CLONED TIGER

FADE IN:

EXT. JUNGLE - DAY
                                                            
SUPERIMPOSE : AFRICA - SENEGAL
                                                            
Sun high in the sky. A beautiful jungle. A few tents and a
group of people with cameras and safari equipments. Some
look like hunters but the rest look like scientists.
                                                            
A young man comes out of a tent. Early twenties. Tall and
handsome but his glasses tell you that he is a science
student. This is EVAN.
                                                            
                       EVAN
Has any one seen Jane?
                                                            
                       HUNTER
Don't tell me she went discovering
alone again...
                                                            
                       EVAN
Hope not!
                                                            
                       HUNTER
She almost got herself killed last
time...
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
 
EXT. ANOTHER PART OF JUNGLE - SAME TIME - DAY
                                                            
A swamp full of alligators. We see the reflection of a tree
branch protruding from the tree next to the swamp. The
branch is about 15 feet high. Over the branch is Jane. An
old professor holding a camera.
                                                            
Jane taking a few shots.
                                                            
CRACK - BRANCH SNAPS
                                                            
                       JANE
Ahhh...
                                                            
SPLASH!!! Jane and the branch in the swamp with the
ALLIGATORS. Jane struggling in the swamp trying to maintain
balance and swim. TEETH in-front of her eyes. She draws out
her dagger and jabs it at the teeth of the beast. The
alligator bites the dagger, Jane loses it.
                                                            

2.

More alligators gather around her... Waist bite... Blood...
Jane Screams... Life is almost over... Jane is between the
JAWS of one of the alligators...
                                                            
HUGE WHITE BEAST
                                                            
Jumps in the swamp like a torpedo. Attacking the alligators,
biting like a vampire thirsty for blood. It's a wild huge
white tiger. He stabs an alligator in the eyes with his
razor sharp claws and bites off the head of the alligator
holding Jane in its jaws. BRUTAL BLOODY BATTLE... Tiger and
alligators are exchanging bites...
                                                            
Alligator biting the tiger from the right side, the tiger
responds by slashing the alligator's eye, tearing it apart.
Turning around to hammer another over the head with heavy
strong paws, like sledge hammers. Fast and rapid blows,
slashes and bites from the tiger at the alligators. The
alligators are biting back but the Tiger has the upper hand.
                                                            
Jane is stunned... Still bleeding... Trying to swim away to
get out but can't. Fainting... Blacks out.
                                                            
                                         DISSOLVE INTO:
                                                            
 
EXT. JUNGLE- BUSHES - DAY
                                                            
Jane is lying on the ground on her back. Her eyes are shut.
Thick bushes and trees surround the area.
                                                            
Jane starts opening her eyes.
                                                            
Jane's pov: The sun is so bright in her eyes. She turns her
head to see the tiger licking her as if he was her pet. The
tiger is white and huge, much bigger than any other tiger or
lion. His eyes are red. His claws are so bright. He looks
like an elegant prince warrior. He has too much fur as if he
came from Alaska.
                                                            
                       JANE
Oh! Dear Lord. Who are you?!
      (trying to get up)
Ouch! Ah!!!
                                                            
The tiger places his head under her arm to help her up. He
even gets below her to make her sit on his back.
                                                            
                                         DISSOLVE INTO:
                                                            
 

3.

EXT. JUNGLE - DAY
                                                            
Evan and some hunters plus a few others are searching for
Jane. They are calling out her name. Jane comes in the frame
RIDDING THE TIGER as if it's a horse. The group is stunned
at the sight.
                                                            
                       JANE
Hey every body! I am okay! Got a
flesh wound but was able to stop
the bleeding.
      (leaning on
       tiger's head)
This boy saved my life. He is very
friendly...
                                                            
The hunters aim their rifles at the tiger.
                                                            
                       JANE
STOP IT!
                                                            
                       EVAN
Hey, she is over it. You could
kill her.
                                                            
                       HUNTER
What the hell do you think
yourself doing, professor?
                                                            
The tiger stares eagerly at the hunters but stays put.
                                                            
                       JANE
This tiger saved my life. I fell
in the alligator's swamp and he
fought them to defend me. HE SAVED
ME.
      (pointing at the
       rifles)
Now stop aiming at us.
                                                            
                       HUNTER
      (lowering his
       rifle)
Alright professor. It will be your
funeral not mine.
      (to his men)
Stop aiming at them.
                                                            
Jane pats the head of the tiger. The tiger lifts his head up
and turns it to Jane expressing gratitude.
                                                            
VOOM...
                                                            

4.

