Additionally, a press release for the comedy film reveals that Stanley Tucci and Cloris Leachman have been tapped to play in the movie.
"Gambit" has got its first official image. The photo sees Cameron Diaz and Colin Firth, who take the lead roles of PJ Puznowski and Harry Deane respectively, staring into the camera in their costumes.
In the meantime, cast ensemble for the upcoming movie of the same name has also grown. On a press release, CBS Films announces that Stanley Tucci and Cloris Leachman have also been added to support the film.
The film, whose production takes place in London and New Mexico, centers its story on British art curator Deane who develops a scheme to deceive England's art collector, Lionel Shabandar (Alan Rickman) into purchasing a fake Monet painting. Thus, he takes a Texas rodeo queen (Diaz) with him to act as a woman whose grandfather liberated the art work at the end of World War II.
While CBS Films has the rights to distribute "Gambit" in the U.S., FilmNation Entertainment will be distributing the pic outside the nation. Alliance Films will handle the distribution in Canada, Momentum Pictures in the U.K., and Aurum Productions in Spain.
"Gambit" is a remake of 1966's film of the same name, which starred Shirley MacLaine and Michael Caine. The upcoming comedy movie has Michael Hoffman serve behind the lens, with Ethan and Joel Coen penning the script.
