The Executive Vice President of Summit Entertainment, David C. Friedman, has written to New York-based Omar Amanat threatening to sue if he continues to "misrepresent" that he is "currently affiliated" with the production company.

The letter, obtained by Deadline.com, claims Amanat has screened some of the vampire films at 'charity' events and talked some of the franchise's stars into making appearances.

It reads, "(Summit is) prepared to take action against you for, among other things, misrepresenting your authority to screen The Twilight Saga: New Moon at a charity event and misleading castmembers into thinking the screening was a sanctioned event and soliciting their participation in auctioning off a set visit for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, which Summit had not... authorised."

The letter goes on to state, "You are not a director of Summit. You are not in any way involved in the management of Summit... Unless you immediately and satisfactorily confirm that you will cease all inappropriate misrepresentations, Summit will have no choice but to pursue appropriate actions against you."