As the tiger's eyes look at Jane's face. A dart hits the
tiger in the neck. Tiger moans. Tiger's pov: The hunter is
holding darts pistol in his left hand, arm still stretched
and aimed at the tiger.
                                                            
                       JANE
How dare you?! How dare you do
this?! I told you that...
                                                            
                       HUNTER
      (interrupting her
       words)
It's a sedating dart. You want to
keep him...fine but I won't
jeopardize our lives for it.
                                                            
Tiger still on its feet. The hunter can't believe his eyes.
He reloads the darts pistol. Tiger starts going down...
                                                            
                       JANE
That's enough...he is falling...
                                                            
                       HUNTER
Doesn't look enough for me...
                                                            
                       EVAN
      (moves to be in
       front of hunter)
Don't you shoot again while Prof.
is still on its back.
                                                            
                       HUNTER
Tell her to get off it then
because I WILL SHOOT AGAIN.
                                                            
                       JANE
He is down Tarazan.
                                                            
The hunter walks past Evan, takes a closer look at the
tiger. The tiger is lying down, eyes shut and looks asleep.
Jane is on her feet and the tiger is lying between her legs.
                                                            
                       HUNTER
One more won't harm it.
                                                            
                       JANE
I understand your job
responsibilities but if you shoot
one more I will make sure you
never accompany any other
scientific discovery group again.
I need to have my wound sown and
you are wasting my time while I am

bleeding.
                                                            
                       HUNTER
You are not bleeding.
                                                            
                       JANE
Tell the governor. It will be your
word against mine.
                                                            
                       HUNTER
      (grinning)
Are you threatening me?!
                                                            
                       JANE
Threatening your license only.
      (to the others)
Now please get the wheeled cage
and put the tiger in it.
                                                            
The tiger opens one of his eyes a little without letting any
one notice. He looks around, watches the hunters carefully.
As Jane turns her head to him, he quickly shuts his eye
again.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:

Professor Jane and Evan are working together. The tiger is
in a cage.
                                                            
                       EVAN
I can't find any information about
him.
                                                            
                       JANE
We found him in a warm climate
area but he has enough fur to live
in the Eskimos.
                                                            
                       EVAN
And red eyes!
                                                            
                       JANE

You are looking me in the eye?!!!
                                                            
                       EVAN
What?!
                                                            
                       JANE
He was looking me in the eyes!!!
                                                            
                       EVAN
So he was staring at you.
                                                            
                       JANE
No, he was... It's as if he was
trying to tell me something.
Sometimes when I am with him at
the lab... when I am alone with
him...
                                                            
                       EVAN
Go on...
                                                            
                       JANE
I feel he is about to talk...
                                                            
                       EVAN
I know he is a lot smarter than
any other animal in the whole
world. And he likes peanut butter,
but I am sure that he can't talk.
                                                            
                       JANE
Well, never mind. Tomorrow is our
big day. Tomorrow we show the
whole world our pet tiger.
                                                            
                                         DISSOLVE INTO:
                                                            
 
EXT. UNIVERSITY YARD - DAY
                                                            
A big yard surrounded with iron bars. Cameras outside the
bars and T.V. shooting crew, too much action going on.
Spotlights, cables, monitors and tables with equipments on
them. Behind the bars is professor Jane, Evan and the tiger.

An old man holding a glass of water, walks out of the
kitchen and walks to the T.V. He turns up the sound.

