E! Online's Ted Casablanca reports news from his Deep Twi that Stephenie Meyer and Summit Entertainment still having disputes over whether "Breaking Dawn" should be one film or two, which is what is causing production on the final installment of the film series to be at a standstill.
Apparently Stephenie doesn't think two movies is the right thing to do "creatively" for the series (and neither do we), while Summit wants to milk its cash cow for all it's worth. Things haven't gotten dirty yet, but the way "Deep Twi" describes it, all the pressure is on Stephenie. Summit is doing its best to "politely inspire" Stephenie to greenlight the two-flick route. For them, double the work equals double the money. Studios care more about that green stuff than an out-of-nowhere millionaire housewife.
