Salon owner saves next “Twilight” movie from the light

May 12, 2009

 A beauty salon owner in St. Louis, Missouri, has helped filmmakers behind the upcoming vampire romance ”New Moon” avert a fiasco by returning a script for the film, a sequel to last year’s blockbuster hit “Twilight,” a source close to the studio behind the movie said on Tuesday.


 Casey Ray reportedly found the script in the rubbish bin. But rather than sell it to a celebrity news outlet thirsty to suck out details on independent studio Summit Entertainment’s “New Moon,” Ray gave the script back to the filmmakers and in exchange, she will get a pair of tickets to the premiere of the movie, which opens on Nov. 20,  a sources close to the stduio behind the movie said.

 It’s debatable how much a “New Moon” script made available to the masses would reveal about the movie, since the franchise is based on the bestselling “Twilight” book series from author Stephenie Meyer, and the book “New Moon” has already been read by millions.

But there’s no doubt that an appetite exists. The latest issue of OK! Magazine features “New Moon” stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart on the cover, with the headline “Secrets from the set.” The magazine promises to reveal what “exotic locales” the film’s stars travel to and who they’re dating.

 The source close to Summit said it’s still unclear how the script got out there. How much is at stake for the studio in the sequel?  After its Nov. 21, 2008, release “Twilight” made $380 million at worldwide box offices.  

What would you have done if you found the ”New Moon” script? Would you sell it or return it? Or would you leave it in the trash bin where you found it?


Hi, Love the movie Twilight, And Kristen you and Robert are great together.This is my all time favorite movie. Robert said you were a drug to him, Well this movie is a drug to me I can not stop watching it. Everybody did a great job. Cannot wait for the next sequel.Thanks,Pat


Oh I definately would have returned it. I have to admit I would have read it first but no amount of money could make me leak anything twilight. I was so upset when Stephanie Meyer chose not to finish Edwards account of Twilight (it was soooo good)! I would hate for them to shut down production or something….not that they would, but just in case.

Oh I would certainly have read it, but there’s no way I would’ve sold it. There’d be more chance of receiving a gesture of somesort from Summit – and to me, that’d be worth more than any money I could get for it.
