Did Angie cause ‘Jobs’ biopic production to flop? Find
out below
In the leaked emails published by Gawker » , Angelina
Jolie » became a topic of discussion in a fiery
exchange from February 2014 between ‘Jobs’ producer
Scott Rudin and Sony Pictures co-chairperson Amy
Pascal where the actress was referred to as a ‘a
minimally talented spoiled brat’.
Apparently, the actress complained about David Fincher
chosen to direct the upcoming ‘Jobs’ biopic – produced
by Scott – as opposed to a re-make of ‘Cleopatra’ that
she would play the lead character.
When told that Jolie wanted to talk about the change
with the film’s producer, Scott told Pascal, ‘She’ll
survive it. I don’t want to waste my time on this.’

Scott Rudin continued his disgust towards the
Maleficient star by sending another mail to Pascal later
that same day where he wrote:
‘YOU BETTER SHUT ANGIE DOWN BEFORE SHE MAKES
IT VERY HARD FOR DAVID TO DO JOBS.’
But Pascal responded with, ‘Do not f**king threaten
me.’
Rudin’s alleged email states:
‘There is no movie of Cleopatra to be made (and how
that is a bad thing and rampaging spoiled ego of this
woman and the cost of the movie is beyond me) and if
you won’t tell her that you do not like the script —
which, let me remind you, SHE DOESN’T EITHER — this
will just spin even further out in Crazyland but let me
tell you I have zero appetite for the indulgence of
spoiled brats and I will tell her this myself if you don’t.’.
‘If you engage in this again, we will end up losing
Fincher on the one we want him to do and will be stuck
with shoving him onto a movie with no script that,
underneath it all, you know in your heart and your brain
should never be made,’ he apparently writes in the
email.
‘I’m not remotely interested in presiding over a $180m
ego bath that we both know will be the career-defining
debacle for us both.
‘I’m not destroying my career over a minimally talented
spoiled brat who thought nothing of shoving this off
her plate for eighteen months so she could go direct a
movie. I have no desire to be making a movie with her,
or anybody, that she runs and that we don’t.’
‘She’s a camp event and a celebrity and that’s all and
the last thing anybody needs is to make a giant bomb
with her that any fool could see coming.
‘We will end up being the laughing stock of our industry
and we will deserve it, which is so clearly where this is
headed that I cannot believe we are still wasting our
time with it.’
Unfortunately for Rudin, Fincher is no longer attached
to Jobs, which is being directed by Danny Boyle. As
also reported in mid-November, original star Christian
Bale has also opted out and has been replaced by
Michael Fassbender. The project has now been picked
up by Universal after being dropped by Sony.
