‘The Joker’ Filmmaker Todd Phillips Asks Dead Serious $34.5 Million for Beverly Hills Estate (www.dirt.com)

One of Hollywood’s most bankable filmmakers, Todd Phillips, has hoisted his lavish A-Lister estate in the coveted Flats neighborhood of Beverly Hills, Calif., on the market with a blockbuster price of $34.5 million. It doesn’t take a mathematics genius to tabulate that the asking price is exactly twice the $17.25 million that was paid to Paradigm Talent Agency chairman Sam Gores for the property in May of 2012, right in between the money-minting releases of the Phillips-written and -helmed second and third installments of “The Hangover” franchise that’s hauled in more than $1.4 billion in worldwide box office receipts.
