1· EXT. RUSSIA — NIGHT
We open on a GUARD sitting in front of a sentry post. He is
wearing a heavy fur hat that covers his ears and a military-
jacket. Behind him is a list of instructions (in Russian).
He ‘sucks in a cigarette as though he’s a drowning man lookin
for oxygen. A CAR comes to a stop by the sentry post, the,
guard looks, asks a couple of questions and is given an
-envelope which he quickly examines, he then attempts to stick
his head in the car. A gun barrel is promptly stuck in his
face and a couple of angry words emanate from the back, the
guard jumps back and quickly raises the barrier.
This next section will be intercut with the credit sequence.
2 INT. BACK OF RUSSIAN CAR — NIGHT
On the back seat is FRANKY FOUR -FINGERS, (New York street
wise Jew) who is clutching a fancy looking briefcase which
is handcuffed to his wrist. He is flanked by TWO RUSSIAN
HOODS. This next section will be subtitled.
FRANKY FOUR FINGERS
How much further do we have to go?
Just then the car comes to a standstill. The window is wound
down and a gun barrel is stuck through. The RUSSIAN DRIVER
looks dramatically calm.
Pass him the money.
Franky hesitates for a second.
Franky you know you have no choice.
So please can we get on with it?
Franky knows discussion is futile. He flips the case open
and pulls out a transparent plastic bag full of American
dollars. The package is pulled out of the window, the driver
doesn’t move, we dissolve for a passage of time, the anxiety
is more than obvious, but Four Fingers can do nothing. All
of a sudden a package comes through the window and the car
speeds off without waiting for an inspection of the delivery.
Franky opens the package and he reveals a stone the size of
a fist. He shines a torch onto it and puts a stone inspectin
monocle to his eye. He’s satisfied.

Franky Four Fingers opens a fancy case, presses a hidden
catch, this reveals a second wall within the case, he then
carefully places the stone within this secret compartment
and firmly closes the case. The Russian next to him is
playing with a revolver, he spins the chamber.

Franky takes the card looks at it and repeats the name.

We are in the back room of an amusement arcade and can hear
fruit machines beeping in the distance. Meet BORIS THE BLADE
and TOMMY who is toying with a heavy-looking revolver.
It’s a bit heavy isn’t it Boris?
Heavy is good. Heavy is reliable.
If it doesn’t work you can hit him
Tommy practices a couple of gun slinging maneuvers. He’s
impressed. At that moment the door opens and in walks a MAN
carrying two heavy sacks of coins. He’s a rough looking
bastard, he’s massive, and extremely ugly. Meet GORGEOUS
George looks at the weapon and can see that he’s interrupting.
Sorry Tommy, I hope that I am not
Oh of course you’re not interrupting
Gorgeous, I put the do not disturb
sign on the door because I wanted
you to join us.
George isn’t too bright
What are you doing Tommy?
I am baking a cake Gorgeous, not
that i t ‘ s any of your business. Put
the takings down, and be a good chap.
-. George puts down the coins. Tommy implies he should leave.
Gorgeous isn’t too bright and continues to stand there looking
stupid. Tommy goes to turn around but can see that he hasn’t
left, so he turns back,
Is there anything else Gorgeous, a
cup of tea perhaps? No? Well in
that could you kindly fuck off and
shut the door behind you?
Tommy turns round to Boris with a slight shake of his head.
Not too bright but he hits like a
train. OK I ‘ l l take it. You’re a
gambling man Boris, so I’ll toss you
for it. Heads it’s mine, tails I’ll

7 EX.T. BACK ALLEY MAKESHIFT BOXING RING — DAY
BRICK TOP (aka MR MCLEAN) is a heavy looking fella. He is
observing a giant of a man, BOMBER HARRIS, boxing a sparring
Two hundred and sixty pounds, that’s

He’s talking to LIAM and GARY, a couple of employees.
BRICK TOP (CONT’D)

Oh no Mr Mclean, he looks great.

mood for asking questions, get busy
lads, or it’s feeding time, oink,

Liam takes a step to the side and moves his eyes in a sideways
action implying the guilt lies with Gary. Gary catches this
and opens his mouth to protest. One of Brick Tops’s henchmen,
ERROL, sticks a belt in there as quick as it opens and smashes
a bar across Gary’s legs, he buckles. The henchman man pulls
out a plastic bag and a roll of tape.

again. Brick Top finds more interest in his fighter.

8 EXT. ANOTHER BACK ALLEY MAKESHIFT BOXING RING – – DAY
…And the whip pan shot takes us into this boxing ring.
Meet TURKISH, he is Tommy’s partner. Turkish is older and
wiser than Tommy, they are both watching Gorgeous go through
his paces. Gorgeous George is head butting a heavy punch
bag. The sound that emanates is disturbing, and Tommy is
Is he allowed to do that?
Turkish is drinking milk from a bottle
It’s an unlicensed boxing match Tommy,
not a tickling competition. These
lads are out to hurt each other.
Oi Turkish, can I have a drink?
Turkish looks over his shoulder and then points to himself
What do I look like to you George, a
fuckin water boy?
Turkish looks at the WATER BOY.
Oi son, look lively.
He turns .back to Tommy.
Look at it.
He turns to see the remnants of a caravan where they keep
the training gear and administration for the fights
How am I supposed to run this thing
from that? We gonna need a proper
He looks at the caravan again and sighs, it is quite pitiful
I want a new one Tommy and you ‘re
going to buy it for me.
What’s wrong with this one?
Turning back to Tommy and ascending the steps in to his “I
have seen better days” caravan, TURKISH’S foot goes through
one of the stairs and the.door comes off at the hinges as he
tries to open it.
Oh nothing Tommy, it’s tip top, it’s
just I am not sure about the colour.
He passes him a piece of paper
Here it’s all arranged. You just
gotta pick it up. Here’s an address.
Tommy looks at the address and frowns.
I t ‘ s that campsite.
That’s right, you’re buying a caravan,
caravans live in campsites.
They aren’t pikey are they?
I don’t know what they are, all I
know is they have a caravan, and we
want a Caravan.
I hope they’re not pikies. I hate

He is distracted by the bulge in Tommy’s trouser front.
Fuck me, hold tight, what’s that?
It’s my Gucci belt, Turkish.
Pointing quite clearly at the gun.
No Tommy, there’s a gun in your
trousers. What is a gun doing in
It’s for protection.
Protection from what, the Germans?

DOUG THE HEAD is an east London Jew, about forty five, almost
completely bald and proud of it, he sits with his two twin
daughters ALEX and SUSI – they look like Prada models but as
soon as they open their mouths, it’s clear that they aren’t,
they have extremely rough London accents. Doug is on the
phone to Hands.
I am playing the game Hands. That’s
what I ‘ l l give ya.
Hands shakes his head in disbelief.
You gotta haggle fairly Doug,
otherwise it’ll make your hair fall
out you’ll see. .
You know I won’t buy poop.
He isn’t selling poop.
Listen if the stones are kosher then
I’ll by em. Now I gotta business, to

You’re Jewish Dad.
Yes. I was last time·I looked.
Well you can’t eat shell fish, Dad,

What persuasion myself or the prawns
belongs to is not the issue, the
issue is how a fuckin shrimp managed
to sneak in to’ my sandwich.
He throws the half eaten sandwich out the window.
12 EXT. STREET OUTSIDE BOOKIES — DAY
We cut to an enormous and frightening looking dog sniffing
the half eaten prawn sandwich, before he is yanked away by
his master. The dog is a lively young thing. We raise the
camera to see the man that is walking it. Meet VINNY. Vinny
is a very large black man – the size is due to dumplings not
dumbbells. He .stops outside a shop. We see it clearly.
I t ‘ s a pawnbrokers.

