please tell me you are kidding. if it is set in LA, how can it still be the italian job (unless they use venice beach...but i dont think that counts...). and as fopr the star...WTF??? marky mark???? a one hit wonder from 5 years ago should not be considered. i just get the feeling this could end up a clone of the fast and the furious.
the film should be shot in italy. no contest. the star could be someone like ewan mcgregor...the minis and i am not against, bu the car would have to be small. mind you, the british car industry is virtually non-existent now, so any cars would have to cone from somewhere else
