Will It Be 'Fifty Shades Of Pay Demands' For Sequels?
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson will reportedly be angling for a BIG wage hike...
After Fifty Shades of Grey proved itself a global box-office smash, thoughts have turned to the sequel and speculation has begun over the stars' pay.
But now The Hollywood Reporter reckons they'll be looking to cash in big time for the sequel - Fifty Shades Darker - with seven-figure raises being mentioned.
An insider was quoted as saying: "It was a very basic franchise starter deal. Look at Twilight and Hunger Games, and that's where it is heading."
Jennifer Lawrence apparently made about £330k for the first Hunger Games movie - but stepped that up to £6.7m for the sequel.
But producer Dana Brunetti is reportedly keen to keep a lid on costs and to prevent the £27m budget of the original movie ballooning with salary costs.
He said: "That was the great thing about this film — we knew we were going to be able to make stars.
"Now it's their opportunity to get paid on other projects. It's been a breakout role for both of them. I'm sure they are getting tons of offers on other things."
We've got a feeling we haven't heard the last of this one!
