Kellan Lutz is now saying in interviews that when he initially got the 'Twilight' script, he didn't "like' it and that it "didn't make sense". Of course, Lutz can say that now and have no fear of retaliation from the studio, as the franchise is finished filming and all the actors have collected their massive paychecks. Very few people could have felt that the initially "indie" movie would go on to balloon into a five movie franchise that would make its lead actors global phenomenons and the name 'Twilight' synonymous with screaming female fans.
He did say his main issue was with the screenplay of the movie, rather than the book itself - the screenplay that was adapted by Melissa Rosenberg (who also consequently went on to draft the new few Twilight movies).
“I didn’t like the script,” he admitted to Document recently in a bustling Marina del Rey coffee shop, baseball cap pulled snugly over his curly dirty-blond locks in an effort at anonymity.
"How scary would a glimmering vampire really be?" he added, his twinkling blue eyes driving the point home. "It just doesn’t make sense."
More than likely, Lutz is just saying that now - back when he initially took the part, he was an unknown actor looking for work, just like millions of people like him in LA. Now, he's just managed to collect a reported $2 million dollar paycheck for the final Twilight film. The question is, will he be able to continue acting in his pick of movies, especially if he insults the very movie that made him famous.
