An early version of the "Twilight Saga: Eclipse" screenplay that belonged to star Jackson Rathbone leaked online on Tuesday. Sources reportedly confirmed to both Deadline Hollywood and EW.com that the PDF file making the rounds on the Internet is real, but it was not the version used to film the third movie in the vampire saga.
Summit has not provided any further information about the leak, how the script was lost in the first place or how anyone got their hands on the script, which is watermarked with Rathbone's name across each page. A rep for Rathbone hadn't gotten back to MTV News at press time regarding any further information about the found script.
According to the first page, posted on Zap2It.com's Dish Rag blog, this version of the script has the movie opening with Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard) turning Riley (Xavier Samuel) into a member of the vampire army she's raising in order to go after Bella (Kristen Stewart). "Eclipse" wrapped up shooting back in October and is currently in post-production before its June release.
This isn't the first time a copy of a "Twilight" script has been lost and then recovered. Last May, beauty-salon owner Casey Ray found a script for "New Moon" in the trash outside a hotel in St. Louis. Rather than profit from her discovery, Ray later returned it to the studio.
It was believed that "Twilight" star Anna Kendrick was the one who lost the script, since she was in St. Louis shooting "Up in the Air" and staying at the hotel where it was found. A rep for the actress said Kendrick would never leave scripts lying around for anyone to find.