Vinny enters the pawn shop.
13 INT. PAWN BROKERS — DAY
Meet SOL, who’s behind the counter, Vinny’s partner in the
pawn shop. He’s concentrating on the deal at hand with BAD
BOY LINCOLN and has a stone-inspecting monocle to his eye.
Alright Sol, Lincoln.
They are in deep discussion and only Lincoln responds.

Zirconias are artificial diamonds,

I am saying it’s worth fuck all.
Lincoln’s face drops

Sol looks round properly at Vin and can see that he’s
accompanied by a dog. ‘
What’s that Vince?
Err, it’s a dog Sol.
Where do you think you’re going with
that Vince?. You can’t bring that
thing in here.
It’s in here, what’s the problem,
it’s only a dog.
I know full fucking well what it is
Vin. Where did you get it?
Those gypsies, they threw it in with
a load of moody gold.
Sol considers this and decides it can’t be all bad.
It better not be dangerous.

Yes, it fucking does Vin. If it so
much as farts it’s out.

Calm down, we are buying and then we
Oh you bastard, I hate fuckin pikies.
They arrive in the camp site and the car is immediately
surrounded by KIDS. The kids (most of whom are on bikes)
speak with a sort of Anglo-Irish mix that sounds as rough as
the kids look. ,
That’s a flash car Mister.
Not as flash as your bike though is
Who you looking for?

hard but friendly face (when he smiles). He’s covered in
grease and facial hair, and his trousers are done up with
string. But he’s wearing a Cartier watch and Gucci shoes,
and a large gold identity bracelet. This is MICKY O’NEILL.
What are you doing Paul? Get out of

of his fists. Hey Mum, come and
look at the size of this fella.
The kids start to feel his arms. Gorgeous George plays the
game and raises the kids on his biceps. Micky’s MUM comes
out to see.
Would you look at the strength of

15 INT. TYRONE’S CAR
We open on Vinny’s dog, now sitting in a car, it’s breathing
heavily and doesn’t look well, and Sol doesn’t see the funny
side of the dog sitting next to him. The man driving is
called TYRONE: he’s a white guy who thinks he’s black. Vin
is also in the car.
I don’t want him dribbling on my ,
Give him another of those biscuits.
They shut him up.

Tyrone turns round to complain, and narrowly misses a car.
Hey watch the road! Fuck me, you

No Vin, he can’t tell the difference
between a steering wheel and a man

Sol gives the dog another biscuit.
Don’t you worry about me, jus worry

The machine starts. They do the windows up and that point
the dog lets out a fart. The water starts to hit the
windshield so they can’t undo the windows. There is more an
atmosphere of disbelief than of concrete anger.
16 EXT. CARAVAN CAMP SITE
Gorgeous George fastens the caravan to the back of their
Land Rover and pulls away. They wave at Micky and he

Look, I have helped ya as much as I

There is a silence for a while. The atmosphere has gone
more than frosty and a few more gypsies are hanging around.
It was only a question of time before
you got some attention. Nobody brings
a fella the size of you unless they
are trying to say something without

20 INT. HORSE BOX, PIKEY CAMP — DAY
The two fighters start pacing. It looks a bit ridiculous,
Micky is dwarfed by comparison. Gorgeous George takes a
swipe: it was an .impressive punch, but Micky is a quick littl
bastard and sidesteps. Micky does nothing to retaliate; his
hands are still by his,side.
Gorgeous George lunges out and grabs Micky by the throat and
groin, picks him up like a sack of spuds and throws him
against the car door. All eyes are on Micky for a second or
two, then he rises and appears little bothered by this, he
gets up brushes himself off and starts to pace again, hardly
even looking at the big man.
You want to stay down my friend, I
promise you, you want to stay down.
Micky ignores this and continues to pace, the big fella grabs
him and puts him in a headlock and charges him into the stable
door. There is a terrible noise.
GORGEOUS GEORGE (CONT’D)
Now you fucking stay down boy or you
won’t be coming up next time.
It appears as though this is going to get messy and any humour
that might have been around has now evaporated. Micky raises
his head there is still no damage to speak of. All of a
sudden he starts jumping up and down like he’s warming up,
throwing a few shadow punches, taking off his shirt. This
reveals a heavily tattooed and scarred torso, and underneath
these embellishments is a physique that warrants some respect.
GORGEOUS GEORGE (CONT’D)
This is sick. I am outta here.
You’re not going anywhere my friend.
You stay until the job is done.
Micky starts pacing, and throwing out a couple of shadow
punches with his back to Gorgeous George, he still hasn’t
really acknowledged his opponent. Gorgeous George moves in
for the coup de grace, Micky spins on his feet and catches
the big man under the jaw.
CUT TO BLACK

Bookies? What you betting on?
FRANKY FOUR FINGERS
Some guy called Bomber Harris.
The unlicensed boxer? You know

