Untraceable script
Untraceable (2008)
Synopsis: Special Agent Jennifer Marsh (Diane Lane) works in an elite division of the FBI dedicated to fighting cybercrime. She thinks she has seen it all, until a particularly sadistic criminal arises on the Internet. This tech-savvy killer posts live feeds of his crimes on his website; the more hits the site gets, the faster the victim dies. Marsh and her team must find the elusive killer before time runs out.

But then a flash of hard-core pornography. And on the next

monitor, something worse. Are those naked children on the

screen? We’re moving too fast to know.

Marsh stops at a large desk, equipped with four large

monitors and two keyboards. She removes her Glock from its

holster, slips it into a drawer, and locks it.

EXT. OFFICE BUILDING -- LATER -- RAINY NIGHT.

Behind the rainy window pane, we see Marsh, typing quickly,

navigating the web, her screens flashing as pages open and

close.

INT. MARSH’S WORK STATION -- SAME -- RAINY NIGHT.

Seated closest to Marsh is GRIFFIN DOWD, 30, funny-looking,

bright, amiable, typing into a chat room. Despite the

intensity of their concentration, they manage to converse-

GRIFFIN:

I’m serious. It was the best first

date ever. She was amazing. She

looked exactly like her picture.

MARSH:

You’ll never see her again.

GRIFFIN:

How do you know?

MARSH:

Because you look nothing like

yours.

Griffin laughs. Marsh freezes, types something, hits a key.

On one of her monitors, a website appears. She reacts to the

little victory. Curious, Griffin wheels his chair over and

reads the screen-

GRIFFIN:

Tunethief.com?

MARSH:

For the next few hours, anyway.

Tomorrow, it’ll have a new name.

It’s taken me a week to isolate the

creep.

4.

She hits Enter and a nasty gangsta rap song blares from her

speakers. Other workers look over, startled and amused.

Marsh lowers the volume.

MARSH (cont'd)

He offers free downloads of pirated

music. Watch what happens to my

dummy drive when I accept his offer.

Marsh clicks on the download button. On one of the screens,

at lightning speed, we see a digital representation of files

being madly copied.
