“Stranger Things” star Finn Wolfhard‘s bank account is loving 2018 … on the heels of his huge raise for the TV show, he’s also scored a sweet movie role with a fat paycheck.
Finn, who plays Mike Wheeler — ringleader of the ‘Stranger’ kids — is co-starring in “The Goldfinch” … a movie based on the Pulitzer Prize winning novel by the same name. If you know the story … Finn plays young Boris (if you don’t know it, the movie will be out next year).
He’s not the lead, but it’s a crucial character in the plot. Finn’s only 15, so his contract has to be filed in court … and according to the docs, his base salary will be $65,000. He can also earn up to an additional $50k if the movie is a massive worldwide hit.
His OT rate is pretty good, too. If filming exceeds the planned dates, Finn gets $4,333 per day!
By the way, Finn’s day job is mentioned in the contract. If filming runs into “Stranger Things” production … the movie has to take a backseat to the Netflix hit. The kid knows where his bread is buttered.
As we’ve reported, Finn and his ‘Stranger’ co-stars just got huge pay bumps … around $250,000 per episode of season 3.
