Mild Bill

Directed by Andrew Dominik
Cinematography by: Roger Deakins


Mild Bill follows the true story of L.A. traffic cop - turned contract killer, Bill Leasure (Sam Rockwell). Bill Leasure is known around the force as a gentle creature, never getting into fights, never being rude, always just happy to be there. In 17 years he has never asked for a promotion, and seems quite content with living as a simple traffic cop, living off of his prosecutor wife (Kate Beckinsale)'s salary. In reality, however, Bill Leasure has a mind for crime. Leasure, along with his favorite hitman, Dean Winebaugh (Colin Farrell), and newbie, Dennis France (Stephen Graham), take hefty sums of cash to carry our hits in the L.A. area. Sloppy moves turn the heat on Bill, as his superiors in the force start to investigate the crimes. Well known detective "Jigsaw John" St. John begins to take special interest, and Leasure soon finds that it is difficult to contain all of your efforts, and keep your men concentrated.





Sam Rockwell as Bill Leasure

Quote:
Content with the illusion of him as a simple, need-to-go-nowhere traffic cop, Bill Leasure lives an alter ego as one of L.A.'s biggest criminal masterminds. Bill, along with his crew of killers, carry out expensive hits in the area. Later on, Bill even gets involved in a multi-million dollar yacht theft ring. Bill does all of this under the nose of his wife, Betsy, a Los Angeles prosecutor. Things get more complicated when those who work for him begin getting sloppy. Bill is a very calculating man, but can be viciously ruthless when given the motivation for it. Bill's greatest talent, however, may be his ability to lie, and live a lie himself. In the force, Bill is jokingly referred to as "Mild Bill", for his laid back attitude and innocence. In the LAPD, Bill has been just one rank above rookie for his entire 17 year career.




Kate Beckinsale as Betsy Mogul-Leasure

Quote:
Betsy is Bill Leasure's second wife, but the two seem to genuinely care for each other. There isn't a lot of trust there, but they could always overcome that. Betsy is now aware of her husband's crimes, she only knows that he is up to something. She assumes that he is out drinking, or maybe even cheating on her, but she could have never suspected what he was really out all night doing. Betsy is also fairly well known in the lawyer-sphere. She is a successful L.A. city prosecutor, known for being no-nonsense, and getting people what they deserve.




Colin Farrell as Dean Winebaugh

Quote:
Dean is a lifetime criminal, befriended later in his life by Bill Leasure. Dean now works for Bill, as his favorite hitman. Dean is a very good killer, with his own private arsenal. Dean would probably be a flawless hitman if he always used his brain. When it came to getting a job done, and not getting caught, he always came out on top, but he lacks basic common sense sometimes. Things get more complicated for Dean when he starts sleeping with Paulette de los Reyes, the wife of one of their contract-givers.




Stephen Graham as Dennis France

Quote:
Dennis is a welder, and an up-and-coming criminal in L.A. he joins Bill's crew a few months prior to the start of the film. Unbeknownst to Bill, Dennis is still not completely comfortable with the idea of killing another person for money. He is asked to carry out the deed for the first time with the murder of Anne Smith. Dennis is later approached by Detective St. John's men, and is offered a deal to flip on Bill Leausre. Dennis is also a very smart guy, and is good at getting what he wants.




Joaquin Phoenix as Tony de los Reyes

Quote:
Tony is a man of plots. He is constantly getting his hands dirty to get ahead. Tony and his wife, Paulette, approach Bill Leasure and Dean Winebaugh with a contract, a contract to kill Gilberto, his stepfather and the owner of their business. Tony is satisfied with the killing for a while, but approaches Dean Winebaugh to kill someone else. He tells Dean that he believes that his wife is cheating on him with someone, and demands that Dean kill both Paulette, as well as the man she's cheating on if possible. Dean finds himself in an awkward position.




Violante Placido as Paulette de los Reyes

Quote:
She has a strained relationship with her husband Tony. She married him because of his ambition, but was starting to find his only redeeming quality to become tiresome. She is an accomplice in the hit on Gilberto, and it is in that meet that she meets Dean Winebaugh. She and Dean begin a relationship behind her husband's back. Although he begins to have his suspicions. Dominik describes Dean and Paulette's relationship as, "really, the only honest one of the film,".




J.K. Simmons as John P. "Jigsaw John" St. John

Quote:
Detective St. John is one of the most respected members of the L.A.P.D., by both his colleagues and the public. St. John is trying to figure out who is behind recent connected killings. He believes Dean Winebaugh (Colin Farrell) to be the mastermind, but as clues unravel, Bill Leasure (Sam Rockwell), a fellow cop, and the man responsible for the killings, gets keeps a wary eye. Bill becomes worried when an officer as renounced as St. John, takes a liking to his case.




