THE SETUP Last edited by panicd1atthedisco, on 12/25/2011. 0 comments. More scene info.

HELICOPTER SHOT over a city square near Washington D.C. with buildings surrounding it. The square is being prepared for a big event. ZOOM IN on a large building overlooking the square. large red letters on the roof spell out "great washington hotel".

A man with his back turned to the camera steps to the edge of the roof of the hotel. He sets down a duffel bag, and from within it withdraws a handgun and a silencer. As he is loading the handgun and attaching the silencer, a voice comes over the radio.

SCORPIO (over radio)

Rush, are you in position?

The man we now know as Rush turns his face to the camera and cocks the handgun.

RUSH (into radio)

Yeah, I'm ready. Commence Phase 1.

RUSH reaches into his duffel bag and pulls out a rapelling kit. He attaches one end of a long rope to one of the letters on the roof, then throws the other end down and clips himself to the line with a carabiner.

Sandbag, how's our on-the-ground recon coming along?

SANDBAG (over radio)

Still no sign of Mikhaev or his security detail. He's running late to his own funeral.

RUSH (into radio)

Don't worry, he'll be here. Echo, how're things on your end? What's Mikhaev doing?

panicd1atthedisco - on 12/25/2011

ECHO (over radio)

He's speaking Russian. He's telling all his troops to be on the lookout for... hell, I can't tell if he said " covert ops" or "coveralls".

I'll give you three guesses.

RUSH (into radio)

Guys, for Chrissakes get your act together or you're going to blow this whole operation! Scorpio, launch Phase 1. Echo, Sandbag... just hang tight.

RUSH begins to rapell down the side of the hotel on his rope. After about ten floors, his radio begins to crackle.

SCORPIO (over radio)

Rush, look out below on the balcony. Tango with a Malboro.

RUSH

No problem.
