In Like Flynt
Happy Tuesday, crime slicksters. It's time once again to take a trip to the dark side, where the girls are hot, the drinks are cold, and the hardboiled-pulp-noir action is non-stop, right here, at the coolest crime joint in cyberspace ... at That Killing Feeling.
In Chapter 32 of NOWHERE GIRL, we reach the exciting conclusion of our story ...
EXT./INT. MINI COOPER - MOVING - NIGHT
The girls cruise down Hollywood Boulevard.
Pass Grauman’s Chinese Theater,
the wind whipping their hair.
My adrenaline is still pumping.
Kinda cool, huh.
Welcome to the club.
Does Interpol have any openings?
Are you kidding?
When I tell them I have a twin,
they’ll shit bricks.
You’re In Like Flynt,
I like the sound of that.
Got a nice ring to it.
So what are you gonna do
with your half-million?
Half of the money.
In the attache case.
It’s in the trunk.
April shoots her a look.
Let’s go grab some breakfast.
My treat. I’m fucking starving.
FADE TO BLACK
OVER CLOSING CREDITS:
EXT. HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD - PODIUM - DAY
Cherry and April are given duplicate keys
to the city by the mayor.
The CROWD cheers.
INT. ROMANTIC RESTAURANT - NIGHT
Cherry and Peeler drink champagne
He takes her hand.
CAMERA PANS OVER to where
CHERRY’S DAUGHTERS are sitting.
They start GIGGLING.
EXT. TARGET RANGE - DAY
April takes aim at a target.
BLASTS OFF a ROUND OF SHOTS.
ANGLE ON --
With a perfect circular ring of
bullet holes around the head.
Hands the gun to Cherry.
FIRES off another
ROUND OF SHOTS.
ANGLE ON --
The ring of bullet holes
now has a smiley face.
EXT. EGYPT - THE PYRAMIDS - NIGHT
April and Cherry chase two BAD GUYS
up the steep incline.
EXT. PARIS - THE EIFFEL TOWER - NIGHT
April hangs over the railing with one hand,
pelted by rain, the wind whipping in her hair.
GUN SHOTS fire over her head.
Cherry leans down, pulls her up.
SLAPS a gun in April’s hand.
They SPIN AROUND,
and SHOOT a DOZEN ATTACKERS,
INT. THE WHITE HOUSE - OVAL OFFICE - DAY
April and Cherry sit in chairs
across from the PRESIDENT.
Cherry says something. Then April.
The President raises his eyebrows.
Picks up the phone.
And starts dialing ...
FADE TO BLACK.
DAZED, BEAUTIFUL & BRUISED
The further adventures of Carrie Love ...
