Rebel Wilson to Star in ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ Remake


MGM is developing a remake of the 1988 comedy classic “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” with Rebel Wilson attached to star.

Steve Martin and Michael Caine teamed up in the original “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” which follows two con men trying to swindle a heiress out of her money. The 1988 film was itself a remake of the script for Marlon Brando and David Niven’s 1964 film “Bedtime Story.”

The story is too old to be commented.

hollywood has jumped the shark.

are executives in hollywood so devoid of any original thought that they only new ideas they can come up with are remakes of movies or remakes of movies where they change genders/race? is anyone else getting tired of this trend or is it just me?

"The updated remake brings con artistry to the 21st century — two female scam artists"

I can't wait until Hollywood starts remaking old films that had female leads and replacing them with male leads.

The Wizard of Oz - Dorothy will now be Frank

Mary Popins - Mary will now be Bob

Carrie - Carrie will now be John

You get the idea...
