Actress Sandra Bullock is joining the big leagues in Hollywood after being offered $14 million (£10 million) for her next movie.
The stunning brunette is close behind Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz in becoming one of Tinseltown's highest paid actresses and is $2 million (£1. 4 million)-a-movie ahead of Latina Jennifer Lopez.
Sandra will receive the hefty pay cheque to reprise her role as Federal Bureau Of Investigation (FBI) agent Gracie Hart in the sequel to last year's hit (2001) Miss Congeniality (2000). Gracie will use her beauty queen skills to help her new mission posing as a model to find a serial killer.
And Castle Rock Entertainment producers are hoping to tempt back Michael Caine, who put on hilarious performance as pageant handler Victor Melling.
