Sony Leaks General - Quentin Tarantino's emails edition.
So digging I found Quentin's email address- email@example.com
Now we can see his correspondence with Amy and others.
Next I wanna see if I can find Martin Scorsese's email and read those... and Paul Thomas Anderson too.
Help us try to find funny emails.
>Revelations from yesterday's threads:
- Charlie Sheen is HIV positive
- David O Russel and Christian Bale got into a fist fight on the set of American Hustle because David made Amy Adams cry
-Everyone hates David Fincher
-Amy wants to get a boob job in 2016
-Tom Hardy was gonna play a Big Guy in Drew Goddard's Sinister Six - a godzilla sized Sandman
-Thery're gonna make a Bioshock movie set in contemporary times with Ken Levine writing
-Script notes to the Uncharted movie
-Amy Pascal did nothing wrong
>Bioshock movie set in contemporary times
FUCK what a way to ruin it completely. The charm of the old timey music and setting is what makes it so enjoyable.
>Charlie Sheen is HIV positive
tippity top of the lel to ya
>I think I will win the 90/10 bet on the over under on this ...it's hard to to be a drug addict and be HIV positive and do 40 eps a year.
>Original game is period but we talked the creator into contemporary main character and opening and the secret world can be stuck in that 1960s period ala the island on Lost because that's whe it was built and got fucked up, so our guy is a stranger in a strange land
Here's a study on Karate Kid 2:
We feel the findings are pretty clear. While it is covered in detail within the report, the main takeaways are as follows:
· The Karate Kid is a brand that adults have more affinity towards than kids, though kids liked the 2010 movie more than adults.
· Relative to other family brands (Wimpy Kid, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Percy Jackson, Night at the Museum) The Karate Kid is middle of the pack among adults, and trails these other brands with kids.
· Karate Kid’s strengths relative to these other brands are its inspirational tone, good message, and the nostalgia adults feel for it.
· After being exposed to a short concept for the sequel, interest levels do not rise significantly, and are heavily concentrated among families, and African-American moviegoers.
· Jaden is very polarizing, particularly with general audience and parents, less so with kids.
>How Can Audiences Be Real If Sequels Aren't Real
· There is a worry, particularly among girls but with parents as well, that the plot will focus too much on Dre, and too much on the martial arts fighting.
· Mr. Han is the most important character to parents, kids, and general audience. Mr. Han’s relationship with Dre is the most important element of the brand, and seeing Dre help Mr. Han the most compelling hook in the sequel.
· Seeing several different martial arts styles is more appealing than just focusing on one.
· Rating has no impact on the majority of moviegoers. Parents prefer PG while the general audience prefers PG-13, though the general audience has the biggest overcomes with Jaden. Regardless of rating, a tonal balance is key.
· The majority of moviegoers have no preference on setting, but when forced to choose, Tokyo is the most interesting.
- Charlie Sheen is HIV positive
-Amy wants to get a boob job in 2016
I can't fathom that there are talented people still willing to work with Sony. They are creatively bankrupt shills with no concept of what audiences want. And is there some fucking rule that you must have the writing ability of a preteen to do business with them? Reading their emails gives me a goddamn headache.
The most amazing thing to me was that the President of Sony Pictures, one of the most powerful people in entertainment, reads Youtube comments and Twitter responders when deciding whether or not to make a $300 million Popeye movie.
Nigger you don't post something like that without sauce
He must have gone to brazil and be fucked by some trannys.
>Thanks Amy. I'd like to keep in touch. My personal email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you ever need to reach me.
Fuck, I hope these /v/ Nintentoddlers won't harass my based nigga Jackie T
Right now I'm searching through chronological emails about The Amazing Spider-Man 2... I wanna see their how their reactions change from being excited, to how they reacted when the critics started trashing it and it was bombing, to finger pointing, to the movement they decided to recast and give it to Marvel.
I hope Orci and Kurtzman get trashed.
>Eeverybody hates the Finch.
HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE THIS FACE?!
>HURR DURR DISTRICT 9 GAEM WITH TV SHOW JACK COULD YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN
>Actually I already quit
lel, based fucking Tretton
are there any good ones with Kaz?
>I can't fathom that there are talented people still willing to work with Sony. They are creatively bankrupt shills with no concept of what audiences want.
You think the other 6 big studios are any different?
She is an actress. She had shit mental health as soon as she thought the drama business was a worthwhile endeavor.
Here's a weird one. I love this mundane stuff:
Who knows, you mean of pop music? Here's a guess. Maybe needs more early rock like chuck b. or some phil spektor he's a rebel, wall of sound stuff. Also Mussel shoals is missing from here.
Aretha F. I never loved A Man??
Sam Cooke Live at the Harlem Square Club (I love this record)
Highway 61 Revisited, Dylan.
Led Zepplin 4
Pink FLoyd. The Wall.
Run DMC (just cause it marks when hip hop crossed over)
Rolling Stones Beggar's Banquet or maybe sticky fingers.
Sex Pistols Never Mind the Bullocks
Maybe Appetite for Destruction belongs on there but NWA had a really big impact on culture.

