He punches her full force in the face - she collapses,
knocked out cold. Rice rushes over.
Yeah, just a nick ...
Then, over Reilly's shoulder, Rice sees a dark SILHOUETTE
emerging from behind a machine. Rice draws his pistol.
As Reilly whirls, the Silhouette raises a Mac-11.
Rice shoves Reilly aside as the Silhouette OPENS FIRE...
Diving for cover, Reilly flings back his trenchcoat, whips
out his 9mm and RETURNS FIRE at the Silhouette, blowing the
shit out of windows behind, sparks showering off machines.
Silence for an instant, Reilly looks for Rice and finds him
bleeding to death on the floor nearby - he is completely
exposed to the line of fire.
The Silhouette and another FIGURE OPEN FIRE on Reilly.
SWAN, 40s, crazy-brilliant, manic eyes... and one of his men,
pale, sweaty, wearing an EARRING, 30s, continue the barrage.
Swan fires ONE SHOT at a time at Rice, deliberately aiming
not to kill him, trying to flush Reilly out.
Rice screams as BULLETS RIP into his legs. Reilly tries to
reach him but can't, shots forcing him back.
A dark-eyed man with a BEARD appears in the b.g. and stealths
towards Reilly from behind.
Reilly' face is in agony as Rice moans in pain. He glances
urgently from the gunmen to the exit behind them, to The Girl
lying next to him -- what's keeping them there? Obviously
She stirs. Desperate, Reilly grabs her by the hair, shoves
his 9mm to her head. Using her as a shield, he drags her in
front of Rice to protect him.
Swan's eyes flare. He steps out into the open, gun aimed at
Rice, eyes locked murderously on Reilly.
