INT. RUINED CITY SKYLINE - DAY
                                                            
WE LOOK OVER THE ďSKYLINEĒ OF A CITY THAT IS WRECKED AND
RUINED. A GRITTY BROWN MIST COVERS THE ENTIRE SCENE.
BUILDINGS ARE FALLING APART AND THERE ARE NO STRUCTURES THAT
STAND VERY TALL. THE CAMERA SLOWLY LOWERS TO GROUND LEVEL
AND BEGINS FOLLOWING A MAN THAT IS WALKING DOWN THE MIDDLE
OF THE STREET WHERE NO CARS ARE TRAVELING. THE CAMERA STAYS
SEVERAL FEET BEHIND THIS MAN AS HE CONTINUES TO WALK. THE
STREET IS FAIRLY BUSY WITH OTHER PEOPLE WALKING AROUND. THE

2.

MAN IS WEARING A TORN BLACK LEATHER JACKET AND OLD WORN BLUE
JEANS. HE IS ALSO WEARING BROWN BOOTS THAT ARE ALSO IN POOR
CONDITION. HE IS CLUTCHING A SMALL WAD OF BILLS IN HIS LEFT
HAND. AS HE WALKS HE LOOKS SIDE TO SIDE ON EITHER SIDE OF
THE STREET. AFTER A MINUET OR TWO THE MAN STOPS BUT THE
CAMERA CONTINUES TO MOVE AND WITHIN THREE FEET OF THE MAN IT
MOVES AROUND HIM WHILE STILL KEEPING HIM IN VIEW. IT MOVES
AROUND TO SHOW HIS FRONT SIDE AND WE GET THE FIRST LOOK AT
JON STOOVE. AS HE STANDS THERE HE CONTINUES TO LOOK LEFT TO
RIGHT WHILE HE TRIES TO DECIDE WHICH WAY TO GO. HE CHOOSES
TO GO LEFT AND THE CAMERA FOLLOWS BEHIND HIM AS HE WALKS
SLOWLY TO A BUILDING WITH A NEON SIGN THAT SAYS RUINED CITY
BAR. HE WALKS SLOWLY TO THE BUILDING WITH NO DOOR AND AN
OLDER MAN STUMBLES OUT OF THE DOORWAY AND FALLS TO HIS KNEES
WHERE HE IMMEDIATELY VOMITS. JON STOPS AND LOOKS AT THE MAN
ON HIS KNEES COUGHING AND TURNS AROUND AND WALKS ACROSS THE
STREET TO A BUILDING THAT HAS A RUSTED SIGNS THAT IS FALLING
APART THAT SAYS BAD CITY BAR. WE SEE JON SIT AT THE BAR AND
SURVEY THE ROOM. THE BARTENDER WALKS UP TO JON.
                                                            
                       BARTENDER
What can I get for ya?
                                                            
                       JON
      (lifts and lowers
       money)
However much I can get for fifteen
dollars.
                                                            
THE BARTENDER TURNS AROUND AND WALKS OUT OF VIEW.
JON LIGHTLY TAPS HIS FINGERS ON THE COUNTER AS WE HAVE A
VIEW OF HIS HANDS. THE CAMERA PULLS BACK A LITTLE FURTHER
AND WE SEE A PENNY A FEW INCHES FROM HIS FINGER MOVING AS IF
SOMEONE IS HITTING THE COUNTER. JON STOPS TAPPING HIS
FINGERS AND REACHES FOR THE PENNY AS HE REACHES THE PENNY
STOPS MOVING BUT HE PAYS NO ATTENTION AND GRABS IT PLACING
IT IN HIS POCKET.
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (off camera)
Where you from?
                                                            
JON BEGINS TAPPING AGAIN IGNORING THE VOICE.
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (irritated)
Hey son, I asked you where you
were from.
                                                            
JON LOOKS UP FROM HIS HANDS AND AT THE MAN. WE GET OUR FIRST
LOOK AT SMITH. HE IS WEARING ALL BLACK AND HIS CLOTHES
UNLIKE EVERYONE ELSEíS ARE NOT RUINED AND WORN.
                                                            

3.

                       JON
Not from around here, sir.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Then where?
                                                            
                       JON
Iím not sure, I donít have a home
like most people, of course.
                                                            
                       SMITH
You're poor then?
                                                            
                       JON
      (a slight smile)
Yes, as bad as it sounds Iím
spending all the money I just made
on a single damn meal.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Oh, I understand. Itís not worth
saving money in this world anyway.
                                                            
                       JON
      (lifts hand for a
       shake)
I'm Jon.
                                                            
SMITH HANDS JON A SMALL BUSINESS CARD THAT APPEARS BLANK.
JON LOOKS DOWN AT THE BUSINESS CARD THEN BACK AT SMITH.
                                                            
                       SMITH
And I (beat) run a business.
                                                            
JON LOOKS AT SMITH CONFUSED.
                                                            
                       SMITH
You donít see the news much do you
boy?
                                                            
                       JON
No not really. Actually I havenít
had the chance to pick up a
newspaper in years. As if they
still print those.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Oh they do, on occasion. Look, if
you really want to change your
life, I suggest you keep that
card.
                                                            
SMITH STANDS UP AND BEGINS TO HEAD OUT THE DOOR.
                                                            

4.

                       SMITH
      (still walking)
If you decide to show up, of
course.
                                                            
SMITH TURNS AROUND AND WALKS OUT THE DOOR. JON SHAKES HIS
HEAD AND PUTS THE CARD IN HIS JACKET POCKET.
                                                            
FADE OUT
                                                            
 
INT. SAM'S SHACK - DAY
                                                            
WE SEE A ROTTING WOODEN DOOR AND IT OPENS FROM THE OTHER
SIDE AND JON STEPS INTO A SMALL ROOM WITH TWO MATTRESSES ON
THE FLOOR, A RUSTED COAL BURNING STOVE AND A SMALL CLOSET IN
THE BACK WALL THAT HAS SOME CARDBOARD BOXES IN IT. SITTING
ON A SMALL WOODEN STOOL IN FRONT OF THE LIT STOVE POKING A
STICK AT THE COAL IS SAM.
                                                            
                       SAM
      (looking at the
       fire)
Glad you could finally make it
Jon.
                                                            
                       JON
Good to see you to Sam my man.
                                                            
JON CLOSES THE DOOR AS HE WALKS IN AND SITS ON THE DIRTY
MATTRESS.
                                                            
                       SAM
Any luck finding a job in this
shitty town?
                                                            
                       JON
Not in this town. I swear, every
job that is offered here has
something to do with cleaning shit
up. But thereís a problem, this
whole world needs to be cleaned up
and there isnít enough people to
do it.
                                                            
                       SAM
Good thing you mentioned that. I
need to get to work.
                                                            
SAM GETS UP OFF HIS STOOL AND GRABS SOME THINGS FROM THE
BOXES IN THE CLOSET AND PUTS THEM IN A DUFFEL BAG.
                                                            

5.

                       SAM
My job may be disgusting and low
but, shit, we need to do whatever
we can to survive here. Whoís mess
is this anywayÖ?
                                                            
AM TRAILS OFF AND WALKS OUT OF THE SHACK. JON FALLS BACK
ONTO THE MATTRESS AND CLOSES HIS EYES.
                                                            
 
INT. LARGE EXTREMELY DARK ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
FOUR FIGURES IN A ROOM. ONE STANDS IN FRONT OF A LARGE
WINDOW HIDDEN BY A SHADOW. THREE OTHER MEN IN SUITS STAND
BEHIND HIM.
HIDDEN MAN IS SMITH. ROOM IS EXTREMELY DARK.
                                                            
                       SMITH
I saw it I know I did. But I donít
think he did, which may be a
bigger problem.
                                                            
                       MAN IN SUIT #1
It was a penny right?
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (yelling)
Why the hell does that matter? You
think Iím concerned with little
details like that? This man is top
priority. Over all the others, at
least for now.
                                                            
                       MAN IN SUIT #2
I got down that his name is Jon
but is there anything else you can
tell us, sir?
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (sighs)
                                                            
                       MAN IN SUIT #3
Donít worry about it, I found some
records for once. We got a pretty
good amount of information about
mister Stoove.
                                                            
MAN IN SUIT #3 SETS THE FOLDER ON THE TABLE NEXT TO HIM.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Thatís all fine, you men can go
home now, I donít need you hear
anymore tonight.
                                                            

6.

THE THREE MEN BEGIN TO LEAVE.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Make sure you are all here
tomorrow. (beat) I feel he will be
on his way soon.
                                                            
A CLOSE UP OF SMITHíS FACE WHILE HE IS SHOWING AN EVIL GRIN.
                                                            
 
INT. SAM'S SHACK - DAY
                                                            
A SLOW PAN OF THE SHACK WHERE JON IS SLEEPING. LIGHT PEAKS
TROUGH THE CRACKS IN THE BOARDS THAT MAKE UP THE ROOM. THE
NOISE OF A TRUCK DRIVING BY WAKES JON UP. HE SITS UP AND
RUBS THE BACK OF HIS HEAD. HE STAND UP AND PUTS HIS JACKET
ON AND SEARCHES THROUGH ALL THE POCKETS LOOKING FOR
SOMETHING. JON WALKS OVER TO THE CLOSET AND ALMOST TRIPS
OVER THE SLEEPING SAM. HE LOOKS THROUGH THE BOXES AND FINDS
NOTHING. AS HE BEGINS TO WALK TO THE DOOR HE LOOKS DOWN AND
SEES THE BUSINESS CARD LYING ON THE FLOOR. HE PICKS IT UP
AND FLIPS IT OVER TO REVEAL WRITING ON THE BACKSIDE.
                                                            
THE CARD READS:
                                                            
Help wanted. Will be well paid. 563 West 34th street room
405.
                                                            
JON SMILES AND WALKS OUT OF THE SHACK WHILE PUTTING THE CARD
BACK INTO HIS JACKET POCKET.
                                                            
 
INT. OUTSIDE APARTMENT BUILDING - DAY
                                                            
CAMERA LOOKING FROM STREET LEVEL UP AT AN OLD APARTMENT
BUILDING. JON WALKS INTO VIEW AND STOPS. HE LOOKS AT THE
CARD AND THEN AT THE ADDRESS ON THE SIDE OF THE BUILDING. HE
PUTS THE CARD IN HIS POCKET AND WALKS INSIDE THE FRONT DOOR.
                                                            
INT. APARTMENT BUILDING LOBBY
                                                            
JON FINDS HIMSELF IN THE LOBBY OF THE APARTMENT BUILDING AND
HE DOESNíT SEE ANYONE ELSE. HE BEGINS TO CLIMB THE STAIRS.
JON REACHING THE TOP OF THE STAIRCASE AND WALKS UP TO A
LARGE SET OF DOUBLE DOORS. THERE IS A MAN DRESSED IN A
MILITARY UNIFORM IN FRONT OF THE DOOR.
                                                            
                       SOLDIER
      (reaching for gun)
What do you want?
                                                            

7.

