Earlier today Deadline‘s Michael Fleming posted an interview with producer Scott Rudin (Moneyball, The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and to judge from the attention paid so far, Rudin’s remark about The King’s Speech being “a less complex film” than The Social Network is the money quote.
But why? What is so startling about anyone, even a homeless guy standing around on Ninth Avenue, observing this? Who in the world thinks that The King’s Speech is more complex than The Social Network? Ridiculous.
More Rudin: “The Social Network was probably one of the two or three things I’ve done in my life that I’m most proud of. I’m not going to engage in what about it was disappointing. There’s nothing about it I was disappointed in.”
