LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Rest assured, “Twilight Saga” fans – press and appearances for the final vampire/werewolf film will go on as planned.
Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the blockbuster franchise, says that despite the personal turmoil between stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, promotion for “Breaking Dawn – Part 2” will continue without a hitch.
“While it is studio policy not to comment on the personal lives of actors, Summit is moving full steam ahead and looking forward to this November’s opening of ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2,’”Nancy Kirkpatrick, Summit’s president of worldwide marketing, said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly on Wednesday. “We are confident that the film delivers amazing entertainment for our passionate fans and general audience alike.”
The attempt to calm worried fans comes shortly on the heels of a statement from Robert’s rep on Wednesday, asserting the 26-year-old will be on hand to promote his latest film, “Cosmopolis,” for the movie’s press day and premiere in New York City (on August 13 and 14, respectively).
“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” hits theaters on November 16, 2012; “Cosmopolis” is slated for release on August 17.
