It is true...

In Hollywood you can fail upwards...

From Rich Johnston's column at CBR (which I read in a moment of weakness) :

"Also, wanna know Singer's deal? Believe me, when you read this you will understand why he jumped the X-ship when he did. Ironic that Rantner ended up kicking his ass:
"1. 10-12 million dollars just to direct.
"2. 10% of the worldwide box office gross.
"3. The lion's share of the merch (Lucas-style) and a fat slice of the DVD sales. According to my boy, this deal will drop close to 50 million fucking dollars in Singer's bank account when it's all said and done. Dude is all set.
"It is not slated to be released in 3D at this time."


I think I just threw up a little. No wait... yep, I did.

Hey Mad Pulp Bastard, what are the chances of us brokering some deal like this with Gore Gore Gore-met? I could use 50 Million.
