Some news on potential co-star for Mark. - Charlize Theron, his co-star in The Yards is in talks to do so again.

Scoops from Variety/Hollywood Reporter via Yahoo News:

Theron Eyes 'Italian Job'
Thu May 30, 5:37 AM ET

By Michael Fleming

NEW YORK (Variety) - Charlize Theron is negotiating to star alongside Mark Wahlberg in "The Italian Job," a heist drama that F. Gary Gray will start shooting in August.

Based on the eponymous 1969 picture, which starred Michael Caine, Benny Hill and Noel Coward, the Paramount update will shoot in Italy and Los Angeles and will be grittier than the original, which had comedic elements. Consistent in both films is the presence of the speedy but miniscule Mini Cooper sports cars, a line BMW recently bought and revived, just in time to be the centerpiece of the new film.

Wahlberg plays career criminal Charlie Croker, who masterminds a massive gold bullion heist that is made possible when the crooks create the largest traffic jam in L.A. history. With the highways effectively turned into parking lots, the thieves are able to get around by using Mini Coopers that can drive over sidewalks, stairways and even subway tunnels.

Theron would play the daughter of Croker's former partner. She enlists in the heist and proves to be a gifted safecracker and driver.

Theron safe bet for 'Italian Job' remake at Par

LOS ANGELES (The Hollywood Reporter) --- Charlize Theron is in negotiations to star opposite Mark Wahlberg in Paramount Pictures' "The Italian Job" for director F. Gary Gray and studio-based DeLine Pictures.

A late July or early August start is being planned. "Italian" would reteam Theron with Wahlberg, both of whom starred in the 2000 Miramax feature "The Yards."

Scripted by Donna and Wayne Powers, "Italian" is a remake of the 1969 Paramount release of the same name that starred Michael Caine and Benny Hill. The new version, a reinvention of the action-oriented heist movie, will be set in Italy and Los Angeles.

It stars Wahlberg as Charlie, head of a robbery crew who stages a traffic jam in order to steal back a safe filled with gold that had been previously stolen by a double-crossing associate. Theron would play Stella, his love interest who happens to be the daughter of Charlie's now-dead mentor. She is an expert safecracker and skilled driver.

Theron, repped by UTA, next stars in the Luis Mandoki-directed "Trapped" for Columbia Pictures and Miramax Films' "Waking Up in Reno."
