Will theft of Samuel L. Jackson’s script force Avengers rewrites?

Sam Jacks Avengers Script went bye  byeSomeone—presumably not the Red Skull—has managed to get his hands on Samuel L. Jackson’s copy of the Avengers script. And not only that, but the anonymous thief has been contacting various entertainment sites and offering to sell the script to the highest bidder.

Pictures of some of the script pages have already popped up in the wild, but, as of yet, there haven’t been any takers.

The big question is, just how serious are the consequences of the leak? According to Film Fan Review, production on the film has already been halted in order to make changes to the story. There’s still some skepticism out there, though, as to whether such a costly move is really necessary.
