Jennifer Lawrence is getting a majoe raise from the $500,000 plus bonuses she earned for the first movie.
Katniss helped "The Hunger Games" gross almost $700 million and she is in the final stages of negotiating a rich deal to return for "Catching Fire" that will pay somewhere in the $10 million range. Depending on box-office performance she could also get a big bonus as well.
Co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth are also said to have negotiated their contracts, but each will receive far smaller raises.
Production on the sequel is scheduled to begin in in September in Georgia and Lionsgate has set a release date of November 22, 2013.
