Rebel Wilson film preps in UK

Rebel Wilson A female-led remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is in pre-production in the UK starring Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway. 

Comedy caper Nasty Women marks the directorial feature debut of UK writer/comedian Chris Addison, whose experience behind the camera in the US has included directing episodes of comedy Playing House and political satire Veep. 

Wilson joins Roger Birnbaum to produce the forthcoming film, which is written by Jac Schaeffer for US studio giant MGM.

It is based on the 1988 comedy starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine as a couple of conmen, which in turn was a reboot of the 1964 feature Bedtime Story with Marlon Brando and David Niven.
