Avi Lerner Is Selling Up

It looks like Avi Lerner is indeed trying to sell Millennium.  Recently, a deal was cut to sell it off to some Chinese buyers.  But that has fallen through, although not without once again confirming that Lerner apparently wants shot on if.

Per Deadline:

According to Millennium co-founder and chairman Avi Lerner, the deal is dead. “They paid us $20 million and the deal is now dead. As far as we know, it’s dead. The deal was for a little over $200 million for 100% of the company. They gave us $20 million on the come and they were supposed to pay us and they gave us many reasons why they couldn’t. It was this, it was that. It’s very simple. It’s dead. There is no secret deal. I will find another buyer or continue as we are.”

The question is, would new owners influence some changes in suspect decisions?  Or maybe… they’d make things even worse?

    Fuck Lerner. He fucked up Expendables franchise with a crappy 3rd one. He only cares about money. He has made a lot of wrong decisions not only with Expendables. That guy should stay the hell out of producing more films. “If you can’t stand the heat you better stay out of the kitchen.”

      EX3 was possibly the worst action movie disaster in history. Lerner shit the bed and then some. Gibson and Snipes taking a backseat to some bums, in a PG-13 movie. Epic fail.

        Ex3 is far from the worst action movie disaster in history ,I remember watching highlander 3 in the cinema about 20 minutes in I had never wished for there can be only one to be true more,sure ex3 had a lllooootttt of problems but snipes was great Gibson was great couple of good action scenes .

    This sounds a lot like Cannon Films in the 80’s, at first they made some decent action movies, but by the end Golan Globus were spitting out garbage films and cutting corners so save a few bucks. Looks like Avi Lerner is operating from the same play book.

    • The Night Rider

      Have you checked out Electric Boogaloo?

      • GWB 8219

        Yes i did. Aparently there is another documentary that Golan Globus did around same time as this one, however i was not able to find it.
