Plot against Baltasar’s Everest in Leaked Sony Archives

In the documents from Sony Pictures Entertainment, published by WikiLeaks yesterday, Icelandic director Baltasar Kormákur’s movie Everest, produced by Working Title, is discussed. Sony was planning a similar movie project at the same time and plots to kill Baltasar’s movie were mentioned in the leaked documents, reports.

However, Baltasar began shooting in January and Sony decided to postpone their project. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin and Keira Knightley, among others, Everest features the 1996 Mount Everest disaster and is based on Jon Krakauer’s Into Thin Air. The premiere is scheduled on September 18, 2015.

WikiLeaks justifies the leak of the Sony Archives by reasoning that behind the scenes, Sony is an influential corporation with ties to the White House, an ability to impact laws and policies, and connections to the U.S. military-industrial complex.

“This archive shows the inner workings of an influential multinational corporation. It is newsworthy and at the centre of a geo-political conflict. It belongs in the public domain. WikiLeaks will ensure it stays there,” WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange said.
