LOS ANGELES, Dec. 12 (UPI) -- A new leaked email from Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal shows that actor George Clooney predicted the Sony hacks in September.

In a correspondance dated Sept. 5, the actor writes Pascal about an upcoming project under the subject line: "knowing this email is being hacked" and goes on to slam those who are snooping, claiming he is "the son of a news man."

"How much fun are we gonna have...The stakes are higher than citizen kane... if we tell the truth in a compelling way... rupert [Murdoch] wont' get time/warner...cnn won't be fox... I'm so excited to do this film..," Clooney wrote, "and for those of you listening in ... i'm the son of a news man... everything will be double sourced.. so come on with with you lawsuits [expletive]"

The recent hack on Sony Pictures' computer network became public earlier this month when hackers released private information -- including the salaries and social security numbers -- of several celebrities and executives.

The latest development in the attack has been the release of multiple correspondences, most of which involve Pascal, where actors like Angelina Jolie and Adam Driver and public figures like President Barack Obama were insulted.

Pascal issued a public apology via Variety on Thursday in which she called the content of her emails "insensitive and inappropriate" and said it was "not a reflection" of who she is.
