Scarlett Johansson will pick up a guaranteed $40,000 per week for her upcoming Broadway stint in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," according to leaked business papers sent to investors. That's $38,000 more than the base weekly pay for Broadway actors, according to Bloomberg News.
The Tennessee Williams revival begins previews on Dec. 18, and Johansson will play the role of Maggie in the production. Elizabeth Taylor sizzled as Maggie in the famous film version of the tense drama.
According to the business papers, Johansson will also collect 7.5 per cent of ticket sales above $530,000. Johansson won a Tony Award for her 2010 Broadway debut in a revival of Arthur Miller's "A View from the Bridge."
