RIGGS sits in the back of a military-style van. Handcuffed. Inside are all kinds of electronic surveillance equipment and high-tech weaponry. Men in fatigues run the place, speaking in codes and technobabble that only a smarter man might begin to understand.
Coming from the front, a man in a heavy flak jacket sits in front of RIGGS. Long brown hair. Sunglasses. Beard. This is CAPTAIN LUKE VANCE (KURT RUSSELL). VANCE takes out a pack of cigarettes, offers one. RIGGS nods and takes it, awkwardly putting it into his mouth as VANCE lights it and his own.
"You've seen something, haven't you, Riggs?"
"It's been four years, Vance, and this is how you greet me? Handcuffs and a black van? Gun in my back? Where the hell were you when that thing was trying to eat my face?"
"You know as well as I do, Riggs, that we were trying to win a war. Compromises had to be made. You understand. Or at least, we thought you did. It's too bad about what happened."
"I was trying to save those people. They didn't goddamn do anything."
"What do you think happened to those people after we had to quell your riot, Riggs? Do you think they all went back to their holes in the ground, safe and sound?"
RIGGS is silent.
"The reason we picked you up is simple, Riggs. We know you're still one of the best in the world. And we know you've been targeted. You've seen things most people don't even believe in. And we think we can use you."
"And if I refuse?"
VANCE sits back. "Well, we can't let you just keep on living. You've seen too much; you know too much. And you and I, we have a history. So you either work for us...or we take care of you."
"Who's this 'we?'"
"We're the VAMPS."
Cut to TRAINING FACILITY. VANCE walks RIGGS through it; soldiers training hand-to-hand, firing weapons, using grappling hooks and rappelling down walls. Training videos of screaming demonic figures and beasts. Specimens being studied by scientists through glass windows. It's insane.
"VAMPS stands for Vampire And Monster Police Squad. Government funding. Underground. Secret. You killed one with your bare hands, Riggs, you know--these things are out there, and they're real. Every sighting and story you've ever heard about goblins, ghouls, zombies, vampires, wendigos, hellhounds--they're all real, and they're all out there. Organized but fragmented. Feral but intelligent. We honestly don't know much about them, but we do know they can hide; they can look like us. And we've been tracking them, trying to find their headquarters. Their Hive. We're going to blow it up."
A soldier runs up to VANCE. "Captain, we've received an alert. A cabal has just shown up on the radars. They've got a woman. Brand is already there."
VANCE nods. "Deploy a squad. Riggs, looks like the tour will be cut short. Suit up. We've got a mission."
