The first trailer for The Hatton Garden Job - a film version of the infamous heist which took place in April 2015 - has been released.

It's a brief clip showing the film's (much younger) cast in action as they break into an underground safe deposit facility in London.

Matthew Goode (Watchmen, Stoker) heads up the British ensemble which also includes True Blood actor Stephen Moyer and Joely Richardson.

Rounding out the cast is Clive Russell, Phil Daniels and Larry Lamb who was recently a contestant on ITV reality show I'm a celebrity... Get Me Out of Here.

The robbery - conducted by jewel thieves nicknamed the "bad grandpas" - is deemed the "largest burglary in English legal history."

British actor Michael Caine revealed earlier this year that, if asked, he would sign up to the film in an instant.

The Hatton Garden Job will be released in the UK in 2017.
