The reason: When a script does need to be shared, studios and producers typically use digital tools to ensure they can catch anyone who leaks or loses an emailed copyand make them as unwelcome in Hollywood as a star coming off his third flop in a row. “There is no way if one of our scripts got out that we would not know who it was from,” said Jon Landau, the producer of 2009’s all-time box-office record holder “Avatar.” One common practice is a digital watermark on a PDF of a script, which typically contains the name of the person to whom it was given and shows up when it is scanned or copied. DreamWorks SKG regularly does so because screenplays are “blueprints” for the final film, said the independent studio’s chief executive Stacey Snider. “They evolve while they’re being shot and we hate to have people think they are getting the whole picture.” But the script for DreamWorks’ movie “The Fifth Estate” about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, which comes out Friday, was posted on the WikiLeaks website last month and no watermark was evident. A spokesman for WikiLeaks didn’t respond to a request for comment. But the organization said on its website that it received “multiple versions of the script for ‘The Fifth Estate’ from several different sources.” Legendary Pictures LLC, the company behind this summer’s monster movie “Pacific Rim” and a coming film adaptation of the hit videogame “Warcraft,” makes anyone authorized to read one of its scripts purchase a special iPad app that allows them to view it for a only few hours before the digital document, like a “Mission Impossible” assignment, self-destructs. Actors on director Neill Blomkamp’s August science-fiction movie “Elysium” were given iPads with the screenplay preloaded and built-in security so they couldn’t get files off the tablet. Even adaptations of best-selling books whose plots are free to read at a library can be considered highly valuable. Every copy of the screenplays to Lions Gate Entertainment Corp.’s adaptations of the “Hunger Games” trilogy has a few different words changed. If the script appears online, executives at the studio need only check a database tracking the changes to find out whose copy was leaked and ensure that they’ll never be invited to the postapocalyptic world of Panem again. As far back as the 1980s, filmmakers occasionally used code names around certain high-profile movies.
