Get Shorty''s Chili Palmer is back. No more Mr. Nice Guy.

After a smash hit and a flop, B-movie producer Chili Palmer is looking for another score. Lunching with a record company executive, Chili''s exploring a hot new idea-until the exec, a former "associate" from Chili''s Brooklyn days, gets whacked.

Segue from real life to reel life. Chili''s found his plot. It''s a slam-bang opener: the rubout of a record company mogul. Cut to an ambitious wannabe singer named Linda Moon. She has attitude and a band. She''s perfect. Zoom into reality. Linda''s manager thinks Chili''s poaching and he''s out to get even, with the help of his switch-hitting Samoan bodyguard. But somebody else beat them to the punch, as Chili discovers when he gets home and finds a corpse at his desk. Somebody made a mistake. . . .
