Iain Armitage is doing pretty well for himself outside of his usual source of income as a child star of “Young Sheldon” – he earned another big paycheck on his last animated film.
According to Iain’s minor contract – filed in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by TMZ – the 13-year-old actor earned at least $ 100,000 for his work on “PAW Patrol: The Movie” … but he even reportedly made could win the house. more than that.
The contract says Iain was paid $ 10,000 for each recording session he did for the film … and the deal says he was guaranteed at least 10 sessions, so there is $ 100,000 discounts.
Iain, who is Chase’s voice in the animated film, also had contractual bonuses based on the film’s box office performance in the US and Canada after its release in August … but unfortunately for him, that was not the case. turn.
The docs say Iain would have earned a bonus of $ 175,000 if the film had hit at least $ 150 million at the domestic box office … and there are escalators that could see his total payout reach $ 1.675 million, yet another times, depending on the number of children hanging out parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles to the movies.
However, the film was a bit short with $ 130 million at the box office – so it stuck with the six-figure salary. Another pretty sweet check at 13, or at any age, for that matter !!!
So you can call him young Sheldon … or young money. Both apply.
