'Twilight Saga: New Moon' script found in trash...and returned
What would you have done? Casey Ray, a beauty salon owner, found the scripts for two Robert Pattinson films — The Twilight Saga: New Moon and the romantic drama Memoirs, another Summit Entertainment production expected to film this summer — in a trash bin in St. Louis. (No one’s said how they ended up there. They were found outside a hotel housing actors working on the George Clooney movie Up in the Air. That cast includes Anna Kendrick, who plays Bella’s friend Jessica in the Twilight films, but her rep has insisted that the actress would not be so careless.) Though Ray considered leaking the scripts to the tabloid press, her lawyer tells the Associated Press that she didn’t really want money. So she returned them to the studio and was offered tickets to the movies’ premieres. She’ll also receive the scripts back after the films have hit theaters.
How would you have handled the find? Since I can’t even sit in someone else’s seat at a concert without getting nervous that I’ll be found out, I’m confident that I would have done the right thing as well and returned them — after I read them, of course. And took them to my editor.
