Wahlberg's next Job
Mark Wahlberg will jump from one remake to another as he segues from THE TRUTH ABOUT CHARLIE (a remake of CHARADE) to THE ITALIAN JOB, a blandly titled heist film based off the 1969 Michael Caine film of the same name. F. Gary Gray, who recently directed THE NEGOTIATOR and has signed to direct the MAGE feature film, will direct from a script by Donna and Wayne Powers. Wahlberg will star as the ringleader of a crew who set out to lift a considerable amount of gold from a bank in Los Angeles. Their scheme includes tying up traffic and escaping using the BMW Mini Cooper, which is small enough to maneuver through tight spaces. Filming begins this August in Italy before returning stateside to film the finale.
