“Risico” GUNBARREL EXT. MILITARY BASE-CHECKPOINT BRAVO -NIGHT The final dot spreads out to reveal a military base in the middle of a cold, snowy landscape. SUPERIMPOSED TITLE: Siberia We zoom in on the gate/entrance to the base. Three Russian guards are standing by as a jeep pulls up to it. Out steps a man known only as BOB. He is a muscular man in a warm jacket and he is followed by several other men. RUSSIAN GUARD (In Russian) You can’t go through here. The seven men behind Bob pull out guns and shoot the guards. Bob stands there a smiles. He starts to walk up towards the base while three men stay behind to take the place of the guards. INT. MILITARY BASE-SECURITY OFFICE –NIGHT A RUSSIAN OFFICER is sitting at the computer. The Officer looks at the screen and sees Bob and his men enter the building with guns. He runs over and grabs the phone.
OFFICER (In Russian) I think we have aHe doesn’t finish before the door opens behind him. Bob steps in with a gun and shoots the officer in the head. Bob then hangs up the phone. INT. MILITARY BASE-PRISON HALLWAY –NIGHT The men are walking down a prison hallway. Many of the cells are empty besides a few with men sleeping. INT. MILITARY BASE-SOLITARY CONFINEMENT-CONTINUOUS The men then proceed to enter a short hallway at the end of which is a large metal door. Bob steps in behind the men. MAN 1 He is in there? Bob nods and walks over to the door. He takes out a keycard that he stole from the Officer and swipes it on the door causing it to slowly open. INT. CELL-CONTINUOUS Bob steps in and smiles. CLOSE ON CWOSHIN: CWHOSHIN, a middle-aged Japanese man, stands up. He is
dressed in a brown prison suit. BOB So you’re still alive? Cwoshin glares at him. Bob smiles again and takes a gun from one of his men and throws it to Cwoshin. CWOSHIN I never liked you much, JBOB I don’t go by that name anymore. CWOSHIN (Laughs) What should I call you now? Bob? BOB Sure. They turn and leave the room. EXT. LONDON-OUTSIDE MI6 –DAY Our establishing shot of MI6. SUPERIMPOSED TITLE: London, MI6 Headquarters INT. MI6-SITUATION ROOM –DAY We enter the situation room from the elevator to see people
sitting in their seats looking at computers. We continue to make our way over to BILL TANNER who is standing next to CHARLES ROBINSON. TANNER (To Advisor) Get me a satellite look at the base before we end up walking into a death trap. The ADVISOR nods and walks away. TANNER Last thing we need is him walking into a bloody death trap. Robinson nods and puts his hand up to his ear. He is wearing a headset. ROBINSON (Into headset) Got it. (To Tanner) We’ve got a problem. Tanner’s eyes widen. EXT. MILITARY BASE-CHECKPOINT ALPHA –NIGHT A helicopter flies overhead and lands in a nearby
courtyard. More trucks start to drive into the base through the checkpoint. INT. MI6-SITUATION ROOM –DAY Tanner is furious and runs up to the front of the room. TANNER (To Advisor) Do we have imaging yet? ADVISOR We’re getting it. TANNER Get it faster! (To Robinson) Contact them and tell them to hold back. Robinson looks over to Tanner. ROBINSON That could be hard. EXT. FOREST –NIGHT From the trees we can see the nearby military base. We are in the middle of a joint operation between the CIA and MI6. Agent CHRIS GALLAGHER, member of the CIA, is laying in the
snow looking at the base through binoculars. GALLAGHER’S POV We see the jeeps continuing in. Gallagher stands and makes his way over into a clearing in the forest where 005 is standing. GALLAGHER 005, it looks like the jeeps are carrying something with them. 005 Bastards are probably bringing in explosives to blow the base. Gallagher, see if you can get a lock on Cwoshin. Gallagher nods and runs off while 005 puts on his headset. INT. MI6-SITUATION ROOM –INTERCUT AS NEEDED Tanner is looking back at the crowd of people when Robinson walks up to him. ROBINSON It’s 005. TANNER Give me the headset.
Robinson hands him the headset while he is given another by the Advisor. TANNER (Into headset) What’s going on, 005? 005 Tanner, they’re bringing something into the base with the jeeps. It seems that Cwoshin’s getaway vehicle is a chopper. Tanner sighs and looks at Robinson who’s listening in on the conversation. TANNER (To Robinson) Get the head in here. Robinson nods and runs off. 005 I’m going to have to go off for a while. TANNER WaitIt’s too late and the line goes dead. Tanner throws off the
headset. TANNER (To Advisor) Anything? ADVISOR They’re jamming us. Tanner turns toward the screen in the front of the room. EXT. FOREST –NIGHT Gallagher is still watching the base when 005 runs over to him. 005 We’re going to have to take the base. GALLAGHER Us against all of them? It’s suicide. 005 (Pause) We have something though. He smiles. EXT. MILITARY BASE-CHECKPOINT BRAVO –NIGHT
The jeeps are not coming into the base from this side so two of the fake guards have left. Now only one FAKE GUARD remains and he is rubbing his hands together as a bundled figure walks over. FAKE GUARD Aren’t you supposed to be on the other side of base? The FIGURE does not respond. FAKE GUARD Who are you? The Figure punches him in the face and the Fake Guard drops to the ground. The Figure pulls down his mask. CLOSE ON JAMES BOND, 007 BOND takes out his gun and places the silencer. As the Fake Guard turns to get up Bond shoots him twice in the chest. BOND (Into earpiece) North entrance is clear. INT. MI6-SITUATION ROOM –DAY Tanner is standing at the front of the room still as the elevator doors open. Robinson steps out followed by two other agents. Robinson turns and another person steps out
of the elevator. CLOSE ON M M walks forward toward Tanner and Robinson follows. M What’s the situation as of now? TANNER They’re jamming us, ma’am. We can’t get a picture of the base. They also seem to be bringing in a chopper and a couple jeeps. M What are the jeeps carrying? TANNER We don’t know. M Find out. (To Robinson) Who do we have there now? Robinson opens a folder and hands it to M. ROBINSON Agent Christopher Gallagher of the CIA and 005 are there.
M I thought the CIA were sending more men? Robinson shrugs and goes back to working at the computer. TANNER I ended up giving the order to send another. M Who? EXT. MILTIARY BASE-COURTYARD –NIGHT Bond leans against the wall and looks around the corner to see jeeps parked everywhere being unloaded. The chopper is sitting in the courtyard as well. Bond pulls out a tiny camera and snaps a picture. He then starts to push buttons. INT. MI6-SITUATION ROOM –DAY Robinson leans closer to a computer. ROBINSON I’m getting images from another agent in the area. TANNER
Pull them up on the screen. Robinson types something into the computer and the pictures Bond took pop up on the main screen. The pictures include the chopper and explosives hidden in boxes. TANNER Christ. M What agent sent these? Robinson types another thing into the computer. ROBINSON (Pause) Bond. M’s eyes narrow and M glances over at Tanner who shrugs. EXT. MILITARY BASE-COURTYARD –NIGHT Bond puts the camera away and takes out his gun. A guard nears the corner and Bond dispatches him by breaking his neck. Bond looks around before quickly running into some nearby doors. INT. MILITARY BASE-PRISON HALLWAY-CONTINUOUS
Bond hugs the wall and finds himself on the balcony above the prison hallway. He looks down to see the men planting some explosives. BOND (Quietly-sarcastically) Wonderful. Down below on the main floor, Bob and his right hand man, DECK, make they’re way through the crowd with Cwoshin following. Bond watches and sees the three men. He takes out his camera and takes a picture of the three. INT. MI6-SITUATION ROOM ROBINSON Another picture. The picture of Bob, Deck, and Cwoshin appears on the main screen. TANNER (To M) There’s Cwoshin, but who are the other men. M (To Advisor)
Crosscheck those two men with Cwoshin. Find out who they are. The elevator door opens again and out steps VILLIERS. He walks over to M and hands over a folder before turning and leaving the room. M Damn. TANNER What? M (To Robinson) Get Bond out of there now. Robinson picks up his headset and tries to test it, but fails. ROBINSON It’s dead. M sighs. INT. MILITARY BASE-PRISON HALLWAY Bond makes his way quietly down the balcony while hugging the wall. He takes out a tiny detonator and places it on the wall.
The hallway has now started to clear out leaving Bob, Cwoshin, Deck, and a few others. Bond takes out a grenade and chucks it by a few of the men. He ducks down. The grenade detonates taking out the men. Bob and Deck turn while Cwoshin starts firing up at the balcony. BOB Who is that? Cwoshin glares at him. CWOSHIN Screw it, they know we’re here. Cwoshin runs out of the room. Bob turns to Deck. BOB Make sure whoever it is doesn’t leave here. Deck nods and Bob leaves the room. Bond jumps down from the balcony and lands in front of Deck. Before he can fire, Deck chucks a pipe at him which hits him in the arm causing him to drop his gun. BOND Damn it!
Deck runs at him, but Bond dodges sending Deck into an empty box. Bond quickly tries to grab his gun, but is stopped when Deck grabs onto his leg. Bond falls to the ground, but kicks Deck in the face. Down the hall an explosive goes off causing a chain reaction of explosives, which destroy the solitary confinement section. Bond stands up and runs toward the gun. Deck picks up one of the dead guard’s guns and fires at Bond who hides behind a wall. Bond turns and fires back at Deck hitting him in the hand. Before Bond can fire again he finds the gun out of bullets. BOND Figures. He puts the gun away and runs at Deck who flips him over onto the floor. Bond hits it with a thump hurting him badly. Some of the electrical wires start to fall as more explosives go off. Bond takes out another detonator and throws it next to some explosives before Deck picks him up and throws him at the wall. Bond makes his way up and as Deck goes to punch him, Bond dodges and Deck’s hand hits the way. Deck screams out in pain delaying himself long enough for Bond to take an
electrical wire and shove it in Deck’s mouth. The electrocution kills Deck immediately. Bond fixes his tie before running out of the building. EXT. MILITARY BASE-CHECKPOINT ALPHA Cwoshin and Bob board the chopper. 005 and Gallagher turn up and fire at some of the other guards in the car killing a few. Bond pops out of a nearby door and punches another guard. INT. CHOPPER Bob and Cwoshin sit down before Bob gives the PILOT the signal to get out of there. EXT. MILITARY BASE-COURTYARD The chopper starts to take off. The shootout continues with the guards as some of the jeeps pull away. Bond takes a machine gun and fires at some of the guards killing them. EXT. CHECKPOINT ALPHA-CONTINUOUS Bond runs off into the checkpoint while some of the guards continue to fire at him. He makes his way over to 005 and Gallagher. BOND Nice of you to come.
