Sony Pictures hacked documents talking about Spiderman Franchise, supposedly a conversation within Sony:
Are you aware that Men In Black 3 may gross $600M at the box office, and yet will lose money for SPE? Shouldn't we question that strategy? Why are some studios making Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Twilight - and we are considering movies like Moneyball, Steve Jobs story, Captain Phillips Story, Evel Knievel story, etc. Are you aware that SPE only has 1 franchise - Spiderman. Yet, it took 5 years to generate a sequel? Spidey 3 was released in summer 2007, #4 in 2012. Don't harry potters come out over 2-3 years?
Are you aware that SPE has only 1 franchise - Spidey? Yet we waited 5 years after Spidey 3 (2007) to release #4? Have you read the SEC annual report? Disney will make $300M on Spidey merchandise this year alone. We won't!
A few employee complaints within the workers inside the company:
"Seems like we just reboot old product instead of coming up with new ideas like the Hunger Games," "There is a general "blah-ness" to the films we produce," "we continue to be saddled with the mundane, formulaic Adam Sandler films," and "Stop making the same, safe, soul-less movies and TV shows."
More hacked documents are being sifted through so more info and conversations as such should be coming up online in the near future.
