Good news for 'Twilight' fans. To paraphrase former President Gerald Ford, who no doubt would have been a huge Twihard himself were he alive today, our long national nightmare is finally over: the Cullen Clan is back in the fold.

Yes, according to Entertainment Weekly, Summit Entertainment has reached a deal with both Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz to reprise their respective roles as Alice and Emmit Cullen for the upcoming adaptation of 'Breaking Dawn,' the final tome in Stephenie Meyer's blockbuster 'Twilight' franchise.

You may recall that just a few weeks ago, Summit's plans to split 'Breaking Dawn' into two movies was jeopardized by contract demands of the cast and crew, many of which had originally been signed to deals for just three films back when the 'Twilight' saga was thought to only be a trilogy. When the prolific Meyer came up with the fourth bestselling book, however, Summit had to scramble to resign the cast, a move that ran into snags when some of the actors held out for higher wages in light of the film franchise's massive box office success.

That, in turn, led to a frenzy of speculation, turmoil and angst that threatened to destroy the internet, as everyone up to and including former 'Twilight' director Catherine Hardwicke weighed in on the approaching pop culture Armageddon. And with key dates in next year's film schedule already being gobbled up by competitors, every day the negotiations dragged out meant possible money lost for everyone involved.

Now, though, 'Breaking Dawn' is back on track and the crisis has been averted thanks to the supreme diplomacy exhibited by all sides. And that's something we think President Ford would have approved of.
