JAWS - Darkest Waters Script

by N.

JAWS: DARKEST WATERS is a sequel, principally, to ‘Jaws’ , but acknowledges de facto the events in ‘Jaws 2′.

In as much as ‘Jaws 3′ and ‘Jaws - The Revenge’ refer to the character of Martin Brody subsequent to the events of the first two movies, and creates ongoing storylines for members of the Brody family subsequent to the events of the first two movies, these subsequent events will be treated as not having occurred for the purposes of the JAWS: DARKEST WATERS storyline.

BLACK SCREEN

The SOUND of a WHIPPING WIND, blowing off the sea.

FADE IN:

1 HIGH / LONG AMITY CEMETERY EXT. DAY

It is a cold, crisp, brilliantly lit Spring day. Amity Cemetery is situated atop a bluff overlooking the ocean.

We are joining a nearly completed burial service. The HIGH / LONG SHOT is DOWN THROUGH the newly budding branches of a tall tree, TOWARDS a funeral party of fifteen people (MOURNERS), their backs to us, who stand in front of a freshly dug grave. From this distance, A TOUCH OUT OF FOCUS, none of the MOURNERS are recognizable to us.

A PRIEST, an open Bible in his hand, FACES TOWARDS CAMERA from the far side of the grave. Behind him, the crystal blue ocean - filling the BG panorama of the SHOT - twinkles beyond the edge of the high bluff.

Everyone’s clothing and hair is blown by the crisp wind.

As the PRIEST speaks, so the CAMERA begins to MOVE LOWER DOWN (STILL SHOOTING THROUGH THE BRANCHES OF) the tree.

PRIESTAnd so we say farewell to Laurence Vaughan:husband, father, mayor, neighbour, friend.

The long journey is over. Rest in peace.

The PRIEST closes his Bible. The MOURNERS stand in reverential silence for a moment, then they and the PRIEST start to disperse: all except a man and woman, who continue to stand by the grave.

2 START LONG: MOVE IN

CAMERA MOVES IN FROM LONG TOWARDS the backs of the man and the woman who stand by the grave: he stares down into the grave.

The woman puts her arm comfortingly around the man’s shoulder, and turns her face towards him. We see now, that it is ELLEN BRODY (aged in her mid-sixties).

ELLENAre you ok?

The man does not turn to ELLEN; he continues to stare downwards. He nods slowly. We recognise Martin BRODY’s voice - now in his late sixties.

BRODY sounds distant, lost in thought.

BRODYI’m ok. Look after Eleanor, I won’t be long.

ELLEN continues to look at her husband. She seems sad. She nods, turns, and begins to walk away.

3 HIGH / DOWN - TO GRAVE

FROM THIS ANGLE we now see into the gave in which the coffin lies. ELLEN is walking away OUT OF SHOT. BRODY - seen properly for the first time - continues to stare at the coffin. He looks old and tired.

4 FROM GROUND LEVEL UP ALONG CEMETERY PATH

The ANGLE is from the bottom of a gravestone, up the path. BRODY walks along the path TOWARDS CAMERA. He is looking ahead, but as he nears the (CAMERA POSITION) gravestone, he glances towards it, gives a sad, resigned sort of smile, and stops.

5 BRODY’S P.O.V

The gravestone reads:

Samuel John Quint - Born 1923, Died 1975

‘I must down to sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky.’

6 MED.CLOSE - BRODY

He stares down impassively for a moment, then quite unexpectedly a look of real anguish passes over his face. He sighs and shakes his head.

BRODY(softly, to himself - he speaks ironically)The journey’s over…

THE CAMERA MOVES AROUND WITH BRODY (CONTINUING TO FACE HIM), as he turns to face the sea. He has a look of unfathomable intensity, as he stares piercingly towards the ocean.