                       JON
      (nervous)
Uh, I was given this card and-
                                                            
                       SOLDIER
      (looks around and
       stops reaching
       for his gun)
Go on in.
                                                            
THE SOLDIER OPENS THE DOOR AND CLOSES IT AS SOON AS JON
ENTERS.
JON WALKS INTO A ROOM WHERE SMITH AND THE THREE MEN IN SUITS
ARE TALKING. SMITH IS HOLDING THE FILE THAT WAS LEFT ON THE
TABLE THE NIGHT BEFORE. SMITH PAUSES WHEN HE TURNS AND SEES
JON STANDING THERE.
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (smiling)
Mister Stoove! I am surprised to
see that you actually showed up!
                                                            
                       JON
      (smiling back)
Youíre offering money, why are you
surprised?
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (motioning to the
       three men in
       suits)
Oh, I donít know. We do seem like
a strange bunch now donít we?
                                                            
                       JON
      (points to folder
       smith is holding)
How did you know my full name? Is
that?
                                                            
                       SMITH
Yes it is your official record. I
work with a government
organization so you can expect us
to have everyoneís file, correct?
                                                            
                       JON
Of course! Now, the job? Itís
still available isnít it?
                                                            
SMITH TOSSES THE FOLDER ONTO THE TABLE AND SITS DOWN ON A
TORN COUCH IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROOM. JON WALKS OVER AND

8.

SITS ON THE OPPOSITE COUCH ACROSS THE COFFEE TABLE IN THE
MIDDLE. THE FURNITURE IS ON TOP OF A RUG AND THE REST OF THE
FLOOR IS BARE BOARDS. SMITH LOOKS OVER AT THE THREE MEN IN
SUITS.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Excuse us please.
                                                            
THE THREE MEN IN SUITS IMMEDIATELY SET DOWN ANY PAPERWORK
THEY ARE HOLDING AND LEAVE THE ROOM.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Do you really know why you are
here mister Stoove?
                                                            
                       JON
Iím looking for work right? At
least thatís what your card said.
You have a job for me?
                                                            
                       SMITH
Sort of. Iím sorry I havenít
properly introduced myself to you.
Iím (beat) Jack Smith. I work with
a government organization that is
trying to put an end to this word
wide poverty that we seem to be
suffering from. And I plan on
paying you. I plan on paying you
well.
                                                            
SMITH SMILES.
                                                            
                       JON
How well are we talking here? I
mean very little money can buy
quite a bit of-
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (quickly)
How does five million dollars
sound?
                                                            
WE SEE JON WITH A STUNNED LOOK OF DISBELIEF ON HIS FACE.
                                                            
                       SMITH
This world is wrecked and ruined.
We now know that there is almost
nothing that can get it back on
itís feet. So in recent years we
have decided to go to more extreme
methods. Paying people like you
massive amounts of money can have
major benefits on the economy.
                                                            

9.

                       JON
How so?
                                                            
                       SMITH
Face it Jon. Most of the world is
poor with the exception of the
world leaders and a few lucky
citizens. We pay someone in your
position five million and they buy
a house and restart their life.
This new wealthy person creates
jobs for people in unemployment,
which is most people. Those people
get jobs and earn money which
creates more jobs and so on.
                                                            
JON NODS HIS HEAD.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Itís a chain reaction. But some
people view our methods a little
(beat) how should I put it (beat)
brutal.
                                                            
                       JON
Brutal? What exactly are you
paying people for?
                                                            
                       SMITH
Remember learning about the
gladiator matches back in Roman
times Jon? We set up a bracket of
fighters and the winner at the end
of it all wins the five million
dollars.
                                                            
JON STUNNED AND SPEECHLESS.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Itís the only way we can bring in
enough money from spectators to
pay the winner.
                                                            
                       JON
      (disgusted)
Are you fucking insane? What the
hell kind of world do you think
this is?
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (loud and
       obviously upset)
I know exactly what kind of world
            (MORE)

10.

                       SMITH (cont'd)
this is and I have woken up!
People, most people still alive
today are too depressed and
starving to give two shits about
anything in this world besides
themselves. This competition will
interest them as they see that
things could be worse, they see
death, and they finally see that
there is something worse in this
world than living! And I donít
know maybe it gives them the
desire to get up off their
depressed ass and make something
of themselves instead of sitting
around rotting like the rest of
this world around them is!
                                                            
JON PUTS HIS FIST OVER HIS MOUTH AND LOOKS DOWN AT THE FLOOR
THINKING.
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (quietly)
Jon, we have your records in this
room. I know all about your past.
I know about how your parents were
killed when you were five.
                                                            
JON LOOKS UP WITH WIDE EYES. THE SCREEN FLASHES TO JONíS
PARENTS FACES IN PAIN AND SCREAMING.
                                                            
                       SMITH
I know your past, youíre a violent
man, a strong man. Youíve had your
share of time in jail and being
chased by the police. Not very
much time (beat) what was it? Six
months in jail for assault
charges?
                                                            
                       JON
Do you even see what your asking
me to do? Your asking me to kill
people.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Thatís right Jon, I am. But I know
as you do, this is the only way
you can turn your life around. We
have held one of these
competitions in this city before.
It was a disaster, many of the
contestants went missing during
            (MORE)

11.

                       SMITH (cont'd)
the matches. But this time we have
left nothing to chance. It will be
perfect and with me as your
sponsor I am sure that you will
without a doubt succeed.
                                                            
                       JON
      (slowly)
All my life I have struggled to
live. Why, just the other day I
almost killed myself. If every day
Iím that close to death, whatís
the difference anyway?
                                                            
WE SEE SMITH SMILING.
                                                            
 
INT. BACK OF A COVERED TRUCK BED - DAY
                                                            
JON RIDES IN THE BACK OF A COVERED TRUCK WITH ANOTHER MAN
THAT IS SMOKING A CIGARETTE. THE RIDE IS VERY ROUGH.
                                                            
                       SMOKING MAN
So, are you fairly confident
youíll win?
                                                            
                       JON
For some odd reason I am not
nervous at all. I donít know what
it is.
                                                            
                       SMOKING MAN
Good, so you think youíll win?
                                                            
                       JON
Yes, I see myself winning, but
Iíve never killed anyone before.
                                                            
THE MAN SMOKING SMILES.
                                                            
                       SMOKING MAN
Good, we hope you do well. There
is more riding on this than just
your life, ya know.
                                                            
THE TRUCK IMMEDIATELY STOPS AND THE SMOKING MAN EXITS.
JON A FEW SECONDS LATER EXITíS THE BACK OF THE TRUCK AND IS
ESCORTED BY A FEW MEN TO A BACK ROOM. THE BUILDING THEY ARE
IN IS VERY RUN DOWN AND OLD. JON FINALLY WINDS UP IN WHAT
APPEARS TO BE AN OLD LOCKER ROOM AND SMITH IS THERE WHILE
THE MEN THAT ESCORTED HIM LEAVE.
                                                            
INT. LOCKER ROOM
                                                            

12.

                       SMITH
Your not having second thoughts
right? You are aware that you are
under contract and backing down
now would most likely-
                                                            
                       JON
      (quickly)
Yes cost me my life I am aware.
Look mister Smith, Iíll be fine
but I think itís perfectly
natural-
                                                            
                       SMITH
To be nervous? Jon let me tell you
two things then ask you one. One,
do not call me mister Smith. Call
me Jack. Two, itís not ok to be
nervous in a time like this. You
must be confident, confident that
you will kill this other man
whoever he is. And finally, I was
unaware that you were at the scene
of your parents murders.
                                                            
                       JON
      (turns away)
Yes, but what does that have to do
with anything?
                                                            
                       SMITH
Just that the murders are unsolved
still to this day and you were at
the crime scene, yes?
                                                            
                       JON
      (angry)
I was five. What do you want from
me?! (Angry) Why the hell does all
that matter now!
                                                            
                       SMITH
I find it interesting. And as a
token of my appreciation I will do
everything I can to bring this
person to you.
                                                            
A MAN WALKS IN AND MOTIONS TO JON THAT HE MUST LEAVE THE
ROOM.
JON LEAVES. FOCUS ON SMITHS FRONT, A MAN (UMASLAK)
APPROACHES FROM BEHIND HIM AND STOPS A FEW FEET SHORT. HE IS
HIDDEN BY A SHADOW.
                                                            

13.

                       SMITH
Do you think that was totally
necessary?
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Seems like it worked to me, sir.
                                                            
SMITH GRINS.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Well we will see soon enough. And
even if he doesnít survive. We
still donít walk away empty
handed.
                                                            
UMASLAK LAUGHS.
                                                            
 
INT. A SMALL ARENA - DAY
                                                            
JON WALKS IN TO THE DIRT PIT IN A CIRCULAR ARENA THE SIZE OF
A SMALL STADIUM. THERE ARE PEOPLE CHEERING. THE CAMERA
FOLLOWS HIM AS HE MAKES HIS WAY TO THE CENTER WHILE LOOKING
AROUND.
WE SEE A MAN STANDING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ARENA PIT. HE
IS POORLY DRESSED LIKE JON.
JON WALKS UP TO A MACHETE STICKING OUT OF THE DIRT IN THE
PIT. HE PICKS IT UP AND STARES DOWN HIS ENEMY WITH A DEEP
HATRED IN HIS EYES.
                                                            
                       LOUDSPEAKER
Good evening ladies and gentlemen.
Tonight the President of this
nation is proud to present you
with this match, with many more to
come!
                                                            
A ROAR FROM THE CROWD.
                                                            
                       LOUDSPEAKER
Tonight we have several matches
and the first we would like to
bring you is two men strait from
the streets of this fine city!
                                                            
CROWD CHEERS AGAIN.
                                                            
                       LOUDSPEAKER
Now (beat) the rules for the ten
following matches tonight!
                                                            

14.

