Yes, film processing is far more expensive then digital, but the startup costs are much lower for film then digital (especially for MF). So the break even if anyone really cares to work it out is probably measured in years - unless your shooting 5 rolls a day.
As for shutter count, of course digital shutter have to be stronger then film, by it's nature you shoot a hell of a lot more with digital - for every film frame, you probably shoot 5-10 digital, simply because it doesn't cost anymore (as long as you have a big enough memory card).
The big companies are switching from analogue to digital production for two reasons - one consumer demand is moving in that direction (although not as fast as the companies would have us believe) and secondly it's infinitely more profitable for them to sell digital then film. Digital has a finite life (max 3 year cycle), whereas many people kept and used film cameras for 5-10+ years (I still have a 16 year old fully functioning film SLR)
