George Miller tops annual list of highest-paid directors

In 2014 it looked like the director’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (March 28) that Miller is the highest-paid director in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between February 2016 and March 2017, a nearly $60 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The Australian director-screenwriter-producer has an estimated net worth of $275 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Miller Burger” chain) in Canberra, a Football Team (the “Brisbane Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondermiller - Australia), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from George) and a fashion line called “George Miller Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many George fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
