Sony Confirms At Least 10 Movies and TV Shows Based on PlayStation Franchises In the Works
"The headline here. Sony has seven. Tv shows and three movies in development based on playstation games. No word on if the uncharted movie and the last of us tv series are included in that count So this came directly from sony pictures chairman and ceo where he revealed that his studio is developing seven tv shows. Movies based on playstation games They didn't name any names. Which i thought was interesting They didn't name any dates. Either i mean it's it's interesting right. The big headline. It's a catchy headline. It goes back to sort of a common theme here which is disney. Everything becoming disney The question is what seven tv shows and three movies are going to. Are they gonna make like the you would think they would have less than a little bit. I with the slate of tv's shows and movies sort of being hit or miss on the gaming front. Why not name specific so that they could get some kind of audience feedback and reaction guys. Think i'm particularly interested in these. Tv shows a lot harder than you know. Hour and a half to our movie like a lot of how are they going to agreed entire development but like for example last of us just as as an example. I see that much more as a series tv series than a movie way that one. Either you know. Like uncharted awesome movie. I would watch the movie in a second. But i'm charted obvious here right. Yeah so it out. It's like fixed indiana jones. It's like deanna jones but good. Now let potlucks i. I should say indiana jones. That came out rock. Indiana jones was always incredible and the first three movies are amazing. I mean the margin just to be very clear yes. Indiana jones is amazing. Don't worry paul. We still agree on that. I was about to go after. There is no joy in my heart. I do not like any film harrison. Ford what's that other big zombie series. I wife walking dead right won't wouldn't the last of us tv series feel like a lot like walking dead walking very successful true. True that is shockingly popular like however pushes won't feel and look very much the same. I don't know well. I could say that about every zombie movie ever doesn't days later feel like dawn of the dead. Feel like i don't know you know. Heart of darkness feel like our army of darkness. Like i mean there's zombie thing. Apparently we can have infinitely many of them. People still watch them martin's comments maybe the best here god of war movie would be incredible. I agree but let me come back to the original question here. Why why not announce what they're going to be. I think sony's like. Ip slate is clear. What sony actually owns either man part of that interesting. I think everybody tamargo. Marvin moons But i think there was something with. Sony had movie rights now marble makes the movies but sony distributes it but i think the characters owned by marvel but don't you agree that sony's ip is not crystal clear at least to me well especially without announcing what these shows are. I had no idea what that would make a. you know. I mean uncharted. And last of us were legitimately the only do that. I thought of has a theory why they would announce this without naming names might still figuring out pregnant prematurely sony and william. You might have better with this. But they're i think they're they're video game department way more higher class than their their movie studio and their production studio. I don't think sony pictures is particularly You know they're kind of like the fourth or fifth player. I think in the in the studio in the movie. Production game Obviously sony entertainment on the video game side is very well respected as developer. So i don't know if they can actually execute on this plan. We kind of talked about the riot. How we thought riot would actually which is ironic because ryan has never had anything to do with movies. But i think. I personally feel more confident riot. Being able to make a movie slash. Tv shell about league of legends. Than i am about sony which actually is in the business of making movies. Is it going to be able to have that magic s word. Synergy to in the movie and entertainment. That's so interesting. Because i have a much higher confidence in sony than riot and i'll i'll just i'll just be very simple. It's like. I actually think. Sony has blueprints or more coherent blueprint for what to do like the uncharted movie. They could literally take dialogue and scenes from the game and it would be a good movie. Like i think of uncharted. Moore's movie than a game right like they literally at the equivalent of the marvel comics story board like they can just take the game and take out the like. they're good. they're i think lee has a harder goal there because what is like. What's the story of league of legends. Jeff do you know who's the protagonist like i. I'm sure there are answers to this. And i think i might go no. I don't think anybody really does raise. Like the reality is they. Were pretty complicated. I'm taking crazy. Maybe those riots berretta blizzard and other Do i think riot can pull it off. Yes yes this is not like right. It's gonna make it. I think they're make a great movie. But i think it's much easier for sony because sony literally needs to pick an uncharted game. Get this got the script descriptive at cut it down to two hours and film it and it will be just fine. The games are designed to be like movies. They're set piece moments witty banter reasonably sharp characters and interesting relationships between them like they're gold. You know what i mean. And i think the same by the way of god of war i legitimately think than this last god of war probably might have been better as murphy in some regards like i enjoyed the story and the setpiece moment so much and the camera work was cinematic. Like half of let me the last god of war good was like how beautiful it looked and how it drew you into the narrative with immersion and and that was all i think it was all camera camera lights like perfect for though so

