Anne Hathaway will join Rebel Wilson in a gender-reversed remake of the 1988 comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
The new film has been renamed Nasty Women. It is rumoured that the title refers to President elect Donald Trump’s insult of Hillary Clinton during one of their televised debates in 2016.
Hathaway and Wilson will take on the con artist roles originally played by Michael Caine and Steve Martin.
Little is known about the plot specifics yet but it’s believed that, as in the first film, there will be class difference between the pair and they will be attempting to swindle a tech prodigy out of his fortune.
The script comes from Jac Schaeffer, who has also penned The Shower, an upcoming comedy also set to star Hathaway, about a baby shower which gets interrupted by an alien invasion.
Here’s the trailer for the original to give you an idea of what to expect:
