LATEST: WILL SMITH's troubled movie based on legendary boxer MUHAMMAD ALI is back, after resolving talk this weekend (21OCT00).
After more than a week of doubt about the movie over budget worries, SONY is said to have accepted new proposals satisfying executives that it can be made within its estimated $105 million (£70 million) budget.
Now, ALI is set to begin filming in January (01). It's understood Will and director MICHAEL MANN have taken reduced fees to get the movie done within its budget. (RGS/WNWPO)
