Another gender-swapped remake is in the works with “Pitch Perfect” star Rebel Wilson attached to star in a remake of the classic 1988 comedy “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” at MGM.
The original, itself a remake of the Marlon Brando and David Niven-led 1964 film “Bedtime Story,” followed two scam artists (Michael Caine, Steve Martin) as they set their sights on a wealthy heiress.
The new take revolves around two female con artists, one from high society and the other much more down to earth, who attempt to swindle an unsuspecting young tech executive out of his fortune.
Roger Birnbaum will produce. Wilson also remains attached to a remake of the 1980 Goldie Hawn comedy “Private Benjamin”.
