Colin Firth, Alan Rickman and Cameron Diaz star in the first clip from Gambit
A new short and very fuzzy clip from the upcoming heist film GAMBIT has been released and I’m now slightly intrigued. GAMBIT was one of those films I had heard about, but it just didn’t sound that great even though Colin Firth and Alan Rickman are fantastic. GAMBIT was written by Joel and Ethan Cohen, so you know that it will be at least moderately smart and entertaining, but the one thing that threw me off from the get-go was that Cameron Diaz was attached. Not that I have anything against Cameron Diaz, I’m just not entirely convinced she meshes well with Colin Firth and Alan Rickman.
GAMBIT follows an art curator who decides to get revenge on his boss by conning him to buy a fake Monet. Unfortunately, his plan requires the help of a Texas rodeo queen (Cameron Diaz) who has a pretty awful accent. Directed by Michael Hoffman, GAMBIT stars: Colin Firth, Alan Rickman, Cameron Diaz, Stanley Tucci, Cloris Leachman and Anna Skellern. There is no U.S. release date for the film at this time. Check out the short clip below.
