Sony has some trouble brewing in their security department. Turns out that some emails have been leaked to the public in the recent days. Sadly, the more serious effect of this hack involves producer Scott Rudin and actress Angelina Jolie.
The issue between the two stems from a series of heated emails exchanged between Rudin and Sony Pictures Entertainment’s co-chairman, Amy Pascal. Based on the leaked emails, the two apparently talked about and criticized Angelina Jolie and another actor, Adam Driver.
The exchange between the two executives likely refers to the fact that Jolie wanted the director of the upcoming “Cleopatra” movie to be David Fincher, “Gone Girl” director. Sadly, the executives do not know how to go about with making this happen for the 39-year-old actress.
To quote Rudin’s email to Pascal:
“There is no movie of Cleopatra to be made (and how that is a bad thing given the insanity and rampaging go of this woman and the cost of the movie is beyond me),”
On another email, it seemed like Rudin was referring to Mrs. Jolie-Pitt by saying that he was not planning to destroy his Hollywood career “over a minimally talented spoiled brat.” To add salt to the injury, the producer called the actress as “a camp event and a celebrity and that’s all.”
Apart from slamming Jolie, the emails also talks about Fincher making an appearance. The particular conversation starts with the subject: “Girls” Star Adam Driver to Play “Star Wars” villain. As depicted on the leaked emails, the reply of the co-chairman was “WTF.” Fincher, on the other hand, replied that “Adam Driver is a terrible idea, I’m with you”
As of this writing, the source of the hack is being investigated by the FBI. There has not been any leads yet as to who broke into their email system. When asked to comment, Rudin, Fincher and Pascal have not given their side of the story.
