FADE IN:

EXT. OVAL OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
AGENT CARTER, tall, athletic, approaches the oval office and
shows his I.D. to the two AGENTS standing at the entrance
and enters.
                                                            
INT: OVAL OFFICE
                                                            
PRESIDENT WINSTON, medium size, average height, and AGENT
JOHNSON, atheletic, average height, are sitting at the
presidents' desk.
                                                            
                       CARTER
Excuse me sir.
                                                            
                       PRESIDENT
What can I do for you Carter?
                                                            
                       CARTER
Sir, we just intercepted a coded
message.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
What does it say?
                                                            
                       CARTER
That there is going to be a
assassination attempt.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
Are you sure?
                                                            
                       CARTER
Yes sir. It's suppose to be here,
and now.
                                                            
He kicks Johnson out his chair and jumps over the presidents
desk and grabs him. Johnson gets up and pulls out his gun
and points it at Carter.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
What the hell are you doing?
                                                            
                       CARTER
Nothin'. Just havin' a li'l fun.
                                                            
                       PRESIDENT
Listen here son. Just put the gun
down. There's no need to do this.
                                                            

2.

                       CARTER
Man even in the face of death
you're still a shitty politician.
That didn't convince me to do
nothin'. Actually, now I wanna
shoot you more now.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
Don't do nothing stupid Carter.
                                                            
                       CARTER
Hello? I'm sittin' here wit' a gun
to the presidents head, and he
says don't do nothin stupid. It's
a li'l late fa that.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
You're right. But this can end
without any bloodshed. Plus there
is no way for you to get out of
here.
                                                            
                       CARTER (Laughing)
Seriously? Do you really think I'd
be stupid enough to do this if I
didn't know it was a way out?
Right Mr. President?
                                                            
                       PRESIDENT
I don't know what you are talking
about.
                                                            
                       CARTER
You know there's multiple ways of
tellin' if someone is lying. For
instance. Their pulse is
accelerated.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
Even if you could get out of here.
There is nowhere you can go that I
wont find you.
                                                            
                       CARTER
Mr. President it's time fo' me to
go. I'll give you one last chance
to save yours and Agent Johnsons
lives. Tell me where da exit is.
                                                            
                       PRESIDENT
Alright. There's a emergency
button under the presidents desk.
Once you push the button it's
voice activated. I'll enter the

                       PRESIDENT (cont'd)
code.
                                                            
                       CARTER
First tell Agent Johnson to put
his gun down.
                                                            
                       PRESIDENT
Do as he says.
                                                            
Johnson puts his gun down and kicks it up against the far
wall. Carter moves over to the presidents desk while still
holding the president. He feels under the desk for the
button and pushes it. The desk moves back and a passage
opens where the desk was.
                                                            
                       CARTER
This was fun and all, but I think
it's time to make my exit.
                                                            
He shoots Johnson in the chest and throws the president down
on the ground and goes through the passage. It closes behind
him. The president goes over to check on Johnson.
                                                            
                       PRESIDENT
Agent Johnson, are you alright?
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
Yes sir, I have my vest on.
                                                            
                       PRESIDENT
Why did he let me go?
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
I dont know.
                                                            
 
INT. C.I.A. HEADQUARTERS SPC. AGENT DANIELS OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
Nice office with a large window behind a big wooden desk.
With computer, video phone, telephone, bookshelf with books,
black leather chair and other types of high-tech gadgets.
SPC. AGENT DANIELS very sophisticated, determined, smart guy
in his early 40's is sitting and looking through some
papers.
                                                            
                       SECRETARY (o.s. on intercom)
Sir, there is an Agent Johnson
here to see you.
                                                            
                       DANIELS

Johnson walks in and sits down.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
You know I really don't want you
in on this investigation. But the
president insisted.
                                                            
                       SECRETARY (o.s. on intercom)
Sir I have those papers you
requested.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Bring them in.
                                                            
The SECRETARY, athletic, average height, in her late
twenties walks in and hands him some papers.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Has the field agent reported in
yet?
                                                            
                       SECRETARY
No sir. I'll send him in as soon
as he does.
                                                            
She leaves out the office.
                                                            
EXT. DANIELS' OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
ERIC AUSTIN, athletic, in his late twenties, was standing
outside the door and startles her.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
      (laughing)
My bad, I didn't mean to scare
you.
                                                            
                       SECRETARY
You shouldn't sneak up on people
like that.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
It's my job.
                                                            
                       SECRETARY
Not in here.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
What's goin' on in there?
                                                            
                       SECRETARY
You wanna know if he's in a good
mood?
                                                            

5.

                       AUSTIN
Yeah, something like that.
                                                            
                       SECRETARY
Considering the case he's working
on, he's actually in a good mood.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
That's good to hear. So when you
gon let me take you out?
                                                            
                       SECRETARY
Somewhere between when hell
freezes and pigs fly.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Playin' hard to get. I like that.
                                                            
                       SECRETARY
I'm not playin' hard to get. I'm
just hard for you to get.
                                                            
He walks into Daniels' office.
                                                            
INT. DANIELS' OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
Johnson and Daniels was sitting and talking.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Where the hell have you been? You
was posed to report in 2 hours
ago!
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Sir I had some late leads that I
was following.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
What did you find out?
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
Nothing conclusive. The leads all
have came to a dead end, but I
still have a couple I have to
check out.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Then why the hell are you still
standing here? Get to work.
                                                            
Austin leaves.

EXT. DANIELS' OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
The secretary was laughing.
                                                            
                       AUSTIN
That was real funny.

                       SHOOTER
I assume you are here for the same
reason we are. To pull a job.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
But you don't know for a fact?
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
Not for a fact, but considering
who we are...
                                                            
                       SMOKES
Then I don't need to be askin' you

7.

                       TWIST
Are you really Smokes?
                                                            
                       SMOKES
Why you sound so suprised?
                                                            
                       TANK
Cause he thought you was a dude.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
So no-one knows why I'm here for

CALVIN WILLIAMS, tall. athletic, mid-thirties walks in.
Shooter and Smokes grab their guns and point them at him.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
Hold up . I'm the reason you all
are here. Put the guns down and
I'll explain everything.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
Take your piece off and slide it
over to me.
                                                            
Calvin takes off his holster and slids it over to Shooter.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
One of you want to go over and
search him?
                                                            
                       TWIST
There is no need, he doesn't have
another weapon on him.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
Want you come and search me so we
can get on with this.
                                                            
Shooter goes over and searches him.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER (to Twist)
How did you know that?
                                                            
                       CALVIN

                       SHOOTER
Go ahead.
                                                            
Calvin goes and sits down at the table. Smokes and Shooter
put their guns back on the table and sit down.

                       RIP

                       TANK

                       CALVIN
Alright , calm down. We need to
get down to business. But first I
need to know if Smokes wants in on

                       RIP
That's good 'cause I'm only half
assed.
                                                            
She smiles and he smiles back.
                                                            

10.

                       TANK
If you two are done, Calvin can go
ahead.
                                                            
                       RIP
My bad. Go ahead.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
Well my employer would like for
you all to pull a job, it's one
that would require all of your
combined skills, which is the
reason why all of you are here.
Including your skills Smokes.
                                                            
                       TWIST
There is only a 10 places in the
world that would require all of
our skills, and only 2 in the
united states well 3 if you count
HardCo Inc. Which if I had to
guess is the one you want us to
do.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
How do you know that?
                                                            
                       RIP
Do you always ask so many
questions? If you aint notice.
Twist is some kinda genius or
geek, nerd, or dweeb...
                                                            
                       TWIST
How do you know who I am? I'm not
a dweeb.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
That's not relevant. What is
relevant, is that this job is very
important to my employer, and he
will make it worth your while.
                                                            
                       TANK
So what's the plan?
                                                            
                       CALVIN
Everything you need for right now
is where it needs to be.
                                                            
An alarm goes off. Rip pulls out a T.V. screen.
                                                            

11.

