FADE IN:

EXT. HADES - DUSK

We are MOVING TOWARD the Tyrell Corporation across a

vast plain of industrialization, menacing shapes on the

horizon, stacks belching flames five hundred feet into

the sky the color of cigar ash. The CAMERA MOVES INTO

a window in the large pyramid-shaped building. A man

is sitting at a table. Another man enters the room and

sits down. The following scene is reflected in the eye

until HOLDEN is seated.

INT. TYRELL CORPORATION INTERROGATION ROOM - DUSK

The eye is magnified and deeply revealed. Flecks of

green and yellow in a field of milky blue. Icy fila-

ments surround the undulating center.

The eye is brown in a tiny screen. On the metallic

lap. Despite the obvious heat, he looks very cool.

The man facing him is lean, hollow-cheeked, and dressed

in grey. Detached and efficient, he looks like a cop

or an accountant. His name is Holden and he's all

business, except for the sweat on his face.

The room is large and humid. Rows of salvaged junk

are stacked neatly against the walls. Two large FANS

WHIRR above their heads.

LEON:

Okay if I talk?

Holden doesn't answer. He's centering Leon's eye on

the machine.

LEON:

I kinda get nervous when I take

tests.

HOLDEN:

Don't move.

LEON:

Sorry.

He tries not to move, but finally his lips can't help

a sheepish smile.

LEON:

I already had I.Q. test this year...

but I don't think I never had a...