                       JON
      (screaming in all
       directions)
Ten matches!? You people are
setting up a fucking bloodbath! I
want out! Get me out of this damn
place! Now!
                                                            
                       LOUDSPEAKER
The rules (beat) the two
competitors must remain in the pit
at all times. They can only use
the weapon provided for them. And
if the competitors refuse to
compete they both will be
eliminated from the competition,
permanently. (beat) Let the games
begin!
                                                            
THE OTHER FIGHTER INSTANTLY SPRINTS AT JON AND JON DROPS HIS
BLADE. THE MAN RUNS STRAIT UP TO JON AND THRUSTS THE BLADE
AT JONíS HEAD. JON THROWS HIS ARMS UP BLOCKING HIS VIEW AND
THE CAMERAíS. THE SOUND OF BENDING MEDAL IS HEARD AND A BEAT
LATER JON SLOWLY LOWERS HIS ARMS. WE SEE THE OTHER FIGHTER
STARING AT HIS BLADE IN DISBELIEF AS IT IS COMPLETELY BENT
BACKWARD AND WARPED. JON TAKES A SIMILAR LOOK AT THE BLADE
AND JUMPS ON THE OTHER FIGHTER WHO DROPS HIS TWISTED BLADE.
JON AND THE OTHER MAN WRESTLE AROUND IN THE DIRT. --CUT TO
SMITH-- SMITH IS SMILING AS HE LOOKS ON AT THE FIGHT. --CUT
TO JON FIGHTING WITH THE OTHER MAN. AFTER A FEW MOMENTS AND
A FEW PUNCHES ARE EXCHANGED JON LOCATES HIS BLADE IN THE
DIRT AND STABS THE OTHER FIGHTER IN THE CHEST SEVERAL TIMES
VERY VIOLENTLY. JON STANDS UP SPLATTERED IN BLOOD. HE LOOKS
OVER THE CHEERING CROWD AND WALKS BACK TO WHERE HE CAME
FROM.
SMITH IS THERE TO CONGRATULATE JON BUT JON WALKS BY WITHOUT
A GLANCE. JON WALKS BACK TO THE LOCKER ROOM SITS DOWN ON THE
BENCH AND PUTS HIS FACE IN HIS HANDS.
                                                            
INT. LOCKER ROOM
                                                            
                       SMITH
Jon, Iím not so sure what your so
upset about. Your alive and youíre
one step closer to that money!
                                                            
                       JON
So? I killed a man that I havenít
even met before in my life.
                                                            
                       SMITH
He was looking to do the same to
you.
                                                            

15.

                       JON
      (yelling)
I killed him! For no reason!
                                                            
                       SMITH
Not for no reason, Jon. You killed
him for the same reason he was
planning on killing you. He wants
to get his life together! Thatís
what you and all these people have
in common, Jon. Youíre all the
same.
                                                            
                       JON
      (depressed)
I donít feel the same. I feel
different. I donít feel like
myself anymore.
                                                            
CUT TO SMITHS FACE SMILING. CUT TO JON AND SMITH.
                                                            
                       JON
Mister Smith, I donít want to do
this anymore, I want out now.
                                                            
SMITH IMMEDIATELY PULLS A PISTOL OUT OF HIS JACKET AND
POINTS IT AT JONíS FACE.
                                                            
                       SMITH
I wasnít kidding when I made you
sign that contract, Jon. And I
know that nobody else is kidding
when we say that you die if you
refuse to fight.
                                                            
                       JON
What? Are you going to shoot me?
Fine, Iím sure there is plenty of
room in jail for you.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Iím not going to jail. Actually I
am head of this damn project and
the President himself gave me the
authority to kill anyone I see as
hazard in this project's
progression. So donít push me boy.
                                                            
                       JON
The President huh? Thatís a lot of
power for a man who canít keep his
own country from falling apart.
                                                            

16.

SMITH PUSHES THE GUN UP TO JONíS FOREHEAD.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Iím warning you. You have no
choice in this.
                                                            
                       JON
Iím wondering (beat) why is it so
important for the government to
give bums so much money? Seems
strange to me, what about you,
Jack?
                                                            
SMITH TURNS AROUND QUICKLY AND WALKS AWAY INTO ANOTHER ROOM.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
      (off camera)
You were about to shoot him
werenít you?
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (quickly)
Since when do I take advice or
orders from you?
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Never sir.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Thatís what I thought. It doesnít
matter. The bullet probably
wouldnít have killed him anyway.
                                                            
 
INT. SAM'S SHACK - NIGHT
                                                            
SAM IS TRYING TO START A FIRE WHILE JON LEANS AGAINST THE
WALL. WE NOTICE SOME SMALL CUTS AND BRUISES ON SAMíS FACE.
                                                            
                       JON
I hate to intrude on your home
like this but I feel I wont be in
town much longer.
                                                            
                       SAM
Nah, donít worry about it. Hey I
know you need a place to stay so
Iíll do whatever you need until
you get on your way again.
                                                            
SILENCE FOR A FEW SECONDS.
                                                            

17.

                       SAM
You said you found some sort of
job?
                                                            
                       JON
Yeah (beat) itís, well itís kind
of difficult to talk about.
                                                            
                       SAM
Hey however you can make a living
is a good way.
                                                            
                       JON
True but, what Iím doing isnít
exactly normal, I mean-
                                                            
                       SAM
Donít worry about it. (tone
raised) STANDS UP-- Your making a
living and it doesnít matter what
any other asshole thinks about
your job. This world is wrecked.
How can we be expected to make an
honest living in a place like this
anyway? We are trying to survive
everyday, not live everyday. So if
it works for you then hell (beat)
who really cares?
                                                            
                       JON
I guess your right. This (beat)
job will pay off in the end
anyway.
                                                            
                       SAM
What is it you are doing anyway?
                                                            
                       JON
Donít worry about it.
                                                            
 
INT. THE SHACK - NIGHT
                                                            
JON LAYS ON THE MATTRESS WIDE AWAKE STARING AT THE CEILING.
                                                            
                       JON
      (whispering to
       himself)
Why didnít they keep me at the
apartment buildingÖ?
                                                            
JON SLOWLY STANDS UP NOT TRYING TO WAKE SAM UP ACROSS THE

18.

ROOM. HE LEAVES THE SHACK AND PROCEEDS TO WALK DOWN THE DARK
EMPTY STREET. AFTER SOME TIME HE ARRIVES AT THE APARTMENT
BUILDING AND FINDS THE FRONT DOOR EASY TO KICK DOWN.
                                                            
INT. APARTMENT BUILDING LOBBY
                                                            
HE MAKES HIS WAY UP TO THE ROOM WHERE HE HAD THE MEETING
WITH SMITH. HE FINDS THE DOOR LOCKED BUT HAS NO TROUBLE
BREAKING THE LOCK AND ENTERING THE ROOM. HE LOCATES A FILING
CABINET AND SIFTS THROUGH IT UNTIL HE LOCATES HIS RECORD. HE
BRINGS IT OVER TO THE TABLE AND TURNS ON THE LAMP.
                                                            
WE SEE THE FOLLOWING WRITTEN ON THE RECORD:

Subject: Jon Stoove
Occupation: None
Status: Alive
Agreed to Contract: Yes
Current Bank Balance: $25,392,041.00
                                                            
CUT TO JON, HE APPEARS EXTREMELY CONFUSED. WE SEE HIM MOUTH
THE WORDS OVER AND OVER AGAIN. WE HEAR FOOTSTEPS AND A NOISE
COME FROM OUTSIDE THE ROOM AND JON QUICKLY SHUTS OFF THE
LIGHT AND PUTS THE FILE BACK IN THE CABINET.
                                                            
 
INT. THE SMALL ARENA - NIGHT
                                                            
(SLOW MOTION) A GRUNT IS HEARD AS A MAN FALLS BACKWARDS ALL
BLOODY. HE FALLS ONTO HIS BACK AND SLIDES A FEW FEET BEFORE
HE STOPS. (REAL TIME) WE SEE JON IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ARENA
PUMPING HIS FISTS IN THE AIR. PICTURES ARE BEING TAKEN IN
THE CROWD.
(SLOW MOTION) CUT TO JON PUMMELING A DIFFERENT PERSON IN THE
ARENA AT A LATER DATE. THE OTHER FIGHTER SPINS IN THE AIR AS
HE FALLS. (REAL TIME) WE SEE SMITH SMILING AS THE CROWD
CHEERS IN THE BACKGROUND. CUT TO JON AND THE ANOTHER FIGHTER
IN THE ARENA AT A LATER TIME. WITH SEVERAL BLOWS JON KNOCKS
THIS MAN DOWN AND STABS HIM OVER AND OVER WITH A KNIFE. VIEW
FROM JON FEET AS HE STANDS UP COVERED IN THE OTHER MANS
BLOOD. THE CROWD CHEERS AND HE LOOKS AROUND AS THE CAMERA
ROTATES.
                                                            
 
INT. APARTMENT BUILDING - NIGHT
                                                            
SMITH AND UMASLAK (HIDDEN BY SHADOW) IN THE APARTMENT OFFICE
ROOM.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Someone tampered with the files.
Theyíre out of place.
                                                            

19.

                       SMITH
Are you sure? One of these dumb
asses could have just thrown it in
there.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
I just know. I came by a few
nights ago and I swear someone was
in the building with me. And the
place was supposed to be empty.
You can't ignore a force that
size.
                                                            
                       SMITH
So are the files switched or what?
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
No, I checked through all of them,
there was only one that was out of
place. It was (beat) Jon Stooveís
file.
                                                            
SMITH LOOKS BACK AT UMASLAK STILL HIDDEN BY SHADOW.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Do you want him killed?
                                                            
                       SMITH
No (beat) no reason for that. He
actually made it to the
championship fight. So it doesnít
matter what he saw. If he knows
too much we can just kill him.
There is no reason to get worried,
this is all in our hands. If for
some reason he decides not to show
up, weíll put the entire city on
lockdown and burn every house and
every building to the ground until
we find him. Iíll give you total
command over the situation.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
So you think this will become a
major military concern?
                                                            
                       SMITH
This man, is different than all
the others Iíve seen. Heís (beat)
better. But itís a shame he isnít
even aware. Could you imagine?
                                                            

20.