Doug raises his eyebrows
You get busy Franky. Put a couple

23 INT. PIKEY ENCAMPMENT — DAY
What do you say?
How much you going to pay us?
I lose more than that running for
the bus. I ‘ l l do it for a caravan.
No a caravan.
You are sitting in one if that makes
things easier. I want a top caravan.
It was us that wanted a caravan.-
Anyway what’s wrong with this one?
It’s not for me, it ‘ s for me Mum.
24 INT. DOUG’S OFFICE — MORNING
Doug is on the phone to Hands.
I overpaid Hands, I want you to
recognize charity when i t ‘ s offered.
Do shut up, where is he now?
I don’t know Hands, I ‘ m not his
mother. But I am seeing him later.
He wants cash so he’s coming back
after he has been to a fight.
There is a serious expression of alarm on Hands’s face – the
camera crashes in.
What do you mean a fight, you mean a
boxing match? Is there gambling
I t ‘ s a boxing match Hands.
Hands isn’t happy.
Did he have a case with him?
And he’s gone gambling? That’s Franky
“I have a problem with gambling”
fuckin Four Fingers, you are talking
What am I, telepathic?
Franky is good at buying stones Doug
but he’s a fuckin liability when it
comes to gambling. That has cost
- So in turn rit’ s cost him. He
gets distracted and chopping off a
digit seems to focus his attention.
24 CONTINUED: ( 2 )
How much can he lose?
Hands pulls a face like “what kind of a stupid question is
that?” He them starts to shout
I ‘ l l not forgive you Doug, I am coming
over, get me that car.
The phone is slammed down.
25 EXT. AIRPLANE —
We see the undercarriage of Concorde taking off.
26 INT. BRICK TOP’S PUB —
Tommy and Turkish walk into a pub and approach the BARMAN.
They reach the bar. . .
We are here to see Brick Top.
The barman looks them up and down a bit. He’s not doing
I am very busy at the moment.
I am not asking you to break sweat,
. I am asking you to call Brick Top.
Never heard of him.
. … : TURKISH :
Well make a call and see if someone
else has. Say it’s Turkish.
The barman looks bothered by the fact he has to move but
wanders off. Turkish looks at the pool table.
You know what he’s done to people on
that pool table?
They both give the table an eyeball.
What, potted more balls than any
other player? What else can you do
to people on a pool table?
Quite a fuckin lot if you nail ’em
TWO HEAVY LOOKING FELLAS appear out of the woodwork.
The heavy fella opens up the bar and beckons Turkish and
Tommy through. They go through another door and the corridor
turns into a mass of dogs barking, snarling ‘and whining in
cages. The mood is sinister..they reach another door, they
open up and we are introduced to a dog fight. A load of
HEAVY GEEZERS are commenting on the performance of the dogs,
one dog is being carried out by a single leg, it’s covered
in blood. Another dog is left in the ring, it too is covered
in blood but it’s survived.
They can charm the paint off walls
27 INT. BACK OF PUB – DOG FIGHT — NIGHT
A circle of blunt faces are exchanging money with one another
A few faces turn round to examine Tommy and Turkish, they
frown slightly but carry on about their business once they
see they are accompanied by the muscle.
The heavy walks over to Brick Top. The heavy taps him on
the shoulder and whispers. He acknowledges, and gives his
drink to the heavy. He walks over. There is a cage next to
Brick Top which has a pit bull in, and Brick Top who is
carrying a cane pokes it through the cage doors. The dog
Look mean now you hairy fucker won’t
He looks at the appalled faces of Turkish and Tommy.
BRICK TOP (CONT’D)
Shits itself when you put it in the
ring, but poke .it with a stick and
watch his bollocks grow. You like a
dog fight, Turkish?
I like my dog to growl at the post
Gorgeous ready for tonight?
We don’c have a Gorgeous anymore.
Brick Top turns round and indicates that he would like the
noise around him to drop. It does marginally.
You’re going to have to repeat that.
We have lost Gorgeous George.
Brick Top turns round again at the already subdued crowd, he
doesn’t raise his voice but the crowd reacts.
I said keep the noise down.. . .
A tangible silence between the men reflects Brick Top’s
BRICK TOP (CONT’D)
Well, where did you lose him? He
isn’t a set of fuckin car keys is
he? And it’s not as though he is
inconfuckinspicuous is it?
I am not backing out.
You can bet your bollocks to a barn
dance you’re not backing out.
27 CONTINUED: .(2)
We are changing the fighter.
Brick Top wasn’t expecting anything out of Tommy.
Oh fuck me your lady friend has got
a voice. And who might you be
changing him to, sweetheart?
You won’t know him.
Pause: a look of you’re kidding comes over his face.
Are you taking the piss?
No, there was an accident.
I’ll show you a fuckin accident.
You’ve still got your fight.
No, I lose all bets at the bookies.
You can’t change fighters at the
last minute, so no, I don’t have my
fight do I, you fuckin prat!
You could take bets at the fight.
Put a lead on her Turkish, Before
she gets bitten.
BRICK TOP (CONT’D)
Make sure your man goes down in the
fourth. You’re on thin fuckin ice
my pedigree chums and I’ll be there
if it breaks.
28 EXT. BOOKIES
The black guys pull up in’Tyrone’s car outside the bookies
Vin is playing with the dog in the back.
I am not happy about that dog Vin,
you can’t bring a dog on a job.
You can’t leave him on his own, not
to begin with, he gets homesick.
Homesick, for fucks sake.
He does. If he gets the chance he
runs back to the gypsies’ campsite.
Ohh shut up, how can he find it?
I don’t know Sol, I am not a dog.
Ask him. It’ s like he’s got a fuckin
homing beacon. Give him the chance
and he’s off.
You’re going soft Vin? Here pass me
Vin throws a sandwich to Sol but the dog catches it whilst
i t ‘ s in flight and swallows it in one gulp.
Jessssus, he didn’t even chew it.
The car has stopped.
What have you stopped here for?
What’s wrong with that space?
It’s too tight.
What are you talking about, tight?
You could land a jumbo fuckin jet in
Leave him alone, he’s a natural.
Tyrone gets a little over-excited with the accelerator and
reverses with a crashing sound into the rear of the van behin
them (ie it:s parked back to back with them).
28 CONTINUED: ( 2 )
A natural fuckin idiot. Tyrone,
what have you done?
Look, you hassle me, see what happens.
Tyrone makes to move the van forward again.
Well don’t move it now, otherwise
people will see the damage. What
did you do that for? ^
I didn’t see it there.
Eh? It’s a four ton truck. It’ s
not as though i t ‘ s a ferret fuckin a
flea is it?
It was at a funny angle.
Vin is confused as to this last statement.
Funny angle? It was behind you
Tyrone, whenever you reverse things
come from behind you. I am not happy
– The dog starts whining.
Give him something to shut him up.
Sol throws a plastic squeaky dog ball that was in the front.
The dog grabs in and swallows it in one gulp. The brothers
look on in shock.
He can’t swallow a whole ball.
He swallowed it.
The dog looks up having completed the task. Vin who looks
quite alarmed holds the dog by the ribs and squeezes, there
is a squeak.
29 EXT. AIRPORT. —
Doug and Alex are waiting to pick- up Hands.
Did you get Hands that car?
I got him one like it.
Doug is in shock.
What do you mean one like it?
I got him the Volante.
What did I say? What exactly did I
You said get him the Vantage.
That’s right, I clearly said get him
the Vantage. So why did you get the
Because they look the same.
The Septuagint scholars mistranslated
the Hebrew word for “young woman” in
to the Greek word for “virgin”,
because they thought they looked the
same, coming up with the prophecy
“behold a virgin shall conceive and
bear a son”. But there is a world
of difference between a virgin and a
young woman like there is between a
Volante and a fuckin Vantage.
‘.Pause: she thinks about this.
Are you saying that the fact that
your cousin Hands is driving a Valiant
instead of a Vantage is a profound a
mistake as a whole religion?
Yes I fuckin am!
29 CONTINUED ·
Cars are his religion. He can drive
a Valiant in the States but I can’t
drive a Vantage because they won’t
tolerate the emissions. Well, it’s
too late now, that’s Concorde.
SHOT OF CONCORDE’S WHEELS TOUCHING DOWN
30 EXT. AIRPORT — DAY
Hands and his sidekick Rosebud are coming out of the sliding
glass doors towards Doug who’s now standing by the car with
his arms crossed. Hands is quite clearly looking for a car.
How about a hug for your old cousin
He stops looking for his car and focuses on Doug.
Fuck off you fat bald bastard – and
where’s my car?
31 EXT. BOOKIES
The black guys are sitting in the car still. The occasional
squeak comes from the dog.
How am I going to get it out?
He’ll probably cough it up.
Do you think he’ll be alright?
What are we waiting for?
We are waiting for a man carrying a

