Jennifer Lawrence to Earn $10 Million for Catching Fire

Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence will earn $10 million for starring in the sequel, Catching Fire. Lawrence only earned $500,000 (plus bonuses) for her performance in the first Hunger Games movie.

Here’s more from The Hollywood Reporter: “[Lawrence's] original deal with studio Lionsgate locked her into four planned films based on the best-selling Suzanne Collins trilogy, but producers — recognizing the success of the franchise — moved to renegotiate her contract as the film became an international sensation.”

Co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson are also rumored to be seeking pay bumps.

The first movie had a budget of $78 million. Lionsgate has not yet revealed the Catching Fire budget. However, the movie studio has confirmed bringing on four new members to the cast of this film franchise: Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee, Amanda Plummer as Wiress, Jena Malone as Johanna Mason and Lynn Cohen as Mags.