                       UMASLAK
You mean the..?
                                                            
                       SMITH
Of course. We are very close here
I can feel it. Even if everything
goes awry itís still 25 million
dollars in my pocket.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Yes, sir. By the way. The new
weapons are ready for testing. Our
older model doesn't kill the
victim but this new one, if it
test well, will.
                                                            
                       SMITH
How long will it take?
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
I'll say a couple years for us to
phase it in. No rush.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Yeah (beat) yeah. Go home Umaslak.
                                                            
 
INT. A HUGE ARENA THE LOCKER ROOM - DAY
                                                            
Jon sits on the bench with his arms on his knees looking at
the floor. You can tell that he has gotten much stronger.
Smith leans against the lockers behind Jon picking his
fingers with his teeth.
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (Still picking
       fingers)
So you ready for this shit?
                                                            
                       JON
What do you want me to say? Yes?
This is still bullshit. You know I
don't want to do this anymore.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Well that's just too fucking bad.
You know Jon, I wont hesitate to
kill you myself if you try to get
out of this. So don't say another
damn word.
                                                            
Jon jumps up from the bench screaming and takes a swing at

21.

Smith. He misses and Smith quickly grabs Jon by the neck and
lifts him off the ground while pressing him against the
lockers with one hand. Jon tries to breathe while kicking
his feet.
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (smiling)
Don't mess with me boy. You still
have no idea do you? Huh? I will
not be stopped. Not by anyone. Not
by any other country and
especially not by a worthless
little shit like you. (Long pause)
Now your going to go out there,
your going to kill this other man
and your going to come back a
millionaire.
                                                            
Smith stares Jon in the face for a moment and drops him to
the ground. Smith quickly walks out of the room while Jon
lays on the ground catching his breath. Jon stands up and
slams his fist against the locker door and the door breaks
off and slams against the floor. Jon looks down at the door.
                                                            
                       JON
      (quietly)
What is happening to me?
                                                            
                       MAN IN SUIT #2
      (walks into view)
Don't worry about it.
                                                            
                       JON
What ya mean don't worry about it?
                                                            
                       MAN IN SUIT #2
I said it's none of your concern
anymore. You're Smith's property
now even if you don't realize it
yet.
                                                            
                       JON
What can I do?
                                                            
                       MAN IN SUIT #2
Don't tell anyone I told you but.
If I was you. I would go out there
and die.
                                                            
Man in Suit #2 walks away.
                                                            
 

22.

INT. THE HUGE ARENA - DAY
                                                            
Jon walks out to the arena floor as the hge crowd cheers. We
see the oppenent on the other side. The oppenent is too far
away to see clearly but he picks an axe off the weapon rack
and starts walking toward Jon. Jon picks up a similar axe
off his rack and walks to the center. Jon and the oppenent
meet in the center of the ring and we see the the opponent
is Sam.
                                                            
                       JON
You gotta be kidding me.
                                                            
                       SAM
      (raising the axe)
Ready?
                                                            
                       JON
I can't attack you man! Are you
crazy? I'm not going to try to
kill you! (Turns around) Go fuck
yourself Smith!
                                                            
                       SAM
This has to be Jon! It's one of us
or both of us! You know what kind
of place these people are running!
Trust me (beat) it's not the money
anymore. Fuck, how long can two
million dollars last anyway?
                                                            
                       JON
      (turns to Sam)
Two million? I was told it was
five. That bank account... It's a
scam!
                                                            
                       SAM
Let's get out of here man. Right
now!
                                                            
The camera shifts and we see a gate open and behind it is a
tank and several heavily armed soldiers.
                                                            
Both Sam and Jon drop their weapons with a look of defeat.
                                                            
The entire arena begins to shake as the camera focuses on
the soldiers and the tank. The soldiers fall to their feet
and the tank driver opens the hatch and looks out. A huge
explosion from the roof rocks the arena as debris falls to
the arena floor.
                                                            

23.

We see a huge hole in the top of the arena dome and a man
looking down through the hold several hundered feet above.
The man jumps and the crowed gasps. He lands on his feet
leaving a crater in the ground. The man walks over to Sam
and Jon.
                                                            
                       DEPI
      (calmly)
Jon, Sam how are you guys doing?
Havin' some trouble?
                                                            
                       JON
      (confused)
Uh, yes... what are you doing here
and how did you... fucking do
that?
                                                            
                       DEPI
Don't worry about it right now,
I'm going to get you guys out of
here.
                                                            
Depi runs full sprint at the soldiers faster than they can
react and kills them in hand to hand combat without taking a
single blow. Depi moves in front of the tank and with major
strain bends the gun on the tank. Depi runs back to Sam and
Jon as we see hundereds of soldiers begin to pour into the
arena floor. Depi takes Sam and Jon (one in each hand and
throws them through the hole in the roof of the arena and
then with a quick smirk jumps up himself.
                                                            
 
INT. DEPI'S HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
We see Depi sitting in a chair facing Jon and Sam who are
sitting on a couch.
                                                            
                       DEPI
Did you guys really think it was
going to work out?(long beat)I
mean nobody gives away money like
that, in this economy people can't
pay more than a couple of bucks to
see an event like that. It's
impossible to raise 5 million to
pay you, with some left over for
their "organization" to make a
profit off of.
                                                            

24.

                       JON
I'm aware that what I, we did was
stupid. But I was at the breaking
point and shit I didn't want to
die like this!
                                                            
                       DEPI
You two still have no idea do you.
I understand that the media is
almost non-existant anymore but
Smith, is the president and only
started this game to get rich off
you guys.
                                                            
Camera shows Jon and Sam. They are shocked by the news.
                                                            
                       DEPI
Both of you are millionaires. Jon
you saw your account balance
right?
                                                            
Jon nods his head.
                                                            
                       DEPI
The "formality" in the contract
you signed mentioned that if you
died durring the games you would
give Smith everything you owned.
Now to you two that seems like
shit. But he has been at this for
months now.
                                                            
                       SAM
But what if we lived? Would he
kill us even then?
                                                            
                       DEPI
      (slight laugh)
No, no. All the contestants are
rich. The five million he would
give up would be nothing compared
to what he would take in. It's
flawless. But this is his only way
to collect money for himself and
perhaps strengthen the government.
                                                            
                       JON
If the government found out about
this he would be thrown ut of
office, right?
                                                            

25.

                       DEPI
Hell if I know. But that's not
what I'm concerned with.
                                                            
                       SAM
Here's what I'm concerned with.
How the hell did you do all that
shit at the arena today?
                                                            
From the room behind where Depi is sitting his wife walks
in.
                                                            
                       SHANNON
      (sitting down)
That's quite the question.
                                                            
                       DEPI
My wife was working with the
government a few years ago. She
worked in...uh
                                                            
Depi looks at his wife.
                                                            
                       SHANNON
I worked in the human DNA
dovelopment center. Basically I
looked for ways to improve our
preformance as human beings.
                                                            
                       JON
So you're taking some sort of
drug.
                                                            
                       SHANNON
Well of course that seemed like
the ideal answer to our question
but what we found was much more
simple. It appears we used the
person and only the person to
improve themself.
                                                            
The screen fades black and shows the outline of a human in
white. Inside the white outline glows a dull blue.
                                                            
                       SHANNON (VO)
We found something that exists in
every living thing. And even some
things with the exception of metal
that are not alive. For the sake
of simplicity they called this Chi
energy. The myth of this goes
back, however long ago. What we
found out was that all people
            (MORE)

26.

                       SHANNON (cont'd)
(beat) normal people get all of
their strength and ability to
function from this energy. This
energy force that sits in us can
be measured in Watts. A normal
human can have between 50 and 110
Watts active in their body at any
given time. We discovered that
through emotional force and
extreme excersise tequniques we
can raise this maximum Wattage in
a human by a great number.
                                                            
The blue inside the white outline begins to glow brighter
and stronger and pulsing longer.
                                                            
                       SHANNON (VO)
My husband has about 25,000 Watts
of energy to use at his will.
That's how he saved you.
                                                            
The blue explodes and fills the views and we cut back to
Depi's house.
                                                            
                       DEPI
If you can control this energy
anything is possible. You can
become stronger than you could
have ever imagined. And using this
knowledge we will take Smith out
and end this madness.
                                                            
                       JON
      (Stands up quickly)
Whoa! You want us to help you with
this?
                                                            
                       DEPI
There are no more money presses in
this country. We destroy all his
money and he is ruined then we can
move in and kill him.
                                                            
                       JON
This is absolutely insane. Your
wife worked with the government
they obviously have the same
information we do.
                                                            
                       DEPI
That's right they do. All we have
to do is prepare you two. I know
you want this to happen. They will
            (MORE)

27.

                       DEPI (cont'd)
be looking for you anyway. Smith
never forgets, and neither can we.
                                                            
                       SAM
Jon, you know it's Smith and all
the leaders before him that have
brought this country to the state
it is in now. We can't sit here
and do nothing. You know how
strong you have already become
because of these games, I've felt
it too. It's time we make a stand.
                                                            
                       JON
But why us?
                                                            
                       DEPI
Why not?
                                                            
 
INT. OUTSIDE THE HILLSIDE CURRENCY VAULT - DAY
                                                            
The screen is black. We see the words '1 Year Later' Typed
out then disappear. We fade to scenes of the city. We see
soldiers standing at the corrners of streets and many walls
of barbed wire. The city has obviously changes as the
government looks for Jon.
                                                            
After the shots of the city we fade to outside the vault
building where Jon Sam and Depi are standing.
                                                            
                       DEPI
Alright, just work together and we
should get out of this just fine.
(Faces Sam) You got the bomb all
set?
                                                            
                       SAM
      (holding duffle
       bag)
Of course. But what if our status
becomes critical in there? How are
we supposed to know. I keep asking
you.
                                                            

28.

