Variety reports that Chris Addison has taken over as director of Nasty Women , a remake of the classic comedy 1988 "Inveterate Scammers."|
Addison , who until then was known only for the production of TV series ("Thick of Things"), will debut on the big screen. He also, being an actor and comedian, starred in such TV series as "Doctor Who" and "Skins". The script will be written by Jacqueline Schaeffer (The Timer).
The film will reimagine the comedy by Frank Oz, the plot of which centered on two charming crooks played by Michael Caine and Steve Martin. Competing among themselves, they tried to fool one rich lady. In a future film from the studio MGM , everything is reversed, and the main roles went to Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson. The girls will play high-class swindlers and a simpler swindler who intend to lead a wealthy gentleman by the nose in pursuit of his wealth.
" Dastardly Scammers " is a remake of Ralph Levy's 1964 film "Bedtime Story" with Marlon Brando, David Niven and Shirley Jones.
