It's a pretty good time to be Jennifer Lawrence. The actress is not only a major part of two franchises -- "The Hunger Games" and the new Matthew Vaughn directed 'X-Men' films -- but she's making major strides in the dramatic realm as well, starring in this fall's David O. Russell flick "The Silver Linings Playbook," with Susanne Bier's period tale "Serena" already in the can. And moreover, she's lining up big projects to fit in between the blockbusters, including an adaptation of the acclaimed memoir "The Glass Castle" and more recently, the romantic drama "The Ends Of The Earth." But it's also time for Lawrence to get rewarded for her success so far, and boy, while she ever.

Hunger Games Jennifer Lawrence Bow & Arrow

It's a pretty good time to be Jennifer Lawrence. The actress is not only a major part of two franchises -- "The Hunger Games" and the new Matthew Vaughn directed 'X-Men' films -- but she's making major strides in the dramatic realm as well, starring in this fall's David O. Russell flick "The Silver Linings Playbook," with Susanne Bier's period tale "Serena" already in the can. And moreover, she's lining up big projects to fit in between the blockbusters, including an adaptation of the acclaimed memoir "The Glass Castle" and more recently, the romantic drama "The Ends Of The Earth." But it's also time for Lawrence to get rewarded for her success so far, and boy, while she ever.

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.