005 Who the hell sent you? BOND Does it matter? Bond fires at some of the guards before running out of ammo. BOND I need a clip. Gallagher hands him one and Bond fires again hitting one of the guards. GALLAGHER I don’t think we really need to worry about them now. Bond and 005 turn to Gallagher who is now looking up as a black helicopter nears. INT. BLACK CHOPPER A GUNNER takes out his machine gun. EXT. CHECKPOINT ALPHA 005 Head to the forest. As the three stand up and run the chopper begins to fire at
them. One of the clips hit 005 in the leg causing him to drop to the ground. Bond and Gallagher continue to run. Gallagher hesitates, but Bond grabs him and continues to pull him toward the forest. A guard walks over to 005 and kicks away his gun. GUARD Who do you work for? 005 rolls over and spits at him. This angers the guard causing him to take out his gun and shoot 005 three times, killing him. EXT. FOREST Bond and Gallagher dive into the forest as the chopper flies overhead, not getting a clear shot. They look over at the base. GALLAGHER They got him. Bond, who wasn’t watching, turns to see the guard walk away from 005’s body. The chopper lands near him and picks him up. GALLAGHER (To Bond)
Now what? Do we investigate the base? INT. MILITARY BASE-PRISON HALLWAY The detonators are revealed to have a countdown that nears zero. EXT. FOREST BOND Not exactly. EXT. MILITARY BASE-COURTYARD Some of the men are standing around beforeBASE EXPLODES EXT. FOREST Bond and Gallagher watch the base explode in the distance. GALLAGHER You or them? Bond just smiles and heads off into the forest. Gallagher shakes his head and follows wearily. EXT. MILITARY BASE As the base continues to burn the black chopper flies overhead as we-
DISSOLVE INTO: Main Titles FADE IN: EXT. OIL RIG-PLATFORM –NIGHT We see the chopper land on an abandoned oil rig. Out steps Bob and Cwoshin. Bob looks around a moment before continuing to walk to a door. INT. OIL RIG-CONTROL ROOM –NIGHT Bob and Cwoshin enter a control room built by them for this platform as a base. BOB (To Cwoshin) Don’t touch anything. Cwoshin walks away while Bob walks up to JACOB HILTON, his boss. BOB (To Hilton) I’m back. Hilton turns to look at him. HILTON Success?
Bob nods and Hilton smiles. The door behind them opens and they turn to see the guard who shot 005 enter the room. BOB Who are you? HILTON (To Bob) No need to get upset over this. His name is Sergei and he works for us now. BOB Another Russian. Bob turns away to look at the room’s main screen, which currently shows a building in Venice. SERGEI (To Bob) I’m ex-KGB. (To Hilton) Hilton, one of my old friends knows where that building is. Hilton stands there a moment before turning to look at Sergei. INT. CATHEDRAL –NIGHT
The cathedral is filled with people for 005’s funeral that has just ended. Some are filing out such as Robinson and M, but Bond remains seated in the front row looking at the coffin. BOND (Quietly) I’m sorry. Tanner, who is ushering people out, sees Bond and walks over to him and sits down. TANNER It’s not your fault you know. BOND Maybe not, but I didn’t go back for him. TANNER You were being chased by a chopper, James, don’t be hard on yourself because you wanted to live. Bond stands up and walks over to the coffin. He stands in front of it for a moment in silence. BOND The man who killed him. He looked(Pause)
Familiar. TANNER Did you get a picture of him? Bond shakes his head and puts his hand on the coffin. He turns to Tanner. BOND Cwoshin is gone though. The mission was unsuccessful. TANNER Maybe on some levels, but not on them all. Tanner walks over to him and pats him on the back. TANNER Not every job ends successfully, James. You must understand that. Tanner walks away leaving Bond alone in the cathedral besides the PRIEST in the background. Bond stands there another moment before walking over to the coffin. On top is a picture of him and 005. Bond looks at the picture and then takes a tag out of his pocket. We don’t get a good look at it until he walks away and it is revealed to be 005’s ID tag.
EXT. CATHEDRAL COURTYARD-MOMENTS LATER Bond steps out of the cathedral and over into the mass of people who are standing around talking. He looks around and then heads away from the crowd. EXT. OUTSIDE MI6 –NIGHT Our establishing shot. INT. MI6-HALLWAY –NIGHT Bond is walking through the hallway. He nods in acknowledgement to those that pass him by as he entersINT. MI6-MONEYPENNY’S OFFICE-CONTINUOUS MISS MONEYPENNY is sitting at her desk typing on the computer when Bond walks over to her. BOND Is M in there? MONEYPENNY No small talk today? BOND Glad to hear that you actually enjoy the conversations. Moneypenny smiles and presses a button on the phone. It glows red.
MONEYPENNY Go on in. Bond nods and opens the door to enterINT. MI6-M’S OFFICE-CONTINUOUS Bond shuts the door behind him and sees M sitting behind her desk as if expecting him to have been coming. M Sit. Bond sits down across from M’s desk. M We’re all sorry about 005’s death. I’m sureBOND (Cutting in) I’m past that now. M nods and points the back wall. M takes out a remote and points it at the wall. The wall opens to reveal a screen. One the screen is a picture of Jacob Hilton. M The men that helped escape Cwoshin could not be identified.
Bond looks at the screen then turns back to M. BOND He was not among the men that helped Cwoshin escape. M No, but we believe they were working for that man. M points to the screen and Bond turns to look back at the screen again. M His name is Jacob Hilton. Used to be a member of the organization we called SPECTRE. Since you destroyed that organization he’s been underground. (beat) We’ve been looking for him for quite some time now. BOND What makes you think he was involved? M points the remote at the screen again and the picture changes to a logo. The logo is a triangle with a HJ on it.
M Remnants of the boxes at the abandoned military base held that symbol that belongs to Hilton. (Pause) He’s been getting sloppy now. BOND (Turning) You think he’s working alone? M Possibly. Or possibly he’s found someone to work for. BOND Any ideas? M (Shaking head) No. M stands up and walks over to some drawers on the side of the room and takes out a folder. M hands it to Bond and takes a seat. BOND (Holding up folder) What’s this for?
M We need you to find him. Bond searches through the folder to see fake identification and papers for him. BOND Where exactly am I searching for him at? M smiles. EXT. VENICE, ITALY-STREETS –DAY Establishing shot Venice. SUPERIMPOSED TITLE: VENICE, ITALY Bond is walking through the streets of Venice and continues on into aINT. BAR-CONTINUOUS He sees somebody sitting at the bar in front of him. He walks over and sits down. BARTENDER Can I get you something to drink, sir? BOND Vodka martini, shaken not stirred.
The BARTENDER nods and walks away an Bond turns to the man next to him. BOND And what are you here for? The man turns revealing FELIX LEITER of the CIA. LEITER (Smiles) James Bond. BOND Felix. The Bartender hands Bond his drink. Bond takes a sip of it and puts it down. LEITER I see you still drink the garbage. BOND And for you? Leiter holds up a bottle of beer. BOND Very original. Leiter laughs and has a sip of his beer before putting it down.
LEITER It seems that MI6 has found out the same information we have. BOND On Hilton? Leiter nods and looks around before leaning closer. LEITER We have reason to believe that he’s here in Italy to do bidding for somebody. BOND He’s not heading the operation? LEITER No. (Pause) My partner and I are on it. If you’d like to tag along I can make that happen. BOND You can tag along with me. Bond smiles and finishes his drink. EXT. STREETS OF ITALY-MOMENTS LATER
Bond and Leiter are walking through the crowded streets. BOND Who is your partner anyway? LEITER His name’s Gallagher. Bond stops walking and Leiter turns to him. LEITER You know him? BOND He was with me when a friend was killed. Bond walks past Leiter fast. Leiter stands there and watches him go by. We zoom back to see Sergei sitting at a table outside the bar watching Bond and Leiter. We see Leiter run after Bond. Sergei stands and begins to follow them. EXT. ALLEY –DAY Bond makes his way through the alley and into a building. Leiter follows him into the building. INT. BUILDING-MAIN FLOOR-CONTINUOUS As Leiter enters he looks around, but doesn’t see Bond as
he turns Bond grabs his arm. LEITER What are youBOND Quiet. (Pause) We’re being followed. EXT. ALLEY –DAY Sergei turns and enters the alley. He pulls out his gun and we see a few THUGS enter the alley with guns as well. Sergei motions towards the door. A thug nods and breaks the door down. INT. BUILDING-MAIN FLOOR-CONTINUOUS They enter the building and look around, but find it empty. Sergei enters behind them. SERGEI (In Russian) Find them. As one thug turns to go up the stairs he is shot by Bond. Bond turns around and runs up the stairs. INT. BUILDING-SECOND FLOOR-CONTINUOUS
Bond turns to Leiter who is waiting to shoot. BOND We have to split up. One of the thugs tries to make it up the stairs, but is shot by Leiter. LEITER Got it! Bond turns and runs up another flight of stairs and barges through a door onto theEXT. ROOFTOPS-CONTINUOUS Bond stands there a moment before spotting a thug on the other rooftop. He shoots at Bond, but Bond dodges it and starts to run to the next rooftop. The thug follows. INT. BUILDING-SECOND FLOOR –DAY Leiter turns and jumps out the window landing in theEXT. ALLEY-CONTINUOUS He rolls over and quickly runs out of the alley into the streets. Sergei exits the building and looks around to see Bond jump overtop. SERGEI (Points)
There! EXT. ROOFTOPS –DAY Bond quickly hides himself behind a house’s chimney as the thug continues firing at him. Bond takes out his gun again and fires back, but misses. He looks to the next rooftop to see more thugs emerging. He fires a few times taking out three before jumping to the next rooftop. He makes it, but almost falls. Before the thug behind him can fire Bond drops down to an alley. EXT. ALLEY/STREETS OF ITALY-CONTINUOUS Bond runs out of the alley into the streets as the thug up top continues to fire. Bond turns and shoots the thug who falls off the roof. Bond looks back to see Sergei. BOND Bastard. Before Bond can shoot him Sergei fires and Bond is forced to jump onto a boat on the canal. The TOUR GUIDE in the boat jumps off onto the street and Bond quickly starts the motor on the back of it. Sergei
fires, but misses and quickly ducks down before Bond can shoot. The boat starts to cruise down the canal as thugs jump into another boat and start to chase him. Bond fires and hits a thug who falls into the waters and is hit by a second thug boat that Sergei is driving. Leiter, who is on the bridge above the canal sees Bond in trouble. As soon as Bond passes Leiter jumps onto the boat filled with thugs and fights them. Bond looks back and smiles, but realizes Sergei still has to be dealt with. Sergei’s boat bumps Bond’s causing them to drop their guns. Before Sergei can picks his up Bond jumps onto his boat and kicks him in the face. Leiter continues fighting the thugs until they are all defeated, which is intercut with Bond vs. Sergei. Bond and Sergei continue fighting until the boat goes into theEXT. OCEAN WATERS OUTSIDE VENICE-CONTINUOUS The two continue to fight on the boat. EXT. STREETS OF VENICE –DAY Leiter steps off the boat when Gallagher runs over and shoots one of the thugs about to hurt Leiter.
GALLAGHER What happened? Leiter points out toward Bond and Sergei on the boat that is heading for a cruise ship. LEITER Bond. Leiter walks past him while Gallagher squints to see the fight on the boat. EXT. WATERS OUTSIDE VENICE –DAY The fight on the boat continues until they realize that they are about to crash into the cruise ship. Sergei punches Bond before grabbing onto a rope hanging from the cruise ship and climbing it to the top. Bond jumps off the boat before it goes and is crushed by the cruise ship. INT. CAPTAIN’S QUARTERS –DAY On the cruise ship a WORKER enters the CAPTAIN’S quarters. WORKER We’ve hit a bump, sir. The Captain looks up at him. CAPTAIN Maybe we hit a reef.