                       RIP
Uh oh. We got company.
                                                            
                       DANIELS (o.s.)
This is Spc. Agent Daniels, Carter
come out with your hands up.
                                                            
They drop to the floor and get up against the walls of the
cabin.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
      (pointing his gun
       at Calvin)
This was a setup.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
I would not set you up. Think
about it. There looking for
someone name Carter. Is that any
of you alls aliases?
                                                            
                       TWIST
Anybody got a plan?
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
      (Cocking his guns)
Yeah, I got a plan.
                                                            
                       TWIST
I was thinking more on the line of
us, NOT getting shot.
                                                            
                       TANK (to Rip)
I know you gotta plan.
                                                            
                       RIP
Do fat people like double
cheeseburgers?
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
You want to fill the rest of us
in?
                                                            
Rip pulls out a detenator.
                                                            
                       RIP
Nope. Just follow my lead.
                                                            
He pushes the detenator and there was a series of explosions
outside. They get up and rush out with their guns drawn.
                                                            

12.

EXT. CABIN - NIGHT
                                                            
The agents were scattered about everywhere. Johnson and
Daniels saw them exit out the cabin.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
They are trying to escape!
                                                            
                       DANIELS (on radio)
Get yourselves together, and don't
let them get away.
                                                            
Agents start shooting at them.
                                                            
                       DANIELS (to Johnson)
Lets move.
                                                            
The bullets is not getting close to them.
                                                            
                       AGENT (o.s. on radio to Daniels)
Sir, we can't get a good shot. The
smoke and fire is blocking our
view.
                                                            
                       DANIELS (on radio)
Move in, and cover the back
                                                            
Some agents move in, and others go around the back.
                                                            
Shooter, Smokes, Twist, Calvin, Tank, and Rip move to the
back and get in there cars.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
We will meet back up as soon as
possible. There is packages where
each of you are staying.
                                                            
Rip pulls out another detenator.
                                                            
                       RIP
I got one mo' trick up my sleeve.
                                                            
Another series of explosions, but this time it clears a path
for their cars and blocks the path of the impeding agents.
They drive off.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Son-of-a-bitch, we was so close.
      (on radio)
Get the clean up teams out here
and make sure you get every piece
of evidence that you can.
                                                            

13.

The cabin explodes and knocks them off their feet.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON (to Daniels)
      (getting up off
       the ground)
It seems like they were expecting
us.
                                                            
 
INT. C.I.A. HEADQUARTERS SPC. AGENT DANIELS OFFICE - DAY
                                                            
Daniels was sitting at his desk looking over some papers,
when Johnson walks in.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
What can I do for you?
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
I just got a few questions.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
O.k. I knew this was coming. I'll
answer your questions the best way
I can.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
How did you know about Carter?
                                                            
                       DANIELS
He worked for us before being
transfered to the secret service.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
That didn't answer my question.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
I told you, I would answer your
question the best way I can.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
If I'm going to help with this
investigation I need to know
everything.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
I'm telling you everything I know.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
Maybe I should go to the
president..
                                                            

14.

                       DANIELS
Alright. I have been after
Carters' boss for the last three
years.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
If you been after his boss for
three years, then you shoulda
known about Carter sooner.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
That's right, but we are after
Rip, who is Carters' boss.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
Rip?
                                                            
                       DANIELS
I take it you heard of him?
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
Yes. There is no proof that he
exist. He is a ghost. No-one knows
what he looks like...
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Let me stop you there. I know he
exist. I have seen him. Thats how
I know about Carter.

Looks through the peephole and opens the door. Smokes and
Calvin come in and goes to sit in the livingroom.
                                                            
                       CALVIN (to Rip)
You mind telling us what we doin
here?
                                                            
                       SHOOTER (to Calvin)
I thought you wanted us to meet
here. Atleast that's what was said
in my package.
                                                            
                       RIP
I did that, cause I didn't think
ya'll would come if ya'll knew it
was me. Plus after what happened
last time we was together, I
wasn't trying to go through that
again.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
I see you got trust issues also.
                                                            
Walks over to the window and looks out and then turns
around.
                                                            
                       RIP (to Calvin)
Go ahead so we can get on wit'

you needed was in the package.
                                                            
                       RIP
There's mo'.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
What, besides the fact that you
tried to assassinate the
president.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
That was you!?
                                                            
                       TANK
You did what!
                                                            

16.

                       SHOOTER
That's it, I'm out of here.
                                                            
Shooter gets up and gets ready to leave.
                                                            
                       RIP
Why would you bring that up? That
aint got shit to do wit' this!
Plus it wasn't me, it was an
associate.
                                                            
Walking up on Calvin.
                                                            
                       RIP (contuing)
The only reason I could think of,
is that you trying to take some
heat off you, 'cause of what
happened the other day.
                                                            
Shooter stops and turns back around.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER (to Rip)
I got a question. Why would he try
to set us up? I cover my tracks,
I've never left any evidence or
anything.
                                                            
                       RIP
And you think I have? Ya'll want
me out, I can leave.
                                                            
                       TANK
If he leaves I'm gone too.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
Everybody calm down. We need to
think this through. The reason I
brought it up is...
                                                            
                       TWIST
What is there to think about?
Don't nobody trust anybody, we
wont be able to do this job if we
think somebody is trying to pull a
double cross. Plus I'm trying to
figure out as well why you would
bring that up. Even though it's
irrelevent.
                                                            
                       RIP
He's right. Alright I'm gon be
real wit' ya'll. I did try to have
the president assassinated , but
it was before I was contacted for

Shooter walks back over to them.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
So you saying those guys was after
you?
                                                            
                       RIP
I didn't have shit to do wit'
that.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
How do you know they wasn't after
you if you tried to assassinate
the president.
                                                            
                       RIP
'Cause like I said I didn't
actually do it. It was an
associate.
                                                            
                       TANK
Where's Calvin?
                                                            
They start looking around the room for Calvin. Rip goes to
the bathroom, and stands outside the door and listens.
Calvin was in there on the phone.
                                                            
                       CALVIN (o.s.)
Yes sir, everything is goin as
planned.
                                                            
(beat)
                                                            
                       CALVIN (contuing)
I told them, and he got a little
upset.
                                                            
(beat)
                                                            
                       CALVIN (contuing)
Yes sir.
      (He hangs up the
       phone.)
                                                            
Calvin walks out the bathroom and is startled by Rip.
                                                            
                       RIP
Should I kill you now or do you
want me to wait 'till lata.

                       CALVIN

I'll keep this to myself.
                                                            
                       CALVIN

Smokes walks back towards them.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
What's goin' on back here.
                                                            
                       RIP
Nothin' he was just in the
bathroom, and I need to get in
there next.
      (Walks in the
       bathroom.)
                                                            
Smokes and Calvin walk back into the livingroom.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER (to Calvin)
Where the hell was you at?
                                                            
                       SMOKES
He was in the bathroom.
                                                            
Rip walks back into the livingroom.
                                                            
                       TWIST
I was just wondering about
something. Do anybody know why
Smokes is really here?
                                                            
                       SMOKES
Are you insinuating something?
                                                            
                       TWIST
No offense but we are all career
criminals, but you are not.
                                                            
The phone rings. Rip answers the phone.
                                                            
                       RIP
Yeah.

                       TANK
What's goin' on?
                                                            
                       RIP
Somebody is askin' to many
questions.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
We should split up.
                                                            
                       RIP
Shooter, Twist, and Tank take the
fire escape. Me and Smokes are
goin' to da roof.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
The roof? You are going to be
trapped on the roof.
                                                            
                       RIP
I got a plan. We'll meet up at
Spot C.
                                                            
                       TWIST
Why are we sneaking off if they
don't know what we look like?
                                                            
                       RIP
How sho are you they didn't see us
at the cabin?
                                                            
                       TWIST
Lets see accounting for the fire
and the smoke, the wind velocity,
time of day...
                                                            
Shooter goes out to the fire escape. Smokes grabs Twist and
they go out to the fire escape, while Rip and Smokes go up
the stairs to the roof.

