Rebel Wilson Will Star In Gender-Flipped Remake Of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels!

no title

We’re loving this trend of gender-flipped reboots!

On Thursday, it was revealed that Rebel Wilson will be starring in a remake of the 1988 flick Dirty Rotten Scoundrels!

The original film stars Michael Caine and Steve Martin as confidence men, but this new version brings the movie into the 21st century… all with a feminine spin!

While the original told the tale of two men competing to cheat an heiress out of her money, the reboot will follow two female con artists competing to weasel a tech whiz out of his riches.

The Pitch Perfect star took to Twitter on Tuesday to share the exciting news, posting:

Miz Wilson will also be producing the film, alongside Roger Birnbaum.

Fun fact: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels was itself a reimagining of the 1964 flick Bedtime Story. In other words, this remake train has been chugging a long time…

No announcement yet on who will play Rebel’s rival, but assuming she’s in the Martin role of the rookie upstart, we’d LOVE to see someone classy take on the refined role of Caine… maybe Helen Mirren??

Are U excited for this remake, Perezcious readers?!
