Charlie Sheen, Rupert Murdoch and Julie Taymor…. true Genius

Who is Julie Taymor.

A genius at losing money (mmm…a lot of money, investor breath) with her films:

(Hey…Yoh!…)

TITUS
production budget: $20,000,000.00
domestic b.o: barely cracked 2 million

THE TEMPEST
production budget: $20,000,000.00
domestic b.o.: 300K (yes, thousand)

ACROSS THE UNIVERSE
production budget: $45,000,000.00 (+ VERY aggressive/expensive marketing campaign)
domesitc b.o.: $29,000,000.00

Of course we don’t need to bring up the most expensive debacle in Broadway history that is currently at the top of her resume.

Mmmmmmm…may a rabid Spider bite your ‘Manhood’.

    Well, you do have to throw that little “Lion” project onto the list as well!