EXT. WATERS OUTSIDE VENICE –DAY Bond kicks up to the surface to see Sergei board the cruise ship. Bond grabs the same rope and begins to climb it to the top and onto theEXT. CRUISE SHIP-DECKS-CONTINUOUS Bond falls to the deck and breathes heavily. He stands up and sees Sergei pushing past people. The chase continues throughout the decks of the boat before Bond corners him at theEXT. CRUISE SHIP-STERN-CONTINUOUS Bond takes out his recovered gun and points it at Sergei who stands up and breathes heavily. SERGEI Pull trigger. Kill me. BOND Who do you work for? Sergei spits at him and Bond takes off the safety. BOND Is it Jacob Hilton? SERGEI You agents are all the same, you
know. All are cocky until the end when they bleed like the rest of us. Bond pulls the trigger and shoots Sergei in the arm. Sergei gasps in pain. BOND I was always told not to let them see me bleed. Bond kicks Sergei who drops to the ground. Bond points the gun at his head. SERGEI Do it! Bond hesitates for a moment. The moment is long enough for Sergei to kick Bond in the shin. Bond drops the gun and as he tries to grab it Sergei jumps off the ship and into the waters. Bond stands up with the gun to see the waters still again. He sighs and puts the gun away. He starts to walk away before the Worker stops him. WORKER I thought I heard a gunshot from here.
Bond thinks for a moment before grabbing his stomach. BOND Seasickness. The worker backs away as Bond pretends to be getting sick and walks away. EXT. STREETS OF ITALY –MOMENTS LATER Bond is back on the streets walking around. He walks past an alley, but then backtracks and looks in to see some boxes being taken out of the building with Hilton’s symbol on them. Bond takes out the tiny camera and snaps a few pictures of it. He quickly sends them to MI6. The men get into the truck and drive away with the boxes. Bond begins to follow it on foot, but loses it as it moves too fast. He stands there watching it drive away. As he turns and walks away the camera falls out of his pocket. BOND What’s in the boxes? INT. HOTEL ROOM –NIGHT Bond is putting on a suit when there is a knock at the door. Bond carefully looks through the peephole and opens the door revealing Leiter and Gallagher.
BOND (Shutting door) It was nice of you to drop in before. LEITER They would’ve killed you if I hadn’t. (Looks around) Where’s the other guy? BOND He took a leap of faith of the ship and lived. GALLAGHER He’s gone? Bond nods and throws them both glasses. He opens a bottle of wine and pours it into the glasses. BOND (Raises glass) To one hell of a day. LEITER I’ll drink to that. Bond smiles and before he can drink the phone rings. Bond goes over and answers it.
BOND (Into phone) Yes? INT. MONEYPENNY’S OFFICE –INTERCUT AS NEEDED Moneypenny is sitting at her desk with the phone. MONEYPENNY We need you back here in London quickly. BOND What happened? MONEYPENNY I’m not that high of clearance. (beat) They need you back here by tomorrow afternoon. BOND I’ll be there. He hangs up the phone and turns to Leiter and Gallagher. BOND I have to leave for London tomorrow. GALLAGHER
I’ll get the ticket for you. Gallagher leaves the room. LEITER (Watches) They made him my new protégé. I guess since I used to be Gregg Beam’s they might as well make me teach someone. (Pause) I think we might as well call it a night. BOND That’s it? LEITER Well if you had that guy we might have something more to talk about. Bond stands there a moment before realizing something. BOND His name is Sergei Lukencov. (beat) Check that name out. Leiter nods and leaves the room. Bond stands there a moment having another sip of wine before there is a knock at the
door. Bond opens it to reveal a WOMAN. WOMAN I have your tickets. She hands them to Bond. BOND Thank you, miss. Your hotel is very handy here. WOMAN I’ll pass that on. She leaves and Bond shuts the door, sighing. He takes one final look around the room. EXT. MI6 –DAY Establishing shot. INT. MI6-CONFERENCE ROOM –DAY Bond exits the elevator into the conference room. Noticeable faces are Tanner, Robinson, and M at the head of the table. Villiers is handing out papers. VILLIERS (Hands to Bond) There you go. BOND
Thanks. Villiers nods and leaves. Bond sits down. BOND What happened? M We experienced a flaw in the plan, 007. INT. OIL RIG-CONTROL ROOM –DAY Hilton is standing in front of the screen. He turns and looks at Sergei who has entered the room. HILTON What happened? SERGEI He knows who I am. HILTON (Pause) Who? SERGEI An agent. HILTON (Sighs)
He must be dealt with quickly. Did he see what was in the boxes. Sergei motions for the men to drop the box on a table. He shakes his head. SERGEI No. CWOSHIN (O.S.) Doesn’t matter. He’ll find us and he’ll unravel the whole plan. He’s our biggest problem now. Cwoshin walks over and throws Bond’s tiny camera onto the table. CWOSHIN The agent has some pictures. Hilton turns to Sergei. HILTON I don’t like failure. He pulls out a gun and aims at Sergei, but doesn’t fire. He puts the gun away. HILTON (To Cwoshin) You will now oversee all the
exports and imports. Cwoshin nods and walks away. Sergei stands there and looks at the ground. HILTON Don’t fail me again. Sergei nods. INT. MI6-CONFERENCE ROOM –DAY M A few hours ago we received a call from a man who called himself only by a name. TANNER (Cutting in) An alias. Bond turns and looks at M. BOND Who? M We don’t know who he is. All we know is that he told us we don’t know what we’re getting involved with.
(Pause) Then we traced the call. BOND Where’d it come from? M Hamburg, Germany. On the screen at the front of the room a message appears. MONEYPENNY (O.S.) (On phone) Call from Prime Minister Roger Connors. M Put him onscreen. There is a moment of silence before Prime Minister ROGER CONNORS appears on the screen. CONNORS What’s the urgency, M? M We believe that there is going to be an attempt on your life. Bond, who was leaning back, leans forward.
CONNORS What? M We received a message from a mysterious party that there would be an attempt on your life in the next few days. This may be a diversion from our main mission. CONNORS I’d like to speak to you personally tomorrow at my office. M nods and the Prime Minister vanishes from the screen. BOND Is it serious? M We don’t know, but we believe Hilton is behind this. The pictures you took proves that Hilton is up to something. BOND Intelligence from the CIA suggests that Hilton is working for some big shot that keeps a low profile.
TANNER Who? BOND (Pause) They don’t know either. Tanner sighs and starts to pace around the room. COLONEL (To M) Do we know if we must really take agents out of the field to protect the Prime Minister? M We shouldn’t take any chances. If the Prime Minister is killed then we have no chance of knowing where we stand. (To Bond) Was there anything else you found in Venice of importance? BOND The man who shot 005. I know who he is. TANNER
Who? BOND His name is Sergei Lukencov. I looked him up and found he was exKGB. One of my old assignments mentioned him. We met and I almost killed him, but there was an explosion that gave him time to escape. (To M) This is serious, ma’am. M sighs and turns to a nearby GENERAL. M Get agents out of the field and onto the Prime Minister’s protection team. (To Robinson) See what you can find on this Lukencov. People start leaving the room, but Tanner, Bond, and M stay behind. Villiers comes in and out picking up papers. M (To Villiers) Wait outside.
VILLIERS Yes, ma’am. Villiers leaves the room and closes the doors behind him. TANNER Now what? BOND I want the alias of the caller. It may help me find out what’s going on. M No. You don’t need to know it. (beat) I need you to go to Hamburg. BOND I can’t track down a caller if I don’t know who he is or where he called from. M You’re not going there to track him down. A new casino has opened there with an old friend of yours. If we can connect Hilton to this Sergei then maybe we’ll be able to find
out the meaning of this mess. TANNER Who is this old friend of his? BOND He won’t know anything. M Check it out, Bond. (To Tanner) Leave. Tanner nods and exits the room. M sits back down across from Bond. M Did you kill Sergei? BOND (Long pause) No. M Why not? BOND There was something about him. I couldn’t kill him the first time either.
M There was no explosion, was there? Bond shakes his head and avoid M’s glance. BOND I’ll get him if I see him again. M Now he’s probably gone running off to Hilton and Hilton’s gone running off to his own boss. BOND It only happened once, M. I won’t let it happen again and I’ll give you my word on that. M You’re not the same. BOND People change. M When 005 died I thought for certain you’d go off on the killer the moment you saw him, but you didn’t. Why?
BOND (Long pause) Things change as do people. (Another pause) I changed. Bond stands up and begins to leave the room. M (Looking forward) There’s something for you downstairs. Don’t leave this building for Hamburg until you pay downstairs a visit. Bond opens the door and leaves the room. M continues to stare forward. INT. MI6-HALLWAY-CONTINUOUS Bond starts to walk through the hall when Tanner runs up to him. TANNER What did she say? BOND I have to pay a visit to the basement.
TANNER You were in there a while for M just to tell you that. Bond holds Tanner by the arm and stops walking. BOND What was the caller’s alias? TANNER I can’t tell you. Bond pushes Tanner against the wall though people don’t pay notice. BOND What was the alias? TANNER (Nervous) I can’t tell you. BOND Why? Tanner does not reply causing Bond to begin to choke him. BOND Why?! TANNER
M told me not to. Bond stands there a moment in silence. He stops choking Tanner and lets him go. BOND (Quietly) Why? TANNER I don’t know, but maybe M was right about you. You are as blind as can be when your rage takes over. Tanner looks at him in disgust before walking away. Bond sighs and begins to walk away. INT. MI6-STAIRWAY-CONTINUOUS Bond is making his way down the long staircase. INT. BASEMENT-CONTINUOUS Bond enters the basement and closes the door to the stairwell. He walks along until he reaches a metal door. He looks at the retinal scanner. SCANNER VOICE Identification confirmed. (Pause) Welcome, 007.
The door opens and Bond steps intoINT. Q LAB-CONTINUOUS There are all sorts of gadgets around the room. The door closes behind Bond and he sees Q standing next to a wall. Bond makes his way over to him. BOND Extra security now. Bond points to the door. Q (Turns around) Oh it’s you. (Points to wall) Watch this. Q puts his hand in his pocket and takes out a lighter. BOND I don’t need to smoke right now, Q. If I remember you don’t either. Q This isn’t for smoking, 007. That is unless you don’t want to be burnt. Q opens it and a tiny flame appears.
BOND (Smiles) Oh I’m burning alright. Q points the lighter and the wall and hits a hidden button. The flame extends a large amount of feet and sets the wallpaper on fire. Q I call it a flamethrower. Q hands it to Bond. BOND (Examining) Very original. Q rolls his eyes and leads Bond over to a table filled with gadgets. He picks up a watch. Q You’re newest watch. This one has an update that now allows you use the battery as a detonator if you’re desperate, but here’s hoping you won’t need to tell time after. Bond takes the watch and puts it on. Q
(Pointing to shoe) You remember that? Bond goes over and examines the shoe. He knocks the side of it and a knife comes out. BOND You still have this? Q In fact I do. In the background an advisor touches a suitcase that electrocutes him. He falls to the ground. BOND What’s so special about the shoe? Q We’ve update it if you must know now. Q picks up another shoe. He taps the side and the knife flies out of the shoe and into the wall. Q Run out of bullets and shoot your adversary with a shoot. BOND (Smiles)
I can take a stab at it. Q You may have joked around with my predecessor, but I will not tolerate it. BOND He told you I’m the reason he retired? Q Yes and I can’t imagine why. Bond pulls the knife out of the wall. Q Follow me. INT. GARAGE –MOMENTS LATER Q leads Bond into the garage full of cars that some may recognize from other Bond films. They walk through the cars over to one that is covered. Q I present you with your new car. He pulls the cover off to reveal a Bugatti Veyron. Bond walks over and examines it.