Vincent Regan as Tom King

Quote:
Described as a cop with poker-faced authority. Detective St. John makes Tom King his right hand man in the investigations into Bill Leasure's murder. King, as well as his partner, Hopper, are made responsible for tracking down Dennis France, bringing him in, and trying to convince him to flip on who he works for.




Jaimie Alexander as Lyndsey Hopper

Quote:
Tom King's partner, a young cop. She works with him to talk to Dennis France, and convince him to give up information. While Tom King prefers confrontation, Lyndsey sees herself the smooth-talker.




Jamie Hector as Ralph Gerard

Quote:
Ralph Gerard is Bill Leasure's partner on the force. He isn't aware of the extent of his crimes, but he doesn't really try to snoop to much into his business. Gerard himself is guilty of filing false insurance claims, so the two have a don't ask, don't tell understanding. Gerard has a great deal of trust and respect for Bill, as over the years, Bill had stuck with him through some of the racism within the force.




Mark Addy as Robert Kuns

Quote:
Robert is the man that gets Bill involved in the yacht thieving buisness. A man with a history of robbing banks, Robert Kuns is kind of a goofy person, and likes to present himself as a playboy, the opposite of Bill's style. He also sees himself as invincible. The two of them come to an understanding however, and successfully steal almost 15 luxury yachts, an unheard of feat.




Adam Scott as Jerry France

Quote:
Jerry France, the brother of Dennis France (Stephen Graham). Jerry plays a small, but important role in the film as the domino that sets off the fall. When Jerry is brought in by the cops for writing bad checks, he mentions that his brother may be working for a dangerous man.




Mark Margolis as Gilberto Cervantes

Quote:
One of the victims of Bill Leasure's crew. Gilberto is the unfortunate owner of a business that Tony de los Reyes wants to inherit, so he gets the hit put on him.




Kevin O'Rourke as Art Smith

Quote:
Art Smith hires Bill to kill his wife, Anne. He pays a great deal for the deed. He is a business man at heart, and expects that no strings be attached in the deal. Clean murder, as Art finds out, is no easy thing.




Tea Leoni as Anne Smith

Quote:
Another unfortunate victim of Bill Leasure's crew. She is killed in her salon by Dennis France.




Malin Akerman as Stacey

Quote:
Bill Leasure first meets Stacey when he pulls her over for rolling through a Stop sign. He pulls the charm on her, lets her off with a warning, and then successfully scores a date. Bill sees Stacey a couple times, and even brings her aboard on a cruise (aboard a stolen yacht)

