Sarà Cameron Diaz ad affiancare Colin Firth nel remake di Gambit scritto dai fratelli Coen e diretto da Michael Hoffman.
Nell’originale i due ruoli erano stati interpretati da Michael Caine e Shirley McLaine.
Firth plays a London art curator who plans to con a wealthy collector into buying a phony Monet painting. He enlists a Texas steer roper (Diaz) to pose as a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII.
That’s pretty similar to the original, which had the con man / cat burglar (Caine) choosing a waitress (MacLaine) because she looked just like the late wife of the man he was targeting.
Il film dovrebbe essere girato a Londra a partire dal prossimo maggio.