Russian the case and we keep the
He rubs his fingers symbolically together
What’s in the case?
Sol turns round to talk to Tyrone.
Fuckin ‘ell Tyrone you ask a lot of
questions. You concentrate on the
He turns back just as a MAN is stepping into the bookies: he
is carrying a case.
Shit, was that him?
Don’t ask me, you’re the one supposed
to keep an eye on it. How many
fingers did he have?
Are you serious? I am sorry but I
couldn’t get the binoculars out in
Well let’s not stand on ceremony,
let’s start the show.
They get out of the van and go up to the bookies, leaving
Tyrone in the van. There’s a double set of glass doors.
Sol pushes them open, and Vinny walks in first, while Sol
hangs back with the shotgun.
32 INT. BOOKIES — DAY
Inside is the MAN with the case, busy filling in a slip, and
TWO CLERKS behind the betting counter. Vinny doesn’t mince
around and goes straight to the counter, where the HEAD CLERK
PAULINE, comes up to help.
Yes sir, how can I help?
You can start by giving me all your
Does Sir know who this bookies belongs
It. belongs to me now.
Vinny then leans over the counter to get menacing. Pauline
looks more than a little concerned
If you know what’s good for…
He is cut short, as Pauline triggers a button under the
counter and a security screen comes flying up at a very rapid
rate of knots protecting all the counters. This has the
unfortunate consequence of taking Vinny with it. Poor Vin
is shot straight to the ceiling, all we can see is half a
body and his desperately searching for ground legs. Needless
to say this leaves Sol in a bit of a bewildered state. He’s
looking the wrong way at the critical moment and is left
wondering what happened, not having seen Vince impaled on
the ceiling. Sol extracts the enormous shotgun.
Vi nce ? Vince??
He spins round looking for his colleague. A muffled noise
tells him to look up. ,
SOL (CONT’D) .
What are you doing Vince? And what
the fuck are you doing up there?
A few groans emanate from the other side of the counter.
Sol panics some more, and decides that emergency action is
called for. .
I have got your man out here. If
you don’t put down the screen I’ll
blow his fucking head off! You hear
PAULINE ( O . S . )
I don’t care, you can do what you
like he’s not related to me.
You think you can try me?
32 CONTINUED: (2.)
Sol raises the gun and fires into the side .of- the wall.
There’s an enormous explosion and a clear hole is made in
the side of the wall. The powerful kick from the gun also
makes Sol momentarily airborne.
33 EXT. BLACK GUYS’ VAN — DAY
We see Tyrone grimace at the sound of the shotgun.
34 INT. BOOKIES — DAY
Sol pulls himself together and marches up to the hole in the
wall that the shot created and pokes the gun through.
Drop the screen now! You just seen
what it did to this wall so think
what it could do to you.
Pauline knows she has lost this one and looks genuinely
(to the other clerk)
. Do it. . . . I said do it.
The screen comes down with a thud. This means that Vince
comes down with just as serious a thud. He lets out another
How you doing Vince?
A weakened voice retorts.
How do I look like I am doing you
fucking idiot? I would be doing a
lot better if you would stop using
Consoled that his colleague is not dead it’s back to business
for Sol. He raises the gun and pulls his fiercest face.
Now fill this bag. . . ‘ . – . –
All bets are off.
I am not here to make a fuckin bet.
All bets are off.
Are you fuckin stupid? I don’t care
if the fuckin bets are off. I want…
If all bets are off then there can’t
be any money, can there?
There is a pause. Sol knows he’s fucked. She points to a
black board that clearly states “ALL BETS ARE OFF”
I ain’t buying that.
I ain’t fuckin selling it, it’s a
fact! . ”.
Well, what have you got?
Nothing, I mean we got a few coins
but no notes.
Can we just get out of here please.
I am not feeling too funny.
Sol’s temper does have a limit.
Well I am not feeling too fucking
funny myself, let me tell you!
Sol points at the man on the floor who is carrying the case.
Let me see your hands.
The man holds his hands up. He has got a perfect set of
five fingers on both hands. Sol puts his head in his hands.
Pauline and the other clerk put two bags full of coins on
the counter. Sol picks them up and frowns, he’s not happy
with a bag full of change. He puts his gun down and starts
to rifle through the bag. Pauline can see Vinny’s pistol on
the counter, dropped after his encounter with the screen.
34 CONTINUED: (2.)
Copper coins? What do you mean copper
Pauline sees her opportunity and grabs the pistol. Sol .goes
for it too, but he’s beaten to it. Sol ducks, pulling Vince
with him, Pauline lets out a series of shots in their
direction, Sol counter blasts over the top of the counter.
The security screen comes flying back up.
Get me out of here now Sol.
Vinny does sound convincingly desperate.
We’re going Vin.
He grabs the bag of copper coins, grabs Vince and marches
towards the double’doors. They open the first set and then
they try to open the second. They push the door nothing
happens. There is no going back. Sol starts to kick the
glass door, but it doesn’t budge. With panic rising swiftly,
Sol doesn’t fuck around he takes aim with the handgun and
fires, the bullet shatters the glass but it doesn’t break
through, and the bullet now ricochets off both glass doors
shattering bullet-proof glass all around them. Vinny’s panic
filled eyes attempt to follow its trajectory. Sol is unaware
of the ricochet and before Vin has time to warn him, Sol
fires another bullet. Now he observes the problem and waits
for the inevitable. The bullet tears through the bag of
coins, which then empties its contents at Vin’s and Sol’s
feet. Eventually the bullet hits poor Vince in the thigh.
Sol sinks to the floor, he has given up. Amongst the yells
emanating from Vince we can hear Sol’s pathetic and desperate
No security, eh?
At that point Tyrone appears and pushes the door open. The
door was open the whole time – only Sol was pushing it the
,, · ‘
What the fuck are you two doing?
They stumble out into the street. Vinny is in big trouble.
They throw him into the van. Just as Sol gets into the back,
we hear kicking noises on metal from the van behind. Tyrone
pulls out. And the rear doors of the van behind them fly
open. Franky Four Fingers appears from the back of this ·
van. He was locked in due to the fact that the black guys’
van was blocking his exit.
34 CONTINUED: (3.)
Tyrone get us outta here.
Tyrone takes an interest in the man from the van (ie Franky)
seeing that he’s carrying a case and the case is connected
to his wrist.
I said, get us outta here Tyrone!
35 EXT. CAESARS PALACE STREATHAM
The Aston Martin comes to a screeching halt outside. Doug
is quite pale from the ride. Hands looks almost satisfied
with the car.

He then looks at the sign of the rundown venue, his eyes

Hands points out Brick Top who is being crowded by minders.
Horrible bastard, it’s his fight,

He touches the side of his nose and inhales.
So he doesn’t need to do this, but

It hits Bomber Harris square on the jaw this has the effect
of forcing blood out of his ears the man is positively out
cold. We crashtrack into various characters’ reactions:
Brick Top, Turkish and Tommy etc. All are in shock. The
ref (who is obviously paid off as well) tries to resuscitate
Harris/ but it’s not happening, he catches a look of
desperation from one of the villains and is eventually left
with little choice but to hold Micky’s hand up. We cut to
the nasty looking characters that we saw before they have

