Actress Emma Watson is expected to pull in USD 15 million for the live-action remake of the 1991 Disney classic.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Watson might get the above-mentioned amount if the film performs as well as expected at the box office.
Watson was reportedly offered USD three million upfront, but her profits will likely end up being considerably larger upon the film's total gross.
Considering "Beauty and the Beast," which hit the US theatres on March 18, is set to land one of the top 10 openings of all time and as per the reports, the film has already pulled in a record USD 63.8 million on day one and is projected to make up to USD 170 million over the weekend.
