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.

STEVE:

I toss 'em away if there's a problem down

the road.

EXT. SHIP -NIGHT

In ITALIAN, the Inspectors quiz the NERVOUS CAPTAIN about the

mysterious crate.

One Inspector takes a crowbar and yanks out several strips of

plywood, REVEALING unmarked cardboard boxes inside. The

other Inspector pulls out one of the boxes and tears it open.

It is filled with tomatoes. He takes a bite out of one.

Nods. Everything seems to be order. The Captain looks

relieved. The inspector closes the cardboard box but...

Watch carefully now, because as he does this, he hits a power

button on a small HOMING DEVICE and stuffs it in with the

tomatoes...

INT. HOTEL ROOM -SAME TIME

On Lyle's computer screen, a pulsating dot appears, BEEPING,

sending out precise longitude and latitude.

LYLE:

For those about to rock, we salute you.

Charlie dials his cell phone.

INT. HUMVEE (MOVING) -INTERCUT

Handsome Rob answers.

HANDSOME ROB:

Yeah.

CHARLIE:

Let's get rich.

Handsome Rob pulls over. They're at the port. They can see

the mysterious crate being lowered into the ship's hold.

Half-Ear climbs out, taking a large duffel bag with him.

CUT TO:

EXT. SHIP (DOCKED) -LATER, NIGHT

The Captain is doing his final checks before launch. OUR

CAMERA DROPS to —

BENEATH THE WATER

where we FIND Half-Ear, in scuba gear, applying Nitramon

explosive primer to the hull of the ship.

INT. HUMVEE (MOVING) -NIGHT

Plowing through thick brush that breaks out onto a secluded

beach. Handsome Rob is still behind the wheel but now Steve

is in the passenger seat. Lyle, in the back, is still on the

laptop, legs fidgeting like a drummer on meth. POP goes his

bubble gum.

HANDSOME ROB:

Can you chill out back there? You'd make

a hummingbird nervous.
