As soon as the news of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn being released hit the world like a rocket, the whispers of contract disputes soon followed. The Matriarch of the saga Elizabeth Reaser aka Esme Cullen voices her opinion on the topic.
The matriarch of the Cullen family in the “Twilight” films says talk of contract disputes are overblown.Elizabeth Reaser, who plays Esme Cullen, says people need to understand contract negotiations are a part of showbiz.
It’s been reported online that Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz, who play vampires Alice and Emmett Cullen, originally had a three-picture deal and needed a new contract for the fourth installment of the franchise.
Summit Entertainment says it won’t comment on negotiations or business discussions on its films.
The studio also won’t say when filming is expected to begin for “Breaking Dawn,” and Reaser hasn’t been given a time line, either.
She says: “I really want to know because I’m trying to plan my life.”
I don’t blame her. I know this how the business works but like Elizabeth said, she’s trying to plan her own life. This is her job, she needs to know she has a steady paycheck and unfortunately all this waiting around can be nerve racking. Time to play our favorite game: Hurry up and wait.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn is slated for a November 18th 2011 release.
