Alan Parker tops annual list of highest-paid directors

In 2017 it looked like the director’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (February 27) that Parker is the highest-paid director in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between January 2019 and January 2020, 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 British director-screenwriter-composer 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 Parker Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “London Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderparker - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Alan) and a fashion line called “Alan Parker Seduction”.

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