THR reports that producers for "The Hunger Games" and Jennifer Lawrence are renegotiating her contract, with the actress expected to earn upwards of $10 million (and possibly more if the movie does well) for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." Boosting the pay of the cast is pretty standard on most franchises, especially when they make big bucks -- both Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth are getting pay upgrades, though not quite as lucrative -- and so it goes here. It's all about keeping the talent happy and investing in future success, so everyone is likely walking away pretty happy. And it's certainly a nice boost from the $500,000 Lawrence made on the first movie.
Not receiving anywhere near $10 million bucks are the two latest additions to the movie, Patrick St. Espirit ("Sons Of Anarchy") and Meta Golding ("CSI," "Criminal Minds"). The former will play Romulus Thread, the head peacekeeper of District 12 while the latter is Enobaria, a winner from District 2 who apparently was victorious in a rather brutal manner. Production on the movie gears up in September in Georgia, and you'll find Lawrence by seeking out the biggest trailer on the set. "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" opens on November 22, 2013.
