Schroeder departing Rudin after 15 pics

Exec pursuing variety of other posts

After eight years with Paramount Pictures-based Scott Rudin Prods., company prexy Adam Schroeder is ankling the company.

For the last six years, Schroeder had served as a theoretically L.A.-based exec, but as prexy had spent significant amounts of time in London and New York.

“We made 15 pictures together, and it was a good time,” said Schroeder, who did not renew his contract, “but it was time for something else.”

Most recently, Schroeder had been laboring on Par’s remake of “Shaft,” starring Samuel L. Jackson, which is due out this June.

While at Scott Rudin Prods., Schroeder produced pics including “The Truman Show” and “A Simple Plan,” exec produced “In & Out,” “The First Wives Club” and “South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.” He co-produced “Ransom” and “Clueless.”

Rudin, through a Paramount publicist, declined to comment on his departure.

Schroeder, however, did say that he was pursuing a variety of exec positions — all in the motion picture business — but declined to say if he would land at a studio exec suite or in a production deal.
