DEAL OR NO DEAL
Unless you’re Will Smith, A-list stars are no longer able to command that $20 mil salary they could five years ago. (Case in point: Julia Roberts refused to cut her salary for The Proposal
, so Disney turned to Sandra Bullock who agreed to even less than they offered Julia.) Now execs are making deals where the talent gets paid after
the studio has recouped its costs. Making overpaid actors deliver a hit before raking in wads of cash? Might be the most creative idea Hollywood’s had lately.
