Seth Rogen Wishes North Koreans Could See ‘The Interview’

16 December 2014 6:16 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

In the wake of the massive hack of Sony as the studio prepares to open its controversial comedy The Interview, star and co-writer Seth Rogen said he’s wondering how much he should “try to insert something that is a little bit above garbage” into his movies.

This in response to a question from George Stephanopoulos as to whether he, like the talk show producer he plays in the movie, is thinking about doing something “more serious” in the wake of the controversy that’s erupted over The Interview.

A group calling itself Guardians of Peace has claimed responsibility for the hack, which it says is in retaliation for Rogen’s movie about a talk show host (James Franco) and his producer who are asked by the CIA to assassinate North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un. The group claims to have stolen 100 terabytes of data from Sony servers (10 terabytes can »

The Hollywood Hacking Scandal: Is No One Safe?

15 December 2014 5:04 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Fallout continues in the Sony hacking scandal and it seems that no one in Hollywood is safe as the group allegedly responsible, Guardians of the Peace, is now reportedly threatening to release new information every day.

"I'm not going to stand in judgment of somebody else's emails," Oprah Winfrey told Et. "And I feel that you cannot judge a person's life and career based upon a set of emails and we don't know even know what the context was ... People say things amongst their friends and within a company or an environment where they feel comfortable that you wouldn't want to see printed or broadcast on Entertainment Tonight. I think that I'm going to reserve judgment on it until I know more."

Can Sony Get Around the First Amendment to Sue the Media Over the Hack? (Analysis)

15 December 2014 11:58 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

On Sunday night, famed attorney David Boies sent a threatening letter on behalf of Sony Pictures to The Hollywood Reporter, The New York Times and other news organizations demanding destruction of stolen information and warning of consequences for publishing the company's secrets. If Sony does decide to go to court against the media over revelations that keep coming — Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt wish to reboot Ghostbusters, George Clooney lost faith in The Monuments Men, Sony executives weren't thrilled by Leonardo DiCaprio dropping out of a Steve Jobs biopic — the First Amendment stands as a roadblock.

Aaron Sorkin: Media printing Sony hack details is morally treasonous

15 December 2014 2:04 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Aaron Sorkin has hit out at the media for publishing details obtained by the hack on Sony Pictures' computers by the Guardians of Peace.

The creator of The West Wing and The Newsroom wrote a column in the New York Times saying there was little public interest in the details.

Leonardo DiCaprio labelled 'despicable' in hacked Sony emails

"The Guardians just had to lob the ball; they knew our media would crash the boards and slam it in," said Sorkin.

"First, salaries were published. Not by the hackers, but by American news outlets."

He continued: "Then came the emails. A squabble between the Sony executive Amy Pascal and the producer Scott Rudin, an inappropriate and racially charged exchange, an insulting critique of recent Adam Sandler movies, a new idea for the Spider-Man franchise. Published. Everywhere."

Aaron Sorkin calls Sony hack media scavengers 'morally treasonous' and 'dishonorable'

14 December 2014 6:46 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I've sort of just sat back in muted horror all week as a lot of entertainment journalists have finally gotten their moment in the sun, to act like the Fourth Estate in the wake of the Sony hack, to act as if bitchy emails and spreadsheets documenting famous people's salaries somehow equate to The Pentagon Papers. I've read my computer screen, mouth agape, as writers have tried to explain it away as an unprecedented gray area, when all I see is fundamental black and white. The ethical ickiness has been shrill and it's been shrieking. It seems "The Newsroom" creator Aaron Sorkin (no stranger to hot button issues, he) feels similarly. Sorkin wrote the script for an upcoming Steve Jobs biopic that made for much of the early fodder in this mess as it was chewed over in private emails between producer Scott Rudin and Sony co-chair Amy Pascal.

Gosling Wanted For "Ghostbusters," "Sinister"

14 December 2014 9:22 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Unlike some other young actors out there, Ryan Gosling is famous for being notoriously picky when it comes to the projects he works in. Nevertheless, every studio wants him for their blockbusters - especially the superhero franchises. The question has always been which one would be the one he would eventually jump on.

After turning down both "Suicide Squad" and "Doctor Strange," it now appears the actor may be a part of not one but two major film franchises at Sony Pictures according to The Daily Beast.

The site apparently has information indicating Gosling is keen on being involved in "Ghostbusters 3". Paul Feig is directing that movie which stars an all-female team, though Pascal indicates the film has one major male role.

