Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson are demanding more money to appear in Hunger Games sequel, reports Radar Online. They are jealous that Jennifer Lawrence is signed on to earn $10 million for Catching Fire, she made $500k for the first film. They are threatening to walk if the movie studio doesn’t give them what they want.
‘When stars are negotiating their contracts, these things can happen and stars will try and bump up their salaries. Liam and Josh got wind of Jennifer’s pay raise and they want more money to appear in the second movie of the tetralogy. They’re not demanding as much as Jennifer, they’re aware she plays a bigger role in the films, but they want a little more than the $2 million they were each offered.
With the success of the first movie, they feel that $5 million is a more suitable fee and are haggling with the studio before dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s on their deals. And they have even said they may not return for the sequel, which they hope will be a bargaining chip for a bigger pay packet.’
