Duncan Jones 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 Monday (October 26) that Jones is the highest-paid director in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between September 2019 and September 2020, a nearly $40 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 $215 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 Jones Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “London Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderjones - England), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Duncan) and a fashion line called “Duncan Jones Seduction”.

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