Hollywood is a business. It doesn't always feel that way because we know many of the specific players and the industry's sole purpose is ultimately to try and please the general public. Deep down, however, making movies is still a multi-billion dollar enterprise. Budgets often require nine digits. Thousands of people are typically employed in making just one of them come to fruition, and the general outlines have to be worked out months and months in advance in order to pull everything off. Studios are run like Fortune 500 movie companies, probably because many of them are, and at no point is that clearer than after a movie star dies.