The Frame 5th Anniversary Special
"We launched the frame. We were doing something for the the very first time I had been a print reporter my entire life so we ask our guests for stories when they first succeeded or failed old. We have a thirty second request though in two weeks. Everybody who comes on is saying the first thing that something happened. I M Gena Davis and the first time fine I got cast in a movie was in tootsie. Few the first job did I failed and actually got fired on American gangster. I'm John Stewart the first time. I've bobbed onstage. funnily enough was the first time I was on stage. For some reason I was absolutely not nervous at all. The first scene was with Dustin Hoffman in my underwear but what I learned from that was Is Not all about me and you have to learn how to advocate sometimes as a filmmaker The Bitter End New York City. One o'clock in the morning following three doors cover bands. I had a good five minutes prepared about two minutes into the audience realized I might suck at this. The funniest thing was I didn't know you're only supposed to come on the days that you're working and nobody bothered to to tell me for six weeks. I showed up at six and went home when everybody else did. I'd get a chair and put it right next to Sydney Pollack considerable bad day avenue. I still feel that page on the is I walked into the night I thought to myself you know. There are a lot of law schools if I could I could go to them. And our first guest in two thousand fourteen was Christopher Nolan He. He was about to release his movie. Interstellar a lot of people are saying that this is your most personal film. How do you respond to that? You take a compliment. You think they might be right. I basic they don't know me so I I do you know yourself. I don't know Myself Derby when either you've been a lot of real world events that have driven our coverage over the years but the one that coincided with our launch was a Sony Hack today today the. US government pointed the finger of blame directly at North Korea with a devastating cyber attack against Sony. Pictures taken down the movie. The interview. That poked fun on at the North Korean dictator whole. They caused a Lotta damage. The cyber attack of Sony pictures which allegedly was conducted by North Korea came in response to a movie. It was called the interview. It Starts Seth Rogan and James Franco. It was a crazy story. It evolved every day and in the middle of it Dan Sterling in who was the screenwriter of the interview was with us in studio. Hi thanks for having me. It's very rare that a screenwriter is like with us to talk about breaking news news so I guess my breaking news questions. What the Hell's going on today? Well I just know what's going on in my email inbox which is an increasing flood of people asking me if if I'm okay both emotionally physically and financially was your answer. What do you tell you know? I was at a party on Saturday night where the host was introducing me to everybody the at the Party as this is the guy that brought down Sony exit was funny. Well the first four or five hundred times. The joke was made. It was funny except Except actually it's a way it's actually not funny to me I'm It's been a surreal experience. I'm still very much in the middle of the one thing that I know that I'm not happy about is actually The real suffering that is going on at Sony. Not Not just by the person who green lit my films so bravely but also by all the other people affected by the hack. I'm quite concerned about them there. There's so much about this story. We'll get to the film in it in a second. But what about about the reaction to the film itself has been the most surprising to you. Well look About a year ago today I was I was on a sound stage age and I was at the monitor watching Seth Rogan who was completely naked except for a sock around his penis and he had a bunch of Salami Alami tucked between his buttocks that a German shepherd was eating out of because the scene was he was being Sniffed by you know a bomb sniffing dog and I was laughing my head off sitting next to his mother who seemed to be used to these sorts of things and she was knitting a scarf and at the time Nothing like any. This could have occurred to me because the movie is just a in our minds was supposed to be an outrageous of course somewhat provocative but totally hilarious comedy which I think that it is but the the the reaction by the North Korean government was surprising to me And all of the things that have ensued have been. Ah I was quite naive going into

Five Years Later, Who Really Hacked Sony?
