A Conversation for 'The Italian Job' - the Film


Post 1


In the Internet Movie Database (www.imdb.com) there is a listing for a remake of the Italian Job to be released in 2003!! Mark Whalberg is listed as taking the Charlie Croker role. In the posted plot summary, the theft apparently takes place in Los Angeles using (presumably new) Minis. Since it takes place in Los Angeles, it's unclear why it's still being called the "The Italian Job".

It's like remaking Casablanca - you could do it, but why would you bother ehwn it will inevitably be worse than the original?

I actually was pleasantly surprised with this remake. After seeing remakes of Psycho, The Omen et al I expected something equally unworthy but thought that The Italian Job remake got it spot on thanks mostly to a stellar cast of Ed Norton, Mark Wahlberg and the legend that is Donald Sutherland.
