If you've seen the film, you know how intense and artistic that beginning is. Looking back, the script I have clearly isn't finished It's missing officer Jim Kurring John C. Reilly losing his gun though the scene is clearly referenced later, and the film ends on a much more upbeat, almost typical ending for Jim and Claudia Melora Walters. The following passages from the script to the NEW LINE production are those involving the character of The Worm, along with one final note on the end of the film of another scene which was shot.
