7 Most Shocking Revelations From The Sony Hack
The Sony hack seems to be the gift that keeps on giving. For the past few weeks, the media has been inundated with stolen information. Some of it has been incredibly salacious while other parts have been rather boring. People like Hollywood screenwriter Aaron Sorkin have been railing against the media for publishing this stolen information while many other celebrities seem resigned to their fate. There have been no resignations over at Sony despite the mountain of bad press they have received for the inappropriate emails that were leaked. We have rounded up 7 of the most shocking revelations from the Sony hack – enjoy!
7. James Franco & Seth Roger Pay Differences for The Interview
Sony hackers revealed how much James Franco and Seth Rogen were compensated for their work in the controversial comedy, “The Interview.” Rogen was reportedly paid $8.4 million while Franco was only paid $6.5 million. With the way things are going right now, it actually looks like the film might not be released. The hackers recently issue a warning, threatening a 9/11 type attack if “The Interview” is released.
For a couple of months now, the film has been creating controversy. Franco and Rogen play a pair of TV journalists who are hired by the CIA to assassinate North Korea’s current leader, Kim Jong Un. North Korea is obviously upset about this and so are the hackers who have been breaking into Sony’s system and stealing information. Since the threat was issued, Franco and Rogen have canceled several of their press appearances and Sony is reportedly considering canceling the entire release.
6. Angelina Jolie Called a “Minimally Talented Spoiled Brat”
Angelina Jolie may be lauded throughout Hollywood; however, one producer, Scott Rudin, is not a fan. After Sony was hacked, emails where he is bashing her to Amy Pascal, the co-chair over at Sony, were leaked. He is reportedly upset with her because she wants to use director David Fincher for the film adaptation of Cleopatra, which doesn’t yet have a script, and he wants to use Fincher for the Steve Jobs biopic that he is producing.
“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 that we don’t. She’s a camp event and a celebrity and that’s all and the last thing anybody needs is to make a giant bomb with her that any fool could see coming,” he wrote.
