Early Life and Work: the Theatre and Casting Days

Rudin was born and raised in the New York City area. At 15 years old, he started working as an assistant to renowned theatre producer Kermit Bloomgarden. Later, he worked for producers Robert Whitehead and Emanuel Azenberg. In lieu of college, Rudin took a job as a casting agent and ended up starting his own company. His newly minted firm cast numerous Broadway shows, including Pippin (1972), for Stuart Ostrow and Bob Fosse, and Annie (1977), for Mike Nichols. He also cast PBS's Verna USO Girl (1978), starring Sissy Spacek and William Hurt, and the movies King of the Gypsies (1978), The Wanderers (1979), Simon (1980) with Alan Arkin and Resurrection (1980).[2] New York, New York and NYC redirect here. ...

The Move to Los Angeles and His Early Producing Career

In 1980, Rudin moved to Los Angeles, taking up employment at Edgar J. Scherick Associates, where he served as producer on a variety of films including I'm Dancing as Fast as I Can (1981), the NBC mimiseries Little Gloria... Happy at Last (1982) and the Oscar-winning documentary He Makes Me Feel Like Dancin' (1983).

After his stint at Edgar J. Sherick Associates, Rudin formed his own outfit, Scott Rudin Productions. His first film under that banner was Gillian Armstrong's Mrs. Soffel (1984). But, not long after, Rudin placed his production shingle in dormancy and joined 20th Century-Fox as a executive producer. At Fox, he met Jonathan Dolgen, a higher-level executive, with whom he would be working once again at Paramount Pictures years later. Rudin swiftly rose through the ranks at Fox and became president of production by 1986 at the age of 29. [4] His stint at the top of Fox was short lived though, and he soon left and entered into a producing deal with Paramount. Mrs. ...

The Paramount and Tri-Star Deals

On August 1, 1992, at the age of 34, Rudin allowed his contract with Paramount Pictures to expire and signed a deal with Tri-Star Pictures. Under the terms of his Paramount agreement, he was not given a development fund, the account from which top producers typically draw in order to cover movie acquisition and development expenses. His Tri-Star deal, on the other hand, was a three-year, first-look agreement, guaranteeing him a minimum of $1.5 million per year, a $1.5 million producer fee per picture, a discretionary fund of $2 million-plus and a back-end commitment of about 5% of first dollar gross with lucrative built-in escalations. [5]. This arrangement required Rudin to produce three movies per year for the studio.

At the time, Rudin was quoted in the film industry trade paper Variety as saying, "It [the Tri-Star deal] allows me to really feel like I'm a partner with the studio rather than an employee of a studio and to feel I have control with the elements and the way the pictures are mounted... This deal gives me the ability to make what I want to make in the way I want to make them and to move freely in terms of developing and purchasing material."[6] Variety is a daily newspaper for the entertainment industry. ...


His deal with Tri-Star, however, was brief, and he soon moved back to Paramount under even more agreeable terms. Rudin's first look deal with Paramount Pictures lasted nearly fifteen years, ending in 2005. The terms of his contract granted him money to cover the overhead for Scott Rudin Productions and its 15 to 20-odd employees, along with a $3 million discretionary fund and a 7.5% cut of the back-end gross income.

The Departure from Paramount

After the resignation of Paramount's chairwoman, Sherry Lansing in 2004, and nearly simultaneous departure of Jonathan Dolgen (then president of the company), Rudin left the studio and set a five-year first-look pact with Disney that allowed him to make movies under their labels Touchstone Pictures, Walt Disney Pictures, Hollywood Pictures and Miramax Films. Although he had an often contentious relationship with Lansing, particularly at the end of her tenure when Paramount struggled for a single hit movie, her departure -- along with Dolgen's, helped instigate his move. Even though Rudin was not always fond of Lansing's later-term decisions, he still knew her well and had formed an amiable relationship with her -- more than could be said of his connections with the studio's incoming higher-ups. Sherry Lansing (born July 31, 1944 in Chicago, Illinois as Sherry Lee Heimann) is the former CEO of Paramount Studios and the first woman to head a major studio. ...

The Hollywood Pictures sphinx logo Hollywood Pictures is one of The Walt Disney Companys several alternate movie labels. ... Miramax Films is a film production and distribution brand that was a Big Ten film motion picture distribution and production company headquartered in New York City before being bought out by The Walt Disney Company. ...


