More Leaked Pages From The True Crime: Hong Kong Script

By Spencer . May 12, 2011 . 3:19pm

Yesterday’s True Crime: Hong Kong script leak featured protagonist, Detective Wei Shen, reuniting with an old acquaintance in prison, following his return to Hong Kong from America.

 

Today, we have more scenes from the script, but they don’t pick up where yesterday’s scene left off. Instead, we meet a new character, Mikey, who isn’t exactly friends with Wei. However, while the two have their differences, they end up working together to protect a ringleader named Uncle Po from a rival gang at a hospital.

 

 

Mob Headquarters: MIKEY is there with some low-level thugs, hanging out, waiting to see if Winston and Wei show up. MIKEY knows Winston is in trouble with the higher-ups and is savoring the outcome. While MIKEY and Winston aren’t exactly enemies, they clearly aren’t friends.

 

EXT. UNCLE PO’S APARTMENT

Winston and Wei arrive, finding Mikey leaning against the wall next to the door with a couple of thugs. Ponytail is finishing a conversation with Mikey; he looks at Winston and Wei as he walks off.

 

PONYTAIL
(to Mikey) I’ll run it past Big Smile Lee, see what he says.

Mikey nods, already focused on Winston and Wei.

 

MIKEY

(cocky, amused) Hey Winston… what’s wrong, you look a little pale?

 

WINSTON

Wei, this is Mikey. He talks a lot of shit but he’s harmless enough.

 

MIKEY

(to Winston) Dogeyes tells me you’ve been throwing your weight around. What happened? You two used to be so close.

 

WINSTON

(gruff) Is he here?

Mikey smiles, savoring the tension for a moment, then shakes his head.

 

MIKEY

Nah, he left a while ago.

(adding) I guess Uncle Po must’ve thought Dogeyes wasn’t the one to blame for all this… (INFERRING WINSTON IS IN TROUBLE- WE CAN SEE MIKEY TAKES SUBTLE PLEASURE IN THIS)

Mikey opens the door for them.

 

MIKEY (CONT’D)

You should go in. They’re waiting for you.

Winston gives Mikey a surly nod as he passes through the door, followed by Wei.

 

SCENE 2 HONG KONG ACTION– UNCLE PO ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT

High tension scene – fast paced, trying to protect themselves & UNCLE PO against an assassination attempt by rival gang 18K.

 

INT. HOSPITAL – UNCLE PO’S ROOM

Wei runs into the room. Mikey is there, ready to shoot him, but relaxes once he recognizes Wei.

 

MIKEY

18K tried to get to Uncle Po– they’re all over the place.

 

WEI

Yeah, I ran into a few of them on the way in.

Mikey nods. They quickly take up defensive positions, staying covered.

 

MIKEY

There’s a tech room down the hall… We might be able to use the computers to shut down the elevators. Fewer access points.

Wei– already moving out of the room—

 

WEI

I’m on it.

 

Mikey continues to protect UNCLE PO – stays alert, scans the room, gun at the ready exits the hospital room and joins Wei. Wei and MIKEY both have their weapons drawn. Alert, they’re taking advantage of a lull in the action to catch their breath; still, they’re in tactically sound positions and have proper trigger discipline. Outside, far off, police sirens can be heard.

 

MIKEY

You were at the meeting, right? Who won the election?

 

WEI

Two Chin Tsao.

 

MIKEY

(brief snicker) Heh, That guy?

Wei nods.

 

WEI

Uncle Po better pull through…

Mikey laughs. Police sirens grow ever closer, Mikey nods in the direction of the sound;

 

MIKEY

Let’s get out of here.

Mikey scans his surroundings & starts moving out. Wei leaves too.

 

SCENE 3

Wei and Mikey get out of a car, checking their surroundings attentively.

 

WEI

I think we’re clear.

Mikey nods in agreement. He takes out a pack of cigarettes, offering one to Wei. Wei accepts. Mikey takes a drag, nods approvingly at Wei’s new Sun On Yee tattoo.

 

MIKEY

Guan Yu. Nice.

 

WEI

He was definitely looking out for us tonight.

Mikey shakes his head.

 

MIKEY

No one was looking out for us… we just got lucky.

(then) The thing is… no one stays lucky forever.

Wei considers this for a moment, then shrugs.

 

WEI

This is the life we chose.

 

MIKEY

Is it?

(off his look) Feels like the game has changed. It used to be a brotherhood.

There was a code, even amongst rival triads. Now we’re killing each other at weddings, and even in fucking hospitals… nothing is sacred anymore.

Wei nods thoughtfully as Mikey trails off. They smoke in silence for a beat until MIKEY seems to snap out of it–

 

MIKEY (CONT’D)

We should split up in case they’re still looking for us.

 

WEI

(nodding) I’ll see you around.

They walk off in opposite directions.

    OK, we get it! This game we’ll never get to play was awesome, stop rubbing it in…
    So how close to finished was it? I remember seeing the pre-order display boxes at Gamestop, that usually means a game is kinda close…

    • Guest

      whispers: “Stoooooooop…” – (scene from The Breakfast Club)

  • darkfox1

    Why cancel a game that was basically finished? Why would any company do this? Can someone give examples?
