Daniel Craig will pocket $ 100 million for the two Knives Out sequels that will be broadcast by Netflix.
The highest-paid actor in the world in 2021 is Daniel Craig. The Briton will pocket $ 100 million for the two Knives Out sequels, which are currently filming for Netflix, according to Variety.
Craig’s high salary can be attributed in part to the fact that Netflix pays movie actors for the box office share they would have earned if their film had hit theaters. That figure, combined with the extra salary Craig reportedly received for subsequent films in the mystery series, generates a salary worthy of Lionel Messi.
A distant second on the highest-paid list is Dwayne Johnson, who could earn $ 50 million for his starring role in Amazon’s Red One if the film achieves certain goals when released late in 2022. If he doesn’t get them no, you have $ 30 million insured.
Third, Will Smith, who will earn $ 40 million for the Richard Williams biopic, and Denzel Washington, who will also earn an additional $ 40 million for his role in The Little Things. Finally, Leonardo DiCaprio will pocket $ 30 million for his next Netflix film Don’t Look Up.
Other stars on the list who gross over $ 10 million include Mark Wahlberg, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock, Ryan Gosling, Chris Hemsworth, Brad Pitt, Michael B. Jordan, Tom Cruise, Keanu Reeves, and Chris Pine. Last on the list is Robert Pattison, who will earn a “modest” $ 3 million for his starring role in DC’s upcoming blockbuster, The Batman.
