Appaloosa script
Appaloosa (2008)
Synopsis: Virgil Cole (Ed Harris) and his longtime friend and partner Everett Hitch (Viggo Mortensen) travel the 1880s Southwest, bringing justice to lawless towns desperate enough to hire them. In the mining town of Appaloosa, malevolent rancher Randall Bragg and his cronies ride roughshod over the frightened citizens. As Cole and Hitch work to end Bragg's reign of terror, an unconventional widow (Renee Zellweger) arrives, complicating the job and threatening their bond.

Clayton hits Bronc so hard he’s staggered backward.

Chalk drives his hunting knife up into Clayton’s heart.

Vera begins to scream as Clayton falls but Bronc clamps his

strong hand over her mouth and drags her into the blackness

of the alley. Chalk follows...

BLACK OUT:

6 EXT. CIRCLE R~B RANCH - DAY 6

MARSHAL JACK BELL, 60ish, heroic looking, on a large black

horse, and TWO DEPUTIES ride under arched timbers.

An iron CIRCLE R~B swings from the cross beam.

From the ranch house some distance away, RANDALL BRAGG, 50’s,

an imposing charismatic presence, steps off the porch. He

cradles a WINCHESTER .73.

From the corral, bunkhouse and barn, BRAGG’S MEN... join him.

Bell and his Deputies ride to a halt.

They meet in an open area of trampled dirt between the ranch

house and the barn.

MARSHAL BELL:

Randall, I’m afraid I’m going to

have to bring two of your boys back

into town with me.

Most of Bragg’s dozen or so hands hang back behind him -

including Chalk and Bronc.

BRAGG:

You’re out of your jurisdiction,

Marshal, beyond city limits. And

you’re trespassing on my land.

MARSHAL BELL:

They murdered that Chicago fella

and raped and killed his wife. I’m

taking them in.

BRAGG:

No.

Bell studies the FACES of Bragg’s men.

One of them is a YOUNG MAN, barely 18.

Bell’s eyes rest on Chalk and Bronc (who sports a black eye).