There's a bomb in da Ritz Hotel!
      (He hangs up the
       phone.)
Lets go.
                                                            
                       TWIST
I think we shouldn't all leave at
the same time, and leave out
through different parts of the
hotel.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
He's right, but whoever don't meet
up at Spot C, I'm coming for you,
because this shit can't be a
coinsidence.
                                                            
Alarm sounds and they all leave the roof.

But it's me.
                                                            
                       BOUNCER

Rip places his finger on the scanner the bouncer was
holding. The bouncers P.O.V. it scans his finger and reads
the name L. Austin.

court, batting cages. CANDICE, early twenties, very
beautiful young woman walks up to them to escort them to the

                       TWIST
Not one as beautiful as her.
                                                            
                       CANDICE
Thank you hon.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
Excuse me?
                                                            
                       TWIST

                       TANK
Are you sure this is where we

                       SHOOTER (to Candice)
What are we doing in here?
                                                            
Candice keeps walking and stops at the door. Shooter pulls
out his gun and Candice closes the door.
                                                            
                       RIP (v.o.)
You don't need that Shooter. If I
was up to somethin' I woulda had
the bouncer take your weapons. I'm
just takin' all precautions. After
we keep gettin' all this unwanted
attention.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
So what do we do?
                                                            
                       RIP
Just step in that machine in front
of you. Don't worry it wont hurt
you. All it does, is give a body
scan to make sho there's no
transmitters inside your bodies.
                                                            
Each one walks into the machine one at a time and the
machine scans them.
                                                            
 
EXT. C.I.A. HEADQUARTERS SPC. AGENT DANIELS OFFICE - NIGHT
                                                            
Daniels and Johnson was sitting at his desk going over some
papers.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
Have you been able to triangulate
the signal yet?
                                                            
                       DANIELS
No. The thing about that is, I
think he knows we're tracking him,
and he's playing a cat and mouse
game with us.
                                                            

24.

                       JOHNSON
I thought that too. I was
wondering why we kept getting his
signal so easily.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
We haven't had his signal since
the hotel.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
Something don't make sense to me.
Why is he toying with us?
                                                            
                       DANIELS
It's all a game with him. I have a
theory. What if Rip and Carter are
one and the same?
                                                            
                       JOHNSON (laughing)
You kidding, right?
                                                            
                       DANIELS
I've been withholding...
                                                            
The phone rings and Johnson answers it.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
This is Daniels. What! Get your
guys ready we wont lose them this
time. Come on Johnson we got a
bead on the signal. He's at the
musuem of art and history.
                                                            
EXT. MUSUEM OF ART AND HISTORY - NIGHT
                                                            
Jonhson and Daniels arrive at the museum. The G.R.U.D.G.E.
GROUP a group of about 7 specially trained soldiers and
other agents have the building surrounded. Daniels walks up
to the Group leader.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
What you got for me?
                                                            
                       GRUDGE GROUP LEADER
So far we have detected 7 persons
in diferent parts of the building.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
7. It seems they picked up a few
more recruits.
                                                            

25.

                       DANIELS
Lets move in. I would like to take
them alive if possible.
                                                            
                       GRUDGE GROUP LEADER
Yes sir.
      (on radio)
Lets move in. Use extreme force
only if necassary.
                                                            
They enter in through the side door. Shots are fired as soon
as they enter and they take cover and return fire, but they
can't see where the shots are coming from.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Can anybody see where the shots
are coming from?
                                                            
Agents come through the windows on the first floor and take
out the people that was shooting.
                                                            
                       AGENT (on radio)
First floor is secure.
                                                            
The agents move up to the second floor. The first agents
that reach the second floor throw smoke grenades then
advance. As soon as they enter into the open they come under
fire and start dropping.
                                                            
                       AGENT (on radio)
We need back up! Be careful they
are using armor piercing
ammunition!
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Lets move. Get up there quick, and
keep your eyes open. Forget what I
said, take them out by any means
necassary.
                                                            
Agents advance on the second floor. The MASKED PEOPLE move
up to the third floor and take positions behind a man made
barricade.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON (to Daniels)
Somethings not right.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
I noticed that too. This is a
suicide mission for these guys and
that is not Rip's M.O.
                                                            
The agents have them surrounded.
                                                            

26.

                       DANIELS
Give it up, you don't have no
where to go.
                                                            
The masked people throw there weapons towards the agents and
put there hands up. The agents advance on them.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
Stand down, it's a trap!
                                                            
As soon as he says that there is a explosion that takes out
the advancing agents and the masked people. Daniels walks
over to them and take off part of the mask that wasn't blown
off.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
I can't believe this, it was all a
fuckin setup. Get the cleanup
crews in here.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
But why?
                                                            
Grudge group leader walks over to Daniels.
                                                            
                       GRUDGE GROUP LEADER
Sir, I just got intell that the
federal reserve was hit. I mean
completly cleaned out.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Damnit. I should of known. Get
over there and search with in a 10
mile radius. Leave no stone
unturned and any little petty
criminal bring them in.
                                                            
                       GRUDGE GROUP LEADER
Yes sir. One more thing. The media
is outside.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Johnson take care of things here,
while I go out and handle the
media.
                                                            
Daniels walks outside to talk to the media.

Different media sources was out trying to interview the
agents when DENISE MITCHEL young, aggresive, beautiful,
woman spots Daniels, and tries to get over to him but is
stopped by one of the agents.
                                                            
                       DENISE
Agent Daniels can I have a word
with you?
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Oh great. Let her through. What
can I do for you Ms. Mitchel?
                                                            
                       DENISE
Can you tell me what happened
here?
                                                            
                       DANIELS
All I can say is there was a break
in here and we apprehened every
suspect.
                                                            
                       DENISE
What about the robbery of the
federal reserve at the same time?
                                                            
                       DANIELS
How did you know about that?
                                                            
                       DENISE
I make it my business to know. So
could you answer the question?
                                                            
                       DANIELS
I have no comment.
                                                            
He walks off.
                                                            
                       DENISE
Well, what do you have to say
about this Rip guy?
                                                            
                       DANIELS
No comment.
                                                            
 
INT. SPOT C - NIGHT
                                                            
Rip, Twist, Smokes, Tank, Shooter, and Calvin was sitting in
the V.I.P. area talking and having drinks. The V.I.P. area
is secluded on the second floor and in the back of Spot C.
It has security monitors of views of the outside of the club

white leather furniture, a marble bartop, the bar is fully
stocked with exspensive liquor, the floor is black marble
with white animal skin rugs.
                                                            
On the T.V.
                                                            
                       DENISE (on T.V.)
We're here at the musuem of art
and history. Where there was a
group of people armed with
military style weapons, was trying
to rob it. What we have so far is
all the people was either killed
or captured. We tried to get a
word with the lead investigator
earlier, but he was not very
co-perative. All he said was
everything is under control. I
asked him about the robbery of the
federal reserve at the same exact
time of this robbery, and he said
no comment. He also said this Rip
guy was not a suspect at this
time. This is Denise Mitchel,
reporting from the musuem of art
and history.
                                                            
                       CALVIN (to Rip)
That was a good plan. I wonder how
did you know they would come after
them and not us?
                                                            
                       SMOKES
And how you have so little value
of life.
                                                            
                       RIP
Well I figured they had to be
trackin' us some kinda way. So I
figured if I could send out a
similar signal, it would give us
ample time to do what we had to.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
What about those people that was
killed at the museum?
                                                            
                       RIP
They knew what they was gettin'
into, and I told them if they get
caught it's their decision on how
to go out. I neva once told them
to go out like some savages, it
            (MORE)

                       RIP (cont'd)
was their decision.
                                                            
                       TANK
Plus if it wasn't fo them, we
coulda been the ones dead or
caught. Now tell me which one
would you rather it be? Us or
them?
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
I don't see why you so worried
about people you don't know.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
Excuse me for having a heart. I
haven't been doing this as long as
ya'll have.
                                                            
                       RIP
'Nough of the bullshit, lets count
this money, split it up and get
ready fo' da next job. If Calvin
has da hit fo' us.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
As a matter of fact I do. Since I
know Rip has put doubts in you
alls mind about me, my boss will
contact each of you himself.
                                                            
Calvin gets up, grabs his share of the money and heads for
the exit.
                                                            
                       RIP
And where do you think you goin'?
                                                            
Calvin stops.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
I'm done, my boss told me to leave
the country.
                                                            
                       RIP
I don't think so. I need to keep
an eye on you.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
Why are you worried about me? I
thought you was the best. You
shouldn't be all concerned with
me, there is something else you
need to worry about.
                                                            

30.