                       DEPI
      (pulls out
       bracelets)
Oh, thanks for reminding me. Wear
these. Shannon made these a few
months ago. They pick up a signal
Chi energy puts off and converts
it into numbers. I don't really
know how it works.
                                                            
The three men put them on and we get a look at the numbers.
Sam: 65,834. Depi: 93,712. Jon: 90,913. Depi looks down at
Jon's bracelet with confusion.
                                                            
                       DEPI
      (confused)
How in God's name? That can't be
right.
                                                            
                       JON
It has to be. Trust me.
                                                            
The three men walk into the lobby of the building. There is
a man in a suit sitting behind a desk and two guards
standing in front of the elevator behind the desk. Depi
walks up to the desk and smiles while Jon and Sam stand
behind him looking over the room.
                                                            
                       VAULT TELLER #1
      (one raised
       eyebrow)
Can I help you?
                                                            
                       DEPI
Yes you can. Ever been a human
sheild?
                                                            
                       VAULT TELLER #1
      (extremly confused)
Wha?
                                                            
The vault teller is cut off as Depi raises his hand in front
of him and the vault teller is ejected out of his seet and
his throat lands inside Depi's grasp. Depi drags the vault
teller over the desk and uses him as a human sheild as he
walks to the elevator. The two guards see what is going on
and start firing their pistols. By this time Jon and Sam
make their way extremely fast behind the guards jumping up
and killing both of them with spinning kicks to the head.
The guards spin around a few times and land heavy on the
ground.
                                                            

29.

                       SAM
      (Looks at Jon)
Holy shit.
                                                            
Depi drops the vault teller's bullet riddled corpse and
proceedes to the elevator with Jon and Sam.
                                                            
They step inside the elevator and hit the button for the
bottom floor. We see the elevator door open from the outside
and they walk to the vault door. The door is massive and is
from the floor to the roof. We get a view from inside the
vault. We hear a loud rumbling noise and see the vault door
begin to shake. Eventually the door collapses inward
exposing Jon Depi and Sam. They walk into the vault and we
see piles of gold and giant bricks of money.
                                                            
                       SAM
      (looking around)
Damn there must be billions in
this one alone.
                                                            
An alarm sounds.
                                                            
                       LOUDSPEAKER
Alert to all security personel.
Vault breach. I repeat (beat)
vault breach. Use of deadly force
authorized.
                                                            
                       DEPI
Shit! Hurry up and activate that
thing. Wasn't counting on that.
                                                            
                       SAM
      (throws the empty
       duffle bag at Jon)
Fill it up.
                                                            
As Jon fills the bag with cash Sam begins activating the
bomb.
                                                            
They finish in the vault and make their way back to the
elevator killing soldiers along the way in miniature
battles. The make it to the elevator. We see the elevator
door open from the outside as they rush into the lobby and
stop in the middle. We see two of the three original men in
suits standing in front of someone we cannot see.
                                                            
                       MAN IN SUIT #1
Mister Stoove. I could tell from
the first day we heard about you
that you would be trouble.
                                                            

30.

                       MAN IN SUIT #2
We've had a hell of a time finding
you. But you came to us. I guess
it was unnecessary for us to tear
apart this city looking for you
three.
                                                            
We see the three getting very impatient.
                                                            
                       MAN IN SUIT #2
And mister Depi. It seems you're
just one of those that just
doesn't go away.
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (steps out from
       behind the two
       men in suits)
How's the wife?
                                                            
                       DEPI
      (points at Smith)
Shut the hell up!
                                                            
                       SMITH
Did you three really think that
you blowing up my money was really
going to hinder any of my
operations?
                                                            
The two men in suits walk out of the buildings front door.
                                                            
                       SMITH
And Depi, shame on your wife for
giving out our government's
secrets. Don't worry she paid for
that.
                                                            
Smith holds out his arm to show he is wearing a bracelet.
                                                            
                       DEPI
      (charging Smith)
You motherfucker!
                                                            
Smith hold out his hand and about two feet from Smith Depi
is stopped in mid air and connot move. Smith looks at his
bracelet still holding his hand out.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Hmm, around 300,000 Watts. What
does your's say mister Depi?
                                                            

31.

                       JON
      (grumbling)
That's impossible...
                                                            
                       SMITH
Not impossible, Jon. It's just
good science. Now. Let's make a
deal. You surrender right now and
we take you into custody. Or, I
kill him.
                                                            
Depi groans and begins to shake trying to move.
                                                            
                       JON
NO!
                                                            
Jon sprints at Smith and Smith drops Depi from his invisible
grasp. All three of them begin to attack Smith but Smith
manages to defend himself easily and knocks all three of
them down.
                                                            
                       SMITH
You see it's hopeless for you!
                                                            
                       DEPI
      (screaming)
DIE MURDERER!
                                                            
Depi catches Smith off guard and lands a devistating kick to
his back. Smith is thrown through the air and goes through a
nearby wall.
                                                            
                       DEPI
Let's go this place is going to
fucking explode!
                                                            
The three men gather themselves and run out the door. They
go to the parking lot and break into a nearby cargo van.
Depi hotwires the van and they drive off as the vault
building explodes.
                                                            
We have a view looking down the side of a road. The van
speeds by followed closely by military vehicles.
                                                            
We see inside the van as the three men are panicing.
                                                            
                       JON
Shit, shit! What the hell do we do
now!?
                                                            
                       SAM
We're fucked man there's no way
out of this shit!
                                                            

32.

                       DEPI
Shut up both of you! I'm thinking!
I didn't plan on this happening.
But Smith knew we were comming.
Shit! How the fuck did he know?!
                                                            
The camera looks out the windsheild as we see a roadblock on
the other side of an overpass that the van is heading
directly for.
                                                            
                       DEPI
Dammit! In case we don't make it I
'm sorry I brought you guys into
my fight.
                                                            
                       JON
Incase we don't make what?
                                                            
In the middle of the overpass Depi swerves off and the van
falls to the street below on it's side. Move to view inside
the wrecked van seconds after impact.
                                                            
                       SAM
Oh, shit man...
                                                            
                       DEPI
You'll live (beat) let's get the
hell out of here.
                                                            
The three men exit the van and sprint off down the street.
                                                            
The camera moves back ontop of the overpass and we see a
soldier (officer or higher ranking) standing with Umaslak
                                                            
                       HIGH RANKING SOLDIER
Do we continue the chase sir?
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Nah, I'll ask to see what the
president wants us to do. Plus I
have a feeling we will see those
fuckers again. (Laughs)
                                                            
                       HIGH RANKING SOLDIER
Understood, sir.
                                                            
                       HIGH RANKING SOLDIER
      (on radio)
Squad fall back to the vault.
Pursuit team follow the suqad.
                                                            

33.

The soldiers drive off and Umaslak remains standing there
looking off in the distance as a black car parks behind him.
Smith exits the car and stands next to Umaslak.
                                                            
                       SMITH
I want them dead. All of them.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Absolutely understood, sir. Even
Stoove?
                                                            
                       SMITH
Yes him too. I could feel how weak
he was. He's not who we are
looking for. There's no way. He is
a gifted man but there is no
chance.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
We doing blood testing then, sir?
                                                            
                       SMITH
Yes, that's top priority. Hell
even I'm going to be tested. I
want it done as soon as possible.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Yes, sir.
                                                            
                       SMITH
As for those three, no search
party. Nothing. They will come to
us. I don't want to waste any
manpower on this.
                                                            
The camera pulls back and Smith gets back in his car and
drives away.
                                                            
 
INT. THE PROPERTY OF DEPI'S NOW BURNED DOWN HOME - NIGHT
                                                            
Depi is pacing back and forth in front of the ashes while
Jon and Sam watch.
                                                            
                       DEPI
I'm sorry you guys. I know Smith
wanted you dead before but now I
just made things worse for you
guys. I think you should get out
of town now.
                                                            

34.

                       JON
Fuck that shit. I want to see
Smith fail just as much as you do.
He knows something about my
parents' death. I want to find out
what it is. It's all I think about
now. It's why I'm doing this.
                                                            
                       DEPI
Then what do we do?
                                                            
                       JON
I'm not sure...
                                                            
                       SAM
The capital building. I say we
break in there and end this.
                                                            
                       JON
The capital building? Are you
serious? How in the hell do you
think we are going to do that?
                                                            
                       SAM
We bust in and attack Smith head
on. He wont expect that. If we can
catch him off guard then maybe we
can take him down.
                                                            
                       JON
Take him down? Even if we somehow
manage to make it past security
you know that Smith is stronger
than all of us combined. (long
pause) But, it's the best idea
yet.
                                                            
                       DEPI
Let's do it. Tomorrow night.
What's the worst that could
happen? Our capture? Our death?
With Smith in power the manhunt
will continue until one of those
thing's happens. Something big is
going to happen very soon. I can
feel it.
                                                            
We see Jon, he is emotionless.
                                                            
 

35.

INT. SMITH'S OFFICE - NIGHT
                                                            
We see Smith's fist slam on the desk and create a small
crater in the desk.
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (screaming)
That's bullshit!
                                                            
                       MAN IN SUIT #3
      (scared)
Um sir, the senate is meeting
tomorrow to debate and see if they
can vote on this. There is nothing
that can be done (beat) I'm sorry.
                                                            
                       SMITH
They can't do this! How is this
the first time I've heard about
this?!
                                                            
The double doors swing open and Umaslak rushes in and grabs
the man in the suit and lifts him off the ground by his
collar with one hand.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
They are trying to vote the
president out of office and you
just now inform us?!
                                                            
Umaslak looks over to Smith.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Kill him.
                                                            
                       MAN IN SUIT #3
No wait!
                                                            
Umaslak grabs the man in the suit's head with his free and
and breaks his neck then throws the body into the hallway.
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (looking out the
       window)
Who is to take over if they vote
me out?
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
      (looks down at the
       floor)
I beleive Senator Johnson takes
over in the unlikely event, sir.
                                                            

36.

