The long legal battle to decide who holds the ultimate responsibility for Sahara's monumental suckage is apparently nearing its end, reports Variety.
The film, based on Clive Cussler's bestselling novel, is considered one of the biggest financial debacles in Hollywood history. Sahara's losses to date amount to over $78 million, according to standard shady Hollywood accounting methods.
Producers had reportedly envisioned Sahara as part of an "Indiana Jones-style action franchise," a perfectly reasonable expectation for a movie starring box office behemoths Matthew McConaughey, Penelope Cruz and Steve Zahn.
