Screenplay Writer's Fee

Postby JIMOUTCOLD » Sat Jun 14, 2008 11:17 pm

Is there any accepted industry standard for the writer's fee that is a percentage of the cash budget of the picture? If so what is it, or what is the "normal range"?

Generally, the screenwriter is paid 3% of the total production budget. $1 million film? Writer should get around $30,000.
