If North Korea intended to inflict pain on Sony Film Studios, over the upcoming Seth Rogen and James Franco film about North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un, they certainly achieved their goal.

According to the Defamer, Comedian Kevin Hart thinks he deserves more than $3 million to tweet, according to this leaked straight out of Sony.

The permanently upcoming Steve Jobs biopic has been hotly anticipated since it was first reported.

The email exchange between Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal with ANOTHER studio exec Clint Culpepper, and  Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton describes Kevin Hart’s continued success with Sony films.

In promoting a new upcoming film, possibly Think Like a Man Too,  the studio wanted Hart to write a 140-characters-or-less statement or three about his new movie.

However in the email exchanges, the execs say Hart wanted more money to go on social media.

From the Defamer–

“I’m not saying he’s a whore, but he’s a whore.”

More money, in addition to the three million he was already being paid. To tweet. And maybe do some Instagram stuff. And my god, Culpepper adds, think of the precedent!

It’s not as if we paid him 3M and 4M respectively for his last 2 films thinking he might be nominated. We paid for his ability to open a film which included his social media savvy. I feel like this is something that should be negotiated going into the film as opposed to after the fact. It feels tantamount to buying a car and then upon picking it up being told that the engine will cost extra. I’m tempted to suggest we call his bluff. If he doesn’t do his normal routine, his film will not open as well and his brand will appear diminished and he will- in fact – be fucking himself because we have his next 2 immediate films. And then there’s the social media precedent we’re setting…especially in light of the fact that Channing is at the same agency.

An interesting ontological question: is an actor’s social media presence included when you pay them a giant sum? Just kidding, thats not interesting, it’s insane.