38 EXT. STREET OUTSIDE BOOKIES — DAY
(NB: the first half of this scene happens about midway scene
28 – as Tyrone parks the van )
We cut back to Frankie Four Fingers getting out of his van.
He takes a quick look around and enters the back of his van.
There he raises the spare tire and picks up his gun, he
examines it and places it in his trouser front. He then
turns to exit. At which point there is a loud smash and
Franky is knocked backwards (as Tyrone hits his van).
WE CUT TO BLACK. ‘
WE FADE UP
(Time-wise, we’re now at the end of scene 34)
Frankie wakes up. He has a trickle of blood dripping down
the back of his neck, he looks at his watch and panics. He
kicks the doors a couple of times – nothing happens, but on
the third kick the doors spring open. Franky brushes himself
off and makes his way to the bookies.
39 EXT. STREET OUTSIDE BOOKIES –DAY
We cut to Tyrone. Tyrone clocks the case attached to Franky’
wrist. Gets out and slams the end of the gun across Franky
Four Fingers’ head. He falls to the ground. Tyrone tries
to take the case off him but i t ‘ s handcuffed to his wrist.
So he has little choice but to pick him up and throw him in
to the back of the car with the other two.
40 INT. PAWN BROKERS — DAY
We cut to the black guys trying to open the case. They have
Franky’s hand up on a desk and are fiddling with the handcuff,
whatever they are trying to break in with snaps off. Vinny
is frustrated and illustrates his dissatisfaction.
Where ‘ s the Russian?
He should be here in a minute. Well
get him to open it.
Vinny turns to Franky who has tape over his eyes.
Oi, you, Four Fingers, how are we
going to get into your case?
FRANKY THREE FINGERS
If you take the tape off my eyes ·
I Ml tell you.
What do you need the tape off your
eyes for? You talk out of them?
Just tell us the combination.
FRANKY THREE FINGERS
I can’t remember the combination I
can only do it if I see it .
You look at us and it’s good night.
Vinny takes it off. Franky blinks at the revelation of light.
And gets busy opening the case .
He opens it – and it’s got about a grand inside.
FRANKY FOUR FINGERS
And here’s the money.
40 CONTINUED: .
I don’t believe this. Why are you
carrying round a case with this little
in it? . .
Vin turns to Sol and Tyrone who is leaning on the big shotgun
At which point Franky pulls out the gun from the secret
compartment in the case.
FRANKY FOUR FINGERS
Now be a bunch of good fellas and
lie down on the floor.
Tyrone goes for the big gun and Franky pulls the trigger.
Nothing happens other than a big click, there is silence for
a long second and the black guys open their tightly shut
Tyrone also looks into the case and sees the. open secret
compartment: this also reveals the stone.
Hello what have we got here?
41 EXT. PAWN BROKERS
Boris is admiring the outside of the shop. He walks in.
42 INT. PAWN BROKERS
Franky is tied up on a stool, in front of him is the case
and it’s open. Boris waves the black guys to come into the
corridor so they can talk without being heard.
What are you doing with him?
The case was attached to his body.
So why didn’t you chop it off?
Sol looks horrified by the thought.
Err, because we didn’t. Now Boris
we have or rather you have a problem.
There wasn’t any money there. v
Boris pulls out a wad of notes
There’s ten grand.
Keep it. We want this, or at least
half of this.
Vin holds up the stone: the atmosphere changes.
What was in the case was mine, what
was in the bookies was yours, ok
there wasn’t much but, here’s ten
large to help the situation.
I am afraid it’s too late for that
He holds up the diamond. Boris1 eyes follow him as he walks
back into the room where Franky is and puts the diamond back
into the case while he’s talking and changes the combination.
We want half and that’s because we
are being generous. We could by
rights keep the whole fuckin stone.
Boris grimaces and pulls out a gun from god knows where, and
within a second shoots poor Franky in the face. Franky’s
body disappears off the stool that he was sitting on. The
black guys are stunned into silence.
You fuckin idiots. He couldn’t know
who I am. Now open the case and
give me.the stone.
The black guys are left with their mouths open, everything
just changed gear and they weren’t expecting that.
Who’s next? You have the ten grand
now give me the stone.
The pause continues. Boris lets a shot off that tears
worryingly close to Sol’s head.
42 CONTINUED: (2.)
The only man that knows the
combination you just shot.
Boris appears little bothered by this and whips out a four
foot machete that he was concealing about his person. He
pulls the case towards him and brings the machete down with
full force. We can tell by the expression on Tyrone’s face
that it must have been some part of Franky’s anatomy.
Pointing to the ground:
He’s your problem now. You can keep
the” ten grand along with the body,
but if I see you again…well look
He points to Franky. While he is saying this he bends down
and picks up the case from the floor and wraps the severed
arm in newspaper. He then walks out of the shop casual as
43 EXT. AMUSEMENT ARCADE LONDON — MORNING
Turkish pulls up outside his arcade and has a look around:
all seems to be clear.
I ain’t going in the front.
I don’t think it’s a good idea you
going in at all.
The car surges off round the back.
Unless you are going to
transcendentally extract the passports
and cash from out of a steel safe, I
can’t see any other way of getting
them. Keep your eyes peeled.
Turkish has another look around the back
Well I can’t see anyone. After I
have got in go round the front and
call me if you see anything.
44 INT. AMUSEMENT ARCADE
Turkish lets himself in and walks through. Everything seems
to be fine. ·
He walks into his office, has a quick look around and makes
his way to the safe under the floor. He decides to put the
kettle on, does so, and his attention is caught by something,
he looks at the cups on the side and sees that one is waiting
to be made. He stands back and looks at the cupboards he
sees that they are all open. Then he sees that the kettle
is already boiled.
Oink, oink. Where do you keep the
Shit you scared the life outta me.
You wait till you see what the pigs
do to you.
What brings you two here, run out of
pants to sniff?

Very cool Turkish.
Well what do you want?
I want two sugars in my tea. What
do you want John?
I want to see him lying cold and
still, but we aren’t here for what
we want are we Errol?
Errol shakes his head slowly. Turkish’s phone rings. They
let it ring for a while.
Well aren’t you going to answer it?
45 EXT. AMUSEMENT ARCADE LONDON — MORNING

In walks Brick Top before the boys have had a chance to get
Turkish. Got the kettle on?
Turkish adapts to his new circumstances.
You want sugar?
No thank you Turkish, I am sweet

You come through that door and you’ll
be going out prostrate.
It doesn’t belong to you Charlie.
He kicks open the door. CHARLIE is standing behind his desk
holding a pistol directly at Tony. On the table is a bag of
what we must believe is coke, it’s open, and Charlie has it
all over his nose. .
You silly fucker, you can’t go running
off with other people’s gear. How
much you put up your nose?
Charlie opens up, he fires four shots straight into Tony who
buckles and falls to the floor. Tony seems only shaken and
he holds his hands out to inspect them, he’s bleeding.
Oh you silly cunt.
Tony stands and walks towards Charlie. Charlie is
understandably shocked and fires another. It goes straight
through Tony and we see the blood hit the wall behind.
Go down-boy, go down.
Tony keeps going for him. Charlie raises the gun and points
it at Tony’s face and fires the last shot. The bullet goes
straight into his mouth but it went in at an angle and it
exits his cheek. Tony is standing there with six. bullet
holes in him and bleeding all over the carpet. As he talks
blood courses its way down his front and a strong lisp is
frustrating the words.
Ohh you’f in twouble nowf.
Tony slowly extracts a short sword from behind him. Fear
has set into Charlie’s face and has rendered him useless.

looks back and says “doesn’t bother
me, I’m a duck.
Turkish looks back at him blankly.
Here let me do you a favour.
He reaches over and grabs the carton from Turkish, and throws
it out the window. The milk obviously hits an on-coming car
. in the other direction. There is a terrible crashing noise.
Tommy and Turkish come to a standstill, and look back to see
a small pile up on the other side of the road.
What was in that milk?
92 INT. BORIS’ HOUSE
BTT, Hands and Rose Bud are standing over a safe. They are
looking at a whole pile of money. The case is open and Hands
is holding the stone.
He’s a sneaky fucker that Russian.
Well shall we go?
What you want to do about the Russian?
I want to bury him.
EXT. BORIS1 HOUSE
Hands, Tony and Rosebud walk out.
94 INT. TYRONE’S CAR
The black guys witness this. Tyrone’s now in the front seat
Well come on let’s have em.
Pause while they consider this.
94 CONTINUED: –
Well come on.
Not so fast Vin we can’t get em now
we gonna have to follow them.
B TT’s car moves off. The black guys follow.
I ‘ l l move in. It’ll be ok.
OK is very close to KO, and KO is
close to R.I fucking.P. You know
what RIP stands for Tyrone?
It stands for.
It stands for .shut your fuckin mouth
Tyrone and leave the talking to us.
Let’s get these ready.
Do they fire?
Pointing to the guns.
Of course they fuckin fire?
How do you know? They’re replicas,
what do you know about replicas?
Sol looks at the gun and frowns, “what does he know about
replicas”? He pulls the trigger. He fires one shot. It is
very loud, the gun goes off near Tyrone’s ear, he buckles in
. pain. The car does a massive swerve and everything nearly
ends in disaster, all the windows shatter including the
windshield (but the glass stays put). Tyrone regains some
control over the car.
What the fuck do you think you’re
Jesus, I didn’t know it was that
94 CONTINUED: -<2)
Well just how fuckin loud did you
think it was going to be? It’s a-
fucking gun Sol, guns are renowned
for making a loud fucking noise
whenever you pull the trigger.
You wanted to see if they worked.
I didn’t mean try it in the fuckin
Well they work, I reckon they are
really going to put the shits into
Right now I am not concerned with
putting the shits into em Sol, I am
” ” . concerned about taking the pain out
of my ringing fucking ears. Look
what you did to poor Tyrone. Tyrone
He taps Tyrone on the shoulder. Tyrone looks up.
Are you alright?
Tyrone spins in his seat and answers a little too loudly.
I am fuckin deaf! What have you
done to my car?
They crash into the car in front. Boris the Blade comes
flying through the windshield.
95 INT. BTT CAR — NIGHT
(This scene runs concurrently with scene 91)
How we going to get rid of him?
You want to shoot him?
I t ‘ s a bit noisy isn’t it?
95 CONTINUED: –
Well you want to stab him?
That’s a bit cold blooded isn’t it?
You want to kill him or not?
I’ 1 1 cut him.
That’s the spirit. There’s a sword
He points to behind a seat: there is a bloody great sword
concealed. Tony skillfully passes the sword to Rose Budd,
who attempts to pull it out of its scabbard. Tony turns
round to Hands.
You, you want a knife?
He passes Hands a knife.
I wouldn’t know what to do with it.
It’s not a fuckin rocket launcher.
It’s a knife for gods sake, what
have you used for to keep your fork
company for all these years? It’s
got a sharp side and a blunt side.
You want a lesson?
There is a sudden bang on the windshield and BTT turns back
to the front only to see the windshield covered in milk.
Tony can’t see where he is going and searches for the
windshield wipers. While this is happening the car swerves
to the side and hits a lamp post. They crash and the boot
(trunk) has flown open and Boris the Blade tries to lift
himself out. Rose Bud looks down at the sword he has been
extracting he can see he very nearly cut himself in two.
Tony pulls himself up from the steering wheel he has a trickle
of blood running down his face. There’s a crash and a car
hits em from behind.
96 INT. TYRONE’S CAR –NIGHT
They too are recovering from the accident. And Boris has
now come headfirst through the windshield.
96 CONTINUED: –
You idiot what have you done?
Is that Boris?
97 INT. BTT’S CAR
We hit something and something hit
He turns and sees that Rose Bud has got a sword sticking
though him. It’s gone through him and the seat that he is

