"The Hunger Games" pulled in $683.8 million around the world at the box office and series star Jennifer Lawrence is ready to reap the benefits.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 21-year-old actress is in the midst of negotiating a deal that would give her a $10 million payday for the sequel "Catching Fire."
Her whopping payday would be a combination of her salary and bonuses based on how well the movie does, which could net the actress even more if the movie is a hit.
She reportedly pulled in $500,000 for the first movie based on the best-selling Suzanne Collins trilogy, but producers reportedly renegotiated her contract after the success of the first film.
Jennifer's co-stars, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, also reportedly renegotiated their contracts, but THR sources said their paydays will be smaller than Jennifer's.
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" begins shooting in the fall and is slated for theatrical release on November 22, 2013.
