Watch Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson in First Trailer for “The Hustle”

Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson in "The Hustle"

If you’ve ever wondered what it would look like if Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson tried to scam their way to the top, their new movie The Hustle is here to answer that question. The first trailer for this buddy comedy is here, and it shows the two stars forming an unlikely con artist duo.

Hathaway and Wilson play a pair of scam artists who join their forces to take down the men who wronged them. One of them is a glamorous pro, who’s in charge of teaching her low-rent partner her ways and introducing her to the art of high class cons.

Needless to say, these two characters are polar opposites, and their dynamics is the main source of humor in this remake of 1988 comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine.

The Hustle continues the trend of gender-swapped remakes, started by Ghostbusters and Ocean’s Eight, and it’s scheduled for May 10 release. It will serve as feature directorial debut for filmmaker Chris Addison, known for his work of HBO series Veep.
