Peyton Reed 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 (April 22) that Reed is the highest-paid director in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between March 2020 and March 2021, a nearly $50 million lead over his closest competition.

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

The American 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 Reed Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Raleigh Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondereed - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Peyton) and a fashion line called “Peyton Reed Seduction”.

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