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.

MARSH (cont’d)

He stole all my financial data...all

my passwords...which I just happened

to have conveniently gathered in a

file called “Passwords.” I also

threw in a keystroke recorder, so I

can follow him. He’s run up a half-

million bucks in fraud in the past

three weeks.

GRIFFIN:

What’s he into?

MARSH:

High-end tech and low-end porn.

GRIFFIN:

Are you sure it’s a guy? If it’s a

woman, she could be my soulmate.

Ping! A sixteen-digit number appears on the screen.

MARSH:

My dummy Am Ex. Let’s hope he uses

it.

The screen changes to ebay.com.

MARSH (cont’d)

Huh. I’m surprised he has the

patience.

The screen changes to the item page of a CONSERVATIVE, GOLD,

SWISS WATCH.

MARSH (cont’d)

Okay, it’s a “Buy It Now” item.

Fine, buy it now, asshole.

(ping!)

Thanks.

5.

Marsh starts working her keys at a furious pace, her hands a

blur. Even Griffin, who’s used to it, watches in wonder. He

glances over and sees other workers glancing out of their

cubicles, watching, as well.

.

MARSH (cont’d)

I’ve got his IP address. Now I’ll

get his physical one.

Phone directories appear. Marsh, typing with one hand and

not even looking at the screen, begins typing on her second

keyboard.

MARSH (cont’d)

There it is.

A profile pop up: SANDRA HOBBS, 221 BAYSHORE BOULEVARD,

TAMPA, FLORIDA 33611.

GRIFFIN:

So it is a woman.

MARSH:

Fifty-six years old.

GRIFFIN:

Damn, a year past my cut-off.

MARSH:

An ER nurse. Lived there her whole

life. No priors. And no history

of on-line purchases.

GRIFFIN:

It’s not her.

MARSH:

It’s gotta be a neighbor, coming in

through her wireless router.

Marsh’s hands are a blur again. On one of her monitors, we

see a SATELLITE VIEW OF TAMPA. The shot tightens and

tightens, moving closer to Earth. With her mouse, Marsh

circles a house, seen from a 100 feet above.
