Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Get Huge Pay Bumps for ‘Breaking Dawn’
Sure, the rest of us might be struggling to keep food on the table in these troubling economic times. But don’t worry about Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner—they’re doing just fine, thanks very much.
In light of the Twilight sequel Eclipse’s runaway success at the box office since it opened last week, the series’ three lead actors have received an impressive pay bump, and will each earn at least $25 million for the final installments of the series, the two-part Breaking Dawn.
The $25 million guaranteed rate is set against a 7.5 percent stake in Breaking Dawn’s theatrical gross—which, given the staggering success of the series, could end up netting them substantially more.
Earlier this year, Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene renegotiated their contracts, and will rake in $1.25 million each for Breaking Dawn.
Well-deserved, we say. And are there more roles open for Breaking Dawn?