Glass shatters on the floor.
                                                            
                                         DISSOLVE INTO:
                                                            
 
INT. HOSPITAL LAB - DAY
                                                            
Strange equipments. A big glass window. Behind it there is
green water. In the water there are strange looking
creatures wrapped in webs and a tube is connected to each
one of them.
                                                            
Looking at the creatures is the same old man who dropped his
glass of water, when he saw the Tiger on his T.V. But here
he is younger and looks like a scientist. Dressed in a white
coat. Hospital costume. This is professor MAC. There are
other in the room dressed like him. They are busy, working
on keyboards and watching analysis on the monitors.
                                                            
                       DR. HENRY (O.S.)
You think they will make it this
time?!
                                                            
                       PROFESSOR MAC.
      (turns around)
I am sure that the tiger will.
                                                            
Dr. Henry late fifties and dressed like him and dressed like
Dr. Mac.
                                                            
                       DR. HENRY
      (pointing at the
       creatures)
What about these?!
                                                            
                       PROFESSOR MAC.
They are weak and not smart
enough, unlike my tiger. He has
human genes. He will be the first
generation of the super creature I
dream of.
                                                            

8.

                       DR. HENRY
You still think you can make an
assassin of your own?!
                                                            
                       PROFESSOR MAC.
My tiger is only the start. Later
on I will be able to develop my
cloning methods and I will provide
our agency with a pet cat with
human brain that will be the most
dangerous assassin and spy the
world ever seen.
                                                            
                       DR. HENRY
I believe that your tiger is so
big in size to be considered a
pet.
                                                            
                       PROFESSOR MAC.
The tiger is a step its genes fit
more with the human genes I have.
But with more research I will be
able to develop everything to
satisfy my own needs.
                                                            
                       DR. HENRY
Well be careful. Your tiger looks
really vicious.
                                                            
                       PROFESSOR MAC.
I cloned him and I know what it is
like...

A guard fires at the Tiger with a shot gun. The tiger jumps
in zigzags. So fast and in a second, he is all over the
guard cutting his head off. Then:
                                                            
The Tiger heads to a big green water pool. He jumps in it
and cuts off the tubes connected to the creatures. The Tiger
sees Prof. Mac behind the glass in the lab. The Tiger dives
deeper and...
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
 
INT. LAB - DAY
                                                            
Drs. Mac and Henry plus a few assists are stunned, watching
the wild Tiger through the glass wall. Then:
                                                            
KABOOM!!!
                                                            
The Tiger smashes the glass wall and the green water is
flushed in the lab like a terrible flood. The place is in a
mess. The scientists are struggling in the room flushed with
green water. The tiger is roaring and killing every one he
reaches.
                                                            
Too much red blood combined with green water. Dr. Mac.
reaches the door, he barely opens it and gets himself out.
The tiger sees him. It goes after him.
                                                            
On the way to the door he catches up with Dr. Henry. It
pulls his spinal cord with its claws and crushes his scull
between its jaws. Then:
                                                            
The tiger busts through the door.
                                                            
 
INT. CORRIDOR - DAY

10.

INT. ELEVATOR - DAY
                                                            
Dr. Mac is pushing the closing button so hard. Only a couple
of inches and the doors will be shut. The Tiger's front limb
gets through these inches and grabs Prof. Mac's leg,
dropping him on the floor.
                                                            
BLOOD
                                                            
Claws protruding from the paw of the Tiger's front limb
slash Pro. Mac's leg. Mac and the Tiger lock eyes through
the space between the sliding doors.
                                                            
DOORS OPEN WIDE...
                                                            
End of Dr. Mac. The Tiger roars...
                                                            
BANG BANG BANG...
                                                            
Prof. Mac fires with a .38 pistol at the tiger. The Tiger
bleeds and backs away a few feet. Prof. Mac's coat is opened
and we see a holster under it. Dr. Mac pins the elevator's
button again. Doors close.

ON T.V. SCREEN
                                                            
The tiger is putting on a great show. Jane gives him orders
verbally and he does exactly what she tells him to do.
                                                            
                       REPORTER
Maybe you trained him so well. How
about that I tell him to do
something?
                                                            
                       JANE
Go ahead. Please, be my guest.
                                                            

11.

