Director: Dominic Sena

Writer: Skip Woods

Keywords: Action/Adventure, Hacking, Internet, Heist, Explosions

A morally-challenged counter-terrorism operative enlists the servies of a brilliant hacker to steal money from the American government.

ABSTRACT
The United States' Drug Enforcement Agency shut down an operation of indeterminable purpose codenamed "SWORDFISH" in 1986, abandoning $400,000,000 o earned income. Fifteen years later, counter-terrorism operative Gabriel Shear, an idealistic and conflicted man driven by a resource-intensive desire to eliminate terrorist cells around the globe, becomes aware of this abandoned sum of money; eager to get his hands on the loot (now estimated at over nine billion dollars thanks to interest), he hires hard-up computer hacker Stanley Jobson, drawing a man whose desire to turn "straight" lose out to his need for cash into a cyber-tastic grand caper.
