Delusional 'A-Team' Director Calls Studio Head a 'Dumb C**t' After Being Replaced on 'Potentially Oscar Winning' Remake

Many of you may be familiar with the work of Joe Carnahan, the director who wrote and directed the A-Team remake, as well as directed The Grey (great film) and Smokin’ Aces (fun film). He also has a temper, and may well be insane, evidenced by an email he sent to the head of MGM after Carnahan was replaced on the Death Wish remake, for which he had written the script.

You had a potential Oscar-winning film with maybe the best script in Hollywood but because you’re a coward and a dumb c*nt you now have an untested second-time director and an arrogant, lazy, aging action star that will run that poor kid into the ground. Good luck, asshole. You’re a spineless, gutless turd who doesn’t belong in this business. Enjoy your run as a `studio head,’ Glickman. It’s going to be a short one.

F*ck you,

Joe Carnahan

If you’re curious about who else Carnahan is calling out here, the second-rate director is Miss Bala’s Gerardo Naranjo, and the lazy, arrogant action star is Bruce Willis, though Willis is not officially signed on (he’s being courted).

There’s a lot of things to unpack in this email, but I think suggesting that the Death Wish remake is a potential Oscar winning film is all we really need to know to dismiss the mad ravings of lunatic director.

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)
