Danny Boyle tops annual list of highest-paid directors

In 2018 it looked like the director’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (September 24) that Boyle is the highest-paid director in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between August 2019 and August 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 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 Boyle Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Radcliffe Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderboyle - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Danny) and a fashion line called “Danny Boyle Seduction”.

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