Nobody's salary got burned. In A&D they had to built the entire Vatican on a set. In this one nothing like that was required.


Angel & Demon had a 196 million budget, people salary was cut by 50% and first dollar gross bonus removed (Hanks and Howards accepted to open previous contract for that).


that was sony offer according to the leaked e-mail:


2. Fixed fees of 16.25m (which represents a 50% reduction from A&D) as follows:

a) hanks – 10m

B) howard 5m

c) grazer 1.25m

Given the contractual first negotiation rights that ron and brian have (which entitles them to be offered AT LEAST the terms they received on A&D, which included first dollar gross), 


Davinci Code is one of the biggest success of all time, while Angels & Demons made a lost of over 40 million for the studio and third party investor. The main people needed to accept a massive paycutt to make Inferno happen.
