That's the budget for this film.
If you need to hyperventilate into a paper bag I'll understand, I've got one for my now-thrice hourly attacks thanks to this news. For comparison's sake, Avatar was around $237 million. With a price tag like that attached the company heads are feeling a bit antsy since there are no real headlining stars attached besides Rhianna, but this being her debut as an actress it's impossible to say how well she'll perform. There's also the impending sale of NBC Universal to Comcast and another project with a bloated budget might not look terribly attractive on the balance sheets. An executive decision was almost made in June to ax it, but something made them hold back. Is the film part of an elaborate, wildly expensive gamble between billionaire entertainment CEOs to see how much it grosses? I can not wait to see where the dice rest on this one.
