However, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will still be in the lead roles, and the supporting actors will resume their roles as well.

They at least need to keep Edward; everyone else could be removed, and it would still work.  There is a HUGE Robert Pattinson obsession now (I hear it every day in the classroom..."I can't believe how hot he is!").  If they get rid of him as Edward, there will be an uproar.  For the first time in history, teens (and who knows, older women too) might stage casting protests:  just imagine hundreds of teenage girls and women stamping outside the studio, with their "We Want Robert!" signs.  It could get ugly.  :)

The problem with the first movie was less the actors (although I felt Kristen was awful), and more the lack of explanation, funky cinematography, inconsistent narration, and excessive cheesy close-ups of Edward and Bella.  I say fix THAT, and then you might have some sort of enduring movie series.

Is this true? Where did you find this information? I think this will ruin the series, or the movie versions of it, because there is a need for consistency.
