Here is our first look at Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz in the Gambit remake from director Michael Hoffman (The Last Station). Filming recently kicked off in London and thanks to Comingsoon we have a picture. Stanley Tucci and Cloris Leachman have joined the cast that also includes Alan Rickman and Tom Courtenay.
Joel and Ethan Coen wrote the script for the film. Firth plays British art curator Harry Deane, who devises a finely-crafted scheme to con England's richest man and avid art collector, Lionel Shabandar, (Rickman) into purchasing a fake Monet painting. In order to bait his buyer, he recruits a Texas rodeo queen (Diaz) to cross the pond and pose as a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII.
A North American release date has not been announced by CBS Films at this time. Check out the image below and share your thought!