"Welcome to the frame. I'm John Horn five years ago. Oh just as Thanksgiving approached employs at Sony pictures logged into their computers and were greeted by this ominous message hacked by Hashtag copay over a picture of a sinister looking red skeleton. GOP reportedly stands for guardians of peace a previously unknown group now claiming credit for the hack the the hackers leaked millions of files putting confidential employee. Information and embarrassing e mails about the studios internal workings out in the Open Ben. Fritz there's an editor at the Wall Street Journal and the author of the book. The big picture the fight for the future of movies and he remembers being in the Journal. Newsroom when he heard about the hack I remember I remember reading about it online and talking to a few sources I knew what Sony and of course it I I didn't really understand the magnitude of it and how how damaging it would be that it wasn't until the next week I believe when When they started leaking all these documents and information I started to see some of the stuff that was coming out and realized? Just how serious this was for. Those who don't remember the hack was quickly connected to North Korea and Kim Jong Moons anger over the film the interview. It started Seth Rogan James Franco as a couple of TV. TV journalists who are going to interview and potentially assassinate the North Korean president. And at the time we were interviewing the screenwriter. Dan Sterling this. This is back in two thousand fourteen. You know I was at a party. On Saturday night where the per- the host was introducing me to everybody at the party. As this is the guy that brought down Sony. It was funny by that. Well the first four or five hundred times the joke was made It was funny except actually in a way. It's actually not funny to me. How was the heck essentially blamed on the movie and was that theory actually borne out after the fact? North Korea was in fact behind the hacking and Kim Jong was very very mad. That this you know American film was was was mocking him. Northwards of very poor country but they do actually have A. It's kind of very good Hacking program and He wanted to stop them from coming out and or punish Sony for having made it and he was pretty successful on both fronts. At the time the leading theory experts was there was North Korea but a lot of people around Sony. Thought it couldn't be eight or maybe it was angry at employee's rivals or something but The the FBI About a year ago concluded pretty definitively that it wasn't Korea and in fact they indicted Somebody who was part of a North korean-backed hacking team that was called the Lazarus project and was for numerous cybercrimes including the intrusion at Sony. That a lot of people forget. Is that the movie. We didn't really get released. I mean Sony was so worried about it that they pulled the release and then they kind of backtracked on that and at the time we were talking gene with a guy named James cursed he's the founder of. La's downtown independent theatre. He is in the studio talking about the movie. And this is what happens. There's been so much we were getting calls about it. My phone's ringing up. Oh it's the REP from Sony. Go ahead take it. Hi this the gym so he actually gets a call from Sony in the middle of the interview pain. Can you play the. Can you play movie in your theater. It ends up not getting getting much of an exhibition schedule at all. Does it. No it only a few hundred independent theaters briefly What happened was the hackers threatened that they were going to Bomb or cause violence at at an attack any theater that played the film and You know understandably a lot didn't wanNA play and as a result and Sony you know AH incorrectly so they weren't going to force any theater to play it even those that had contractual obligations to do it and then it was just crazy thing where a few hundred independent theaters did play it and It was also released online simultaneously by a few companies that were willing to do that. Not many people ended up seeing results. So if that was Kim Jong UN's goal he was very successful at that. Most people didn't see the film and Sony was severely damaged by the hack. So you gotta give the wind North Korea here very sadly well. Let's talk about how Sony was damaged by the hack. You spent a lot of time. I'm looking through documents. Released in the hack for part of your research and your book the Big picture the fight for the future of movies. So what did it reveal about Sony. And how did it more important reveal. How the studio had kind of lost its way right? So the hacktivists released tons of you know from the top executives at the time as well as internal documents than really sensitive financial stuff and it revealed when it comes to the interview that they had had numerous discussions about something like this happening and didn't take it seriously really. There was a lot of conflict between the top executives at the studio and they weren't just having a lot of trouble coming up with major motion picture franchises that could compete with you know the marvels marvels and the fast and furious is of the world. It was really an amazing insight into a studio that was struggling to adapt to the modern movie business. Well I'm going to ask about marvel because one of the the most remarkable pieces of information in your book is how and why Sony Refuse to pay twenty five million dollars for almost all of Marvel superheroes in the late nineties. So what did that episode say. About how Hollywood is changing and how Sony really missed the future. Yeah Hollywood You know in the late nineties. Not Rule I- franchises. The way it is now is really ruled ruled by movie stars. So Sony thought. Well we've got Adam Sandler we've got will Smith. That's that's what really is valuable. You know we're not gonNA waste our money in the reserve. It was maybe spider-man's valuable but that that's all that's all they wanted. And of course Sony horrifically miscalculated and. There's there's a Lotta stuff in the hack about Sony's attempts to to fix that mistake including trying to revive the spiderman franchise a few years ago. I think it's fair to say that in the wake of the Sony Hack back a lot of studios and a lot of companies probably try to improve their firewalls and had better. It security but do you think there's a bigger less than about Hollywood. That might be remembered from the hack. Do you think it still has an impact on the business into people still talk and think about what happened to Sony people. You know people all the time reference Sony when they when they talk about. How much sensitive stuff should we say on an email? There's a sense that there's this knowledge not to censor knowledge that email is never truly secure. And if you're not necessarily they comfortable with the world knowing about it then you probably shouldn't put it in an email if you don't have something nice to say. Don't say it at all. I guess or at least eight on the phone Ben. Fritz is an editor At The Wall Street Journal and he is the author of the book. The big picture the fight for the future movies Ben. Thanks so much for coming back on the show. John was my pleasure

