Original Twilight Director Weighs In On Lutz And Greene's Salary Disputes

Yeah, it's pretty obvious.

Those two need to can it or their asses are getting replaced!

As Twilight co-stars Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene continue to negotiate their salaries for the fourth film in the shiteous franchise, Breaking Dawn, the original film's director, Catherine Hardwicke, hopes that the two dumbasses tread very lightly while they battle it out with execs!

She says:

"You get all of these outside influences telling you you should hold out for this much because you're such an important part of the franchise. Possibly, Rachelle and Ashley and Kellan might not even be all that involved. They have all the other people telling them things and a lot of stuff can get mishandled, like what happened with Rachelle. There's so many possible misunderstandings. It breaks my heart. It could turn ugly. Do [these actors] deserve more money? Probably they do, on one level. But if everybody make so much money then… it's complicated. What a mess!"

What she's really trying to say is: Don't get greedy, you two! The studio can easily find people just as pretty, just as incapable of acting, and just as sparkly who will gladly take your parts for a much smaller paycheck!!

Tisk, tisk.

Who wants to place bets on whose getting cut first? And would U be that sad to see them go??

  1. 1

    I just saw the first film in the series the other day, so maybe the play a bigger role in the consecutive ones … but to me, they were barely in it and so I could not care less if it was someone else playing those parts … it's true that by the 4th film audiences may be used to seeing their faces in those roles … but it wouldn't be any major detriment to the movie if they were re-cast.



  2. 2

    I want millions of dollars too!!!



  3. 3

    Ashely is a nice piece of bum.



  4. 4

    Since when did you think the franchise was "shiteous?"

    You're so full of shit, Perez.



  5. 5

    all actors and actresses are overpaid anyway…….how about one of em live a day in my life, making $16/hour, then bitch about what they don't have……..



  6. 6

    Ashley's part is big in the 4th book! Kellan's part is not as big, but I'd rather see him stay because he doesn't have that student wig on that Ashley does.



  7. 7

    They are both expendable…Kellan fit the role prefectly, but its not so hard to be a big, beefy guy with 3 lines a movie. Ashley although a cute girl, isnt really "alice" to me anyway…A little salary bump I can understand, but lets be honest here, they are both eye candy and little more.



  8. 8

    The movies are *just* ok. They should take what they can get and just shut the hell up already.



  9. 9

    ashley will go 1st, she's expendable. But then again, they both are.



  10. 10

    You know… I think because in the book, their roles are much more prevalent than in the films. Maybe they are thinking that because their character is bigger in the books… they should get paid more even though it's cut drastically in the films! Either way… they better watch it!

  11. StayC says – reply to this

    there's a reason these two are asking for more… they deserve more money b/c their roles grow tremendously in the 3rd and 4th books, more power to them and good luck! Summit can afford to give them more money.



  12. 12

    I'm not sure with the valtori (not sure that's spelt right) war coming up they will have bigger roles I hope they make a deal because it just won't be the same… Tho it is the last movie(s) so the fans will just get over it right??? Hmmm

    I really like them, but they are going to blow their careers if they let the saga go. I like Ashley a lot and can not a imagine another Alice, so I will be disappointed if she doesn't get her shit together. As for Kellan, I don't want him to change, but he really isn't a huge part of the saga.



  15. 15

    I bow down to you for this post. These people are so freaking greedy! Everyone acting in this film is cringe worthy. None of the deserve praise for their performances. Kristen Stewart doesn't have a talented bone in her body. She got lucky and jumped on the bad actor train. That's why these movies get boo'd when the audience isn't filled with teenage girls. These movies are being made for the sole purpose of making money, what the hell ever happened to actual film making? Also… four movies in four years? WTF? They're popping them out like Michelle Dugger. That's a recipe for disaster. The worst part is, people won't care that this isn't art anymore, and these people are going to rack in the billions.



  16. 16

    maybe they can be replaced by other actors for less?
    *
    oh yeah I hate you MArio, you big tooth F*cker



  17. 17

    They do kind of resemble the characters in the book, although Alice in tiny in the books - like under 5 feet. Summet makes so much $ off of those movies they should just fork over more to them. I could see getting rid of the original Victoria. Bryce actually is more like the Victoria in the books.



  18. 18

    Isn't it obvious? Ashley Green would get cut first, if only because she disappears for almost the entire last installment with the Jasper character to round up vampires for the final showdown. And if Kellan Lutz wouldn't toe the line after that, he'd likely be next. Twilight is much more ruled by girl than boy viewers, so they'll recast the girl first…



  19. 19

    Nooooooo ! Ashley Greene HAS to be Alice. It's just the way things are supposed to be ! First Rachelle and now this?? We are used to Kelan and Ashley summit should better not do anything stupid. !



