Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz team up in the remake of 1966 crime caper Gambit, as the first trailer for the Joel and Ethan Coen penned film arrives online.
Michael Hoffman (The Last Station, One Fine Day) directs this modern retelling which looks to bring a splash of the Coens’ humour to an Oceans Eleven style heist flick.
Firth plays a London art curator working for billionaire Lionel Shahbander (Rickman) who hires a ditzy Texan rodeo queen (Diaz) to help him con his boss into buying a fake Monet painting.
In the original, Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine took the lead roles, and now Firth and Diaz look to have a similar chemistry on screen here.
With an occasionally naked Rickman, as well as Stanley Tucci and Cloris Leachman rounding out the cast, Gambit looks set to be a thrilling and hilarious film in true Coen brothers style.
It hits cinemas early 2013.