                       SMITH
I appriciate the self esteem boost
Umaslak but I am fully aware of
the situation. I know that the
house is currently 90% in favor of
my impeachment. I doubt that the
other 10% will be able to sway the
vote in tomorrows vote by more
than 5%.
                                                            
                       SMITH
This country is falling appart.
There isn't even any structure in
my government anymore.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
The senate want's to change
thing's, sir. They don't see what
needs to be done to keep the
peace.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Force (beat) of course is the only
way we can control the public,
otherwise we lose billions to some
terrorists. The military is our
future not a bunch of politicians
fighting over meaningless shit in
a board room!
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Uh, sir on a positive note, we
have finished nearly half of the
blood test and so far all
negative. But that's only half so
we still have a good chance...
                                                            
                       SMITH
All I want is a positive test.
Then maybe I can show these
dumbass senators what exactly I'm
talking about.
                                                            
 
INT. OUTSIDE THE CAPITAL BUILDING - NIGHT
                                                            
We have a camera following Jon as he walks up the stairs to
the skyscraper. He walks in the front door to the lobby. He
approaches the desk. There is a soldier behind the desk that
looks at Jon strangely.
                                                            
                       SOLDIER #2
Do you have an appointment?
                                                            

37.

We look back at Jon as he cracks a half smile.
                                                            
Cut to another room. The body of Soldier #2 flys through the
wall.
                                                            
Cut back to the lobby. Sam and Depi run in the front door.
                                                            
                       DEPI
That could have been more subtle.
Let's move.
                                                            
The three men run into the elevator and hit the button for
the top floor. The elevator begins to move and moments later
we see a white flash as Jon falls to the floor. Jon quickly
stands back up and hits the elevator stop button. The Doors
open and we see rows of prison cells. Jon steps out and
slows begins to walk down the row.
                                                            
                       SAM
Jon, what the hell are you doing?
                                                            
Jon continues walking down the row and Dpei and Sam follow.
After a moment he stops at a cell and looks in. We see Dan
for the first time.
                                                            
                       DAN
      (stands up)
You must be Jon Stoove.
                                                            
                       JON
How did you know?
                                                            
                       DAN
All these people have been going
crazy about you guys. They are in
a panic.
                                                            
                       JON
And who are you?
                                                            
                       DEPI
What the hell are you doing!?
                                                            
                       JON
      (turns)
Shut up!
                                                            
                       DAN
I used to be the presidents
bodyguard but (beat) I failed him
so he put me in here. I would do
anything to get a shot at him.
                                                            

38.

Jon reaches for the prison bars (glowing blue).
                                                            
                       DAN
Don't! It's artificial Chi energy,
you can't touch it. There's a
switch on the wall over there.
                                                            
Sam jogs over to the switch and flips it. The bars stop
glowing and the door swings open. Depi quickly hands Dan a
baracelet. He clamps it on. We see it reads 120,000.
                                                            
                       DEPI
120 thousand exactly?
                                                            
                       DAN
Yeah, weird eh?
                                                            
The four men run back to the elevator.
                                                            
Cut to Smith's office. Smith and Umaslak are talking.
                                                            
                       SMITH
How long does it take these
senators to do anything?!
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
It's getting old waiting for these
men. The've been in there all day.
                                                            
We hear fighting comming from outside the office door. Smith
and Umaslak look at the office door as a soldiers body
breaks the door open. Then the four men enter the office.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
I don't remember ordering any
terrorists. And look the freed the
failed bodyguard. Isn't that
something.
                                                            
Umaslak looks back at Smith.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Kill them.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Well looks like you bastards came
here just to die. Sorry bout that
but it's just to fucking bad.
                                                            
                       DEPI
Umaslak! You are not in this, step
down. There's only one of you.
                                                            

39.

                       UMASLAK
That's true but I count 4 weak
individuals. I'm counting almost
half a million Watts on this nice
little invention. Lucky for you
the president hasn't had enough
time to recover from that
explosion he was caught in.
                                                            
Umaslak attacks Depi directly and the other three men join
in the fight. We focus on Smith who is climbing a ladder to
the roof. The fight carries on for several minuets. The four
men keep getting ejected from the fight and slammed into the
walls which leaves a crater every time. Eventually the four
men start getting hits in and Umaslak leaps to the ladder
and climbs up. The four men follow Umaslak and see him
signaling a chopper for Smith.
                                                            
We cut to Depi who holds his hand out at the chopper and
begins screaming.
                                                            
We cut to inside the chopper where alarms are going off.
                                                            
                       PILOT #1
What the hell is going on?!
                                                            
                       PILOT #2
Shit! The main blades are
stopping!
                                                            
                       PILOT #1
Come on! Stay up dammit!
                                                            
We see the chopper begin to spin out of control as the main
blades stop. It spins downward and crashes on the edge of
the building exploding.
                                                            
Depi falls to his knees and is breathing hard. Smith and
Umaslak look at the four men.
                                                            
                       JON
It's over! Give up now! There's
nowhere to go!
                                                            
We see behind the four men. Seven soldiers run up and look
at Umaslak. They all have rifles.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
      (panic)
Backup finaly! Kill them!!
                                                            

40.

                       SOLDIER #3
Sir, we are here under orders from
Senator Johnson. The ex-president
is to be taken into custody for
the charges pressed against him.
                                                            
Umaslak steps away from Smith as the soldiers move around
the four men.
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (backing to the
       edge of the
       building)
This is bullshit!
                                                            
As the soldiers slowly advace they raise their rifles and
point them at smith.
                                                            
                       SOLDIER #3
You are under arrest for the 213
charges pressed against you. You
have the right to...
                                                            
                       SMITH
You can't do this to me!
                                                            
                       SOLDIER #3
Sir! There is nothing you can do.
It's over!
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (quietly)
Is it?
                                                            
Smith backs up to the ledge. The soldiers advance and stop a
few feet away.
                                                            
                       SOLDIER #3
Sir, there is nowhere to go.
You're 200 floors up.
                                                            
                       SMITH
So?
                                                            
Smith flips off the roof and we see from behind the soldiers
as the rush ontop of the ledge and immediately fire downward
as Smith falls. We cut to Smith falling down the side of the
building. Bullets are whizzing by as Smith twists in the air
and lands on the pavement making a small crater. After
impact he sprints off in the distance at an insane speed.
                                                            
Cut to the roof. We see the soldiers have stopped shooting.
They turn and see Umaslak watching.
                                                            

41.

                       SOLDIER #3
Where did the terrorists go?
                                                            
Umaslak turns around and we see that nobody is there.
                                                            
 
INT. CAR - NIGHT
                                                            
The four men sit in the car. Depi is driving Jon sits in a
passenger seat and Dan and Sam are in the back.
                                                            
                       DAN
So where exactly are we going?
                                                            
                       DEPI
Well you'll know eventually but
first I want to find out who the
hell you are.
                                                            
                       DAN
I told you already, I worked for
Smith. As a bodyguard...remember.
I've been in jail for over a year
because of that man, all I want is
to get my life back together and
kill him.
                                                            
                       DEPI
Yeah we all want to kill Smith for
some reason but he may not be
playing such a huge factor
anymore. The government may be our
biggest concern.
                                                            
                       JON
Yes, Depi is right. Umaslak is
becoming very interested in the
dovelopment and use of Chi energy
in the military. If they start
training their soldiers it could
cause a huge problem for us...
                                                            
                       DAN
You shouldn't worry about that.
You should worry about the tests
they have been doing.
                                                            
                       SAM
Tests? Like...
                                                            
                       DAN
Apparently the have taken blood
from everyone involved with the
            (MORE)

42.

                       DAN (cont'd)
government, hell they even drew
blood from me. I'm not sure what
it's for though. Something big is
going to happen...
                                                            
                       SAM
So where are we going?
                                                            
                       DEPI
To pay someone a visit.
                                                            
 
INT. SENATE HALL - NIGHT
                                                            
Senator Johnson stands before the rest of the senators and
Umaslak adressing them. We see a view from the back of the
huge room then cut right next to Johnson.
                                                            
                       SENATOR JOHNSON
I would like to thank each and
every one of you to make this
process as painless as possible.
So now we can introduce new and
improved leadership to this
country. A new kind of democracy
where we use miltary force not for
personal gain but for the gain of
this country and this country
alone!
                                                            
Everyone claps.
                                                            
                       SENATOR JOHNSON
We can finally put this whole
President ordeal behind us and
focus on the future!
                                                            
Everyone claps. Umaslak stands up.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Senator!
                                                            
                       SENATOR JOHNSON
Sit down General, you have not
been recognized on the floor!
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Well I better be recognized! Has
anyone been listening to the
Senator?!
                                                            

43.

                       SENATOR JOHNSON
General you will sit down or I
will have you arrested!
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
There's no use Senator. Soon this
whole city, perhaps the whole
planet will burn around us.
                                                            
Umaslak tosses a folder onto the table infront of him.
Johnson looks at him for an explanation.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
I received the blood test results.
All the tests have been completed.
                                                            
                       SENATOR JOHNSON
      (concerned)
And...
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
There was a positive match (beat)
I checked three times and eveytime
it came up identical.
                                                            
The room becomes noisy.
                                                            
                       SENATOR JOHNSON
Shut up!
                                                            
The room grows silent.
                                                            
                       SENATOR JOHNSON
And the positive...
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
It's Smith.
                                                            
The room becomes extremely noisy.
                                                            
                       SENATOR JOHNSON
Shut up! Everyone shut the hell
up! What do you suguest, General?
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Give me full command of the
military. We need to train as many
soldiers to raise the Wattage in
their bodies as quickly as we can.
If we don't and Smith discovers
the test results which he
undoubtedly will, we will not
survive.
                                                            

44.

                       SENATOR JOHNSON
Full command (beat) you got it.
What's first?
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
We hunt down and capture Smith.
Then we bring him to the
collection point ourselves.
                                                            
                       SENATOR JOHNSON
Are you insane?!
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
You want military dominance over
the entire world right Senator?
Well this will be our new Bio
Weapon project. With Smith under
our control we will have control
over the world in days.
                                                            
                       SENATOR JOHNSON
We could kill off those terroists
without even trying (beat) what's
the estimated Wattage he will
receive?
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
We really can't make a very
accurate guess but I'd say in the
billions.
                                                            
 
INT. OLD MAN'S HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
We see the four men standing outside the a door. Depi
knocks. A second later the door opens and we see a man
sitting in a rocking chair across the room. The four men
enter and the old man waves his and and the door closes.
                                                            
                       OLD MAN
Mister Depi, now there is someone
I haven't seen in a long time.
Last time I saw you, you were
running from the police.
                                                            
                       DEPI
Yes sir that's right.
                                                            
                       OLD MAN
And here you are again. Who's
chasing you now?
                                                            

45.

