Several reports have said that Summit Entertainment, the studio producing the lucrative Twilight movies, wants to split the final story, Breaking Dawn, into two films, which sounds like a no-brainer, and star Kristen Stewart is game for two more go-rounds as Bella Swan.
"I would like to do two movies, but I really, to be perfectly honest, don't know what they're going to do," Stewart said in a group interview on Thursday in Beverly Hills, Calif., where she was promoting the drama The Yellow Handkerchief. "I can't imagine that they wouldn't want [to]."
One question is whether Summit can afford to add a fifth film. Did the studio negotiate more than four movies per contract? If it only assumed there would be one film per book, it might have to pay the lead actors "sequel money" or give them big raises.
Also, there's a little thing called story that's important, too. "The story so completely warrants two films, and it would suck to have to [cut it]," Stewart continued. "It would be really disappointing to have to be able to just go, 'OK, we have to lose this sequence and this scene and this sequence and this scene.'"
Stewart added that she herself didn't know whether her contract is limited to four films. She just knows when she has to go back to work. "Probably November, but I don't know if it's going to be one or two [films]," she said.
The third film in the Twilight Saga, Eclipse, is wrapped and opens June 30.
