本片段剧情:英国前首相朗要出版回忆录,但负责此书的写手写完初稿后却意外身亡,出版商瑞克帮捉刀手揽下了修改书稿这份肥差。他们和朗的律师等人商谈,定下了合作细节。但这本书的名义主编罗伊始终觉得第一位写手死得蹊跷,并提醒捉刀手不要接受这份工作,但捉刀手在高薪诱惑下丝毫听不进他的劝告。

精彩对白

Ghost writer: Roy. Who're you expecting to bomb you, Random House?

Roy: We're publishing Lang's memoirs. That's enough to make us a target, apparently.

Ghost writer: Thank you. How many have you seen?

Roy: Five. You're the last. I must be honest. I don't think you're the right man for this assignment.

Ghost writer: Then it's a good job it's not your decision, Roy.

Roy: John Maddox, chief executive of Rhinehart, New York. Sidney Kroll, Mr. Lang's Washington attorney. And Rick Ricardelli I believe you know.

Ghost writer:All right, Rick.

John: All right, I gather from Rick you're aware of the situation? Perhaps you can enlighten us and tell us what exactly you're gonna bring to this project.

Ghost writer: Nothing. No, I'm not gonna pretend to be someone I'm not. You have my CV.

Roy: His last effort was the autobiography of a magician, ICame, I Sawed, I Conquered.

Rick: Yeah, and it went straight to number one, so.. .

Ghost writer: After you turned it down, Roy. Look, I don't read political memoirs. Who does? And I gather you've spent $10 million on this book. How much of that are you gonna see back? Two? Three? It's bad news for your shareholders. And it's worse news for your client, Mr. Kroll. Adam Lang, he wants a place in history, not in the remainder tables.

Roy: Oh, please!

Ghost writer: It's because I know nothing about politics that I'll ask the questions that get right to the heart of who Adam Lang is. And that is what sells autobiographies. Heart.

Rick: Wow! That's nicely done.

Roy: What utter balls.

John: You think so?

Roy: John, of course. Adam Lang's a world historical figure. His autobiography is gonna be a world-publishing event.

John: Yeah, well, I got warehouses filled with world-publishing events waiting to be pulped. Sid?

Sidney: Adam is obviously still very upset by what happened to Mike McAra. He was irreplaceable. Irreplaceable, and yet he has to be replaced. Adam can certainly appreciate the benefits of trying someone different. In the end, it's about chemistry. Do you work out, maybe?

Ghost writer: Not really.

Sidney: That's a pity. Adam likes to work out.

Roy: Actually, l know a good writer on the Guardian who uses a gym.

Rick: Okay, maybe we could just run over the publishing schedule, yeah?

John: We need to wrap this up in a month.

Ghost writer: A month?

John: Yes.

Ghost writer: You want the book in a month?

Sidney: We already have a first draft.

John: Yeah, well, it needs a lot of work. That's why I like your resume here. You're fast, and you deliver.

Rick: You name it, he ghosts it.

John: And you're a Brit. The ghost should be a Brit. To get the jolly old tone right, right?

Sidney: Do you have any family commitments?

Ghost writer: No, I have no family. Why?

Sidney: Adam is locked into a US lecture tour, also a fundraising program for the Adam Lang Foundation.

Rick: It's a month in the States. That's okay.

Ghost writer: Couldn't I bring the manuscript back here to work on?

Sidney: I'm afraid not. It's in a secure environment in Marty Rhinehart's own house. Only a few people are allowed to handle it.

Roy: Sounds more like a bomb than a book. I will need to see it myself at some point. I am supposed to be editing it.

John: Yeah, in theory. Actually, we need to talk about that. How soon can you get over there?

Ghost writer: As soon as you want.

Rick: He'll fly tonight.

John: Okay, you're in. Congratulations.

Ghost writer: Thank you. Thanks.

Sidney: Actually, l have something here you might want to look at. No, no, no, this isn't Adam's book. No, it's another client of mine. Yeah, perhaps you can let me know what you think.

Ghost writer: Sure.

John: Okay, if you're gonna get that evening flight, we'd better talk contracts with Rick here. Wanna show our friend to the door? Would you? Roy?

Rick: Call you in an hour, buddy.

John: Hey! Remember.. .Heart.

Roy: There's something not quite right about this project.

Ghost writer: What? Me, you mean?

Roy: Obviously you. And McAra. Suicide? He didn't strike me as the suicidal type.

Ghost writer: Always nice to see you, Roy.

Roy: Good luck.
