The first trailer for Gambit is out and it features a nude Alan Rickman.
Gambit stars Colin Firth as Harry Deane, an art curator who tries to con England’s most powerful art collector (Rickman) into buying a fake Monet painting. To pull off the scheme, he hires an American rodeo queen (Cameron Diaz) to pretend to be the granddaughter of a WWII man who liberated the painting in question. The film is a remake of the 1966 movie starring Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine. Check out the trailer below:
Firth signed on to Gambit around the time he accepted his Oscar for The King’s Speech. The script was penned by the Coen Brothers, who did a wonderful job reinventing the John Wayne Western True Grit,.
Gambit also stars Stanley Tucci, Cloris Leachman and Tom Courtenay. It opens in theaters in 2013.
Cameron Diaz set for Shirley MacLaine’s role in ‘Gambit’ remake. Savvy? Risky? Both?