BOND I’ll take it. Q takes out the keys. Bond tries to grab at it, but Q pulls them back. Q The car is fitted with all the necessary items. Missiles, machine guns, thermal imaging, the whole ten yards. Q holds out the keys again, but Bond fails to get them as Q pulls back. Q I want you to tell me that you will bring this car back in absolute pristine condition or I’ll be the one taking a stab at you. Bond grabs the keys from Q. BOND (Smiling) Don’t I always. Bond opens the car door and sits in it. Q looks at him inside.
Q It is also fitted with a security system. It will only respond to agents fingerprints as long as you keep it on. Bond turns the car on. CAR VOICE Good afternoon, 007. Q Last time my predecessor gave you a car with a feminine voice so I thought it’d be fitting. Bond smiles at him and then revs the car up. Q (Shouting up revving) Try to keep it in one piece! BOND Wouldn’t dream of cracking it in two. Bond opens the garage door and drives out at full speed. Q (Sighs)
I wish I could retire. EXT. STREETS OF GERMANY-OUTSIDE CASINO –NIGHT Bond pulls up to the casino in the car. He steps out and hands the keys to the valet. BOND (In German) Be careful with her. Bond nods and walks away leaving the valet to watch him go. The valet goes to open the door and gets a little shock. INT. CASINO-MAIN FLOOR –MOMENTS LATER Bond enters the crowded casino. We go through a few shots of people gambling their money away at different tables and slot machines. Bond quietly makes his way over to the bar. BARTENDER #2 What would you like? BOND I’d like a drink with 3 measures of Gordon's gin, 1 measure of vodka, ½ measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it until ice cold and serve in a deep champagne goblet with a large thin
slice of lemon peel. The bartender nods and runs off while a woman, SAMANTHA RAPTURE, sits down next to him. SAMANTHA Quite a mouthful there. (Extends hand) Samantha Rapture. And you are? BOND (Smiles) Bond, James Bond. He shakes her hand and she sits down next to him. SAMANTHA You don’t look like a man on a mission to gamble. In fact you don’t look like you fit in here at all. BOND I’m here to see an old friend. I’m told he owns the place. The bartender gives Bond his drink which he sips throughout the conversation. SAMANTHA
You know him? (beat) Is it true he was almost killed a while back. BOND Not that long ago. Samantha turns and looks out at the casino. SAMANTHA Do you plan on playing? BOND (Pause-confused) Why do you ask? SAMANTHA (Pointing) There’s a man over there looking at you. Do you know him? Bond looks over at MR. KING, who is sitting at a poker table. BOND No, but I think it’s time for an introduction. (To Bartender) Tell the owner James Bond is here
to see him. The bartender nods and goes off again while Bond and Samantha walk over to the poker table. SAMANTHA Do you think it’s good to talk to strangers like him? BOND You talked to me. Bond continues over to the table while Samantha hangs back and heads off. INT. WAREHOUSE –NIGHT Sergei is looking through files on the computer. He clicks on a folder and enters a password. A folder appears under the name “Risico”. Sergei opens the file and a window pops up with a man on the other side. SHADY FIGURE Is the conversation traceable? SERGEI No. SHADY FIGURE Make sure that the job gets done. I don’t want any loose ends either.
Nobody should find out about Risico. SERGEI (Nods) Yes, Mr. HSHADY FIGURE We don’t speak names, Sergei. The window disappears off the screen. Sergei takes a gun and fires it at the computer console, destroying it. He casually leaves the room. INT. CASINO-MAIN FLOOR –NIGHT Bond sits down from Mr. King. King looks up and smiles while being dealt cards. BOND (To Dealer) Deal me in the next hand. (To King) I saw you were looking at me. Was that a challenge? KING Was it? King throws some chips into the pot, which scares out the
other players. DEALER Mr. King wins. Bond hands the dealer some money. DEALER Changing 2000. BOND (To King) So you’re Mr. King? KING (Counting chips) If it helps you can just call me King. I mean, I wouldn’t want you to strain yourself. Bond’s eyes narrow. The dealer deals and Bond picks up his cars to see the King of Hearts and the Deuce of Spades. He places the cards flatly on the table. DEALER Mr. King. King reaches for chips causing some players to groan and making King smile. He throws the chips into the pot. KING
Raise 500. Many of the other players go out besides two. They call and this leads over to Bond who takes another quick look at his cards. KING Your move. Bond stares at him in silence for a minute. He then proceeds to throw the chips into the pot. BOND I never run from a fair fight. King laughs at this comment and watches the flop. Jack, Ace, Three come up. King stops smiling and looks down at his cards. KING Check. The other two players motion to check leading to Bond. BOND Two hundred. Bond takes the stack of chips and places them in the pot neatly. King looks at the pot then back up at Bond. KING
Your funeral. King throws the same amount of chips in. The other two players fold. This leads to the turn which is a six. DEALER Mr. King, your move. King nods, but only checks. Bond checks as well leading to the river, which is a king. Bond has paired his kings. KING (Reaching for chips) Raise six hundred. People begin to gather around the table and watch. Bond watches King push the chips into the pot and then looks down at his cards. BOND Call. Bond flips his cars and the dealer takes them. DEALER Pair of kings with the ace high. King slowly flips his cards over and hands them to the dealer revealing a queen and a ten. DEALER
Straight, ace high. Mr. King wins the hand. There is applause from others around the table. King smiles at Bond. KING Ready to call the quits, Mr-? BOND James Kent. (beat) I don’t run from fights. I’ll tell you I’ve won bigger hands. Bond smiles at the thought of Le Chiffre. He throws the blind into the pot. The dealer deals the cards and Bond looks down to see an eight and a four. PLAYER Check. The other players check to King. KING Check. The rest of the players check to Bond who motions for a check. The flop turns up two, ace, four. Bond has made a small pair.
PLAYER Raise, all in. The players fold to King who quietly calls. The others fold to Bond. Bond has only a few hundred more than the PLAYER. BOND Call. He throws the chips in and the turn comes up five. Bond glances over to the side to see that Samantha is nowhere in sight. He looks back over at King. KING Let’s make things interesting. (Pause) All in. There are gasps around the table. BOND (Hesitantly) Call. More gasps. The dealer flips over the river which is an eight. Two pair for Bond. DEALER Flip your cards. The player flips his revealing a queen high. Bond flips his
revealing the two pair. BOND (To King) Mr. King? King looks up at Bond. He mucks his cards. KING It seems you beat me, Mr. Kent. Not many people do that. They glare at each other for a moment before the dealer pushes the chips to Bond and collects the cards. VOICE (From Behind) James, haha! Bond turns in his seat to see VALENTIN ZUKOVSKY. He is walking with a cane. BOND (To Dealer) Cash me out. The dealer hands Bond some money, which Bond takes. King watches Bond walk over to Valentin as they start to walk away from the table. BOND
Glad to see you still alive, Valentin. VALENTIN Though you weren’t much of a help back there. I saved your life and you left me for dead. BOND (Quietly) We need to talk in private. Valentin nods. INT. CASINO-VALENTIN’S OFFICE –MOMENTS LATER Valentin has a nice, clean office. He has some cash sitting out on his desk. Valentin and Bond enter the room. Valentin closes the door and locks it. Bond takes a seat in front of Valentin’s desk. BOND You find it safe leaving money like that in the open? VALENTIN Who would dare to steal from me, hmm? (Sitting) So what is it you want to talk
about, James? BOND First things firstBond pulls out his old gun, the Walther PPK, and hands it to Valentin. BOND Now you have all three. Valentin laughs and points the gun at Bond. VALENTIN (Seriously) Is your request that I end your life? Bond stares at him confused for a moment. Valentin stares at him with a straight face before bursting into laughter. VALENTIN You think I’d kill you like that, James? BOND (Nods-smiles) I think you would. Valentin smiles and pours himself a drink. He offers to Bond, but Bond shakes his head.
VALENTIN So what can I help you with, exactly? BOND Do you still remember your old contacts from the KGB? Valentin nods. BOND How about Sergei Lukencov? Valentin takes a sip of his drink and thinks for a moment. VALENTIN He sounds familiar. Valentin stands up and walks over to a filing cabinet. He takes a key out of his pocket and unlocks it. He removes a file and hands it to Bond. VALENTIN In that file you’ll find all information I have on our friend, Lukencov. If you ask me he was a treacherous pig of a man. BOND (Reading)
How so? VALENTIN He left the KGB to go off on some classified mission he said was given to him by a man known as Risico. Though the name seemed to make him cringe I still felt that Sergei knew what he was getting into. (Drinks) Why do you want to know? Bond puts the file back on Valentin’s desk. BOND We believe he is involved with an operation. What exactly he plans to do is unknown though, but we received a threat on the Prime Minister’s life. VALENTIN (Shakes head) Politicians. BOND Do you have any security cameras in restricted sections?
VALENTIN Why? BOND Do you? Valentin smiles. INT. CASINO-PRIVATE SECURITY ROOM –MOMENTS LATER Bond and Valentin are looking at the different cameras, most of which cover the casino floor. VALENTIN You think Sergei is here? BOND If this Risico found out that Sergei had told you about him don’t you think he’d be rather annoyed and would kill you? VALENTIN (Sits) It was years ago though. Who the hell would care? Bond turns to Valentin. BOND When MI6 received a phone call with
a threat on the Prime Minister’s life they said the caller was using an alias by the sound of the name. VALENTIN Risico? BOND Perhaps, but if they are willing to kill the Prime Minister it may be a distraction to take our minds off another target. VALENTIN (Confused) Me? BOND Or someone else that knows about Risico or the operation. Bond turns to look at the screen and points at one. BOND Make the camera bigger. Valentin goes to the control system and clicks on the monitor on the computer. The picture takes over the whole screen. On the screen is Cwoshin.
