Ghost, a master thief, is done wrong by Furious Styles, and is left for dead in a ditch, but he lives with the help of his love Rose. After months of healing, Ghost comes up with a plan to get his former boss and take every penny he’s got. To do so, Ghost must first gather his crew and prepare them for the biggest heist of their lives.
On June 12, 2013, Nickross03597 sent CosimoValuta a pitch for a film entitled Power, which would feature several characters that would later go on to be incorporated into Nick's other film idea for The Heist, which was pitched on June 13. After CosimoValuta declined to direct the film, AmericanWarshipsFilm was the next director approached by Nick to helm the film, an offer which he accepted. On June 21, CosimoValuta held a poll in The Mafia Films group to determine what film idea the company would pursue. The Heist, which was one of the options, won the straw poll.
On June 26, CosimoValuta wrote out the screenplay for the film, however with AmericanWarshipsFilm already slated as the director, CosimoValuta forcefully took over the project from American and relegated him to the status of Guest Director on the film. On July 1, principal photography began on the movie, and was completed in late July. On July 27, The Heist was officially released.

- Nickross03597's film idea for Power had the characters of Ghost, Loco, Rob, Kato, and Rose as the main characters, along with a character named Quicks, who would be the inspiration for the character Quick from The Heist.
- The film's audio track was muted by YouTube not long after its initial release, prompting CosimoValuta to upload the film to Vimeo on July 26, 2013. The film was later removed from Vimeo after that channel was shut down. To this date, no version of The Heist with its audio intact is public.
- The film was digitally remastered on October 18, 2015, with YouTube still muting the video track.
- A deleted scene from the movie had the character Ghost mention a city called Carlaville in Carlo County, Texas as the place he wanted to travel to next. This was to set up an eventual crossover with the Carlo County Outlaws franchise but was removed from the film during the remaster.
After the release of The Heist, CosimoValuta began developing a short film epilogue entitled After The Heist, which would focus on two detectives, Detective al-Islam and Detective Johnson, investigating the bank robbery and uncovering the tracks of Ghost and his crew. The film would end with SWAT teams storming Ghost's home in Wisconsin, killing Rose and her son. In retaliation, Rob goes undercover and kills both detectives in their offices. The short would end with Ghost and his crew leaving for Carlaville, for the crossover with the Carlo County Outlaws franchise. The crossover was cancelled as a part of company reforms in TMF to focus on high-quality content in late 2013.
The Heist II: After The Heist was the second attempt at a sequel installment. This film was to focus on the story of a drug cartel based in Mexico threatening Ghost and his crew, resulting in the gang going down into Mexico and wiping out the drug cartel themselves. The project was announced at the 2015 Octoberfest Film Festival. After a decision by CosimoValuta to not make sequels to old TMF movies that had ROBLOX 2.0 bodies, the project was cancelled.
A potential reboot to The Heist was being developed shortly after the sequel project was cancelled in 2016. DonValuta opted for this reboot to focus on events which occurred after Ghost and his crew rob the Bank of Belleville, similar to the previous attempt for a sequel. On April 15, 2018, DonValuta announced that the reboot was upcoming.