I know exact- say all those single gay men out there. This is a tolerant available yes with tildren so come help so then you know this is this is more important to me than holding out for a relationship which I would really like but hadn't happened up up to that point and then you just start having some conversations and you talk to some people that have done it and you work out what to do and you just take the first step and after the first step is the second step and two two years later last. December had twins you just make it seem so easy. When you are walking into the room with Robin you told her your children Bernard delightful so we're already so different life but when someone else is holding them cope a perfect distance from your own children and is about four feet because when they like when you're holding them you're in charge and you have to stop. Someone else is holding the so pretty yeah I still say. Kids are so perfect when they're sleeping. Aren't they tell us walk. I take Sony pictures of my kids when they're asleep because I'm like this little angel w then they're just angel but if it makes you feel so funny that you know now this process took so long and it was so hard and so expensive and then you're there with your kids and you're like how long is it until you leave the sacrifices surfaces in the decisions that you made for this and you're literally counting down the minutes until you can put them to bed. You're twenty minutes to yourself. Yeah you might squeeze in a whole episode of the office before you go to bed except for the morning because you're so tired so tired you waiting for those moments but you know what the testament to you. You actually still have the thought. Oh my God but remember how hard I have that about that at all anymore. We began talking about how you got so speaking this process because it was like you've you've alluded alluded to that. I really want to get into this business. We have a lot to unpack on so through your network has spoke to other people that had children in this nontraditional way with does your network with this friends who had friends so a lot of strangers with the first phone call would be hey. It's me so and so's friend. Let's talk about how you had two children and that was really like the first introduction a and you may all these wonderful people and I really learned two things I was. It's so hard to have children in any relationship society. Put so much pressure your own people and everyone has someone in their family who had difficulties and there's almost some sort of like or shame when you can't talk in this society just continues to news this ridiculous fallacy just like pregnant.

FM It in the heterosexual world it's even harder for them to talk about it absolutely my goodness but the second thing that everyone said was the agency's the people process which is why. I ended up having to because again almost unanimously people would say if you want to have to just do them both now because then you haven't got to go through this again and yes it's two instead of one and yes that's Hob. It's not twice as hard and then you'll ever know to write right and then a friend of mine said you know you can do diapers for four years or twice as many for two years. I'm nothing kind of guys like it isn't twice as hard. I don't think but as all ever known there's just there's certain times of the day where only one of me in two of them just means that all of our lives are going to be a little bit worse yeah.

If you've never read bats fantastic graphic graphic novel where he is an old man literally that cool we should also mention that marvel comics have been teasing a big event and with the major death of a character and have shown some body underneath a sheet <hes> vendors gathered around him and if you look back at the way fox fox operated with fantastic four x men marvel comics was sorta like well. Maybe we don't need these characters in the comics right now. Is it possible they're going to do with this parliament. I don't know but yeah well. That's certainly possible for me. Timothy charlemagne seems to be an inch would be an interesting choice to play spider man and more like independent pendant feel a nuance. It'll be fascinating see his approach to it and an old thirst is deep for timothy shalam that i've discovered with a lot of people in our a <hes> punditry as fear so he'd be interesting.

That's from brad pitt his new movie. Ad astra is coming out on september twentieth not a lotta huge going on for this one but one that i'm me myself as a fan of space movies and thoroughly excited to see this one from director james gray who's lost city of z. One is one of most recent isn't films of note but they released the studio released a clip from the film which is essentially brad pitt being chased down by space pirates. It's on the moon. That's right. You heard me space pirates on the moon. There's not no johnny depp with no wing and flag. It's more that they're all on those little vehicles with their astronaut turnout suits on going at it john apparently there's blaster fire laser blaster fire so this is certainly an interesting movie that has kind of this vibe of a more serious and important movie combined with these kind of outlandish <hes> laser blast fire space pirates. What do you think about this house. I'm really excited. Did i didn't know much about james. Gray win. Win los is ed came out and i really liked it and it has a really cool blend of sort of like poetic but it's not pretentious but there's action and they're on a jungle expedition and science fiction version of the same thing which i'm sold yeah yeah. What would you think of that watching the clip. I haven't seen the lost city of z. I've seen but i've seen the trailers for this and this and i feel like this movie's. He's going to probably be a lot more heady and more existential than probably how they're trying to push. I kinda flashing to when they did annihilation just a little bit oh yeah whereas like like who look exciting sci-fi thriller but wait this is kind of really mind boggling and it's a little bit difficult to keep their intentionally pushing like this clip because is there like no. We gotta show that. There's gonna be some exciting stuff in here and as the clip goes itself. I think