The first trailer for Gambit is out and it features a nude Alan Rickman.
Gambit stars Colin Firth as Harry Deane, an art curator who tries to con England’s most powerful art collector (Rickman) into buying a fake Monet painting. To pull off the scheme, he hires an American rodeo queen (Cameron Diaz) to pretend to be the granddaughter of a WWII man who liberated the painting in question. The film is a remake of the 1966 movie starring Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine. Check out the trailer below:
Firth signed on to Gambit around the time he accepted his Oscar for The King’s Speech. The script was penned by the Coen Brothers, who did a wonderful job reinventing the John Wayne Western True Grit,.
Gambit also stars Stanley Tucci, Cloris Leachman and Tom Courtenay. It opens in theaters in 2013.
