The script for James Bond’s latest outing, SPECTRE, was nicked in the Sony hack.
Producers of the James Bond films said they learned on Saturday morning that an early version of the "SPECTRE" script was among material stolen and made public. "Eon Productions is concerned that third parties who have received the stolen screenplay may seek to publish it or its contents," Eon said in a statement.
The script is protected by UK copyright laws, but that will probably not stop the hackers who were last believed to be North Korean.
"SPECTRE," starring Daniel Craig as 007, is set for release on November 6, 2015. Filming began this month after producer Barbara Broccoli and director Sam Mendes unveiled the title, cast and new car. The Bond franchise is one of the most lucrative for Sony Pictures and the last installment "Skyfall" brought in $1.1 billion worldwide, more than any other Bond film.
Sony denied that the cyberattack forced the studio to stop production on films, including "SPECTRE."
