‘Breaking Dawn’ Hacker Sued by Summit Entertainment

The producers of Twilight is suing a hacker from Argentina for leaking unfinished footage from the upcoming movie "Twilight: Breaking Dawn."

Daiana Santia, an Argentine hacker, is now in trouble after releasing images and unfinished footage from the film “Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1,” Summit Entertainment said in a press release.

Earlier this year, the company urged users to avoid viewing or passing on images of Bella and Edward in bed because it did not come from them.

The press release states that:

“Civil actions in the United States and Argentina name Daiana Santia, along with others, as being involved in stealing photographs, unfinished images and video from both parts of the yet to be released The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn which first appeared on the internet of March 31 of this year.”

David C. Friedman, Executive Vice President and General Counsel of Summit Entertainment has this to say about the issue:

“While we very much appreciate the legions of committed fans of the franchise and encourage them to create community online, we cannot ignore that property was stolen. It is not fair to the majority of fans that want to see the final chapter of The Twilight Saga film franchise fully realized the filmmaker and dedicated cast and crew to have these images out and available on the internet.”

“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1” will hit theaters worldwide beginning Nov. 18, 2011.
