What a great soap opera plot, or even better, the beginning of a Coen brothers script.
Craggy, ancient studio head gives one of world's biggest stars the boot without consulting the most powerful director in Hollywood who just happens to head an arm of Craggy's studio.
Sounds like something from The Player, but it's really happening.
And then, perhaps to increase the surreality of this situation, somebody asks Jerry Bruckheimer his opinion. Why, may I ask? He said it wasn't what he would dof. And if his political smarts match his movie making skills, then Craggy did the right thing.
