FADE IN:

EXT. ORNATE FOUNTAIN. MT. OLYMPUS - DAY

ZEUS stands facing the fountain; his wife, HERA, sitting on its edge. Zeus waves his hand over the fountain. Images of the Beijing Olympic Games appear in the water.

ZEUS
Just in time.

HERA
Archery?

ZEUS
The semifinals.
(exasperated)
How could he miss? This is his chance for a medal!

HERA
There is no better archer than you, my love.

Zeus is intensely fixed on the archer placing last of the four finalists.

ZEUS
Hera, I'll be back in time for dinner.

HERA
Where are you going?

In a flash, Zeus is gone.

EXT. THE OLYMPIC GREEN ARCHERY FIELD. BEIJING - DAY

Zeus strides through the crowds, disguised as a spectator. He shakes his head as he watches the ARCHER continue to lose. Zeus disappears; the Archer shivering as an unusual sensation overtakes him.

As the Archer releases his arrow, it makes a dead-on bullseye. He waits his next turn confidently, regally. He makes another bullseye, then another, finally, a Robin Hood and wins the Gold medal.

INT. MEDALS PODIUM - NIGHT

After the medals ceremony, the MEDIA flank him; a female JOURNALIST holds a microphone to his mouth.

JOURNALIST
I've never seen anything like your performance!
(grinning)
You were like a god out there.

ARCHER
Well, I had some help.

JOURNALIST
From?

ARCHER
(as he steps intimately closer)
We can talk about it over a quiet dinner.

JOURNALIST

Zeus. It's Hera.

FADE TO BLACK

This is exactly what my husband wants to happen to him-right about the time deer season starts. Very neat Petra!! Makes me wonder did Zeus know it was her? I guess thats up to the reader.

i beati said...

Joyce Ellen Davis said...

Actually, my REAL first choice was Angelica Houston. But I felt OBLIGATED now to vote for Sophia1

Mama Zen said...

This is really cool!

Jay said...

I think I see Brian Blessed as Zeus. Hera? Mmm... How about Judi Dench?

Fun!

Jules said...

I can so see Angie and Brad in these roles too.....

Boy do the gods ever have a fun life...the Olympics! While away on holidays, I actually saw someone's garden slope where they had trimmed/shaped a low hedge into the Olympic rings! Even with the green, it was unmistakable.

I was tempted to vote *other* for the journalist especially after having recently enjoyed another run of Entrapment on tv. I swear they play these movies over and over. Kevin Costner's Waterworld seems to be another italian network fave! ;-)

That darn Zeus just can't sit still...where is Europa these days anyway?
This week I would have to say john Edwards would make a fine candidate as Zeus...his acting skills seem to be on the rise.

morton said...

I voted Diane Lane for Helena, but I voted other for Zeus. I keep thinking Kelsey Grammar.

Rowena said...

Ok Petra...I had to give some thought as to what italian actors/actresses I would suggest so here goes:

Older actor: Sergio Castellitto (well he's not really that old)
Older actress: Ornella Muti (I was a fan of hers since Flash Gordon with Sam Jones!)

Mid-age actor: Raol Bova
Mid-age actress: Monica Bellucci

Child actor: N/A
Child actress: N/A

Silent Night

(1)

Silent night! Holy night!

All is calm, all is bright!

Round yon virgin mother and child!

Holy Infant, so tender and mild,

Sleep in heavenly peace,

Sleep in heavenly peace.

(2)

Silent night! Holy night!

Shepherds quake at the sight!

Glories stream from heaven afar,

Heav'nly hosts sing Alleluia;

Christ the Savior is born!

Christ the Savior is born!

(3)

Silent night! Holy night!

Son of God, love's pure light

Radiant beams from thy holy face,

With the dawn of redeeming grace,

Jesus, Lord, at thy birth, ,

Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.
