KEY: (OC)= Off Computer (VO)= Voice Over (OS)= Off Screen **This transcript must not be copied** FADE IN: EXT. SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - DAY The movie starts with some aerial shots of Sydney monuments like the Opera house and so on. We then get a shot of a top of a building and we get a CAPTION at the bottom of the screen. CAPTION BIOCYTE PHARMACEUTICALS INT. LAB - BIOCYTE - DAY We see NEKHOROVICH wearing two gloves in a clear box which is inside a confinement room. In the box are three space-looking guns. NEKHOROVICH(VO) Well, Dimitri. Every search for a hero must begin with something that every hero requires, a villain. Therefore, in our search for a hero, Belairiform, we created the monster, Chimera. NEKHOROVICH picks up one gun and points it to his wrist and pulls the trigger. INT. LOBBY - BIOCYTE - DAY NEKHOROVICH exits the lobby with a briefcase and checks his timer which is counting down for some reason. He continues to walk. NEKHOROVICH(VO) I beg you, Dimitri, come to Sydney and accompany me to Atlanta immediately. However we travel, I must arrive at my destination within twenty hours of departure. EXT. FRONT ENTRANCE - BIOCYTE - DAY NEKHOROVICH exits the building and stops to see children playing and singing. CHILDREN ...We a pocket full of posies. A tissue, a tissue, we all fall down. The children all fall to the ground and laugh. The picture morphs back to NICOVICH's face. He continues to walk. INT. PLANE - THE ROCKYS - DAY NEKHOROVICH looks out of his window on the plane, he sits back to reveal ETHAN HUNT sitting next to him. The CAPTAIN speaks on the PA system. CAPTAIN(OS) We are two and a half hours away from Atlanta, out you window now, we have a great view of the Rocky Mountains. NEKHOROVICH looks at his watch. HUNT You keep staring at that watch as if your life depended on it, Doctor. NEKHOROVICH Yes, I suppose I'm a bit anxious. HUNT You'll soon be with old friends. NEKHOROVICH I'm with an old friend now, Dimitri. HUNT I'm sorry I couldn't be on your happier circumstances. NEKHOROVICH I'm sorry too. You are sorry and I'm sorry. Did you know Gradski thought about a few? HUNT Did he know before the end that you two had succeeded? NEKHOROVICH Yes, he knew. Just... HUNT ... Not in time to see it. NEKHOROVICH No! After you have been infected with Chimera, for twenty hours, nothing can save you. Not even Belairiform. HUNT You can carry them together. Safely? NEKHOROVICH Yes. And you get us to safe place with them in Atlanta, thank God. NEKHOROVICH pats the briefcase. The plane seems to be failing. The captain comes back on the PA. CAPTAIN This is your captain again. We've experienced a slight, but abrupt drop in cabin pressure. As a precaution, I have released the oxygen masks. Please put them on, sit back and relax, there is nothing to worry about. The CAPTAIN releases the masks and the passengers begin to worry. We see WALLIS close a laptop and walk to the back of the plane while the other passengers put on the masks. NEKHOROVICH Are you concerned? HUNT Well, not so far. Just put on your oxygen mask, I'll see what's going on. NEKHOROVICH Okay. HUNT leaves his seat and walks to the back also. NEKHOROVICH puts on his seatbelt. INT. COCKPIT - PLANE - DAY The CAPTAIN is on the radio and is sending a transmission for help. CAPTAIN Denver centre, this is Trans Pac two two zero seven, seven four seven heavy. We are unable to maintain cabin pressurisation, initated a descent to one six thousand. As the CAPTAIN sends the transmission, his co-pilot has slowly passed out. The CAPTAIN decreases the flight level one zero thousand and engages the auto-pilot and leaves the cockpit. INT. PASSENGER CABIN - PLANE - DAY The other passengers on the plane also pass out with their oxygen masks on. NEKHOROVICH looks worried. NEKHOROVICH God! The CAPTAIN, who is really HUGH STAMP, leaves the cockpit and takes his tie off. He puts on a parachute and a thermal suit with the other man, WALLIS, who went to the back earlier. HUNT goes back to his seat next to NEKHOROVICH. He sits down. NEKHOROVICH It seems that we have a problem, Dimitri! HUNT You keep calling me Dimitri. You really shouldn't. NEKHOROVICH Your not Dimitri? HUNT whacks NEKHOROVICH in the chest and then into the front seat. HUNT takes NEKHOROVICH's briefcase. HUNT No! WALLIS and STAMP come to him. HUNT stands up. HUNT Wallis, hold onto this. Hands over the briefcase to WALLIS. ETHAN HUNT suddenly rips off his face to reveal that it is not HUNT but SEAN AMBROSE, another IMF agent. He begins to talk. AMBROSE(HUNT's voice) Alright, remember to pull the... AMBROSE suddenly stops and rips off a voice changing device from his neck. AMBROSE Remember to pull the O2 tanks, Gunter. STAMP All done Chief. They open up a trap door on the bottom of the cabin aisle. They put on goggles and one at a time, jump out of the plane. INT. COCKPIT - PLANE - DAY A WARNING VOICE continues to sound from the cockpit switchboard. The co-pilot wakes up from passing out to find that the plane is heading towards a mountain. WARNING VOICE Terrain! Terrain! Pull up! Pull up! (repeats) The co-pilot pulls up but it is not enough to miss the mountain and the plane crashes and explodes. EXT. CLIFFS - SEMI-DESERT AERA - DAY We see the actual ETHAN HUNT climbing a cliff face with no rigs or other forms of protection. He continues climbing and gets to a point when he changes places on the cliff face. HUNT jumps to the other spot and makes it. He suddenly slips and is holding onto the cliff face with one hand. He quickly regains his grip and continues to climb. Finally he makes it to the top of the cliff. Suddenly, helicopter flies by. A guy in a suit, sitting on the edge of the chopper points to him and fires a small missile. The small missile gets stuck in the ground. HUNT makes a smirk. The chopper leaves. HUNT walks to the small missile and opens it to see OAKLEY-style sunglasses. He makes a smirk and puts the glasses on. The sunglasses begin a retinal scan. SWANBECK's voice comes from the glasses. SWANBECK Morning Mr. Hunt. Your mission, should you chose to accept it, involves recovery of a stolen item, designated, Chimera. You may select any two team members, but it is essential that the third team member be Nyah Nordoff-Hall. She is a civilian, and a highly capable professional thief. You have forty-eight hours to recruit Miss Nordoff-Hall and meet me in Seville to receive your assignment. As always, should you or any member of your IM Force be caught or killed, the secretary will disavow all knowledge of your actions. And Mr. Hunt, the next time you go on holiday, please be good enough to tell us where your going. FEMALE VOICE This message will self-destruct in five seconds. HUNT(to sunglasses) If I let you know where I'm going, I won't be on holiday. HUNT throws away the sunglasses and they explode in mid air. The explosion follows through to the main title and opening credits. TITLE MISSION IMPOSSIBLE II The TITLE explodes and shatters into many pieces. A Spanish dancer goes across the screen, which goes to the next scene. INT. MANSION - SEVILLE - SPAIN - NIGHT HUNT is in a crowded room with dancers in the middle, he walks around the dancers to see NYAH on the other side on the dancers. He follows her around the dancers. A dancer goes past and she disappears. HUNT continues looking for her. We see NYAH walk up a flight of stairs and up to a higher level. NYAH walks up to a window and puts on gloves. We cut between the dancers and her. NYAH walks across the level to another room. She pick the lock and enters the room. We cut back to the dancers who are finished. An applause erupts. INT. ROOM - MANSION - NIGHT NYAH is in the room, the applause can still be heard from there. She pulls out what looks like a make up case with a detector inside. The detector leads her to a bath where the beeps are getting faster. She pulls out a series of picks and slots cards. She finds a slot in the wall and picks it. A compartment next to her opens up with other compartments inside it and is unsure of which one