Sir Michael Caine, 82, says he would gleefully star in a new film in preparation about the recent £14m Hatton Garden jewellery heist, ’on condition the script is sparkling’.
So, are we in for a new version of the well known expression, like: ‘You were only supposed to blow the ruddy (ruby) doors orff!”?
Items in the Hatton Garden safe deposit raid included gold, diamonds and sapphires, when the gang of ‘grand-dad’ burglars drilled their way into a subterranean vault in London’s jewellery district. Three men have been found guilty of involvement in the raid, the largest burglary in British legal history. Given that a large part of the booty was recovered by a rapid and tenacious police operation, we can say that Hatton Garden remains a focal point for celebrities and the infamous alike, whilst retaining its reputation as a safe haven for collectors and investors.
