Who's getting paid $50m for ONE film?

...Not counting our beloved bevvy of merchant bankers and their bonuses for wreaking economic devestation. Nope, this is a humble actor, getting the highest fee EVER for a single film. Discounting Working Title, would the entire combined budget of a year's British cinema amount to this much?
Can you work out who it is? Its a useful fact to cite to demonstrate the challenge facing Indie cinema, but also all non-Hollywood cinema, including the UK's.
