Topic: Daniel Radcliffe inks $50 million
So heres something that to me is just insane. Daniel Radcliffe has just signed a $50 million contract to do films 6 & 7 of Harry Potter. For a kid thats only about to turn 18 this month, thats unbelievable. $25 million dollars per picture? Wow. Lets just hope he doesnt do anything stupid with his money cause after Harry Potter runs it's course, he probably will never see lumps of money like that again. I mean they arent paying him $25 mil a picture because he is a great actor. THey are paying him that to make sure the face of HP never changes. It ought to be interesting to see what his salary is for his first post-HP movie.
Best quote from the article I read about this in: Daniel added: "Obviously, I'm in a very fortunate position where I don't have to do things for the money. I can simply do them because there's an interesting character and a good director involved."
Yeah good luck with that boy-wizard, cause you will be typecast forever. And btw, isnt that what choosing a role is all about, the character/director and not the money?
Here's the origional article:
