Establishing Shot: Run Down City- Cape Town- Africa
CARLY RAE JEPSEN, 18, is dancing on a hot pink tin roof, swaying her hips.
Sketchy PASSERBYS walk by below.
Carly throws a dime into a muddy pond on the street.
I threw a wish in the well
A GANGBANGER (28) looks up at her on the roof and starts to pull out his gun.
Don’t ask me I’ll never tell. I looked to you as it fell, and now you’re in my way.
His 300lb MOTHER, 50, motions for him to give it a rest and follow her down the street.
I trade my soul for a wish, pennies and dimes for a kiss.
Suddenly, DENZEL WASHINGTON (60) is jumping over roofs towards Carly. He’s being shot at by more GANGBANGERS. A gunshot rips a hole in his jeans.
Ripped jeans, skin was showing. Where do you think you’re going baby?
Denzel turns around and gives her a weird stare.
Carly continues to run after him while singing and proclaiming her undying lust for Denzel.
Hey, I just met you. And this is crazy. But here’s my number, so call me maybe.
Gunshots erupt near Carly’s feet. She barely notices.
Int. Safe House- Cape Town- Next Day
Carly is standing in the interrogation room singing and dancing.
Denzel is pained, strapped to his chair, forced to listen to this. He winces each time she winks at him.
You think you got me, but you don’t got me. No.
You took your time with the call, I took my time with the fall.
Damn straight I took my time with the m@#$# f&@#@#ing call.
Now you’re in my way.
Well then give me the money and we can all go home. No one’s gonna call no one here. You got me? You gotta just let it go.
You gave me nothing at all and now you’re in my way.
Carly bends over the long table and looks into Denzel’s eyes.
Your stare was holding, ripped jeans, skin was showing, where do you think you’re going??
I aint going out with a 15 year old.
EXT-Run Down City- Cape Town- Africa- ROOF- Same
Carly is dancing again on the hot pink roof.
Hot night wind was blowing. Where you think you’re going baby?
Denzel is diving off the roof into a huge pit of mud to try and escape Carly.
Hey I just met you, and this is crazy, so here’s my number. You’ll need me baby. And all the other boys, they try to chase me, but here’s my………..
A bunch of GANGBANGERS run up and try to chase Carly off of the roof.
WE SEE Carly writing her number with mud on the side of a shanty town house. She’s in pain and sitting there holding her stomach.
Carly starts to fall out of consciousness and is kissing a pretend person; her head falls to the ground.
Denzel stands up and shrugs his shoulders.
Ha. I wasn’t fooling you. I never said I would call. Why you thinking I was going to call?
