In November 2001, Scott Rudin was sued by composer Stephen Sondheim and book writer John Weidman over the rights to a musical in development called "Gold!" (formerly "Wise Guys"). Ruding countersued claiming fraud and breach of contract. The matter was resolved in February 2002 and allowed the production to continue without Rudin's participation.
"Whenever Scott was insisting on something, I'd take the pillows off the couch and go under the desk and build a fort with them. The way to deal with Scott is to out juvenile him. He's a two-year-old in an old Jewish man's body." --Director Barry Sonnenfeld on how to work with Rudin, from New York Newsday, November 30, 1993.
"I'm incredibly loyal, but being nice is not my natural instinct." --Rudin quoted in New York Newsday, November 11, 1993.
