Once I was a child, I liked Soiled Rotten Scoundrels. Individuals neglect how weird and enchanting it was to see Michael Caine in that position, one thing faux-debonair, comedic and foolish, contemplating his profession as much as that time was so heavy on the dramatic roles. Caine and Steve Martin originated the roles of two con males attempting to woo a younger heiress, and whereas the movie is ideal as-is, it appears that evidently all the pieces previous is new once more and naturally they’re going to remake it. I don’t really feel the kneejerk of “they’re destroying my childhood” with this remake although. Largely as a result of this remake appears more and more cool. Insurgent Wilson has been connected to it for months, and now Anne Hathaway is circling the undertaking too. I imply… that feels like one thing I’d watch. And it’s known as NASTY WOMEN. Please. Take my cash now.
Anne Hathaway is on the verge of turning into a nasty lady. EW has confirmed that the Academy Award-winner is in talks to star alongside Insurgent Wilson in Nasty Girls, a remake of Soiled Rotten Scoundrels. The actresses will play dueling rip-off artists competing to con a naive tech prodigy out of his fortune.
Director Frank Ozs Soiled Rotten Scoundrels was launched in 1988 and starred Steve Martin and Michael Caine because the felony rivals. Wilson’s involvement within the upcoming model was reported again in August, earlier than the brand new title was set. The Pitch Excellent star is producing the undertaking with Roger Birnbaum (The Magnificent Seven). Jac Schaeffer, who additionally penned Hathaway’s upcoming movie The Bathe, wrote the screenplay.
That is the most recent feminine pushed team-up for Hathaway, who’s becoming a member of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, and extra in Ocean’s Eight.
I imply… simply the concept of Insurgent Wilson and Anne Hathaway going to head-to-head to attempt to out-seduce a naïve tech man is bringing a smile to my face. Contemplating I’m a Hathaway Apologist, I’ve at all times thought she was an underrated comedic actress. I additionally suppose Anne has had some points getting the sorts of roles she needs and thinks she deserves, so she’s within the midst of some form of profession reboot. There appears to be an emphasis on extra ensemble movies, extra crowd-pleasing comedies and that form of factor. As for Insurgent… I hope that is good.