BOND Son of a bitch. VALENTIN Who is that? Old friend you shot? BOND Worse. Bond runs out of the room. Valentin just watches and pulls out a cigar. INT. CASION-MAIN FLOOR –NIGHT Cwoshin is walking through the casino. He looks over to the table where King is sitting. King motions towards the door in the back of the room. Cwoshin nods and continues walking through the casino. INT. CASINO-BACKROOM –MOMENTS LATER Cwoshin enters the room and looks around. The room is dark and he can’t see. He backs up until he bumps into someone. He turns around to see Sergei. CWOSHIN How’d you get in here without being seen by the cameras? SERGEI I should be asking you the same
question. Cwoshin takes out a gun and points it at Sergei. CWOSHIN The boss was looking through some files and found some important information you gave to someone. SERGEI What? INT. CASINO-MAIN FLOOR –NIGHT Bond exits from behind the bar where Valentin’s office is hidden. He looks around the casino before Valentin comes up behind him. BOND Where did you last see the man? VALENTIN (Points) He was going to the back, but there isn’t anything there. Bond starts to make his way to the back of the floor. INT. CASINO-BACKROOM –NIGHT Cwoshin has pistol whipped Sergei, which knocked him to the
floor. CWOSHIN I’ll enjoy this. Before he can shoot Sergei, Bond crashes through the door and into Cwoshin, which knocks the gun out of his hand. Cwoshin pushes Bond back. CWOSHIN You, I thought you were dead in the explosion? BOND So you do remember me? CWOSHIN Just enough to remember you destroyed me, but it won’t happen again, agent. Cwoshin rushes at Bond and pushes him into the wall and punches him three times. Bond kicks Cwoshin back and touches his lip to see blood. Bond looks over to see Sergei knocked out on the floor. BOND You better hope he’s not dead. CWOSHIN
You better hope he is. They continue to fight for a few minutes until Bond is backed into a corner. Cwoshin knees him in the chest and Bond drops like bricks. Cwoshin quickly runs out of the room. Bond tries to stand himself up as Sergei begins to awaken. Bond goes and picks up Cwoshin’s gun. BOND Sergei. Bond points the gun at him as Sergei leans against the wall. SERGEI You again? INT. CASINO-MAIN FLOOR –NIGHT Cwoshin walks over to King slowly. CWOSHIN (Whisper) Time to go. King nods. In the back, Valentin sees Cwoshin and motions for security. INT. CASINO-BACKROOM –NIGHT
BOND Who is Risico? SERGEI So you finally found out? I’m not going to tell you anything though. Bond fires a round off at the wall and points it back at Sergei. BOND You don’t think that I’ll kill you? That’s a mistake in anyone’s book. SERGEI You won’t. Bond fires a bullet into Sergei’s chest. He gasps for breathe and almost falls over completely. SERGEI Business meeting in Toronto, Canada! Bond looks at him confused. INT. CASINO-MAIN FLOOR –NIGHT The security begins to head over to Cwoshin and King who hurry out of the casino. Some people stop to watch.
INT. CASINO-BACKROOM –NIGHT SERGEI The attempt on the Prime Minister is a ruse! A phony call! Bond still holds the gun, but begins to lower it a little. BOND Who is Risico? SERGEI (Shouts) Go to hell! Bond fires another bullet at the wall. BOND Who is Risico? SERGEI (Shouts) Kill me! Kill me now! INT. CASINO-MAIN FLOOR –NIGHT The security guard takes out a gun and points it at Cwoshin and King. Some people become frightened. SECURITY Put your hands behind your head.
Cwoshin smiles. SECURITY Now! King hands the suitcase he was holding over to Cwoshin. CWOSHIN Oh well. He is about to put his hands behind his head when a hidden trigger is revealed on the suitcase. Cwoshin’s hands drop to his side and the suitcase is revealed to me a hidden machine gun. He fires at the security guards, which frightens a lot of people. INT. CASINO-BACKROOM –NIGHT Bond hears the gunfire and looks back at the door. Sergei moves to grab his own gun, but Bond fires three bullets into him, which kills Sergei instantly. Bond puts the gun away. He takes a final look at Sergei. BOND Thanks. EXT. OUTSIDE CASINO –NIGHT Valentin is standing as he watches Cwoshin’s car speed off into the distance. Bond runs out behind him.
BOND Mess in the backroom. VALENTIN (Annoyed) Thanks a lot. (beat) I took the liberty of having them bring up your car. The valet exits Bond’s car and throws him the keys. BOND (To Valet) Thanks. He goes and gets into his car. He points at Valentin. BOND I’ll be in touch. Bond drives off after Cwoshin and King. VALENTIN (Quietly) Wonderful. BODYGUARD (To Valentin) What?
VALENTIN (Shouts-annoyed) Shut up. He motions for everyone to go back inside. VALENTIN Everyone back in before the police arrive and arrest everyone. EXT. STREETS OF HAMBURG –NIGHT Cwoshin’s care drives through the streets with Bond in pursuit of them. INT. BOND’S CAR –NIGHT Bond takes out a phone and dials a phone number that isn’t clearly shown. INT. MI6-M’S OFFICE-INTERCUT AS NEEDED –NIGHT M is sitting behind the desk. The phone rings and M answers it. M (Pause-into phone) Put him through. M places the phone down and puts it on speaker. M
Bond? BOND I don’t think the attempt on the Prime Minister should be taken seriously. M Any information to back this up? BOND From Sergei before he died. Don’t know if he was lying, but I’m in pursuit of Cwoshin now. M He’s dead? Bond puts the phone down for a moment as he steers the car around a sharp turn. He picks it back up. BOND I’ll call you back. M BondBond has already hung up. M Damn.
EXT. STREETS OF HAMBURG-INTERCUT WITH BOND AND CWOSHIN AS NEEDED –NIGHT Cwoshin’s car avoids hitting another as it jumps up on the sidewalk. Bond does the same to avoid hitting another car as they are now chasing each other against traffic. Bond thinks about shooting at Cwoshin, but puts his gun away, afraid to hit innocent people. Cwoshin is revealed to be in the car with a thug, but not King. He picks up an automatic weapon and hands it to the thug. CWOSHIN Fire at him. The thug nods and begins to fire back at Bond’s car. Bond swerves to avoid maximum damage, but almost hits a car speeding at him. EXT. HIGHWAY –NIGHT The cars speed onto a highway now. Cwoshin swerves into another lane, now going with the traffic. Bond does the same, still hoping to chase him down. The thug begins to fire at Bond once again causing him to swerve. Now on a main road, Bond arms the machine guns on the car.
BOND My turn. The machine guns begin to fire at Cwoshin’s care. Cwoshin and the thug duck down and swerve the car before changing lanes. It then pulls back so that the two cars are neck and neck. Bond looks over and pulls out his gun, but the thug is faster and shoots at Bond first causing him to duck. Bond steers the car and bumps Cwoshin. The thug drops the gun allowing Bond to fire into Cwoshin’s car. The thug is hit by a bullet and screams. Cwoshin changes lanes to be on the left side of Bond’s care instead of the right. He speeds up and pushes the thug out of the car causing him to fly onto Bond’s car. This blinds Bond and he is forced to swerve to get him off the car. The thug holds and opens the passenger side door before entering the car. He tries to strangle Bond, which makes the car start to go out of control. Bond drops his gun in the back. Cwoshin takes this opportunity to get off an exit, which Bond doesn’t notice because of the fight. The thug continues to try to strangle Bond before he hits him in the head and pushes him out the door. The thug flies out into oncoming traffic.
Bond sighs and looks around for Cwoshin’s car, which is now gone. BOND Perfect. Bond’s car continues driving on the road. EXT. HOTEL –NIGHT Bond pulls up to his hotel. He gets out of the car and hands the valet the keys. INT. HOTEL-LOBBY-CONTINUOUS He enters the lobby and looks around before Samantha runs over to him. SAMANTHA Bond! Bond turns and looks at her surprised. BOND What are you doing here, Ms. Rapture? SAMANTHA You and I seem to be after something similar. Bond looks at her for a moment, dumbfounded.
INT. ROOM –MOMENTS LATER Bond puts his gun on the table and sits down. Samantha gets herself a drink out of the mini refrigerator. BOND Why are you after this Risico? Do you work for the government? SAMANTHA Let’s just say it’s for my own personal interest ahead of anyone else’s. Bond nods and leans back. Samantha is about to speak again, but Bond stops her and begins to look around the room. He checks behind a painting or two and the phone. SAMANTHA (Quietly) What’s the problem? Bond silences her again. He walks over to the mirror. He puts his ear to it and stands there a moment. He walks back over to the table and takes his gun. He fires one shot at the mirror, cracking it, and revealing another room where Valentin is hiding. BOND (To Valentin)
You own the hotel too? VALENTIN You could have hit me there, you fool! Bond shakes his head and puts the gun down. VALENTIN After the mess you left me to clean up you should be thanking me. The police asked no questions. (To Samantha) Hello, Ms. Rapture. SAMANTHA How do you(Pause to think) Listening in? Valentin smiles and nods. He looks back over at Bond. VALENTIN Did you get the whack job who shot up my casino? BOND Regrettably not. All I will have gotten out of that chase is an entire speech from Q about being
careful with his cars. VALENTIN You ruined that one too? Bond shoots him a look. Valentin throws his arms up in the air. VALENTIN Now what will you do? BOND Well do you know anything more about Sergei? VALENTIN No. (Pause) Well there was one day where this highly stuck up son of a bitch came into the office to talk to him. BOND What was his name? VALENTIN (Shrugs) It was long agoBOND
Think. Valentin sighs and sits down on the bed. Samantha takes a drink. VALENTIN (Pause-thinking) Something Hilton. Bond’s eyes widen and goes to grab his cell phone. VALENTIN What are you doing now? BOND Reason for coming here was to ask you if you could connect Sergei to Jacob Hilton. Now that you have and we know that they’re both working for this RisicoSAMANTHA What if Hilton is Risico? Bond and Valentin look at her. VALENTIN What do you mean? SAMANTHA Well before you said that Sergei
was going to work for Risico. How do you know that it’s not an alias for Hilton? VALENTIN How do you know we said that? Samantha pulls an earpiece out of her bag. SAMANTHA I was listening. A friend of mine works for you and helped bug your office. BOND I thought you said you don’t work for the government. SAMANTHA I don’t. She stands up and heads for the door. SAMANTHA Will you be leaving tomorrow, James? BOND (Pause) Yes.
SAMANTHA See you in London. Samantha smiles and leaves the room. Valentin sighs and shakes his head. VALENTIN Talk about a player. BOND You’re sure that Sergei is connected to Hilton. VALENTIN So it would appear. Bond puts his cell phone down on the table. VALENTIN (Confused) Don’t you want to contact MI6? BOND I’ll tell them when I get back. Bond goes to sit down next to Valentin on the bed. Valentine stands up and heads for the door. VALENTIN I might as well be leaving.
BOND I’ll need my car to be transported back to London. Think you can handle that? VALENTIN Will you be leaving it at the airport? BOND Yes. Valentin nods and opens the door. VALENTIN Oh and you owe me 300 pounds in your English money. BOND For what? VALENTIN That guy who shot up my casino and security blew up an expensive chandelier. (Laughs) I’ll be in touch. Valentin laughs his way out of the room. Bond sighs and shakes his head.
INT. OIL RIG-CONTROL ROOM –NIGHT Hilton is alone in the room. On the screen there is the same shady figure as before. HILTON King is on his way there. (beat) But we have a problem now. SHADY FIGURE What is it? HILTON Cwoshin just contacted me about an agent. King identified him as James Kent, but we can’t find anyone by that name. The shady figure leans back in the chair, which is visible on the screen. SHADY FIGURE It’s not a problem unless Sergei told them something, which I doubt. HILTON Do you want us to bring the operation up there now?
SHADY FIGURE Yes. Tell them that we fill be heading on schedule, but there has been a small change in plan. HILTON What, sir? SHADY FIGURE We’re going to make sure that the buyers do not realize the full intensity of the situation. Hilton nods and the screen goes black. Hilton smiles. EXT. HOTEL –DAY Bond puts the bag in the trunk of the car and Samantha sees him. She walks over to him. BOND You’re not coming with me. SAMANTHA I already booked a ticket. Besides, I’m supposed to be heading there anyway. BOND If you don’t work for the
government who do you work for? Samantha puts her bags down and holds out her hand. SAMANTHA Samantha Rapture, M’s personal agent assigned by the Queen of England herself. Then again, 007, you can call me 003. BOND (Pause-smiles) That makes you work for government. SAMANTHA I guess it does. Samantha smiles and puts her bags in the trunk and gets in the passenger seat. Bond shakes his head and gets in the car before driving off. INT. PRIME MINISTER’S OFFICE –DAY M enters the Prime Minister’s office. The guard shuts the door behind M. Prime Minister Connors is sitting behind his desk. He stands up and as M sits down so does he. CONNORS Thank you for meeting me, M. M
It’s always a pleasure, Mr. Prime Minister. What can MI6 help you with? CONNORS This attempt on my life that you were talking about. M What about it? CONNORS Should we take this seriously or can it just be laid to rest? M I received a call from agent 007 this morning. He said that the threat was just a distraction to keep us off the trail of Risico. Connors becomes uneasy at the sound of the name. CONNORS Does 007 know what Risico is? M I haven’t told him anything about Risico or past problems with it.