There's so many questions here. Why is Amy Pascal asking Marc Webb about music? Because he wrote and directed 500 Days Of Summer?
Anyone read Fiege's ASM2 notes?
This is some embarrassing shit - GET BETTER PERFORMANCES FROM YOUR ACTORS, SETUP STOP BEFOREHAND, etc.It's amazing how retarded these people are that they wasted 400 million on that embarassment.
Yeah, by "everybody" OP means brainless execs who write like 13-year old dumb girls. Fincher is based, he knows that his movies are successful, so he doesn't want to play shitty games with them.
>the gods of the entertainment do powerrankings
My fucking dick
>Are you guys doing anything else with him? I know he's brilliant but we have someone on our show who worked closely with him on "American Hustle" and not only are the stories about him reforming himself total bullshit but the new stories of his abuse and lunatic behavior are extreme even by Hollywood standards. Apparently he behaved on "the Fighter" but acted so crazy on "Hustle" that it's another Clooney situation where a lot of people won't work with him again. He grabbed one guy by the collar, cursed out people repeatedly in front of others and so abused Amy Adams that Christian Bale got in his face and told him to stop acting like an asshole. He treated the crew like shit, demanded his own bathroom at all times and frightened people, as he famously had on "Three Kings".
>I figured because it was mostly a Megan Ellison film that you might not have gotten good intell on that set.
Why do Sorkin, Rudin and Amy hate Fincher bros?
What did he do wrong?
>Tone down Paul Giamatti performance, so he seems a bit more menacing and less cartoonish.
>Andrew’s performance is all over the place…a lot of crying and then a lot of mania. Hard to track him emotionally sometimes. It undermines his reaction to Gwen’s death b/c he gets upset and emotional a lot.
>they probably read it on some gossip like everybody else
Except it clearly says
>we have someone on our show who worked closely with him on "American Hustle"
Why would someone who read it on a gossip site lie about the source when emailing his boss about it.
He he read it on a gossip site why would he be concerned enough to email his boss?
they've probably talked at least
ange did and val did and blair did.
he's worried that his fan base feels he's a sell out and is battling his compulsion to speak out and defend his reputation.
But I think he's settled down now.
I don't know when he emailed you, but it seems like it was early this morning NYC time and now it's night.
I don't think we're in crisis mode for the moment.

Yeah, i just wanted to write something similar. I think this movie will go down as one of the biggest disasters in Hollywood history and will be made as an example for marketing departments/execs of what not to do. They had such a simple and successful concept on their hands and fucked it up so bad with their " researched input"

He's a total control freak. That's why everyone hated Kubrick too.

So fucking what? He knows what to do, his movies are big hits and get a bunch of nominations, why would he want to listen to suggestions from idiots like Amy?

Looks like Seth Rogen and Amy were righting about the shot of Kim Jong Il being blown up:
Just heard shot was rejected. We really need to talk for many reasons. Please get back to me.
Here is the new and improved and muuuuuuuch less gross version Kim dying (this is the NEW one below). We included the original shot that was finalled for the movie to give you a frame of reference as to how far the shot has come. (that is the OLD one below)
We are cool with this new one being the shot that is in the movie. We hope everyone over there feels the same.
Just wanted to say...
I'm not mad at you at all. I was just thrown I think. I appreciate you being so honest with us and how cool you've been throughout this whole process.
I understand that this is more of an emotional situation than an intellectual one and we will really look at the shot and consider how to make everyone feel good about this.
Effective immediately, my new email is email@example.com. Please update your contacts and email me there going forward. Thanks!
To pascal, amy, belgrad, doug
i appreciate the email amy, however, after really examining the impact of this news story, discussing it at length with Blair, Val, my publicity team and our company, we actually disagree strongly with one element of your email, and that's why i was trying to talk today.
we feel the story of censorship and trying to appease North Korea WILL in fact hurt the film critically, and thus financially.
critics are very sensitive to censorship, studio interference, and creative vision. and that's the problem. no matter what i say, the fact of the matter is that someone in your studio leaked information that now makes it seem like a compromised product.
the head melting shot described vividly in all these articles is universally received as awesome by the articles writing about them, and when these critics see a shot that is decidedly LESS awesome, regardless of what story we put out there, the truth will be apparent: it's a compromised product. that will make people gun for the movie. again, critics love nothing more than to wage a war on censorship, not to mention the obvious contradictory attitude of changing to a movie to appease a government that movie is mocking for two hours. that just makes the movie seem dumb, which again, leads to bad reviews, less money, etc.
as you said, it is common for studios to haggle over content. but that is not what this is. this is now a story of Americans changing their movie to make North Koreans happy. That is a very damning story, and a very different one.
I sometimes do this. its faster to type out your notes than writing them on paper. especially if you can't find anything to write on.
Though she could have just saved it as a draft on her phone.
Because Dragon Tattoo bombed, he wouldn't lower his expensive fee, and he wanted Marketing Control even though he had a .5000 batting average on that for Sony?
Like Scott Rudin said about Fincher, "Everyone wants a raise after a bomb."
whether you want to accept this or not, this has become a real issue that we fully believe will impact the finances of the film. people will know the truth, because it will be obvious from the finished product of the movie, and they will hate that they are seeing something that was censored for North Korea's appeasement.
if the movie doesn't get great reviews or doesn't do amazing, I now firmly believe is it because the news about this shot being leaked from sony and obviously, because the shot itself is being ruined.
If you guys are able to convince the powers that be that the shot should left in such a matter that people will not be able to say that it was toned down by North Korean pressure, then all this will go away. To us, that is the only solution that is currently on the table.
The movie will be better, and won't be fighting a stigma of censorship.

