This week, the FBI stands firm on the Sony hack, a top VC’s predictions for 2015, Apple unlocks the iPhone, DISH wants you to cut cable, thousands of free games, and drones on demand. All this, and much much more…
According to the Wall Street Journal, leaked e-mails out of Sony Pictures have revealed plans for a potential crossover between two unlikely franchises of theirs, 21 Jump Street and Men in Black.
That’s right, we could just see Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum discovering the secret world of aliens living among us in 23 Jump Street (which will likely be titled something else if this actually happens). The e-mails also make it clear that Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones wouldn’t be starring in the movie, though smaller cameo appearances aren’t ruled out.
In the wake of the recent hack at Sony, four of the studio’s upcoming films have already been uploaded to various sharing sites, salaries have been revealed, employees have expressed how they feel about some of the films that are being produced, social security numbers have been leaked, and numerous threats have been made towards employees. While the studio is attempting to get a handle of the situation, it is clear that a lot of damage has been done.
As Sony moves forward, it’s likely we’ll learn what kinds of things were leaked. The Wall Street Journal has done some digging, and have found as a result of the leaks that Sony has had discussions with Marvel about sharing Spider-Man, and that there have been talks with The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller about an animated comedy.