CONNORS All these years and we still haven’t found out who he is or what his real intentions are. M We’re close this time. 007 is close and when he gets close, trust me, things get done. Connors looks at M still uneasy. EXT. AIR FIELD –DAY Bond pulls his car into the airfield and gets out with Samantha. Bond looks around for a moment. BOND Where is our plane? Before we know it they are being shot at from behind. Bond takes Samantha and they duck down behind the car. SAMANTHA Who’s firing at us? Bond shrugs and takes out his gun. Samantha does the same. BOND Leave the car.
He points to a nearby hangar. BOND Get in there. I’ll cover you until then. Samantha nods and Bond goes up to fire at some men hiding behind a nearby plane. Samantha runs toward the hangar, firing back every once in a while. Bond fires again hitting one of the men. The door to the plane opens and Cwoshin looks out and fires at Bond. Bond ducks back down and opens the car door. He jumps in and begins to drive at the plane, scaring some of the men out of the way. He spins the car around and starts to fire with the machine guns. He spots a chopper flying overhead that begins to fire at him. Bond quickly fires a missile at the plane, which blows off the landing gears before driving the car towards the hangar. As the car reaches the hangar, Bond makes a sharp turn as if avoiding a collision with the hangar, opens the door, and jumps out. The car continues momentarily before stopping. Bond runs into theINT. HANGAR-CONTINUOUS He turns the corner and Samantha points her gun in his
face. SAMANTHA Nice tricks. BOND They got a chopper. EXT. AIR FIELD –DAY Cwoshin steps out of the plane. He is given an RPG from one of his men. King steps out of the plane and looks down at him. KING (Looking at landing gears) How the hell do we get out of here now? CWOSHIN (To thug) Get Mr. King a new plane. The thug nods and runs off. Cwoshin positions the RPG on his shoulder and fires. INT. HANGAR –SAME TIME Bond is pacing around trying to catch his breath when the hangar door explodes open from the RPG. He brings Samantha down to the floor as they duck.
BOND This is going to be a little difficult. He looks out a nearby window and sees a plane coming toward the men outside the hangar. BOND Come on. Bond pulls Samantha to her feet. SAMANTHA (Looking) You want to hijack the plane? BOND It’s been done before. Samantha takes a breath. She makes sure that she has ammo in her gun. Bond looks out the window and sees Cwoshin and his men preparing to fire another RPG. BOND This way. They go out a back entrance to the hangar. EXT. AIR FIELD-CONTINUOUS They watch as the plane passes the men and begins to turn
around. Bond holds his watch up causing a glare in the eyes of some of the men. Cwoshin shields his eyes and looks around. CWOSHIN Prepare to fire the RPG. Meanwhile, Bond and Samantha begin to run behind other hangars. They look back to see Cwoshin fire another RPG at the hangar causing it to collapse. The two continue running behind the hangars until they emerge on the side of another. Bond looks around the corner to see the men starting to head toward the hangar. Bond looks over and sees a luggage cart and taps Samantha on the shoulder. INT. HANGAR –SAME TIME Cwoshin and his men enter what is left of the hangar and start to search the rubble. They don’t find anything and King enters the hangar. KING Are they here? Cwoshin shakes his head and looks out into the air field to see Bond on a luggage cart driving after the plane. CWOSHIN
I hate him! EXT. AIR FIELD –SAME TIME Bond looks back at the hangar to see the men chasing after him. They begin to fire bullets at Bond and Samantha. Samantha fires back hitting one in the leg causing others to fall. BOND Good shot. SAMANTHA That’s why I have this rank, 007. Bond sighs and concentrates on catching up to the plane. He puts a bag of luggage on the gas and stands atop the luggage carrier and begins to make his way toward the plane to pull the door down. Cwoshin stops as his men continue to fire and chase after them. He picks up the RPG he dropped. King walks over to him. KING Blow the plane if you have to, but he can’t survive this. He wouldn’t like that. Cwoshin shoots King a look and motions to one of his thugs
to reload the RPG. Samantha continues firing at the men running after them, but is hit in the arm. SAMANTHA They hit me. Bond looks back and the luggage cart hits a bump causing Bond to lose his balance and grab onto the wing of the plane. BOND Drive the bloody cart toward me. It’s starting to go the other way. Samantha watches as the plane begins to pull away. She throws the piece of luggage out of the cart and drives it back towards the plane. Bond pulls himself up on the wing, trying to retain balance and not fly off. He makes his way over to the door and pulls it down. Inside a thug, expecting this, jumps onto Bond and knocks him over to the back of the wing. BIG THUG You’re not getting through this one. The thug punches Bond in the stomach as he tries to get up.
Samantha pulls out her gun, but another bump in the airfield causes her to drop it. The thug picks Bond up and throws him into the side of the plane. Before the thug can punch him again Bond hits first knocking the thug back a couple inches, but hurting his hand. Bond kicks at the thugs legs causing him to collapse. Bond punches the thug in the face and kicks him off towards the back of the wing. The thug grabs on, but is pulled off the plane by force and flies back. BOND (To Samantha) Give me your hand. Samantha jumps toward Bond and he grabs her while the cart stops. He pulls her up and they jump into theINT. AIRPLANE-CONTINUOUS Landing on the side. They shut the door as a PILOT exits the cockpit. Before the pilot can pull out his gun and fire, Bond does and gets the pilot in the heart. The pilot falls and Samantha and Bond open the door to the cockpit. Samantha punches the secondary pilot as Bond takes control. SAMANTHA I’ll throw out the trash.
Samantha takes the secondary pilot out of the cockpit as Bond prepares to lift the plane off the ground. EXT. AIR FIELD –DAY Cwoshin, carrying the RPG, stops at the big thug lying on the ground. He takes out his pistol and shoots the thug in the head. CWOSHIN The price for failure. King looks at the thug’s body and shakes his head. KING (Still looking) Cwoshin, you have to fire at the plane before it’s too late! Cwoshin nods and begins to position the RPG on his shoulder. INT. AIRPLANE –SAME TIME Samantha returns to the cockpit and sits down next to Bond. SAMANTHA You can fly this? BOND Sometimes.
Bond begins to try to bring the plane off the ground. Samantha looks out the window to see the wheels get off the ground and touch back down. This continues until finally the plane gets off the ground and into the air. Samantha smiles and looks at Bond. SAMANTHA I can’t do that. BOND That’s why I have my rank. EXT. AIR FIELD –SAME TIME Cwoshin smiles and fires the last RPG at the plane. The chopper flies back into sight and prepares to crash into the plane. The plane gets too hire into the air and the RPG misses, but hits the chopper, causing it to explode. CWOSHIN Damn! INT. AIRPLANE –SAME TIME Bond looks out the side window to see the rubble of the chopper fall to the ground. He smiles and fixes his tie. EXT. SKIES –DAY A final shot as the plane flies off into the distance.
INT. M’S OFFICE –NIGHT Bond and Samantha enter M’s office to find M standing looking out the window. M turns and nods in acknowledgment. M Take a seat. Bond and Samantha exchange a glance before sitting down. M I don’t care for the mess that you left at the airport in Germany. BOND WellM (Forcefully) I’m no finished, 007. (beat-to Bond) I feel that it was sloppy work done there and that the only brief bit of information we could’ve obtained was silenced by your killing of Sergei. M sighs and leans back. M
But that’s not why I brought you too in here. BOND Why did you? M Jacob Hilton has been spotted at a large theatre here in London for a production. Now we have to take him down and find out as much information as possible regarding this Risico figure we’ve been trying to capture for years. BOND (Confused) Years? M looks to Samantha. SAMANTHA I didn’t tell him. Bond now looks to Samantha as well. M (To Bond) The alias of the caller days ago was Risico. We’ve been after this
mysterious figure for years, but have failed to catch him or his accomplices. Now we may finally get one. Bond and Samantha nod and stand up to leave. M We need him alive. Samantha leaves the room, but Bond turns to M. BOND Why didn’t you tell me about the alias? M My reasons are my own, 007. Bond nods and leaves the room. INT. THEATRE-LOBBY –NIGHT Bond and Samantha enter the lobby of the theatre dressed up nicely. Bond looks at Samantha’s dress and smiles. SAMANTHA (Smiles) I wouldn’t get any ideas. BOND
I wouldn’t dream of it. LEITER (O.S.) James! Bond turns to see Felix Leiter walking towards him. LEITER Haven’t seen you since you left Venice. (Quietly) Find anything new? BOND Yes. I’m sure the CIA has been contacted on the information on Hilton and the rest. LEITER That’s why I’m here. Yesterday we received word from an anonymous source that Hilton would be here. Bond nods and sees Gallagher heading over to them. GALLAGHER (Nods) Mr. Bond. (To Samantha) And you are who?
SAMANTHA Samantha Rapture. Gallagher kisses her hand. LEITER (To Gallagher) See if you can spot Hilton in the audience. Gallagher nods and leaves. BOND He’s still with you? LEITER Regrettably. (Looks over) I should get going. Tell me if you find anything. Leiter runs off after Gallagher. Bond and Samantha continue to walk through the lobby. SAMANTHA Who was that? BOND Felix Leiter. SAMANTHA
I know Leiter, but who was the other man. BOND (Pause) Thomas Gallagher. He was there when 005 was killed. INT. THEATRE-MAIN SHOWROOM –MOMENTS LATER Bond and Samantha find their seats. Samantha sits while Bond turns to walk away. SAMANTHA (Quietly) Where are you going? BOND To look around. Bond walks out of the room. Leiter watches this from a distance. INT. THEATRE-PRIVATE BOX –SAME TIME Hilton is looking at the stage with Cwoshin standing by his side. Hilton’s phone rings and he answers it. HILTON (Into phone) Yes?
Hilton looks down at the floor then back up. HILTON Thanks. (To Cwoshin) We have company. Cwoshin nods and leaves the private box. Hilton searches the floor and sees Bond walking around. He thinks this is suspicious, causing him to stand up and leave. INT. THEATRE-LOBBY –MOMENTS LATER Hilton makes his way down the stairs while talking on his phone. Cwoshin is standing in the lobby. HILTON (To Cwoshin) I’ll meet you outside. Hilton puts the phone away and walks outside. Bond walks over to see Hilton leaving, but is stopped by Cwoshin. BOND Cwoshin. CWOSHIN Yes, but now I know exactly who you are and I’m afraid you can’t see Mr. Hilton. King told me your name
was Kent, but it’s too bad nobody will care once you’re gone. Bond frowns before hearing a clicking sound of a gun. He turns to see Gallagher pointing a gun at his head. BOND You? Gallagher nods. He searches Bond’s jacket and pulls out his gun. He throws it to Cwoshin. CWOSHIN Things like this end in such messes, don’t you think, Kent? BOND I know your real boss is Risico. CWOSHIN So Sergei told you. What else has he told you over the last few days? BOND He’s dead. Cwoshin smiles and walks past Bond. CWOSHIN (To Gallagher) Kill him.
