COPIED AND PASTE
Twilight film studio Summit Entertainment has just announced that the "Cullen" cast members of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn are intact (and Billy Burke)!
Here's the full language of the press release:
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.
Academy Award® winner Bill Condon will direct THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN based on the fourth novel in author Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, starring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner. The project is currently being written by Melissa Rosenberg with Wyck Godfrey, Karen Rosenfelt, and Stephenie Meyer producing. THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN is slated to be released November 18, 2011.
THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions.
The family of vampires, to which the leading male character Edward Cullen belongs, is comprised of Facinelli as Carlisle, Greene as Alice, Lutz as Emmett, Rathbone as Jasper, Reaser as Esme, and Reed as Rosalie.
The third film in the franchise, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE is due in theaters on June 30, 2010.
Notice that the press release is carefully crafted so as not to confirm the big three - Robert Pattinson Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner. All accounts of their contract negotiations situation, though, have been positive, so it's probably just a matter of paperwork for those three at this point. In other words, they'll still be in the movie (of course!), but they probably can't be confirmed on paper til the writing's on the wall.