                       RIP
I didn't get where I am by
trustin' folk all willy nilly, and
I ain't 'bout to start now.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
Well I don't know what to tell
you. I'm not staying, because if I
do, he will kill me.
                                                            
Rip walks up to him.
                                                            
                       TANK
Hold up Rip. Do you think you need
to kill him?
                                                            
                       RIP
I don't think I need to...
                                                            
                       TWIST
But you want to. If he was setting
us up, don't you think we would of
already been caught.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
Plus I'm not stupid enough to set
you all up.
                                                            
                       RIP
I guess you got a point. Get da
hell outta here before I change my
mind.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
Well my boss will be in contact
with each of you within the next
24 hours.
                                                            
He walks out.
                                                            
                       RIP
Da rest of you can leave as well.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
You don't mind if I stick around?
                                                            
                       RIP
Don't you got somethin' betta to
do? Go out and celebrate, get you
some pussy or somethin'. Why you
wanna hang around here?
                                                            

31.

                       SHOOTER
For one, I don't trust you, and I
wanna keep an eye on you.
                                                            
                       RIP
I ain't suprised. Be my guest, but
you can't stay up here. I got otha
business to handle.
                                                            
They get up and leave, and Rip goes and sits down at his
desk and gets on the phone.
                                                            
INT. SPOT C DOWNSTAIRS - NIGHT
                                                            
Shooter, Smokes, Twist, were sitting at a table over in a
corner.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
So we gon hang around here all
night?
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
You can leave if you want, but
somethings not right.
                                                            
                       TWIST
I can't help but to ask why you
think that.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
Lets see. First, we all get
together to pull some job for a
guy we never met. Second, this guy
is supposed to be the best
criminal in the world. So why is
he doing this job with us?
                                                            
                       SMOKES
I think you should be askin' him
that.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
You right. I'm going to go up and
here and find out.
                                                            
Shooter gets up and goes to the V.I.P. area. Rip was gone.
Shooter goes back down to where Smokes and Twist are.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
Did he come through here?
                                                            
                       SMOKES
Who?
                                                            

32.

                       SHOOTER
Rip. When I got up there he was
gone.
                                                            
                       TWIST
Well he didn't come through here.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
Come on, we are going to go look
for him.
                                                            
                       TWIST
I'm good. Ya'll can go look for
him, but from what I know about
him, you wont find him.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
I'm goin' with you.
                                                            
Twist sits there smiling.
                                                            
 
EXT. ABANDONED WAREHOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
Calvin drives into an abandoned warehouse.
                                                            
INT. ABANDONED WAREHOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
Doesn't look so abandoned on the inside. KEY, average height
and weight, with a chip on his shoulder, and LOOKOUT, short,
young, and atheletic, sitting on the couch watching T.V.
TINY, a tall and muscular guy, with an meanstreak to match,
and BIG-D, short, muscular guy who thinks he is very big,
sitting at a table playing cards. There is surveillance
equipment everywhere, computers, and enough weapons for a
small army. Calvin gets out the car.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
What the hell is going on here?
                                                            
                       LOOKOUT
What's up boss. We was just takin'
a break.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
You of all people shouldn't be
taking no breaks. All I ask for
you to do is lookout. Why the hell
is your name lookout?
                                                            
                       LOOKOUT
'Cause...
                                                            

33.

Calvin walks over to the table.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
I know you are not about to say
why they call you Lookout.
                                                            
                       LOOKOUT
No, I was gon say we been up all
night and we needed a break.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
I don't want to hear your excuses.
We need to make sure Rip didn't
follow me. He could be here right
now. So do your job and shut the
hell up.
                                                            
They hear a noise outside. Lookout goes over to the computer
and checks the surveillance cameras.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
What do you see?
                                                            
                       LOOKOUT
I don't see nothin'.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
It's him, I know it. I can feel
it.
                                                            
                       KEY
Why you so 'noid? We here and you
don't have nothin' to worry about.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
That is not much of a consolation.
                                                            
They grab their guns and they start to look around.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
Where are you all going?
                                                            
                       BIG-D
To see if we see him.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
What are you stupid? Don't you
watch movies? If we split up we
are dead.
                                                            
                       TINY
And you asked if we is stupid.
                                                            

34.

                       CALVIN
You all just don't know who you
are dealing with. We are goin to
stay here and take cover untill he
shows himself.
                                                            
Rip walks in and sits at the table. They walk up on him with
their guns drawn on him.
                                                            
                       RIP
Ya'll sho got a way of showin' a
guy some hospitality.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
What the hell are you doing here?
                                                            
                       RIP
I was gon ask you da same
question. Want ya'll take a seat.
I'm not really in da mood to have
no straps in my face.
                                                            
                       KEY
Do you think we care what you
think?
                                                            
                       CALVIN
Put them down. If he was going to
do something he would have already
done it.
                                                            
They lower their guns, but don't put them away.
                                                            
                       RIP
So are you goin' to tell me why

                       CALVIN
I have my own opperations, and I
just came to pack up my stuff and
get out of town.
                                                            
                       RIP
Why don't ya'll have a seat. Ya'll

                       CALVIN
What the hell do you want? I got a

                       RIP
I wanna know who's afta us, and
where do I find'em?
                                                            

35.

                       CALVIN
Nobody is after you all.
                                                            
Rip stands up, and they put their guns on him.
                                                            
                       RIP
Don't get scared, I'm leavin'.
                                                            
As soon as he walks pass Calvin he grabs him from behind.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
I swear I don't know nothing.
                                                            
                       RIP
I didn't even ask you nothin' else

                       BIG-D

                       RIP
This doesn't concern ya'll. So if

                       BIG-D
You got some big balls walkin' up

somethin' and make it outta here
alive.
                                                            
                       TINY

                       RIP (laughing)
I can't believe ya'll willin' to
give ya'll life up, fo' this bitch
ass nigga.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
It's called loyalty. I know you
haven't heard of it.
                                                            
Lookout was standing there trembling with his gun pointed at
Rip.
                                                            
                       RIP
Looks like yo' boy Lookout, ain't
to sho 'bout bein' too loyal. He
shakin' so bad looks like he's
havin' a seizure.
                                                            

36.

                       LOOKOUT
I ain't shakin', I just gotta go
pee.
                                                            
                       RIP
So ya'll really...
                                                            
Rip throws a metal spike at the barrel of Big-D's and Tiny's
gun and it sticks in it. He kicks Key's gun out his hand
while still holdin Calvin in a headlock. He takes Calvin's
gun and throws Calvin on the floor. Big-D, Key and Tiny
attack him, but he is too quick and dodges their attack and
hits them with an counter attack. Lookout was still standing
there shaking with his gun pointed in the same direction.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
      (getting up off
       the floor)
Don't just stand there, shoot his
ass.
                                                            
Rip is still fighting Tiny, Key, and Big-D. Tiny picks up a
steel pole and comes at Rip with it. Rip dodges it and hits
him with a kick and knocks him out. Key tries to hit him
from behind but he gets caught with a roundhouse kick and is
knocked out. Big-D gets up off the floor and takes his shirt
off showing his muscular physique.
                                                            
                       CALVIN (to Lookout)
Shoot him!
                                                            
                       BIG-D
No! I got this.
      (to Rip)
I heard about you. I was wondering
if you was as good as people say.
                                                            
                       RIP
I hate to toot my own horn since
I'm so humble... Naw I ain't, I'm
betta then what people say.
                                                            
                       BIG-D
I would like to find out.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
Are you crazy? He's going to kill
your ass. Lookout, shoot him!
                                                            
Lookout lowers his gun.
                                                            

37.

