CBS Films acquires GAMBIT
CBS Films have acquired the North American distribution rights to GAMBIT, the Joel and Ethan Coen scripted remake of the 1966 British caper classic.
Michael Hoffman (THE LAST STATION) is attached to direct, with Colin Firth (THE KING'S SPEECH) and Cameron Diaz (THE GREEN HORNET) on board as the two main leads.
GAMBIT centers on an art curator (Firth) who enlists a Texas rodeo queen (Diaz) in a scam to con England's richest man.
Crime Scene Pictures are financing the film, with production expected to start in London this May.
