SONY leaks

Postby swamer on Mon Dec 15, 2014 2:22 pm

Now that more and more emails have leaked, I was wondering if Julia had a Sony movie or if her upcoming projects are Sony's. After, Clooney and Pitt emails are now public, I hope that Julia's name will not be involved in this mess.

I also feel bad for Jolie.

the e-mails of clooney about the monuments men made me feel so bad for him...

EPL was produced by sony and i think at the end of the day they were happy about it (it underperformed in usa but it did very well internationally).
as for the upcoming projects, TSITE is being developed by a small studio and money monster is a tristar movie.


amy pascal is winning the 2014 hot mess award, her e-mails are priceless!

Yeah, I don't think (at least I hope not) that Julia will be involved in this too much. The last time she worked with Sony was on Eat Pray Love in 2010 which Pascal apparently loved (because she then struck that deal with Murphy) and before that it was Closer in 2004. The emails seem to only go back about a year or two so far.

As posted on AW, Julia is mentioned in some emails exchange about a Sacha Baron Cohen project. It is supposed to be a comedy but I don't see why SBC wanted her so badly in his movie (he certainly liked her number with the wheelchair when she presented Clooney, LOL). I want Julia to be in a comedy again but not this kind.

I wonder if other projects will be revealed.

Hi, I just talked to Kevin. I really tried to sell it. He said he’ll give it a college try, but he doesn’t think it’s going to happen. She (they) are in $3m Valentine Day land. I guess now is the time to work the phones.

Ok he backed off. I am now going back to Huvane at 750k plus 2.5 of the pool, BUT, FYI, SBC is adamant that we not go higher even if Sony covers the breakage

I agree with you. So does Louise. She is trying to get Sacha to back off.

Just talked to Louise. It would be one day between July 6-9 but she thinks it’s a nonstarter and pointless and is calling Sacha to explain it. he might not take the call because it’s Shabbat.

I am dealing with Sacha before Julia. He is ok that we are spending extra to get her, but it’s not like he is super happy. In fact, he and LL seem to be ambivalent about her. At first he balked about how much the extra cash will push back the pool, but then he realized it’s very little. Then he wanted to take back the points, but finally agreed to our suggestion of 750k plus 2.5 points. However, he now wants her in London as well as SA. I am discussing with Louise to see what that means – i.e., dates, etc. I told Matt that I don’t think that deal will ever get made, but Sacha insists that it be part of this counter. Do you want to call SBC or something?

Hi,

I now have confirmation from Nira, Eric, LL and Sacha that they will share their prorated portion of 50% of a $600k overage for Julia.

The plan is now to offer Julia $750k plus 2.5 points in the pool.

Here is the math: We will approve a $67m budget which will include Rebel’s closed deal and Julia’s role at $100k plus the original perks, which means that offering Julia $750k plus 2.5 points in the pool puts us over by $650k plus the difference between the perks. If Sacha, LL, NP and EF bear $300k, then we bear $350k plus the difference in the perks. You said that we are ok to bear up to $450k, so we should have a little room.

Brian

interesting that she would be interested in a Sasha Cohen film (for such little money - it was presumably a small role again?)

A million dollars + 2% of the back end (which is what they ultimately offered her) is not little money at all when you consider that she would only be working for 6 days.

Her name was also in a list about a possible Little House female cast, and there was this strange observation:

I wonder why they called it a dangerous idea and what are these physical demands. I mean from the original series, I don't remember the cast having to make extraordinary physical efforts.

yesh, that's a weird comment... but not totally uncomprehensible: julia is actually one of the less "physica" actressses in hollywood. she did some action movies but both bullock and ryan had a much more physical quality. i could never see julia doing the roles charlize, angelina or sandra herself occasionally do/did.

Yes one of the less physical actresses just like Kidman, Moore or Blanchett, but I see that she's not into action roles. What I don't get is how Little House can be physically challenging. My theory is that she, herself told studios excs that action is dangerous for her, lol.

blanchett did the indiana jones movie and she went pretty physical for the movie hannah.
yes, kidman is probably another actress i could never see play an action role (she did it for the peacemaker, but that's it)

They probably added some action elements and also they would probably need to film in a prairie. LOL
