The three actors will be collecting a very healthy payday AND a percentage of the gross for the final two films in the ‘Twilight’ series!

It looks like Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner can look forward to a nice long vacation after they wrap filming on Breaking Dawn next year — they are set to make at least $25 million and a percentage of the gross for the two part film! Vulture reports, “Insiders tell us that Summit will pay stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner each a whopping $25 million against 7.5 percent of the theatrical gross for starring in the next and last two Twilight movies, Breaking Dawn, Parts One and Two.” Crazy!

To get the final figure there is a some crazy movie math to be done but Vulture breaks it down like this: “The previous Twilight film, New Moon, took in almost $710 million worldwide, and Eclipse is on pace to exceed that. But let’s conservatively assume that both Breaking Dawns do as well as New Moon: After factoring in exhibitor splits, a lesser studio share for international releases, and other typical debited fees that would give you a migraine if they were explained here, each star would take in another $16 million total, giving them all final paydays of $41 million.”

While the three stars certainly work more than any of the other cast members in the promotion of the film and onscreen, we wonder what costars Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, and others will have to say about this!
