Gone in 60 Seconds (2000)

Randall "Memphis" Raines (NICOLAS CAGE) long ago abandoned his life of crime, but after an ominous visit from an old friend, he finds he has no choice but to return to what he does best - stealing cars - in order to save his brother's life. It all comes down to one night, 50 cars and a contract.

A true automobile aficionado, Memphis has a burning passion for cars. Fuel injected, high performance, V-8, V-12, turbo charged, loaded or stripped to the bare essentials, he knows and loves every nut and bolt, every gleaming piece of chrome. Memphis is a car thief of legendary proportion. No fancy lock or alarm can stop him; your car will be there and gone in 60 seconds.

For years, Memphis eluded the law while boosting every make and model imaginable, with the exception of one elusive car, his beloved Eleanor, a 1967 Shelby Mustang GT 500. When the heat became too intense, he left everything and everyone he loved to find a different life. But when his kid brother (GIOVANNI RIBISI) tries to follow in his footsteps only to become dangerously embroiled in a high stakes caper, Memphis is sucked back into his old life, tearing up the streets for one last death defying heist.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer brings a new dramatic edge to the 1974 cult classic "Gone In 60 Seconds," to create a character driven, fast-paced action thriller about two brothers' struggle for redemption and love. The cast of Bruckheimer's "Gone In 60 Seconds" boasts three Academy Award®-winners: Nicolas Cage, Angelina Jolie and Robert Duvall. The film also stars Giovanni Ribisi, Delroy Lindo, Will Patton, Christopher Eccleston and Chi McBride.
