SCRIPT BYTES FROM "THE BIRTHRIGHT"
INT. ABANDONED FIRE DAMAGED WAREHOUSE - DAY
FBI AGENT WADE (40’s) is walking through burned debris of charred wood and a massive amount of melted computer equipment, wires, cracked monitors, keyboards, etc.
Agent Wade sees a HAND and bends down for a closer look as a large steel beam lies across the debris covering the body and checks the hand’s pulse, astonished... HE’S ALIVE!
INT. HOSPITAL EMERGENCY WAITING ROOM - DAY
Agent Wade is looking at a burned jacket lining with A PARTIALLY BURNT NAME LABEL WITH “JOSEPH”.
TWO CIA AGENTS walk in, and hold up their CIA I.D. BADGES to Agent Wade.
A SURGEON with BLOODY GLOVES suddenly walks in, shakes his head sadly “NO” to Agent Wade - Joseph didn’t make it...
The CIA Agents give a sigh of relief as the Surgeon exits.
Agent Wade upset with this news, takes note of their candor-
CIA AGENT #1
Well, that makes our work done here-
The Two CIA Agents smirk at each other and exit the room. Just then, the Surgeon bursts back in the room and stares at Agent Wade startled-
Agent Wade, he’s not dead! He’s
in a coma. But... but he’s alive!
Agent Wade looks around. No one else is in the room-
No, he’s dead, and only me and you
know about this, got that Doc??
Surgeon frightened by Wade’s threat and nods his head YES.
This man is a terrorist suspect or
a witness,so either way, til he
wakes up and I get some answers,
the deader he is, the safer he is.
EXT. NATIONAL PARK, LANGLEY, VA. - DAY
Virginia mountains. A cold afternoon.
TWO BLACK TOWN CARS sit side by side, facing a view of a lake. TWO MEN in dark suits and long coats stand near the cars, casually on the lookout.
A glimpse underneath the coat of one of the men, we see he’s carrying a 9mm Glock gun.
INT. BLACK TOWN CAR - CONTINUOUS
In the backseat of the car sit STEED and COLLINS, each well kept and in his middle 40’s. STEED
“Thou shalt not bear false witness
against thy neighbor”.
What on earth does that mean?
“Thou shalt not covet”.
I’m here for a Bible study class?
“Thou shalt not kill”.
You’re killing me right now. What
the heck do you want?
Steed looking out the his window in a sedative state.
Who’s side are you on?
Is that what this is about? You
think this is about sides?
Everyone needs to slow down and
think clearly here. No one, including
you, wants to be fingered as the one
obstructing efforts to increase greater
yield of food crops, which will lower
food costs and help feed the poor.
Screw you Steed.
Is that anyway to talk to one of your
You’re gonna finger me as hard on
the poor and soft on the rich?
Food costs are rising, people are
starving, nations are dying. What
are we gonna do? Play golf?
We’re not gonna hand you the keys
to the kingdom. I’m not gonna sit
in Congress and pass a law that
protects you and makes you richer,
and the poor poorer! I can tell you
right here and now, it’s not happening. Not on my watch. (beat)
And next time you want to meet,
do me a favor, meet at the office
and not on my day off, OK?
Now get outta my car... I’ve got a
meeting on the “T” I'd like to keep.
STEED regards COLLINS a moment, then opens the car door--
EXT. PARKWAY - DAY
COLLINS’ car snakes down the twisting mountain road.
INT. COLLINS’ CAR (MOVING) - CONTINUOUS
COLLINS in back seat, his phone rings, he answers.
You chose wrong... goodbye Senator.
Suddenly his car is rear ended by another car.
COLLINS turns around and sees a BLACK SEDAN pushing his car as it comes around a sharp bend, out of control, it goes off shoulder--
EXT. PARKWAY - CONTINUOUS
COLLINS’ car flies off the side of the road over a thousand foot mountain side drop, crashes and explodes on impact.
INT. CIA GYM & WEIGHT ROOM, Langley
CIA CYBERSPACE CHIEF, AGENT SAMANTHA JAVAN, aka SAM (35), attractive, tall and tough, with a thin scar on her face is displaying her martial arts skills on a punching bag.
SEVERAL AGENTS stand by watching Sam and nodding their heads in approval of her amazing martial arts skills.
FBI Agent Ted Cannon enters. Sam and Ted's eyes connect for a moment but she ignores him and continues. The other agents standing by see Cannon approach and slowly exit-
You hear about the hospital, Sam?
I hear about everything here, Ted.
(unleashes another kick)
Why, you asking for help?
(a punch and a kick)
Where were you when the rain came?
Sam does a double somersault turn around kick that would even impress Bruce Lee.
Her foot stops one inch from Ted’s face.
What’d you expect?? An umbrella and
a chorus of “Singin’ in the Rain”?
Keep the gloves up Ted.
She kicks the bag so hard it breaks off and flies into the wall.
We’re in different rings now.
New ring -- same fight.
You still owe me, or did you catch
amnesia as well?
(rubs scar on her face)
I get to look in the mirror each
morning as a reminder.
Enough! You have a rogue ex-CIA Black
OPS agent dead at my crime scene named
Jack Harper... he tried to take out my
only key suspect witness. And now he’s
gone! Just vanished!
Oh, and I thought you were here because
you missed me. Jack left the agency long
before my time. And the tatted Syrian
Besides a broken arm and collarbone
with a fractured jaw... he’s not talking.
(long stare down)
But neither are you guys.
Sam ignores the comment, grabs a small towel for her neck-
Look Sam, I need Jack’s file with no
red tape... and I’ll sign your papers...
with no red tape. Fair enough???
Same ole Ted... nothing’s changed.
You must really be on the hot seat.
So who stopped the Syrian?
My money is on the doctor. Dr. Su Yung
arrived the same time Joseph did, so
I’m not ruling anything out-
Let’s see... a missing suspect with
amnesia and no ID, one dead ex-Black
OPS CIA agent, a Syrian soldier and
a sketchy doctor??..
Sounds like a conspiracy to me.
Sounds like more rain to me.
You might still need that umbrella.
Sam gives Cannon the dagger eyed stare down. He then exits.
Sam opens her purse, pulls out a photo of her and Cannon in FBI jackets posing together -- closer than regular partners.
