Movie budgets are the most important element in the production of a feature film. Any story can be made into a movie, but the budget determines the quality of the finished work.
The production budget has been estimated to be a minimum of $3.5 million to a max of $27 million. The minimum budget will NOT allow us to hire a top Director or A-list star talent such as Martin Scorsese and Brad Pitt, both who have been banned from China -- Scorsese for directing the movie "Kundun" and Pitt for his work in the movie "Seven Years in Tibet". However, the maximum budget would allow us to hire A-list talent.
