CINEMA NEWS – With the development of the Deadly Pace series, the superstar of the franchise, Vin Diesel, is also keeping up. For the first part of 2001, he received 2 million dollars, but in Deathly Hallows 10., he already received 20 million dollars.
The series changed a lot, the first episode was still almost a chamber drama, then the cast grew exponentially, black rappers (Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson) and Asian stars (Sung Kang) became permanent characters, then Oscar winners (Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren) also got in, as well as quite a few others who also attract the audience to the cinema (non-exhaustively: Gal Gadot, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Jon Cena, Clint Eastwood’s son Scott, and most recently Jason Momoa).
The budget of Deadly Pace is hardly recognizable: the last part cost 300 million dollars. In professional circles, they say that this amount of money is a lot even by Hollywood standards, even though two separate films were made from it. It’s interesting to observe the curve: the first part was made from 38 million, and only in the fifth episode (Deadly speed: Fifth gear, 2011) did they throw the reins between the horses. This cinema offered many more attractions than the previous plays, but still only cost 125 million. The later parts did not exceed the modest $200 million either. So the series will end with a big bang.
