The highest paid director in the world for making movies would be, James Cameron. This is because he also writes his movies as well as directing them, this year alone he earned over $200 million. There are other directors such as Lucas and Spielberg which still earn money from movies that they have made in the past, Lucas earns about $170 million just from the Star Wars franchise. Hope this helped.
