Bean plays Howe in this movie directed by Jon Turtletaub. It is about a third generation treasure hunter (Nicholas Cage) who has been searching for a treasure all his life. He goes across continents seeking for this one thing that no one knows exists. He finally finds a map hidden at the back of the declaration of independence but when he thinks he has found the final clue,this turns out to be just the beginning. Co starring: Diane Kruger, Justin Bartha, Harvey Keitel. About why he liked to do this part:
I really enjoyed reading the script and I felt that my character had humanity and charm. He is not that different from Nic’s character in fact the scene where he is forced to kill you can see in his eyes that he doesn’t want to but the situation falls out of his control. Also the prospect of working with Jon, Jerry and Nicolas appealed to me.
