updates on The Italian Job
Italian Job Updated :
If I was any young actor in Hollywood
that had a choice in the roles I took, i'd steer well clear
of this, but one of Hollywood's A-list has signed on to play
the Michael Caine part, Charlie Croker in F. Gary Gray's Italian
Job remake. And he is none other that Mark Wahlberg, star
of last summer's average Planet Of The Apes remake.
Online also providing more information on the film's plot
by saying that 'The classic is being transformed from a
light comedy into a high-octane heist movie with
a much harder edge. Los Angeles will take over from Turin
as the scene of the gold bullion robbery which will again
use a massive traffic jam as the basis of the escape. The
revamped Mini will also be making an appearance'. So where
does Italy come in to all of this? The
Italian Job? The
original was set in Turin......this will be set in LA. Well
here's how they got 'round that one, the film will actually
start in Italy, but the robbery will take place in Los Angeles.
And the new Mini, now owned by BMW, will feature in the film
to tie in with its launch in the US.
The Hollywood Reporter today announced that The Negotiator
and Friday director F. Gary Gray will direct a remake of the
classic 1960's British film The Italian Job. The original
is still up there as one of my favourite films of all time
along with those other Caine classics The Ipcress File and
Get Carter, another great British film that Hollywood has
remade and indeed 'balls-ed up'. Do I not like the idea of
this either! The Italian Job is a classic! One that you must
leave alone and respect its original genius. This time, the
action will apparently switch to LA with a lot of the action
still taking place in Italy (obviously).
The possibility of the announcement meaning anything to me
would to see the film being produced in Britain with title,
'The Italian Job' - and 'A Guy Ritchie Film' above it. Then
i'd be at least little excited.
alas, the screenplay has been written by Donna and Wayne
Powers, who scripted the okay-ish Deep Blue Sea and Valentine.
Gray, who helmed the 'average' The Negotiator and the
even more 'average' Friday will kick things off in either
July or August of this year will a summer 2003 release.
Nobody has been cast in the film as of yet but if you
want to take a look at the original film, which is one
of the great
