Catherine Hardwicke: Breaking Dawn Salary Disputes "Could Turn Ugly."

Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke warns that Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene could be replaced -- like Rachelle Lefevre -- in the hit vampire flicks if they ask for too much money to reprise their roles in Breaking Dawn.

"Ashley and Kellan have agents, managers, lawyers... 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," Hardwicke told at the Twilight convention in Vancouver on Sunday.

The Hollywood Reporter says Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson have already received huge raises for their roles in Stephenie Meyer's
fourth book, which is rumored to be split into two movies. But the
secondary characters are still negotiating salaries.

A source tells Us that "Summit leaked the story to turn fans against the cast. They are leading the negotiations to the press and are trying to make them look greedy... Summit has made
millions and the cast is just looking to get what they deserve."

Said Hardwicke, "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

"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!" she continued.

The source tells Us, "The leads made 20 times as much on Eclipse than they did on Twilight," continues the source. "The non-leads are not asking for anything close to that."

Meanwhile, Pattinson and Stewart tell USA Today why they haven't been photographed together recently. (Us Weekly reported last month that they have a system for sneaking around to see
each other. While filming Eclipse, out June 30, they spent most of
their nights together, but, says a source, "always had two separate
drivers to give the illusion they weren't an item.")

"We have gotten better at hiding over the last year," Pattinson admits. Agrees Stewart, "We are just good hiders now."

I agree wit Katie H., Catherine knows how these things are running..But it's sad if both of the old actors would be replaced. I wish Summit would realize what's the worth of these actors to make the movie realistic. And hope they will give them the good pay that's reasonable for them. I don't believe yet until this two confirms they're out in the last film. They deserve good pay, too. If Summit made money out of them, then it's pretty fair to give what's fair share to their talents..

God, i really wish Catherine would go away. Yes, she directed twilight, but she should be out of the picture now, instead of trying to push her way back into the franchise. Summit knows what they're doing, and they'll do what's right for the film.

I am freaking scared. I can't imagine BD without Ashley and Kellan.

Neither can I. But Summit is being cheap, and I'm not only talking payments here. I mean, leak the info to make the actors look bad? They obviously don't know how to treat neither their actors (nor the fans). I say if they don't pay them they walk out. The worst that could happen? We wouldn't see them in a couple more scenes.

This is soo awful...they cannot recast! They already stuffed up Victoria completely - no offense to Bryce, will have to make up my mind about that one - they CANNOT repeat this with these two characters!! I don't know about you guys, but I cannot picture Alice and Emmett as anyone but Ashley and Kellan...they are simply synonymous with the characters now. If they had been replaced (like Rachelle) in earlier films, it may have been more accepted. But having the same actors play these characters all along and THEN replacing them in the last films is not acceptable! That would be utterly absurd!! Pay them the money Summit - the fans will end up topping your coffers anyway!
