The Bank Job is a 2008 British heist-thriller film written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, directed by Roger Donaldson, and starring Jason Statham, based on the 1971 Baker Street robbery in central London, from which the money and valuables stolen were never recovered. The producers allege that the story was prevented from being told in 1971 because of a D-Notice government gagging request, allegedly to protect a prominent member of the British Royal Family. According to the producers, this film is intended to reveal the truth for the first time, although it includes significant elements of fiction. The premiere was held in London on 18 February 2008. The film was released in both the UK on 29 February 2008 and in the US on 7 March 2008. It has grossed $64.8 million worldwide and has a 79% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which called it “thoroughly entertaining”.

The production crew used Chatham Historic Dockyard to shoot the sequence at the side entrance of Paddington station where the final showdown between Terry and Lew Vogel takes place. Part of the filming took place on location at the offices of Websters, 136 Baker Street where the rooftops were used for lookout locations. The majority of outside shots, namely shots including the bank and adjacent shops, were done on a specially constructed set of Baker Street, to retain an authentic feel of the period and to allow for greater control. This partial set was extended using VFX.
