The Hunger Games


Actress Jennifer Lawrence will be seeing more zeroes on her next paycheck.

The Hunger Games star is reportedly getting an extremely large raise for her role as Katniss Everdeen in Catching Fire. And when we say big—we mean millions.

Lawrence, who received $500,000 for the first flick from the franchise along with bonuses, is in the final stages of negotiating a deal to earn somewhere near—wait for it—$10 million for the second installment, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

That figure will include the actress' salary, bonuses and other factors, but could be increased to an even larger number depending on how the film does in the box office (and we're guessing it will do pretty well).

Costars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth are also said to be renegotiating their contracts, but are reportedly receiving much less than Lawrence.

Aside from The Hunger Games, Variety reports that the 21-year-old is in talks to be in the romantic drama Ends of the Earth, which follows the controversial love affair between an oil baron and his adopted daughter (Lawrence).

The film is slated to start production next summer.
