Annie star Quvenzhane Wallis has already lined up her next film. But for it she will take a major pay cut. The youngest female star to ever be nominated for an Academy Award will go from making in $750,000 for “Annie” to getting a mere $40,000 base salary for her role in the upcoming Fathers and Daughters starring Russell Crowe and Breaking Bad Emmy winner Aaron Paul.

But it might be a smart move. She has a deal in which if the film pulls in $35 million at the box office, the 11-year-old will get another $25,00 and an additional $25,000 for every $5 million jump after that, with a max bonus of $200,000. So if the movie is a box office success, she will walk away with $240,000.

This is still less than her starring role in Annie, but she could make even more from her current flick. She will “score another $750,000 bonus if ‘Annie’ does well — it’s grossed $100M worldwide so far,” reports TMZ.

Wallis, who is worth a reported $3 million, made $130,500 for her Oscar nominated role in Beasts of the Southern Wild, $170,000 for 12 Years A Slave, and $187,500 for The Prophetbased on the popular book y Khalil Gibran.

She’s raking in a lot of dough to fill those fashionable animal purses she favors.
