According to a new report, Hulu paid somewhere in the low eight-figure range for the U.S. rights to Boss Level, though the precise price tag was not revealed. The movie is said to carry a $45 million budget. Interestingly, the deal is just for the U.S. rights.

It has been an interesting journey so far for the $45-budgeted film, which has been completed since early this year.
