The Death Artist script
Synopsis: Ten Years have passed since Kate McKinnon traded her NYPD badge for a lucrative career in the arts. But when a string of exquisitely ritualistic murders begins plaguing the New York art scene, Kate ...

LEONARD:

Well do some looking around the room.

I see cups, ashtrays - let's go...

Walter slinks away - Leonard gets close to Carla, very close, all

the time admiring her head shot -

LEONARD:

Ah, your new head shot...

(Beat)

I like it, very much...

CARLA:

Do you have to be so cold to him?

Leonard smiles, and strokes Carla's hair -

Walter watches this, the turns and walks away -

At the entrance of the club stands LOU, a man in a designer suit, no

tie - he scans the room as Walter passes him -

LOU:

How ya doin'?

WALTER:

Uh, hi.

Walter slinks away, and Lou looks around some more -

Art sees Lou -

Lou subtly gestures to Art and heads into the club -

Art gets up, addressing the two girls -

ART:

I'm out of here.

Art and Lou head toward the MEN'S ROOM -

INT MEN'S ROOM - NIGHT

Art and Lou check the stalls to see the room is empty -

ART:

LOU:

LOU:

ART:

Yeah, he's keeping an eye out, said

That's about it for tonight.

LOU:

Alright I got you, man. It's my

turn for freak patrol.

ART:

You know it.

(Beat)

I'm out of here.

Art heads out, and Lou checks himself in the mirror -

INT JABBERJAW - NIGHT

Maxwell sits at a table with Carla, MAYOLIA, a skinny yet buxom

woman, and CHARLIE, a long-haired hanger-on - Maxwell is looking at

Carla's head shot -

CARLA:

So, do you like it?

MAXWELL:

(bored)

It's perfectly adequate, as far

as those type of things go...

Walter approaches, with a tray of glasses in his hand -

MAXWELL:

(changing subject)

I don't think anyone gets what

I said, their blank faces staring,

mute, unfeeling -
