1 EXT. RAIN FOREST, OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK, WASHINGTON - DAWN 1
Moss-draped. Shadow-drenched. Tortured tree trunks twist
upward, reaching for rare sunlight.
BELLA (V.O.)
I’d never given much thought to how
I would die...
Suddenly, every creature in the forest is deadly silent. Neither
bird, beast nor insect make a noise. A predator is near.
Then, in the distance, hear a tiny SNICK - a twig snapping.
Abruptly, we’re on the move. Fast.
UNKNOWN POV - MOVING
Trees start whipping past us at a dizzying speed, branches
are dodged with preternatural agility. And we’re speeding
up, chasing something. It's exhilarating. Terrifying.
Finally, up ahead, we get the first glimpse of our prey --
A DEER
-- running for its life as it darts through this maze of a
forest. It sprints forward, but we gain on it. Beyond the deer,
SEE the forest’s edge ahead, white sunlight glowing against the
trees. The buck races for the light. We're just behind it,
about to emerge from the shadowy darkness --
The deer LEAPS into the light in a high arc, hovering (suddenly
SLOW MOTION) against the WHITE GLARE of the sun... then BAM!
The deer abruptly plummets out of frame at an unnatural angle,
leaving the WHITE GLARE to fill the screen. HOLD ON WHITENESS --
BELLA (V.O.)
But dying in the place of someone I
love seems like a good way to go...
-- Then into the WHITENESS steps the face of --
2 ISABELLA SWAN, 17 2
Eyes closed against the sunlight, absorbing its rays. Long,
dark hair frames alabaster skin. She’s a vulnerable,
introverted, imperfect beauty.
BELLA (V.O.)
... So I can’t bring myself to
regret the decision that brought me
here to die...
The background comes into focus as we realize we’re now in --2.
EXT. SCOTTSDALE, AZ - DAY
Bella stands at the end of a cul-de-sac on the desert’s edge.
The sun blazes behind her -- she bends down and carefully
scoops a tiny BARREL CACTUS into a clay pot.
BELLA (V.O.)
... The decision to leave home.
She stares at the cactus in a state of reverie, until --
BLONDE #1 (O.S.)
Bye, Bella!
BELLA’S POV - McMansion ACROSS THE STREET
Three tanned, athletic, blonde GIRLS hop into a convertible
Mercedes. Their flawless, bought-and-paid for beauty contrasts
with Bella's pale naturalness. They wave.
BLONDE #1
Good luck at your new school!
They ADLIB superficial good wishes, “Don’t forget to write;”
“We’ll miss you.” Bella waves back, sweetly, but
halfheartedly as she steps off the curb --
BELLA
Have a good...
-- and trips. When she rights herself, they’re already gone.
BELLA
... life.
Clearly, not close friends. Bella’s grown-up demeanor and
innate intelligence become apparent as --
BELLA’S MOTHER, RENE, mid 30’s -- exits their house -- it’s
low rent for this ritzy neighborhood. Rene is eclectic,
scattered, anxious, more best friend than parent. She
thrusts a cell phone at Bella.
RENE
It won’t work again, baby.
BELLA
You put it on hold.
RENE
I did?
BELLA
Look. You also called Mexico.
Rene pushes her playfully, they laugh.3.
RENE
I’ll figure it out. You gotta be able
to reach me and Phil on the road - I
love saying that - on the road.
BELLA
Very romantic.
PHIL, 31, good looking with an athlete’s body, exits the
house, carrying Bella’s three suitcases with ease.
PHIL
If you call crappy motels, backwater
towns and ballpark hot dogs romantic.
He puts his Phoenix Desert Dogs baseball hat on Rene’s head with a
kiss. Phil’s love of Rene reassures Bella. Phil heads to the old
station wagon to load the luggage, while Rene slips her arm
through Bella’s, clinging to her as they walk to car.
RENE
Now, you know if you change your
mind, I’ll race back here from
wherever the game is.
But Rene’s strained expression tells us what a great
sacrifice that would be. Bella forces a smile.
BELLA
I won’t change my mind, mom.
RENE
You might. You’ve always hated Forks.
BELLA
It’s not about Forks, it’s about
Dad. I mean, two weeks a year, we
barely know each other.
(off Rene’s still worried
look)
Mom, I want to go. I’ll be fine.
But as Rene hugs Bella, we see the truth on BELLA’S FACE -
dread, doubt, regret. Off Bella, struggling to keep her
facade up as she climbs into the back seat of the car...
BEGIN TITLES OVER:
3 BELLA'S POV OUT THE CAR WINDOW - SCOTTSDALE 3
Bella, IPOD earbuds in her ears, gets a last glimpse of the
sparkling malls, chic shoppers, manicured cactus gardens...
PULL UP AND OUT OF THE CAR UNTIL WE’RE -- 4.
4 EXT. ABOVE SCOTTSDALE (AERIAL SHOT) - DAY 4
The McMansions get smaller as we SWEEP OVER the scorched
landscape, baking under a hot sun. Beyond the housing
developments SEE the rocky, dry desert, extending for miles...
Rise HIGHER, and higher still, until finally we’re suspended
within the bright, perfect, blue SKY, with only an occasional
cloud...
Slowly, the clouds start getting more numerous, thicker, darker...
until we’re completely immersed in them... the sun disappearing.
Finally, we EMERGE from the clouds to find below --
5 EXT. WASHINGTON STATE - OLYMPIC PENINSULA (AERIAL SHOT)- DAY5
Nothing but deep, dark, green forests for miles. SWEEP DOWN,
finding the eerily dramatic Lake Crescent. Over it all hangs
the mist from the ever-present cloudy grey sky. Everything
is wet and green and drenched in shade...
FIND A TWO LANE HIGHWAY along which drives A POLICE
CRUISER... PUSH IN on the cruiser until we reach --
THE PASSENGER SIDE WINDOW
Bella looks out, taking in her gloomy new surroundings...
END TITLES.
6 INT. POLICE CRUISER - DAY - WAITING AT LIGHT 6
Bella sits next to her uniformed father, police chief CHARLIE
SWAN, 40's. Taciturn, introverted like Bella. Their strained
silence contrasts Bella’s relationship with her mother. Beat.
CHARLIE
Your hair’s longer.
BELLA
I cut it since last time I saw you.
CHARLIE
Guess it grew out again.
She just nods. Silence.
CHARLIE
How’s your mom?
BELLA
Good.
More silence. Yikes. They pass a SIGN: “The City Of Forks
Welcomes You - Pop. 3246.” Bella sighs.
