Scott Rudin, producer extraordinaire, must be a bit bored or he really likes Benjamin Kunkel’s latest novel because he just coughed up seven figures to purchase Indecision.
Random House’s leading fall fiction tells the story of a chronically indecisive and underachieving 28-year-old who, after ingesting an experimental drug, heads off to Ecuador to track down a high school flame.
According to Variety, Rudin has a habit of jumping on books before numerous amounts of praise roll in and they also go one to say that his pictures tend to draw in top talent. Check out the list of movies Variety lists at work for Rudin Co.
