Chicago Suntimes: Squeezing More Blood

Squeezing more blood

Now that 'Twilight' is a smash, its young stars will get huge raises for the sequel -- and the sequel





Also, sources say stars Robert Pattinson, 22, and Kristin Stewart, 18, will get huge salary boosts from the $2 million each earned for "Twilight" -- reportedly $10 million more, per film, plus a nice percentage of the future movies' box-office take.

There's one rule in Hollywood that's rarely broken: Pull in big bucks at the box office and a sequel -- or three -- is virtually guaranteed. Of course the ''Twilight'' film's $70 million-plus bonanza this weekend was largely due to a built-in fan base -- thanks to the enormous success of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight novels.

So, not only have deals been cut for a not-unexpected second ''Twilight'' film (based on Meyer's New Moon book), but I've learned a third film is also virtually a done deal, based on Meyer's Eclipse novel -- though that won't be confirmed for some time.

Also, sources say stars Robert Pattinson, 22, and Kristin Stewart, 18, will get huge salary boosts from the $2 million each earned for "Twilight" -- reportedly $10 million more, per film, plus a nice percentage of the future movies' box-office take.

While Pattinson and Stewart are coming back as the romantic vampire Edward Cullen and his young human love Bella Swan, it's not confirmed that director Catherine Hardwicke will be back behind the camera. The director told the AP Sunday, ''I want to be sure that [the second film is] going to be done right. I don't want to rush into it. It's not like 'Friday, the 13th' or 'Halloween,' you can't just do it super fast and knock another one out.'' Hardwicke indicated she wanted to be sure she and the film's producers were on the same page going forward.
