Thanks to a very huge following of young fans, Jennifer Lawrence will be seeing a few more zeroes on her paycheck as she reprises her role as Katniss Everdeen in the upcoming movie Catching Fire, the sequel to the huge hit Hunger Games.
The 22-year-old actress, who received $500,000 on the first installment of the film, is now in the final stages of negotiating a deal with Lionsgate. If all works out well for Lawrence, she could reach a deal that will earn her of up to $10 million. The figure will already include her salary, bonuses and other factors, which could still increase if the film ever does well in the box office.
Co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth were also said to be negotiating their contracts, but there’s no doubt that they will still be receiving nothing close to that of Lawrence. Catching Fire is scheduled to start production come September and then be released by November of next year (2013).
