MGM has released the first trailer for the upcoming comedy THE HUSTLE, which is a gender-swapped remake of the 1988 film DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS, which itself was a remake of a 1964 film called BEDTIME STORY. This new iteration hails from director Chris Addison (‘Veep’) and stars Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson as a pair of con artists who team up to take on the men who have wronged them. Hathaway’s character is a refined pro, whereas Wilson’s character is a scrappy street con artist. Hathaway’s character then takes it upon herself to teach Wilson’s character in the art of the high class con.
The film looks funny enough and has some solid laughs. It was shot back in 2017 and was originally supposed to be released last year, and MGM has finally settled on a prime May release date for the pic. But yeah, if the chemistry between Hathaway and Wilson is solid, this should be a fun time.
THE HUSTLE also stars Alex Sharp, Tim Blake Nelson, and Dean Norris. The film opens in theaters on May 10th.