Some thugs enter the building through the lobby doors, hiding weapons. BOND Won’t you at least allow me a final cigarette? Gallagher looks to Cwoshin who nods. Bond pulls out his lighter and a cigarette. GALLAGHER (To Cwoshin) Did you call him Kent? He opens the lighter and flips the secret button, which shoots the fire out around the room. He aims at the thugs setting some aflame before punching Gallagher and grabbing his gun. CWOSHIN Shoot him! The remaining thugs begin to fire at Bond as he runs out of the room. They chase after him along with Gallagher while Cwoshin continues to leave the building. Before exiting Samantha and Leiter stop him. SAMANTHA Turn around slowly.
Cwoshin sighs and does so. CWOSHIN Rapture, I thought I killed you the last time we met. SAMANTHA Guess not. Cwoshin quickly moves and punches Leiter. Leiter drops to the floor unconscious while Cwoshin and Samantha struggle for her gun. INT. THEATRE-STAIRS –SAME TIME Bond is running up the stairs toward the backstage screen. He fires down taking out two thugs. INT. THEATRE-LOBBY –SAME TIME Samantha continues her struggle with Cwoshin. He kicks her in the chest and she collapses. SAMANTHA It’s not nice to hit a woman. She kicks Cwoshin in the shin causing him to yell in agony. He kicks her in the face knocking her out and runs out of the building. INT. THEATRE-BACKSTAGE SCREEN –SAME TIME
Bond is now standing above the screen that is in the background behind the stage serving as a place for the audience in the back to see what’s happening. Bond ducks down reloading the gun with his final clip. He places his silencer on it so it doesn’t scare anybody in the audience. The door opens and Bond dispatches another thug leaving only Gallagher to be dealt with. Gallagher enters and Bond shoots him in the shoulder causing him to drop down. BOND (Kicks him) You’re the reason 005 got killed. You didn’t want backup in Siberia because they told you not to get any. Bond kicks him again in the face. GALLAGHER (Pause) I never meant for him to die. I was only doing this to get money. BOND Greed’s a deadly sin. Bond picks Gallagher up and is ready to push him over the
edge onto the stage below. GALLAGHER Don’t! Bond backs up, but points his gun at Gallagher. BOND You’re a traitor to your control and the world itself. Treason is a terrible thing. Bond pulls the trigger, but the gun does not go off. GALLAGHER Guns can be so faulty. He runs at Bond, but is suddenly shot in the chest. Gallagher backs up, trips over the railing and falls onto the stage below. The audience panics. Bond turns to see Leiter standing there. LEITER Son of a bitch. They look down at Gallagher’s body onstage and the panic they’ve caused. LEITER We’re screwed now.
Bond turns to look at Leiter and puts away his gun. BOND Maybe. LEITER Maybe!? He’s probably gone off and told his boss and Hilton everything our agencies knew on them. The information I told him about Hilton’s operations were vital and now he’s prepared to fight back. Bond nods and leans against the wall. BOND Where’s Sam? INT. THEATRE-LOBBY –MOMENTS LATER Bond and Leiter make their way through the crowd of people. Leiter is still agitated from the revelation of Gallagher being a traitor. LEITER And he had the audacity to play innocent! BOND Try not to make more of a scene,
Felix. Samantha is sitting at a table having a cup of coffee. Bond sits down across from her and Leiter next to her. SAMANTHA (Looking at crowd) What happened? BOND Gallagher slipped. Leiter shakes his head. LEITER How can we even try to get back at Hilton now? Our plans are done for. BOND (To Leiter) Not everything. (To Samantha) I need you to call the airport and get us two tickets to Toronto, Canada. SAMANTHA Why? BOND
Sergei said that there was going to be a business meeting in Toronto and that Risico would be there. If there’s anytime to go undercover and take him down it’s now. Samantha walks away while taking out her cell phone. BOND (To Leiter) Are you coming? LEITER I’ll have to report back first, but I’ll meet you up there in a few days. Bond stands up to walk away, but Leiter grabs his arm. LEITER (Quietly) Try to lay low. You never know who’s working for Risico or Hilton. Bond nods and walks away leaving Leiter by himself at the table. EXT. SKIES ABOVE TORONTO –DAY We see the city of Toronto, Canada in our establishing
shots. SUPERIMPOSED TITLE: Toronto, Canada INT. AIRPORT-BAGGAGE CLAIM –DAY Samantha is waiting for her bag to come around when Bond walks over. Bond is standing in the background on his cell phone. BOND (Into phone) I need to know all business meetings in Toronto, Canada. INT. MI6-SITUATION ROOM-INTERCUT AS NEEDED Tanner and Robinson are on the phone with Bond. ROBINSON I’ll check it out. BOND Thanks. Robinson walks off while Tanner leans closer to the phone. TANNER I’ve got bad news, 007. It seems that a large amount of oil tankers have disappeared out of America’s
backyard in Alaska. BOND Do you think this could tie into Risico? TANNER Maybe, but it may be a false lead such as the attempt on the Prime Minister. Robinson walks back over to the phone with a file. ROBINSON Bond, there’s only one business meeting scheduled in Toronto and that’s at the De Granu Hotel. BOND Who’s the head name? Robinson searches the file. ROBINSON Andrew Heart. TANNER The billionaire? You think he’s behind this? BOND
After Heart earned his money he went into the oil business and has tried buying out his competitors. (beat) Who’s oil tankers were stolen? TANNER (Pause) Andrew Heart’s. BOND Looks like someone is playing cards against Heart. Bond looks over at Samantha who is grabbing some bags. BOND Get me a reservation at the De Granu Hotel. I’ll be in touch. Bond hangs up the phone and walks over to Samantha. BOND Let’s get a the car. EXT. PARKING LOT –DAY Bond and Samantha are walking through the parking lot with bags. Bond sees his car and walks over to it. On the front windshield is a note. Bond picks it up and reads it.
BOND (Reading) I’ll see you in Canada. SAMANTHA Who? Bond hears a gun click. He glances at Samantha who whips out her gun and turns to find Valentin and two of his goons standing behind him. VALENTIN They said you would be here. BOND What the hell, Valentin? Valentin shouts something in Russian and his goon puts his gun away. VALENTIN I knew you wouldn’t keep in touch so I got information on where you were going so I could send the car. I figured I should come and watch the fireworks go off. (Quietly to Bond) I also want to get the damn Japanese guy who cost me loads of
money fixing the casino. Bond smiles and nods. BOND Always to benefit yourself. Valentin points to the car. VALENTIN We’ll follow behind you to wherever you’re going. Bond nods and gets it the car. Samantha slowly puts her gun away and does the same. They drive off. VALENTIN (To Goon) Get me my money back from him. I have an important situation to deal with tonight. The goon nods while Valentin walks away. INT. BOND’S CAR –MOMENTS LATER Bond looks in the side mirror and sees the goon’s car following him. BOND I don’t like this situation.
SAMANTHA You don’t like not being in control. You don’t like having to rely on luck. BOND Not like this. INT. DE GRANU HOTEL-HOTEL ROOM –NIGHT Bond has dressed himself in his tuxedo in the bathroom. He walks into the bedroom to find Samantha putting on her dress. He goes to leave, but stops and watches. SAMANTHA You find that proper, 007? BOND (Smiles) Depends on the personality of the woman involved. Samantha turns and smiles at him. She walks over to him and turns around. SAMANTHA Will you zip me? Bond smiles and nods. She turns around and kisses him. They fall out of the picture.
INT. DE GRANU HOTEL-BALLROOM/PARTY ROOM –NIGHT Bond enters the room with Samantha at his side. BOND (Quietly) Have a look around. Samantha nods and walks off. Bond makes his way through the party over to the bar. BOND (To Bartender) Anything you got. He turns around to see a woman, KAITLYN LAUREL, approaching him. KAITLYN Hello, sir. Are you enjoying yourself? Bond checks her out. BOND Oh yes. KAITLYN And why are you at this party, Mr.BOND
James Bond. Kaitlyn extends her hand. KAITLYN Kaitlyn Laurel, personal assistant to Andrew Heart. Bond smirks at the name. The bartender hands him his drink. BOND Do you think I could meet Mr. Heart, Ms. Laurel? KAITLYN (Pause) Let me see what I can do. Kaitlyn heads off and Bond laughs for a brief moment. He finishes his drink and places it on the table with some money. As he walks off, Valentin approaches him from behind. VALENTIN What are you doing here? BOND I thought you followed me? VALENTIN To the hotel. I mean what are you
doing here at this party. BOND I’mHe sees Kaitlyn approaching. BOND I’ll tell you later. KAITLYN (Walking over) This way, Mr. Bond. Bond nods and walks away from Valentin and follows Kaitlyn over to a table. There are people standing around laughing and in the middle of the crowd is ANDREW HEART, the billionaire. KAITLYN (To Heart) Andrew Heart, this is James Bond. Heart’s smile fades as he stands up and shakes Bond’s hand. HEART I heard that you wanted to talk to me, Mr. Bond. Shall we talk alone? Bond looks over at Samantha who is watching him from afar.
BOND (Still looking) Yes. That would be quite pleasant. INT. DE GRANU HOTEL-PRIVATE ROOM –MOMENTS LATER A guard stands at the only door out of the room. Bond looks back at the guard then at Heart. HEART Take a seat, Mr. Bond, please. Bond sits back down and continues to glance back every once in a while. HEART (Looking at paper) Do you feel insecure? BOND I don’t take things lightly. I like being more careful. HEART Looking over your shoulder everyday is no way to live. BOND A friend of mine in the CIA has found information that you may wish
to hear. HEART Do tell. BOND He couldn’t make it up here so he sent me. He says that there may be someone here at this business meeting that may want you out of the way. Heart frowns and leans back in his chair. BOND Your trucks going missing seems to be the first sign of this. Someone is trying to sabotage you. HEART You think so? BOND This situation could threaten your life. HEART (Pause) Why would your friend trust you with telling me this information?
BOND I’m in the market for a job. HEART And what do you do exactly? Bond looks back toward the guard for a moment. BOND Let’s just say I get things done that some may find(Short pause) -difficult. Heart smiles at Bond. HEART Sounds like an interesting field. As Bond nods the door opens and Kaitlyn enters the room. KAITLYN You have a, uh, call for you. HEART (To Bond) Excuse me. Bond glances at him then back at Kaitlyn and the guard. Heart leaves the room with Kaitlyn.
INT. DE GRANU HOTEL-BALLROM/PARTY ROOM-CONTINUOUS Heart continues walking over until he reaches another door, which he enters alone. INT. DE GRANU HOTEL-BACKROOM-CONTINUOUS A man is standing with his back to Heart. HEART What is it? The man turns revealing Hilton. HILTON Who are you talking to in there, Heart? Heart glares at him. HEART Watch it, Jacob. Do you forget who’s in charge? The moment of truth when our audience finds that Heart is really the mastermind of the operation. The moment where Risico, the shady figure, is revealed. HEART I’m just talking to somebody I wish to hire to help us out.