the clip is awesome. Yeah i thought the sound design especially of it had because usually associate a- an action scene like that with a lot of noise and it's not just completely silent and it's not just completely muffled like emulating kind of the sounds of space. It seemed to have just it's the perfect blend of is a really great sound mixing overall. You can still feel like you're out in outer space when i sent me this article for it. I was like what the sound stupid stupid move sounds like cheesy campy and then you watch it. It's much more rounded approach and most realistic of takes. I imagine you could possibly do with. I think it looks really cool and i'm excited to check it out. There's probably going to be. I feel like it's going to be an movie. Yeah i mean that's what i was thinking. When you said i'm max i was thinking the look of it had a little bit of i man i i but certainly even the martian right. There's a lot of time time on mars in the martian and getting used to that environment so i think a lot of that bleeds over into this clip and into this feeling brad pitt doing his thing you know kinda the smooth food approach to the world and he has but it'll be interesting to see once it comes face to face with tommy lee jones who is his dad who he is going after to figure out it has also little bit apocalypse now vibe to it because apparently tommy lee jones has been out there for a while in space created his own community. Is he kind of kurtz in space based. I don't know you had a fan theory about tommy. Lee jones character. You're sharing with us before the show yeah that theory. Wouldn't it be funny if they've connected this to space cowboys because everybody knows it was timely. Jones was the last one left on the moon in space cowboys. Maybe this is a sequel to space cowboys. Wouldn't that blow your mind but i'm sure it isn't do. Ah did you think that this is possible with the film as well with breath like is there oscars around this thing silence. Is there a possibility here. I think absolutely i do think it's kind of a weird year for astronaut because we've seen like claire. Denise highlife came out and it's like arbor pattinson as an astronaut and we got loose you in the eye with diamonds is a natalie portman as an astronaut. There's mugabe's called astronaut that had <hes>. Why am i blanking. Watch the last week the one. I really watched the astronaut's wife last week.

"In the Sony Pictures animation's. I R rated movie. So Brad, you wrote the. Whole piece on plasma a link to this in the show notes. So people can actually go through and read sort of breakdowns, about all these different projects. But instead of breaking them down one by one just give me like the two that you're most interested in and why you think that's a significant thing for something pictures for me. I'm all about the two animated features from Jenny Tirona Kaczynski's into the because I think he is one of the most brilliant minds, working in animation, so that he's a delivered things that I loved in my childhood like Dexter laboratory. Cool projects that you're more into those, like, samurai, Jack. And he's got this unique visual sensibility. And he doesn't stay in one lane. He does a wide variety of things from comedies that are geared towards kids, you know, he's also responsible for hotel Transylvania, you know, too much more mature subject. Matter of samurai Jack is a very bloody action oriented series that is not meant for kids. And so seeing him do variety of animated projects is really exciting to me black knights. Seems like it's kind of in line with samurai Jack style. It's supposed to follow a highly skilled loyal Knight who after failing to practice. King must transform into the black night to save. His team says it involves ninja action. And then fixed is something completely different. It's a comedy about a dog who is in love with the show dog next door. And suddenly learns he's going to get neutered the next morning. So he decides to go out for one last night with his best friends before he loses his balls. So, you know that, that sounds like right in line with some of the comedies, Sony has done before that, especially after doing sausage party, which even though that was a Sony movie that was not a Sony Pictures, animation movie, interesting. Yeah. That was the sausage party was the first thing that came to mind there. I forgot that, that wasn't a Sony Pictures animation project. So, yeah, it's sort of interesting. I mean, especially with seemingly all of the other major studios, just staying in the lane of mostly using animation to create projects that are aimed at kids for Sony to be interested in sort of diversifying in this way. I hope it pays offer them because I feel like there's, there's a big opportunity there for creating tons of cool animated stuff. That is not just, you know, things that parents can take their kids to get out of the heat during the summer for a while. You know along with that, too. One of the other thing that Sony is doing is they're trying to diversify internationally, one of the things they're doing if they just recently teamed up with a ten. Sent which is a Chinese production company, and they're helping to produce their forthcoming movie that's called whisk dragon, which Jackie Chan is producing. And that's more along the lines of the traditional kind of family friendly animated fair. But apparently, that's supposed to be just the beginning of a big initiative to start working with a lot more international filmmakers in towns. Apparently that right now, they're developing projects with people from China Korea. India, Indonesia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Spain, France, Mexico Colombia and Brazil. So they're really trying to expand their appeals for as projects that are dismayed for American audiences. But for global audience interesting, okay? Have a has also seems like a big deal considering how laser focused a lot of these other animation studios are so off to keep an eye on that. In the meantime, let's talk a little bit about Russian doll. This is the Netflix show. When we talked earlier on the podcast about the pieces of entertainment that we have liked the most from twin. This was on my list this Netflix series. It's an eight episode show that starts in the tasha Leone. It is terrific. And I would highly encourage anybody to watch it. I'm not going to spoil the events of season one but yesterday afternoon season two was officially confirmed, and that is going to be going into production, sometime soon for Netflix. So we don't have a release date about win that's exactly gonna hit yet. I assume sometime in next year sometimes twenty twenty because I think the first season Russian doll came in February of this year..