                       REPORTER
Do a hand stand. Ha ha...
                                                            
The tiger stands on his front limbs and lifts up the back as
if he is a clown doing a hand-stand. Every one is stunned.
                                                            
                       JANE
      (to reporter)
My tiger already received circus
offers and he will also work in a
movie this summer. Some experts
came earlier to see him this week
and offers are raining down on me.
      (to tiger)
Thriller...THRILL THEM...
                                                            
He runs, climbs the iron bars and jumps outside...People are
terrified but he runs away from them and the camera still
following him. He jumps at a flat wall but climbs it with
his claws. He jumps down again, he lands safely and runs
back inside the area surrounded with the high bars, by a
magnificent leap in the air 12 feet high.
                                                            
                       PROFESSOR MAC. (O.S.)
Circus, movies...Oh my

people have to die?!!! It will be

      (Pause; listening
       to the person
       talking to her
       through the phone)
I know it's urgent but I couldn't
skip making forty million dollars.
I'll be here tonight, waiting for
you. Is eight o'clock fine for
you?
      (Pause)
Okay! I'll lock him up in the
cage. It's a fortified steel cage.
                                                            
Jane hangs up.
                                                            
                       JANE
      (to herself)
What a crazy paranoid professor!
                                                            
The word professor grabs the tiger's attention. It stares at
Jane with an angry look, but Jane doesn't notice. She opens
a book and reads.

lying down on the floor, on an alpaca carpet.
                                                            
                       JANE
      (to the Tiger)
...he wanted me to lock you up
baby!
      (laughs)
Isn't it enough that you sit in
the cage, when the servants are
here?!
                                                            
The Tiger nods "Yes".
                                                            
                       JANE
Don't worry I promised you this
week, will be with no servants, no
cage, no shows and no cameras.
                                                            
Door bell rings.

                       JANE
This must be him. Okay, now you
stay here.

                                         DISSOLVE INTO:
                                                            
 
INT. VILLA - HALL - NIGHT
                                                            
Jane walks to the door and opens it. It's Dr. Mac, the one
who had the memories about the lab where the tiger escaped
from. He just stands there in a dark suit, looking over his
shoulders.
                                                            
                       JANE
Professor Mac...
                                                            
                       PROFESSOR MAC.
You don't have to mention my name
so loudly.
                                                            
                       JANE
      (laughs)
Please come in.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
 
INT. VILLA - SALON ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Big room with French furniture. The room's door and windows
are closed. Jane and the professor are sitting in armchairs,
drinking tea and talking.
                                                            
                       JANE
...I am sorry. I just don't buy
the cloning lab story...
                                                            

14.

                       PROFESSOR MAC.
      (harsh voice tone)
Dr. Jane! This tiger is a killing
machine.
                                                            
                       JANE
So... you want to take my tiger
away.
                                                            
                       PROFESSOR MAC.
This is...
                                                            
                       JANE
      (cuts him off)
Is it the money?! It must be the
money. Now that my tiger made
forty millions in a couple of
months, everybody wants a piece of
it.
      (Looks at him with
       disgust)
Even a great scientist like you...
                                                            
The professor pulls up his trousers left leg to reveal
terrible ugly scars on his leg.
                                                            
                       JANE
      (stunned)
Oh! God...
                                                            
                       PROFESSOR MAC.
I believe in a lab with the right
equipments, we can match those
scars to your pet's claws.
      (Pause)
Why are you silent now? Did your
big cat eat your tongue?!!!
                                                            
                       JANE
      (tries to sound
       calm)
Not really. So...he gave you
scars. He is a tiger after all.
Still doesn't prove he was cloned
in some lab, which you have no
evidence that it even exists.
                                                            
                       PROFESSOR MAC.
The lab was destroyed. There are
no records for it because it was a
secret lab.
                                                            
Jane looks satisfied.
                                                            

15.