Story:
Begin credits of the main characters in order,
A high school semifinal game in progress,
Duvall is shaking hands with a state trooper and engaged in conversation,
He's a former 30 year head coach of a high school football team who won 3 state championship games,
Three of his former QB have won the Heisman and several of his former team players have played in the pros,
He is now in his first year as the USC QB coach, they just had a 12-2 season, #5 ranking and will be playing in the Rose Bowl,
Chad's team doesn't win the game, however he throws 5 TD passes,
His poise and strong arm gets the attention of Duvall,
Duvall then approaches Chad, shakes his hand and says that he had played a heck of a game,
He says thank you to Duvall,
Chad goes home and his father is drunk,
His father is a Vietnam veteran who had dreams of playing pro football until he was drafted,
Chad is the only child and was born after his father had returned home from the war,
His mother has been in a psychiatric hospital since Chad was 7 after years of physical and verbal abuse from his father,
Chad later gets a recruitment letter from USC,
He accepts and he's happy to get well away from his father and Oklahoma,
Arriving at the USC campus not very touted, he did not make the field until his junior year,
Duvall is the continual mentor to Chad and he starts all 15 games his senior year at USC,
He then leads USC to a National Championship and undefeated season,
Duvall does retire after reaching this success and wishes Chad well in the pros, he is now 60 years of age,
Chad is 3rd in the voting for the Heisman,
He's the 7th pick in the draft and the 2nd quarterback selected,
Once again the pattern repeated and Chad didn't make the field until his 4th season,
He thought it must be somebody who has confidence in his abilities,
Chad quarterbacks his team into 8-8 in his 4th season after being named the starter when they had been 3-7,
This was rewarded with a brand new contract and gained the starting gig the next season after training camp,
In the mean time FBI agent Chenowith was looking into a series of unsolved murders in the Midwest,
FBI criminal profiler Malkovich had reached a conclusion that a specific murder didn't fit the series,
That victim was a young assistant to a known fashion designer in New York and the others were not professional women,
Each of the victims were murdered by strangulations and the bodies were dumped with no real apparent attempt to cover it,
The proximity of the area to a main highway and hunting grounds would certainly mean that he would cover if the killer didn't want the body to be found,
This meant he was either in a rush, wanted these bodies found, was psychologically unstable or didn't know the area,
Malkovich thought 2 or more of these being true and we've got the same killer,
Three or more and we've got a different murderer,
Meanwhile in the next two seasons Chad throws for above average numbers and gets his team into the playoffs then gets suspended after his DUI before his 7th season,
Agent Chenowith notes the murders in the Midwest have stopped,
She also discovers that a murder in Oklanoma thought as being connected with the others, shares the same characteristics of the murder of the fashion designer's assistant,
FBI Director Sheen decides to assign FBI agent Neeson to investigate the murder of the fashion designer's assistant and goes to New York,
Chenowith investigates the Oklahoma murder,
Neeson is a fearless FBI agent with a tenacity which gets results,
Chad's 7th season began on the bench,
He followed that up with his team going 10-6 during their season to make the playoffs,
However a second DUI after the season has Chad on list of players they make available for the expansion draft,
The LA expansion NFL team selects Chad in their expansion draft and selects the new Heisman winning QB Hemsworth in the 1st round of the NFL draft,
Chad accepts a contract with the LA expansion team,
Agent Neeson discovers the fashion designer's assistant who was murdered had went missing when visit relatives,
Her body being found in proximity with a major highway and not with any cover meant the killer could have been travelling also,
Chenowith discovers the victim in Oklahoma had ties with a small town and had also once dated Chad Gooding,
She investigates the Chad Gooding angle further and discovers most of Chad's younger life,
His father is not alive anymore, however the mother is alive and Agent Chenowith attempts to speak with her only to find she's in a psychiatric hospital,
That same psychiatric hospital happens to be located a mile from where the body of the fashion designer's assistant was discovered,
Agent Chenowith meets with Agent Neeson to discuss their info,
Their info is given to criminal profiler Malkovich and he concludes that a certain profile would be their guy,
FBI Director Sheen is open to every angle and yet incredulous,
However he trusts his agents and dispatches both to keep continuing every angle of the murder investigations,
Chad Gooding is the starter for the LA expansion team in their first year and he's on a roll,
7-0 record and 23 TD along with only 3 INT already,
His confidence and charming personality along with his good looks has made Chad LA's newest celebrity,
People and the other magazines have linked Chad with almost every celebrity in town,
Chad gets often asked the questions like why you're still not married,
A series of kidnappings in the LA area during the previous 5 months has piqued the interest of the LAPD and Chief Nicholson,
He says it's not unusual to have kidnappings in LA like in every large city, however to have this many unsolved during his tenure as the chief is quite unusual,
Chief Nicholson assigns detective Hawke and detective Wahlberg to investigate,
The only info in some of the kidnappings was a description of the kidnapper,
Chad has the LA team rolling into the playoffs at 12-0 and winning much unlike any expansion team in their first season,
