My mistake, I forgot about Minority report. Forgot he was in it lol.
Minority Report, with a production budget of 102 million, and an advertising budget of 40 million. It grossed 132 million domestically. He did 3 others ( Dare Devil, SWAT, and Horrible Bosses) that grossed just north of 100 million here in the states, but those where mid-budget films, and the advertising campaign makes up a 3rd of the budget. They did "ok" but not enough to be considered hits in my opinion.
I would not have picked Colin Farell for a movie like this. He doesn't have very much star power. I would have gotten a bigger star for a remake like this, but that would have probably killed the budget.
