The deal with Hollywood uber-agent Ari Emanuel’s WME allegedly will make people see the Duchess as a force to be reckoned with on her own right away from Prince Harry’s royal limelight.
AceShowbiz –Meghan Markle wants to be the “Queen of Hollywood” after signing her deal with Hollywood uber-agent Ari Emanuel’s WME. A new report claimed that the multi-million deal will make the Duchess of Sussex a prominent figure in the entertainment industry.
“This deal is about making Meghan a power player in Hollywood,” a source told Page Six. “Even though she is, of course, an actress, this isn’t about movies or shows for Meghan to star in, it is about creating projects for her to produce – she wants to run the show.”
Meghan will allegedly make millions from the deal, which was announced last week. The insider added that it will make people see her as a force to be reckoned with on her own right away from husband Prince Harry’s royal limelight.
After the pair stepped down as senior members of British royal family, Harry and Meghan were forced to find a way to make money as they need to pay the running costs for their $14.5 million estate in Montecito, California. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also have to cover for their private security costs which are about $2 million a year.
“They need to find a way to make money – this is business,” a source who is familiar with the pair said. Another source added, “Through the fact that Archewell (her company with Prince Harry) is now repped by WME it bolsters Harry and Meghan’s bid to become power players in the production arena.”
The informant continued. “As Meghan has herself said, she’s moved on, she’s living in the present and she’s going to explore her life with the freedoms that her new life affords her.” As the deal will be “more solely focused” on Meghan’s business ventures, the source noted that the mom of two “has a lot of business ideas, she considers herself an entrepreneur, and now there’s a machine behind her to support those ideas.”
“She founded (former blog) The Tig, and she’s a co-founder of Archewell, so she’s clearly able to do that,” the source pointed out.
In addition to the WME deal, the Sussexes still have their ongoing five-year deal with Netflix which is believed to be worth around $100 million. They also signed a rumored $15 million deal with Spotify as the “Suits” alum is slated to return for a second season of her “Archetypes” podcast.
