Double Down

Twilight Finale May Become Two Movies

Twi-hards, brace yourself for details about a fifth Twilight movie: Following in the footsteps of the Harry Potter blockbuster franchise, the Twilight movies may double down on the final installment in the series. In its first two weeks, New Moon, the second Twilight film, grossed $481 million worldwide. Summit Entertainment has gone only so far as to book screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg for Breaking Dawn, but will still have to convince the director of New Moon, Chris Weitz, and the actors to return for back-to-back shooting. Splitting the finale will also mean having to renegotiate with the series' author, Stephenie Meyer, and rewriting contracts with the actors—particularly Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner—who would end up with even fatter paychecks than what they've already seen.
