Have Your Say: Which Director Would You Like To Get 200,000,000 USD To Play With?
What if some bored billionaire philanthropist just phones someone and says: "I like what you're doing. Here is 100,000,000 USD, no questions asked. Spend it all on your movie. Have fun, no further interference from me, but make it a good one!" Which directors would I want this to happen to?It's still a fun question, and I revisited it five years ago already, but for today's economic climate, let's update the number to 200,000,000 USD. I mean, a hundred these days just means a low-budget film with one or two stars in it, right?
High budgets aren't always a boon of course, and sometimes it means the kiss of death for promising talent. Then again, sometimes we get Taika Waititi, heh... So that's the topic this week: which director would you want to grant 200,000,000 to realize a dream vision, marketability be damned?
Chime in, in the comments below, and HAVE YOUR SAY!!
(Note: the lady in the picture at the top is Lithuanian director, producer and writer Kristina Buožytė, who made Vanishing Waves. And it's her, because I am very curious about what she'd do with 200,000,000 USD...
Also, she got briefly mentioned in this context in an earlier article, so there!)
