The producer talks Bank Job, Dark Knight and The Flash.
Movie fans probably don't know the name Charles (or "Chuck") Roven but chances are you've enjoyed plenty of the blockbusters he's produced. The short list includes Three Kings, 12 Monkeys, Scooby Doo, Batman Begins and the upcoming Dark Knight, The Flash and Get Smart.
Roven's latest effort is entitled The Bank Job, a heist flick based on the most outrageous and bizarre true crime tale you've never heard of. After the Baker Street heist went down in London in 1971, a gag order was issued to the press effectively killing the telling of the story ever since. The events around the heist involve sexual conspiracies within Parliament and the Royal Family, mob relations and more.
