Rebel Wilson Is Starring in a Gender-Swapped ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ Remake
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is the latest 80s movie to be remade with a gender swap for modern audiences. The classic Steve Martin and Michael Caine comedy is going to be reimagined with Rebel Wilson in a starring role — no word on who will play the other scoundrel. The 1988 original is about “two con-men, one unsophisticated and one suave, in the French Riviera who join forces to swindle a supposed heiress.” This new one, to be written by Jac Schaeffer, will be similar, but will involve two con-WOMEN trying to swindle a tech prodigy. Will this news create another wave of misogynistic complaining, as we saw with Ghostbusters? I sure hope not, but the internet and its worst users never fail to disappoint.
