Screen beauty Charlize Theron agreed to star in the remake of THE ITALIAN
JOB - even though she'd never heard of the classic original.
South African-born Theron confesses she was blissfully ignorant of the
1969 Michael Caine movie when approached to appear alongside Mark Wahlberg and
Edward Norton in the new movie - and she only signed to take part because it
with Wahlberg again.
Theron says, "Mark and I remained really good friends after working
together in the film The Yards.
"When The Italian Job came around he knew he was going to do it, so he
called me and said it could be fun for us both to do.
"I guess there are very few actors that I've worked with that I would like
to work with again."
