Walking Tall script
Walking Tall (2004)
Synopsis: Walking Tall is a 2004 action film. A remake of the 1973 film of the same name, it stars The Rock and Johnny Knoxville. Like the original film, it was based on the real-life story of Sheriff Buford Pusser and utilized many elements from his life. A number of aspects were changed, including the main character's name (to "Chris Vaughn") and the setting was moved from McNairy County, Tennessee to Kitsap County, Washington, United States.

I substitute at the elementary school,

Michelle pitches in. We try to keep

things simple.

A kid walks in.

you you were barely walking.

up in the garage. Think you could teach
