Fallout from the Sony hacking incident seems to be ongoing. The cyber pirates released a series of blistering emails by one of Hollywood’s premier producers, which shows him ripping Angelina Jolie, calling the actress “minimally talented spoiled brat” who wants to take take a luxurious soak in a “$180 million ego bath”.

The scathing emails were written by big shot producer Scott Rudin and was leaked by the Sony hackers.

Rudin, who has produced some of the biggest big screen hits, blasted Jolie for trying to lure director David Fincher into directing her “Cleopatra” movie instead of Rudin’s planned film about Steve Jobs .

In an email with Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal, Rudin angrily writes: “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.”

Rudin also said he refused to “waste” his time on a phone call discussing the “Maleficent” star’s problems with Fincher and his film.

“The masturbatory call is a wank I have no time for,” Rudin allegedly wrote on Feb. 27.

In another all-caps screed, he allegedly told Pascal, “YOU BETTER SHUT ANGIE DOWN BEFORE SHE MAKES IT VERY HARD FOR DAVID TO DO JOBS.”

Pascal replied back warning the big wig  not to “f— threaten” her, Rudin then responded  by thrashing Jolie again and her intent to play the ancient Egypt’s most notorious seductress.

“There is no movie of Cleopatra to be made … I have zero appetite for the indulgence of spoiled brats and I will tell her this myself if you don’t.”

The subject of the Jobs movie then became the center of the email exchange, which is based on Walter Isaacson’s authoritative 2011 biography.

Sony acquired the rights for a Rudin-produced flick right away, but the project has been stalled in recent months.

The project has shifted from Sony to Universal, with Danny Boyle being tapped to direct, not Fincher.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale and Michael Fassbender were linked to the starring role, but all three reportedly turned it down.

“I’ve told you exactly how I want to do this material,” Rudin allegedly wrote, before again taking aim at Jolie.

“It’s the ONLY way I want to do this material. 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,” the missive said.

“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.”

Sony has refused to comment on the bombshell emails, which is just the latest embarrassment for the studio since computer hackers breached its firewall,downloaded several new movies and stole troves of sensitive data.
