Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is set to get the female treatment, with a remake called Nasty Women, directed by Chris Addison. The 1988 film is a remake of the 1964 flop Bedtime Story.
This will be Chris Addison’s directorial debut for the big screen, with stars Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson taking on Michael Caine and Steve Martin’s roles of high class and low class conmen. Rebel Wilson has already tweeted her excitement to work with Chris Addison.
In the original film the conmen collide in the resort of Beaumont-sur-Mer, deciding the town isn’t big enough for the both of ’em, they compete to swindle a carefully selected ‘mark’, an American heiress out of her fortune. In Nasty Women, the mark will be a naive tech prodigy.
