Summary

This is the opening scene for a Script I've just started, It's starts of vaguely slow, but I hope it will get better. It's basically about a boy who get's taken to a different time/dimension after his dad is murdered. Also i'm looking for names of the two main characters, and for the series.

The Forgotten

EPISODE 1, SCENE 1

EXT. HOUSE RENOVATION SITE. DAY.

The scene unveils across a backwoods, rustic village, before having a run-down house come into view. Workmen can be seen working in various areas, a row of vans clogs up the drive, at the rear of the house two of the workmen can be heard arguing. They are father and son. MICHAEL, 20, is sitting on a ladder, whilst KEVIN, 46, is standing in front of him.

 

MICHAEL (SHOUTS)

 

I don’t really care if you put it their last night dad, it’s not there now!

KEVIN (SHOUTS)

 

If I find it I’m docking you a day’s pay!

MICHAEL (SHOUTS)

 

Oh you can fuck right off with that!

KEVIN

What did you say?

MICHAEL

You heard what I said.

KEVIN

You know what, go home, come back with a better attitude, you’ve lost todays pay and yesterdays an’ all, and If you don’t like it…

- Kevin starts to walk away, Michael jumps of the ladder; they start to move around the house. -

 

KEVIN

… Go find another job.

MICHAEL

You’re havin’ a laugh, aren’t you?

- They reach the front of the house. -

KEVIN

In fact...

- Kevin leans through the front door and pauses for effect. -

KEVIN (SHOUTS)

…Lads! Drinks on me!

- Kevin looks back to Michael -

KEVIN

Start heading the pub, I’ll meet you when I’ve dealt with this little shite.

WORKMAN 1 (SHOUTS O.S.)

Alright Bossman.

MICHAEL (MUMBLES)

What a shitty nickname.

WORKMAN 2 (O.S)

Nice one Bossman.

- Michael starts to do impressions of the Workmen, as they leave the house, WORKMAN 1 reaches over and ruffles Michael’s hair -

WORKMAN 1

Cheer up you miserable little git.

- 11 Workmen climb into the vans and start to drive out of sight. -

 

 

MICHAEL

What dicks.

KEVIN

Shut up, it’s not their fault you’re acting like a self-righteous kid.

MICHAEL

Why... Because I couldn’t find your’ tool bag.

KEVIN

No because you gave up looking after two shitty minutes, because for some god damn reason, you think you’ll get special treatment just because I’m in charge.

MICHAEL (SHOUTS)

How? By letting you little crew treat me like shit, I’ve had enough. Two fucking months I’ve put up with it, not anymore, I’m done.

KEVIN (SCREAMS)

You’re done, did I have to take you on? No! But mummy was complaining because little Michael was sat around the house, wasting his life. Did I have to put you on the best damn wage of any one your age, because I felt a glimmer of remorse for missing parts of your childhood? No! But I did, to try and give you a future that is worth living for! So go home and I’m done, as far as I’m concerned I should have wiped you down the toilet! He’s you’re pay now stay away.

MICHAEL

Three Hundred poxy fucking quid? No, I want what I’m owed. It’s almost double that!

KEVIN

I said I’m keeping today’s and yesterday’s pay.

- The screen closes in on Michaels face, he blinks a small, faint CRACK can be heard then a HEARTBEAT starts to echo in, increasing in volume, there’s a few seconds pause and Michael runs to his van, he pulls a bag of pill’s out a takes 4 of them, his hands start to shake, he looks at his hand, turns it over two times, suddenly Kevin screams a cry of great anguish off camera -

 

 

MICHAEL (SCREAMS IN PANIC)

Dad… Dad!

- Michael gazes in horror, as an invisible force appears to hack through Kevin’s stomach, the sound of the heart beat is almost deafening, Michael Fall’s to the floor, unable to move, in time to see Kevin, getting swept backwards and having his chest crushed, Michael can be heard crying between the sounds of the heart beats. A shadow figure then passes by him as he falls unconscious -
