The primary trailer for the female-fronted remake of the 1988 comedy “Soiled Rotten Scoundrels,” which spawned a Broadway musical of the identical title, dropped on Tuesday. The video reveals the Oscar-winning Hathaway leaning into the comedy motion style as soon as once more with presumably hilarious outcomes.
Directed by Chris Addison with a script from “Captain Marvel” co-screenwriter Jac Schaeffer, “The Hustle” finds the ever-so-glamorous Hathaway teaming up with a petty thief performed by Wilson to show her the artwork of the rip-off. The odd couple swindle one man after the following with the assistance of some knife abilities, faux crying, makeovers and ― yikes ― a blind gag.
“Why are girls higher suited to the con than males?” Hathaway asks within the trailer, to which Wilson responds, “Trigger we’re used to faking it.”
Proper when everybody had simply forgotten about her accent in “One Day,” Hathaway is outwardly committing after which some to a Julie Andrews-esque affectation for the brand new movie. But it surely works higher right here given how all the things within the film screams excessive.
“The Hustle” hits theaters on Could 10.
