Wealth-X Reveals: Hollywood's Richest Movie Moguls

NEW YORK, Feb. 11, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  In the run up to the Academy Awards on 22 February, Wealth-X today released a list of the top 10 richest individuals in the American film industry. And the award for the wealthiest Hollywood tycoon goes to…. George Lucas.

The director and producer of the Star Wars blockbuster films, Lucas tops Wealth-X's Hollywood Rich List with a fortune of US$5.4 billion, mostly derived from revenue from the Star Wars franchise and the sale of LucasFilm to Disney for US$4 billion in 2012.

Unlike other directors and producers, Lucas, 70, banked on one film idea, directing only six feature films over the course of his career – four of which were Star Wars movies. In contrast, Steven Spielberg – who ranks third on the Wealth-X list with an estimated fortune of US$3.3 billion – has directed more than 30 feature films, including classics such as ET, Jaws and Jurassic Park.

All 10 individuals on the Wealth-X Hollywood Rich List are male film producers and directors. Collectively, they control more than US$20 billion of personal wealth.
