The Twilight Trio is about to become very wealthy.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse sailed to the top of the box office over the weekend. The third installment in the wildly-popular blockbuster film franchise has earned $161 million since hitting theaters on June 30.

Now the movie’s three stars are set to rake in a substantial sum of dough after landing a reported deal for the series finale that will gift the talent behind The Saga’s central characters with base salaries of $25 million each.

Twilighters Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner are reportedly guaranteed at least $25 million a piece to appear in the final two Twilight films, Breaking Dawn Parts I and II, Hollywood insiders gushed to NY Mag’s Vulture Column this week. In addition, the twentysomething stars have been offered 7.5% of the film’s theatrical gross, which could result in a final payday of $41 million for each.
