Finally we found an article that pretty much pulls all the facts as they are known together. On Tuesday an early copy of the Eclipse script, as reported by Deadline Hollywood and EW, made it online in the early evening. Many of the links have now been removed as Summit Entertainment has apparently enforced its intellectual property rights.
In the last day, we’ve seen a lot of rumor going around most notably that this will mean Jackson will be fired. In our opinion, if they didn’t fire Anna Kendrick for a New Moon script being found in the trash of the hotel in St. Louis where she was staying (and yes we realize her rep denies she did that), they aren’t going to fire Jackson.
Unlike the New Moon script that was an actual hard copy that was found at an actual physical location where Anna Kendrick was staying during her Up In the Air shoot, this Eclipse script (watermarked with Jackson’s name on it) which is not the final version) was scanned and put online. It could have been obtained from several places from Jackson himself, to agents, to even Summit, to a computer hack. So since no one provably scooped it out of Jackson’s trash, it’s hard to say exactly where it came from.
