The Hustle – previously entitled Nasty Women – is a remake of sorts of 1988’s Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (that starred Steve Martin and Michael Caine), that itself was a remake of an earlier film, Bedtime Story (that didn’t). This time, the two leads are female, with Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway headlining the movie. Also in the ensemble are Alex Sharp, Tim Blake Nelson and Dean Norris. The script was penned by Jac Schaeffer.
And now we have the first trailer for the film, too. But you probably guessed that from the headline to the article. That notwithstanding, it looks like this…
The movie lands in UK cinemas on May 10th.