His celebrity status increases and Joy Behar says that he's not a married man during the opening segments of a show,
A news report of the unsolved kidnappings is shown on the locker room tv after the LA team gets to 14-2 and clinching the #1 seed in the playoffs,
The next scene shows a young woman chained and shiverring in a shallow pit,
Camera pans to a second young woman also chained in another small pit right next to her,
The basement of a house is shown and the camera broadens to reveal Chad standing above the pit inside the basement,
A scene shows how Chad kidnapped Kirsten and had brought her to his basement,
The second scene shows how Chad had also kidnapped Hayden in almost the same manner,
He wrapped up his arm and pretended that he couldn't lift a very light, yet somewhat awkward package into his vehicle,
Once the victim would put the package of Chad's into the vehicle, he hits the woman in the back of her head and shoves her inside his car trunk,
Always just within 15 minutes driving distance on the highway,
Director Sheen asks Neeson and Chenowith to examine the evidence and notifies the FBI's LA office to put Chad under surveillance,
It's very much implied that Chad has been violent towards each of the women and shown in the same manner in keeping with any R rated films,
Scenes of his father being violent with Chad when he was a child are also shown each time he enters the basement to be violent towards each of the women,
Before the agents can keep a watch on Chad, he uses Kirsten to kidnap Emma from a shopping area in LA,
Chad now will allow Kirsten to kind of have more freedom in the locked basement,
He trusts her and wanted to have somebody to watch the others when he's playing in the playoffs,
The FBI surveillance reveals not a thing and just his normal activities of going to practice,
LAPD Chief Nicholson gets wind of the FBI activity,
He then sends Hawke and Wahlberg to investigate Chad's activity and implies to news people to say they have a lead,
Sheen hears the comments of Nicholson and asks Malkovich for his opinion,
Malkovich says that it's possible the LA kidnappings and the 2 murders are linked,
He thinks it's possible that Chad might have a woman held captive and that's why their surveillance has not yielded anything,
Sheen says that it's unlikely,
Malkovich then says that nobody knew what Vick was doing at his residence either,
LA's team will be playing in the Super Bowl,
Chad is fully confident that Kirsten will take care of his other girls for awhile and she assisted in capturing Emma,
She now very much thinks of Chad as her boyfriend,
He arrives in Miami with the LA football team for the Super Bowl, Kirsten is in charge of the 2 girls and they have conversation with each other,
The sunday just before the game is nonstop Chad features on ESPN,
There's always been a huge tv in the locked basement to watch Chad when he's away,
Kirsten says for Emma to just relax and that sunday is the day of rest around here,
Hayden questions to Kirsten as to why Chad would kidnap Emma and also suggests that he's going to kill Kirsten when he returns,
She then convinces Kirsten to free herself from the basement and she goes to LAPD,
They don't really think she's being honest and she keeps saying my boyfriend this or that,
Kirsten repeats her story twice and they go to Chad's residence and free the 2 chained women,
The FBI office in Miami is notified just as the Super Bowl is starting,
Agent Neeson and Chenowith are already in Miami at the orders of FBI Director Sheen.
Chenowith has been posing as a reporter and Neeson is with his new wife as VIP who also get field access,
Both Neeson and Chenowith get the alright for the capture of Chad based on this new info,
The Miami police department will be assisting,
Agent Neeson's wife has been saying she's having some dreams and questions if her husband is really in Miami for the Super Bowl,
The Super Bowl begins and Chad throws a touchdown pass to make the score tied at halftime,
LA doesn't win the game and the larger story is Chad disappearing,
He didn't play and wasn't on the bench after halftime,
Montage of clips in succession:
TMZ-reports that Chad Gooding was arrested for murder at halftime of the Super Bowl,
Jim Rome-the story on every sports fan's mind,
Elisabeth Hasselbeck-I know about NFL quarterbacks,
Mark Schlereth-you really think you know Chad Gooding that well,
Stephen A Smith-the DUI's and suspensions,
Skip Bayless-Chad Gooding did not murder those women and I will bet my life on it,
Nancy Grace-FBI arrest in the case of the kidnapped California women,
LAPD Chief Nicholson parades the 3 missing women in front of tv cameras and demands that Chad be tried in LA, he also credits the LAPD for the arrest info,
FBI Director Sheen compromises some and the case is held in LA federal court,
He's charged with 2 counts of murder, 3 counts of kidnapping and other various,
Chad has the very well known Baldwin as his attorney who would speak on several tv shows,
Baldwin says that Kirsten was a girlfriend of Chad's and was playing sex games with these women,
Harvey Levin-trial of the century,
Levin's assistant-MJ,
Harvey Levin-ha yeah right,
Another Levin assistant-OJ,
Harvey Levin-bigger than OJ,
US Attorney Sarandon is speaking with reporter and gives a quick no comment and joins US Attorney Thompson in front of the courthouse,
US Attorney Thompson says we're confident that we've got the right person and will get a conviction,
They both enter the courthouse,
Chad Gooding and his attorney stop in front of the courthouse for the reporters,
He faces the reporters and they watch Chad as he looks at a beautiful woman walking past,
He says that you guys always ask why I've never been married,
Chad and his attorney walk up the courtroom stairs,
The film screen says in text of Chad Gooding being convicted of 2 counts of murder and 3 counts of kidnapping,
It names the federal institution and says he was sentenced to more than 400 years,
The full film credits roll as well.

