Whoever it is that hacked Sony Pictures is not playing. The latest salvo from the mystery hackers includes a couple of memos/emails about two big name celebs that’s going to cause a lot of awkwardness, to say the least.
In one email, Kevin Hart was referred to as a whore.
Senior studio exec Clint Culpepper was miffed that Hart would not do social media for free when promoting his latest movie. (via TMZ):
Culpepper sent several emails to studio heads, complaining that Hart made $3 million and then $4 million for his last 2 Sony flicks, yet when he was asked to tweet out a plug for Think Like a Man Too, his agent balked because he felt Kevin’s expertise in social media was worth additional money.
Culpepper suggests they put the screws to Kevin, writing, “I’m tempted to suggest we call his bluff. If he doesn’t do his normal routine, his film will not open as well and his brand will appear diminished and he will — in fact — be f***ing himself because we have his next 2 immediate films. I’m not saying he’s a whore. But he’s a whore.”
The leakers/hackers, who are thought to be in North Korea – or working on behalf of the North Korean government – are stepping up their war with Sony Pictures to stop the release of The Interview, the Seth Rogen/James Franco action-comedy that deals with a covert attempt to kill North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un. So far, the film is still set to premiere tomorrow night.
In another, producer Scott Rudin allegedly called Angelina Jolie a “minimally talented spoiled brat.” It’s all over that Steve Jobs movie that notoriously couldn’t get off the ground at Sony.
