The Hunger Games was one of the top grossing films of 2012. It took in $683.8 million worldwide and the box office predictions for the sequel Catching Fire are even higher. This is good news for its star Jennifer Lawrence, who will play the lead, Katniss Everdeen, in all four of the upcoming films in the franchise. For her work, the Academy Award Nominee will have a pretty considerable pay raise for the film’s sequel.
According to THR, Lawrence is in negotiations with Lionsgate for a $10 million pay raise for the sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. For the first film, The Hunger Games, Lawrence received a $500,000 salary plus bonuses to play the plucky tribute from District 12. Lionsgate would also position Lawrence as the main attraction for the remaining films in the franchise.