They are getting out.
Well get down, the last thing we
want him to see is three brothers
wearing ski masks.
1.01 INT. CAFE
BTT and Hands, covered in blood, walk off the street into a

He goes out the back while BTT goes to the pay phone to call
102 EXT. STREET
The black guys pile out of the car and follow BTT and Hands
at a safe distance.
103 INT. CAFE
BTT is on the phone
Doug, we are in the shit, come and
pick us up.
104 EXT. BORIS1 HOUSE
Tommy and Turkish pull up outside Boris’ house.
He’s left the door open.
104 CONTINUED: –
I shouldn’t think that’s a good idea.
Shall we have a look?
I don’t want to go in there, he’s a
dangerous bastard, taken too many
disco biscuits in the heat of Russian
disputations, he’s got as many of
these nuts as those nuts.
He grabs his groin and circles his finger and his temple
I don’t care if he’s got fuckin hazel
nuts, I want a gun that works.
Well come on then before the Germans
105 EXT. CAFE . .
The black guys have followed BTT and Hands and are waiting
outside, readying themselves for action. .
SOL ‘ .
. Now Tyrone you go… Tyrone, oi
Tyrone can’t hear a thing.
I’11 never forgive you Sol.
Sol taps Tyrone on the shoulder.
When we get in you wait by the door
I am number one, Vin number two and
you are number three.
106 INT. CAFE
The black guys enter. BTT has just finished his phone call
and sat down. . -.
I don’t want a fuss and I don’t want
to put a bullet in your face, but
unless you give me exactly what I
want there will be murders.
BTT shakes his head in amazement.
106 CONTINUED: –
Number three pull the blind down.
Tyrone can’t hear this request.
lo number three, he said pull the
He still can’t hear him. This is minorly embarrassing.
I’ll sort it. .
Excuse me, but who the fuck are you?
You hear what .1 said? Stand up,
unless you’re crippled.
Do I look crippled? ,
You’ll look fucking dead, unless you
Sol cocks the gun and Tony pulls a sarcastic ‘I am shocked’
You got ballsl
You want to test em?
There are two types of balls, there
are big brave balls and there are
little mincy faggot balls.

So you’re obviously the big dick,
and they on either side of you, must
be your balls.
Vin goes to hit him with the gun but it’s caught by Tony,
Vin tries to pull the nose out of Tony’s hand but he can’t
move it. Sol steps forward and raises his gun.
Let go of the gun.
Vinny cocks his gun. There is a pause and eventually Tony
lets go of it.
I am talking for your benefit. Now
dicks have drive, and clarity of
Tony starts to build himself a complicated looking weapon
under the table, unseen by the black guys. He takes bits
out of one sock and bits out of another sock.
But they’re not clever, they smell
pussy, and they want a piece of the
action, and the dimmer the dick, the
less he cares about the consequences,
and you thought you smelt gooood ol
pussy, and have brought your little
mincy faggot balls along for a gooood
ol time, but you have got your parties
muddled up, there is no pussy here,
just a dose to make you wish you
were born a woman.. . .
We cut to the shell shocked brothers, and the almost
completely built weapon.
And just like a prick, you are having
second thoughts; you’re shrinking,
and your little balls are shrinking
They stare on. The brothers have lost this one and they
know it. They start to reverse. BTT lets the odd chicken
cluck out the corner of his mouth, Vinny misses his step and
waves his gun about in a futile effort to look mean. They
back away into the corridor down to the back door of the
- . .
107 INT. CORRIDOR — CONTINUOUS
…and just as they turn the corner they bump into Hands
still drying his hands, they can see that he’s carrying a
case that they recognize. The brothers adapt to their new
Pass it me.
108 INT. CAFE.– CONTINUOUS
BTT can hear that the black guys and Hands have run into
each other and pulls out the complicated looking gun which
is now in one piece. BTT cocks the gun and aims it at the
wall which the brothers would be behind, he follows the wall
simulating the speed of their journey.
109 INT. .CORRIDOR — CONTINUOUS
I won’t ask again
He raises his gun. A covey of bullets perforates the wall,
one hitting Vin in the hand. The brothers take the
opportunity to duck. Hands dives for cover too and drops
the bag. A continuation of bullets comes flying through the
wall. The black guys take the opportunity to pick the bag
up and leg it.
110 INT. CARAVAN
I AM AFRAID THAT THIS SCENE HAS TO WAIT UNTIL I HAVE BEEN TO
A IRISH TRAVELERS WAKE. I’LL BE ABOUT FOUR MINUTES LONG.
IF YOU HAVE ANY IRISH RELATIVES THAT HAVE DIED RECENTLY DON’T
HESITATE TO CALL.
111 INT. BRICK TOP’S PUB
The brothers are standing in front of Brick Top, they move
uneasily from foot to foot. Brick Top examines the stone.
He looks up.
Quite a lump. Alright you can go ‘
now . ‘
Any chance of taking Lincoln with
That’s where Errol’s taking ya.
They turn and Errol is waiting for them.
They go out of one room into another, and Errol shuts the
door behind them. Vin looks uncomfortable. Another door is
opened and a man brings out Lincoln. Lincoln is in bad shape
and is relieved to see familiar faces, they are now shut in
a room .
You alright Lincoln?
Do you know why the governor is the
I t ‘s because people are scared of
him. You know why they are scared
It’s because of stories. I am sure
you’ve heard one or two of those
stories. For example, did you hear
about the three black fellas that
did a very bad thing, however they
made some effort to redeem that very
bad thing, so the governor saw fit
not to kill em. He thought it would
be a more advantageous concept to
let them kill each other and let the
survivor live to tell the tale.
That way everybody wins, well, all
except the two that died of course.
We look at the table where we see three large kitchen knives
sitting provocatively. Tyrone rushes for one of the blades
grabs it and runs at Vin, Vin sidesteps and Tyrone keeps
running straight into the arms of Errol who raises his gun
at the last moment. Tyrone slides the blade into Errol ‘s
ribs and Errol fires a shot straight at Tyrone. The bullet
passes through Tyrone and hits John in the throat . Vin,
Lincoln and Sol are left wondering what the fuck has just

