Chill Factor script
Chill Factor (1999)
Synopsis: A decade after chemical weapon "Elvis" kills 18 soldiers during a test, military scapegoat Andrew (Peter Firth) gets out of jail and tracks down scientist Richard (David Paymer) in Montana -- who shoots him. Andrew manages to tell his friend Tim (Skeet Ulrich) to get Elvis to safety at a fort 90 miles away. However, if exposed to a temperature higher than 50 degrees, the weapon will go off, so Andrew forces ice-cream-truck driver Arlo (Cuba Gooding Jr.) to help him transport the device.
