jennifer in hunger gamesJennifer Lawrence is getting a HUGE pay raise thanks to the success of her first “Hunger Games” film. Jennifer plays the star of the film, Katniss Everdeen, and will be reprising her role in Catching Fire. Lawrence only received $500,000 for the first part of the series (not counting bonuses for box office sales), but will now be earning a whopping $10 million for Catching fire, directed by Francis Lawrence who is replacing Gary Ross.

This number does include bonuses and could grow even larger depending on how the movie does once the film reaches the box office. She’s very likely to earn a ton of bonuses, considering the fact that “Hunger Games” netted $683.8 million!

The Oscar nominated actress is under contract with Lionsgate studio to star in all four of the series films based on the best-selling trilogy by Suzannee Collins. Lawrence’s raise comes as no surprise considering the popularity of this series. Many other similar franchises have made the exact same type of move with their stars, including “Twilight” and “Harry Potter.”

Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth are also renegotiating their contracts but will not be earning quite as much as the star of the series, jennifer smilingLawrence. “Catching Fire” is set to begin filming in Georgia in September. The studio, Lionsgate, has set a release date of November 22, 2013.

Lawrence has some other projects in the works. Apparently the film “Ends of the Earth” depicts a love affair between an oil tycoon and his adopted daughter (played by Lawrence.) “Ends of the Earth” is set to beginning filming the summer of 2013.

Lawrence will also be reprising her role as Mystique in the latest X  Men film “X-Men: Days of Future Past!” Though the movie release is still 2 years away, it’s never too early to get excited about it. The producer and director Bryan Singer spoke the film saying that it does include some of the comic aspects, but that it will include some new twists. We do know the film will include some parts from the “Uncanny X-Men” comics, and that Kitty Pryde will travel to alternate future Earths! Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy will also return as rivals, Magneto and Professor X. Jennifer Lawrence will resume Mystique right where she left off at the end of the last film, having chosen the “dark” side.
