Colin Firth stars in a new clip from Gambit
Check out the heist movie
Today we’ve got a clip from Colin Firth’s latest, Gambit.

The film is actually a remake of a 1966 movie starring Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine and the two share the common story of a pair who team up to steal a priceless piece of art from a wealthy collector.


The remake has been in and out of production since the original arrived more than 45 years ago. It moved closer in the 90s with a variety of directors attached (like Alexander Payne and Mike Nicols) but didn’t truly gain steam until American screenwriters Joel and Ethan Coen came on board for an extensive rewrite which shifted the action to the United States.

Colin Firth may seem like the perfect 21st century replacement for Caine and he was pencilled in for the project for half a decade before production finally began. He stars opposite Cameron Diaz (in the MacLaine role) as well as Alan Rickman and Stanley Tucci in a film directed by Michael Hoffman (The Last Station).

We’ve got a clip from the film which shows the rather tenuous grasp which Harry Deane (that’s Firth) has on how feckless he is in real life. Check it out.


Gambit is in cinemas from the 21st of November. Check back soon for our review.
