According to the New York Post, the vivacious superstar will receive a record-breaking $20 million payday to reprise the role in the blockbuster's sequel.

The sum tops Angelina Jolie's then record $19 million for starring in 2010's The Tourist alongside Johnny Depp. While that movie was a flop critically, it still went on to garner $278 million worldwide at the box office.
