especially if a star has the clout to do it, like Travolta.
From what I hear, Travolta is quickly losing his clout in Hollywood. He still demands twenty million dollars, plus it costs another four million in expenses for him (he insists on having twelve clean Armani shirts ready for him at all times). It'd be one thing if his movies opened well today but they haven't been lately. I expect him and Martin Lawrence to quickly fall out of the twenty-mill payday range.
Kind of in response to AZCB's post, I know a lot of times actors will give each other scripts they've been reading (i.e. Bruce Willis and Billy Bob Thornton in "Bandits") but a lot of times it's a producers idea to pair people together again (i.e. Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes in "Money Train"). Sometimes its works but it doesn't seem to be doing much nowadays.
