FADE IN:

EXT. PACIFIC OCEAN - DAY

A fishing boat pushes over choppy water. FOUR GUN TOTING

.

MEN on Jet Skis wearing black wet suits and goggles

escort the boat. Flying above it is a HELICOPTER.

INT. FISHING BOAT/CONTROL DECK - CONTINUOUS

A SERBIAN MAN captains the wheel. SERB 2 scans the

horizon with binoculars. He checks the GPS system, then

his watch, then speaks into his throat mic. All italics

are Serbian w/ subtitles:

SERB 2

.

Fifteen minutes to delivery.

EXT. PACIFIC OCEAN - CONTINUOUS

The JET SKIER in the lead weighs in on a radio.

INT. SEA HAWK 1 - CONTINUOUS

The HELICOPTER PILOT weighs in.

.

PILOT:

All clear from above.

EXT. SKY - CONTINUOUS

.

The camera descends as the boat passes, and dives beneath

.

the surface.

EXT. PACIFIC OCEAN - CONTINUOUS

The droning of engines becomes less pronounced. Foam

from the boat and skis bubbles.

.

Calm. Then from out of nowhere five NAVY SEALs wearing REBREATHERS

appear, in neat formation like the Blue Angels.

JET PROPELLED BACKPACKS push the SEALs through the water.

.

The LEAD SEAL:
SHANE WOLFE, points upwards. All eyes

follow his finger to the underbelly of the boat above.

From his belt, Shane takes a steel wand with an adhesive

disc attached, aims it at the fleeing boat and FIRES.

.

A cable shoots up -- THUD... The disc sticks to the

boat’s hull. Shane pushes a button on the wand retracting

the cable and drawing himself closer.

.

Dangling from the cruiser, Shane fixes a BOMB to the

hull. He releases himself from the boat and speeds away -

2.

BOOM. A dense explosion sends ripples through the water

and ELECTRICITY crackling around the boat.

INT. FISHING BOAT/CONTROL DECK - CONTINUOUS

A SURGE of ELECTRICAL FORCE blasts from the control

panel. SPARKS fly.

The two Serbian Men jolt backwards -- WHAM -- and hit the

wall. All the needles inside all the dials go LIMP. The

roar of the engines DIES and the boat STOPS.

EXT. PACIFIC OCEAN, UNDER THE BOAT - CONTINUOUS

Shane slips inside the hull, through the new hole.

INT. SEA HAWK 1 - CONTINUOUS

The chopper slows to a hover. The Pilot looks below.

PILOT:

What’s happening?

EXT. PACIFIC OCEAN - CONTINUOUS

The jet skiers protectively circle the injured boat in a

SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING move, and the Jet Ski drivers are

simultaneously YANKED below the surface: a split second

later they’re replaced by our SEALS (ALSO IN BLACK WET

SUITS AND GOGGLES) -- the switch happens in less than a

second, way too fast for anyone to notice.

INT. FISHING BOAT/CONTROL DECK - CONTINUOUS

The shaken Serbs climb to their feet.

SERBIAN 2

What happened?

They look around, and see the SEALS, on the jet skis: In

the masks they are indistinguishable from the GUN-TOTTING

MEN they switched paces with. All seems clear. Serb 1

pushes on the throttle... nothing.

SERBIAN 1

We’ve been hit. We’re taking on water.

Suddenly the boat lists -- and water pours in, under the

cabin door. They spring into action!

SERBIAN 1 (CONT’D)

Grab the professor, quick!

3.

EXT. DECK - CONTINUOUS

Serb 1 rushes out, shouting orders: He alerts four ARMED

GUARDS and the Jet Ski drivers (now our Seals).

SERBIAN 1

Something must be below us! Shoot! Shoot!

The Armed Guards fire relentlessly into the water. Serb 2

rushes below deck.

INT. SHIP’S HOLD - CONTINUOUS

PROFESSOR CHARLES PLUMMER, bound to a chair and gagged,

tries to YELP as the room begins to flood with water.

INT. SHIP’S CORRIDOR - SIMULTANEOUS

Serb 2 runs down steps to the lowermost hold. He tries to

force the door open. When it finally opens, he is forced

back by a three foot wall of water.
