4th Annual Power 50
20. SCOTT RUDIN
By 29, he was the president of production at 20th Century Fox, and since then he has terrorized underlings at nearly every film company (TriStar, Paramount, Disney, Miramax), producing more than 70 titles including In & Out, No Country for Old Men, The Hours, and Fantastic Mr. Fox. Rudin hasn’t limited himself to film either, having won Tonys for five of the plays he produced, including last year’s best drama, God of Carnage.
