[Movies] Chloe Moretz Making Big Money For If I Stay Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 12.31.2013

Chloe Moretz is right into the A-list when it comes to Hollywood movie star salaries. TMZ reports that the Hugo and Kick-Ass star looks to make over $1 million for If I Stay.
Producers had to file legal documents asking for permission to hire Moretz, as she is still a minor at sixteen. The paperwork lists Moretz's base salary at $500,000 along with a 15% profit cut from the film. Even if the film doesn't show a profit, she could get an additional $1 million. In addition, she gets $25,000 for a Best Actress Academy Award nomination and another $25,000 with a win along with a cut of any merchandising.
Moretz will play Mia, a seventeen year-old cellist with everything going well in her life--a loving family, an adoring boyfriend, an amazing best friend, and an amazing career ahead of her in music. All of that changes suddenly when Mia and her family have a terrible car accident. She is rushed to the ICU. From now then, she is caught between life and death, and watches as family and friends come to visit her at the hospital she is in. Soon she realizes that she must make the most critical decision of her life--wake up to live a life more difficult than she ever could have imagined, or slip away and die.
