This is old news but according to IMDB the Coens wrote the first draft of the upcoming remake of Gambit. Bo Welch is attached and will be directing from his own rewrite of the Joel and Ethan’s first draft. Colin Firth and Ben Kingsley are slated to act. Apparently it’s a remake of the 1966 “Gambit” starring Michael Caine, Shirley Maclaine, and Herbert Lom. Jennifer Aniston is in talks to star along side Firth. Produced by Graham King, the producer behind “The Aviator”. In the film Firth would play an art curator, working for an eccentric billionaire (Kingsley), who sets up a bumbling heist job – with his boss as the target. Expected to be shot later this year in and around London. Haven’t seen the original, might have to check it out.

  1. Please do not pollute Shirley MacLaine’s great performance with Ms. Aniston. There are many others who would be better for the role.

  2. Not only do i NOT want Jennifer Aniston..but I DO WANT Gerard Butler in the Michael Caine role!!!! It might be fun to pit up-and-coming “3oo” star Butler with someone who’s not a tv stara only like Aniston. How about Angelina Jolie, his co-star from Lara Croft II? Or Scarlett Johannson? or Kate Winslet? or kate Hudson? They’d look great with Gerarda..and all have comic timing! Not Aniston…please. Gerard , yes!

  3. why not Aniston? She is beautiful and has great comic timing as well. I’d love to see her have a shot at something out of the box with the Coens at the helm.

    I for one hope she gets the part!

  4. How unkind you all are. Jennifer Aniston is a fine actress and it would be great to see her have a chance at showing her talent. Stop sterotyping the girl.