BAD BOY LINCOLN ,

Sol goes for one, and Vin goes for the other.
112 INT. CARAVAN, PIKEY CAMPSITE
There is a wake in motion. We cut to Micky and Turkish. It
is obvious that a lot of hard core drinking has been going
on, and there is an Irish band playing. The is a coffin in
the middle of a caravan that is closed for obvious reasons
i t ‘ s surrounded by heavy looking lads. The is a man dancing
on one of the tables.
THIS SCENE I SHALL BE FILLING IN SHORTLY BUT I AM AFRAID YOU
HAVE TO WAIT TILL I HAVE BEEN TO A IRISH WAKE. ALL AS I
KNOW IS THAT RATHER IRONICALLY THEY ARE FUN. HOWEVER I LIKE
JUXTAPOSITIONS OF MICKY SINGING AND CRYING SIMULTANEOUSLY.
113 INT. DOUG’S OFFICE ‘
All three black guys are sitting in front of BTT and Hands
and Doug. There is silence as the white guys have just been
told something disturbing. BTT eventually breaks the silence
Well you gotta admire their balls.
_ I don’t want to admire balls that I
want to chop off.
What choice did we have?
I know sorry doesn’t mean fuck all,
but we are game on, what do you want
us to do?
Get us that stone back.
So Brick Top has now got the stone?
He’s got it.
You wouldn’t be lying to us would
Why should we? Could just have
Cut to Hands who’s thinking.
114 INT. BRICK TOP’S PUB
BTT and Hands are at the bar.
You got some front coming round here
ain’t ya Tony?
Never mind what I got , I am looking
for Brick Top?
You mean Mr Mclean.
You know who I mean you fucking fringe
now find him.
Pause: the barman looks truculent.
The barman walks down the end of a bar and picks up the phone.
What was it you did exactly Tony?
I had a little run in with a few of
How ‘ s that ?
They’re all brainless, they got white
powdered angels sitting on their
shoulders telling them what was what,
all too busy. . .
114 CONTINUED: –
He sticks his finger by the side of his nose and inhales.
If they weren’t sniffing the dust
they where flicking the ash. And
never trust who puts anything other
than a finger up his nose.
KEN, another of Brick Top’s men, appears from somewhere and
approaches Tony with another heavy, SEAN.
They do and end up in a corridor. The door .shuts behind
them and the door in front hasn’t yet opened. Ken turns
around and faces Tony.
Did you know that it was my cousin
Lorrie you stabbed?
There is a pause. The situation is volatile.
Yes I know I stabbed a man called
Lorrie, but no I didn’t know he was
related to a tub a shit.
Ken knows it’s on.
Shut that door Sean.
Lock that fuckin door Sean.
BTT takes a step forward and puts his hand, into the back of
his trousers. He starts to growl.
You’re a big man, but I don’t care
if you’re ten foot fuckin tall, you
still got eight pints of blood and
you’ll bleed like any bastard. And
. when.I drop .ya, and I will fuckin
drop ya, I’ll open you up like a
packet of crisps.
Pause to take in what has just been said then he continues.
You’re a bully Ken, but remember, I
am a bigger bully.
114 CONTINUED: (2)
The door opens and they are interrupted by another HEAVY.
Ha, Ken what’ s going on? Bring em
through. The governor wants to see
Ken is relieved by the interruption, and he leads the way
with a truculent “you’re lucky” stare. They enter Brick
I gotta say you have got some front
coming round here Tone, you know the
lads are picking straws. . .
You gotta diamond and it doesn’t
belong to you, it belongs to my
That’s what I love about you Tone,
no small talk.
I said we should come round and raise
fuckin hell, you know shoot a few of
the boys and that, but he said he
thinks we would have more success if
we paid for it. So I am going to
have a drink and let you two discuss
what you have to discuss.
Btt walks to the bar. Ken is sitting there with Sean.
Alright big man, I hope you aren’t
bitter about your cousin Lorrie.
If you listen carefully, you will hear a slight zip of flies
You know you’re alright when they’re
are talking business, I ‘ d like to
see you gob off outta here.
Ohh do me a favour Ken, you’ve always
been mouth and no trousers.
114 CONTINUED: (-3)
We cut back to Brick Top and Hands
I ‘l l pay for it, I won’t pay you the
top fuckin whack but you’ll never
get that anyway. You got it?
I can’t sell you something I haven’t
got now can I?
BTT returns to them – there is a scream from Ken
You’re a dead fuckin man. You listen
to me Tony you’re a dead fuckin…
Brick top frowns at Ken, and Ken shuts up quickly.
What did you do to upset Ken, Tony?
He’s pissed in my fuckin pocket,
Ken shows off a wet-sided jacket and a damp set of trousers.
Do shut up Ken. That was a bit
Tony shrugs. Brick Top puts his hands in to his pocket and
withdraws the stone. We cut to Hand’s expression.
Well come on, let’s have a look.
Brick Top passes the stone to Hands. All goes quiet while
everybody focuses on the stone. Hands lifts it up to his
What are you playing at? –
He drops the stone: it smashes on the ground.
It’s a zirconia.
We crash track in to Brick Top’s expression of shock.
115 INT. VAULT(DOUG’S OFFICE)
The four black guys are trying to pick the lock of the vault,
having been locked in it by Bullet Tooth, Hands and Doug.
I changed the stone.
I changed it. I know Brick Top knows
nothing about stones.
Yes but Doug the fuckin head does!
Yeah well I didn’t expect them to
lock us up in here did I?
Ohh your one clever bastard Vin, you
really are. Where is it?
It’s at Lincoln’s.
BAD BOY LINCOLN
What the fuck’s it doing at my place?
Waiting for us to pick it up.
What happen if they find that it’s a
fake stone Vince?
Well we are going to get fucked Sol
what do you think is going to happen?
The door opens.
Ohh yes you are going to get fucked
116 INT. DARK.
A distant voice is shouting
Oi Micky. Oi Micky.
117 ‘ INT. VAN — NIGHT
We fade out of black to Micky’s pov. Thisis shot in slow
motion. Micky opens his eyes, in the backof.a large van,
there is only one faint light that moodilyilluminates his
You feeling alright Micky?
I’ve felt better.
We are nearly there. They are a
horrible bunch this lot Micky so pay
attention to what you are doing.
Micky just yawns.
Put up some kind of a show, he’s a
hard bastard this “good night”
Anderson so don’t get too clever, he
used to be a pro. Just keep moving
round the ring, and let the odd one
go when push has come to shove.
Let’s get on with it, shall we?
118 INT. WAREHOUSE – ‘
A temporary ring has been erected, four scaffolding posts
with welded on hoops make the arena, the ropes that are
threaded through the hoops are industrial nylon and free of
padding. Around the ropes it’s starting to fill. Brick Top
approaches Salt Pete and Jack ‘the all seeing eye’.
I hope we gonna get a better show
This will make up for it. Micky’s
going down in the fourth. Terry
over there is in charge of the bets.
Now you’ll have to forgive me.
Brick Top leaves with Ken.
BRICK TOP (CONT’D)
Have we got the lads at the- camp
Yeah they are there.
Cut to a shot of some of Brick Top’s heavies waiting in a
car outside the campsite.
Where’s that fuckin pikey?
119 INT. BACK OF WAREHOUSE
Brick Top is standing in front of Micky whose eyes are still
What’s wrong with you? You stoned?
Is he fuckin stoned?
TURKISH . –
He’s like that before a fight.
He turns his attention to Micky.
Now you know when you’re going down?
Of course he knows when he’s going
Hey fuck face, who’s speaking to
you? He asked him didn’t he?
Fuck face? I like that, I ‘ l l have
to use that one next time -I want to
impress your mum Ken.
The fourth… or was it the fifth..
There’s a campsite full of pikies
that might not think you’re so fuckin
funny when they ‘are putting the flames
out on their children’s backs.
Cut to a shot of Brick Top’s boys lighting a cigarette in
the car outside the pikies.
120 INT. WAREHOUSE
