FADE IN:

EXT. ALLEYWAY (VILLAGE) - DUSK

Gloomy, last light. From out of the shadows comes --

A DOG. A dog of war. Big, mangy, muscular, scary. As

he moves down the alley, the way becomes increasingly

choked with fallen structures. and signs of tumult.

EXT. BATTLEFIELD - DUSK

TRACKING WITH THE DOG as he comes onto a battlefield.

The hellish scene is REVEALED TO US SLOWLY --

SERIES OF SHOTS:

as the Dog traverses a landscape of --

BODIES, frozen in contorted death poses. This was

furious, hand-to-hand fighting between human SOLDIERS and

nightmare CREATURES, their corpses now in piles to the

horizon.

The Dog climbs a mound of casualties. At the top, the

Dog looks back across the battlefield. The Dog's eyes

are sad, his expression weary and disgusted.

DISSOLVE TO:

EXT. THE PALACE OF ACRISIUS - NIGHT

The entrance is patrolled by a dozen PALACE GUARDS. They

don't see the Dog pad silently to a fissure in the palace

wall and disappear inside.

INT. THE PALACE OF ACRISIUS - GREAT HALL - NIGHT

Bloodied and battered, the King's GENERALS are

disagreeing loudly about strategy. A loud BANGING sound

pierces the hubbub, and the officers quiet, turning to --

KING ACRISIUS, a striking man in his prime, his handsome

face marked by one crooked scar on his jaw. He commands

the room --

KING ACRISIUS:

Now we end the debate about

tactics... and begin to plan for

victory.

2.

AT THE BACK OF THE HALL

The Dog stares at the King. Then slips away.

INT. THE PALACE OF ACRISIUS - GREAT STAIRS - NIGHT

Unseen by exhausted Guards, the Dog bounds up the stairs.

INT. THE PALACE OF ACRISIUS - ROYAL APARTMENT - CORRIDOR -

NIGHT:

The Dog approaches a doorway; stops to watch from the

shadows.

INT. THE PALACE OF ACRISIUS - BEDCHAMBER - DOG'S POV -

NIGHT:

In the dim bedchamber, the SILHOUETTE of QUEEN DANAE as a

LADY-IN-WAITING removes her gown, revealing the Queen's

perfect body as she slips into bed. The Lady-in-Waiting

leaves.

The Dog's eyes. He moves forward.

FLOOR-LEVEL

TRACKING WITH the Dog's legs as they MORPH INTO HUMAN

LEGS. The CAMERA RISES BEHIND a towering male figure,

who roughly pulls a curtain aside.

In the bed, the Queen is startled, then pleased.

QUEEN DANAE:

My King! Has the strategy been

set so quickly?

REVERSE ANGLE:

The looming figure looks exactly like King Acrisius,

including the distinctive scar. He regards her hungrily.

QUEEN DANAE:

Come to your Queen, my King.

INT. THE PALACE OF ACRISIUS - GREAT STAIRS - SUNRISE

The real King Acrisius wearily climbs the stairs with

AIDES and Guards. Suddenly, the King stops.
