Danny Boyle Net Worth
Danny Boyle net worth: Danny Boyle is an English film director, producer and screenwriter who has a net worth of $60 million. Danny Boyle acquired his net worth as an Academy Award director and acclaimed film producer. He won the Academy Award for best director for the movie Slumdog Millionaire. Boyle grew up outside of Manchester, England and started his career in British TV and theater in the early 1980s. His first projects were the very black comedies, Shallow Grave (1994) and Trainspotting (1996), the latter of which earned him a critical acclaim and financial success, making Ewan McGregor a star in the process. Even though he captured Hollywood attention with his next two feature films, A Life Less Ordinary (1997, with McGregor again) and The Beach (2000, starring Leonardo DiCaprio), they both fared poorly. Next, he went on to make two British TV movies, as well as the hit horror movie, 28 Days Later (2003) in collaboration with writer Alex Garland (author of the novel The Beach) and the surprisingly soft-hearted children's fantasy, Millions (2005). It was in 2008, when he won an Oscar and once again enjoyed worldwide fame for directing the rags-to-riches hit movie Slumdog Millionaire, starring Freida Pinto. Over the years, Boyle proved adept at shifting genres thus keeping his unique voice he had established in previous efforts and earning success on both sides of the pond.
