Summit to Break Apart Breaking Down?

While I was all for Warner Bros. splitting the final Harry Potter installment, as there is way too much going on in that book, I see Summit Entertainment's decision to possibly split the last Twilight installment, Breaking Dawn, as a greedy move; and I think they're going to end up doing it.

Twilight's Breaking Dawn Looking to Split

Let's face it -- the Twilight franchise was the lottery ticket that Summit Entertainment has been looking for, and the fasttracking of the sequels is one of the many indicators that Summit is hoping to cash in quick. Wanting to milk this golden egg for all it's worth, Summit Entertainment is questioning whether they should turn this four-parter into five.

The studio has already hired scribe Melissa Rosenberg, the same person who wrote the first three installments, to write the fourth. But she is on standby just in case she is ordered to write two scripts instead of one.

There are a couple hurdles to clear however, and it's not Summit's conscious. The studio is going to need approval from cast and crew, meaning new contracts for the additional installment, and the green light from author Stephenie Meyer. Besides being a cash cow for the studio, the fifth installment will likely mean a big pay raise for the principle cast, who could see up to 8 figures on their paychecks for Breaking Dawn II.
