Flynn Lockwood: Prologue

TITLE: FLYNN LOCKWOOD AND THE TEMPLE OF EDEN

FADES INTO:

SOUTHERN MEXICO- PRESENT DAY

over a skyline of jungle. The next shots are those of two pairs of boots stomping through the leaves and brush of the jungle floor. These shots are then interrupted by shots of bare feet running through the forest- clearly belonging to the Native inhabitants. An alligator is seen.

The boots then come to a stop; one pair behind the other. Focusing on the ones in front, the camera slowly pans up to reveal the face of FLYNN LOCKWOOD. It is a moment of triumph until the camera shifts slightly to the right and we see the face of SEAN LOCKWOOD, his father, behind him. 

FLYNN

Dad, don’t move. Don’t say a word.

The camera then revolves around to reveal what the men are looking at. It is the fabled Statue of Altair- the most significant find of Flynn’s young archeological career. The air is thick and hot with moisture and the situation is tense. Suddenly a snapped twig is heard and before Flynn can react he is bull-rushed by a Native and the two go sprawling into the bushes. Sean isn’t dumb and snatches the Statue before running for his life. While running we hear a gunshot in the distance and Sean turns back for Flynn.

FLYNN

No, you should’ve kept running! Let’s go!

As they begin to run now they are chased by several more Natives wishing to protect the Statue. We follow the Native Warriors as they come to a body of water and do not know where the Lockwoods have gone. Suddenly, one is hit very hard on the head by a rock from above and falls unconscious. We then see Flynn and Sean hiding in the tree above and Flynn swings down on a vine into the other Natives, knocking them down. A fist fight then ensues with Flynn defeating them easily. Flynn then helps Sean down and the two recover.

SEAN

Wow! Is this what you do?

FLYNN

Dad, please.

SEAN

I’ll say, archeology sure has changed since my time. Talk about getting out in the field! This was exhilarating!

FLYNN

I said please! We’re not out of the woods yet in case you hadn’t noticed.

SEAN

You, know I did help back there. That rock, was me.

FLYNN

Yeah, you’re right Dad. I don’t know why I never brought you along on these expeditions before.

SEAN

You better thank Benjamin for making you do this. One day you’ll realize what it means to you. To himself… and me…

FLYNN

What?

SEAN

Did you forget, my boy, about why we even came out here?

FLYNN

Oh, not at all. Let me see it!

As Sean pulls the Statue out from his coat pocket and handles it off to Flynn, he trips over a root, drops the Statue, and steps on it- crushing it into a million little pieces. We see Flynn’s face.

CUT TO BLACK.
