Update: Sony Email Hacks

Kanye West Wants A $12,500 Bed For North While He's On Tour

A bit overwhelmed by the Sony email hacks? Yeah, me too.

I’m gonna break down the latest news in this epic hacker nightmare, and I’m gonna do it quick.  Firstly, the hacking itself is being perpetrated by aomysterious group calling themselves “Guardians of Peace.” They’ve already caused a lot of company damage, leaking employee salaries (revealing a troubling gender pay gap), racist jabs at President Barack Obama and insults at A-listers like Angelina Jolie, Kevin Hart, and Leonardo DiCaprio, to name a few.

So what’s happening right now? A spiderman reboot, female spidey movie and two music biopics: Destiny’s Child and Kanye West!

New leaks reveal a Spider-Man reboot (again),with interesting plans for Peter Parker. In an October 13 email from co-president of production for Columbia Pictures Michael De Luca to co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment Amy Pascal, De Luca reveals plans for a Spider-Man three cameo in the third Captain America film, Captain America: Civil War, which is scheduled to hit theaters May 6, 2016.

“I really feel, in my heart of hearts, that the new spiderman [sic] in cap 3 could just appear in his own film, be it sinister six or a kick ass spidey film of his own, after that intro in cap 3 and people would be cool with it,” wrote De Luca via The Daily Beast.

Also, a female spidey movie?! According to The Daily Beast:

In  an email dated September 20, De Luca to Pascal discusses plans for not only a “female spidey movie,” but an Avengers-like superhero extravaganza incorporating characters from different upcoming Spider-Man-related projects—in an attempt to emulate what De Luca reveals is a planned Fox crossover of the X-Men and Fantastic Four teams (X-Men: Apocalypse is due in 2016, while The Fantastic Four hits theaters in 2015).

Also, some big music Biopics were on the docket!  In an email from Screen Gems honcho Clint Culpepper to Pascal on Dec 4th, Culpepper reveals a Destiny’s Child movie in the works.

Matthew Knowles, Beyonce’s Father wants to make the film of Destiny’s Child and came to me first,” wrote Culpepper. “He’s going to Universal next. Do we think it would be a successful film? They’re on Sony label. I’m just not sure that it’s not too soon.

Finally,  in an email dated August 4, 2014, Kanye West’s creative director Elon Rutberg to Pascal discusses a potential pitch for a Kanye West feature film.

“I supervise all of Kanye’s film and media projects, and we have a major film project coming up that involves both cinematic and technological innovation, so I naturally thought Sony and wanted to reach out,” wrote Rutberg. “We premiered a multi-screen cinema experience to great response at Cannes 2012, and are looking to take the storytelling to the next level with a feature length film, shot for an immersive cinema experience.”

Woah.  So many projects exposed. Which ones do you feel are the most exciting? Do you think this email hacking will jeopardize any of these projects?

Katie Holmes Rocks a Canadian Tux

Katie Holmes Stops By A Birthday Party

Here’s Suri‘s keeper Katie Holmes stopping by a LA birthday party on Saturday.

Man, I can’t beat the post-turkey bulge but Katie is looking dapper as all hell in her different color jean combo.  She dropped little Suri off before heading to the party alone and looking skinny and casual, but just enough wintry for my taste (I hate seeing celebs in sundresses right now. I know it’s LA, but it’s Dec for goodness freakin’ sakes!).

I think that this Miss Meadows star is back, and better than EVER. What do you think of her classic style?

What’s on Suri Cruise’s Christmas List?

Katie Holmes & Daughter At The Farmer's Market

Suri Cruise is ready for Christmas! At least, according to her mom Katie Holmes

Katie stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, where she discussed how she’s getting ready for the holidays with her daughter:

“She already has her Christmas list ready,” the 35-year-old Miss Meadows star told host Ellen DeGeneres. “It’s written out. She’s very organized and I start to get a little bit of a panic because you cannot screw up talking to Santa. You cannot miss any item on that list, because if you screw that up, that’s years and years of hearing about it—and then probably therapy.”

“She’s practical,” Holmes added. “She’s just very specific.”

How specific are we talkin,’ Katie?

“‘I want a puppy,’ and then, ‘I want a pink collar that has sparkles on it that says the puppy’s name,’ then, ‘I want shoes for the dog,'” said Holmes, who clarified that her daughter wants a real puppy and not a stuffed toy. “‘I want a purple clip.’ It’s all very detailed!”

A purple clip and a puppy? I say do it, Katie!

Justin Bieber Gets in TROUBLE for Graffiti

Justin Bieber Out Shopping In West Hollywood

Justin Bieber is no Banksy, even though one hotel in Australia is treating him as such!

While staying at the QT Hotel in the Gold Coast,  Justin Bieber and others posted images online showing cartoon faces in fluorescent paint on an outdoor wall at the hotel in Queensland state.

After hearing criticism, the hotel asserted that they had let Bieber spray the outside of their walls, and changed their Facebook page cover art Thursday to show Bieber, his graffiti and the declaration: “He asked, and we said YES.”

The Gold Coast mayor Tom Tate was NOT happy about the QT embracing the illegal act, says the singer risked undermining the city’s efforts to fight graffiti. “The last thing we want is to have graffiti glorified and more young people thinking it’s a cool thing to do,” he said (via Dailynews).

The QT Hotel is defending Bieber as an excellent hotel guest and said it wanted to promote graffiti as an art form. It has also invited artists to share examples of their work to be judged, with select artists being offered a hotel wall they could spray-paint themselves.

To see pics of the Bieb’s graffiti, go HERE!

Who do you think is right- Tate or QT?
