ARGENTA GOLD Feature Film Teaser FADE IN: EXT. REMOTE RIVERSIDE FOOT TRAIL - LITTLE ROCK AR. - NIGHT Rain falls and lighting cracks over the forest trail. Two American Choctaw Indian men make their way through driving rain as they move down a muddy trail leading a pack mule loaded with four small wooden boxes. 3D SUPER - ARKANSAS RIVERSIDE NEAR LITTLE ROCK ARKANSAS, 1865 Suddenly a tree falls across the narrow trail. The men stop and look behind them then back at the downed tree. MINGO (30’s), a tough looking Choctaw man with long beaded hair wearing leather pants and a wool shirt jacks a shell in his lever action rifle while watching the trail. His partner WOLF (40’s), an average bushy headed Choctaw with a scare across his face holds a double barrel shotgun with a sling, at the ready and a pistol in his belt as he watches the trail. MINGO (American Choctaw accent) They’re coming. WOLF (American Choctaw accent) To hell with them that’s our gold. MINGO Sheriff Mills doesn’t give a damn. He killed ten soldier’s to get it, killin us won’t make any difference. The mule is suddenly a little restless. Mingo and Wolf watch intently. WOLF They’re out there. MINGO He’s got four or five deputies.
WOLF Maybe we should stash the gold and hit the woods. Mingo looks up at the rain. MINGO Good thinkin. We can come back later. Wolf slings his shotgun and leads the mule off the trail to a rock outcropping. Wolf looks back at down the trail then around the rocks. He sees a hole in the outcropping. Wolf and Mingo go about their business of unloading the heavy boxes of gold coins. Wolf slides them in the hole. He stops and opens the last box and takes out a hand full of coins then slides it in and covers the hole with rocks and brush. WOLF We found this gold fair and square, it’s not right for them to come after it. MINGO Right’s got nothing to do with it. Mingo takes the pack gear off of the mule and rushes him away, then throws the gear off the trail into the woods. Wolf gives half the coins to Mingo dropping two, then Mingo takes his knife and carves a crude thunderbolt on the stone. WOLF Let’s go. (Mingo looks for the dropped coins) Let’s go. They hear a limb crack, then a gunshot. The bullet hits a large rock outcropping next to them. SHERIFF MILLS (40’s) a heavy man yells from the darkness in the woods. SHERIFF MILLS (O.S.) (American Southern accent) End of the line. You injuns give me my gold. Mingo pull his pistol and fires as he an Wolf take off through the woods.
Gunfire flashes ringing out from the woods where the sheriff is. Wolf is hit in the hand and drops his coin as he runs. Voices are heard, the sheriff and GRANT (30’s), a slim, green tooth deputy become visible as they walk from the woods. The rain continues to fall as the sheriff and Grant try to see where Mingo and Wolf went. Two other heavily armed deputies come out of the woods talking in the background. GRANT (American Southern accent) Those injuns are headed for their village. SHERIFF MILLS Get ta trackin, if those blanketasses get home, they’ll be no gettin’em at all. Let’s go. The deputy sees the coin Wolf dropped and picks it up looking it over. GRANT Look at this. One of them new Liberty gold twenties. Lighting flashes and the Mule is visible in the distance under a tree. The sheriff notices while rain drips off of his hat brim. SHERIFF MILLS They got no mule and cain’t carrying all of that gold. Those scallywags must have stashed the double eagles round here. GRANT What now? The Sheriff’s eyes search the area. FREEZE FRAME: FADE TO TITLE: ROLL CREDITS: End of Teaser
