Reed Dismisses Twilight Pay Dispute
Actress NIKKI REED has dismissed claims she was embroiled in a pay dispute over the final installment of the TWILIGHT movie series, insisting it was "obvious" she would return to the franchise.
The supporting cast was reportedly in negotiations to land better salaries for the final movie, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, after it was revealed Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were receiving multi-million dollar pay cheques.
Sources claimed film bosses at Summit Entertainment were willing to recast some roles if appropriate deals could not be reached, but the pay dispute was reportedly resolved last month (May10).
But Reed, who plays vampire Rosalie Hale in the movies, is adamant she was always planning to shoot the final film.
She tells MTV.com, "I think it's kind of an obvious thing that we would all come back to do (Breaking Dawn). The media gets involved. I mean, I didn't really read anything that was printed. At least the things that were printed about me.
"Of course we're all going to do the fourth movie. We did the first, second and third, and it makes sense, because we love the books and we want to make these movies. I mean, I'm speaking for myself, I guess."
Shooting on Breaking Dawn is slated to begin in the autumn (10) and movie bosses are rumoured to be splitting the film into two installments, which will reportedly be shot back-to-back, ahead of possible releases in November 2011 and summer 2012.
