The Italian Job script
Synopsis: After a heist in Venice, Steve (Edward Norton) turns on his partners in crime, killing safecracker John Bridger (Donald Sutherland) and keeping all the gold for himself. The rest of the team, including leader Charlie Croker (Mark Wahlberg), driver Handsome Rob (Jason Statham), explosives man Left Ear (Mos Def) and tech geek Lyle (Seth Green), vows revenge. They enlist the help of Bridger's daughter, Stella (Charlize Theron), and plot to recover the gold from Steve's Los Angeles mansion.

JOHN BRIDGER:

Everything's going to be fine. I've got

to go now. I love you. Bye.

He clicks off then uses his card key to step into the —

INT. HOTEL ROOM -CONTINUOUS

He eyes Char-lie, who looks pretty tense.

JOHN BRIDGER:

Italians?

CHARLIE:

Not yet.

STEVE:

Don't worry, they'll come through. You

can trust these guys.

JOHN BRIDGER:

I trust everyone. It's the devil inside

them that I don't trust.

(then, to Charlie)

Got a sec?

CHARLIE:

My office.

INT. HOTEL BATHROOM -NIGHT

They step inside, Charlie closing the door.

JOHN BRIDGER:

How you feeling, boss?

CHARLIE:

.Fine. I'm fine, fine.

Bridger seems amused by that answer.

JOHN BRIDGER:

You know what .fine, stands for, don't you?

Fucked-up, Insecure, Neurotic, and

Emotional.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

CHARLIE:

You've become quite the philosopher since

you quit drinking.

JOHN BRIDGER:

You don't like me sober?

CHARLIE:

No, I'm glad. Makes you a better thief.

Bridger pulls out a fine cigar, still in its wrapper, hands

it to Charlie.

JOHN BRIDGER:

For after the haul.

CHARLIE:

Hope I get to fire it up. If Steve's

Italians are a no-show, it's three months

prep down the shitter and I' ve dragged

you out of retirement for nothing.

JOHN BRIDGER:

This is kinda nice. You being the boss

with all the worries, me just along for

the ride.

CHARLIE:

Ain't you sweet. .

From the other side of the door, they HEAR

STEVE (O.S.)

Charlie!

INT. HOTEL ROOM -NIGHT

Charlie takes the binoculars from Steve. He SEES TWO ITALIAN

CUSTOMS INSPECTORS climbing onboard the ship.

CHARLIE:

Your Italians.

STEVE:

Yup. Dixie cups.

CHARLIE:

Dixie cups?
