Gold script
Gold (2016)
Synopsis: Gold is a 2016 American crime adventure film directed by Stephen Gaghan and written by Gaghan, Patrick Massett and John Zinman. The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Édgar Ramírez, Bryce Dallas Howard, Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbell, Craig T. Nelson, Stacy Keach and Bruce Greenwood. The film is loosely based on the true story of the 1993 Bre-X mining scandal, when a massive gold deposit was supposedly discovered in the jungles of Indonesia, however for legal reasons and to enhance the appeal of the film, character names and story details were changed.

WELLS:

Bobby Burns!

BURNS:

Oh yeah, that’s the stuff...

WELLS:

You boys hear about this cowboy’s

tombstone that won the contest for

Best Tombstone? The 5 Rules To Follow

For A Happy Life...

Smiles from the guys at the surrounding tables. They all lean

in to listen. Wells clearly loves the attention.

WELLS (CONT’D)

One:
it’s important to have a woman

who helps at home, cooks from time to

time, cleans up and has a job. Two:

it’s important to have a woman who can

make you laugh. Three: it’s important

to have a woman you can trust, and

doesn’t lie to you. Four: it’s

important to have a woman who is good

in bed, and likes to be with you.

4.

WELLS (CONT’D)

(beat)

Five:
it’s very important that these

four women do not know each other or

you could end up dead like me.

Everyone laughs. Wells beams, punctuating the punch-line with

a slap on Burns’s back. Burns calls out to the barmaid --

BURNS:

Whaddayou think, Kay?

KAY is short for KAYLENE, an ex-Jr. Miss Reno, and second

runner-up Jr. Miss Nevada. She loves Joe Montana, horses, and

Kenny, though in reverse order. Kay’s jeans are a half-size

too small, not because she’s trying to be sexy but because

she’s happy.

KAY:

I’ll kill him right now.

More laughter. Wells loudest of all.

WELLS:

(to Burns)

So, whatcha working? Anything I should

know about?

BURNS:

Telmerek. Their Aukland stake, the

bank called the note. I picked up a

bunch of the debt, I gotta flip it

before the call.

WELLS:

Any bites?

BURNS:

Nibbles.

WELLS:

Keep throwing that line.

A pat on the arm and he’s off to the bar where his double

Seagrams is already being poured by ROY BAKER (60’s), sweet

face that’s seen some miles -- like a broken down boxer.