                       LOOKOUT
I can't. I've never killed anybody
before.
                                                            
                       CALVIN
It's so hard to find good help now
days.
                                                            
Calvin walks over to him, smacks him and takes his gun. Rip
throws the pole at Calvin, it hits him in the head and
knocks him out.
                                                            
                       RIP
So you still wanna do this?
                                                            
                       BIG-D
Yeah.
      (He charges at Rip)
                                                            
Rip swings and hits him in the head. Big-D stands there and
takes the punch. Then he hits Rip with a vicious uppercut
that knocks him down.
                                                            
                       BIG-D
I know that ain't all you got. Why
you holdin' back?
                                                            
                       RIP
      (getting up off
       the floor)
For one, I wanted to know what you
got, and I hope you got mo'e than
that. 'Cause if not this wont last
long.
                                                            
Big D rushes him and attacks with a series of kicks and
punches, but Rip blocks them all and sweeps his feet from
under him. Big D does a backflip and lands on his feet. Rip
rushes him, but he dodges his attack and counters, but Rip
blocks it, and tries to counter but is hit by an attack from
Big-D, and falls on the ground. He walks up on him and
stands over him.
                                                            
                       BIG-D
You ain't all that good, unless
you still holdin' back. Maybe I...
                                                            
Rip does a jump up and kicks him in the face and makes him
stumble and unleashes a vicious assault on him and kills him
with one final move.
                                                            

38.

                       RIP
Don't eva question me or my
abilities.
                                                            
Tiny gets up and grabs a gun off the table and...
                                                            
                       LOOKOUT
Look out Rip!
                                                            
Tiny shoots Lookout and Rip pulls out a gun and shoots him.
Rip walks over and shoots Key, then walks over and picks
Calvin up off the floor and wakes him up and puts his gun in
his face.
                                                            
                       RIP
Now are you go'n tell me what I
wanna know, or am I just goin' to
kill you?
                                                            
                       CALVIN
You don't know? You should already
know. It is the person you least
expect.
                                                            
Rip shoots him and gets ready to leave.
                                                            
                       LOOKOUT
Don't leave me here.
                                                            
Rip stops and turns around and walks over towards him.
                                                            
                       RIP
I thought you was dead.
                                                            
Rip helps him up.
                                                            
                       LOOKOUT
You didn't bother to come and
check on me. I did save yo' life

                       RIP

you.

                       TANK
I got a bad feelin' 'bout this.
                                                            
                       RIP
'Bout what?
                                                            
                       TANK
Da fact that Calvin's not here.
                                                            
                       RIP
Don't worry 'bout it.
                                                            
                       TANK
You killed him?
                                                            
                       RIP
What makes you say that? Just
'cause my name is Rip don't mean I
kill everybody.
                                                            
                       TANK
So you killed him?
                                                            
                       RIP
You know me all too well, but he
had it comin'.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
Why did you kill him?
                                                            

40.

                       RIP
Ya'll ask to many questions. This
what happened. When ya'll left to
go lookin fo' me, I went and
followed Calvin, and when I got
there he tried to kill me. So I
did what I had to do.
                                                            
                       TWIST
So I guess this is the end?
                                                            
                       RIP
Not necessarily. I took his phone
and his boss will try to contact
him sooner or lata.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
Hold on. I'm confused...
                                                            
                       RIP (interrupting)
I ain't suprised.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER (ignoring Rip)
Why would you kill him? You don't
know anything. Who he work for? If
we are really being setup? Who is
after us. Not a damn thing.
                                                            
                       RIP
What I do know is that you...
                                                            
Calvins' phone rings.
                                                            
                       RIP
Hello.(beat) Sorry he can't come

(beat) He was dirty. (beat) We
still want in, but we need to make
some changes. First we need you to
deposit half da money in our

Rip pulls out his laptop and plugs the phone into it and
sends the account numbers.
                                                            
                       RIP (contuing)

I'm just wondering. Why didn't you
get more information on who we

                       RIP
When we need to know, we'll find

                       SMOKES
Do anybody know what we stealing?
                                                            
                       TWIST
It's just some blueprints.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
Not just blueprints, but
blueprints for a high-tech weapon.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
A weapon. What if they goin' to
use it for terrorist acts?
                                                            
                       TANK
What that got to do wit' us? I
don't know 'bout ya'll, but I'm
gon be on da beach somewhere.
                                                            
                       RIP
You shouldn't be so concerned.
People might start to think da
wrong thangs.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
You can think what you want, but I
wanna know what I'm gettin' myself
into. How will it affect me and
people I care about.
                                                            
                       RIP
Shooter will you tell her 'bout
this weapon we stealin'.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER

contacts...
                                                            
Smokes and Tank stands up.
                                                            
                       RIP (continuing)
Don't worry 'bout it. He used to
work fo' da Company, as ya'll
already know, but he still got
people he stays in contact wit'.
He's just tryin' to figure out who
we dealin' wit', and me.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
That's only what agents call it.
                                                            
                       RIP
We don't need no conflict right
now. Lets just get ready to do
this last job and go on wit' our
lives.
                                                            
Rip pulls out blueprints of Hardco Inc. and spreads them on
the table.
                                                            
                       TWIST
So what's the plan?
                                                            
                       RIP
Well as you can see this isn't yo'
typical run of da mill job.
There's surveillance cameras that
cross paths, but there are blind
spots. Not many. The good news is
once inside, all we hafta do is
deal wit' da guards and a few
cameras.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
It seems like it's harder to get
out then to get in.
                                                            
                       TWIST
It is. They feel like if you can
get in, you ain't going to get
out.
                                                            
                       TANK
I'm lookin' at these blueprints,
and I'm not sure we can pull this
off.
                                                            

43.

                       RIP
Oh ye of lil faith. Ya'll really
don't know who I am. There is no
place I can't get into, and once
I'm in, there's always a way out.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
I'm not sure if I still want to do
this.
                                                            
                       RIP
Alright, let's cut da shit. If you
want out speak now or fo'eva hold
yo' peace.
                                                            
Everybody gets up and gets ready to leave.
                                                            
                       RIP (continuing)
It's like that. Ya'll just gon
walk out?
                                                            
                       TWIST
It ain't worth the risk.
                                                            
                       RIP
I expected that from them Tank,
but not you.
                                                            
                       TANK
You've known me a long time, and I
just got out and I ain't tryin' to
go back.

Alright, be gon'. I can do this

EXT. HARDCO INC. - NIGHT
                                                            
Hardco Inc. is a high class government facility that
specializes in weapons. Surounded by surveillance camera's
and armed guards. Rip was sitting in the bushes watching. He
pulls out the blueprints and looks them over.
                                                            
Rip's P.O.V. He sees GUARDS walking around and the cameras.
                                                            
                       RIP (to himself)
I know it's gotta be another way
in.
                                                            
All of a sudden the lights go out and he makes his move
towards the wall. The guards are put on high alert. He

44.

throws a rope up the wall and climbs up it, as soon as he
reaches the top the lights come back on.
                                                            
                       RIP (to himself)
Damn. Da lights came back on
faster than I expected.
                                                            
He is laying down on top of the wall trying not to be seen.
His P.O.V. He sees TWO GUARDS walk pass, as soon as they do
he jumps down and knocks them out and take their weapons and
radio. Then two other GUARDS walk up on him and pull out
their guns.
                                                            
                       GUARD
Don't move. Put down your guns,
and put your hands where I can
see'em.
                                                            
Rip drops the guns and puts his hands up. The first guard
walks up to him and gets ready to cuff him, the other guard
hits the guard in the back of the head and knocks him out.
                                                            
                       RIP
Did you find da undaground tunnel?
                                                            
                       GUARD
Yea, but we gotta move quickly.
                                                            
They tie up the guard and puts him with the other ones, and
leave to the tunnel. When they get there, it's more guards.
                                                            
                       GUARD
I know you got a plan.
                                                            
                       RIP
      (He looks at his
       watch)
Yeah. 5,4,3,2,1.
                                                            
The guards go to the tunnel and soon as they touch it to go
in they get stunned and fall to the ground and the tunnel
opens and Twist walks out.
                                                            
                       TWIST
Hurry up.
                                                            
They run to the tunnel and go in.

