Sony Hack Reveals Exec Wants Idris Elba as the Next James Bond

According to leaked emails floating on the web following Sony Hack, Sony's co-chairman Amy Pascal says in an exchange, 'Idris should be the next bond.'

AceShowbiz - New bits of information leaked online following a cyber attack targeting Sony Pictures Entertainment in late November have surfaced. On Friday, December 19, The Daily Beast reported that the studio might already have someone in mind to replace %cDaniel Craig% as James Bond. Craig, who is currently filming the 24th Bond movie "Spectre", is signed for one more flick in the James Bond franchise.

The info was gained from an email exchange between Sony's co-chairman Amy Pascal and former executive vice president of production for Columbia Pictures Elizabeth Cantillon dated January 4. Back then, Pascal allegedly said, "[%cIdris Elba%] should be the next bond."

Emails from executives' inbox are among items which were spread online after a group which called themselves Guardians of Peace hacked into Sony's system on November 24. %cAngelina Jolie%, who recently was called "minimally talented spoiled brat" in a private exchange between producer Scott Rudin and Pascal, was mentioned in another exchange which was published by Gawker on Wednesday.

This time, the conversation focused on conflict between Jolie, who wanted David Fincher to direct "Cleopatra", and Rudin who also wanted Fincher for the untitled Steve Jobs biopic. At one point, Rudin wrote to Pascal, "She's seriously out of her mind."

On Friday, another private email which allegedly was written by Marvel President Alan Fine in 2012 also surfaced online. According to a screengrab posted by The MCU Exchange, he was making some criticism towards "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" script in the emails, adding, "I wanted to burn the draft after I read it, never mind thinking about buying the DVD."

President Obama has addressed the massive security breach targeting Sony in a press conference on Friday. Apart from his criticism to Sony following their decision to cancel "The Interview" theatrical release, another highlight from the president's speech is when he said he liked the actors %cSeth Rogen% and "James Flacco", mixing up %cJames Franco% with the Baltimore Ravens quarterback %cJoe Flacco%.

"@barackobama It's James Franco, not James Flacco ;)," the athlete wrote on Twitter, before poking fun at the mistake, "Welcome to the family, brother. @JamesFrancoTV."
