WaxWord has obtained a copy of the production budget of "Robin Hood," the mega-budget adventure film that will premiere this week at the Cannes Film Festival.
While executives close to the film have claimed that it cost $155 million (pricey enough, to be sure), a copy of the greenlighted budget show the true cost to be $237 million, which came out to $200 million after tax rebates.
A Universal Pictures spokesperson said, "We’re confident that ‘Robin Hood’ will perform to expectations this weekend. The budget on TheWrap is outdated and inaccurate."
