The plot of the fourth installment of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise nearly became public knowledge this week after a copy of the film's script was found in a London cafe. Johnny Depp began shooting "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides", his latest big-screen outing as Captain Jack Sparrow, in Hawaii in early June.
But the secrecy surrounding the film's storyline was nearly blown when movie workers accidentally left a copy of the screenplay behind after a breakfast meeting in the British capital, sending Disney studio executives into a panic. However, an embarrassing leak was prevented after a film fan found the 194-page document and handed it in to editors at Britain's The Sun newspaper.
And the unnamed good Samaritan refused to take a sneak peak at the script, telling the publication, "I'm a big fan of the films, but I managed to resist the urge to have a read. I want to enjoy the movie when it comes out." A Disney spokesperson says, "It's good to see Sun readers are honorable citizens."
