Film developers say the likelihood of finding scripts tossed out with the garbage is slim to none.
Wired PR News – The discovery of two scripts for the upcoming film New Moon (a sequel to the blockbuster hit Twilight) was a shocker to many who believed that such items were kept confidential until after a film’s release. As reported by E! Online, such findings are not typical despite a lack of extreme measures to prevent them from being leaked beyond the set.
Katherine Brodsky, a script reader, is quoted in the report as stating, “The reason that the New Moon script being found in a trash outside a hotel made so many headlines is because it is so unusual… While not all scripts are guarded tightly and kept under lock and key attached to Ninja warriors, they are not usually just tossed around with no disregard.” Brodsky is further quoted to say, “for many projects, it’s not the end of the world. But for highly anticipated, well-publicized projects, I imagine it would be a serious cause of stress and premature gray hairs.”
