It looks like making the final two installments of the ‘Twilight’ saga is costing some serious cash — will it be worth it?

Breaking Dawn better hope to carry on in the profitable tradition of its three Twilight predecessors as the film is costing a pretty penny to produce. TheWrap reports, “Summit’s two coming blockbusters, “Breaking Dawn 1 and 2 will cost $263 million — not the $200 million previously reported — and are projected to bring in a staggering $1.2 billion for the studio.” Whoa!

Part of this goes to the hefty salaries stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner will be taking home. Each is set to receive a very nice $12.5 million for their work. Not too shabby!

What do you think HollywoodLifers — will Breaking Dawn make back its money?
