TITLE CARD "BOSTON - 2077"
EXT. BOSTON STREET - NIGHT
Newly shot footage of the Boston skyline at night. The full moon lights up the sky. The Mass Fusion building and Trinity Tower are clearly visible. Pan down to street level - the hustle and bustle of Boston at night. Cars, people, etc.
INT. THE RUSTY ANCHOR PUB - BACKROOM
A ceiling fan spins over a small card table. Three men and two women - all gangsters - sit quietly, contemplating their cards. A pile of chips sits in the middle of the table. This is clearly a high-stakes backroom card game.
Glad you think so.
Okay. Fine. I'm all in.
Bald Beatty pushes all of his chips into the middle of the table, making the pile even larger.
Actually... you all fold!
Everyone at the table looks around in a panic. Nobody knows where the voice came from. But they recognize the voice as being from the Silver Shroud.
No! It can't be!
Oh, but it can!
The lights go out. Suddenly, the room is illuminated only by the fire from the barrel of a machinegun. It's the Silver Shroud. He appeared, as if by nowhere, and has sprayed the room with bullets.
In the flashes, the different gangsters can be seen falling over, almost as if it's stop motion.
The lights come back on. All of the gangsters lie dead. The Silver Shroud stands next to the table, machinegun smoking. He looks directly at the camera and speaks.
Feany Five. Death has come for you... and I am its Shroud!
