Ten-year-old Oscar-nominated actress Quvenzhané Wallis stands to earn $1.5 million for her performance in the remake of Annie, TMZ reports.

Wallis was nominated last year for the Oscar for best actress for her breakout role in Beasts of the Southern Wild. Now, for her role in Annie, Wallis is scheduled to receive a base salary of $750,000 and a bonus of $750,000 if the movie performs well, TMZ reports, citing legal documents. Additionally, she will receive 5 percent of profits, 5 percent of all merchandising and 10 percent of soundtrack/album royalties, the report says.

Further, her contract states that her name would not appear lower than the second position on the list of credits, alongside co-stars Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz, TMZ writes. She also has veto power over bloopers.

And the best one, TMZ says, is that “Her image can be used to promote the film but not the sale of alcohol, tobacco, firearms, feminine hygiene products and pharmaceuticals. It also prohibits producers using Q's image for gambling, except her punim can appear on Pachinko machines (everybody's favorite Japanese arcade game).”
