::Team Breaking Dawn:: Stephenie Meyer OPPOSED to spliting Breaking Dawn

It's a new year, a new decade, and time for more "Twilight" drama! Surprisingly enough, this time it doesn't involve any of the cast members or crew, but instead the big moguls behind the series itself. E! Online's Ted Casablanca reports news from his Deep Twi that Stephenie Meyer and Summit Entertainment still having disputes over whether "Breaking Dawn" should be one film or two, which is what is causing production on the final installment of the film series to be at a standstill.
"Both sides have very different agendas," Ted reports his mole as saying.
Apparently Stephenie doesn't think two movies is the right thing to do "creatively" for the series (and neither do we), while Summit wants to milk its cash cow for all it's worth. Things haven't gotten dirty yet, but the way "Deep Twi" describes it, all the pressure is on Stephenie.

"They keep trying to persuade her it's the right thing to do artistically. They're constantly waiting for her input," the source is reported to have said.
At this time last year, after the success of "Twilight," shooting for "New Moon" was already underway and a director for "Eclipse" was being picked. Now, "New Moon" has already been released and "Eclipse" is in the editing room, but there hasn't even been a director picked out for "Breaking Dawn." "Eclipse" is set to hit theaters in five months, and if some major steps haven't been made in film production by then, Summit and Stephenie are going to have a lot of angry, anxious fans on their hands.