Daniels shows his I.D. and the guard lets him in.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
What's going on?
                                                            
                       GUARD
I'm not sure sir, but we have a
security breach.
                                                            
                       DANIELS (to guard)
He's here. Go to level 5, I want
this place shut down. No-one
leaves or comes without my
permission.
                                                            
                       GUARD
Sir, do you think that...
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Don't question me and do it! I
want agents and guards at every
entrance. Find him!
                                                            
Daniels, Johnson, and some agents go into Hardco Inc. Other
agents go and secure the entrances.
                                                            
INT. HARDCO INC. - NIGHT
                                                            
GUARDS and other employees are running around at a frantic
pace. The supervising guard was yelling out orders. Daniels,
Johnson, and the rest of the agents walk over to him.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
What's the status?
                                                            
                       GUARD
We don't know what's going on. All
we know is we got a security
breach, and whoever it is, we
can't find him.

                       DANIELS
Tell me something I don't know.
Where is the security office?
                                                            
                       GUARD
I was on my way there. I'll take

They go to the elevator.
                                                            
CUT TO: EXT. WEAPONS ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Guards are laying on the ground. Rip and Tank are watching

All kinds of high-tech weapons and computer equipment. Rip
goes over to the master computer and signs on.
                                                            
                       RIP
It's a gigabyte encrypted
password.
                                                            
                       TANK
So what that means?
                                                            
                       TWIST
It might take a few minutes.
                                                            
                       TANK
They know we here, so we might not
have a few minutes. You wouldn't
happen to have another ace in the
hole?
                                                            
                       RIP
You know me.
      (He goes and grabs
       the blueprints)
I got it. Lets go.

Daniels, Johnson, and the supervising guard are surveying
the cameras looking for Rip.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
I know it's him. I just don't know
what he's doing here, and what he
came for.
                                                            
An alarm starts to beep.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
What is that?
                                                            
                       GUARD
That's the weapons room alarm. The
main computer has been accessed.
                                                            
                       DANIELS (on intercom)
I want every available agent and
guard down to the weapons room
now!
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
Shouldn't we go down ther too?
                                                            
                       DANIELS
No. We going to stay here just in
case he slips through, then we can
go after him.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
Shouldn't we see the guards on the
screens by now?
                                                            
                       GUARD
You're right.
      (He checks his
       computer)
He interrupted the feed, and
rerouted it.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Can you get it back?
                                                            
                       GUARD
Yeah, but it'll take awhile.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
He'll be long gone by then.

guards were coming from that way also.
                                                            
                       AGENT
Put your hands where I can see
them.
                                                            
                       RIP
Tank, remember when you asked me
if I had anotha ace in da hole?
                                                            
                       TANK
Yeah.
                                                            
                       RIP
It's time to use it.
                                                            
                       TWIST
Are ya'll going to fill me in?
                                                            
                       RIP
Just be ready, you'll know when
it's time. Do it now Tank.
                                                            
Tank drops smoke grenades and smoke engulfs the tunnel.
                                                            
                       RIP (continuing)
I think you know what to do next.
                                                            
                       AGENT
Clear out. Everyone hold your
fire. They want them...
                                                            
The smoke clears and the agents and Twist was on the ground.
Rip helps him up.
                                                            
                       RIP
You good?
                                                            
                       TWIST
Yeah, I just tripped.
                                                            
They run out the tunnel and more agents and guards are
waiting for them.
                                                            

49.

                       TANK
I don't know 'bout ya'll, but this
is gettin' old pretty fast.
                                                            
The agents start to hit the ground.
                                                            
                       RIP
I do believe that's our que.
                                                            
Daniels, Johnson, and other agents run out with their guns
drawn and some more agents start to drop.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Sniper! Take cover!
                                                            
While they are taking cover Rip, Tank, and Twist are
climbing over the wall.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
They're trying to get away.
      (he starts
       shooting at them)
                                                            
Other agents start shooting.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Hold your fire! Hold your fire! We
need them alive.
                                                            
They jump down off the wall and jump in a waiting van and
drive off.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
What the hell was that!? We had
them in our sites and you let them
get away!
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Are you done? The reason we need
them alive is we don't know if
that is really him or somebody
that works for him.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
I thought you said it was him.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
I did, but I want to make sure.
Lets get this place cleaned up and
collect any evidence.

                       JOHNSON
Nice to meet you.
                                                            
                       WILLIAMS
Sir, do you think it's wise for
him to know who I am?
                                                            

53.

                       DANIELS
It's alright. I think he should
know. So what happened?
                                                            
                       WILLIAMS
I'm not sure. We was there going
over the plan then everybody just
went their different ways.
      (She sits down)
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
Maybe he knew it was a setup.
                                                            
                       WILLIAMS
If that's true why would he do it
anyway?
                                                            
                       DANIELS
I don't know. Maybe he's doing
another job for somebody else.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
The same job we had setup for him?
How coincedental is that?
                                                            
                       DANIELS
It must be something we missed.
Any idea when you supposed to meet
up with them again?
                                                            
                       WILLIAMS
He said he'll be in touch, but I
don't know when.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
Since you been working undercover
you know what they look like then.
                                                            
                       WILLIAMS
I don't think so.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON

Can we worry about that later,
because we got company.
                                                            
Rip looks out the little slide holes in the back of the van.
                                                            
                       RIP
These mothafuckas don't give up.
Is anything in here we can use to
take them out.

Either you going to give the
order, or I am going to take
charge.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
We don't have time for this. I
will have you demoted to a desk
job if you don't stop your
insubordination. Now sit there and
shut the fuck up.

They go over there and start shooting at them.
                                                            
                       SMOKES (to Rip)
If you got a plan, now is the time

ground and the bazooka is fired into the air and hits a
building and it explodes. The van takes off. After a few
minutes Daniels and Johnson get up.

So what are we gon do?

What the hell is that? The
pentagon.

                       SMOKES
Is it that serious? It looks like
you doin' pretty good without the
money.
                                                            
                       RIP
It's not 'bout da money wit' me.
Nobody double crosses me and
lives. And, I'm pretty sho, ya'll
want ya'll money. If not I can
take care of this myself. But let
it be known your careers will be
over. No-one will hire you to do
any otha jobs. Of course you could
just work fo' yo'self. Or maybe
ya'll can live off da jobs you
already done.

You know I'm wit' you. Ain't no
punk mothafucka gon get over on me

off the jobs I already done, but,
I couldn't look at myself knowing
I let someone get over on me.

If you care so much, then why
would you put me in a situation
where I don't have a choice?
                                                            
                       RIP
I didn't say you didn't have a
choice. I said choose carefully.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
Well, I don't want to do this, and
I don't want you to do it either.
                                                            
                       RIP
Is there a reason. Maybe da fact
that this whole job was a setup?
                                                            
                       TANK
What? Did you know that befo' we
did this job?
                                                            
                       RIP
No. But, I found out while was
doin' it. But I did know that
Smokes was part of it.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
And you still let her get in with
us.

You believe him?
                                                            
Shooter grabs his gun and Rip was in front of him in a blink
of an eye.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
Don't worry I'm not about to do
nothing.

