Billionaire businessmen Charles G. Koch and David H. Koch seem to be the last people to have any interest in what goes on in Hollywood, but the heads of Koch Industries and prominent backers of right-wing politicians have secretly been funding some of the biggest movies out this summer.
Mnuchin, the report says, "brought the brothers in as investors as part of a $450 million deal struck in 2013".
The Trump administration's treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, originally worked for RatPac-Dune Entertainment, a business that operates as a financier for a variety of films.
'Don't shoot' Chilling warning after footage of Bigfoot sighting goes viral
Friday night in McDowell County, N.C., around 100 miles northwest of Charlotte, the Charlotte Observer reports . SC police have appealed for residents not to shoot Bigfoot , following reports of a sighting in the state.
RatPac-Dune's silent investors reportedly also include Bill Gates, who's in for about as much money as the Koch brothers, though the Microsoft founder's remote involvement in a movie like Wonder Woman is presumably a lot easier to swallow for the denizens of the Hollywood liberal cesspool.
Wonder Woman alone has made $400 million in domestic box office sales, and almost $800 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo.
"Though they might be the most reviled figures among Hollywood's liberal crowd, the Koch brothers have been a silent investor in Warner Bros.' slate of movies for four years", the Hollywood Reporter reported Wednesday. Gates is largely known for investing in stable enterprises like UPS, Walmart, and Coca-Cola over film financing, making his choice a particularly interesting one for the company. Because RatPac-Dune is a private company, this was never disclosed publicly. "They're not in it for the recognition", a source told THR.