to pick. HUNT I see you've found it. NYAH turns around to see ETHAN HUNT sitting on the edge of the bath. NYAH What are you doing here? HUNT Think you're the only one who can pick a lock? NYAH Hmph! Not just a pretty face after all. The HOST of the party enters the room. NYAH pulls HUNT into the bath. HUNT is on top of NYAH. NYAH Do you mind if I'm on top? HUNT No. Either way works for me. The two turn around in the bath. NYAH comes on top. The HOST leaves the room with champagne and glasses, NYAH gets up and continues to pick at one of the locks. HUNT You'll never find it there. NYAH loses concentration. NYAH Damn it! Find what? HUNT His excellent Bvlgari necklace that goes up for auction on Tuesday. NYAH And are you going to tell me where it is? HUNT Far left. NYAH starts picking at the lock. NYAH This is very disconcerting. HUNT Hey, you put me here. I just do as I'm told. NYAH Right! NYAH picks the lock and opens the compartment to find a box. She opens the box to find the necklace. She undoes it and slips it between her breasts. She closes the box and puts it back in the compartment. NYAH Now, who are you? And what's it going to cost me? HUNT I wouldn't do that! NYAH What? NYAH closes the compartment door and the alarm goes off. HUNT That! Security guards swarm the room like a SWAT team. NYAH and HUNT quickly pack the gear away. HUNT calms the guards down. HUNT Tre kilo! Tre kilo! HOST Mr. Kieths, it is you. (to guards)It is Mr. Kieths, our security engineer. Apologise! HUNT waves some gear behind his back to NYAH, she takes it. HUNT No, no need to apologise. Now Miss Hall, my associate, has your necklace in a very safe place. But obviously we do feel that the alarm should have gone off a little sooner. Isn't that right, Miss Hall? NYAH Oh! Absolutely. Much, much too long I'd say. HUNT (to HOST) With the circumstances, I'd think that we'd recommend that resetting the sensors to respond to a lighter to a lighter load. How do you feel about forty kilos, Miss Hall? NYAH Perfect! HUNT Shall we? HUNT puts out his hand as if he asked to dance. He gets her hand and NYAH begins to walk about but HUNT pulls her back. HUNT Miss Hall? NYAH Hmm? HUNT Haven't you forgotten something? NYAH pulls the necklace out from between her breasts. She hands it to the HOST. HOST What are you trying to do, Senorita? Rob me? NYAH The thought had crossed my mind. EXT. GARDENS TO DRIVEWAY - MANSION - NIGHT NYAH I'm missing something here, aside from my half a million pound necklace. Even if I screwed up the job, I could be walking out of the bloody thing. HUNT At least you walked. NYAH If you weren't going to let me get away with it, then why did you let me go through it? HUNT To see how good you were. I was hoping that we might work together. NYAH Sounds terrific! Mu cha co! A bell boy comes to her with her car. NYAH Now, be serious. What ever it is your talking about, you can not possibly want me after tonight's performance. HUNT You didn't do that badly! NYAH You apologising for me? Quite a gentleman. HUNT Not really, I triggered the alarm. HUNT holds up a small remote and presses it. The alarm goes off. HUNT Sorry! NYAH gets into her car. NYAH I don't do laundry, cook, or put up with cheeky bastards who set me up on their territories so they can poach on mine. NYAH puts the car into drive and drives off. Leaving HUNT standing on the driveway. EXT. MOUNTIAN HIGHWAY - SEVILLE - SPAIN - DAY The scene starts off with a shot of the sun rising. We then get an over head shot of NYAH's car. Then move to get a shot of her face while driving. Suddenly, her phone goes off. She answers it. NYAH Hello? HUNT(OS) Hi! Would you mind slowing down? NYAH Where did you get this number? I don't even have it? HUNT's car comes from the bushes and begins to follow her. We get a shot of HUNT. HUNT Would you like it? NYAH sees him in her rear view mirror. HUNT waves back. NYAH hangs up. HUNT redials the number. The phone doesn't answer. HUNT drives his car to make it along side NYAH's car. HUNT Pull over and listen to me, will ya? Just listen. NYAH Listen to what? HUNT I need your help! And then you can use mine. NYAH Your help?! What are you talking about? HUNT I'm talking about Scotland Yard, Interpol, every Dutch authority. I can make them all go away. NYAH Oh bloody hell! You're a spy! HUNT smiles. NYAH looks unhappy. NYAH If you want me, you gotta catch me! NYAH rams HUNT'S car. HUNT Whoa! NYAH speeds off, HUNT is behind her. A car chase starts. HUNT nearly hits a car but misses and straps his seat belt on. HUNT smiles and drives to NYAH's side. HUNT Having fun? NYAH rams HUNT off the road, his car spins back onto the road and nearly misses an on-coming car. HUNT Sorry! HUNT is still behind NYAH. Hunt comes onto the other side and again missing a car. HUNT Sorry! The two continue to drive. HUNT Watch the road! Watch the road! NYAH sees an on-coming car and goes off the road and comes back on. Another car drives into NYAH's car and she hits HUNT's car. HUNT and NYAH's cars are spinning together on the road. The cars stop spinning at the edge of the highway. NYAH falls from her seat and is holding onto the door. There is a big drop. HUNT comes and picks her up. NYAH What is your name? HUNT Ethan Hunt. NYAH Well, Ethan Hunt. What is it that you want to talk to me about? HUNT A lot more than I thought. NYAH Awfully short notice. HUNT Care to wait a decent interpol? NYAH Who wants to be decent! The two begin to kiss in NYAH'a car. The picture fades to a small window. INT. HOTEL ROOM - SEVILLE - SPAIN - DAY We pan from the window to the bed. We see HUNT in the bed. We continue to pan to see NYAH also In the bed. HUNT is being affectionate to NYAH. She wakes up. HUNT What have you got against spies? NYAH makes a funny comment. They both laugh. HUNT This wasn't exactly by the book! NYAH What kind of book do they have? HUNT Oh, they got a book for everything. NYAH So, this thing that these bloke pinched. HUNT I don't know who pinched it. I don't even know what it is? NYAH Then what am I doing here? The two smile and laugh. NYAH What are you suppose to be? A thief to catch a thief? HUNT Sort of! The two roll over in the bed with HUNT on top of NYAH. HUNT Damn your beautiful. NYAH smiles. The two then kiss and make out in the bed. EXT. CITY STREETS - SEVILLE - SPAIN - NIGHT We see metal sculptures with flames lit in them. We see people with huge crosses with the Jesus figure. The people are singing and chanting hymns. Hunt walks through the crowd and up a flight of stairs to a room. INT. ROOM - CITY - SEVILLE - SPAIN - NIGHT HUNT enters the room to see SWANBECK at the window. SWANBECK sees HUNT. SWANBECK Espresso, cappuccino? HUNT No thanks. SWANBECK Sit down, sit down! HUNT sits down at a big table. Next to him is a laptop. SWANBECK walks around. SWANBECK Festivals are a pain in the ass. Honouring their saints by setting them on fire. Let's you know what they think of saints, doesn't it? Damn nearly set me on fire on my way over here. Sorry I barged in on your vacation. HUNT I'm sorry I didn't let you know where I was. SWANBECK Don't be. It wouldn't be a vacation if you did. HUNT Well, you're sorry and I'm sorry! SWANBECK Why did you phrase it like that? HUNT Like what? SWANBECK Your sorry and I'm sorry. HUNT You got to be kidding? SWANBECK opens the laptop and accesses a video file. The file appears with NEKHOROVICH sitting in a chair. SWANBECK plays the file. NEKHOROVICH(OC) Well Dimitri, once again I need your help, just as in the old days, when you saved our lives, saved our very sanity. Dimitri, we have this little problem. Every search for a hero must begin with something that every hero requires, a villain. Therefore, in our search for our hero, Belariform, we created the monster, Chimera. I beg you, Dimitri, come to Sydney and accompany me to Atlanta immediately. However we travel, I must arrive at my destination within twenty hours of departure. I fear that I can not entrust this to no one but you. Dimitri, as we say I am sorry and you are sorry. The video file finishes. SWANBECK