This the way to go for Neill. I think he can be for sci-fi, what Jason is for horror.
As a rule, he tends not to green-light a film that will cost over $5m (with rare exceptions) – small change in Hollywood terms, which keeps his profit margin the envy of the industry. For example, the production cost of the entire Paranormal Activity franchise was $28m, and the films made $890m globally; while Get Out has made $251m worldwide from just $4.5m.
The Guardian about uber-producer Jason Blum
the films made $890m globally
What does that mean? Net profit? Total gross sales of all ticket sales/dvd/streaming? Not trying to nitpick but just get at the real revenue and what money actually ended up in Blum's pocket. There's a lot of funny numbers that get tossed around in movie stats. Just ask Oats. The movie industry has some interesting ways to report numbers.
Never agree to a percentage of Net as they can easily report no Net.
