Johansson offered 13 mn pounds for ‘Avengers 2′?July 8th, 2012 - 3:32 am ICT by IANS
London, July 8 (IANS) Scarlett Johansson has reportedly been offered a whopping 13 million pounds to feature in “Avengers 2″, and it is perhaps the maximum an actress has ever been paid for a movie.
The 27-year-old is being lured to return as Black Widow in the superhero sequel, reports thesun.co.uk.
Angelina Jolie was paid 12.2 million pounds for “The Tourist”, and if Johansson agrees to “Avengers 2″, she would break that record.
Movie bosses want Johansson to sign the project after “Avengers” grossed 936 million pounds at the box office.
“Scarlett is the hottest star in Hollywood and her inclusion in the sequel is a must.
Producers think that as the only lead woman in the film male fans have found her a key ingredient - both for sex and story appeal. She is loved by critics too,” said a source.
“This says, ‘We value you’. Everyone is confident she’ll sign and be ready for 2013 filming,” added the source.
Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth and Jeremy Renner are also to get 50 percent pay rises.
