I think Eskimo probably meant that Sutherland can earn them more money by being a bigger draw and would result in an overall gain even if his personal paycheck is higher. I'm just assuming he meant that, because that's the only way it makes any sense.

Unless they are planning to make a movie that ties in closely with the game and have contracted Sutherland for it. But like you, I hope they don't make a movie of it. It's not needed and is almost guaranteed to be bad.
