ROB HUGHES ADAPTATION AND SCRIPT
Young Richard pulling Simon
by his sur-coat to follow him.SIMON: How fares my favorite royal
nephew on this gloriously fine day?
YOUNG PRINCE RICHARD: Come watch the dancing Bone-Men with me.
FATHER SUPERIOR (V.O.)
Simon and Richard looking
SIMON: Dancing Bone-Men?
YOUNG PRINCE RICHARD: Yes, the Bone-Men. Bone Men!
SIMON: Ah, yes. I see what you mean. What an extraordinary imagination
you have, my young prince.
Richard excitedly points
to the area where the armored knights, with visors lowered, are competing
with one another.
They have the appearance of medieval armor come to life, without
any semblance of actual bodies within them: the dancing Bone-Men.
Close-up on Young Richard looking up at Simon.
YOUNG PRINCE RICHARD: Were you and daddy fighting again?
SIMON: (Sadly) Yes.
Insert (Close-up Richard.)
YOUNG PRINCE RICHARD: Why?
OTS Young Richard looking
up at Simon (MCU Simon).
SIMON: Because...sometimes, powerful men do not always think
alike. They choose to walk down different paths, which they believe will
lead to the same desired goal.

(POV Simon) looking down
at a puzzled Young Richard.
YOUNG PRINCE RICHARD: No.
(2nd balloon): I donít believe I do.
(Long Shot) Simon and Richard
watching armored knights fighting.
(2nd balloon): Iím not sure I do either.