Do you have any idea what the hell he's talking about? HUNT An idea? Yep! SWANBECK Like? HUNT Like, it's a good to pick him up in a hurry, but a bad idea to fly him on a commercial carrier. Is he still in Sydney? SWANBECK Doctor Vladimir Nekhorovich is dead, so is his colleague, Gradski, but that happened earlier. We had Nekhrovich on a flight from Sydney that crashed in the Rockys. HUNT Dead?! SWANBECK Are you listening to me? HUNT If he didn't want to go anywhere without me, how did you get him on that flight? SWANBECK Oh, you were there! SWANBECK accesses another file with HUNT's and AMBROSE's faces and facial records. SWANBECK When I couldn't find you, I had to replace you. Sean Ambrose was the obvious choice. He doubled you two or three times? HUNT Twice! SWANBECK What did you think of him? HUNT We had our reservations about each other. Isn't it a little late in the day to be askin' me that? SWANBECK No, not necessarily. (to man) Airline records. The man hands SWANBECK photos and records. SWANBECK Mr. Captain Harold Macintosh is the pilot of the flight 2207. As the media and government agencies are concerned, Captain Macintosh died in the flight. Infact, he missed it, but he did however make the next flight in cargo, stuffed into a rather small suitcase considering his size. SWANBECK hands the photos and records to HUNT. SWANBECK Now, someone on that flight planned an operation designed to bring the plane down and make it look like an accident. Someone skilled enough to bring the whole thing off the ledge. HUNT So there is one thing that we know that Ambrose doesn't! SWANBECK And you do think it was Ambrose. Your not surprised. HUNT Ambrose feels he hasn't done the job unless he leaves a lot of hats on the ground. SWANBECK The question is "Why?". What was this "Chimera" that Nekhorovich was carrying. HUNT Only Ambrose knows that. SWANBECK Then in case, you must recover this "Chimera" and bring it to us. HUNT In order to do that he figures out to make money. SWANBECK That is where Miss Hall comes in. HUNT Excuse me? SWANBECK Miss hall and Ambrose had a relationship, which she took very seriously. She walked away and he has been wanting her back ever since. I believe that she is the surest and quickest way of finding him. HUNT And then what? SWANBECK Make sure she continues to see him, gets him to confide in her and report to you. HUNT stands up. HUNT You made it sound as if I was recruiting her for skills as a thief. SWANBECK Well then I miss lead you or you made the wrong assumption, either way, we are asking her to resume her prior relationship not doing anything she has already done. Voluntarily, I might add. HUNT No she's got no training for this kinda thing. SWANBECK But to go to be with a man and lie to him, she's awomen, she's got all the training that she needs. HUNT I don't think I can get her to do it. SWANBECK You mean it will be difficult? HUNT Very! SWANBECK Well, this is not Mission Difficult, Mr. Hunt, it's Mission Impossible. Difficult should be a walk in the park for you. I'm open to suggestions if you can think of a quicker way to Ambrose, your welcome to try. By the way, you might want to look at these if you have any further problems about her getting to do the job. The man places a digital camera on the table. HUNT looks at the camera. EXT. CITY STREETS - SEVILLE - SPAIN - NIGHT We get a shot of HUNT walking through the crowd in slow motion. INT. HOTEL ROOM - SEVILLE - SPAIN - NIGHT NYAH is viewing the photos from the camera on a laptop. She looks unhappy. She gets out of her seat. NYAH How many people are capable of something like that? HUNT Sean Ambrose for one! NYAH Hmph! Right! NYAH walks to the balcony outside. HUNT follows her. HUNT This wasn't what I had in mind, Nyah. NYAH But it is what you'd like me to do. HUNT turns around, but doesn't say anything. NYAH What? Oh, let my conscience be my guide, is that it? HUNT Something like that! NYAH I don't have a conscience. I'm a bloody thief. Are you going to try to force me to do this? HUNT Generally, I don't favour coursing someone not when there's a chance my life can end up in their hands. NYAH Is that the only reason? HUNT shakes his head "no". HUNT Can you think of a better way? NYAH Me? No! But I was just hoping you might thinking somewhere in this course of business that this got personal as well as physical. HUNT Would it make you feel better if I didn't want you to do this? NYAH Yeah, much better! HUNT Then feel better. HUNT turns away and looks back into the street. NYAH You know, Sean will never be anything but suspicious if I said "Hey honey, I'm home". HUNT What wouldn't make him suspicious? NYAH That I needed him in some urgent way! Destitute. In serious trouble, the guy can not possibly sort out myself. HUNT Serious trouble, Nyah! Something I can always arrange. We see NYAH have her mug shots taken from all sides of her face. We then cut to HUNT holding a small tracer in his hand. HUNT(VO) This transponder chip is completely untraceable. Another shot sees NYAH'S ankle being injected with the transponder. HUNT(VO) It transmits your location to a satellite which can be read by only this computer. We see shots of a satellite and HUNT typing on a computer. HUNT(VO) We can track you within three feet. We see maps on the screen quickly zooming in on NYAH's location. HUNT(VO) Since you arrest and in sending news bulletins to every law enforcement agency in the world. We see AMBROSE typing on the computer, getting information on NYAH. HUNT(VO) I know Sean Ambrose. I guarantee after that airline crash, he's monitoring everywhere. He knows your out there, and he has the means to get you out. We see shots of AMBROSE's screen saying things like "DETENTION" and "SEVILLE". AMBROSE smiles. HUNT(VO) Nyah! Nyah! I'm not going to lose you. We see NYAH exit a building like a free woman. We then see a shot of a sunglass lense, with her reflection. EXT. HARBOUR - SYDNEY - AUSTRALIA - DAY We see some aerial shots of the city, harbour and monuments. We then see a speed boat with NYAH sitting at the back. The speed boat is speeding through the harbour. EXT. BUSH - AUSTRALIA - DAY Wee see a helicopter come from the bottom of the screen. Suddenly a shot of a profile comes up with the name "BAIRD, BILLY". We get a shot of BILLY and a few shots of the bush. Another profile comes up. It comes up as "STICKELL, LUTHER". We get a shot of STICKELL and more bush. We see the chopper land at a farm. HUNT comes out from a shack. He walks up to the. BAIRD and STICKELL exit the chopper. BAIRD Ethan Hunt! G'day mate, I'm William Baird but Billy is okay. If there's anything you need, move or watch, just let me know and I'm your man. I'll go have a look around. Har har! STICKELL walks up to HUNT and accidentally steps on manure. STICKELL Shit! HUNT Yes it is! HUNT smiles. STICKELL This ain't funny! I paid for these eighth hundred dollar shoes and you got me in a chopper with this man. EXT. HARBOUR - SYDNEY - DAY We see the boat still in the harbour. We then get a shot of AMBROSE in his house as the boat comes. The boat comes to the pier, AMBROSE comes out, STAMP is on the balcony. INT. SHACK - BUSH - DAY We see a map appear and NYAH's transponder on the map as well. STICKELL Computer's up! I got her! HUNT Let us put in the coordinates, get a visual. STICKELL enters the coordinates. The satellite moves into position. EXT. PIER - AMBROSE'S HOUSE - DAY NYAH gets of the boat and walks up the pier. AMBROSE watches her. We get a shot of him at the end of the pier and NYAH comes from behind the camera. INT. SHACK - BUSH - DAY HUNT Visual is not coming up. STICKELL The satellite doesn't work as fast as I do. BAIRD Yeah, I heard about you, Luther. I just want to say that it's an honour and a pleasure to be working with you blokes. STICKELL finally gets the visual up. HUNT Come on, isn't there any way to speed this up? STICKELL With what? This is the only computer that will do this. The visual disappears back to the map. EXT. PIER - AMBROSE'S HOUSE - DAY NYAH is still walking up the pier to AMBROSE. STAMP