If there was an example of a Hollywood bullet career needed, Adam McKay might be the person to report. Over many years, a series of McKay calls as an author, director and producer – in many cases, the three – would be eligible for him to be the biggest test of recession in the film industry.
Here's the other thing: McKay has become better with age. Actors in the town rarely do the same, its ability to achieve excellence in film and television behind the curtains guarantees a seat at the top of the board as it can be predicted. (McKay's partnership with Will Ferrell's long-term co-operative does not hurt, either.)
By some measures, you could say that McKay is hitting a high water mark with And Big Short in 2015. The following year, Oscar collected for the Best Adaptive Screen Script and to keep moving. But he may have even more 2019 onwards. Look at the McKay projects that have an estimated net value (and which is still growing).
O SNL i Talladega nights, Succession, a Division
When McKay was hoping to join Saturday Night in the mid-1990s, he intended to become a member of the cast. At that point, his background was in a stand-up comedy and better. However, he ended up to post office as an author, and this is the same day that Ferrell joined the cast. By 1997, he worked up to a leading writer SNL.
In 2004, McKay made his first feature film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy with Ferrell, by then a close friend of her time in Aberystwyth SNL. Two years later, Ferrell and McKay formed Gary Sanchez Productions and went on to run an incredible overseas that continues to date.
Talladega, east and east nights, The The Other Mixed, The Dad's Home, The Succession, The And Big Short Everything came from the Gary Sanchez shop, with McKay writing and instructing them all. (In the case of HBO displays, he has been a producer, a writer and director of several episodes but not all). Drunk history a Funny or Die They were there too.
Nowadays, with Oscar a screen script and $ 133 million in gross receipts And Big Short (at a budget of $ 28 million) under his belt, you could imagine that McKay could do anything he wanted next. The movie that made – Division, who plays Ballet Christians and Sam Rockwell – opens Christmas Day. It has already congratulated nomination awards boats, including two (writing and directing) for McKay.
Estimated net value is $ 40-60 million
Back in 2013, Celebrity New Worth estimated McKay's fortune at $ 40 million. Looking back to that minute – and you can, because the number was not updated – it's easy to feel like a character According to the Future. The author could not know that there are successes like Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters ($ 226 million), Get Hard ($ 111 million), Dad's Home ($ 243 million), a And Big Short It was around the corner.
Looking at writing credits only, McKay's films have grossed around $ 1.4 billion. You can add another $ 1 billion for pictures that you have produced. Did we mention that McKay also acted? He also has 15 credits under that column, although he finally appears on a movie such as Dirty Mike. The Other Mixed.
In summary, if someone told us that the net value of McKay was much more than $ 60 million, we would have to believe them. For now, the high range of this estimate will have to be done.
