The world came this close to getting an early look at the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows script: A copy was found abandoned under a table in the pub that the film's crew did some serious drinking at on Thursday night. But the eagle-eyed individual who found the script instead chose to give it to the Sun, which in turn returned it to a grateful Warner Bros—but not without mentioning that it features "several dramatic changes" from the book.

The Sun won’t reveal anything about the script, except to say that it makes “several dramatic changes” from the book. The studio has launched an investigation into how the script could have been lost, but it doesn’t seem like much of a mystery. Sources say the film’s crew was out celebrating a productive day of filming, and had a whole lot to drink. (More Harry Potter stories.)
