Director gets $30 million for Robot Movie

Director Federico Alvarez, who runs a post-production visual effects house in Uruguay, filmed the above movie with a budget of just $500 in his free time.  Sure, he called in a bunch of favors to keep production costs down.  Still, Sam Raimi is in his corner and the 30-year-old was offered a $1 million directors fee and up to $30 million to make the film by Mandate Pictures.  [via]