And specifically it's sleuth -i hacking rations it is so this week. I've been looking into a particular group of North Korean hackers Burt before we dive into some of the details around that it's probably worth noting the North Korea. Even though we think of it as a country, which doesn't have a huge technical prowess. The country does actually have an it's higher levels and elite levels does have a lot of people that have a lot of access to. Technology, and this is something that's particularly growing in the area, and as part of this and as part of the country so of operations, it's well known of nations day hacking. So this is hacking sponsored by the government and this militaristic and aims of of the organization. So big that North Korea has been responsible for and this is a calling to such as governments the US UK of us intelligence agencies wanna grow the twenty seventeen run somewhere, which crippled large parts of the UK's NHS and businesses around the world and also the Sony Pictures hack after the movie the interview was produced in two thousand fourteen and then and then hackers belonging to North Korea. Got loads of Sony's daydream published confidential information about its future products, and what people were paid and lows. But probably what is lesser known is about the prolific actions or one of its group of hackers. So within the holes. Of North Korean hacking seen as it were. There is one eight eight eight PT, which is which stands for advanced persistent threat. Verty eight thirty of more than thirty of these groups around the world have their numbers. And this group has pretty much one main objective, and that's to hack financial institutions bring money back into North Korea. And this is very different to wanna cry which was seemingly aimless or it was trying to go off to targets. We're not really sure, but it didn't really have a target seemingly and the Sony Pictures, which was to embarrass Sony and hit back after the interview had a scene where the leader of North Korea's killed, right? It did. Yeah. It was a helicopter from a helicopter or something. Yeah. So they went off to Sony for that. Like you said, but what's different here is that North Korea is using its considerable hanging powers to raise money, and this is a country. That's under the strictest international sanctions. It's very difficult for it to get access to foreign capital. There restrictions on imports on trade on everything. So one way for North Korea to make money to hack it's way to profit. If you like, and it's a thirty eight. A primarily responsible for this. And the the group has been around since two thousand fourteen or at least weaken so of track back evidence of their work to and and they really going out to attack financial institutions around the world and going in cases of low hanging fruit. So they've been responsible for a number of cyber attacks that we can solve attribute to this group, and you can trace it back through. So if the digital evidence that they leave the types of outweigh that they use the Email addresses that they that belong to people and that narrative is so it's been known that they have been so of operated in Bangladesh, India, Mexico, Pakistan, the Philippines, South Korea. Taiwan Turkey and twice in both Chilean Vietnam in the loss of year. They've been responsible for stealing up to a billion dollars in financial transactions.

Are they're going to be survivors there to actually talk about what they have been through. So bishops and others really understand. What's happened here? You're absolutely right. Extremely important that the bishop's hear from survivors of abuse. In fact, pope Francis told them all before they came to wrong to actually meet with victims of the Pearson, their diet fish and listen to them. And I thought it was quite significant.

President Trump said that he had a quote good talk on the phone with Chinese president. She yesterday and Bloomberg news citing unnamed sources is reporting. The Trump has asked members of his cabinet to draw up a more concrete list of things the US wants from China to get negotiations moving. Now, there's no independent confirmation of this and some analysts remained skeptical at the same time. The administration is pledging to prosecute more Chinese companies accused of stealing intellectual property Thursday. The Justice department indicted, three former employees at the microchip maker Micron and some other companies for allegedly handing trade secrets to the Chinese. Marketplace's Ben Bradford has more Micron makes memory chips for electron IX, including smartphones. It relies heavily on Chinese manufacturers. But at the same time Chinese policy is to squeeze them out of the market Jim Lewis at the center for strategic and international studies. He says this is emblematic of the dilemma facing US tech companies. How do we work with Chinese companies in a way that doesn't end up selling them? The rope. We would use to hang ourselves. The Trump administration's brought answer includes the crackdown on intellectual property theft. But also tariffs limits on US. Tech exports to China and restrictions on visas for tech workers and students. The goal is really to disentangle the US economy from the Chinese economy. Susan shirk chairs the twenty-first century China center at UC, San Diego. She thinks strategy is too heavy handed tech companies are also conflicted. They want protection for their intellectual property while criticizing tariffs for disrupting their business. I'm Bradford for marketplace.

