Holy Moly! Sony emails leaked...

Yes, we knew that a ton of Sony email was downloaded.

Now the Innerwebs are full of various emails about behind the scenes negotiating and bickering between various execs in and out of Sony Pictures.

For example:

Leaked: The Nightmare Email Drama Behind Sony's Steve Jobs Disaster

The permanently upcoming Steve Jobs biopic has been hotly anticipated since it was first reported nearly three years ago. We're still waiting. And according to newly leaked emails out of Sony Pictures, trying to get it off the ground was a total clusterfuck: name-calling, Angelina Jolie-trashing, lying, and begging.

I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Saw some of that yesterday ... it's a wonder anything creative ever gets produced. The formulaic feel many big movies have is likely a result of that "process."

A family friend had the movie rights to a very famous children's novel (adolescents, not young children,) and trying to get that made was a tortuous, Byzantine, over decade-long ordeal. banghead smiley

Any time you see a 'team' of writers for a movie, beware.
