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:


Los Angeles, CA  May 19, 2010 – Summit Entertainment has confirmed that Peter Facinelli, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Jackson Rathbone, Elizabeth Reaser, and Nikki Reed will all return as members of the Cullen Family in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN.  These cast members join Billy Burke as Charlie Swan.

    Why do Edward's lips look chapped? Also please tell me why poster Jane doesn't remotely resemble movie Jane. The fans make better posters than the studio.

    Summit Ent had confirmed the three top narcisistic brats last year. Summit didn't bother with the grunts who oddly enough are the only group which have a few who can act. I truly hoped that they would have the integrity to walk. Summit has screwed over the rest of the cast since day one. Not once did and of the top three ever say anything good about them are defend them in anyway. Yet, each time a Cullen family member was interviewed he or she sang the praises of the three top show ponies. You have the druggie who is also the local drug trafficer Kristen Stewart the wind up doll with the flabby boy body and beaver teeth who gets a kick out of controlling Robert and Taylor with drugs and threeways. Neither Robert or Taylor ever show up stoned unless they been in the back of limo paid for by Summit with Kristen Stewart. Stewart is doing this to ruin these guys and pretend she is all cool like Madonna was, only problem is Madonna actually had some talent. I don't care how many movies she has thrown her way she's yesterdays news and the Indies will realize how awful she really is. Then you have Taylor the Incredible Hulk's son who probably has a chance if he could stay away from Kristen and Robert. He does seem to be the only one of the top three that actually has a family that cares. Taylor just needs to learn not to listen to older people that are less educated that he is and that is the other two brats he currently finds himself with. Then you have the gay boytoy whose body is as disgusting as his bouffant hair or his head that is to big for his body. Robert is the stupidest of the three. Robert showed up here and for one second in Twilight you get that he might have talent and then he continues to listen to Kristen on how he should act and he gets worse and worse. Robert is definitely over, someone just needs to bury the body. Then Robert can take back his sarcastic drugged out self back to England where he belongs because in England they knew he had no talent.
    I hope Peter F., Elizabeth R., and Jackson Rathbone go on and have all their hopes and dreams met.

    thanks for your bitter, and pointless 2 cents. Every one of the people you carelessly mention in your…rant…is making buttloads more money than you, is way more popular, and likely couldn't care less about your 'sour grapes' perspective. Drink the Kool-Aid, already.
