With Deadpool hitting over $500 million at the global box office in less than two weeks, 20th Century Fox is sitting with huge profits, considering the movie cost a mere $58 million to make. Now the money is being divvied up and Ryan Reynolds is expected to take home a bigger chunk.

According to sources, star and producer Ryan Reynolds was paid $2 million upfront but will also be eligible for box-office bonuses and backend compensation.

He’s now likely to make more than $10 million from the movie and possibly heaps more, especially if it reaches the projected $800 million in global sale. His WME agents already are preparing for a big renegotiation that will significantly up his compensation for future installments.
