The cyber attack on Sony Pictures on November 24 has not even spared one James Bond.

According to the BBC, among several documents and five movies (four of them unreleased), the hackers also have in their possession, an early script of the next Bond flick, Spectre.

Shooting for the movie has already begun and the producers, Eon Entertainment released a statement confirming as much:

Eon Productions, the producers of the James Bond films, learned this morning that an early version of the screenplay for the new Bond film SPECTRE is amongst the material stolen and illegally made public by hackers who infiltrated the Sony Pictures Entertainment computer system.

The news comes in the wake of the attack by hackers on Sony Pictures, during which they downloaded terabytes of information from the systems at Sony.

The movies were uploaded on file-sharing platforms and several details of Sony employees, including salary statements were made public.

After the attack, the staff at Sony was reportedly forced to work on whiteboards. North Korea, while distancing itself from the attack, called it a “righteous deed”.