HILTON You have to be careful though. We still don’t know what Kent looks like because King can’t remember the night. Heart nods and starts to pace around the room, agitated. HEART Well that’s not the task at hand. We have to get through this meeting. I’m going to hire him and if he causes trouble an accident will occur. Hilton smiles and nods. Heart sighs and leaves the room. INT. DE GRANU HOTEL-BALLROOM/PARTY ROOM –SECONDS LATER Samantha watches from the bar as Heart continues back into the private room. Valentin has sat down next to her. SAMANTHA Why are you here? VALENTIN I’m here for Heart’s meeting. He wanted to discuss something with the big business and political magnets in the world.
SAMANTHA You? VALENTIN I helped rig an election in Ukraine. Got someone elected President. Samantha sighs and has a drink. INT. DE GRANU HOTEL-PRIVATE ROOM –MOMENTS LATER Heart is sitting back down behind his desk. There is a little suspicion in his gaze. HEART Any previous work experience, Bond? Interesting work experience, that is. BOND I was recently discharged from MI6. HEART Fired? How long ago. BOND I resigned a couple of months ago, Mr. Heart. Heart nods and leans back in his chair, thinking. He looks
over at the guard. HEART (To Guard) Leave us. The guard nods and exits the room. Bond seems to be a little nervous now. HEART I’d like to hire you, Mr. Bond. As you can tell though I have a meeting I must be getting to. I’ll have one of my bodyguards pick you up outside the hotel tomorrow to bring you to my oil plant. BOND Ah, yes, your infamous oil business you have now. HEART Oil is the thing in the world. Gold used to be the prized possession, but as interest changes so does the color of the…gold. Bond smiles and nods, but the smile quickly fades away. Heart stands and walks over to the door.
HEART (Opening door) I’ll see you tomorrow. Bond stands and shakes Heart’s hand before leaving the room. Heart shuts the door and glances around. INT. DE GRANU HOTEL-BALLROOM/PARTY ROOM –MOMENTS LATER Bond glances over at Kaitlyn who waves. Bond smiles and walks over to Samantha. BOND Where’s Valentin? SAMANTHA At Heart’s meeting. (beat) What did he say? BOND I just got a new job. Bond walks over to the bar. INT. DE GRANU HOTEL-BOARDROOM –MOMENTS LATER Big oil and political heads are seated around the room with Valentin among them. Even in the back of the room Mr. King is seated. Bob is standing at the front of the room by the doors when Heart enters the room.
HEART Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. PEOPLE Good evening. Heart takes a seat at the head of the table. HEART I’m sure that you are all wondering why I would summon you to a secretive meeting in Canada. There are murmurs around the room agreeing and others disagreeing. HEART Nonetheless, I do believe you all have a right to know. Heart motions for Bob to pull down a screen on the back wall. He does so and everybody turns to watch. HEART Information you hear in here will be kept secret. If I ever found out if anyone of you told anybody I would have to have you killed. There is some awkward laughs, but they die down as some get
nervous. Valentin glances back at Heart. VALENTIN Why are we here? HEART Just watch the screen. Valentin turns to see the screen. The picture that appears on it is a tracing of oil pipelines around the world. HEART As you can see the pipelines shown on the map are of mine and my competitors, some of which are here. It is clear the world’s surplus of oil will die out if we keep using so much of it. Bob pushes a button and the image changes to a picture of missiles. OIL MAGNET Missiles? HEART Correct, Vernon. These missiles are at my plant here in Toronto. They are here for the specific reason of protection and what soon will
become bargaining with the rest of the world. The image changes once again, but now it is of scrambling devices. HEART Devices like this will be able to distract my targets as I mobilize for a decisive power play. Bob pulls the screen back up and lights go on in the room. Heart stands and begins to circle around. HEART I’m offering you the chance to help me with a plan of taking over the world’s oil and guarding it with might. The rest of the plan you people would not have to worry about as I would take care of it. OIL MAGNET (VERNON) I know how we fit into your plan, but how do we know we’ll be compensated? HEART Leave that to me, Vernon.
VALENTIN (Pointing to political heads) How do we fit into this? HEART (Smiles) You would have to get people involved in our operation into office or convince those in office to sell me their oil. POLITICAL HEAD I want to know the part of the plan you’ll be dealing with! HEART (Sighs-short pause) I don’t like repeating myself. KING I’m in with this plan, Heart. Heart stops walking around the room and stands behind his seat. HEART Is there anybody else? There are many hands that are raised. Valentin looks around the room, but does not raise his hand.
HEART I don’t expect those who do not wish to join to tell anyone or action will be taken. (beat) Please leave. Valentin and others leave the room. Vernon, King, and many others remain. HEART (Quietly to Bob) Get rid of them quietly. Bob nods and leaves the room. Hilton enters from a side door and stands where the screen was. HEART As for the rest of you I’ll tell you my part in the plan. POLITICAL HEAD Good. HEART The business empire I’ve built up has not just been on legal transactions. My part of the plan is simply that some of the drug
smuggling operations I’ve held in Italy will be used to continue funding my computers division. The division is building super computers just for this plan so we can tap into missiles around the world. Vernon’s eyes widen. VERNON You’re mad! HEART (Laughs) You must be too if you’re going to collaborate with me. VERNON I will not. HEART Pity. Hearts nods to Hilton who takes out a gun and shoots Vernon in the neck and then the head. He falls onto the floor. HEART The computers should be completed in a few days. I’m not crazy, but I
will become the richest man in the world and you the richest men and women below me. We’ll also be the most powerful military force. In general we will be pretty much rulers of the world in a matter of speaking. (Pause) Why destroy the world when you can own it? INT. DE GRANU HOTEL-BALLROOM/PARTY ROOM –MOMENTS LATER Valentin walks over to Bond who is alone now. VALENTINE Where’s the girl? BOND Upstairs. (beat) What did Heart say in there? VALENTIN Talking about a business deal with trying to pool the oil in the world into his domain with others helping.
Bob, who is watching from afar, points to some of his thugs. BOB I want you to kill Mr. Zukovsky when he leaves Bond. The thugs nod and set off. Bob sees one of the oil magnets that left the meeting early go into a bathroom. INT. DE GRANU HOTEL-BATHROOM –MOMENTS LATER The oil magnet is checking his hair out in the mirror. Bob enters the bathroom and looks at him. OIL MAGNET What do you want? Bob walks over to him and shrugs. BOB Just checking things out. He quickly grabs the oil magnet and begins to strangle him. The oil magnet tries to fight back, but slowly dies. Bob throws him into one of the stalls. INT. DE GRANU HOTEL-LOBBY –MOMENTS LATER Bond and Valentin are walking over to the elevator. BOND
I think this is the perfect opportunity for his enemy to destroy him. VALENTIN Hilton’s boss Risico? BOND Exactly. They enter the elevator and the doors close. The thugs watch and head for the stairs. INT. DE GRANU HOTEL-HALLWAY –MOMENTS LATER Bond and Valentin exit the elevator and start to walk down the hall. VALENTIN This Heart strikes me as strange though. BOND Why? VALENTIN That man that was with, uh, Cwoshin that night was there too. Bond stops and looks at Valentin.
BOND King? VALENTIN Yeah. You think he’s Risico? BOND Maybe. Did he leave when you left the room? VALENTIN No, but he did seem to be enjoying the plan. Almost as if… BOND He knew it. Valentin nods and Bond glances around. BOND Then he’s got to be our man. Unless he already knew Heart. VALENTIN That wouldn’t make sense. The thugs slowly creep out of the staircase and look down the hallway at Bond and Valentin. VALENTIN If Heart knew King was trying to
set him up why would he invite him in the first place? Why not just have him killed? BOND There was something strange about Heart when he left for a phone call in the middle of my meeting with him. Bond spots the thugs, but is too late to act as Valentin is shot in the back. He falls toward Bond who pulls out his gun and fires back. BOND (To Valentin) I got you. Bond knocks on his hotel room door and Samantha answers. He fires down the hall again and pushes Valentin into the room. Bond fires and catches one of the three thugs. BOND (To Samantha) Help him! Bond shuts the door and runs down the hall towards the men firing at them. He buys himself enough time to jump at one of the thugs knocking him to the floor. He punches him and
then punches the other thug. The thug on the floor kicks him and goes to grab his gun only to be kicked in the face by Bond. The thug falls down and tries to get back up. The other stands and tries to kick Bond, but misses as Bond stands as well. Bond punches him in the stomach and throws him out a nearby window. The thug on the floor again goes for the gun, but Bond steps on his hand. Bond kneels down and picks up his own gun. BOND I’ll take that. He points the gun at the thug and shoots him in the head once. He quickly runs toward his room and enters. INT. DE GRANU HOTEL-ROOM-CONTINUOUS Bond shuts the door and drops the gun on the floor. He runs over to Valentin and Samantha. SAMANTHA He’s losing blood. BOND Try to stop the bleeding. (To Valentin) You’ll get through this. You’ve
done it before. VALENTIN (Sweating) Damn fools! It was Heart! It had to have been. Bond stands there realizing that Heart could be the one behind it. VALENTIN He was the only one that could have given such an order for this purpose! Bond backs away from Valentin, but then regains control. BOND I’ll get him back for this, Valentine, but I need you to go back to Hamburg. Back to your casino in Hamburg. SAMANTHA The towels not helping. BOND (Shouts) Then get something else, damn it!
Samantha runs out of the room. Bond moves closer to Valentine. VALENTIN If I don’t make it, if I don’t make it I want you to make sure that SOB gets it. BOND I’ll have to know it’s him for sure, but I will. (Quietly) You’ll make it. Valentin starts to breath heavily. Samantha returns with some bandages. She places one on his back. There is a knock at the door and Bond picks his gun back up. He looks through the peephole and opens the door, letting Valentin’s guards in. BODY GUARD What happened? BOND They shot him. The guards move over to see him. VALENTIN Where the hell have you two been! I
get shot and you’re not there. You’re both(Pause) Fired. The guards exchange glances and back away. Bond searches through a drawer and pulls out some money. He walks back over to Valentin. BOND (Handing him money) This is for you as compensation and thanks. Valentin smiles and begins to have a hard time breathing. VALENTIN I didn’t think it’d be easier getting it back from you. Bond smiles as well, but becomes concerned when Valentin spits up a little blood. VALENTIN Wonderful. Samantha wipes the blood away. The guards come closer to Bond. BODY GUARD
We’ll take care of him. Bond looks at Valentin who nods. Bond steps back and the two body guards carry Valentin out of the room. Bond shuts the door behind them. SAMANTHA You really think Heart is behind this? BOND (Watching door) I don’t know anymore. Things just are completely out of place. Bond takes off his tuxedo jacket. BOND I’ve got a busy day tomorrow. EXT. OUTSIDE DE GRANU HOTEL –DAY Bond exits the hotel to see a car waiting for him. The driver opens the door. Bond turns to look up at his room window to see Samantha. Bond nods and gets in the car. The driver shuts the car and enters the car on the driver’s side. EXT. PLANT FIELDS –DAY The car stops and Bond steps out. The car drives away while
Bond walks over to a crowd of people standing around. He sees Heart start to walk over to them. HEART (To Bond) Glad you could make it, Mr. Bond. Heart pats him on the back. HEART Let’s start this tour, shall we? He and Bond walk to the head of the crowd, which is the group of people from Heart’s meeting.
