'Hunger Games' star Jennifer Lawrence is reportedly about to secure a fee of $10 million (£6.4 million) to appear in the the film's sequel 'Catching Fire'.

It's even thought that the figure could increase depending on box-office takings, thanks to various bonuses and 'escalators' that will be drawn into her contract.

The number is a vast increase from her wages for the first film, thought to be $500,000 (£321,000) plus some added performance bonuses.

But due to the film's huge success, making more than $680 million (£436 million) at the box office, the rising star is now able to command terms to star in the next film.

After playing Katniss Everdeen in the first film, she became the most profitable action heroine of all time, according to stats website Box Office Mojo.

Any figure secured now could also increase further, with the actress expected to stay on for all four films in the series – the final installment 'Mockingjay' now being split into two parts.

Her co-stars, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, are also thought to have negotiated pay rises, but not on the scale of Lawrence's.

'Catching Fire' starts filming in September.
