According to reports, Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) is in talks to direct ‘Gambit’. ‘Gambit’ is a remake of the 1966 British caper, which starred Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine. Ethan Coen will script the remake. Here is a brief synopsis of the original:
In Hong Kong, a dapper English cat burglar enlists the aid of a Eurasian dancer, to help him in an elaborate scheme to grab an age-old artifact from the heavily secured palace of a powerful Middle Eastern tycoon. Unfortunately, the foolproof scheme begins to backfire shortly after it starts and the duo must pull out all the stops if they hope to come out on top.
