After his Oscar-winning role in The King’s Speech, Colin Firth, for some reason, has decided to star in a comedy, entitled Gambit opposite Cameron Diaz.
For some time, I thought this was a rumor, and kind of hoped it was. But n a press release yesterday producers not only confirmed that this project is really happening by showing us the first image of Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz on set.
They also revealed the impressive cast to star alongside Firth and Diaz; Stanley Tucci and Cloris Leachman have both been confirmed for roles, alongside Alan Rickman as the wealthy art collector whom Firth and Diaz are trying to rip off.
No word is still said about Tucci and Leachman role. Diaz is playing a Texas rodeo queen.