watches from the balcony of the house. Her scarf comes loose by the wind. AMBROSE catches it with one hand and puts it back around her neck. AMBROSE pulls her closer and kisses her. INT. SHACK - BUSH - DAY STICKELL has the visual up and working. STICKELL Ethan! Here we go! The visual shows AMBROSE and NYAH kissing. BAIRD Hey! Now there's a bloke who knows how to give a proper welcome. STICKELL looks at BAIRD. BAIRD I don't wanna get you wrong mate, but you were very friendly also. Is it him then? STICKELL It's him Billy! BAIRD Yeah, so we got him! HUNT We don't know what we got! Because we don't know what he's got, where he's got and what he's doing in Sydney with it. HUNT turns away and looks outside. EXT. PIER - AMBROSE'S HOUSE - DAY The two finish kissing. AMBROSE sees her bag. AMBROSE Not much luggage. NYAH I left in a bit if a hurry. I'm trying to be grateful, Sean. How in the world did you find me? AMBROSE How I usually find you, Nyah. Magic! AMBROSE takes her bag and they walk up the stairs. STAMP leaves the balcony. INT. SECURTIY ROOM - AMBROSE'S HOUSE - DAY WALLIS is monitoring NYAH, STAMP enters. WALLIS No flies on her, no bugs either, no transmissions. She's clean. STAMP All cats are! INT. AMBROSE'S BEDROOM - DAY AMBROSE and NYAH enter the bedroom. NYAH Your bedroom! (pauses) My bedroom? AMBROSE walks around NYAH, looking at her. INT. SHACK - DAY HUNT is staring at the dot of NYAH's transmission on the computer screen. STICKELL She did it! She's in the compound! HUNT Yeah! We just rolled up a snowball and tossed it into hell. Now we'll see what chance it has. INT. AMBROSE'S BEDROOM - DAY AMBROSE Try it on. AMBROSE gives her a dress. AMBROSE Go ahead. He stands back. AMBROSE I'm dying to see if I remembered your size. NYAH turns around and begins to undress herself. She grabs the dress but suddenly AMBROSE grabs her wrist. NYAH You're not interested in seeing how it looks. AMBROSE Oh, I am. Later. EXT. SHACK - LATER AFTERNOOM HUNT walks out of the shack and sees the sun setting. NEKHOROVICH(OC) Every search for a hero must begin with something that every hero requires... INT. SHACK - LATE AFTERNOON STICKELL is drinking coffee, HUNT is standing up. Both listening to NEKHOROVICH's video. NEKOVICH(OC)(VO) ...a villain, therefore in our search for our hero, Belairiform, we created a monster, Chimera. STICKELL Nekhorovich was a molecular biologist, why is he going on about and old Greek myth? HUNT Nekhorovich specialised in recombining DNA molecules. And the myth, Belairiform was a prince who killed the Chimera. A monster with a head of a lion and a tail of a serpent, that plagued the ancient world. I think Nekhorovich created a monster virus in Chimera. And you need an anti virus to kill it called Belairiform. STICKELL That simple, huh? HUNT Why not? AMBROSE'S STUDY - DAY STAMP and AMBROSE are sitting in lounge chairs. AMBROSE has a magnifying glass and sheets of paper with photos on them. STAMP sits quietly. AMBROSE Thirty-seven million pounds. Well that's a promising bid for Nekovich's work. Don't look so worried Hugh, we're half way there. AMBROSE packs a memory card in a case and slots it into an envelope. AMBROSE We'll need that at the track, if we're going to get the other half. AMBROSE hands the envelope to STAMP, who just sits there. AMBROSE Well then, all sorted! STAMP gets up and throws the envelope onto the table and looks at NYAH sleeping in the bed. STAMP Not everything! STAMP closes a slide door. STAMP Why do you think she's really here? AMBROSE From her point of view or mine? STAMP She wasn't exactly gagging for you when she left you six months ago. The question is do you trust her? AMBROSE gets a cigar from a box and closes the lid. AMBROSE Well it considers her timing of course. Getting nicked within a week of the plane going down. Suggestive even boarder line suspicious, but hardly conclusive. AMBROSE has a cigar cutter in his hand and cuts the end of a cigar off. STAMP Well, you thought about it at that rate. AMBROSE blows on the cigar cutter. AMBROSE Tell me Hugh, you don't exactly hang on Nyah's every word and gesture, do you? AMBROSE looks at STAMP's pinkie finger. AMBROSE That's a very ratty nail there. AMBROSE puts STAMP in a lock position. AMBROSE puts the cigar cutter on his pinkie finger. STAMP Sean, please! AMBROSE Suppose she is a Trojan horse sent in by IMF to spy on us. Why shouldn't I have the pleasure of a ride or two? Or you think I can't learn from her more than she can learn from me? STAMP I do! I do! I do! I do! AMBROSE Hugh, you must realise that some of us have pedantic more sex to do with. I may or may not know why she think she's here, but I wanted to take the risk because you, I am gunning for it. AMBROSE cuts a bit of STAMP's finger off. STAMP screams. EXT. RACE COURSE - DAY We see horses racing to the finishing line, people are cheering their betted horses. The horses cross the line, NYAH and AMBROSE are celebrating their win. AMBROSE Darling, you won! NYAH Well, I suppose I did. AMBROSE Who did you pick that time? NYAH Thief in the line. AMBROSE Say no more! AMBROSE sees STAMP. AMBROSE I'm going to grab a drink. Do you still favour those Berlinis? NYAH Mmmm! They kiss. STAMP watches them from a distance. He picks at his bandaged finger. NYAH sits back down in her seat. BAIRD, dressed as a doorman, walks to NYAH. BAIRD Naturally Vain! NYAH Pardon me? BAIRD Naturally Vain, in the fourth. Check her out, she's cute. BAIRD hands her a tips book and leaves. She opens it to see a small earpiece and an instruction saying "Put this in your ear." NYAH looks worried and quickly puts it in her ear. HUNT(VO) You can speck as if I'm right by your side. Cut to HUNT next to track. NYAH(VO) Where are you? HUNT Manet enclosure, just off the track, two O'clock. NYAH stands up and find HUNT with her binoculars. HUNT does the same thing. HUNT(VO) How is it going? NYAH Just like old times! Cut to HUNT. HUNT Just like old times? Cut to NYAH. NYAH Just about! Cut to HUNT. HUNT Tell me who you ran into a Ambrose's. Cut to NYAH. NYAH Near as I can tell, there is about half a dozen other blokes about... Cut to HUNT. NYAH(VO) ...the place, maybe more. Cut to NYAH. NYAH Hugh Stamp, old friend of Sean's, he's the only one I recognise, and a bit of a creep. Cut to HUNT. HUNT We know him. He's over your left shoulder looking at you right now. Cut to NYAH. NYAH has a worried look on her face. Cut to HUNT. NYAH(VO) Ambrose has photos of news papers with money piled on them, thirty-seven million on the London Times, what's that about? HUNT Bids for possible Chimera virus. We see AMBROSE walk into a bar. BAIRD sees him and brings up his binoculars to see what is going on. AMBROSE sits down at a table with a man. BAIRD Ambrose is meeting some bloke in a bar... Cut to STICKELL in a van near the course. BAIRD(VO) ...ginger hair. They're into something. AMBROSE inserts the memory card into a camera. HUNT moves his binoculars to see him. HUNT zooms in on the man. Cut to STICKELL. HUNT(VO) Who is this guy? STICKELL Checking now, Ethan! STICKELL's computer does an analysis on the man and it comes up with a result. STICKELL John McCloy, CEO BioCyte Pharmaceuticals... Cut to HUNT. STICKELL(VO) 1989, acquired BioCyte in a ... Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL ...hostile takeover. HUNT(VO) He was Nekhorovich's boss! STICKELL Right! He worked with him as a research scientist at BioCyte. AMBROSE shows McCLOY something on a camera. STICKELL Ambrose is showing something to... Cut to HUNT. STICKELL(VO) ...McCloy on a digital camera. We get a shot of McCLOY's face. HUNT Whatever McCloy is looking at, he's not to happy about it. McCloy lands the camera back. AMBROSE takes out the memory card. McCLOY leaves the table. Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL Ambrose just pulled the camera's memory card andput it in an envelope. We see MABROSE place the envelope in his jacket. STICKELL(VO) Put it in his inner-left jacket pocket. Cut to HUNT. HUNT Confirm left jacket pocket. Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL Roger that! Cut to HUNT. HUNT sees AMBROSE leave the bar. HUNT Nyah, now Ambrose is on his way back to you. There's an envelope inside his... Cut to NYAH. NYAH ...left jacket pocket. Cut to HUNT. HUNT That's right! Cut to NYAH. NYAH Where do I meet you? HUNT(VO) Betting table twelve, off the paddock. We see AMBROSE a few steps away. Cut to HUNT. HUNT Are you sure you're up to this? Cut to NYAH. NYAH I'll run it through. NYAH turns around to see AMBROSE. NYAH There you are! AMBROSE Who else would you like? NYAH gets close to AMBROSE and takes the envelope from him without him knowing. NYAH Naturally Vain! They're about to close the betting and haven't a bean. AMBROSE Nyah! NYAH grabs a fifty-dollar note from his pocket. NYAH Would you mind terribly? AMBROSE Not at all! But, um, you are going to pay for it and with interest. NYAH I have no doubt. NYAH begins to walk away from AMBROSE. AMBROSE Hold on! NYAH stops. She turns around and drops the envelope into her hand. AMBROSE walks up to her. She puts the envelope in her pants pocket. HUNT watches her with his binoculars. AMBROSE Put down a thousand for me! AMBROSE takes out a small pile of 100's and gives NYAH ten notes. She smiles. NYAH To win? AMBROSE Why else! She walks off. HUNT walks off the enclosure to the betting tables. HUNT Billy, make sure that... Cut to BAIRD. HUNT(VO) ...Nyah isn't followed! BAIRD No worries mate! BAIRD walks off. Cut to HUNT. HUNT Luther, digital camera, ready to transmit, betting table twelve. STICKELL opens up a briefcase and takes a camera. We see NYAH walk through the bar, STAMP is there having a drink, he begins following her. BAIRD is at a doorway, he opens the door for NYAH but slams it on STAMP. BAIRD Oh! Sorry about that, mate! That must of... STAMP slams him up against the wall. STAMP Say again! BAIRD can't speak. STAMP Where ever you are about in future next time, watch you step. You don't know who you might run into. STAMP shows his bandaged finger bleeding. STAMP So where's the loo? BAIRD points. STAMP Thanks, mate! STAMP lets go. BAIRD regains his breath. Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL exits the van and runs to the betting tables with the camera. EXT. BETTING TABLES - DAY People are betting on which horses for the race. NYAH walks into the crowd. She looks around. HUUNT suddenly appears behind her. HUNT How'd you do? NYAH almost turns around. HUNT Don't turn around. NYAH I managed. NYAH turns around. HUNT You turned around. NYAH What are you going to do, spank me? STICKELL arrives to see them face each other. STICKELL coughs to get attention. HUNT takes the camera. STICKELL runs back to the van. NYAH takes out the envelope and hands it to HUNT. She turns back around. HUNT inserts the memory card into the camera. STICKELL arrives at the van and enters. STICKELL (puffing) I'm booted up! Go Ethan! Cut to BETTING TABLES. HUNT starts the transmission of the memory card. HUNT Are you getting this? Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL is typing in codes and begins to receive the transmission. STICKELL Sergei Gradski, twenty hours after exposeure. STICKELL and HUNT view the footage. The footage shows stills of a man getting weak and cells being destroyed. We see GRADSKI's face bleed. STICKELL God! We see BAIRD looking outside a window. we see STAMP enter the crowd. BAIRD Stamp's out of the loo. He coming to the table, heading your way, mate! Cut to HUNT and NYAH. HUNT I want you out of Ambrose's place. NYAH What are you talking about? What did you see? STAMP sees NYAH. BAIRD Okay, he's coming right behind you, Ethan. HUNT (to NYAH) You've done your job, now I want you out ofAustralia. STAMP gets closer. BAIRD Thirty steps. NYAH (to HUNT) How do you suggest I go about it? BAIRD Twenty, nineteen. HUNT (to NYAH) That's so hard, your over whelmed, you need to think it over. BAIRD Fifthteen, fourteen. HUNT puts the card back into the envelope. NYAH hands in the bet. HUNT I want you out of here with in an hour. Give me your earpiece. BAIRD Nine, Ethan, eight! HUNT If you don't get out of here, I'm coming into get you. NYAH drops the envelope, she picks it up. BAIRD Ethan, get out of there. NYAH stands up and turns to see STAMP. STAMP Place your bet, madam? The ticket is made. NYAH Just! Walks back to the pavilion. The horses are released. Everyone is cheering. AMBROSE Come on! Come on! NYAH slips the envelope back into his right pocket jactet instead. Suddenly AMBROSE goes quiet. AMBROSE continues to cheer and their horse wins again. They celebrate again. AMBROSE You picked another winner. INT. AMBROSE'S STUDY - DAY STAMP is already in the room, AMBROSE enters and sits at his computer. STAMP I thought you are out for dinner? AMBROSE Hugh, take care of the Nekhorvich memory card. STAMP Where is it? AMBROSE My jacket pocket. STAMP walks to the jacket. AMBROSE My right jacket pocket. AMBROSE accesses a video file of a BIOCYTE commercial. STAMP finds the memory card. AMBROSE We've got a great opportunity here, I'm not going to waste it. INT. LOBBY - BIOCYTE - NIGHT We see McCLOY exit the elevators and walk past the reception desk. EXT. STREET - NIGHT We see McCLOY enter the street. We also see WALLIS in a car with another man. McCLOY enters his limo. McCLOY(VO) George, take me home! McCLOY's limo leaves, WALLIS begins to tail him. INT. LIMO - NIGHT McCLOY bites on a cigar, but it tastes bad. he presses a button to open the window, but doesn't respond. McCLOY George! Tries the other window. McCLOY George! The driver doesn't respond. McCLOY sits back and sees a newspaper under his briefcase. He picks it up and sees a shocking article. McCLOY What the hell?! McCLOY locks on the privacy screen. McCLOY George! The driver presses the air con button. The vents emit gas. McCLOY sees the gas and struggles. McCLOY George! George! McCLOY coughs continuously and then falls to the seat unconscious. INT. AMBROSE'S HOUSE - NIGHT NYAH is wondering around the dark house. She walks around several rooms, calling AMBROSE. NYAH Sean? She moves quietly. NYAH Sean? She finds that AMBROSE isn't around. She leaves the house and runs further up the compound to a different building. We get a shot of the sentries. She continues for the higher building. She sees a sentry torch coming towards her and goes the other way. She runs through a back way, and suddenly is caught by HUNT, who tells her to quiet. INT. HOSITAL ROOM - NIGHT We see McCLOY wake up in a hospital bed. The bed is surrounded by a plastic sheet. He sees NEKHORVICH on the other side. McCLOY is not breathing well. Everything sounds like a dream. McCLOY What is this? NEKHORVICH A visit from an old friend. McCLOY You crashed in the plane. Your dead! NEKHORVICH Died certainly, but dead is a little extreme. On the other hand, when my colleague, Gradski had your pulse and your blood pressure, he had less than a day to live. You're infected with Chimera, my friend. McCLOY looks worried and presses a button for help. NEKHORVICH No use, my friend. Medical staff wants no part of this. Doctors don't fit the idea of dying any more than anyone else. McCLOY How could I possibly be infected? NEKHORVICH That's what exactly Gradski said, twenty-seven hours before he died. McCLOY You've got the antidote, you miserable bastard. You stole Belairiform, all of it... NEKHORVICH My, my, my! McCLOY ...I need it, I need it now you warned down Russian gipsy. NEKHORVICH And what about Gradski, who you deliberately infected with Chimera. McCLOY How was I to know they needed to be treated with Belairiform within twenty hours. NEKHORVICH By asking me! McCLOY You still don't get it do you. I needed to see just how bad the disease was in the real world, not just the lab. You and geneticists splicing strains of influenza, to create a cure for all influenzas, you also created a disease so terrible than Chimera, the cure would be priceless. I needed Chimera in order to pedal Belairform. It's not that difficult to understand, is it? Look, I've got the virus, you've got the cure. I needed them both. Time