Summit Entertainment, the distributor of the Twilight franchise, is hoping that lead actors of Breaking Dawn: Part 2 Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart get back together as it is affecting their promotional strategies.
Stewart, who plays the female lead role of Bella was caught cheating on Pattinson, bringing their three-year-old relationship to an end. Now, the distributor bosses are concerned if her public image would be a negative influence on their promotional tours.
"The studio's holding out to see if they get back together. But I don't think anyone is banking on that happening. At this point, the press strategy would have been mapped out. It's usually very organised, but at this time it's undecided," nypost.com quoted a source as saying.
The company has also planned to keep actress Ashley Green, who plays the role of Alice in the movie, as an option to head the promotions in case things don't workout between the lead pair.
Pattinson to meet Stewart
The two might come together for promotions as Robert Pattinson has finally decided to meet Kristen Stewart after a long conversation over the phone with her. "They talked (on the phone) for about an hour. It was very emotional... Kristen begged to meet face-to-face so they could talk. It was obvious she was getting through to Rob and he has agreed to see her," Look magazine quoted a source as saying. MORE