  20. 20

    I get why Ashley is asking for more money cause she has a big role in the movie outside of the 3 main characters but Kellan even though he is hot dosent really have any lines like in new moon he said like 5 words and that was it! And since when did u think it was shiteous Perez?



  21. 21

    Everyone is saying that those two are out of line but if it were you! You would expect a big raise in your salary. This franchise is making enough money and should pay these actors more money.



  22. 22

    They don't have that big of roles in the film. They're lucky to even have a career, they both kinda suck at the roles they play… theres a lot of aspiring actors out there that would dream to get their foot in the door the way that these two did…

    They're screwed with any future offers that are decent… they are holding up a movie that is huge… because they're being greedy. Why do you need that much money? Why dont you give the extra you make and hand it back to your fans. We're the reason you guys are famous, am I wrong?

    No one is going to hire them into a movie now. Demanding too much for what they do, or can do! Making everyone wait for something stupid.



  23. 23

    They're not going anywhere. Replacing Rachelle was barely anything because she had no lines until Eclipse (except the introduction in Twilight). Ashley Greene is much more important in the series as her character has had a lot more face time. Kellan, meh– he's much more easily replaced imo but neither of them will be.



  24. 24

    Id rather have them payed more than being replaced for the last movie! Plus look how much summit rakes in for the the twilight saga. She IS Alice, Kellen fits the role perfectly they both do. Why are you calling it shiteous? You know you go apeshit over it. They are going to have a bigger role in eclipse and breaking dawn any of you that read the books would know that!



  25. 25

    Re: DaisyHalt – It's not about the money the movies make. They have other things and people to pay than just the actors. Specially when they have small rolls when it comes to the movies.
    I think it was cruel and stupid they replaced Rachelle. Bryce looks like a tool in Eclipse. I doubt I'll even see it now. I've put too much effort into being a true fan, and everything has hit the fan.



  26. 26

    I think you are bipolar, Perez. One second you worship them, the next you call the films "shiteous." They are in no way better than the books. I will give you that. With the amount of money Summit is making, and the amount of money all of the other actors are being paid, they are doing the right thing here, in my opinion. Peter, Elizabeth, Bryce, and Jackson are all PAID HUUGE for their roles, so why should Ashley and Kellan not be as well? They won't replace them, and if they do, the films will be a bigger joke than they already are. Replacing Rachelle with Bryce was enough. They need to leave the cast alone, pay them all what they deserve, and keep it moving.



  27. 27

    Kellan has to stay, he's hot.
    Ashley can be replaced, just keep Kellan!

    xoxo!



  28. 28

    you always trash the "twilight" franchise - yet you always put clips of the new movie Eclipse up - you are so freakin stupid - how about - draw a line in the sand and pick a side…you douche



  29. 29

    Re: sarah27randall – I agree with you about Ashley. I just pictured Alice differently. Ashley seems too tall and athletic for the part of Alice.



  30. 30

    Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene should give in… Twilight needs you, after the last movie you will make more money.. Don't do anything stupid pleace!!!!! Either way, I will not like Breaking Dawn if they ar not in it, especially Ashley, I will NOT watch the movie if she is not in it!!!!! love from Norway



  31. 31

    If I had to bet on one of them going or both….. it would be Kellan…. Ashley has a bigger role in the 4th book…. In addition to RPattz, KStew and Taylor, she is one of the actors that does PR for the movies…. Hope they don't kick her to the curb!



  32. 32

    If you read the books you would know that Ashley does indeed deserve the money for this role. She will have more lines to read but its unfortunate that this movie will make so much money but its a constant dilemma about the salary and who they fire and who they hire, so sick of it! They should compromise in paying these two what they deserve. If this was the only movie that you knew in fact would be huge in the box office, I'm pretty sure you would be asking for more as well. So, don't sit there and criticize them for being greedy.



  33. 33

    Um, Kellan has had seriously like two lines in the past two movies. He needs to have a reality check. Ashley does have a bigger part but people will not stop seeing these movies if they let her go. They both need to re-evaluate their worth. Stop being greedy bitches!



  34. 34

    Did Ashley Greene forget that Alice & Jasper DISAPPEAR for most of the book?! She's hardly going to be in it. Get a grip.



