Whack'd Screenplay

WHACK’D SCREENPLAY

EXT. ROADSIDE - DAY

[Possible Extended Opening?]
Camera tracks a pizza boy on a moped driving passed. Camera slows and tilts up to show a figure peering through a window in an old abandoned apartment block.


INT. APARTMENT - DAY

A contracted killer is peering through the broken blinds, turns, opens his suitcase and begins to assemble his rifle. He positions himself at the window and begins to look through the scope to focus on the various windows of a Motel across the road.
Finding the correct room, he checks his PDA to confirm the target. He then begins to take aim and zooms in slowly.

INT. MOTEL ROOM - DAY

A man (target) is inside the room drinking a can of beer and we hear a bullet travel past. Due to the volume of the TV (maybe some action sequence or football game) he doesn't realise anything at this point.

INT. APARTMENT - DAY

The Hitman, getting slightly agitated and reloading as quick as he can taking aim and firing a couple more rounds off.Again looks through the rifle scope and begins to look more frantic.

INT. MOTEL ROOM - DAY

The target, still drinking his beer but this time he goes to take a swig and a bullet hits his can causing it to leak all over him.
Realising he's being targeted he ducks down in his seat then jumps to the window. Poking his head round the corner more bullets come through the window causing him to jump back.

INT. APARTMENT - DAY

The Hitman is really worried at this point, reloading and shooting more often. POV shot, the scope darting around, looking for a shot.

INT. MOTEL ROOM - DAY

[optional scene]
Cutting back to the target we see him slide down the wall in fear. He peers out the window again to see the Hitman running across the road with a pistol in his hand still shooting through the window.


The Hitman smashes through the door/window only to point a gun at the target and fire a few rounds off (throwing knife?).

The door/window smashing causes the target to fly back and land on his back.
At this point we see his face looking down his body, his hands patting himself down, checking if he’s been hit. Backing away from the Hitman in fear until stopped by something behind him.
Out of frame a hand falls on his shoulder causing him to jump.

Fast camera zoom out. The target realising that there’s a MASSIVE (mountain) pile of bodies (assassins) dressed in black with knives and silenced pistols etc.
He jumps up and grabs the Hitmans arm in fear...shaking LIKE A BABY.

[Beeping] The Hitman looks down and answers his PDA.
Camera close-up, mission success. You've whack'd the final assassin sent to kill him. PROTECT TARGET COMPLETED.

[Before or during end credits]
Another dead assassin falls from the open ceiling panel.


END.
