Re: Avi Arad vs. Tom Rothman - Who's Worse
Avi Arad is just like most producers out there. Sure he is more interested than profit than creativity, but that's his job. He's made some bad decisions and many good ones. He's not that bad.
Tom Rothman is just terrible. He has this narrowminded idea of what it takes to make a successful film and he won't stray from it at all, despite it never actually working. There is a difference between having a voice and being completely meddlesome from start to finish. You can see it in the filmmakers. There are many directors who absolutely refuse to work with FOX any more because of Rothman. You don't see that with Arad. That pretty much says it all.
