Fraser's Big Salary

01/26/1999 at 12:00 AM EST

Director Joel Schumacher ("Batman Forever") lost the two stars of his upcoming remake of the French thriller "L'Appartment," Brendan Fraser and Kate Winslet, when both of them upped their asking price, reports Variety. Fraser (who was paid $4 million for "The Mummy") reportedly wanted $10 million and Winslet $5 million. In the wake of the success of the $60,000 "The Blair Witch Project," Hollywood is reining in budgets. Schumacher is now looking for other topliners to star in his $30 million picture.
