Sphere script
Sphere (1998)
Synopsis: When psychologist Norman Goodman (Dustin Hoffman) wrote a report for the government on how to deal with extraterrestrial life forces, he didn't expect his recommendations to be used. Now that a secret government agency is investigating what may be an alien spaceship that has been discovered partially buried on the floor of the Pacific Ocean, Norman finds that the plan he outlined is being put into effect and that the team he named in his report has been assembled.

NORMAN:

Who's everyone?

PILOT:

Physicists, mathematicians,

geologists, you name it.

NORMAN:

Geologists? At a plane crash?

PILOT:

Strange, isn't it? In the middle of

the ocean no less.

NORMAN:

What the hell would a geologist be

doing at a plane crash?

Norman looks out the window and sees a group of ships circling in the

water.

EXT. SHIP DECK - DAY

The helicopter descends down onto the helipad, wind gusting about. A

young, female OFFICER -- holding her hat to her head -- rushes to

greet Norman, as he climbs out of the helicopter.

She looks down crudely at his shotty, nylon dufflebag.

OFFICER:

Any other bags, Dr. Johnson?

NORMAN:

Just that. Careful, it's heavy.

She lugs it over her shoulder, no problem.

OFFICER:

No other equipment? Scientific

instruments?

NORMAN:

No, they didn't say --

OFFICER:

This way, sir.

Norman follows the officer away from the helipad.

INT. SHIP

She leads Norman down a flight of stairs.

OFFICER:

Captain Barnes wants to see you

right away, sir.

NORMAN:

Captain who?

OFFICER:

Barnes. He's very eager to meet you.

Been calling us every half hour to

see if you're arrived.
