"The Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence is about to get a big raise. As Katniss Everdeen, the Oscar nominee ("Winter's Bone") helped propel "The Hunger Games" to a hefty global gross of $683.8 million, and now she's negotiating a big payday for the upcoming sequel, "Catching Fire." Lawrence is in the final stages of negotiating a deal with Lionsgate worth somewhere in the range of $10 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter. A backend provision will mean even more money in the very likely event that "Fire" is another box office hit. Her fee for the first film? $500,000 -- plus bonuses.  Co-stars Josh Hutcherson »