wasn't sure if penicillin would knock off every bug in the zoo. Not any more, if I couldn't make money killing those microscopic shits that are out there or you'd help me put one out there that I could make money on. There it is, I've confessed. I John C. McCloy, am in business to make money. Now forget any deal you may have made with that thug, Ambrose, let me treat it and lets go back to work. NEKHORVICH You know, I think it's a little late for tat. Do give my regards to Gradski, if you see him. NEKHORVICH leaves. Gas starts filling inside the plastic barrier around McCLOY. He falls back unconscious. We see a shot of NEKHORVICH exit through a partition. NEKHORVICH Well... NEKHORVICH rips off his face to reveal HUNT. HUNT(NEKHORVICH'S voice) ... I've heard... HUNT rips off a voice changing device. HUNT ... all I need to hear. EXT. AMBROSE'S HOUSE - NIGHT HUNT and NYAH are up against a wall in the dark around AMBROSE's compound. HUNT Nyah! It's imperative that we do nothing to alarm Ambrose. NYAH What? You told me to get out of there as soom as possible. And you're coming here to collect me, I was so relieved. HUNT Shh! Shhh! Listen to me, there's no time to talk. It's critical, absolutely critical, that you do what ever Ambrose says. Do you understand me? NYAH nods. HUNT Don't worry, it'll all be over, very soon. NAYH tries to kiss, but HUNT pulls away. HUNT smiles. HUNT That's a promise. Off you go! NYAH heads back to the compound. HUNT rips off his face to reveal AMBROSE. He rips of a voice changing device. INT. STORAGE ROOM - NIGHT We see HUNT taking off a jacket. He talks to STICKELL. HUNT Luther, we know this much. Nekhorvich gets on a plane to go to the centre for disease control in Atlanta. He's carrying a virus he created, Chimera, and a cure for that virus, Belairiform. Ambrose doesn't have the virus. STICKELL That's why Ambrose needs McCloy! HUNT So we go into BioCyte, kill Chimera, Ambrose has a cure without a disease and we're home free. EXT. AMBROSE'S HOUSE - NIGHT STAMP is also outside with AMBROSE. STAMP You were right! Hunt stung McCloy tonight. So he knows, they'll be going into BioCyte. AMBROSE Good! So we'll know where he'll be, don't we? Well done, Hugh, well done! EXT. McCLOY'S HOUSE - NIGHT McCLOY'S limo reaches the front gate and stops. INT. LIMO - NIGHT We see McCLOY asleep. The driver, who is BAIRD honks his horn. McCLOY wakes up. BAIRD Oi! You're home, mate! Home! McCLOY Where's George, my regular driver? Where is he? BAIRD He's gone home sick, touch of the flu. INT. SHACK - NIGHT HUNT, STICKELL and BAIRD are examining the BioCyte building. We also cut between AMBROSE as well. HUNT Building up and running? STICKELL brings up an island model on the computer. HUNT That's not exactly it? STICKELL Sorry, but this is a BioCyte facility. The storage structure. I'll have it up in a minute. STICKELL brings up the correct model. STICKELL Okay, take a look at this. HUNT Start from the inside out. STICKELL All storage and production of Chimera is done here, in this lab on the forty-second floor. Cut to AMBROSE. AMBROSE Hunt's target will be the Chimera, stored and manufactured at BioCyte on the forty-second floor. If you looked at Hunt's operation history, and I have, he invariably favours misdirection over confrontation. He'll never break into BioCyte from the bottom where security is heaviest. We see a computer model of the lobby morph into the actual lobby. Cut to SHACK. STICKELL No garage entrances, lobby's protected by five guards on rotating patrol. HUNT Not going in from the ground. Show me the atrium. STICKELL shows the atrium on the computer model. STICKELL The atrium, one of a kind. Runs down through the centre of the building. Provides twenty-four hours of natural light via mirrors and daylight storage cells, optimum growing conditions for the virus. Ends in a glass floor which doubles as a part of the labs ceiling. STICKELL shows the louvres move on the model. STICKELL Uh ah! The atrium roof closes at sun down. If the louvres are up for more than forty seconds at night, the civil alarm will be tripped, even those I can't stop. Ethan, we got a total of forty seconds to get you in and the cables out. Cut to AMBROSE. AMBROSE No! Hunt will prefer to enter BioCyte somewhere from the top where security os minimal. He'll engage in some aerobatic insanity before harming a hair on a guard's head. EXT. TOP OF BIOCYTE - CITY - NIGHT BAIRD flies a helicopter to the top of BioCyte. HUNT loads a gun and holsters it. Cut to STICKELL in a VAN on the street. HUNT(VO) Luther, how we doin'? STICKELL Not there yet, Ethan. I'll give you the word. STICKELL works quickly on the computers. Cut to CHOPPER. HUNT Billy, ready to go? BAIRD nods. HUNT secures his cable to the chopper. He lets out some cable to make himself horizontal. BAIRD Okay, make your way in five... Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL I'm not ready yet! The louvres aren't moving! Cut to CHOPPER. BAIRD Come on, Luther, we gotta go! STICKELL(VO) Wait, there's a glitch in the access code. BAIRD Luther, we're out of time. On the count. Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL Please baby, open up! STICKELL types in the last keys of the code. Cut to CHOPPER. BAIRD Five... four... Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL Come on! BAIRD(VO) Three... Cut to CHOPPER. BAIRD Two... one... HUNT I'm going down! Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL Ethan, wait! Cut to CHOPPER. HUNT pushes himself off the chopper and is falling. STICKELL finally opens the louvres and HUNT makes it in. BAIRD laughs. HUNT continues falling down the atrium until he sees the glass floor. HUNT pulls tight on the cable. HUNT is only one metre off the glass, but is visible to a guard, who is turned away. HUNT manoeuvres himself to not be seen. The guard turns and sees nothing. STICKELL(VO) Twenty five... twenty four... twenty three... Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL Twenty two... twenty one... twenty... Cut to ATRIUM. STICKELL(VO) Ethan, you've got nineteen seconds to clear the cable. HUNT flips backwards and at the same time disconnects his cable. He hides against the wall under the window. the guard turns again and sees nothing. Cut to CHOPPER. BAIRD Retracting cable. BAIRD presses a button and the cable begins to go up. Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL is watching the louvres on the on the computer and the clock counting down. Cut to CHOPPER. BAIRD Come on! Come on! The cable is still coming up. Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL Nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two... The louvres begin to close. The cable makes it out, just touching a louvre. The louvres close. Cut to CHOPPER. BAIRD Cable's clear. The chopper evacuates the roof and leaves. Cut to ATRIUM. We see HUNT still against the wall. The guard leaves. HUNT presses a button on his watch. Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL Transponder activated. Reading package and cable clear. Cut to ATRIUM. HUNT walks away from the wall and goes to the glass floor. He pulls out something, which looks like a metallic protractor and places it on the glass. Cut to AMBROSE. AMBROSE He'll breach the lab at the only possible time, wether you break in from the ground or the roof. It's twenty hours one minute when the air filtration generators will cover the sound of Hunt's break in and the rotating guards make the building vulnerable to our break in from below. Cut to ATRIUM. HUNT extends the arm of the device. He gets a notice from STICKELL. STICKELL(VO) Ethan, the generators are about to go active. Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL Just a friendly reminder we'll be out of contact for the eight minutes. STICKELL starts a timer. We see a shot of the generators going active. Cut to ATRIUM. HUNT presses a button on the device and a laser begins to cut the glass in a shape circle. HUNT places a handle and removes the device. He lifts the glass and jumps in. INT. LAB - NIGHT We see HUNT enter the lab. He looks around. Cut to AMBROSE. AMBROSE I'm betting Hunt will destroy Chimera rather than intend to preserve any part of it. He'll have to do it in two places. The incubation room, where the growth vials are kept. We see HUNT walk to the vials. HUNT turns to see the injection guns in another room. AMBROSE(VO) And finally, in the inoculation chamber holding the last Chimera virus in three injection guns. Cut to AMBROSE. AMBROSE He won't be allowed to destroy the virus in those guns. Cut to LAB. HUNT begins to walk to the vials. STICKELL is tracking him on the computer. INT. LOBBY - NIGHT AMBROSE and his men enter the lobby. RECEPTIONIST What's this? You're on time for once? STAMP Not exactly, sport! The RECEPTIONIST is shot and killed. INT. LAB - NIGHT HUNT puts on a gas mask. He plays back McCLOY's voice to a reader. The door opens. HUNT enters. INT. LOBBY - NIGHT We see a reflection of AMBROSE and STAMP of the lobby floor walking the same time. Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL notices the yellow dot, it's NYAH. He contacts BAIRD. STICKELL Billy, I think we have a problem! Nyah's on the wing, up early. Billy, do you copy? Cut to CHOPPER. BAIRD Yeah, I gotcha, Luther! Say exactly where is she? Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL In the building! Cut to CHOPPER. BAIRD Say again, mate! Sounds like you'd said she's in the building? Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL I am, she is! BAIRD(VO) Well, then. She's not likely to be alone then, is she? STICKELL She's in the elevators heading towards Ethan. The question is how many of them. I can't get through to Ethan, not till the generators go off. Cut to CHOPPER. BAIRD When's that? Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL Not for another five and a half minutes. We see HUNT in the incubation room. He walks to the vials and looks at them. There is a keyboard and screens on either side of him. HUNT begins to type. Lasers begin to appear from three guns above the vials. The virus starts to burn up. COMPUTER Chimera in vitro pH and temperature levels outside optimal range (repeats). Chimera Working seep stop pH at critical level. Alert, Chimera stop life threatened. Alert, Chimera stop life terminated. All the charts on the virus begin to go up and the virus is dead in the vials. The screen displays a notice saying it is dead. Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL watches the computer screen. STICKELL Come on, Ethan! Come on! Cut to INCUBATION ROOM. HUNT places a packet of C4 with a remote detonator attached. He sets the bomb. We get another shot of the floor reflection of AMBROSE and STAMP. We see HUNT enter a small cleaning area between rooms. COMPUTER Subject is contaminant free. Zero contaminant factor. HUNT exits the area and enter the inoculation room. He takes of his gas mask. He sees the injection guns ahead of him and walks to them. Cut to CHOPPER. BAIRD Come on! Come on! Cut to STICKELL. On STICKELL's computer screen, we see that the dots get closer and closer. BAIRD(VO) What the hell can we do? STICKELL What can we do! Hope he kills all the bugs before the yellow dot gets to the red one. Cut to INOCULATION ROOM. HUNT walks to the injection guns. He puts his arms into the gloves. He picks up one injection gun, puts on what looks like some sort of silencer, pulls the trigger and the virus is destroyed. He does it to the second gun. When he is about to do the third one, he gets thoughts of NEKHORVICH injecting himself. Suddenly guards enter as well as AMBROSE, and begin to fire bullets at HUNT. He falls, so does the injection gun. He sees it and tries for it but the glass falls from under the gun and it falls to the ground. AMBROSE Get him! The guards go after him, more gun fights continue. HUNT slides down a series of cables. One of the guards picks up the injection gun. HUNT swings around, pulls out a gun and fires at the guard. The guard falls and drops the injection gun. HUNT hides behind some tanks. More guards fire. HUNT spins around while crouching and begins firing at the guards. He hides behind more tanks. Cut to CHOPPER. BAIRD How much longer before you can reach him? Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL We got twenty nine seconds before the generators turn off and Ethan will be back on line. Outside the van, we see a mysterious character place a bomb under the van. STICKELL sees the reflection of the numbers counting down from the water in the gutter. STICKELL Ohhh! STICKELL quickly grabs a laptop. Cut to LAB. More guards come into the lab. HUNT dives and slides to the other side of the room and fires at the same time, the guards fall and die. Cut to STICKELL. STICKELL disconnects all the cables to the laptop. He tries to escape, but his jacket is caught on some loose wire. He finally gets loose and opens the van door. The van explodes. Cut to CHOPPER. BAIRD Luther! Luther! We see the van inflames and we then get a shot of the generators stopping. Cut to LAB. More gun fights erupt. HUNT comes out from hiding and begins firing and moving forward. AMBROSE comes out and fires back. HUNT kills more guards. He sees the injection gun. He goes for it, but misses and hides behind a structure. The guards continue to fire. AMBROSE Hold your fire! Hold your fire, damn it! HUNT reloads his gun, he sees the injection gun on the ground. AMBROSE Well, Hunt. How've you been? HUNT Fighting a bit of a cold. AMBROSE Oh! (laughs) You know, that was the hardest part of wanting to portray you. You're running like an idiot every fifthteen minutes. HUNT reloads another gun. HUNT I thought the hardest part was curing that oppressed need of yours to get your gun off. You were in such a hurry to knock off that seven four seven, you never figured out what Chimera really was. AMBROSE I knew what it was! HUNT Ohh! Then you knew the only way that Nekhorvich could smuggle the live virus was by injecting himself. Using his own bloodstream as a Petrie dish, you knew that while you were knocking him off, destroyed the very thing you came for. HUNT comes out and fires and hides back again. The guards fire back. The bullets from the guns make the injection gun move. AMBROSE STOP! Put a sock in it! And the bloody gun, you'll spread the virus all over the place. HUNT There it is, guys! The last of it! What's the top bid? AMBROSE Why? Can you make me a better offer? HUNT Thirty-seven million pounds? Not really! AMBROSE Oh! Somebody has been slipping you our mail. Come out here you bad girl. NYAH comes out. AMBROSE points his gun at her. HUNT sees her via a mirror. HUNT Sean, she doesn't belong here! Let her go! AMBROSE She wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you, Hunt. AMBROSE tells NYAN to move. He still has his gun pointing at her. AMBROSE From this moment, you are responsible for what happens to her. And if you're looking out for her well being, I suggest you advise her to pick up the injection gun and bring it to me. Ball's in your court, Hunt. Cut to STREET. From the burning van, we see STICKELL come from his hiding spot. He is coughing and parts of his clothes are burnt. Cut to LAB. STICKELL(VO) Nyah's in the building. Do you copy? HUNT Thank you! HUNT turns to see NYAH standing in front of the injection gun. HUNT How do you know he won't shoot you the minutes hes got it? AMBROSE I can't hold Nyah responsible for her actions, you know women make. Like monkeys they are, won't let go of the last branch till they get a grip on the next. NYAH turns. AMBROSE Get it Nyah. I'll cover you. NYAH looks at HUNT and then the injection gun. She slowly picks it up. AMBROSE I am waiting! HUNT cocks the hammer on his gun. NYAH Things haven't exactly worked out the way they thought they would, Ethan. HUNT shakes his head. NYAH Sorry! NYAH gets the injection gun, points it to her arm and pulls the trigger. HUNT and AMBROSE are shocked. She drops the empty injection gun. AMBROSE Bitch! HUNT starts a count down on his watch. NYAH Your not gonna shoot me Sean. Not this bitch, because she's worth thirty-seven million