                       PROFESSOR MAC.
However, if you check his
brain...if gene experts made
analysis...
      (Pause; stares in
       Jane's eyes)
The result will prove that his
brain was cloned with human genes.
                                                            
As the professor finishes his sentence;
LOUD ROAR O.S. from outside the salon room.
                                                            
The professor - terrified to death, he drops his tea cup on
the tiled floor. It gets broken.
                                                            
Jane looks at the salon door.which is still closed.
                                                            
                       JANE
Take it easy professor. I think he
is behind the door. I'll go calm
him down.
                                                            
The professor doesn't respond. He is stupefied.
                                                            
Jane walks towards the door. Professor in background draws
out a .44 magnum pistol from under his jacket. The gun is
big and heavy for his hands, that are shaking with fear.
                                                            
Jane reaches the door and opens it. The open door reveals
the hall, but no tiger. Jane turns around to the professor.
                                                            
                       JANE
He must be back to his room.
      (Notices the gun
       in his hand)
You don't need that. He is
harmless.
                                                            
The TIGER like a thunder bolt, blasts into the salon by
smashing through one of the windows.
                                                            
The Tiger lands over the professor, taking him down to the
floor and crushing him under its heavy body. The gun slides
on the smooth tiled floor, a few feet away. The professor's
body is stretched on the floor with the Tiger all over it.
The Tiger stares the professor dead in the eye.
                                                            
                       JANE
      (screaming)
NOOO!!!TIGER...NOOO...
                                                            

16.

Jane runs at them and tries to pull the tiger off the
professor. No use. The Tiger opens his jaws wide, his
gigantic sharp teeth sparkle.
                                                            
The professor is in severe pain mixed with fear from hell,
that he doesn't make any sound.
                                                            
Professor's neck is between the Tiger's jaws now, about to
get crushed. The Tiger takes his time with it, enjoying the
moment.
                                                            
LOUD GUN SHOT!!!
                                                            
Jane stands there with the .44 magnum gun in her hand, still
smoking. The Tiger stares at her.
                                                            
                       JANE
      (petrified)
This was a warning shot... You
know what I mean. The next one...
                                                            
BLOOD SPLATTERS...
                                                            
The Tiger cuts her sentence off by shredding the professor's
neck with one bite, severing his head from his body. Blood
splatters on the floor and the Tiger's face.
                                                            
Jane instinctively squeezes the trigger once. BANG!
                                                            
The Tiger's torso bleeds from the left side. The Tiger looks
at Jane, can't believe she shot him . Jane and the Tiger
lock eyes for a moment. The Tiger shakes his head "NO" and
starts moving towards Jane.
                                                            
                       JANE
      (tears in her eyes)
Please!!! Stop...
                                                            
The Tiger moves faster and roars loudly with anger at Jane
as if she was a prey and he is launching an attack on it.
                                                            
BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! Jane unloads the gun at the Tiger.
Some bullets hit him and some miss him.
                                                            
The Tiger is down and bleeding. Jane drops the gun, then she
drops to her knees. Closes her eyes for a moment.
                                                            
ANGUISHED LOUD ROAR...
                                                            
Jane opens her eyes.Jane's POV: The Tiger is rising up again
but slowed down with gun wounds.
                                                            

17.

A MUCH LOUDER ROAR.
                                                            
Jane gets up on her feet and runs to the broken window,
climbs out the window through broken glass and wood and
leaps into the air without hesitation or even thinking.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
 
EXT. VILLA - GARDEN - OUTSIDE THE BROKEN WINDOW - NIGHT
                                                            
Five feet below the window, Jane lands roughly on the roof
of a SUV. Jane holds her ankle, it hurts. No time for that.
In agony she tries to get the off SUV's roof, to reach the
ground.
                                                            
Jane slips and falls hard on her back, on the ground.
                                                            
                       JANE
Oh! Damn it!
                                                            
Still on the ground - she looks at the broken window, but no
sign of the tiger.
                                                            
                       JANE
      (to herself)
Where the hell is it?!!!
                                                            
