In Wake of New Moon Script Leaks, Honesty is the Best Policy

From Associated Press:
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis beauty salon owner accidentally happened upon two of the hottest Hollywood scripts — the pages from the upcoming "Twilight" sequels.

Her decision to turn them over to the studio got her an invitation to the premieres.

Casey Ray spotted the scripts in a trash bin outside an upscale hotel where actors filming a different movie were staying. She considered leaking the scripts to a national tabloid, but decided against it.

Instead, her lawyer, Al Watkins, helped her return them to Summit Entertainment LLC, the studio making the movies.

Watkins says the studio invited Ray to premieres for the vampire films, "New Moon" and "Memoirs," and will certify the scripts as authentic after the movies are released.

There was no immediate comment from the studio.

  3. I'm with KC. I would have done the same thing after I read it too.

    Dang if I was going to the New Moon premiere I would have to starve my self for months, start shopping for a stunning dress, and start thinking of great things to say to my favorite stars.

  7. I'm trying to be all "good for her", but I'm a little too jealous for all that! I'm glad she turned them in though.

  10. (a) How did she "spot them" in a trash can???

    (b) I do wonder how they got there! Who could/would be so careless? And were they in St. Louis when this happened? If so, who was so careless should be easily traceable. They KNOW who they gave scripts to - - which of them was in St. Louis??

    (c) I would not have read them. I'm honestly not even tempted to search for the drafts/rumored script online. I read this blog all the time and feel like I'm "ruining" some of the surprise, but I can't help doing that much - - too many good stories I don't want to miss, ha ha.

    However, I really have NO desire to read the script or search for more - - I want SOMETHING left to enjoy in November! :)

  11. I just read on MSN that the scripts that were found were New Moon and Memoirs and that George Clooney is in town filming his movie or directing the movie called "Up in the air" which stars Anna Kendrick from Twilight, However, Her spokes person said " She would have never left them lying around ". Kinda strange to have new Moon and Memoirs just thrown into the the trash. Strange, And Who know how accurate MSN is.

  12. It's the new movie that Robert Pattinson is going to make I beleive during the break of New Moon before they begin filming Eclipse. There has been chatter about him signing on to do this movie.

  13. "Memoirs" is also known as "Remember Me". A story of a new found relationship that is threatened as they try to cope with family tragedy. It is being described as a modern day " "Love Story". At least this is what I have read about it.

  14. So, is it possible that Anna Kendrick was reading for the female lead in 'Memoirs?'

    Rob does enjoy licking her face. :)

    Hmmm . . .

  15. Yeah, That could be. I have a hard time picturing her playing that part, If she was to get it, But who knows. If it was her who left the scripts behind, I believe some of the websites are reporting it was her, I certainly would not want to be on the other end of the phone when she gets the call from Summit. Robert does enjoy licking her face, though, doesn't he!! Quite naughty actually.......LOL

  16. The original story came from a St. Louis source that said the woman, Casey Ray, called her lawyer and "reached a deal" with Summit to return the scripts. Now the story is she just returned them out of the goodness of her heart. I'm all for her doing the right thing but it sounds like she wasn't going to do it if Summit didn't give her all the things she wanted. Her lawyer said Ray agreed to return the scripts to Summit Entertainment if she was invited to the premieres for both films and the after-parties. After the films are released, she will receive the scripts that she found, certified by the studio for authenticity and signed by the writer and lead actor and actress. So I'm not exactly sure I want to give her a pat on the back because it sounded like the scripts were returned with conditions.

  17. Memoirs AND New Moon? Who apart from Rob Pattinson would be reading both of these? Although I haven't heard of him being in St Louis, so there's probably another explanation...

  18. who could possibly be so careless? Not Rob, I hope. It's a good thing that nice lady return them.

  19. I undertand the secrecy for the script for the other movie. But pretty much anyone who even cares to read the script of New Moon anyway. And it can't be (or shouldn't be) that much difference from the book. There's no doubt that if this lady's into Twilight that she read the script. There a difference between looking for it then reading it on a computer screen and actually having it in her hands. I know I couldn't resist:)But its likely she read it THEN turned it in. I would have done just that. Gosh why couldn't I have been the one to find such a treasure? :(

  20. I must be the only cynic *laugh* because I seriously wonder if they scripts were "found" or perhaps stolen. Seems a little odd that they'd just be sitting right out there in the open in a trash can, and who looks in trash cans regularly? Combined with the conditions for their return, to me it seems pretty fishy.

  21. Good for her. Im actually thankful, I would be sourly tempted to read them. But I'd much rather be surprised.

    Why does everyone in hollywood have a lawyer? She's a fricken hairdresser!

    I agree, a random chic. I wonder if this is true? Rob and co. would know better then to toss the script in the trash. I'm sure their supposed to return them or somthing.

  22. Good point random chic. I think I read somewhere that the lady's boyfriend works at the hotel. Wonder if he somehow stole them from someone staying at the hotel, like Anna Kendrick.

  23. My favorite comment on here was made by bella-mya. "It's the new movie that Robert Pattinson is going to make I beleive during the break of New Moon before they begin filming Eclipse. There has been chatter about him signing on to do this movie." she said. I love that they will be filming Eclipse. I can't wait for these up coming movies. Good for Ray for turning them in. She was at the right place at the right time.

  24. this sounds sooo fishy!!!!
    i mean those conditions!! the twilight premier!!! Seriously?? i have to admit that i would've returned it after reading it, but i would've also asked for something else like (not money) Wasn't she aware she had the NEW MOON SCRIPT, and she only asked for tickets to the premiere!! WHAT??? I am not sure if i believe this or no