                       DEPI
We are not being chased. At least
as far as I know. I've come
because something very strange is
happening. Dan.
                                                            
                       DAN
The government has been doing
blood tests recently. I think it
has something to do with the Chi
energy. I don't have all the
details all I can do is speculate
on what exactly is going on but
something big is happening, isn't
it.
                                                            
                       OLD MAN
And you work for the government?
                                                            
                       DAN
No I was a prisoner and let's just
say that I overheard a lot.
                                                            
                       OLD MAN
I think I know what's going on.
It's happening again. There is a
ledgend. It says that every 1000
years someone is born with the
ability to gather all the loose
Chi energy from the world. This
person then becomes the supreme
being among us and rules the world
until he dies. I mean Wattage in
the billions or even trillions.
                                                            
                       JON
Did you just say trillions?
                                                            
                       OLD MAN
Yes. They are doing blood tests
because that persons DNA will be
an exact copy of the last persons
DNA who had this ability. If the
government manages to find a match
you know that they will exploit it
to the fullest extent possible.
                                                            
                       DEPI
It would most likely be a person
who is already incredibly strong
and has an easy time raising the
Wattage in their body right?
                                                            

46.

                       OLD MAN
Yes.
                                                            
                       SAM
Smith! It has to be!
                                                            
                       JON
No! That's not possible! If it is,
everything we know could be...
                                                            
                       OLD MAN
It gets worse. Nobody in the
history of this legend has been
able to control the energy they
are given. They die moments later
in a catastrophic explosion. With
every explosion brings the chance
that the planet itself could be
destroyed. So far... we have
survived but with every 1000 years
that pass more and more people are
born. This creates more and more
energy to be collected.
                                                            
                       SAM
Shit! Shit!
                                                            
                       DEPI
What the hell are we going to do
now!?
                                                            
                       JON
We find Smith and kill him. We can
deal with the government some
other time. This has to happen.
                                                            
                       DAN
I know Umaslak. We've worked
together before. In a time like
this he will probably be trying to
take complete control of the
government. I doubt that will
happen but I guarantee he has
already deployed a search team for
Smith. We are a secondary
objective here.
                                                            
                       JON
You're right, we should use that
to our advantage.
                                                            

47.

                       DEPI
Jon you see extremely focused.
Only because you want something
for yourself!
                                                            
                       JON
What?
                                                            
                       DEPI
You want to know what happened to
your parents. You don't care what
happens to this country or the
planet for that matter!
                                                            
                       JON
I do care dammit! He knows
something about my parents death I
can just tell. He said he would
find out!
                                                            
                       SAM
This isn't the time for this shit!
                                                            
                       DEPI
Shut up, shut the hell up! He
doesn't know anything, Jon! Don't
you see yet? He used that to gain
your trust! Have you seen what
this country has become? Every
city is under martial law. Don't
you care?
                                                            
                       OLD MAN
You all must leave. Time is short.
Find Smith. Find him and kill him
before the government has a chance
to capture him.
                                                            
                       DAN
No, we kill Umaslak.
                                                            
                       DEPI
What?
                                                            

48.

                       DAN
Senator Johnson does not know how
to control or manage the military.
If Umaslak has in fact been given
complete control and we kill him.
That will slow the search for
Smith greatly. You guys should
realize that it would be almost
impossible to locate Smith now. He
could be anywhere.
                                                            
                       SAM
He's right. I guess either target
we go after is a winner. If one
falls then the other can't
possibly suceed.
                                                            
 
INT. SECURITY CHECKPOINT OUTSIDE A MILITARY BASE - NIGHT
                                                            
Two soldiers stand by the gate. There is no traffic and it
is very quiet. (Words typed out on the bottom of the screen,
"Capital City" then are wiped away) One of the soldiers
stares off into space as the other one looks at his shoe. We
begin to hear a rumbling noise and things begin to make
noise as they are shaken. The two soldiers look into the
night and grab their weapons.
                                                            
We see several soldiers sitting at a control desk of some
sort looking at computer screens. Soldier #4 keeps tapping
his left headphone. Another soldier sitting next to him
looks over.
                                                            
                       SOLDIER #4
      (annoyed)
We've lost contact with gate 7.
Come on somebody answer me dammit.
                                                            
We focus on Soldier #5 sitting two men down from #4.
                                                            
                       SOLDIER #5
      (looking around)
I've lost contact with gates 1
through 6. What the hell is going
on with this equipment!
                                                            
The building begins to shake violently and an explosion goes
off that sends equipment and people to the ground. Soldier
#4 climbs up to his terminal and grabs his headset as people
scream and things begin to catch fire.
                                                            

49.

                       SOLDIER #4
      (quickly)
We are under attack! Repeat we are
under attack! Scramble all
personel! Lockdown the city!
                                                            
Cut to outside. Alarms are sounding and we see massive
amounts of troops running through the streets as more
explosions go off.
                                                            
Cut to the war room. A blue lit room with Umaslak, Senator
Johnson ans several high ranking officers.
                                                            
                       SENATOR JOHNSON
Who the hell set that alarm off?!
                                                            
Umaslak turns around and puts his headset on.
                                                            
                       SOLDIER #4
      (through the
       headset)
We have encontered unknown number
of enemy! Highly armed! They're
using artillery! (static)
                                                            
                       SENATOR JOHNSON
General I need to know what's
going on!
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Shut up Senator! I don't know shit
right now so get the hell out or
shut your face!
                                                            
Umaslak rushes over to a phone and picks it up.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
This is General Umaslak. How many
fighters and helicopters do you
have on standby right now? (Short
pause) Well send them all and wake
up the other 50 pilots!
                                                            
Cut to the streets. We see a line of soldiers firing into
the darkness as they slowly backup and take cover behind a
pile of rubble.
                                                            
Soldier #6 takes out his radio. More explosions continue to
go off as debris flies everywhere.
                                                            
                       SOLDIER #6
Where the hell is that air
support?! (Long pause) We need it
            (MORE)

50.

                       SOLDIER #6 (cont'd)
now or we're not going to make it!
(Longer pause) Do you copy!? Come
in base! We need air support or
we're dead!!
                                                            
Soldier #6 throws the radio down and looks at the other
troops with him.
                                                            
                       SOLDIER #6
We're on our own!
                                                            
Cut to the war room. Umaslak is on the radio.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Yes, I want it on the roof in ten
minuets. No, I'm going, just take
the gunner off. (Pause) Are yo
sure the new weapon is in place
and working? (Pause) Good.
                                                            
Outside the Capital Sky Scraper. We see troops firing at a
black blur that moves from soldier to soldier killing them
all.
                                                            
Cut to roof of Capital Sky Scraper. Umaslak walks to a
helicopter that has just landed. The gunner gets off and
Umaslak takes his place behind and srange looking minigun
that is hooked up to a generator that is glowing blue. After
securing himself Umaslak signals to the pilot and they take
off.
                                                            
Cut to a control room in the Capital Building. Several armed
soldiers are controlling the buildings security system. The
lights are out except for red flashing emergency lights.
                                                            
                       SOLDIER #7
      (into radio)
Do you copy?! The Capital Building
has been breached! (Pause) I copy
that!
                                                            
                       SOLDIER #7
      (to other soldiers)
Prepare for emergency lockdown!
                                                            
An alarm inside the capital building begins to sound. We see
massive amounts of troops flood into the lobby of the
building and take different routes upstairs as they quickly
search the building.
                                                            
Cut to Smith in the stairwell on the 12th floor. Noises can
be heard from the troops below in the same stairwell heading
up. Smith is out of breath and appears to be hurt.
                                                            

51.

Cut to the bottom of the stairwell. A soldier pauses and
looks up and sees Smith. He reaches for his radio and pulls
it up to his face.
                                                            
Cut to control room in capital building. Soldier #7 listens
to his radio.
                                                            
                       STAIRWELL SOLDIER
      (Over radio)
Target! West stairwell! All units
surround the target!
                                                            
                       SOLDIER #7
      (into the radio)
Alright you heard the man. I want
Bravo and Charlie team up the east
stairwell. Come down on the target
and end him!
                                                            
Cut to outside the gate. Depi's van screaches to a halt as
we see the city in chaos.
                                                            
Cut to inside the van.
                                                            
                       DEPI
Are we too late?
                                                            
Cut to the west stairwell. We see a door with a number 20 on
it. The door swings open and the troops on the other side
release a hail of gunfire into the stairwell. The troops on
the floor below begin to yell.
                                                            
                       STAIRWELL SOLDIER
Fuck man, what the fuck!
                                                            
The stairwell soldier looks up and we see Smith leaping from
floor to floor in the stairwell.
                                                            
Cut to the control room. Sodlier #7 Holds his radio to his
ear.
                                                            
                       SOLDIER #7
      (to other soldiers)
Alright, they can't catch him.
(Flips a switch) Delta 8 what is
your current position to the
capital building? (Long pause)
Copy, head back immediately we
have a possible assassination
attempt, over.
                                                            
Cut to Umaslak in the helicopter over the city. Umaslak
overhears the radio and galres at the pilot.
                                                            

52.

                       PILOT #3
      (into radio)
Roger, ETA about one minuet.
                                                            
We pull back and see the helicopter pull a U-turn and fly
off toward the capital building.
                                                            
Cut to outside the front of the Capital Building. Depi's van
slams into a wall now riddled with bullet holes. The four
men rush out of the van and into the empty lobby of the
building.
                                                            
                       JON
It's him.
                                                            
                       SAM
It has to be. Where is he going?
                                                            
                       DAN
Have them go up.
                                                            
                       DEPI
      (confused)
Huh?
                                                            
                       DAN
I said let's go up. He's probably
trying to kill off the Senator.
                                                            
The four men agree and run into the stairwell.
                                                            
Cut to the war room. Senator Johnson is looking out the
floor to ceiling window at the city. Suddenly a body flies
into view and crashes through the window. The Senator falls
on his back and quickly stands up to see Smith staring back
at him. Smith is extremely tired and bleeding from his head.
                                                            
                       SENATOR JOHNSON
Shit! How the hell did you get
past all of my sodliers?
                                                            
                       SMITH
Those used to be my soldiers. And
they still should be.
                                                            
                       SENATOR JOHNSON
      (scared)
Are you going to kill me?
                                                            
                       SMITH
What you think I made the trip
just to have a chat? I don't think
so.
                                                            

53.