Read the book DisneyWar.
Sony seems incompetent but harmless- they're probably the smallest of the big studios. Disney is just vicious and powerful.
I know some people who used to work for Pixar and Dreamworks and other animation companies, apparently Pixar is a nightmare to work for.
all that teen gossip
Ben Affleck has a slaveowner in his family tree. He was able to keep that a secret—until now.
An email conversation uncovered in the Wikileaks dump of the Sony Hack earlier this week shows that Affleck asked the producers of PBS’ Finding Your Roots series to scrub that ugly detail of his family history. The series, hosted by African-American studies professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., traces the family history of famous Americans who appear on the show
Little House On The Prairie. Apparently it's her and Amy Adam's passion project.. They called it a "John Ford movie for girls" and said they wanted to make it like the books, not the tv show.
I have and it's great. Iger gives the impression that he's more level headed and not as off the cuff as Eisner. Like Iger would abandon an idea he liked if it wouldn't make a profit whereas Eisner would continue with it until he basically had to be told to stop.
"The New Picasso" film adaptation

I like these ideas.
That Crowe movie is a huge fucking a disaster, pretty well-known from earlier leaks. Apparently test audiences HATED it because main character is a douchebag that openly hits on married woman and re-shoots didn't help, they just stopped giving Crowe money for re-shoots eventually and release it anyway
comments to track new things. Previous things like comic book movies are already making money. Popeye hasn't been in the spotlight for decades, they need to know how people will react to it.

>Were about to see a bubble pop in Si-fi with the first over saturation of Star Wars. Too many films in too few years. Part of the appeal of Star Wars was that there were so few films, so they were a big event. The nerds could get expanded universe stuff if they wanted to, but that was for the hardcore nerds. The general public went for just the big films. Now there's gonna be a film a year for decades. Every character will get a spin off. The new generation of younglings will see Star Wars as Disney tier childrens shit.

We will make it less gory.
There are currently four burn marks on his face. We will take out three of them, leaving only one.
We reduce the flaming hair by 50%.
The head explosion can't be more obscured than it is because we honestly feel that if it's any more obscured you won't be able to tell its exploding and the joke won't work.
Do you think this will help? Is it enough?
If you think this is worth doing, we will dive into it right now and could probably have it done in 24 hrs.
Please let me know what you think ASAP so we can get started.
> As I suspected, I got a call from Jeremy Zimmer today informing me that they feel that if we're going to expect and take advantage of Kevin's social media savvy that "they" feel there is a price to be paid for it which is above and beyond the 3M he was paid to do the film. Jeremy was very clear that Kevin would do the normal publicity asked of him like junket, tv shows, radio interviews, etc. however, the social media blitzkrieg would cost us. I told him I was in a big meeting but would call him back. I'm tempted to suggest we call his bluff. If his film does NOT perform it hurts his brand and we have his next 3 films. I'm not saying he's a whore, but he's a whore. Let's discuss in Tuesday's MPG mtg?

Straight up hitting on her seems like a terrible idea though, you can just kiss her ass. What if you hit on her and she hates it? Or what is she loves it and you have to fuck her and then she gets bored of you? Seems like a lose-lose situation, being "friends" is more beneficial
It says in the game that the city was built around the late 30s and into the 40s, the game takes place in the 60s, after the city has fallen
Of course, most people don't pay attention to this and assume any kind of "retroey" looking stuff is 60s
No it didn't. It almost entirely died out after the Great Depression and even more so after World War 2. Have you ever heard of the terms "pre-war architecture" and "post-war architecture"? They refer to the death of elaborate expensive architectural styles like Art Deco as architecture shifted to simplicity and efficiency at the expense of aesthetic style.
