It appears that a more complete collection of the Sony leaked emails have been made available online. On the Natalie front there are a couple items worth mentioning…
Firstly, Sony is working on an adaptation of a young adult set of novels called The Fifth Wave series, in which the world has been kicked back to the stone-age after an alien invasion. The emails reveal that Natalie was the number one choice for the role of Reznik, a tough drill sergeant who trains the kids.
That sounds like some awful casting to me and it seems that Natalie agreed as later emails confirmed that Natalie read the script and passed on it.
Secondly, Michael Lynton, the chief executive at Sony, mentions A Tale of Love and Darkness in passing to another a friend at The New Yorker.
ps I saw Natalie Portman’s film based on the Amos Oz book on Monday. She directed it. It is in Hebrew and is great. You may want to do something with it.
Thanks to Sarah.