While she is on the ground, she sits up and opens the SUV
driver's door. She climbs in and closes the door.
                                                            
 
INT. SUV - NIGHT
                                                            
Jane pushes the ignition button, starting the engine.
                                                            
BAM !!!
                                                            
A heavy load lands on the SUV's roof and makes a dent in it.
                                                            
                       JANE
      (screams)
Ahhh!!!
                                                            
Jane throws the car into forward gear and pins the gas
pedal.
                                                            
 
EXT. GARDEN - NIGHT
                                                            
The SUV races to the closed high steel gates of the garden,
with the tiger over the roof of the SUV. The tiger is
bleeding from the gun shots he had received, yet he reaches

her left.
                                                            
HUGE PALM SMASHES THE WINDOW.
                                                            
 
INT. SUV - NIGHT
                                                            
                       JANE
      (terrified)
Oh!!! Stop it!!! Please...
                                                            
Claws grab Jane's left shoulder, scratches it. It bleeds.
                                                            
                       JANE
      (in pain)
Ahhh...
                                                            
Jane steers the driving wheel to the right and with both
feet hits the brakes.
                                                            
 
EXT. GARDEN - NIGHT
                                                            
The SUV screeches to a halt, sending the Tiger, flying off
the roof. The Tiger hits the ground and rolls over on it a
couple of times.
                                                            
On the ground, the Tiger moans in pain. Jane turns the SUV
and positions it to face the Tiger. The distance between the
Tiger and the SUV is about twenty feet.
                                                            
 
INT. SUV - NIGHT
                                                            
Jane just waits inside the car behind the wheel and looks at
the Tiger.
                                                            
                       JANE
      (loud)
I really hope you stay down.

The Tiger starts to rise.

Jane takes a deep breath.
                                                            

19.

Jane'S POV: The tiger rises up and the gates are about one
hundred yards behind him.
                                                            
                       JANE
      (loud)
You won't let me reach the gates,
will you?!!!
                                                            
 
EXT. GARDEN - NIGHT
                                                            
The Tiger shakes his head "No".
                                                            
 
INT. SUV - NIGHT
                                                            
Jane buckles up.
                                                            
                       JANE
      (cries out)
So be it...
                                                            
Jane hits the gas. Floors the SUV.
                                                            
 
EXT. GARDEN - NIGHT
                                                            
The Tiger looks so tired and his wounds are still bleeding.
                                                            
The SUV charges at the Tiger, rams into it and runs him over
like a bump on the road. The SUV bounces over his big body.
                                                            
                                         CUT TO:
                                                            
 
INT. SUV - NIGHT
                                                            
Jane drives the SUV over the Tiger. O.S. the Tiger screams.
The SUV shakes as it passes over him. Jane bounces with it.
Then the shaking and the Tiger's screaming are over.
                                                            
Jane is still driving the car. She looks in the rear view
mirror.
                                                            
Rear View Mirror: There is nothing on the ground. No Tiger.
                                                            
Jane's face is in a state of shock.
                                                            
                       JANE
      (stunned)
Where did he go?!
      (pause)
To hell with him, I am out of

Jane holds a remote control device in her hand. Points it at
the gates. She pushes a button to open up the gates. Nothing
happens. She tries again but no use, the gates just won't
open.
                                                            
                       JANE
      (low voice tone)
You locked me up... You son of a
bitch !!!
      (pause, realizes)

Jane opens the gloves compartment and gets another remote
control out of it. Puts it in her jacket's pocket. She scans

reluctantly gets out of the SUV.

when you sabotaged the gates, you

The door behind the Tiger closes. The Tiger turns his head
around and looks at the door. The Tiger is stunned, that
Jane locked herself in the cage with him inside it. The
Tiger turns his head back to Jane.

at the other side of the cage.

bars.
                                                            
The Tiger runs. Jane is terrified. Her heart beats out loud.
                                                            
The Tiger leaps into the air. Jane is still trying to get
out through the bars.

away from landing on Jane's half which is still inside the
cage.

                       JANE

steel nails under his fur.
