Mark Wahlberg begged The Italian Job director F Gary Gray to let him perfect an English accent for the remake - but the movie maker refused.

Gray was put off after watching Wahlberg's troubled take on the English accent in movie hit ROCK STAR - but the Boogie Nights actor insists he was supposed to be bad in that picture.

He explains, "In that movie I got to do a bad British accent and for some reason Gary thought that was me giving my best effort, and when I suggested it he said, 'There's no way in hell.'

"I had been studying Michael Caine, the star of the original film, and I would have literally gone to London for a year and really got it right, but there was no way in hell that was happening."
