Harrison Ford Got Paid 66 Times More Than His Force Awakens Costars

Harrison Ford Released From The Hospital Following Plane Crash

Harrison Ford got a MONSTER check for appearing in like, 1/16 of The Force Awakens, so we know someone’s doing something right.

According to Variety, he reportedly earned $10-20 million for The Force Awakens, at least 66-times the paychecks given to newcomers Daisy Ridley and John Boyega. Harrison has like, the most career of any returning member to the Franchise, so I get how he’s the hardest to get. Which is why he made more than some people make in a lifetime in ONE FILM.

With its global bow now at a record $529 million, “Star Wars’” box office success will undoubtedly afford its cast members heftier pay cuts on their next projects. But just how much money did “The Force Awakens” actors earn to join a galaxy far, far away? Sources tell Variety Harrison Ford came away the big winner on Disney and Lucasfilm’s sequel with a paycheck upwards of $10 million and as high as $20 million to reprise his role of Han Solo.

On Monday, the Daily Mail issued a report saying that Ford earned a staggering $25 million to return to the “Star Wars” franchise. A Disney insider tells Variety the story is completely false and way too high but other sources did confirm that the 73-year-old actor earned a substantially larger cut than his co-stars. Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher took home salaries in the low-seven-figure range, according to sources. Newcomers John Boyega and Daisy Ridley were paid in the low-six-figure range ($100k-$300k).

Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac, meanwhile, received offers of mid- to high-six figures. Because Driver and Isaac had fixed quotes from previous film and TV work, sources say their deals were negotiated higher compared to Boyega and Ridley, who, for the most part, had never appeared in a large-scale film before.

Insiders tell Variety that Disney made a decision in 2014 prior to casting the new roles to create a “legacy pay scale” intended for talent like Ford, Fisher and Hamill, who had previously been a part of the “Star Wars” universe, and general pay scale for actors that would be appearing for the first time. Hamill and Fisher’s salaries are expected to rise in upcoming installments as their parts grow with each film.

The salaries don’t include back-end bonuses from the pic’s box office haul that in a rare case doesn’t even kick in till the film crosses $1 billion worldwide, and following the success of “The Force Awakens,” deals are expected to be renegotiated before the next films get underway.

Back-end bonuses, TOO?! Come on. This was a great move on Ford’s part, but as the films progress you KNOW Daisey Ridley’s gonna be all like, DOLLA BILLS DOLLA BILLS!  And Adam Driver’s gonna be like, YEAH ME TOO. So Star Wars, you better keep making that sweet, sweet Sci Fi cash…

Harrison Ford Released From The Hospital Following Plane Crash

Harrison Ford Released From The Hospital Following Plane Crash

Harrison Ford is on the mend after crashing his plane and being admitted into the hospital. The actor has been released from the hospital following almost four weeks of treatment.

According to multiple sources, the experienced pilot left the hospital late last week and is “on his way to healing.”

“He’s a strong guy,” one insider tells Us Weekly of the Star Wars actor, whose World War II vintage plane crash landed onto a golf course in Santa Monica, Calif., just 20 seconds after it’s engine stalled upon take off.

Ford, who was conscious when help arrived on scene but was banged up and in complete shock before being rushed to UCLA Medical Center, will now seek treatment in a rehab facility to help mend his pelvis and ankle, a second source tells Us.

“The injuries sustained are not life threatening,” his rep previously told Us in a statement. “He is expected to make a full recovery.”

We are glad that he is alive and well, but we’re pretty sure that he will probably be back up in the air again before we know it.
