Rumored ‘Eclipse’ Script Leaks

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- A possible “Eclipse” script has leaked.
Though the third film in “The Twilight Saga” isn’t due until June, what appears to be a version of its screenplay – watermarked with cast member Jackson Rathbone’s name – hit the Internet this week.
According to Entertainment Weekly, a source close to Summit Entertainment called the script an early draft – not the final shooting script.
Summit reps did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Access Hollywood.
If the script is indeed the real deal, it wouldn’t be the first time a “Twilight Saga” script had leaked — a “New Moon” draft hit the Internet in May 2009 and another copy was found in a trash can in St. Louis. The woman who found the script in the trash, returned it and another one she found for “Memoirs” to their respective studios.
“Up in the Air” was filming in St. Louis at the time with Anna Kendrick, a star of that film and “The Twilight Saga.” Her rep told the Associated Press at the time that she would not have left scripts lying around.
Rathbone plays Jasper Hale, a vampire and classmate of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) in the series. His role greatly expands in “Eclipse.”
The most recent film in the series, “New Moon,” earned almost $300 million domestically after its November release, including a whopping $142 million opening weekend.
