Over jungle sound effects, the CAMERA is low, movingthrough brush from the POV of a stalking animal. As the

brush parts, revealing Wall Street and the New York StockExchange, we HEAR the resonant voice of GENE HACKMAN.

The “bullseye” is a large dollar sign in the middle of agiant velcro “dartboard”.

Watch and learn, people!

The Brokers go apeshit as Jordan grabs the Dwarf by hispants and collar. In the Crowd, cash flies as side bets

are made. Jordan winds up, aims for the “dartboard”.

JORDAN (CONT’D)

One. Two. Throw!!

The Brokers cheer, and as the screaming Dwarf takesflight, hurtling toward camera, we FREEZE FRAME:

    • Best thing to do is to write it as a story, then read the Scriptwriter's bible to learn how to format it. That's what I did, and it's not failed me yet! Good luck. xx

  • All of your scripts are awesome, top of the line, but one thing makes all of them COMPLETELY worthless, and that is, none of the dialouges have speaker's name.

    • Hi Muhammad, thanks for your feedback! Some of the scripts on Scripts.com indeed only contain the transcript, without the speaker's name.

      Having said that, lots of other do include the entire script, which includes the speaker's name.

      We'll continue adding more full scripts going forward.

To survive thre streets, they swore loyalty to each other and continued their Mafia ways and put Family before anything else to survive. The Sicilian women stayed quiet in the background but planned control of all aspects. It was an inheritance they pledged to their Spanish pirate ancestors (secrecy) and connections.
