RUDIN NOTE RECIPIENT PASSES ON PREEM.
The last time Paramount's special projects veep Allison Jackson worked on a Scott Rudin film premiere, a disagreement over seating generated one of Hollywood's more notorious letters: Rudin's note to Jackson began, "Be aware that the only thing separating my hands from your neck is the fact there are 3,000 miles between us."
With that sort of personal history, what happens when it's time to arrange Rudin's next Par premiere? Sages at Paramount wisely brought in a different coordinator to handle the project.
Veteran event specialist Carlotta Florio is handling the June 23 preem of "South Park" while Jackson says she is "going to Hawaii. I'm on vacation."
