Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson Scam the Hell Out of Rich Men in The Hustle Trailer
In the new trailer for The Hustle, Anne Hathaway adopts a posh British accent to play an experienced scam artist who takes Rebel Wilson under her very glamorous wing so they can scam a billionaire together — so, yeah, we're definitely seeing this.
The hilarious buddy comedy — which was originally titled Nasty Women and is a gender-swapped version of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels — was directed by Chris Addison and focuses on seeing Wilson and Hathaway's characters taking down the men who have wronged them. Previously, the roles were played by Steve Martin and Michael Caine in the 1988 crime comedy (as well as Marlon Brando and David Niven in the 1964 original, Bedtime Story). Fortunately, the latest iteration of the caper promises stunning views of mansions, diamonds, Hathaway's extensive collection of gowns, and plenty of physical comedy from Wilson.
Tim Blake Nelson, Alex Sharp, Ingrid Oliver, and Emma Davies also star in the film, which will hit theaters on May 10.