I think I'm going to put up the final thread on Friday, hopefully that works for everyone. I didn't want to put it off too long. Remember, if you can't come up with a whole story, at least just throw together a 1 paragraph description and a character list to give people an idea. It was cool to get close to a 20 person draft again, thanks guys.

Yeah. I'll probably be putting up the thread sometime Saturday morning/afternoon, so I guess technically get it done around then. But if you want a guarantee that your movie will make it in, send it to me by Friday night.




also, about my film, every single one of those characters are/were real people (except for Stacey, who represents numerous real women). A lot of research went into this one. Very Happy

Yea, I just gave away some tidbits to get people interested. I didn't want to give anything away on the plot. It's just too good of a story to do that.

Director: James Cameron

Plot
The film opens as the Pillar of Autumn exits slipspace near a mysterious ring-shaped space station, called "Halo" by the enemy, the Covenant. A Covenant fleet attacks and heavily damages the Pillar of Autumn. Captain Keyes initiates "The Cole Protocol", a procedure designed to prevent the Covenant from learning the location of Earth. While Keyes prepares to land the ship on Halo, the Master Chief and Cortana escape via an escape pod, which crash lands on the ring. Cortana and the Chief are the only ones who survive the impact of the escape pod crash.

Keyes survives the Autumn's crash landing, but is captured by the Covenant. The Master Chief and Cortana gather human survivors and rescue Captain Keyes, who is imprisoned aboard the Covenant ship Truth and Reconciliation. Once rescued, Keyes orders the Master Chief to beat the Covenant to Halo's control center and to discover its purpose. The Master Chief and Cortana travel to a map room called the Silent Cartographer, which leads them to the control room. There, Cortana enters the systems and, discovering something urgent, suddenly sends the Master Chief to find Captain Keyes while she stays behind. While searching for his commander, the Master Chief learns that the Covenant have accidentally released the Flood, a parasitic alien race capable of spreading itself by overwhelming and infesting other sentient life-forms. Keyes falls victim to them while looking for a cache of weapons. The release of the Flood prompts Halo's AI monitor, 343 Guilty Spark, to recruit the Master Chief in retrieving the Index, a device that will activate Halo and prevent the Flood from spreading beyond the facility.

After the Master Chief retrieves and prepares to use the Index, Cortana re-appears and warns him against the activation. She has discovered that Halo's defense system is a weapon designed to kill all sentient life in the galaxy, which the Flood requires to spread, a revelation which Guilty Spark confirms.

Faced with this information, the Master Chief and Cortana decide to destroy Halo to prevent its activation. While fighting the Flood, the Covenant, and Guilty Spark's Sentinels, Cortana discovers that the best way to accomplish this is to cause the crashed Pillar of Autumn to self-destruct. However, Captain Keyes' authorization is required to destroy the Autumn, forcing the Chief and Cortana to return to the now-Flood-infested Truth and Reconciliation to search for him. By the time that they reach Keyes, however, he has been infected beyond the point of no return by the Flood. The Master Chief retrieves Keyes' neural implants directly from his brain and retreats to the Autumn, where Cortana activates the ship's self-destruct sequence. However, 343 Guilty Spark reappears and deactivates the countdown, discovering the record of human history in the process. The Master Chief manually destabilizes the Pillar of Autumn's fusion reactors, and he and Cortana narrowly escape the destruction of the ring via a fighter.

Setting
Halo: Combat Evolved takes place in a science fiction universe. The overpopulation of Earth and the realization of faster-than-light travel have caused the human race to colonize other planets. A keystone of these efforts is the planet Reach, an interstellar naval yard and a hub of scientific and military activity. A secret military endeavor, dubbed the SPARTAN Project, was established on Reach to create an army of biologically engineered, cyborg "super-soldiers". Twenty-seven years before the beginning of the film, a technologically advanced collective of alien races, the Covenant, began to attack human settlements, declaring humanity an affront to their gods. The United Nations Space Command experienced a series of crushing defeats, and, although the super-soldiers of the SPARTAN-II Project fought effectively against the Covenant, they were too few in numbers to turn the tides of war.

To prepare for a mission to discover the location of the Covenant's homeworld, SPARTAN-II soldiers were recalled to Reach for armor upgrades. Two days before the mission was to begin, Covenant forces attacked Reach and destroyed the colony. A starship, the Pillar of Autumn, survived the onslaught with the lead SPARTAN-II, Master Chief, onboard. The ship initiated a random jump to slipspace (similar to hyperspace), hoping to lead the enemy away from Earth. The film begins with the Pillar of Autumn encountering Halo.

The titular Halo is an enormous, ring-shaped artificial space station/planet, which has a diameter of ten thousand kilometers. Halo sits at a Lagrange point between a planet and its moon. Centrifugal force created by the rotation of the station provides the ring's gravity.

In the end, it wasn't guns or bombs that defeated the aliens. It was the humblest of all God's creatures, the Tyrannosaurus Rex.
