Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz in Gambit Remake

Cameron Diaz and Colin Firth have been cast to star in a movie remake of Gambit – which originally starred Shirley MacLaine and Michael Cane. The script is by Joel and Ethan Coen (a.k.a. Coen Brothers) and is based on a British romantic heist film. Director Michael Hoffman (The Last Station) is attached to the project.

According to tid-bits of information Firth will play a London art curator who plans to con a wealthy collector into buying a phony Monet Painting. He hires a Diaz’s character to portray the grand-daughter of a WWII veteran who possessed the painting. 

In my opinion, this could be a good film if the script is written well (I love the original film by the way). I am not sure about Michael Hoffman however, because although I enjoyed The Last Station, his directorial skills are nothing to brag about. Stay tuned.
