Sony’s hacking nightmare just got even more disastrous

Sony Pictures Hack Email Leak

Surprise! It turns out Hollywood really is filled with back-stabbing, self-serving egomaniacs! Gawker has a magnificent rundown of some leaked emails that were sent back and forth between Sony Pictures executives and they paint a picture of the film industry that’s just as toxic as we’ve always imagined.

FROM EARLIER: Sony hack reveals Seth Rogen’s hilarious idea for appeasing North Korea

The absolute best stuff in Gawker’s report came when Angelina Jolie apparently got furious that acclaimed David Fincher had signed on to do the upcoming Jobs biopic instead of her own pet project Cleopatra, a historical drama about the famed Egyptian ruler. Jobs producer Scott Rudin repeatedly told Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal to stop Jolie from trying to interfere and ripped into her both personally and professionally.

“There is no movie of Cleopatra to be made (and how is that a bad thing given the insanity and raging spoiled ego of [Jolie] and the cost of this movie is beyond me),” Rudin fumed. “And if you don’t tell her that you don’t like the script — which, let me remind you, SHE DOESN’T EITHER — this will just spin even further out in Crazyland.”

In subsequent emails, Rudin called Jolie “a minimally talented spoiled brat” and said that Cleopatra was “a $180m ego bath that we both know will be the career-defining debacle for us both.”

Given the sheer scope of the Sony data hack, we imagine that this is far from the last piece of awesomely dirty laundry that’s going to get aired out. Furthermore, we also predict that it will be a long, long time before any studio makes a movie that besmirches North Korea’s good name again.
