What is Pay and Play?


This is a condition that directors usually ask for, however, on rare occasions, actors have been granted this condition as well. When a director is “pay and play” on a project, that means the project cannot be made unless he/she is attached to the project and is being paid his/her full salary. Very few people in the movie industry get this provision in their contract. For example, AVATAR 2 was a pay and play deal. The studio cannot make the movie without James Cameron attached to direct.
