The Italian Job set to return as TV series

Michael Caine’s heist classic The Italian Job is set for another reboot – this time for TV.
Caine’s 1969 caper was revamped for a 2003 action film, starring Mark Wahlberg and Charlize Theron, and now TV bosses at NBC are interested in turning the project into a fast-paced series.
The small screen adaptation will revolve around a family of criminals forced out of retirement as part of a deal to get their patriarch out of jail.
Screenwriter Rob Weiss, who helped mastermind Dwayne Johnson’s new TV hit Ballers and the classic Entourage, has been put in charge of the script for the project, which will be produced by Paramount Television bosses.
None of the stars from either Caine’s 1969 classic nor the 2003 revamp, which also featured Jason Statham, Ed Norton, Seth Green, Mos Def, and Donald Sutherland, are expected to appear in the TV remake.
