Can you tell him it’s urgent and

Yes.

Locke - Shooting Script - Feb 21st 2013 4.

We hear children in the background and a TV. Ivan reacts to

the family sounds because the world of children and family is

about to explode and he will be cut adrift from it forever.

GARETH’S WIFE (OOV)

What was your name again?

IVAN:

Ivan Locke.

GARETH’S WIFE (OOV)

Something about concrete.

IVAN:

Yes.

GARETH’S WIFE (OOV)

Will he know what?

IVAN:

No. Something has come up. I need

to tell people...

Ivan almost chokes on some unexpected emotion. It is a shock

to us and to him, like undigested food hitting his gullet...

IVAN (CONT’D)

It’s urgent.

A dog barks.

GARETH’S WIFE (OOV)

IVAN LOCKE:

I said it’s very urgent. Thanks.

He cuts the call and drives. The emotion that just struck

him was a bad development so early. He has a lot to do in

the next hour and a half and he must hold this together at

all costs. He drives for a while to calm himself. Then,

when he is sure he is ready, he makes another call...

We hear a mobile phone answer message. The voice is BETHAN,

early thirties...

BETHAN’S ANSWER MESSAGE (OOV)

Hi, this is Bethan. I can’t get to

the phone right now, please leave a

message.

Ivan misses the cue of the beep by a second because he’s

getting his voice straight. Finally...

IVAN LOCKE:

It’s Ivan. I got your messages.

I’m on my way and I’ll get there.

I’m in the car now.