Smith begins to walk slowly toward the Senator. We hear the
sound of a chopper and Smith stops walking. After the sound
fades Smith begins to walk again.
                                                            
                       SMITH
You are aware that these still are
not your troops right?
                                                            
                       SENATOR JOHNSON
Smith, face it. You are not in
control anymore!
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (extremely dark)
You're right, but you are not in
charge either. You gave total
military control to Umaslak didn't
you?
                                                            
                       SENATOR JOHNSON
Wha- What?
                                                            
                       SMITH
Do't lie Senator! You don't know
how to command a military. This is
obviously Umaslak's work. Massive
amounts of soldiers in one place.
If this city were nuked half you
army would be gone.
                                                            
The soldiers rush into the war room and Smith grabs Senator
Johnson from behind and grabs his forehead and pulls his
head to the side.
                                                            
                       SMITH
I'll kill him.
                                                            
                       STAIRWELL SOLDIER
Now hold on, you have no way out!
Smith give it up.
                                                            
All the other soldiers point their rifles at Smith and draw
closer very very slowly.
                                                            
Smith yanks on the Senator's head and the troops stop
moving. We see the mass of soldiers spread appart as Umaslak
walks up to the front and takes the place of the stairwell
soldier.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
      (laughing)
Did you really think you would
make it into my city and out
            (MORE)

54.

                       UMASLAK (cont'd)
alive?(Beat) Let that be a lesson to
you. These men already learned
that lesson.
                                                            
Umaslak motions to the door and the four men are brought
into the roof in glowing handcuffs. They are all thrown onto
their knees infront of Umaslak. Umaslak bends down and
releases Dan. Dan stands up and looks at the three men.
                                                            
                       DAN
Sorry...
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
      (smiling)
Please, don't act like you have
any real emotions or feelings!
                                                            
                       DEPI
Dan? What the hell?
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
You mean you didn't even have a
clue? Hahaha!
                                                            
                       DAN
Yes, it's true. I am a robot.
Model D-A-N 1923. I am the only
one of my kind. I'm used for
spying on terrorists like
yourselves.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
He's been feeding us information
the entire time. We've known where
you were and what you were saying
at all time. 1 9 2 3 Shutdown.
                                                            
Dan falls to the floor with a hard thud.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Now we have all three terroists in
custody. How about this man? Give
it up! It's over!
                                                            
                       SMITH
I'll jump! There is no way any of
you could follow me.
                                                            

55.

                       UMASLAK
That's true but the near one
thousand troops on the ground
would kill you pretty quickly
right?
                                                            
(Slow motion) Suddenly a chopper hovers down level with the
window behind Smith. Smith pushes the Senator towards the
troops and runs for the window. The minigun fires blue balls
of light that hit Smith and send blue bolts of lightning
through his body. Smith falls down knocked out before he
ever gets to the window.
                                                            
 
INT. DARK ROOM - DAY
                                                            
We see Jon hanging from the ceiling by is hands in shackles
that are glowing blue. Umaslak is sitting in a chair staring
at Jon. For the moment they are both silent. We notce that
Jon looks horribly beaten.
                                                            
                       JON
      (exausted)
Umaslak, it's been three days, I
haven't slept or ate. You know
everything already. Now go.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Ha! I beleive you. We have tracked
all of your activities and
everything, there is nothing you
haven't done that we haven't seen.
Thanks to Dan anyway.
                                                            
                       JON
Then why the FUCK am I here?! Do
you expect some sort of public
service out of me?! Why not kill
me and then this world because we
all know how this SHIT is going to
turn out!
                                                            
Umaslak punches Jon in the gut and Jon swings back and forth
for a few moments as Umaslak circles him and laughs, almost
gigling.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
I have full control of the
military and soon I will control
this government, it's just a
matter of time. So why wouldn't I
have some fun before I beat the
life out of your body? And Mister
            (MORE)

56.

                       UMASLAK (cont'd)
Depi, and mister Wilton of course.
You're looking at the worlds
greatest soldier here, I've left
nothing to chance.
                                                            
Umaslak cups his hand to his ear and pauses for a moment
before lowering his hand.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Well how disapointing, nobody here
to rescue you when I least expect
it. This time mister Stoove we win
and we will continue to win here
now and forever.
                                                            
                       JON
Is there any point to this shit or
can I stop paying attention to
your dumb ass?
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
With the completetion of our
Bio-Weapon project there will be
nothing to stop us from total
world domination! Who is going to
fuck with us then?
                                                            
                       JON
You mean Smith...?
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Of course I mean Smith! It has
always been his dream to control
the entire planet and it just so
happens that we share that same
dream. Once we find where we need
to take him-
                                                            
                       JON
Then what? He's going to bend over
and just let you and your
government control him?
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Exactly! He'll need our help to do
it.
                                                            
                       JON
Ha! Once you bring him to that
point he will kill all of us. And
that is if he doesn't become
overwhelmed and all the energy is
released destroying the planet, so
            (MORE)

57.

                       JON (cont'd)
I suppose that the end to that
isn't much different except you
kill everyone a whole lot faster.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
You don't know what you're dealing
with Stoove.
                                                            
                       JON
No, you don't know what you're
fuckin' dealing with! Your damn
head is too big to even consider
the possibility that YOU WILL
LOSE!
                                                            
Umaslak punches Jon in the face and as we see the blood
splatter we fade to black. A moment later we fade back in to
see Depi in the same spot Jon was in with Umaslak. Umaslak
sits backwards on a chair leaning in close to Depi as he
speaks.
                                                            
                       DEPI
Why did we do all that? Huh, you
would really have to ask the other
men to get a real answer to that
question. We all have our reasons,
whatever keeps us going I guess.
There isn't much more to say,
General.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
You seem like you have lost your
spark, mister Depi. Why is that?
                                                            
                       DEPI
At this point there isn't anything
more I can do. You'ce made up your
mind and I find it obvious now
that our attempts are worthless.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
How very true.
                                                            
                       DEPI
Just tell me something. Where are
you taking Smith too? I haven't
figured that part out yet.
                                                            

58.

                       UMASLAK
You'll see soon enough. We are
bringing you to the event. You,
Wilton, and Stoove will be the
first to die for your crimes
against this government.
                                                            
 
INT. HANGAR - NIGHT
                                                            
In the hangar we see, Umaslak, Depi, Jon, Sam, Senator
Johnson, Smith, and several soldiers fully armed. We see the
three men in glowing shackles and Smith completely free.
                                                            
                       JON
So, you're letting Smith roam free
around here? I was right you do
have a death wish.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Quiet Stoove.
                                                            
                       SMITH
Actually Stoove, I have decided
that having the governments help
wont be so bad after all, I mean
we all know that I can't "take
over the world" alone.
                                                            
                       SMITH (VO)
      (laughing)
Those fools, the moment the power
becomes mine, it's all going to be
over and nothing you say will
change their minds!
                                                            
                       JON (VO)
You're right, it will be over.
                                                            
Dan enters the view.
                                                            
                       DAN
      (to Umaslak)
Sir, the dropships have been
prepared. Anytime you want to
leave.
                                                            
We see Umaslak motion to the soldiers and they all board the
same dropship.
                                                            
                       DAN
      (to Umaslak)
Where shall I seat the traitors?
                                                            

59.

                       DEPI
Traitors?! You're not even human
you fu-
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
Chain them somewhere near the
back. I don't want to see their
faces the whole time.
                                                            
                       DEPI
Hey asshole.
                                                            
Umaslak turns around and gives Depi a death look as he is
chained to some glowing bars in the back of the plane.
                                                            
                       DEPI
Where the hell are you taking us?
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
We figure that the point will be
located at the exact spot where
man was created. It's across the
ocean.
                                                            
We cut to the plane flying over the ocean. We hear radio
chatter but can't make out exactly what is being said.
                                                            
 
INT. DESERT - DAY
                                                            
All of the men exit the dropship. They all move to a small
point that has a circle of stones around it. We see Smith
walk to the center of the stones, close his eyes and face up
to the sky. Dan stands behind Sam, Depi, and Jon. Umaslak,
the senator and a few soldies stand on the other side of
Smith.
                                                            
                       SAM
You don't have approval of the
rest of the senate on this project
do you senator?
                                                            
                       SENATOR JOHNSON
What? And why would that matter,
sir?
                                                            
                       SAM
I guess it doesn't at this point.
                                                            
                       JON
How is this supposed to work?
                                                            

60.

                       UMASLAK
From our understanding of the
writings we found, when the sun
hits the top of the sky, it should
happen. Our men arrived a few days
ago and prepared the site for us.
                                                            
                       SOLDIER
      (looking at watch)
About another minuet until noon,
sir.
                                                            
In slow motion we see Umaslak look at the sky and then cut
to Dan who in real time frees Sam, Depi, and Jon.
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
What the hell are you doing!
                                                            
Jon dives and Umaslak and drags him to the ground and they
both roll until Umaslak throws Jon off.
                                                            
Sam and Depi stop in their tracks as everything begins to
shake. We focus on Smith who begins to rise above the ground
and is hit by giant beam of light from the sky. The entire
view becomes white and when it all clears everyone is
scattered on the ground with Smith hovering a few feet
above.A blue steam is flowing off Smith and spheres of blue
light are also cirling around his body.
                                                            
                       SMITH
      (voice stressed)
Umaslak! You... gave me the...
power I have been... l-looking
for, all my... life. Time to...
die!
                                                            
                       UMASLAK
      (scared)
Fire!
                                                            
The soldiers scattered around get to their feet and begin
firing blue knockout rounds at Smith. The spheres of light
around Smith move and reflect the rounds right back at the
soldiers. The soldiers get hit and go down silently.
                                                            
                       DEPI
      (quietly)
What has been done...
                                                            
Smith slowly lowers to the ground and begins walking toward
Jon.
                                                            

61.

                       SMITH
You...wrecked my plans... my...
life... and then... you... tr...
tried... to kill... kill me.
                                                            
Smith falls to his knees and screams. We pull back and we
see a massive explosion with smith at the center. The screen
fades to black.
