Peter Facinelli, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Jackson Rathbone, Elizabeth Reaser, Nikki Reed, and Billy Burke Sign on to BREAKING DAWN; Plus Three New TWILIGHT: ECLIPSE Posters

     May 19, 2010

Summit Entertainment has just sent out a press release announcing The Cullen Family (Peter Facinelli, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Jackson Rathbone, Elizabeth Reaser, and Nikki Reed) have signed on for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn and they’ll be joining Billy Burke as Charlie Swan.  What I find interesting about the press release is the lack of any mention of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner and Breaking Dawn.

What this tells me is Summit made deals with all the minor characters in the Twilight franchise and now they’re moving onto the major players.  Also, the press release makes no mention of whether or not Breaking Dawn will be one or two movies, but I think we all know it’s going to be two.

Hit the jump for the press release and check out three new The Twilight Saga: Eclipse movie posters.

Here’s the press release followed by the posters:
