James Bond Movie 'Spectre' Script Stolen in Sony Hack

The script for the highly anticipated James Bond movie Spectre has been stolen in the massive hack of Sony Pictures.

Eon Productions and the producers behind the movie released a statement confirming that the script was stolen and warned any third parties who have received it that it is protected by copyright laws.

Here is the statement in full (via Variety): “Eon Productions, the producers of the James Bond films, learned this morning that an early version of the screenplay for the new Bond film Spectre is amongst the material stolen and illegally made public by hackers who infiltrated the Sony Pictures Entertainment computer system. Eon Productions is concerned that third parties who have received the stolen screenplay may seek to publish it or its contents. The screenplay for Spectre is the confidential information of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Danjaq, LLC, and is protected by the laws of copyright in the United Kingdom and around the world. It may not (in whole or in part) be published, reproduced, disseminated or otherwise utilized by anyone who obtains a copy of it. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Danjaq LLC will take all necessary steps to protect their rights against the persons who stole the screenplay, and against anyone who makes infringing uses of it or attempts to take commercial advantage of confidential property it knows to be stolen.”

Spectre was officially announced earlier this month at an event attended by the film’s star Daniel Craig and all the other cast members.
