Breaking Dawn cast negotiations hit a snag?

The respected Hollywood journal 'The Hollywood Reporter' is reporting that the hold up on announcing whether 'Breaking Dawn' will be one or two movies is due to a salary dispute. According to 'THR' primary cast members including Kristen, Rob and Taylor are close to finalizing their deals. The hold up is due to the secondary cast members. 'THR' says:

"Deals for Peter Facinelli (who plays Carlisle Cullen) and Billy Burke (Bella's father, Charlie Swan) are done, but we're told the actors who play the Cullen kids (especially Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene) are trying to sink their teeth into bigger paydays that, at least at this point, the studio behind the billion-dollar franchise is unwilling to provide. "We may have a situation where one of them is thrown out on the street to make a point," says a source close to the dealmaking."

MTV is saying "The major names associated with the series are all contractually bound to stay on through "Breaking Dawn," but new deals are required if the studio splits the story into two movies."If a deal cannot be reached Summit has replaced cast before on the saga (Rachelle anyone..) so it is not unheard of. I however doubt Ashley or Kellan would NOT want to be a part of the final movie/movies.

Hopefully this can some to a peaceful resolution for all involved - would you rather one or two movies for 'Breaking Dawn'?
