Producer Scott Rudin is “Stepping Back” From His Film and Streaming Work in the Wake of Abuse Claims

Mega-producer Scott Rudin is seemingly about to do something few Hollywood bigwigs have ever had to do: suffer consequences for his actions.

Why Did Scott Rudin Step Back From Broadway? Maybe Not Just Because He’d Seen The Error Of His Ways

The key seems to have been Rudin’s high-profile, high-stakes production of The Music Man, set to start previews in December. While some of the key people involved in the revival reportedly showed “apathy” about the allegations of Rudin’s appalling office behavior, the two stars did not: Hugh Jackman told others he was “very concerned” but did not give an ultimatum, while Sutton Foster said publicly that she would go if he did not. – The Hollywood Reporter

Scott Rudin’s Apology Is Not Enough

Not great: “Broadway producers I spoke to told me that Rudin seems to be sincere about stepping away from the day-to-day running of his megahits, The Book of Mormon and To Kill a Mockingbird, but no one seems to think he’ll be relinquishing his financial stakes. When Broadway resumes, so will his revenue streams.” What can Broadway, and Hollywood, do? – Los Angeles Times

Scott Rudin’s Abusive Behavior Was An Open Secret

Why did the media not come out and treat it as the truly awful (and unacceptable) fact that it was? “Unlike past stories, The Hollywood Reporter’s offers, for the first time in Rudin’s almost 40 years as a producer, an unromanticized affirmation of the seemingly endless anecdotes about him as a manager. It details his alleged misbehavior as well as his influence, which has arguably made the industry and the journalists who report on it more likely to accept workplace aggression as a condition o...

Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence has appeared in 19 movies since her breakout role in 2010’s Winter’s Bone, and Dark Phoenix, her 20th film in 9 years, comes out in under two months.
