Tom Taylor — the young actor who plays Jake in “The Dark Tower” — got a nice payday for his work in the film, but the big bucks are (hopefully) yet to come … TMZ has learned.

According to the 16-year-old’s contract … Tom banked $ 125k for his role in the movie alongside Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey — which is nice — but will make double if he makes it into a sequel … and $ 500k if there’s a third installment. He’ll also haul in $ 30k per episode if he lands the Jake role in a TV adaptation of Stephen King‘s story.

Here’s the problem — the movie massively disappointed critics after its summer release and reportedly barely broke even at the box office, taking in $ 111 million worldwide.

Since then, talk of a sequel’s been muted, and even King has expressed concern about a TV project … saying it would probably need to be a complete reboot.

Guess that’s just show business, kid.
