



  58. 58

    The only reason that they want to make Breaking Dawn into two films is purely because they know just how successful the split is going to be for Hary Potter and The Deathly Hallows. Breaking Dawn wouldn't work as well as a split film, nor would there be any point in it being a split film. There's just not enough within the story for it to justify being made into two films. Honestly, the sooner this craze passes and people start to realise just how amazing Harry Potter is and just how ridiculous Twilight is (also, as someone said, Perez, why do you big up SMeyer when she's a mormon, who are anti-gay? Just a thought…), the better.



  59. 59

    Re: Mahima
    Harry Potter AND Dark Shadows starring Johnny Depp! YES!
    Now there's a great (vampire) franchise!
    F Twilight!!!



  60. 60

    more twilight? YES PLEASE!
    more perez? YES PLEASE!
    life would suck without either!



  61. 61

    Another bad movie.



  62. 62

    im countin lol 211 days left!!!!!



  63. 63

    leave kristen the hell alone. she's the only one that can actually act in that entire franchise, except for michael sheen. and she's hot too



  64. 64

    TO EACH THEIR OWN BUT, GOD I HOPE NOT.

  65. iLove says – reply to this


    65

    People who hate on twilight are just as annoying. Better yet, more annoying. No one's throwing twilight down your throats. You dont like it, then dont watch it and dont read about it. Seriously if i dont like something im not going to waste my time constantly writing about how much i hate it.



  66. 66

    As much as I'd love to see the whole book on screen at once, that would be a looooooooooooooooooooong movie. Plus, it makes a lot of sense for it to be two movies. They can really fit more of the book's details in that way. Plus, anyone who has read Breaking Dawn knows that it's broken down into 3 different "books". Bella's perspective, Jake's perspective, and back to Bella's again. Theres soooooooooooooo much going on in it - the wedding, the pregnancy, the baby, Bella becoming a vampire, Jake imprinting on Renesme, the Cullen's battling the Volturi to stay "alive..". One movie would be too intense, and it would be upsetting because they seriously have to cut a lot out to shorten it. Two movies is the way to go. Plus, more to look foward to!!!!!!!!



  67. 67

    Re: iLove – Well said!!!!!



  68. 68

    And one more thing that I forgot in my long speech…. Like her or not, gotta admit, Kristen Stewart plays one heck of a Bella Swan! :)



  69. 69

    omg didn't know it was so SOON!!!! I'M SO EXCITED!!!!



  70. 70

    sounds like a copy cat of the HP films. but the thing is harry potter is actually a good storyline and the acting/actors are world class.

    twilight is all about "good looking" guys



  71. 71

    PLEASE NO!!! I'm a big Twilight Fan but there is no need for 2 additional movies. I'm getting tired of the series, they are not Harry Potter. Besides BD is not that big of a book that they need to split it up. If they make 2 movies I will wait for the DVD or HBO. Scummit is just trying to make more $$$$$$ I hope the fans disappoint them.



  72. 72

    YEEEYYY, yes yes make it 2!! or 3!!!



  73. 73

    With all the money there making on this waste of film maybe they could pay to get the entire cast some acting lessons…



  74. 74

    I hope not! I can't wait for the bullshit to end..



  75. 75

    That would be really dumb. Just cause Harry Potter is doing it they want to jump on too. Sorry but J.K. actually took a long time and made ALOT happen in her last HP book. Breaking Dawn is just them sitting in a house for most of the book. They leave so much out of the movies anyway so its pointless. And they will not get 8 figure paychecks EACH, noone gets that.



  76. 76

    Re: Carrie Prejean Masturbates – Uhhhhh, since when did you have inside info on whether she is up to date on her tithing? Plus, a mormon homophobe she may be but her books are very entertaining. Who said she's a homophobe anyway?



  77. 77

    Breaking Dawn was an awful book, I wouldn't see one movie let alone two!



  78. 78

    If they don't make it 5 movies, then Summit better not leave shit out! The fans will be in an uproar! Too much critical stuff happens in Breaking Dawn to leave anything out. I would personally be devastated! And these actors deserve the bonus…they didn't get paid a fraction of what the franchise is making! Keep the movies coming please!



  79. 79

    Yes! :D I so hope this happens. We need more than 4 Twilight movies! 5 will be good. Unless…they make another for another book from the universe???



  80. 80

    I'm counting huh? :) hahaha, hate me for that!



  81. 81

    Re: Greengo84 – Being Morman implies it implicitly…not a Dr. Suess book



  82. 82

    Re: blacklily.of.the.valley – Exactly!
    .Re: Greengo84 – Read the comment from the person mentioned above. It's pretty straight forward.



