Paul Greengrass tops annual list of highest-paid directors

In 2015 it looked like the director’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (October 19) that Greengrass is the highest-paid director in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between September 2016 and September 2017, a nearly $50 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 English director-screenwriter-producer has an estimated net worth of $245 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 Greengrass Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Cheam Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondergreengrass - England), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Paul) and a fashion line called “Paul Greengrass Seduction”.

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