CBA Films earned the right to distribute the movie “Gambit’ in US. Collin Firth, the recent Oscar Award winner and Cameron Diaz will play the lead roles in the new version of Gambit. Coen brothers have provided the script for the remake.

Collin Firth plays the character of British Art Curator. He convinces a collector, who is wealthy to buy a painting of fake Monet. Cameron Diaz plays the character of a Texas steer roper, who is hired to pretend as the granddaughter of the man in acquiring the painting.

Mike Lobell will produce the movie ‘Gambit’ along with the partners of Crime Scene Pictures Adam Ripp and Rob Paris. Michael Hoffman, who has directed the movie ‘The Last Station’, will direct the movie. Collin Firth was last seen in ‘The King’s Speech’ which won him and the movie many awards.

The movie has been funded by Crime Scene and financed by CAA which dealt the distribution rights in the domestic market. CBS Films has been busy after the success of ‘The Mechanic’ starring Jason Statham in the lead.
