Suspect Zero script
Suspect Zero (2004)
Synopsis: FBI agent Thomas Mackelway (Aaron Eckhart) is transferred to Albuquerque, N.M., after he mishandles the arrest of a serial killer (Keith Campbell). There he is called to investigate the gruesome murder of a salesman (Kevin Chamberlin), who turns out to be a serial killer himself. After two more killings, Thomas and his partner (Carrie-Anne Moss) conclude that Benjamin O'Ryan (Ben Kingsley), a former FBI agent with psychic abilities, is responsible for the deaths.

O'Ryan slides over DRAWING #3. Again, we don't get to see it.

And we still haven't seen all of O'Ryan's face.

But we can see Speck, and his reaction. Utter horror. In fact

he recoils so violently that his coffee spills.

O'RYAN (CONT'D)

Really says it all, wouldn't you agree?

SPECK:

You're a... You're sick.

O'RYAN

That's a matter of opinion.

SPECK:

You're sick!

He rises, leaving the drawings behind. We STAY WITH HIM as he

crosses the diner - deeply unsettled. He reaches the Manager,

(MEL, balding, 50, in no mood) at the register.

MEL:

Mmm-hmm?

SPECK:

I'm having a problem - with another

customer. I'd like you to ask him to

leave, please.

MEL:

What kind of problem?

SPECK:

He's--

He turns, to point out O'Ryan.

...but the booth, suddenly, is empty. The guy has simply

disappeared, taking those drawings with him.

Speck tightens. Mel eyes him, annoyed.

CUT TO:

3 EXT. ALL-AMERICAN DINER - PARKING LOT - MOMENTS LATER 3

Speck hurries out to his Buick, checking over his shoulder

repeatedly. Gets to the car, fumbles with his keys. They fall

to the asphalt. He grabs them, opens the door.
