Hey there, crime kids. Happy Hump Day. It's time once again to take a trip to the dark side, where your most violent fantasies become sins of the flesh, right here, where the hardboiled action is non-stop, at the coolest crime joint in cyberspace ... at That Killing Feeling.
In Chapter 28 of THE HEISTERS, it's a clusterfuck of epic proportions when Kelsey and the gang try to leave the stadium concert after robbing the till, but get trapped by a swarm of drugged-out kids while trying to make their escape ...
EXT. STADIUM - EAST GATE - DUSK - FLASHBACK
The ambulance drives up to the gate.
A guard in the security booth sees it.
Opens the gate and waves it through.
INT. AMBULANCE - MOVING - DUSK - FLASHBACK
Kasper sits behind the wheel in an EMS uniform.
Waves back as he drives into the stadium.
INT. STADIUM - DUSK - FLASHBACK
A giant stage set up at one end.
A ROCK BAND plays at a DEAFENING volume
over the PA system.
The stands are filled to capacity.
But so is the field. Stadium seating.
The ambulance comes onto the field. Stops.
INT. AMBULANCE - DUSK - FLASHBACK
Kasper looks at the throng of people.
Starts to freak out.
Shit, shit, shit --
He pulls out his cell phone.
Punches a number. Listens.
Pick up, pick up --
INT. STADIUM FINANCE OFFICE - DUSK - FLASHBACK
Kelsey’s phone RINGS in her pocket.
She looks at Ronan.
She whips it out. Answers it.
There’s no fucking room, man.
There’s too many fucking kids on the field.
What am I gonna do?
The stadium’s filled with kids.
There’s no room for the ambulance
to get to us.
Greedy bastards oversold it.
Wait. I’ve got an idea --
(into the phone)
Tell the kids someone’s OD’d,
and you need to get through.
That won’t work.
Half of them are on their way
to OD’ing themselves --
It’ll work if you tell them it’s BONO.
He’s not that big anymore.
But they’ move if I tell ‘em
Jay-Z had a fuckin’ HEART ATTACK.
Perfect. DO IT.
Call me back if you have any problems.
You got it, baby.
I mean -- chief.
He hangs up.
Grabs the radio mike.
CLICKS it on.
Raises it to his lips --
EXT. STADIUM GROUNDS - NIGHT - FLASHBACK
LOUD ROCK MUSIC.
Throngs of TEENAGE KIDS
yell and scream and sing along.
Jumping up and down.
Dancing. Drinking. Partying.
The ambulance starts moving very slowly.
Kasper’s voice comes BOOMING
over the loudspeakers.
Jay-Z has had a HEART ATTACK.
Please move out of the way
and let the VEHICLE THROUGH.
The kids hear him.
Turn and look in horror.
Suddenly the crowd parts like the Red Sea.
Kasper starts driving through.
EXT. VENICE BEACH - APARTMENT BUILDING - NIGHT
We see Doll Montana’s apartment building.
Light from a single street lamp
makes it glow in the thick fog
that’s rolled in.
Kelsey’s car drives by.
Parks in the alley.
She gets out.
Starts walking toward the building.
EXT. STADIUM FINANCE OFFICE - PARKING LOT - NIGHT - FLASHBACK
The ambulance pulls up next the building and stops.
INT. STADIUM FINANCE OFFICE - NIGHT - FLASHBACK
Chick and Ronan finish tying up the girl
who counted the money.
Chick then leads her in the back
to join the others.
Kelsey ties a rope to the handles
of the duffle bags.
Drags them over to the window.
Then ties the other end to the leg of a desk.
Ronan helps her carry them over to the window.
EXT. STADIUM FINANCE OFFICE - PARKING LOT - FLASHBACK
The bags come out the window,
then down the side of the building
to where Kasper is waiting for them.
Kasper takes the cases and puts them
in the trunk of the Triumph Spider
nestled inside the ambulance.
Then, one by one, Kelsey, Ronan, then Chick,
and finally Ludo come down the rope
and walk up to the vehicle.
Ludo, still in his guard uniform,
gets in the passenger side next to Kasper.
Ronan and Kelsey squeeze behind
the back of the seat and the Triumph,
and Chick gets into the car.
Kasper starts up the ambulance,
HITS THE SIREN and starts driving it
toward the west gate.
Now that we were in the stadium,
we didn’t have to leave
the same way we came in.
We could exit through the west gate
near the backstage area,
which had been closed to
vehicles during the concert,
but was now open so the bands could leave.
The ambulance ROCKETS
toward the gate, then slows.
A long, black limousine
starts to go through. Then stops.
IN THE AMBULANCE
Kasper HITS the brakes.
POUNDS on the steering wheel.
What the FUCK. MOVE it --
They can’t hear the siren
because of the music --
What are we gonna DO?
THE LIMO’S BACK DOOR
Opens. A tall, thin ROCK MUSICIAN (20’s),
dressed like an Edwardian dandy FLIES OUT.
Projectile VOMITS a spew of brown slime.
Weaves a little. Shakes his head.
A BANDMATE gets out. Walks over.
Checks to see if he’s okay.
IN THE AMBULANCE
Kelsey looks at Kasper.
Gimme the mike to the PA.
Kasper grabs it.
Offers it to her.
She leans over the seat.
SNATCHES IT from his hand.
CLICKS it on.
NEAR THE GATE
Bandmate tries to pull Edwardian
back in the limo,
but the rocker still looks shaky.
Hey, DANDY WARHOL.
Get the FUCK back in the vehicle and MOVE IT.
We’ve got an EMERGENCY here.
A man is DYING --
They WHIP their heads in her direction.
Freak out. SCRAMBLE back in. SLAM the door.
The limo TAKES OFF like a rocket.
IN THE AMBULANCE
Kasper puts the car into gear.
Starts following the limo.
Good work, boss.
PUSH IN ON Kelsey’s face.
It's only rock and roll, but I steal it --