Yeah, but that's anotha long
story.

We got a lead on them. There going

                       JOHNSON
Would they be foolish enough to go
after him?
                                                            
                       DANIELS
One thing you need to know about
Rip, is he would never allow
anybody to double cross him.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
So what are we waiting on.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
The word.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
Shouldn't we already be there?
                                                            
                       DANIELS
We don't want to have too many
people there, it would jeopardize
the whole setup. What we are going
to do is be within the vicinity.
So lets go.

Rip jumps in the drivers seat and rams through the gate.
                                                            
                       TWIST
I thought this place was supposed
to be more secure than this.
                                                            
                       RIP
It is. Twist you and Smokes go
back with Shooter and wait fo' da
signal.
                                                            
                       TWIST
What's the signal?
                                                            

77.

                       RIP
You'll know when it happens.
                                                            
They go out the gate and GUARDS come running out shooting.
Some fall soon as they get out. The other GUARDS stop and
take cover and start shooting. They take cover behind the
van and start shooting back. Rip and Tank jump back in the
van and rams it into the front of the house. The walls
surrounding the mansion explodes.
                                                            
CUT TO: SMOKES AND THE OTHERS
                                                            
                       SMOKES
That's our que.
                                                            
They run towards the compound shooting guards as they do.
More vans pull up after they reach the compound.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER (on radio to Rip)
Was you expecting company? Because
we got alot of black vans pulling
up.
                                                            
                       RIP (o. s. on radio)
Get in here now. That's those same
fools that has been afta me.
                                                            
They run into the mansion. Daniels and Johnson and other
AGENTS get out the vans with their guns drawn and surrounds
the compound.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Alright listen up. You all know
that we need them alive. I know
what you going to say. The reason
we need them alive is we don't
know who Rip is. He could be one
of them or, they could work for
him. So unless it's absolutely
necessary take them alive.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
I wasn't going to say nothing
about that. I was wondering why
you let all this bloodshed go on
before we intervened, if you
wanted them alive?
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Less work for us. If they get took
out by someone else I wouldn't
have to explain myself.
                                                            

78.

They duck as bullets fly past them.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
Alright, lets move in.
                                                            
They move in on the mansion.
                                                            
CUT TO: INT: MANSION
                                                            
What was once a very nice and expensive living room, Smokes
and Rip are taking cover behind a big marble desk. Tank,
Shooter and Twist was taking cover in the dining room.
                                                            
                       DANIELS (o.s. on bullhorn)
We have the place surrounded. Put
your guns down and come out with
your hands up.
                                                            
                       RIP
Not these mothafuckas again.
                                                            
                       TWIST
We need a little more firepower.
                                                            
Shooter pulls out some automatic pistols and hands one to
Twist and one to Tank and grabs one for himself then slides
the bag over to Rip.
                                                            
                       TWIST
That might do.
                                                            
Rip slides it back.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
What the hell are you doin'?
                                                            
Shooter, Tank, Twist start shooting and taking guards out.
                                                            
                       RIP
Don't worry we don't need that.
      (He takes two
       futristic guns
       out his bag and
       gives one to
       Smokes)
That's somethin' not even Shooter
has.
                                                            
They start shooting guards as they advance upstairs other
guards retreat. They station themselves in corners and
Smokes gets ready to throw a grenade.
                                                            

79.

                       RIP
What da hell are you doin'? That's
gon blow us all up.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
Stop trippin' it's not a regular
grenade.
                                                            
Agents advance into the mansion.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
Fire in the hole!
                                                            
The agents run back out. She throws it and it collapses just
the front entrance and the way upstairs.
                                                            
                       RIP
I need to get me some of them.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
I'm glad you like them. I made
them myself.

I knew it was a reason I liked
you.
                                                            
CUT TO: EXT: MANSION
                                                            
The agents are getting up off the ground.
                                                            
                       JOHNSON
They sealed the entrance. Go
around the back and we'll go in
that way.
                                                            
CUT TO: INT: MANSION
                                                            
                       SMOKES
That should hold them off for a
little bit
                                                            
They come to some steel doors and tries to go through but
they're locked.
                                                            
                       RIP
Twist would you do da honors.
                                                            
                       TWIST
I thought I was goin' to have to
change my name to trigger for a
second.
                                                            

80.

                       RIP
Well, Twist gots a sense of humor.
                                                            
Twist takes out some clay like substance and lines it on the
cracks of the doors and lights it.
                                                            
                       TANK
Is it safe for us to stand here?
                                                            
                       SMOKES
You sound like a big ass punk.
                                                            
                       TANK
Excuse me if I don't wanna get
blown up.
                                                            
                       TWIST
You wont get blown up. It's like a
blow torch it just burns.
                                                            
After it burns, the doors fall. They step in and more doors
close behind them.
                                                            
CUT TO: INT: WAR ROOM
                                                            
A big room that looks like a fighting arena. Tann, Brian,
and Joseph was standing there waiting for them.
                                                            
                       TANN
Welcome to da war room. I gotta
say I didn't think ya'll would
make it this far. I'm impressed.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
You going to stand there and take
his smart assed remarks and not
say something smart assed back.
                                                            
                       RIP
Under normal circumstances I
wouldn't.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
But?
                                                            
                       TANN
I wasn't talkin' about him. I was
talkin' about the rest of you.
Yes, even you Tank.
                                                            
                       TANK
I never did like yo' li'l ass.
                                                            

81.

                       TANN
The feelin's mutual. Well I guess
you wanna know where our boss is.
You gotta make it through us to
get to him.
                                                            
                       RIP
How did I know you was gon say
that.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
Will you just shoot them so we can
go get our money.
                                                            
                       TANN
You wish it could be that easy.
Only we know where he is, and
where ya'll money is.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
Just shoot two of them then.
                                                            
                       TANN
Do you want me to explain it to
him or, will you?
                                                            
                       RIP
It's a game fo' him. Only one of
them know. That way we have to
play da game to get what we want.
                                                            
                       TANN
You also forgot that if you shoot
any of us this room will lock and
not even Twist will be able to get
ya'll out.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER (to Twist)
Is he right?
                                                            
                       TWIST
I'm afraid so.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
So whats next?
                                                            
                       RIP
He wants to fight.
                                                            
                       TANN
I pick the order, and Tank is
first.

                       TANK
Now I get to have some fun.
      (he takes off his
       shirt)
So which one of you lucky bastards
am I fightin'?
                                                            
Joseph walks to the middle of the room.
                                                            
                       TANK
Do you think you got a chance?
Don't you know who I am?
                                                            
                       RIP
Don't get cocky Tank and keep yo'
guard up.

Don't worry, I got this.
                                                            
CUT TO: EXT: WAR ROOM
                                                            
Johnson, Daniels and the other agents were clearing a path
to rig a harness up to get to the next floor.
                                                            
                       DANIELS (to one of the agents)
I need a scan of this building. I
want to know if there is any other
way out of this place.
                                                            
CUT TO: INT: WAR ROOM
                                                            
Tank runs up on Joseph and tries to tackle him, but he
dodges him and hits him with a running jump kick. They
continue fighting.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
They seem to be evenly matched.
                                                            
                       RIP
He's holdin' back. Tank. We ain't
got time fo' this. Whoop his ass
so we can get the hell out here!
                                                            
There is a big booming sound that shakes the room.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
What the hell was that?
                                                            
                       TWIST
Someone is trying to get in. They
wont be able to get in tho. This
room is built to withstand a 1
megaton blast, and once it's

                       TWIST (cont'd)
sealed it's only one way out. If
you don't know it you wont get
out.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
How do you know?
                                                            
                       TWIST
I designed it.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
You built this place?
                                                            
                       TWIST
Not this one, but I did design the
concept of it.
                                                            
                       RIP
I guess it's true. A criminal is
the best way to keep a criminal at
bay.
                                                            
Tank and Joseph are still fighting. Untill Tank hits Joseph
so hard he flips and falls on the ground. Tank starts to
gloat.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
Is it over?
                                                            
                       RIP
Nope. Tank watch yo' back.
                                                            
Tank turns around and Joseph hits him with a uppercut and
knocks Tank out.
                                                            
                       RIP
I didn't know we could use
weapons.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
I didn't see him use no weapon.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
That's because he didn't have them
on untill the last time he got
knocked down and Tank started
showboating. Rip, I know you seen
when he put them on.
                                                            
                       RIP
Yeah. I told him to watch his
back.

