The Italian Job Pushed To More Screens

MARK WAHLBERG's action flick THE ITALIAN JOB is poised for an expanded run at American cinemas - three months after its release.

The movie, which also stars CHARLIZE THERON, JASON STATHAM and EDWARD NORTON, has earned an impressive $96 million (GBP60 million) since its 30 May (03) debut, but bosses hope to haul in more cash by increasing its dwindling theatre count to between 1,500 and 2,500 venues over the Labour Day weekend (29-31AUG03).

The MINI COOPER caper flick is currently shown in just 217 cinemas across America, after the release of a long list of summer sequels pushed the movie aside.

Studio bosses hope their latest efforts will push the film over the $100 million (GBP62.5 million) mark.
