Variety Report: Sony's Bad Rep Keeps Lego Directors Away

Over the weekend Variety’s David S. Cohen put out a bombshell of an article with information from stolen emails from the Sony Hack. It describes their failed attempt to get the directors of “The Lego Movie” (and Sony’s “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs”) to head up a brain trust to oversee their animation department. A key part of the article is when senior Sony execs learned that Sony had a bad reputation and had lost all of their good people due to their relocation to Vancouver.

It’s a fascinating look inside the inner workings of one of the major studios, highly recommend you check it out.
