Jennifer Lawrence get Hunger Games Pay Raise



Jennifer LawrenceJennifer Lawrence has a great agent. The Hunger Games stars is set to earn a $10 million dollar paycheck for the follow up, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The Guardian UK reported the news this morning.


Jennifer Lawrence shot to super stardom last year playing Katniss Everdeen, the now famous character the world over. In the first installment, The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence reportedly made just over $500,000 thousand dollars. Not bad for your average joe, but a small salary in Hollywood standards.


Well, that has all changed now and she certainly had the upper hand in negotiations. She is the corner stone of the franchise. Lionsgate needs Jennifer Lawrence, she would be absoulutly impossible to replace. There is no way in hell another actress could come in at this point and play Katniss.


Co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth are getting far more meagre wage rises, suggesting what we already know and what I wrote above, Lawrence is recognised as the franchise’s key figure.


Catching Fire starts shooting in September with¬†Water for Elephants¬†director Francis Lawrence taking over from Gary Ross. I think that is a mistake. Gary Ross should have been back, but he couldn’t get the raise jennifer Lawrence got and walked away from the project.
