Jennifer Lawrence is getting a major pay raise for the next installment in the Hunger Games Trilogy! The actress is in the final stages of negotiating a deal to return as Katniss Everdeen in Catching Fire. According to sources, Jennifer will earn nearly $10 million more than she did in the first film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the first film earned almost $700 million worldwide. Lawrence was paid only $500,000 to star in that film. In her new deal, she will not only get the raise in pay, but bonuses depending on how well the movie does in the box office.
She has a four movie deal with studio Lionsgate for the movie adaptation of Suzanne Collins best-selling trilogy but producers decided to renegotiate her contract after the film became an international sensation.
Lawrence’s co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth also are said to have renegotiated their contracts.
Director Francis Lawrence is replacing Gary Ross for the sequel. Lionsgate plans to release the film on November 22, 2013.
I’d say Jennifer is definitely worth it! If the movie’s going to make that much money, then the actors should certainly see a raise, if you ask me.
Here are some new pictures of Jennifer leaving a boxing class in Los Angeles yesterday afternoon.
