The Dead Pool

The Dead Pool
-After testifying in court to put a key mob figure in San Quentin, Dirty Harry gets unwanted fame. To make matters worse, Homicide wants him to play nice with the media. Elsewhere, a British horror film director, named Peter Swan, is in town to shoot a video for a drug addict rock star named Johnny Squares. He starts a little game with his crew called "The Dead Pool", which consists of celebrities they think will die, whether it be from natural causes or high risk professions, and when Squares overdoses and dies, Dirty Harry is assigned to the case. That's when he discovers the game and finds he's on the list too.

-And to add, Dirty Harry must also contend with a reporter named Samantha Walker who wants to do a story on him, and he finds she is on the list too. The investigation all points to Peter, since most of the celebs that are dying are the ones on his 'list'. So Dirty Harry and the reporter must stop the killer before he is next to die.
