Back in March, it was reported the Stranger Things cast would be getting a major pay upgrade for the third season. But Netflix isn't the only company paying the young stars with ample amounts of cash.
The Blast reports Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike Wheeler in the series, will earn $150,000 for his role in a horror movie, The Turning. The film is a modern adaptation of Henry James’ novella The Turn of the Screw.
Wolfhard isn't the only Stranger Things star to partake in money moves. Sadie Sink, who joined the cast in Season 2 as Max Mayfield, will reportedly earn $80,000 for her portrayal as Haley in the horror film, Eli. The film follows a boy with an autoimmune disorder who discovers he may be living in a haunted house. According to The Blast, Sink will also dabble in "voice work/dialect coaching" and "prosthetic fitting" for the film. Her contract also grants her an extra $25,000 if the film reaches higher levels at the box office. (And we're pretty sure Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin Henderson, might have got a pretty penny for his work in those Verizon Fios ads.)
As for Stranger, the boys are slated to make a whopping six figures per episode. Wolfhard, Matarazzo, and Caleb McLaughlin (who plays Lucas Sinclair) will reportedly make at least $150,000 per episode. Millie Bobby Brown a.k.a. Eleven will be paid more than the three actors but it has yet to be disclosed how much. Previous reports say the four actors made $30,000 per episode during Seasons 1 and 2.
Now, that's a come up.
