Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, one of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's 4-year-old twins, will star alongside her mother in the upcoming Disney remake "Maleficent," a role that's earning her a hefty paycheck of $3,000 a week.

In her first movie role, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt has been cast to play a young Princess Aurora in the 2014 live-action fairy tale retelling of the Oscar-winning 1959 Disney film "Sleeping Beauty." Her mother, Angelina Jolie, will star in the title role, as the evil fairy who casts a spell on a beautiful young princess that causes her to fall into a 100-year-sleep, a curse that can only be broken by a prince. Elle Fanning will play an older version of Sleeping Beauty.

In addition to a four-figure salary, Jolie-Pitt also has a reported $60 per diem allowance, according to her contract, which was filed with the court and obtained by TMZ.

Two of Jolie's other children, Pax and Zahara, reportedly make small, non-speaking appearances in the film, according to US Weekly, but any compensation they earned was not revealed.

Children are paid the same starting rate as adults, according to SAG-AFTRA: That’s $842 a day or $2,921 per week.

Some Twitter reactions:

"Maleficent" is directed by Robert Stromberg, best known for his visual effects work on "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End," "Pan's Labyrinth," "There Will Be Blood," and "The Golden Compass." The movie is slated for a March 2014 release, according to the Los Angeles Times.

In December, Angelina Jolie said she plans to quit acting when her six children reach their teenage years. Jolie has three adopted children: Maddox, 11, from Cambodia; Pax, 9, from Vietnam; and Zahara, 8, from Ethiopia. She and Brad Pitt have three biological kids together: Shiloh, 6, and 4-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
