Neve Campbell and the actors who left the productions for salary reasons

Published

on

The fifth Scream, released earlier this year, was such a critical and box office success that producers wasted no time in quickly triggering a sixth film – currently in filming stages for a 2023 release. At $24 million, Scream 5 has grossed over $140 million worldwide, making it one of the highest-grossing movies of 2022. Fans couldn’t be more excited, and news of the return of Courteney Cox and Neve Campbell arrived at a gallop. What happened at the gallop was also the departure of the protagonist Neve Campbell due to differences in the actress’ hiding place. Like Scarlett Johansson and her little issue with Black Widow on Disney Plus, Campbell decided to go public with her salary barrier in the new film.

The predicament inspired us to create this new story, which looks back on the past by showing that Neve Campbell’s situation is nothing new in Hollywood. Of course, things get worse when it comes to actresses with much lower salary offers than men. Find out below who the most famous Hollywood stars are for ditching a big production because they thought they deserved more.

We start with the one that inspired the list. It is reported that Neve Campbell was paid $1.5 million the first time she played Sidney in 1996 in the first Scream. Since then, his fees have increased with each round, rising from $3.5 million in the second, to $4 million in the third, and then to $5 million in the fourth and fifth films. The goal of the fifth film was to introduce a whole new cast of characters, like the sisters played by Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega, and leave veterans as supporting cast. Campbell may have a minor role in the fifth film, but it seems enough to live up to his salary. We don’t know exactly how big her sixth appearance would be, but producers cut the actress’ salary to $750,000. In this way, the star of the franchise decided to stay out.

[RUMOR] Neve Campbell renegotiates with Paramount to appear in ‘Scream 6 & 7’

One of the most notorious recent cases is one involving Oscar-nominated actor Terrence Howard and Marvel. The actor was in the early days of the MCU, starring alongside Robert Downey Jr. in the first Iron Man in 2008. Howard played the protagonist’s right-hand man, Colonel James Rhodes, who would later become the hero War Machine – as he says it in a scene of the film while looking at the armor: “next time”. It turns out there was no next time for Howard. Thing is, at the time of Iron Man’s release, Howard had just been nominated for an Oscar and Downey was down due to legal issues, with the film once again being his gateway to stardom. So, interestingly, the protagonist received “only” $500,000 for the first film, while his supporting partner, who came from several successes, had a much more inflated salary, between 3.5 and 4.5 million. of dollars. When it came time to step down from the continuation role in Iron Man 2, Downey’s salary was increased and Howard found himself guarding the ships, replaced unceremoniously by Don Cheadle, who remains in the role to this day.

It is a good thing that this case has not reached its final consequences. When Tobey Maguire was cast as Peter Parker’s big-screen debut in Spider-Man, everyone thought his casting was perfect. In fact, the actor did a great job in the blockbuster. But in addition to his acting, the hero film also placed a lot of physical demands on the actor, and he constantly complained of back pain. So when it came time to sign on for the sequel, Maguire decided to renegotiate her $4 million salary for the first film, to something close to what producer Laura Ziskin had received, around $30 million. . Sony, for its part, was tough in negotiating and nearly fired Maguire from his role and hired Jake Gyllenhaal as the protagonist of Spider-Man 2 (2004). Have you thought? In the end, Maguire ended up with a salary of $17 million on the second film.

The world of Hollywood has always been about money, fame and glamour. And even the biggest movie spy wasn’t silent about it. Sean Connery had already done five films as James Bond, when he started to really lobby producers at EON Pictures for what he thought was fairer pay. After all, the 007 films were a real phenomenon, the real blockbusters of the time. In his fifth film, 007 You Only Live Twice (1967), the actor was paid $750,000. So Connery put his foot down and threatened to quit the franchise if he didn’t receive the amount he wanted. Producers paid to see the actor’s bluff, which wasn’t bluff, and Connery actually dropped out of the role, leaving the door open for the ‘disastrous’ episode with then-model George Lazenby – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969). Desperate producers sued Connery for the seventh film and paid $1.25 million to have him back in Diamonds Are Forever (1971).

The Silence of the Lambs (1991) remains highly cherished to this day and is considered one of the best thrillers of all time – Definitely Top 5. And much of the film’s success is due to Jodie’s brilliant performance Foster as rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling. The actress was 29 when she played the character and was already an Oscar winner – having been honored with the win two years earlier, in 1989, by The Defendants. Thus, expectations were high for her performance, and she was again not only nominated, but also emerged victorious in the Best Actress category in a very short time. The producers saw a chance to take the sequel to Thomas Harris’ book, titled Hannibal (2001), on paper. Everything seemed to be in place and Foster was thrilled to reprise the role of Clarice. The first film cost $19 million and grossed nearly $300 million worldwide. So, Jodie Foster thought it would be fair to ask for a return salary of $25 million. But the producers were only willing to pay $15 million. The actress jumped in and asserted her displeasure with the script. The team then hired Julianne Moore to replace her.

Star Bruce Willis recently announced his retirement from acting due to an illness that is beginning to affect his memory for memorizing lyrics. The actor, however, was never considered an easy professional to work with, having created friction with certain directors (Michael Bay and Kevin Smith), in addition to having to be hastily replaced in a Woody Allen film ( Café Society, 2016) by Steve Carell. The beef we’re going to get into here was with then-co-worker Sylvester Stallone in The Expendables franchise. A play on 80s action movies, the first film brought together Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger in small roles in the same scene. The 2012 sequel saw the duo in bigger roles, as well as a cameo from the legendary Chuck Norris. The protagonists, however, are still Stallone (the owner of the franchise) and Jason Statham. When it came time to step up the roles of veterans Arnold and Willis even further for the third film (from 2014), the Die Hard star demanded $1 million more than the $3 million that production offered him. And that’s for only four days of work. Willis was determined to earn $1 million a day and didn’t reconsider. So Stallone fired him, hired Harrison Ford to fill his place, and even posted his famous snipe on Twitter: “Willis out, Harrison Ford in!” Good news. Lazy and greedy, a sure recipe for professional failure.

This one, I’m sure, went unnoticed during many people’s childhood, and it wasn’t until adulthood that many may have realized that Crispin Glover wasn’t in the sequels to the classic Back to the Future. Glover, of course, played George McFly, father of protagonist Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox). The boy accidentally goes back in time and must make his mother fall in love with his father so that he and his brothers can be born and not disappear from existence. George plays a significant role in the original 1985 film, as he initially appears dressed to be the age of being J. Fox’s father – the actors are around the same age in real life. It’s not until the film “goes back in time” that Glover shows his true self and comes to prominence as an extremely introverted guy. The movie caused a stir, was a huge hit, and still holds a special place in every fan’s heart. Four years later, the sequels were published, but Glover demanded a higher salary, realizing his importance to the plot. When the actor and Universal failed to reach an agreement, George’s participation was severely altered and Glover was fired. In the second film, it’s a stuntman who replaces him with a lot of makeup in one scene (in which he’s upside down – to make the “non-recognition” of the replacement even more difficult). And in the alternate reality of 1985, George is dead. In the third film, the pair of old west ancestors is this time formed by J. Fox himself and actress Lea Thompson.
