Citing both the 1969 original and its subsequent 2003 remake as inspiration, Paramount is said to be revving up a new interpretation of The Italian Job for TV.
Deadline broke the news yesterday evening, confirming that Rob Weiss (Ballers, Entourage) and Benjamin Brand will join forces to flesh out the script, before going on to executive produce alongside Donald De Line, the producer involved in that 2003 remake headlined by Charlize Theron and Mark Wahlberg.
If you’re unfamiliar with the property, The Italian Job is a British crime caper centering on a make-shift family of expert criminals. Forced out of retirement to complete one last job – a time-honored action trope if ever there was one – their mission involves rescuing their beloved “patriarch” from a long sentence behind bars. Charlie Croker, played by Michael Caine and later Wahlberg, is the crooning ex-con at the heart of the story, with Deadline noting that the »

Another day, another reboot: NBC has given a script commitment plus penalty to The Italian Job, a potential series inspired by the 1969 film of the same name and the 2003 remake, which starred Mark Wahlberg and Charlize Theron, our sister site Deadline reports.
The drama project — written/executive produced by Rob Weiss (Entourage, Ballers) and Benjamin Brand (Bollywood Hero) — is described as “a noisy, sexy thrill ride” about a makeshift family of expert criminals who are forced out of retirement when an opportunity arises to get »
NBC is working on a TV version of iconic heist caper movie The Italian Job. That’s per Deadline, which says that the network has given a script commitment to a new crime drama based on the 1969 Michael Caine classic. The show is being written and produced by Ballers’ Rob Weiss, whose old Entourage co-producer Mark Wahlberg starred in the original’s 2003 remake.
NBC is promising a “noisy, sexy, thrill-ride” with its new show, along with—presumably—a whole host of product placement for BMW’s Mini Cooper. Coopers—originally produced by the British Motor Corporation—were a key component of the climax of both films, with the Quincy Jones-scored Cooper chase from the original a regular entry in lists of the best cinematic car chases of all time.
A sequel to the 2003 film, tentatively titled The Brazilian Job, has been in the works for years, but ...

How will the heist film classic translate to the small screen? NBC is planning to find out...
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that NBC has given a script commitment to a TV series based on The Italian Job. The show will follow a found family of expert criminals who come out of retirement to try to save their beloved patriarch from jail. Like the previous films, the TV show will feature the character of Charlie Croker at its centre, a criminal trying to go straight, but who can't help but get pulled back into this adrenaline-fuelled world of high-stakes crime. You know how it is.
Unlike the movies, it seems that the show will feature a prison break rather than a heist. But, hey, who says we can't have both? According to the report, the show hopes to "preserve the action, humour, romance and picturesque international locales from the movies. »

When you think Mandy Moore, early 2000s probably comes to mind. She was everywhere. Mandy popped up in The Princess Diaries, tore our hearts out in A Walk to Remember, made us laugh in Saved! and even got a little raunchy in her arc on the HBO hit series Entourage. Needless to say she a successful actress and singer. Mandy released hit songs such as "Candy," "I Wanna Be With You" and "Stupid Cupid," officially making her a double threat in Hollywood. But as quickly as Mandy rose to new Millennium fame she just as quickly faded into the abyss, unable to maintain such a streak of hits. She appeared in License to Wed and Because I Said So, both rom-coms that didn't really perform up to box »
I very rarely catch any network TV. I don’t say that from an annoying hipster friend vantage point, it’s just that I typically don’t watch any shows that aren’t called Game of Thrones as they first air so rarely ever have to watch cable, and any consumption of TV I do is usually on any of the major streaming providers who have their own, and often, better original content. Hell, it’s hard to get me off Youtube as we have this odd thing occurring where the discussion of some shows or film are actually more entertaining and convenient than the actual shows or films themselves.
These days it’s not good enough to just have a great show you also have to be great enough to want to follow and wait for, which I will be be right to the point, this didn’t do, »

At the Atx Festival this summer, I had the privilege of sitting down with four different sets of couples who make up the wonderful talent behind Younger.
I hope you enjoy the conversation.
What was the genesis of Younger?
Darren: Well, it was originally a book that I found several years ago, and I was always really intrigued by the premise of a woman who left the workforce to have kids and raised a family and then, basically, 14 years later wanted to get back to work and found that doors were closed and she was too old. I knew women who had basically had that same experience in Hollywood. You know, after 12 years or even longer, you come back and find it's really tough...

The Broken Lizard comedy group consists of Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske and, when they released their film Super Troopers in 2001, it was met with something of a luke-warm critical reception. That film has continued to build an audience in the intervening years, however, to the extent that Super Troopers 2 was been successfully crowdfunded on Indigogo. The group are now deep into production on the follow-up, and have cast Emmanuelle Chriqui in a new role.
The original film centred on five Vermont State Troopers who spent most of their time playing elaborate pranks on the Canadian border, until real crime disrupted their fun. Their intense rivalry with the local police of Spurbury took on a new complexion when the troopers uncover corruption in that department. The end of the film finds the Troopers replacing the local police, and moving into a different level of crime-fighting. »

With production officially underway in Boston on the crowdfunded sequel to 2001’s cult comedy Super Troopers, it seems as though the film’s full cast is finally starting to be revealed. According to Deadline (source links here and here), Rob Lowe, who is fresh off of his Comedy Central Roast, and Emmanuelle Chriqui, whose Hulu drama Shut Eye is only a few months away from release, have signed on to star in the upcoming feature film.
Reportedly, Lowe will be playing a character named Guy Le Franc, who the outlet describes as a “former hockey player and current mayor” of a Canadian town that borders the troopers’ town of Spurbury, Vermont.
On the other hand, Chriqui is set to play “Genevieve Aubois, a French/Canadian cultural attaché focused on relations with the U.S.” On the actress, director Jay Chandrasekhar said, “Emmanuelle and I met years ago and have been »

With production back on track for the highly-anticipated comedy sequel Super Troopers 2, the cast keeps growing. Today we have word that Emmanuelle Chriqui has signed on to this long-awaited follow-up, playing Genevieve Aubois, a French/Canadian cultural attaché who is trying to foster relations with the United States. This news comes just two days after we got our first look at Rob Lowe's Guy Le Franc, a former hockey player who serves as the mayor of a Canadian border town near Quebec.
Deadline has the news of Emmanuelle Chriqui's casting, but it isn't known how large or small her role is, or if she has any connection to Rob Lowe's Canadian character Guy Le Franc. The original Super Troopers was set in Spurbury, Vermont, a fictional town close to the U.S./Canada border, and it seems that at least part of this sequel is set in Canada. »
