Entrapment script
Entrapment (1999)
Synopsis: Insurance investigator Virginia "Gin" Baker (Catherine Zeta-Jones), looking into a stolen Rembrandt painting, suspects that accomplished thief Robert "Mac" MacDougal (Sean Connery) is responsible. She decides to go undercover and help Mac steal an ancient artifact. When a suspicious Mac confronts Gin about her real intentions, she claims that she is, in fact, a thief and that the insurance job is a cover. To prove it, she proposes a new target that could net them $8 billion.

The Thief pops the labeled tube down the chute.

EXT. BUILDING WINDOW - NIGHT

The Thief disappears out the open window. The window closes,

becoming...

EXT. BUILDING WINDOW - NIGHT

Another window, in which we see reflected the lens of a

telescope and, in that lens, the image of the office where

the thief has just been. A silhouetted FIGURE is looking

through the telescope.

Through the scope's lens. Close detail of the Office where

the thief had been. We see light fall into the room as the

Figure exits a door and softly closes it. The Image lightens

and DISSOLVES INTO:

INT. PETROTEX HEADQUARTERS - VIDEO - DAY

The Board Suite on VIDEO, daytime, with COPS and

INVESTIGATORS combing the crime scene. The Security Guard

being interviewed, lots of activity.

FIRST TECHNICIAN (O.S.)

Look at those assholes.

INT. WEBBER INSURANCE - MAIN OFFICE - DAY

The video plays live on a large monitor in a big bullpen of a

room, all Herman Miller partitions and work stations butted

together, row upon row of them. This is where the world's

biggest insurance companies track down major theft losses.

FOUR TECHNICIANS work at computer monitors, calling up

security plans, art data, details on possible suspects.

HECTOR CRUZ enters, crisp, professional, an ex-FBI man who

thinks he's smarter than anybody else, and is almost right.

Cruz glances at the cops working in the Board Suite, knows

they'll never figure this out.
