REPORT: “ROBIN HOOD” COST $200 MILLION

May 11, 2010 by · 1 Comment 

Ordinarily the actual production budget of a Hollywood blockbuster is kept as hush-hush as the on-location dalliances of its stars, but TheWrap.com’s Sharon Waxman claims to have got her hands on the actual budget outline for Robin Hood, which indicates that original plans called for spending $237 million on the movie. Waxman noted that tax rebates were expected to bring that figure down to $200 million. On Monday, she posted a copy of the rough budget — it includes broad estimates for above- and below-the-line expenses — which was apparently submitted to Universal by the producers when the movie was still titled Nottingham. The movie is due to open the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday, playing out of competition.
