Jennifer Lawrence is slated for a very big pay raise.
The actress reportedly received a base salary of $500,000 for The Hunger Games, which went on to gross about $700 million worldwide.
But now Lawrence is close to negotiating a bump up to around $10 million to reprise her role as Katniss Everdeeen for the film’s sequel Catching Fire, reports THR.
The deal, which combines her salary, bonuses and other tie-ins to the film, could actually land her even more than $10 million.
Newly joining Lawrence for the the sequel are Sam Claflin, set to play Finnick Odair, Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee, Jena Malone as Johanna Mason, and Amanda Plummer as Wiress.
Production on Catching Fire is slated to begin next month, and is set for a November 2013 release.
