We reckon Sony officials will rethink before they write any emails after this incident! Following a computer hack that occurred at the company last week, emails from top heads at Sony have been leaked – and they’re not pretty!
The emails between Sony Pictures co-chairperson, Amy Pascal and producer Scott Rudin, printed on Gawker, show the hassle that occurred between the planned Steve Jobs and Cleopatra movies.
David Fincher, director of this year’s Gone Girl, pulled out of the planned Cleopatra production back in 2013, much to the annoyance of Angelina Jolie, who was supposed to be the lead role.
According to the emails, Angelina was not happy about David heading over to work on the Steve Jobs biopic, and the messages between Amy and Scott show just how tense things had got.
Amy wrote to the producer: “She [Angelina assumedly] is upset about us giving David Jobs. She wants to talk” to which Scott fires back: “She’ll survive it. I don’t want to waste my time on this … I’ve told you exactly how I want do this material. It’s the ONLY way I want to do this material. I’m not remotely interested in presiding over a $180m ego bath we both know will be the career-defining debacle for us both. I’m not destroying my career over a minimally talented spoiled brat who thought nothing of shoving this off her plate for eighteen months so she could go direct a movie. I have no desire to be making a movie with her, or anybody, that she runs and we don’t.”
Yikes – something tells us Angelina’s days with Sony Pictures may have come to an end after those harsh words!
The emails also claim that Adam Driver was a "terrible idea" for the new Star Wars movie and also branded Michael Fassbender a fantastic actor but "not yet a star".
