Ocean’s 14?

I guess I’ve got to change my take that it’s impossible to successfully rob a major casino and get away. From IHT:

Four masked robbers stole at least €600,000 (US$800,000) from a Brussels casino early Sunday, Belgian television reported.

The men, armed with a machine gun, forced staff at the Grand Casino Brussels to open cash registers and a safe at around 4 a.m. (0200 GMT). No shots were fired and no one was hurt.

They made their getaway in a taxi they had stolen earlier. A policeman driving his private car chased them, but lost them at a highway junction.

The Grand Casino Brussels is Belgium’s largest.

Maksed gunmen, stolen taxis, and a clean getaway with a rogue cop giving chase in his beat-up Pinto (well, that last bit was some poetic license). If this isn’t already in a movie, it should be. We just need to think up some backstory for the criminal quartet (brothers needing money for an operation for their mothers? undercover agents getting funds for a secret operation?) and a little about the security guard who’s got a week to go until he retires, and I think we can find someone to greenlight this.
