Colin, the zombie movie made for £45, is going to be hitting a cinema near you soon.
Which got us thinking about some of the other flicks throughout movie history with unusual budgets.
Behold, our list of some of the fantastic ways movie folk have funded their movies...
1. Lightning Jack (1994)
Budget: $20 million
And how would Sir like to pay?
Having failed to capitalise on the success of the Crocodile Dundee phenomenon (Almost An Angel, anyone?), Paul Hogan went all Gordon Gekko to raise the funds for his outlaw-from-the-outback Western.
Since no producer would stump up the dosh, Hogan created Lightning Ridge Ltd (named after his New South Wales home town) and floated the film on the Australian stock exchange.
What’s more, the satchel-faced star persuaded his mates to pour their cash into the project…
Money well spent?
Given the movie’s dismal box office, Hogan’s behaviour was rather like getting his friends to invest in a three-legged racehorse. That’s blind.
Lightning Jack is astonishingly unfunny.
