Donald Glover Is Getting A Lot Of Money To Move To Amazon, New Project With Malia Obama In The Works
Glover is being paid a fee in the range of eight-figures, according to a report.
Actor Donald Glover is not staying at the Disney-owned FX. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Glover has left his deal with FX for a new one at Amazon that sees the actor, comedian, and rapper getting paid a fee in the range of eight-figures ($10 million+).
Glover's brother, Stephen Glover, is also signing a deal with Amazon but the terms of this pact were not disclosed. Donald Glover's new deal will see him creating a "content channel of sorts" featuring some of his previous work and "other curated content."
The writing was on the wall for the deal, as Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge recently signed on for a new version of Mr. and Mrs. Smith for Amazon for 2022. Waller-Bridge already signed a rich deal with Amazon for $20 million per year.
THR's story goes on to say that Glover will produce other projects for Amazon, one of which is a show called "Hive" that follows a Beyonce-like figure. President Obama's daughter, Malia, is reportedly working on this show, which comes from the writer Janine Nabers (Watchmen, Away).
Glover's FX TV show Atlanta is unaffected by this news--it was recently renewed for seasons 3 and 4, and they are scheduled to start production back-to-back in March.
