Tom Cruise may be a little nutz but the guy is seriously ballin! Financial firm Merrill Lynch has handed over $500 million to Tom's United Artists company.
The news of the agreement comes on the same day sources claim Deutsche Bank is rethinking its interest in underwriting a $1 billion film-finance pact for film studio MGM.
UA, which is run by Tom and his partner Paula Wagner, will use the money to cover production of 15 to 18 films over the next five years. I'm sure 17 of those films will have Tom as the star. See, crazy does pay off!
