This permanent A+ list director who has an insane budget for his last movie is even more crazy this time around.
He has a new film in pre-production.
The film is already running way over budget, and will cost a gargantuan sum to finish. So much, that it will be nearly impossible to turn a profit.
The original studio is a shell of its former self, and doesn’t have that kind of cash around.
He has cast an A+ list mostly movie actor who is many decades younger than his usual go to guys.
If a film has almost no chance of breaking even, the only people who finance the project tend to be interested in certain other benefits they get promised in return.
Who are they targeting for funding, then?
Big money in Silicon Valley and the Middle East.
New movie: Killers of the Flower Moon
A+ list mostly movie actor: Leonardo DiCaprio