  83. 83

    cnt wait to c Eclipse!! i jst care to c taylor lautner ;) ….do u thnk there gonna make a movie for Midnight Sun(Twilight Five) if shephenie m. publishes it??



  84. 84

    yesss cant wait until eclipse
    personally, i liked the books and i enjoy the movies. so we'll see what they do–i dont really care about the actors too much

  85. psyko says – reply to this


    85

    Five movies for the Twilight franchise? WTF??? New Moon isn't even that good, it sucked big time. The three leading actors' acting were so lame and cheesy and they're planning to give them an 8-digit salary??? That's crap! Before they could think of crative two movies for the last book, they should think of a better script, train their leading actors to REALLY act and make sure that the movie doesn't run for two hours full of shit. The only thing I liked about New Moon was Dakota Fanning.



  86. 86

    Re: psyko – for the love of god perez.
    shut the fuck up about kstew. yea yea, you love pattinson. we get it.
    but seriously? you're ridiculous. it doesn't matter if you're kidding. so she's not mary fucking sunshine. she's perfectly fine and does the best she can considering the series [and it's creator] is total and complete crap.

    concerning the prospect of five films-
    no no no no. breaking dawn was hands down one of the worst written books ive ever read. it lacks material for two films; in fact it hardly has enough to substantiate one alone.



  87. 87

    Oh they will make breaking dawn! New Moon has pulled in $400 million dollars in a little over two weeks. Paying these kids 10 to lets say 20 million is nothing in the long run.



  88. 88

    I think they should get David Cronenburg to make this one. I'm not a twilight fan but i would totally see it if Cronenburg did this one. LOL



  89. 89

    5 is too much. they should stick to four and just have breaking dawn longer, i really dont think anyone would mind that?



  90. 90

    I love Twilight, and yes I am a Twi-hard but…. I hated Breaking Dawn.
    It will make the most ridiculous movie ever if you think about it. They need to get Stephenie Meyer to go back and re-write the last book for the final movie. I don't care honestly if they make one movie or two for the final one, but it needs to be good.



  91. 91

    The more the better! I already have money saved up to go to see Eclipse!!



  92. 92

    WTF!? how dare summit rip off warner bros' idea?



  93. 93

    lol why? breaking dawn was a joke. not nearly enough to make one movie with, let alone two.



  94. 94

    for all the people that say breaking dawn has a lot of information to be packed into one movie… you are obviously fooling yourselves… that book was a bunch of crap, and the pregnancy scene… no one wants to actually see Kristen Stewart like that. let's just make a 2 and a half movie which won't live up to anyone's standards anyways and let the demographic that this book was geared toward move on to the next pop phenom…



  95. 95

    Re: nonionas – Yeah!!!!! I've been thinking this too! Three hours isn't THAT long… the Godfather and Titanic did it, so why not Breaking Dawn?



  96. 96

    This is old news!!



  97. 97

    Breaking Dawn was by far the WORST out of the whole series. They have this whole build up for the Volturi to come and kill Reneesme and they prepare Bella with her lame power to protect her inner self and such, and then Volturi come, find out Reneesme isn't full vampire and they leave. It was incredibly crappy and it was as if she rushed through writing the book. It doesn't even deserve to be a movie because it will be Rated R if they decide to make it a movie. They should just stop at Eclipse, because that's the best book.



  98. 98

    hahahah this is soooo stupid

    FIRST PART: the wedding oh what a pretty scene! / the honey moon: B&E fuck and she is pregnant the next day / a lot of shit from jacob / the baby is born bella is a vampire END
    SECOND PART: omg the vulturi want to kill us!!! what should we do? lets invite our vampire friends (who nobody knew) to protect us / the vulturi arrive: what a pretty baby, ok she is aright, byebye cullens!
    THE END

    what a piece of shit



  99. 99

    Breaking Dawn was an amazing book. For those of you who don't know, the book is divided into 3 sections. This movie HAS to be 2 parts. It's not a copy of Harry Potter, it's the way the book reads. You can't fit all the information in that 700 page book into one 90 minute movie. I am crazy excited for them to make Breaking Dawn, but they really need a bad-ass director for it. None of these crummy directors that never get it right. Breaking Dawn requires the utmost technology and care, and Summit better take it seriously and do it right.



  100. 100

    Are you kidding me? What a copycat. The last Harry Potter movie is split into two movies. Keep your stuff original. Oh and HARRY POTTER > twilight.
