I, Robot script
I, Robot (2004)
Synopsis: In 2035, highly intelligent robots fill public service positions throughout the world, operating under three rules to keep humans safe. Despite his dark history with robotics, Detective Del Spooner (Will Smith) investigates the alleged suicide of U.S. Robotics founder Alfred Lanning (James Cromwell) and believes that a human-like robot (Alan Tudyk) murdered him. With the help of a robot expert (Bridget Moynahan), Spooner discovers a conspiracy that may enslave the human race.

CUT TO:

8 EXT./INT. MONORAIL - MORNING 8

Spooner stepping onto a sleek, densely packed TRAIN. Looks

down at his feet. A trampled flyer on the ground. From the

Anti-Robot League: METAL MONSTERS SECRET FACTORY REVEALED!

A Robot gets up. To offer him his seat. Spooner. Turns his

back on him as we PULL BACK from the window to REVEAL...

9 EXT. CITY SCAPE/MONORAIL - CONTINUOUS 9

The TRAIN hurtling toward DOWNTOWN. Soaring, gravity-defying

OFFICE BUILDINGS dominate the skyline. Older buildings

wedged among the new. All protected by huge glass and steel

shields.

As we get closer congested roads and freeways begin to

disappear below ground into a series of subterranean tunnels.

The .old. streets have become huge, spacious plazas.

10 EXT. POLICE H.Q. - PLAZA - MORNING 10

Spooner moves with the CROWD towards the doors of the aging

Police Headquarters. Modern additions have been made to the

original facade -- creating an ungainly architectural mess.

11 INT. POLICE H.Q. - HOMICIDE UNIT - MORNING 11

A vast open plan situation room lined on one side by a series

of glass-enclosed rooms. On the other side a GIANT SCREEN

with real time video of various streets and buildings.

Spooner arrives at his desk. Unlike the others, it.s a mess.

A slender computer screen curving along the front of it.

Several electronic messages say the same thing:

SEE ME!

LT. BERGIN (O.S.)

Ever heard the phrase .lead by

example?.

Spooner looks up. LIEUTENANT JOHN BERGIN stands in front of

his desk, holding up a CITATION with a photo of Spooner

giving that traffic signal the finger.

SPOONER:

Doesn.t ring a bell.

LT. BERGIN

(pointing to Spooner.s

badge)

It.s on your badge.