Everytime you talk I get this

You must know what I'm 'bout to
say.

Why can't we just finish this
ourselves. You got da problem wit'
me. Be a man and step up.
                                                            
                       TANN
You know me betta than that. It
wouldn't be no fun that way. I
know how impatient you is, and
there is nothin' you can do 'bout
what's 'bout to happen next.
                                                            
                       RIP
You know that's some punk shit.
Why you gotta put her in this?
                                                            
                       SMOKES
Why do I got a feeling, you
talking about me?
                                                            
                       TANN
'Cause I am, and you gotta fight
next.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
What!? Hell no. You must be out
your damn mind.
                                                            
                       TANN
A li'l bit, but you ain't got no
choice. Either you fight or ya'll
trapped in here. Even if by some
chance ya'll get out those agents
are out there waitin' on ya'll.
                                                            
                       RIP
You 'posed to be so tough. Why you

These guys will do anythang to

I do understand, but if I don't do
this, we don't get out of here.

Are you sho? 'Cause we can figure
out a way to get outta here.

What if we can't? Are you willing
to take that chance? 'Cause I'm
not.

Alright. Be careful, you already
seen what they are willin' to do.

I got a trick or two up my sleeve.

Give me yo' word that if she wins
me and you settle it once and fo'
all and he wont keep beatin' her,
if it gets to that point.

That's always been your problem.
You always let your feelin's get
involved, but you got my word.

Let's do this.
                                                            
She and Brian walks to the center of the room and start
fighting. Smokes is winning.

I said you wouldn't kill her. I
didn't say you wouldn't hit her.

Yes sir, but he's in california.

The agent grabs his phone and dials a number and Daniels the

I need you to tell me how to get
in that room.
                                                            
                       ARCHITECT (o. s. on phone)
There is only one way to get in.
You have to cut the power source.
It's located on the soutside of
the room and incased in 3 inch
thick steel. You can cut through
it but it will take awhile.
                                                            
                       DANIELS
I don't have time to cut through
that much steel. There is no other
way to get in?
                                                            
                       ARCHITECT
Not without the code, and it can
only be activated from the inside.
                                                            

87.

                       DANIELS
Alright, thanks for nothing.
      (He throws the
       phone)
The only way to get in is by
finding the power source which is
located on the southside of the
room, but it's incased in 3 inch
thick steel. So lets get to work.

Finish her!

crotch and jumps up and knees him in the face and knocks him

I see you been practicin'.
                                                            
                       RIP
Not really, I seen that on t.v.
                                                            
                       TANN
Still a smart-ass.
                                                            
                       RIP
You should know that'll neva
change.
                                                            
                       TANN
      (walking to the
       center of the
       room)
Now we'll see if the student is
betta then the teacher.
                                                            
                       RIP
And you still like to hear yo'self
talk.
                                                            
They start fighting and are evenly matched.
                                                            
                       TWIST
I have never seen fighting like
this.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
I bet you glad you didn't go in
and fight after all?
                                                            
                       TWIST
I could of took him.
                                                            

90.

                       SHOOTER
Riiight.
                                                            
They are still fighting and now Tann is winning.
                                                            
                       TANN
      (he kicks Rip over
       on his back)
You seem to last yo' edge. I
always told you you didn't have
the killer instinct. Yo' name
maybe Rip, but I don't see why.
                                                            
He gets up and tries to keep fighting, but Tann was
dominating the fight now. Smokes wakes up, but Twist and
Shooter was standing in front of her.
                                                            
                       TWIST
This doesn't look good.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
What!? What's happenning!? Move so
I can see.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
I'm not sure you want to.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
Get the hell out the way!
                                                            
They move and Rip was on one knee.
                                                            
                       TANN
I thought you would put up a way
betta fight then this. You know if
you lose, I'm goin' to kill her.
                                                            
                       SMOKES
Rip get your ass up, and fight! I
know you ain't gon let this ass
hole be your downfall!
                                                            
Rip gets up.
                                                            
                       TANN
That's all it took. I hope you
ready, 'cause this is it.
                                                            
                       RIP
You right, this is it.
                                                            

91.

                       TANK
      (Waking up)
Seems like he's about to get
serious.
                                                            
                       SHOOTER
You mean to tell me he wasn't
going all out.
                                                            
                       TANK
Nope. One thang ya'll need to know
'bout Rip, he likes a challenge.
                                                            
                       TANN
It seems like you got a li'l
motivation.
                                                            
                       RIP
I though I taught you betta. You
should neva motivate yo' opponent.
                                                            
                       TANN
You right, but I wanted you to
fight at yo' best. That way no-one
can question who is the best.
                                                            
They start fighting again. Tann hits Rip a few more times,
then Rip turns the tables on him and starts winning. He
knocks Tann down. Tann jumps up and rushes him. Rip blocks
every attack and counters with a viciuos combo and finishes
him off. He grabs his bag and takes out some rope, and ties
them up.
                                                            
                       RIP
I should kill you, but I'm gon
leave you fo' them fools outside.
They goin' to think that ya'll are
us.
                                                            
                       TANN
How do you plan on doin' that?
                                                            
                       RIP
Simple. I thought this might be a
setup so I left li'l clues that
point to ya'll.
                                                            
                       TANN
Even if you thought this was a
setup. How would you know who did
it?
                                                            

92.

                       RIP
You'll find out in due time. So
hold yo' part of the bargain and
tell us how to get out of here.
                                                            
                       TANN
Yeah right. What do you take me
for? Did you really think I was
goin' to tell you how to get outta
here. Then you dumber then I
thought.
                                                            
                       RIP
I guess it's time to show you how
dumb I really am.
      (He goes and grabs
       his bag and takes
       out a syringe)
You see this. It's filled wit'
what I call a Rip cocktail. I
would tell you what it'll do to
you but, it wouldn't be no fun
that way.
                                                            
                       TANN
You think I giva damn. I lived my
life just to prove that I'm betta
then you, and I failed, and I
don't plan on goin' to jail. So do
what you do.
                                                            
                       RIP
I thought you might say that,
that's why it's not for you, it's
fo' them. See, I know you smart
enough not to be the one who knows
how to get outta here 'cause most
people would think you would be
the one to know, but I think one
of them know.
      (moves over to
       Brian)
So is it you or him?
                                                            
                       BRIAN
Go to hell.
                                                            
                       RIP
Only one way to find out.
                                                            

93.

                       SHOOTER
Are you really willing to inject
that into one of them. What if
it's the one who knows?
                                                            
                       RIP
If you got a betta idea, I'm
willin' to here it.
                                                            
(Beat)
                                                            
Rip injects Tann with the serum.
                                                            
                       TANN
What the hell did you inject me
wit'?
                                                            
                       RIP
It doesn't matta, you already
dead.
                                                            
Tann starts to convulse.
                                                            
                       JOSEPH
Alright, I'll tell you, but I want
to get out of here with you.
                                                            
                       RIP
You know I can't do that, but I
can give you a chance to get out
on yo' own. If I let you live, I
will leave you a weapon and you
can fight yo' way out. That's all
I can do fo' you.
                                                            
                       JOSEPH
Alright. Tann and Brian has keys
and a locator. To locate the
keyholes. Then all you have to do
is turn them simultaneously and a
keypad will be revealed...
                                                            
                       BRIAN (to Joseph)
How do you know he gon do what he
says?
