Gangs of New York script
Synopsis: Amsterdam Vallon (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a young Irish immigrant released from prison. He returns to the Five Points seeking revenge against his father's killer, William Cutting (Daniel Day-Lewis), a powerful anti-immigrant gang leader. He knows that revenge can only be attained by infiltrating Cutting's inner circle. Amsterdam's journey becomes a fight for personal survival and to find a place for the Irish people in 1860's New York.

SHANG:

What's the fight?

AMSTERDAM:

The Dead Rabbits against the Native Americans, same as ever. But it'll all

be settled today.

SHANG:

Are you Native or Rabbit?

AMSTERDAM:

(points to rabbit on pike)

What do you think?

SHANG:

Looks alright. I'll stand by you, then.

CUT TO:

6 INT. HALLWAY

The group now turns down the last corridor, as dim and long as a tunnel.

In the distance, there's a faint glimmer of light and the figure of a MAN

(MONK EASTMAN). VALLON stops near the door.
