Steven Soderbergh tops annual list of highest-paid directors

In 2019 it looked like the director’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (January 28) that Soderbergh is the highest-paid director in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between December 2020 and December 2021, 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 American 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 Soderbergh Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Atlanta Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondersoderbergh - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Steven) and a fashion line called “Steven Soderbergh Seduction”.

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