"So this virus would essentially take the data, take the websites associated with various organizations hostage and would demand a ransom. And a lot of these institutions actually did end up paying the ransom because they were desperate to get their data back. So North Korea's version of the CIA called the reconnaissance general bureau apparently also involved. And one of the things they did was they ripped off the Bangladeshi central Bank man. In a sense, a funny thing to do, but I guess since North Korea is a thuggish criminal country to begin with, I guess we shouldn't be surprised and they don't have a lot of money. So they literally hacked into the central Bank of Bangladesh and robbed them millions of dollars. Yeah. And so are we going to get our hands on park Jin yoke? Of course not. He's in North Korea, but this is our way of saying, we know was you to the North Korean government and we even trace it to this specific person. So we're onto you now would have been nice to be onto them ahead of time. And we seem to be constantly behind the North Korea's, the Russians, etc. So it gives you a sense of the depths of of of how bad the North Korean government is like they don't. They don't care. They don't care about their own citizens. They don't care about anybody else and petty. So that's no wonder truck. And Kim Jong Hoon get along so well because they hacked into Sony because they made a movie that made fun of them. Right. So so the interview was the movie that Sony Pictures was releasing and in the movie, there's an assassination, I believe of the North Korean dictator. And so, yeah, Kim Jong Hoon is like any other dictator, very thin-skinned ego maniac. He sees that doesn't like it and he gets his cronies to attack Sony, but I would argue, look, North Korea acting as a bad actor is unsurprising. We already knew that. I think the heart of this story and what I think a lot of people refused to focus on is how insanely vulnerable. The United States is to these types of cyberattacks because this wasn't just about Sony Pictures. It was about financial institutions. It was about banks. It was about hospitals. I mean, we really need to consider the cyber warfare that could be used against us in the future. Also what I find amazing. And this is yet another example of the lack of communication. The level of incompetence within the Trump administration according to the New York Times hours before the Justice department was set to act meaning before they announce these charges and all that stuff. President Trump seemed to praise North Korean leader, Kim Jong UN saying on Twitter that he proclaims unwavering faith in President Trump. Thank you to chairman, Kim, we will get it done together. What are you talking about? I mean, he's just he's so stupid. Look that tweet just proves all you need to do regardless of who you are and how terrible you've been to the United States. All you need to do is compliment Trump and he will do whatever you need them to do. Just support comes to the president says, we found the criminals who have been infiltrating the United States, and they didn't just attack Sony the attacks. So many different parts and parts of the damage. We don't know. Do you know that later too NS point about how vulnerable where the office of personal management in the US. Government was hacked into the White House. Email system was hacked into an IRS was hacked into, we don't know for sure that was the North Koreans. But this is obviously a very serious issue. And when the Justice department was asked by reporters, did you tell the president because it's curious that right before you release that he's like, oh, North Korea's are awesome, right? They said that it would just department said it was standard practice, the brief relevant parts of the executive branch. In other words, you of course, we told them and by the way, maybe that's why Trump tweeted that because he wanted to Kim Jong UN to know, hey, listen, don't worry. What about my stupid just department and they're stupid rule of law..

"And Is the, night the lights in Georgia I mean we could do, this all day wines from designing women. Much like the drug that, it was so? This. Show calling design you said initially no now I started, with, about fifty knows and then said wait, maybe you've got to know some details, but you're I. Got reaction is, no but I do but you know then I sat for a second and I thought to? Myself. Self what would, make a reboot okay And do you know what I decided, if original characters came back but it's going to be hard it's going to be a. Little. Difficult because there. Are some that have gone to the great beyond okay so for those of you who aren't familiar with the. Gosh classic, that is designing women that's a seven series run ran, from one thousand nine hundred eighty s. Until nineteen Ninety-three was one. Of the best, shows. On television it is sort of the to me it's, like, golden girls with attitude her right in, the south southern golden girls with attitude, okay here's the. Story the creator, of that show you may know is Linda blood worth Thomason and she is actually behind a? Revival Coming from Sony Sony Pictures television studios this project has been in the work for months As this in the studio apparently searches for a home for its revival of the, comedy. About four women and one man working together at an, interior design firm in Atlanta Georgia so that's what. We know that this is. A project, it's connected with the creator, of the, original series. We don't know anything else of course Dixie Carter Jean. Smart no Jean smart so alive Michelle Taylor and who else is delta Burke Annie pike I think it's just XY. Carter in Michelle Taylor had also Bernie's oh yeah I forgot about oh God anyway so we don't know if it's going, to involve any? Has said I would be all in. Because and here's where it's, sold me so we don't know yet if it's going to be a new cast. Some of the old cast a combination thereof we don't know. If it's. Going to be a limited series like long things are, going to be like, the