I will testify to this as being a *FACT!*
I personally witnessed the immediate aftermath of cancellation. Joss fought for the ressurection of FF/Serenity out of love and dedication to the storytelling.
He has often said so himself, and his actions back it up. I haven’t a clue what he got paid... but I’ll confidently assert that the vast/overwhelming majority of the budget appears on screen.
The money was a distant third, fourth or fifth to the stories Joss passionately wants to tell. None of us made a financial "killing" on this one. Naturally, we hope that may become an ancillary benefit to the entire enterprise, but this was a labor of love for us all. And if, Joss forbid, there are no more sequels; we will now be able to move forward with the knowledge that we were able to redeem our sadness at the loss of our beloved little television show with what is, I think, one of the best d@mn movies ever made!
Trust me on that one. :- )
