Quvenzhane Wallis

10-year-old child star and actress Quvenzhane Wallis has been offered $1.5 million to star in the remake of Annie. She starred in Beasts of the Southern Wild and was nominated for Best Actress at this year’s Academy Awards. The nominee made Wallis the youngest female star to ever be nominated for a ‘Best ActressAcademy Award.

In Annie remake, she’ll play the orphan character alongside Jamie Foxx (playing Daddy Warbucks) and Cameron Diaz. The movie is being produced by Will Smith & Jay-Z and set to hit theaters Christmas 2014.

According to TMZ, the producers had to get approval from a judge because she’s a minor. She’s also cashing out! Below TMZ reports what she will get:

— $750,000 base salary
— $750,000 bonus if the movie does super good
— 5% of profits
— 5% of all merchandising
— 10% of sound track album royalties

Now get this … Q’s co-stars are Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz.  According to her contract, her name cannot be lower than second position.  Realistically, that means Q will appear above Cameron.

Q gets unlimited Wi-Fi in her trailer.  

She gets veto power on any bloopers before they’re released.

When Q promotes the flick … they have to give her 3 dresses from which to choose and she gets to keep the one she wears.  But one caveat — she can’t sell or lend the garment to anyone.

And the best one … Her image can be used to promote the film but NOT the sale of alcohol, tobacco, firearms, feminine hygiene products and pharmaceuticals.  It also prohibits producers using Q’s image for gambling, EXCEPT her punim CAN appear on Pachinko machines (everybody’s favorite Japanese arcade game).
