EXT. OUTSIDE THE FORGER’S – NIGHT
Frank leads two gangsters down the alley. They split up one goon rings the door bell whilst Frank and the other goon go around the back.
WE FOLLOW Frank and the SECOND GOON as they wind their way up the dusty stairs.
Frank and second goon enter The Forger’s Apartment and he’s tied to a chair.
Frank points the gun at The Forger.
Where is he?
The Forger indicates with his head to the bathroom. Frank hits the intercom and the First Goon comes up.
Second goon goes to the bathroom door and listens.
He looks back at Frank who motions to him to kick in the door.
The Second goon kicks in the door then enters.
WE HEAR FIGHTING followed by a couple of gunshots and Second Goon stumbles with a hole in his head, before toppling over.
Is that you Frank?
There’s nowhere to run fella. All we want is the girl.
Yeah yeah. Broken record mate. All this is bullshit and you know it.
Tiny violin over here.
How’s the leg?
Why don’t you come out and I’ll show you.
Who’s in charge now. You?
Johnny’s the boss now.
I thought I killed him.
My brother’s a hard man to keep down.
He may be your brother Frank but he’s a cunt and you know it. You should let it go.
Is that why you didn’t kill me?
You got a brain, Frank. Walk away. This is not what we do. This is all fucking wrong.
Can’t do that Mickey. You understand?
So we’re going to do this or talk like bitches all day?
The first goon rolls a flash bang into the bathroom. There’s a gentle clink and then BANG!
Bright light and a tinnitus ringing as the First Goon and Frank enter the bathroom. Mickey is gone the bathroom window flaps open.
He’s heading to the roof.
EXT. OUTSIDE THE FORGER’S APARTMENT – ROOF – CONTINUOUS
Both men head up the building and smash out of the roof exit – a shot pings passed and shatters the wooden frame.
Off in the distance Mickey runs between the air-con units and ducts and shit that ends up on the roofs of old buildings.
Frank and First Goon fire their weapons at the rapidly disappearing Mickey.
A chase ensues across the loosely connected roofs until Mickey reaches a wooden plank spanning two separate roofs.
He carefully hops across the plank and pulls the plank back just as First Goon leaps across the gap.
The two men fight with Mickey almost being pushed off the roof.
First goon eventually is overpowered just as Frank arrives.
For a moment both men consider each other until Mickey darts off across the roof.
