FADE IN:

EXT. PRAGUE - NIGHT

On a hill above the city is an old CATHEDRAL. The night is

spooky, with harsh shadows playing across the cobblestones

and medieval walls.

A NERVOUS YOUNG HACKER makes his way down an alley.

There is a DOOR at the end of the alley. MUSIC can be faintly

heard from inside.

EXT. ROOFTOP - NIGHT

High above the street an INTRUDER DRESSED ALL IN BLACK spies

from the roof. He's watching with NIGHT VISION GOGGLES.

He pulls out a CROSSBOW and FIRES.

A BOLT flies, trailing CABLE.

THUNK! It sticks into the alley wall below.

EXT. THE ALLEY - NIGHT

As he passes by the ominous Cathedral, the Hacker spins,

sure he's heard something.

But there's nothing there. He continues on.

Then the Intruder comes sliding down the ZIP-LINE from above.

WHAM! He kicks the Hacker into the wall, knocking him out.

The Intruder pulls off his mask, revealing the chiseled

features of a dashing BRITISH SECRET AGENT. His name is

STERLING.

STERLING:

I hate to drop in unexpectedly.

Sterling searches the Hacker and pulls a SMALL BLACK CASE

from his coat. Inside the case is a DATA CHIP. Sterling tucks

it away.

Sterling unzips his black jumpsuit, revealing a crisp TUXEDO

underneath. He pulls out CAR KEYS. In a quick insert we see

the "ASTON-MARTIN" LOGO.

As he strolls back out the alley, he HEARS something and

flattens against the wall.

A BLACKED OUT SUV screeches to a stop, blocking his exit.

The SUV's HEADLIGHTS illuminate the slumped Hacker.

BAD GUYS get out to investigate, pulling out weapons.

Cornered, Sterling heads deeper into the alley, staying in

the shadows. He gets to that DOOR the Hacker was heading

towards.

As he PICKS THE LOCK Sterling can hear MUSIC from inside. He

smooths his hair and prepares to "blend in" with the crowd.

INT. CONCERT HALL - NIGHT

Sterling comes through the door and his face falls. He's

stepped into a loud METAL CONCERT.

We see a GO-GO DANCER in LATEX. Onstage is RAMMSTEIN, a

bizarre German industrial-metal band.

The tattooed YOUNG CROWD slam dances and swings glo-stix

over their heads. Some wear rubber BRAIN SKULLCAPS outfitted

with fiber optic lights. It's a sea of SPIKED HAIR and BONDAGE

OUTFITS.

Sterling squares his jaw and starts pushing through the crowd.

With his tuxedo he sticks out like a penguin in a chicken

coop.

ON THE BALCONY ABOVE THE CROWD stands a wild haired young

GANGSTER with PIERCED BROWS. With him is a STREET-TOUGH GIRL

with multi-colored hair. They look like a post-Apocalyptic

Bonnie & Clyde. They are YORGI and PETRA.

Yorgi checks his watch. His delivery is late. Then his CELL

PHONE rings. He's getting the news from outside.

He looks down, spots Sterling amidst the moshing crowd. With

that look, that tux, there's no mistaking what he is.

They make EYE CONTACT and Sterling gives a little nod.

Yorgi calmly issues orders into his phone.

Immediately VIKTOR starts moving in Sterling's direction.

Viktor is huge, with a MOHAWK and a six-inch GOATEE.

Sterling sees him advancing and makes for the exit, pushing

through the freaky crowd.

EXT. CONCERT HALL - NIGHT

Sterling's ASTON-MARTIN VANTAGE screeches away from the curb.

INT. ASTON-MARTIN - MOVING - NIGHT

Sterling is at the wheel of his spy car. He plugs the DATA

CHIP into the dash and punches buttons. A computer screen

says "DATA DOWNLOADING".

He sees a BLACKED-OUT SUV racing up behind him.

He accelerates and hits a SWITCH.

ARMORED PLATING slides up over the rear window.

EXT. COBBLESTONE STREET - NIGHT

The SUV is right behind him. Viktor rolls down the passenger

window, readies his PISTOL.