pounds. HUNT pulls out a small remote. He presses it and pushes NYAH out of the way. The incubation room explodes. Security systems and alarms go off. More guards enter the room. Another gun fight starts. HUNT and NYAH hide behind some tanks. HUNT What were you think you were doing? NYAH I wasn't thinking. Just trying to stop you from getting hurt, that's all. HUNT You who don't have a conscience. NYAH I guessed I lied! Guards come and HUNT shoots them down. AMBROSE and his men are also killing the excess guards. NYAH You can't get us both out of here? HUNT shakes his head. NYAH brings HUNT's hand with the gun and points it to her chest. NYAH I'm infected with Chimera. You know you don't have a choice. Do it! Do it, now! HUNT pulls his gun back and rips a bomb from his pack and throws it to a wall. HUNT We've got nineteen hours and fifty eight minutes. I'll get Belairiform into your system before them. HUNT shoots the bomb. The wall explodes. HUNT Just stay alive. I'm not going to lose you. HUNT runs and kills more guards. He jumps out of the hole male in the wall. AMBROSE and STAMP go after him. HUNT does a double somersault in the air and releases the parachute. AMBROSE checks the wall and can't see HUNT. He walks back and gives an angry look to NYAH. EXT. DARLING HARBOUR - DAY We see two cars drive and stop. There are lots of people walking around. INT. FIRST CAR - DAY AMBROSE turns to NYAH and shows the Belairiform in a metallic canister. AMBROSE Fell like pleading for your life? NYAH slaps AMBROSE on the face. AMBROSE Well then, how about dying, so you cake me a lot of money. AMBROSE exits the car and turns back. He talks to NYAH through the window. AMBROSE In just a few hours time, you can be assured of going down in history as a typhoid miliaria of Oz. G'day. AMBROSE leaves. EXT. BEACH & ROCKY AREA - DAY STICKELL, HUNT and BAIRD walk to the helicopter. BAIRD gives HUNT a gun and loads it. STICKELL There's not a chance in locating Nyah, until I can access the satellite. And there's not a chance in doing that until I get this computer fixed and that's taking a while. How much time does she have left? HUNT Not long. But whatever happens, Nyah will take care of Nyah. BAIRD What do you mean? HUNT If we don't get the Belairiform. Nyah will kill herself. So, first things first. They pack their gear into the helicopter. INT. ROOM - BIOCYTE ISLAND BASE - DAY We see McCLOY walk around the room impatiently. EXT. STREET - DAY We see AMBROSE and several others in three cars heading to the island base. We pan around to see HUNT climbing a rock face. Cut to STICKELL and BAIRD. STICKELL and BAIRD are sitting in the helicopter. The two look from afar with binoculars and other gear. EXT. BASE - DAY We see the cars enter the island base. Cut to STICKELL and BAIRD. BAIRD Ethan, Ambrose and his tam have arrived over the bridge and... Cut to HUNT BAIRD(VO) ...Nyah's not with him, mate! HUNT Copy that! HUNT continues climbing. HUNT makes it to the top and peeps over the top. BAIRD(VO) You alright, mate? Looks like pretty heavy security from here. What's it look like from there? HUNT sees a guard walk by. HUNT Risky! HUNT gets up and runs up behind a guard. He does some martial arts moves on the guard, and in doing so, killing him. HUNT rolls the guard into the water. INT. ROOM - BASE - DAY AMBROSE and his men enter the room. McCLOY turns around. WALLIS sets up a laptop. EXT. BASE - DAY HUNT runs, and does a dive roll. He opens a grate, gets in and closes it. The guard turns around. INT. ROOM - DAY AMBROSE places the Belairiform and a blood sample canisters on a table. A SCIENTIST picks up the canisters. INT. HALLWAY - DAY We see a guard walk through the hallway. The camera pans up to see HUNT. HUNT drops, spins the guard with his legs and hits the guard in the chest. Pigeons begin to flap. HUNT drags the body. INT. ROOM ENTRANCE - DAY One of the guards is trying to contact another. GUARD Simon! Simon! We see HUNT drag the body into a separate room. GUARD Stay here!

HALLWAY - DAY HUNT contacts STICKELL via his ear piece. HUNT Breaching structure, ten O'clock reading. HUNT continues going forward. INT ROOM - DAY The computer beeps. SCIENTIST It's a DNA match. The blood's loaded with Chimera. The SCIENTIST looks through the scope and sees small amounts of Belairiform and the blood sample mixing. The computer beeps again. SCIENTIST And they certainly have Belairiform. McCLOY Well then, you've got the virus and the anti-virus, which means I've got thirty million for you. AMBROSE Not exactly! We don't want just your cash. McCLOY What do you want? AMBROSE Stock, Mr. McCloy. Stock options to be a little more precise. AMBROSE sits down in a chair and makes a call on his mobile. AMBROSE Cut her loose, right in the centre of town. The more crowd, the better. WALLIS smiles. INT. HALLWAY - DAY HUNT continues through the base. STICKELL(VO) Ethan, just picked up an Ambrose call. Nyah's been dropped off. I think she still alive. HUNT Where is she? STICKELL(VO) Somewhere in Sydney. HUNT sees a guard and hides in a cell. The guard goes by the cell entrance and HUNT kicks the guard into the wall. He does more moves and kills the guard. HUNT Somewhere is Sydney? Gotta hardened target? STICKELL(VO) I can't until I get the GPS up on our computer. It's still down. HUNT The clock is ticking. HUNT continues on. INT. ROOM - BASE - DAY AMBROSE How quickly can you manufacture more of the anti- virus? McCLOY No time at all! Since I got it! AMBROSE Good! BioCyte stock is just a few weeks away from going through the roof! McCLOY What are you talking about? AMBROSE An outbreak of Chimera. McCLOY Where? AMBROSE Down town Sydney, for a start. You create the supply, McCloy, we've just created the demand. Three million people in Sydney and seventeen million people in Australia are going to need Belairiform within the next few days. Not to mention the rest of the world. Now, this is how it's going to work. Wallis, shares are standing are... WALLIS Ninety three point four million. AMBROSE Which means, Mr. McCLOY, we need to get our hands on 480,000 options. We'll borrow your thirty million to buy those options. Your stock has never sold above thirty-one dollars a share. When your stock goes north over two hundred, which it will, those options will be worth billions and I will own fifty one percent of BioCyte. McCLOY This is outrageous. I will not let you take control of my company. AMBROSE Sit down! McCLOY sits down. INT. HALLWAY - BASE - DAY HUNT walks to the ROOM ENTRANCE. Birds fly out which catches a guard's attention. HUNT hides. The guard investigates. HUNT comes out, running. When he gets closer to the guard, he does a somersault kick, which knocks the guard down. He sees the entrance.

STAMP I'm afraid he has no choice. I believe I broke his jaw. AMBROSE Stamp, I'm impressed. (to HUNT) Right, we don't have a lot of time so whatever you got to say, say it now! How about a big smile? HUNT continues to mumble. AMBROSE No?! McCLOY What are you doing? AMBROSE points his gun at McCLOY. AMBROSE Get down on your knees! McCLOY gets down. AMBROSE Now, this is what is known as "getting your gun off". AMBROSE points his gun and fires a whole magazine at HUNT. He falls and dies.

SWANBECK But you were under specific instructions, Mr. Hunt, to bring back a living sample of the Chimera virus. I'll be very interested to know how, after you managed it's recovery, it subsequently got destroyed. HUNT By fire. It's the best way, really! SWANBECK Ohhh! Well Mr. Hunt, as for Miss Hall and enlight of her efforts, her criminal record will be expunged, wiped out. I'm assuming you approve? HUNT I do. SWANBECK Where is she now by the way? Any ideas?

FADE OUT: END CREDITS -FACTS- 1- The Biocyte building is actually a normal office block. The louvres don't exist, neither does the atrium. It's all blue screen work. Sorry to disappoint you! 2- The island base where STAMP dies, is actually a good fishing spot if you happen to live around the area. 3- G'day is actually short of 'Good Day'. It's an Australian term.
