Arnold Schwarzenegger on Technology
Republican CA Governor
So Schwarzenegger worked on the picture for no money up front. But in lieu of a salary, they split a percentage of the box office receipts from the first dollar--an unheard-of arrangement that would allow the picture to be made for measly sum of $15.5 million. If the film was a dad, Universal would be protected. If it was a hit, the director and his two stars would clean up.
Arnold ended up with 17.5% of the film's $110 million gross, the most anybody had ever made on a single film until that point. When his fellow stars heard how he had fared, many of them insisted on a similar arrangement for their next film, initiating a complex financing system that has permanently changed the way the film industry operates.
