Either stick with a much smaller screen 130" or less and add a lot of gain or go with a projector with the ability to do it properly accept the areas a little weaker . The closest projector that can do it all is the new Christi , apparently it's a tad over the budget for most .

I have my LK970/anamorphic lens combo available here in Dealer’s section of the Classifieds, so I can’t move onto the LK990 for testing until that’s sold.

I am now using a Panasonic UB820 to convert HDR to SDR, combining with some tweaks of custom color temp on the projector (which gives me ~27 FL, 92 nits) to play my UHD HDR movies, which gives me an acceptable image quality.
Before using the UB820, I mainly used an Oppo 203 to output HDR contents. I was using my own custom gamma curve (similar to the german curves, but more aggressive) combining the tweaks on the projector to get an OK image quality. I also tried some high gain and ALR screens, but didn't like them due to the hot spot issue.
With my current setup, UB820 does the tone mapping and outputs everything in SDR format, with the peak brightness being 92 nits. So I am definitely looking for more brightness, much more! I was considering VW5000, but its price makes me hesitant. RS4500 is much cheaper (still expensive though), but its brightness is still far from being adequate. I do like high contrast, I love my OLED TVs, but high contrast with low brightness (~100 nits) is like a car with good handling but only 100 horse power.
It looks like the benq could be a reasonable alternative, the only problem is I don't know from where I can get quotes. It would be great if you can help me find a dealer.
