This Sony Pictures hack has revealed some extremely strange and surprising information. For example, there is only one female Sony employee earning more than $1 million. There is a very concerning gender and racial discrepancy among Sony’s highest-paid employees.
The leaked documents revealed that the list of Sony’s highest-paid executives is 94% male and 88% white. This leaked information makes Chris Rock’s recent essay on Hollywood’s race problem even more interesting.
But let’s switch gears to something even more depressing than sexism and racism. Leaked emails have revealed that Sony is planning on making a crossover movie between the Men in Black and Jump Street franchises. The film, which does not have a script yet, is set up for 2016 or 2017 release.
And since there is no script, we obviously don’t have too many details on this potential disaster; however, we do know Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will not star in the film. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum will be back, and Jonah Hill is apparently excited about the idea.
The actor sent an email to studio head Amy Pascal saying, “jump street merging with mib i think that’s clean and rad and powerful.”
Chris Miller and Phil Lord are currently working on the script and will reportedly produce the film. It’s also being reported that Sony wants Steven Spielberg to participate in the making of this movie.
What do you think? Would you watch it?
