Key to Reserva, a Movie From Scorsese/Hitchcock

0
What would happen if acclaimed film director Martin Scorsese [imdb] got a script by Alfred Hitchcock [imdb] that was never made into a movie? Can Scorsese make the film like Hitchcock would've made it? There's a catch: the script has a missing page ...

This Christmas, Freixenet wine sponsored "Key to Reserva," an ad campaign unlike any other. Movie lovers, follow the link: Link

This unfinished movie script of Hitchcock has been rumoured to exist for many years. I remember first hearing about it when I was a student in the London School of Film Technique many years ago. We tried to find out what the plans were but without success even though we were once transferred to a production office in Hollywood by phone to some guy 'doing the research' on it! That was subsequently denied by Head Office - normal Hollywood secrecy rules about projected movies - and the guy in question vanished. Very Hitchcockian in itself.
So why don't you all write to the Freixenet - Reserva - Pimecava company at: news@decanter.com, and ask them to ask Scorsese to make the movie. I already did.

The Utne Reader posted an interesting blog about "Scorsese's Hitchcock" that covers some more of the references and also the manuscript claim:

I'm guessing it's a goof - the names and homages are too spot-on to be otherwise. And Ted Griffin (the s reenwriter of Ocean's Eleven) is named as a "creative consultant", which would be a nice cover if (as I suspect) he wrote it.

But one thing's for sure, it's one of the best goofs I've ever seen.

But my question is, is it legitimately taken from an unfinished Hitchcock script or was that a goof and it's Scorsese doing an homage to Hitchcock for a commercial?