Roseanne, reboot were they do we don't know any of that yet we can discuss all, that but. Here's what I think sold, me on the idea of designing women coming back it is the perfect moment to have loud women on television I agree and one of the, things. Any pot said was like this is the perfect you, know she's like we were doing the metoo movement. Every Monday night in the. Late eighties, early nineties And there is not a loud voice. Like that. On television for women today in the way that there, was back then I, think there's, also something to be said for that strong all female mostly I should say the, majority female Yeah except for the man he's the only non female but but there's something to be said about that kind of those loud strong female voices surrounded by loud strong female voices that it. Really, is such a female driven comedy And to me here was the selling point for, me That Linda bloodwork Thomasson is involved if she wasn't if this was sort of like. Somebody else's sort, of response to a recreation based on Yeah no this is literally when I go Murphy Brown kind. Of like Roseanne kind, of like full house you're. Gonna have again we don't know the, casting if there's going to be original casting it would be. Hard probably to recreate unless it's delta, Burke now you gotta remember that delta Burke Jean, smart left. That show not on good terms delta Burke I was. Just reading. Up. On, it in the break delta Burke Was talking. Out of, school about producers. And stuff, behind, the scenes and the cast essentially voted her, off the show off the island and then Jean smart. Left. Of her own accord and then they brought in remember I don't even remember I stopped. Watching, Julia Duffy which I my God I love Jan hooks character. But guess what she, can't come back because she. Also dad Julia Duffy she's around but, I don't you know anyway maybe she's working on a new. Heart reboot but I am excited at, the potential for this series mostly it just makes, me want. To go back and watch my old DVD's of designing, women yeah New stream that anyway I don't even know I don't. Know Yeah I you, know this, makes, me think. About you know like you. Said Roseanne Murphy Brown designing women I feel like there's this maybe TV is trying to remind us of who we once were like culturally because the world has changed so much in in the ensuing years that some. Of these reboots are. Really happening at just the right time so much has changed but really I think this is what might make some, of these reboots successful is that really not much has changed and that is because we are now revolving.

Door, not a witches like Quasimodo. Jon lovitz is a Quasimodo. I could argue Vlad of course, draft stabs, the tuba Kabre. Yeah, we were. We were like, who's this? Who creature? And then he was like, is there. Please. Yeah, he was kinda hot, what's okay. So. Context context. Let's dig into this thing. Sony Pictures animation has been this weird ramshackle right in the like post Pixar post DreamWorks every studio deciding like, oh, fuck. We need one of those. Sony and their animation departments always been this sort of like odd jalopy of effect. Because after the big Disney renaissance, everyone tried to do their own hindrance stuff. Okay. And like FOX doubling down with Don blue, these different studios, trying those things and they didn't fucking work. I've said this before. It's a crazy thing to think about the I do. You know what the first non Disney animated film make a hundred million dollars is. Pondering I- anesthesia, the Rugrats movie. All right, four, the Rugrats movie. No non Disney studio had really known cracked. Sure. Yeah. No, what I mean? The blue ones did. Okay. Doubles triples. I mean, that was like a big deal was when Disney was bombing, the Baluch movie started doing better. So it was like land before time did better than FOX in the hound. But it was still like low stakes to a certain degree right limb before time about fifty. Yeah, that adjusted. That's like a hundred. Yeah, but no one had really cracked it to that degree. Everyone had sort of given up. And then when Pixar took off and then DreamWorks very successfully start piggybacking off Pixar, they made that hard turn into CGI because DreamWorks was going to be handwriting. Studio is going to be Katzenberg trying to replicate what we had done at Disney than Evans said, oh, we can just fucking do they get some animals. They raised one eyebrow Cassar funny characters so far, we'll DreamWorks animation they have like ants most they have and then Shrek was like the. Huge breakthrough and they, they dance a very wealthy movie. And you see, if you think about it, the is called z. Yes, and it's like an z, like it's about him and also it's like, here's the title is ants with z and the move. You're going to see his aunts with z. right saying, and they made the prince of Egypt, right? Which which made a hundred dollars. That's it well, but that's what they thought they were going to do. They had this company who they were having produced like animated films for them. And I think that was like just a secondary kind of thing that was mostly just an ego, battle against Pixar, and those start really working. And then the other hand-drawn DreamWorks movies rotel Dorado Sinbad or bombing, heart spirit, spirit simmer right. A similar in stone. The spirit titan a e bombs really hard. Everyone's close up shots and spirit of the Cimarron. There's this thing that I find very interesting spirits. Talionis spirit similar to this Alliott Symon stallion of the spirit already. There's a thing I find very interesting which is that within a mission in the feature world, it feels like the die is cast by whatever the first thing is. Okay. So like Snow, White and the seven dwarves first big Americans weed gonna do a lot of fairy tale revivals decades. That was the notion. Juices. Sure. If another studio is going to make an animated film, that's what it's gonna be. It's gotta be a musical. It's gotta be a fairytale or at least some sort of folk tale or something..
