Twilight Studio Taking Legal Action Over Leaked Pics
Summit Entertainment alleges a group in Argentina stole the snaps...
Our US Team interviewed R-Pattz shortly after the incident, who expressed his anger over the stolen pics stating: "It's just ridiculous. I literally can't believe that it happened,"
"I want the Twilight troops to mobilize, all the good fans, and find out who these little sh**s are and just hack into their computers and destroy them. ... I'm being genuinely serious, Twilight fans."
The hunky actor added: "It's raw footage; it's not even what people are going to see," he said "Why do this maliciously? You're not a fan. You're just a di***."
Now, it seems Pattinson's wish has come true as Summit claims that group in Argentina are responsible for leaking the images but since there may be more people involved, the investigation is still ongoing.
Specifically, Summit is identifying Daiana Santia as allegedly being involved in the group that stole the images and footage. Civil action has been filed in the U.S. and Argentina, while criminal action has also been filed in Argentina.
Summit have hired law firm Keats McFarland & Wilson LLP to search four continents (North America, South America, Europe and Australia) to find the people behind what director Bill Condon called a "deeply upsetting" experience.
Summit Executive Vice President David C. Friedman released a statement in the press release about the situation, saying that a strong fan community should not result in property theft.
He stated: "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 by the filmmaker and dedicated cast and crew to have these images out and available on the Internet."
