Lovely Bones Script Leaked

The various copies of Peter Jackson's Lovely Bones script, co-written with Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, were each supposed to stay strictly in the hands of only the very specific studio execs they were meant for. Somewhere along the line, however, at least one copy started to stray.

Now Jackson is threatening legal action, once again. Each script can be identified by a single key word hidden somewhere, a tiny change from the other copies and this will be used to identify the leak. This code-wording is quite common practice, I believe.

I'd love to read the Lovely Bones script - though not nearly as much as I'd like to see the finished film. The pages for Michael Mann's next have started wandering too, but frankly, I could care less about that one. John Logan? No thanks.
