Reel News: Twilight Stars to Receive a Hefty Payday + Andrew Garfield to be paid $500,000 for Spider-Man

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are officially set for life!!

Last week, Vulture reported that the Twilight stars will reportedly earn $25 million a piece for Breaking Dawn Part 1 & 2, plus an added 7.5 percent of the whatever the two films gross. This means that if the gross is as epic as previous Twilight films have been, each actor is looking at somewhere around a $40 million dollar payday!

Usually I’d be against this but these kids have made Summit Entertainment A LOT of money in the past few years; let’s just hope that their co-stars get a little more cash thrown their way as well.

In other news…

Andrew Garfield, the new Peter Parker, will be paid $500,000 to star in the Spider-Man reboot; and although this is chump change by Hollywood standards, it’s the perfect catalyst to launch Garfield into instant super-stardom. Oh also,  Sony severely cut the budget for the Spider-Man reboot— $80 million to be exact. Doesn’t sound like a big deal but it is, considering that the previous Spider-Man films had budgets that ranged from $140-$200 million.

Guess that rules out 3-D. **fingers crossed**
