Rebel Wilson & Anne Hathaway in First Trailer for Comedy 'The Hustle'
"Who's the mark?" United Artists & MGM have revealed the first trailer for summer comedy The Hustle, a gender-swapped remake of comedy classic Dirty Rotten Scoundrels from 1988. In this one, Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway star as two "down-and-out" con artists, one low rent and the other high class, who team up to take down the dirty rotten men who have wronged them. The original movie involves the two of them participating in a secret "loser leaves town" contest to see who can out scam the other. This one seems to twist that concept a bit, and move it to a different high roller town. Also starring Tim Blake Nelson, Alex Sharp, Ingrid Oliver, Emma Davies, and Douggie McMeekin. The original is a classic, and the way the two play off of each is brilliant. I'm not sure this one will live up to that, but it looks absurd enough.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Chris Addison's The Hustle, direct from MGM's YouTube:
