Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth think they deserve a pay increase for ‘Catching Fire’ after ‘The Hunger Games’ grossed over $683 million worldwide!

The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is reportedly getting a big raise! After earning only $500,000 (plus bonuses) for playing the protagonist, Katniss Everdeen in the original film, the 21-year-old actress is negotiating a $10 million paycheck for the film’s sequel, Catching Fire!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the figure is a combination of salary, bonuses and escalators, however, depending on the box-office performance of the film, Jennifer could earn much more!

Catching Fire co-stars, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, are also renegotiating their contracts, but sources say their pay increase will not be as substantial. They could earn somewhere around $5 million each for the sequel.

Production on the second film is scheduled to begin in September in Georgia, with Francis Lawrence replacing Gary Ross as director. Catching Fire is slated to hit theaters in November of 2013.

Do you think Jennifer deserves a pay increase?
