Not Coming To Theaters: Baker Mayfield and Buddy Hield in BETTER SOONER THAN LATER

Baker Mayfield and Buddy Hield are two of the biggest stars in their respective sports, and both are Oklahoma Sooners. Their comparable success but very different game-day demeanor makes this dynamic duo the perfect pair for a (pardon the pun) buddy-cop flick.

FADE IN:

INT. BAR JUST OFF THE UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA CAMPUS

BUDDY HIELD, star Oklahoma basketball guard lounges by himself in a booth. Music blares over the bar sound system. We see BAKER MAYFIELD, Sooners quarterback, dancing and surrounded by Oklahoma coeds.

BUDDY HIELD laughs to himself before a VIBRATION from his smartphone turns his smile into a stern expression.

DISSOLVE TO: SMARTPHONE SCREEN

“It’s time.”

BUDDY HIELD looks up from his phone and motions to BAKER MAYFIELD. BAKER MAYFIELD exits the dance floor to disappointing groans from the fellow bar patrons. The duo stride purposefully from the bar.

DISSOLVE TO: EXT. OUTSIDE THE BAR, NORMAN, OKLAHOMA – NIGHT

BUDDY HIELD
You ready for this?

BAKER MAYFIELD
Even have to ask? I’m so ready, my granddad was born ready.

The two get into a brand new muscle car. BAKER slides across the hood on his backside, smoothly landing on the passenger’s side before entering. BUDDY turns the ignition and the engine roars to life.

BAKER MAYFIELD
So what’s the intel? Who’m I dealing with here?

BUDDY HIELD
HQ says he calls himself DABO. Prone to bursts of anger, but keeps his crew under control. No one’s beaten him yet. His two right-hand men are DESHAUN and SHAQ. DESHAUN’s got a lot in common with you: dangerous marksman but light on his feet when he needs to be.

SHAQ is the muscle. Don’t let this cat get in your radius or it’s light out.

BAKER MAYFIELD
[laughs] I’ve heard that before. You can’t hurt what you can’t catch.

CUT TO: EXT. MIAMI SKYLINE

The muscle car roars into Miami and screeches to a halt outside SUNLIFE STADIUM. BUDDY and BAKER arrive to find DABO SWINNEY and his Tigers, DESHAUN WATSON and SHAQ LAWSON, wreaking havoc. BAKER opens the car door and strides confidently toward the scene of mayhem.

DABO
[cackles]Y’all want to see some Clemsoning?! I’LL SHOW YOU WHAT CLEMSONING MEANS! Get ’em, Tigers!

BAKER’s confident expression turns to stern focus as he stands at the ready. BUDDY peels out, driving the muscle car to his own destination.

DISSOLVE TO: EXT. HOUSTON’S RELIANT STADIUM

We see COACH K sitting atop the stadium.

COACH K
Well well well, BUDDY HIELD. I’ve been expecting you! You didn’t think I’ve give up the national championship so easily, DID YOU?

BUDDY HIELD
You had your time, Coach K! I’m taking that national championship to Oklahoma, where it rightly belongs.

COACH K
Oh, foolish young man. Your 23 point per game average doesn’t intimidate me. How soon you forget, THE BLUE DEVILS GET ALL THE CALLS! HA HA HA!
