'Twilight Saga: New Moon' script found in trash...and returned

Pattinsonnewmoon_lWhat 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.

    I’m a nerd, too–I would have returned them (after I read them of course!) But still, this whole situation seems rather strange….

  • Michelle

    I would have returned them too. (After reading them, of course!) But the whole sitch is soooo odd. St. Louis? Really? That’s 2/3 of a continent away!

  • Deb

    I would have returned them…it is the honest thing to do but I would have read them first; after all honest or not I am only human.

  • Bosephus5000

    I would have left them in the trash…where they belonged.

  • Melissa

    I would have kept them, but never told anyone about them until the movie was out. And I still would have kept them and tried to get then autographed. I would not have tried to sell them or make money off of them. I would have added them to my autograph collection.

    I would have read them and then happily returned them to the studio. Why doesn’t this stuff ever happen to me?

      They are worth it. I know I have read my books over and over and over again. Well worth the money spent. It took me about 3 days per book. But then again I had to go to work and since at the time I was on the phone all day I didn’t get the chance to read duinrg work. Otherwise it was hard to put them down. Midnight sun has not been finished and she is not sure if she will or not. However, you can go to Stephanie Myers website and read the first 264 pages there. Midnight Sun is the same as Twilight just in Edwards point of view instead of Bella’s. But it gives you some more insight.

    You know, I can’t say that I’d have returned them .. I think I would probably have taken them home and squirreled them away somewhere safe. But, I CAN say for certain that I would NOT have sold them or “leaked” them in any way.

    How big could the spoilers be for New Moon? The book’s been out for years! I’d ebay ‘em, for sure!

    • Sarah

      so true!

    If I’m in a place in my life where I’m finding things in the trash, I’m definitely cashing in on an abandoned script for a highly guarded movie. Ka-ching!

  • Cory

    While I would not have leaked them, I probably would have kept them.

  • Mike

    I guess I’ll be the first to admit I’d at least get a quote from an outlet willing to pay me for them. Money doesn’t grow on trees, man. Of course, I’d possibly chicken out after that and just return them honestly.