If it goes through, it could be a reunion with his "Crazy Stupid Love" and "Gangster Squad" co-star Emma Stone who Feig is keen to land for the film. »

Lisa Kudrow on Sony Emails: ‘Don’t Write Anything You Don’t Want Broadcast’

13 December 2014 4:37 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Lisa Kudrow has some advice in light of the Sony cyber-attack: “Don’t write anything you don’t want broadcast.”

The “Friends” alum and “Comeback” star discussed the right to privacy on “The Huffpost Show” on Friday.

“How come I know you don’t write anything you don’t want broadcast in an email? How come I know that? Who’s advising people?” Kudrow told Huffington Post network president Roy Sekoff, referring to the Sony execs whose dirty laundry has been aired after hackers released stolen emails.

Kudrow said people would be better off if they had no expectation of privacy in email exchanges.

“It doesn’t matter how many times it says ‘This is confidential, meant for just between the sender and the recipient,'” Kudrow said. “Why don’t we know that there are no rules? Everything is broadcast and published. That’s the part I just don’t understand. »

Leonardo DiCaprio Called ‘Despicable’ in New Sony Emails

13 December 2014 1:59 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s widely known that Leonardo DiCaprio was originally supposed to play Steve Jobs but later passed on the upcoming Aaron Sorkin movie. What isn’t common knowledge: how Amy Pascal and the film’s producer took the news.

“Horrible behavior,” producer Mark Gordon wrote. “Actually despicable,” Pascal corrected him.

According to the stolen emails, published by the Daily Beast on Saturday, Gordon had asked the Sony Pictures co-chairman whether DiCaprio’s decision to pull out of the Apple biopic was based on money or not.

Pascal replied “the latter.”

The role ultimately went to Michael Fassbender (after Christian Bale passed, too) and the movie, which originated at Sony, was eventually picked up by Universal Pictures.

Sony declined to comment on this story.

It’s the latest fallout from a paralyzing cyber-attack against Sony Pictures in recent weeks that has seen employee information, personal emails and unreleased movies hit the Web. »

Sony Hackers Promise Large ‘Christmas Gift’

13 December 2014 12:12 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Sony hackers released a seventh dump of files online Saturday morning and promised a larger “Christmas gift” that will “put Sony Pictures into the worst state.”

A spokesman for Sony had no immediate comment.

It’s unknown what exactly the stolen documents released on Saturday were but, according to Re-Code, they may have consisted of files relating to the video site Crackle and former Sony exec Jim Underwood, who now works at Facebook.

The FBI is investigating the massive cyber-attack that began Nov. 24 and continues to wreak havoc at the Culver City-based studio.

On Saturday, the Daily Beast published new emails from Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal in which she ridiculed Leonardo DiCaprio for passing on the Steve Jobs biopic.

“Was this about the deal…or did he just change his mind,” wrote producer Mark Gordon. “The latter,” responded Pascal. “Horrible behavior,” Gordon said, to which Pascal replied, “Actually despicable. »

30 Best TV Series of 2014

12 December 2014 9:27 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

2014 has been yet another fantastic year for television, one that continued the nichification of the medium, with highly specific and underrepresented voices breaking through in every genre. There was a comedy explosion, particularly on cable, with dozens of new series presenting confident first seasons and several returning shows reaching new heights. The dramas didn’t disappoint either, with visionary creators bringing new life to familiar settings and taking greater risks with their returning series, deepening their worlds. Throughout the year, directors and cinematographers brought lush visuals, composers pushed the auditory envelope, and an astonishing number of actors gave fantastic, memorable performances. More than a few shows delivered spectacle on a weekly basis, while others went small, deriving incredible power out of stillness and self-reflection. Some series swept the audience up, week in and week out, and others built subtly, only showing their hand in their season’s final episodes. There »

'I am God,' Dan's apology, and other reasons we put up with Aaron Sorkin

12 December 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On Sunday night, "The Newsroom" comes to an end — and with it, apparently, Aaron Sorkin's time in television. Sorkin has created four TV series over the last 16 years: one little-viewed but fondly-remembered comedy ("Sports Night"), one beloved, award-winning drama ("The West Wing"), one utter mess ("Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip"), and most recently "The Newsroom," which has very vocal defenders and detractors, who always seem to be talking past each other in the same uncivil way that the show's characters lament about modern discourse. I've generally fallen into the detractor camp, pleased with what he's shown Olivia Munn can do as a comedienne, and enjoying a few isolated moments, but otherwise taking great issue with much of what Sorkin was doing from the first season all the way until this last one. But if Sorkin sticks to his promise to never return return to series television — "never" being »