Another significant reason for Rudin's departure was it allowed him to channel his more arty fare through Disney's Miramax Films subsidiary. Since Harvey and Bob Weinstein had left Miramax, the company they founded in 1979, Rudin felt he would be free at Disney to utilize its resources. Laura M. Holson of The New York Times wrote on April 21, 2005: "Rudin is likely to fill the gap [left by the departure of Harvey and Bob Weinstein] by providing the sort of high-quality, offbeat art films that Disney has struggled to create on its own."

Bob Weinstein, along with brother Harvey Weinstein, was head of Miramax Studios. ... The New York Times is a daily newspaper published in New York City and distributed internationally. ...


When the Weinsteins were running Miramax and it's sister label Dimension Films, however, Harvey Weinstein and Rudin, two of the hottest heads on Hollywood, had public confrontations during the production of The Hours (2002), which Rudin produced for Miramax Films after it became a "mini-major" studio subsidiary under Disney. Dimension Films is a motion picture unit currently a part of The Weinstein Company. ... This article or section does not cite any references or sources. ... Also see: 2002 (number). ... Disney may refer to: The Walt Disney Company and its divisions, including Walt Disney Pictures. ...


Rudin said, in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, "There is one shop in town [Miramax] that is making challenging movies. I think it's incredible that he [Weinstein] has found a way to run a business making these kind of movies." However, "we are both control freaks. We both want to run our own shows. When I'm doing a Miramax movie, I work for him. And I don't like that feeling. I chafe under that. I especially chafe under it when I feel that I'm on a leash."[8]


In fact, public spats between the two drifted into personal territory at times, such as the more memorable incident in which Rudin had his assistants goad Weinstein with innumerable cigarette cartons during one of the Miramax topper's attempts to quit smoking.


Consequently, after the Weinstein's departure, the idea of becoming a top producer for the Miramax label was perhaps enticing. He would have free reign over the mini-major the Weinsteins nurtured for so many years, and the brothers would be unable to intercede.


Rudin's Movie Track Record

Over the years, Rudin has produced a diverse array of films, ranging from widely distributed arthouse fare to mainstream Hollywood features. He has been responsible for films by John Schlesinger (Pacific Heights, 1990, starring Melanie Griffith, Michael Keaton and Matthew Modine); Mike Nichols (Regarding Henry, 1991, starring Harrison Ford and Annette Bening; and first-time directors Jodie Foster (Little Man Tate, 1991, starring Foster, Diane Wiest and Adam Hann-Byrd) and Barry Sonnenfeld (The Addams Family, 1991, starring Raúl Juliá, Angelica Houston, Christopher Lloyd and Christina Ricci).

Rudin had a string of box-office failures in the early nineties, highlighted by "White Sands" (1992, with Willem Dafoe and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio), "Jennifer 8" (1992, with Andy Garcia and Uma Thurman) and "Life with Mikey" (1993). All three movies struggled among that year's competitive summer slate. However, Rudin was soon redeemed by the star-studded legal thriller "The Firm" (1993), which was a monster hit -- his most profitable movie to date with, at least, $270,248,367 worldwide gross -- and "Searching for Bobby Fischer (1993), which garnered critical acclaim. Surprisingly, shortly before "Searching for Bobby Fischer" was released Fischer himself, the renowned young chess prodigy, popped out of hiding in Yugoslavia after 20 years in seclusion. At the time, Rudin was quoted by Army Archerd of Variety as saying, "I'm not concerned [about the reemergence of Fischer]. It can only be good, to help publicize the picture... He [Fischer] is never seen in the movie--he never appears." [10] Jazz Festival box Office, Edmonton A box office is a place where tickets are sold to the public for admission to a venue. ...

Subsequently, Rudin oversaw production of the romantic comedy I.Q. (1994), starring Meg Ryan and Tim Robbins; the Paul Newman film Nobody's Fool (1994); the dark horse hit Clueless (1995), a breakout movie for Alicia Silverstone; and Sydney Pollack's remake, Sabrina (1995). In 1996, he produced The First Wives Club, a hit comedy starring Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton. Keaton was also in Albert Brooks' Mother (1996, with Debbie Reynolds) and along side Meryl Streep and Robert De Niro in Marvin's Room (1996), a film that also featured a young Leonardo DiCaprio playing a mentally disabled boy. Both were produced by Rudin. Later in '96, Rudin teamed with producer Brian Grazer on Ron Howard's Ransom, which starred Mel Gibson, Rene Russo and Gary Sinise. [11] Grazer had to get an exemption from his deal at Universal Pictures to join Rudin on that project, which has been the only movie the two powerhouse producers have worked on together.
