"Twilight" Drama Resolved: Cullen Family Stars Sign on For "Breaking Dawn"

"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" will officially be a Cullen family reunion.

After weeks of reported salary negotiations for some of the supporting cast, Summit Entertainment confirmed to Access Hollywood on Wednesday that the Cullens — Peter Facinelli, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Jackson Rathbone, Elizabeth Reaser and Nikki Reed — are all set to return for the vampire series' final installment.

Billy Burke, who plays Bella's father Charlie Swan, will also return.

Prior to the official announcement, Deadline reported on Wednesday that Ashley and Jackson were wrapping up their deals and other members of the Cullen family had already signed on.

The news meant avoiding another casting shake-up for the series, which replaced the villainous Victoria with Bryce Dallas Howard for this summer's "Eclipse" after Rachelle Lefevre played the role in "Twilight" and "New Moon."

"Breaking Dawn" remains rumored to be potentially split into two films, with Summit's Wednesday announcement careful to name it as a "project." An installment – whether the blockbuster franchise's finale or part one of two – is slated for release on November 18, 2011, with third film "Eclipse" arriving this summer on June 30.
