Sony Execs Hate the New George Clooney Movie, ‘Money Monster’


Sony Execs Hate the New George Clooney Movie, ‘Money Monster’ which is currently filming in New York City.

Sony Execs hate the new George Clooney movie, ‘Money Monster’. According to leaked emails posted by WikiLeaks, Sony executive Michael Lynton hates the upcoming ‘Money Monster’ feature film.

I hate it.  The worst version of Falling Down and Network.  The writers are not Paddy C.  It is simplistic, bombastic, wrong headed and stupid.  All that being said….if the numbers work and there is no risk then I am ok.  But this is a really stupid piece of material.   M

Money Monster is currently filming in New York City and casting directors are currently seeking extras throughout the big apple.

Money Monster centers around Lee Gates, a TV personality whose insider tips have made him the money guru of Wall Street. When Kyle loses all of his family’s money on a bad tip, he holds Lee and his entire show hostage on air threatening to kill Lee if he does not get the stock up 24 and a half points before the bell. Ratings soar as the entire country tunes in to this media frenzy to find out just how much a man’s life is worth. Meanwhile, the hostage situation sheds light on a possible scandal involving the company in question. With elements of Dog Day Afternoon and Network, Money Monster is a very timely piece in these economic times.