  35. 35

    The franchise absolutely sucks. I hate that its compared to Harry Potter. Absolutely disgusting. I hope the replace Kristen Stewart… now thats a horrible disgusting actress.



  36. 36

    I think they should just take what they have been offered and be certain to remain a part of the franchise. There is much more than money to lose here. They were unheard of before Twilight. Now they are stars in their own right, but another movie and another year of being involved will mean many more appearances and venues to keep them in the public eye and help guarantee when this over they will have a more solid foothold on their stardom. If they look "difficult" already no directors will want to cast them. Stay in Ashley and Kellan and hold on tight for the wild ride! It will be soooo worth it in the end.



  37. 37

    Seriously… besides the fact that they make more money with one movie than most of us will in ten years, their so-called 'acting talent' doesn't quite add up with the sum they get too (and it's not like the Twitards watch the sparkly movie for them either)… so stop being so greedy and learn to be grateful, dumbasses!



  38. 38

    i think they were both perfectly cast

    greene is hot

    i probably wouldn't see the 4th in theaters without her
    unless maybe the new girl leaks nudes too



  39. 39

    Sorry but Ashley is perfect for the role, they will never find another person to replace her. As far as Kellan, he isn't that important of a character and nobody would notice a new guy playing his part. But Ashley is not going to be easy to replace. It's very odd how she fits the mold of Alice perfectly.

    And again perez, you're a liar and a hypocrite. I love pointing that out. I LOVE how NOW you make fun of Twilight. You're a horrible blogger.



  40. 40

    i think you should replace them! no one would notice because there parts are not very big



  41. 41

    If you'd read the books, you would see that it would ruin the whole series if they get replaced. It's bad enough that they replaced Victoria. Receiving a raise for the next 2 movies shouldn't be a problem, the movie makes MORE than enough money. They shouldn't be too greedy tho, they don't have THAT much screen time.



  42. 42

    Good riddens.. They are not A list actors.. they lucked out with this movie being such a hit.. they were hired in a low budget movie. no one thought it would be as big as it is.. but they should remember.. they cannot ask for that kind of money in another movie.. they do not have the resume to back up a big salary.. I say let them bitch - get replaced then see how they are doing in the movie biz.. look what happened to Rachelle.. I have not seen her in another movie since she was replaced.. I think they need a little humble pie..



  43. 43

    I hope they don't replace them. It would be a stupid move. Ashley is very popular in the franshise and she is awesome as Alice. They made so much money and it's shiteous that they don't wan't anyone else to get it. If they do fire them, I hope it backfires on them where it hurts. In the pocketbook



  44. 44

    they should both be replaced
    they;re not THAT great at acting anyway



  45. 45

    I DON'T GIVE A SHIT. REPLACE THESE GREEDY BITCHES.



  46. 46

    i love kellan but hate ashley



  47. 47

    well. if alice get's replaced i will not go watch eclipse or breaking dawn. i will have to settle for the book version that's already imbedded in my brain. o_O



  48. 48

    Are you kidding? The movies are nothing without them…Look what happened to Taylor when he was going to be dropped…The fans went apeshit and he got signed again. He rocked it….Give them the million they want. How much are the Unholy Trinity making on this?



  49. 49

    Since when you think Twilight is a "shiteous franchise", Perez???



  50. 50

    Re: Elaine36 – I was thinking the same… it feels like last week when Perez was gasping about anything what matters the twilight saga…. what happened?



  51. 51

    What is up with Lutz's pea-sized head?



  52. 52

    I could deal with losing Kellan. he was never a staple in the whole thing anyways.. just a pretty face. but Ashley plays one of the key roles.. to me anyways. I love Alice and esp in BD.. I say cut Kellan and pay Ashley whatever she wants.. I will be pissed if shes missing from the last movie.. absolutely livid!!



  53. 53

    Their mad. I'd do it for free haha!



  54. 54

    Hi I love twilight so mario how come your turning fickle first you love twilight then you trash it get a grip!!! None of the cast should be replaced they all rock!!! But Ashley and Kellan should watch out but overall I think summit should raise their sallery slightly cos they have got bigger parts than in the other movies but they shouldn't be too greedy. I just hope they sort it out soon because I hate the hold up, yeah i'm impatient but if we wait too long the other actors might quit!!! come on summit sort it out!!!



  55. 55

    That frikkin' small head!!!!!!!!!!!



  56. 56

    GREEDY!!!!!



  57. 57

    well though they are nice to look at. i dont think i would miss them. just as long as they dont get rid of robert pattinson i dont much care.
