Walhberg And Coopers To Star In Italian Job Remake

11 April 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Fans of '60s caper film The Italian Job have reasons to rejoice and complain after multiple announcements in recent days. According to Variety, Mark Wahlberg has been signed to star in the remake, which will begin shooting in August. Furthermore, those who love the film for its use of Coopers, diminuitive British automobiles with a cult following, will be happy to find out that Coopers will feature prominently in the remake as well. German automaker BMW has bought the famed line and plans to release a new model to the public in 2003, perfectly timed to go with the publicity the film will give them. On the other hand, while the original film was somewhat comedic and took place in Europe, some fans have been devastated to find out that the new script relocates much of the action to Los Angeles and gives the film a more serious tone.

Italian Second Jobber

21 March 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Classic British sixties movie The Italian Job is getting a Hollywood make-over. F. Gary Gray will direct a new version of the cult 1969 heist movie, which starred Sir Michael Caine and Sir Noel Coward. The Paramount Pictures project is to start production on July 22nd, for a planned summer 2003 release. The original version featured one of the most famous car chase sequences in movie history, with a fleet of Coopers (a British car with a cult following) causing havoc in the streets of Turin, Italy. The new feature will start in Italy, but finish in Los Angeles. Gray's last venture was El Diablo, starring Vin Diesel. Fans of the original are hoping that Gray will not leave out the Coopers in the update. »
