The Avengers Script Extortionist is Back
As reported by Josh, yesterday several movie sites including CBM were emailed by a "XXXBobSmith" who wanted money for a supposed copy of the The Avengers script. Here are the emails and pics we recieved...
Here's what the first email yesterday said...
I've come into possession of an advanced copy of a script called "Group Hug" which when released will be titled "THE AVENGERS". It is a pink draft of the shooting script dated 04/08/11. The pages bear the Marvel Studios letterhead and all 129 pages are watermarked with one of the starring actor's name. Also included is a personal note from writer/director Joss Whedon. If this is something that you would like to procure, contact me and we can negotiate terms. Verification can be provided if interested.
And today's email included pics...
I’ve attached 2 photos of the Group Hug script for verification purposes. I trust this to be sufficient, however if further proof is required a photo of a specific page can be sent at your request.
I have one hard copy that I am looking to sell and I will not be making any copies, therefore exclusivity is guaranteed.
Considering that the release of The Avengers is over a year away this script should generate a substantial amount of traffic for the website that acquires it. So let the bidding begin...
Click on the pics to view (and read) the tantalizing details of Hulk, Black Widow, and Iron Man involved with some kind of disaster upon an aircraft carrier....
In all likelihood this is a faker trying to make a quick buck, but even it its legit, it will be leaked eventually anyway. So, why pay for it?