Micky appears from a small door at the back of the warehouse.
He approaches the ring accompanied with shouts of
encouragement and counter shouts. He’s wearing a pair of
semi cut tracksuit bottoms and a t-shirt with grease marks
down the front. Turkish walks behind him, Micky still looks
bored. He climbs into the ring. Then from the same door as
the one through Micky came out walks a larger character with
a nose that appears to have seen countless rounds with a
frying pan: HORACE ‘GOOD NIGHT1 ANDERSON.
Alright lads no eye gouging no biting.
Do your worst. Back to your corners.
We drift again into Micky’s pov, his world is becoming more
and more surreal. He can faintly hear Turkish whispering
words to him, but he’s not really listening. A bell comes
from somewhere, and Micky instinctively walks to the center
of the ring. “Good night” is already there, they pace one
another for a second or two, Micky avoids a punch or two and
then he takes a hard one and he knows it, we flash to white,
Micky’s in trouble: he lets one of his missiles go and BANG
it shakes “good night” to his core, all goes quiet. We go
to super slow motion: his knees buckle and “good night” is
in trouble. Micky maintains a frown as he watches his
opponent’s knees threaten to betray him. The crowd tries to
digest what is happening. After a period of silence reality
dawns. Brick Top mouths the words in silence.”Don1t go down
you fucker”. The crowd wants Micky to finish the job. But
common sense reins back the coup de grace. “Good night”
eventually regains control of his legs and stumbles forward,
after a few sleepy punches he starts to provide a serious
I don’t like the look of this Tommy,
bring the van up to the back door.
This goes on for two rounds (which is montage down to a few
seconds). We go in the mind of poor Micky. We break the
music just as it’s starting to look dangerous… The bell
goes and Micky walks to the wrong corner. Turkish pulls him
back to his corner.
They are on ya. You got to hurt him
Micky. Otherwise we are
rumbled…. you hear me Micky? Do
-something, it looks like it’ s rigged.
Micky goes out again his hands are low, BANG there is a flash
of white as Micky goes down in the dirt. Dust rises from
where he fell. He gets up quickly, his hands are still low,
BANG he goes down again, in no time he’s up.
120 CONTINUED: –
BANG: he hits the ground again and this time when he hits
the deck, he penetrates the dust covered floor, like i t ‘ s
made out of water. He falls through the water like he’s
sinking; his eyes are open and he can’t breathe, he continues
to fall, but he’s unpanicked (he is now Micky 1). When Micky
1 looks up he can see himself in the corner of the ring takin
kidney punches from Good Night, he’s winded and only semi-
conscious (this is Micky 2). Micky 1 makes the effort to
swim up and tries to penetrate the floor but he’s stuck he
can’t get through. Micky 2 takes more punishment in the
ring, as Micky 1 ‘ s hand continues to try to break the
underside of the floor but it stretches like rubber and forces
Micky 1 down again. Micky 1 looks up again and sees how
much trouble Micky 2 ‘ s in the ring. Micky 1 is panicking
now, he’s running out of oxygen and Micky 2’s being beaten,
Micky 1 starts -to sink again but now flames tickle the bottom
of his feet he looks up. and sees Micky 2 being smashed to
hell, his body eventually collapses and Micky 2 falls through
the floor. And as the latter falls through, Micky 1 manages
to rise from the depths and his punch manages to perforate
the surface. The punch continues its trajectory and has the
power to fell a red blooded rhino…. it catches “Good Night”
on the jaw and it’s good night for “Good Night” it’s unlikely
that he’ll awake in the next hour. Dear oh dear everybody
is in trouble.
Again we cut to the reactions of the relevant parties.
Tommy get the van.
I have it, it’s waiting.
Turkish jumps into the ring and grabs Micky.
We are off Micky, hold tight, and
move quickly. ,
Turkish pulls Micky away. It’s not as hard as it might be
trying to get out, because the crowd seems to have found its
own disputes, chairs start to fly. Brick Top’s boys are
frustrated in the mayhem. Brick Top calmly dials into his
mobile telephone. It rings.
121 EXT. CARAVAN, PIKEY CAMPSITE
Darren picks up the phone.
If you would you like to speak to
your friends, you’ll have to speak a
We pull back to see four slumped heads in the car and blood
staining the windscreen. Brick Top calmly puts the phone
Right lets get outta here.
Brick Top is looking every which way and trying to get out
of there, accompanied by Ken.
BRICK TOP (CONT.’D)
Where’s the car Ken?
I t ‘ s coming now.
We are outta here.
They come out of a side entrance, their car pulls round the
corner and screeches to a halt. Brick Top opens the door as
he is about to get in, he’s eyes widen to the size of saucers
as FOUR MEN (who we recognize from the wake) are sitting in
the place of his driver. They both have sawed-off shotguns
and empty four barrels into the chest of Brick Top and Ken.
The car spins away, leaving their twitching bodies on the
122 INT. BAD BOY LINCOLN’S HOUSE .
Hands, Doug and Bullet Tooth have Vin, Sol and Bad Boy Lincol
in tow. They look at the front room of Lincoln’s house.
Very nice Lincoln.
Veeeery nice Lincoln.
Well where is it?
They open the door.
123 INT. BAD BOY LINCOLN’S SITTING ROOM.
This room is a complete mess. All the colony leather has
been chewed up beyond recognition. They all grimace at the
smell. The dog comes running up
123 CONTINUED: –
B AD BOY LINCOLN
Look what your dog’s done to my
It’s a bit funky in here.
BTT opens a window. The dog looks extremely relieved to see
You keep a good house Lincoln. So
where’s this stone?
It was over there.
He points to a pile of chewed up cushions.
We left it in a box over there…
He walks over and finds the remains of the box.
I t ‘ s empty.
Dear oh dear.
He’s not fuckin about, we left it
there. It must be in the dog.
All eyes focus on the dog.
Well let’s have a look shall we?
. . . . Tn .
All eyes focus on Tony.
Have a vlook in the dog.
123 CONTINUED: ( 2 )
What do you mean have a look in the
I mean open him up..
Tony is not sure about this.
I t ‘ s not a fuckin tin of baked beans,
what do you mean open him up?
I mean open him up.
Hands does a movement that represents a knife across the
That’s a bit strong isn’t it?
You wouldn’t have a problem if it
was a person.
But it’s not, it’s a dog and I have
never done a dog.
My heart bleeds.
There is another pause
What dp I do?
Let me take a wild and reckless guess.
Stick a knife in his guts and see if
it’s got a diamond in there? I’ll
hold it still and’you open it up.
Tony looks positively unsure and rocks his head from side to
Fuckin hell, alright then.
You can’t do that.
123 CONTINUED: (-3)
Well do it to you as well if it makes
you feel any better.
Cut to Tony having some problems trying to get hold of the
awkward dog. The dog starts to squeak. Tony passes the
blade to Hands.
I t ‘ s squeaking.
What, you’ve never heard a dog squeak
before?… Hold him still.
The dog isn’t sure about this either. Vin is in a panic and
Stop! I can see it. I can see the
Hands at the point of entry stops. Vinny hops over to the
stone and picks it up. Tony lets the dog stand but keeps a
grip oh the collar. The dog is relieved to be semi-liberated.
Hands is still on his knees armed with an incredulous stare.
Well let’s see it.
Vinny holds it up. There’s a sense of relief. He then throws
the stone, it cuts through the air. And the dog seeing
.another projectile runs to intercept it. There’s a pause
while all now focus again on the dog. This is digested
literally and mentally. The dog recognizes all the attention
