Charlie Croker and his fellow crew of expert thieves head to Rio de Janeiro to pull off another heist in this follow up to The Italian Job (2003).
The Brazilian Job," the sequel to "The Italian Job," was expected to be given a fast green light and reach theatres by 2007, reports IGN. Along the way, however, the process stalled. One significant culprit for the delay has reportedly been the screenplay.
David Twohy of "Pitch Black" fame was hired to pen the picture, but from the sounds of things he still hasn't turned in a story everyone is happy with. As previously reported, lead Mark Wahlberg won't sign on until the movie gets past that stage.
"They're trying to get the script there," explained Wahlberg, the star of The Italian Job. "I like that they're willing to get it there, but I'm not willing to risk it without having it on the page."
