Get Carter script
Get Carter (2000)
Synopsis: Jack Carter (Michael Caine) is a cold-blooded London gangster, and not the sort of man you want to cross. When Carter's brother winds up dead, he travels to Newcastle to arrange the funeral. Convinced that his brother was murdered, Carter questions local thug Eric (Ian Hendry), who eventually leads him to kingpin Kinnear. From there, Carter carves a bloody trail of revenge through the seedy underbelly of Newcastle in search of his brother's killer.

DEXTER:

I’m telling you! Homeboy doesn’t

care. Four Super Bowls, he picks

Buffalo.

The subway comes to a halt at Canal Street.

DEXTER:

You remember him from that one

scam.

JACK:

Refresh my memory.

DEXTER:

He called the 800 number, used his

code, K-25, put five grand on the

49ers, lost, and claimed that it

wasn’t his voice on the recorder.

JACK:

Meaning someone stole his code.

Dexter nods as the subway takes off again.

DEXTER:

You strapped, Jack?

Dexter opens his jacket and shows Jack his gun. Jack

stares at him, knowing the kid will be dead in a year.

DEXTER:

He’s got the serious heater, man.

Nickel-plated .45 in his

briefcase. Motherfuckin’ punk,

this guy.

Jack palms Dexter’s forehead and cracks the back of his

head against the subway map. Dexter grabs his head.

DEXTER:

Goddamn, man!

JACK:

I told you to watch your language.

I don’t want to hear it.

DEXTER:

I’m sorry, man. Jesus. I just

know he’s scared, okay? Goddamn.

(CONTINUED)

5.

CONTINUED:

Jack moves to the doors as the subway slows to a stop.

JACK:

You’re going to be flooded with

action on Sweet Di. Take as much

as you can.

DEXTER:

You got it, man. Jesus.

SMASH CUT TO:

INT. SUBWAY

The doors slam open. Wall Street exit. A familiar face

exits and pauses to spark up a cigarette.

PULL BACK to reveal the 4x6 photo of DAVIS WHEELER. A

perfect match. Davis heads up the stairs.

An awaiting Jack surreptitiously follows him.

EXT. WALL STREET -JACK’S POV

Davis heads down the street and enters a small diner just

off Maiden and Broadway.

INT. DINER

Clock reads eight A.M. Organized chaos. Waiters with

deep NY accents yelling egg orders at the cook without

writing anything down. Financial analysts trying to pay

for their coffee.
