Cameron Diaz and Colin Firth to Star in Coen Bros Written “Gambit”

2 Feb

by Chris Petersen

It’s no secret here that both Pac and I have a strong belief that Cameron Diaz ruins almost every film she is in. She even managed to almost bring down my favorite film, Martin Scorcese‘s Gangs of New York. But, now that she has been cast opposite Oscar Nominee Colin Firth in a remake of the 1966 film Gambit, will she be able to ruin the writing of the famous scribes, the Coen Brothers?

Challenge Accepted

The film, which begins shooting in May, will be directed by Michael Hoffman (The Last Station, The Emperor’s Club) is a comedy caper, and revolves around an art curator (Firth), who tries to trick a wealthy collector into buying a fake Monet painting. Diaz will be playing the part of PJ Puznowski, a Texas native who works with the curator by pretending to be a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting during World War II.

Will she do it again? Or will the script by the Coen Brothers and Colin Firth’s acting be able to counteract her black magic?

    LOL…this is funny but true…she’s ruined every movie she’s been in after The Mask…although I respectfully submit that she didn’t ruin In Her Shoes, which turned out to be a pretty good movie, her aside (feel free to shoot me for my girlie tastes ;-))

      Haha. Don’t worry about it, I only saw like 10 minutes of In Her Shoes, so I don’t feel like I can comment about it.

      “…every movie she’s been in after The Mask”, that’s pretty sad considering that was her very first movie! I’ve liked a lot of movies despite her (Any Given Sunday, Very Bad Things, Gangs of New York) so I don’t expect her to ruin this film either. It does depend on her role though, it was baffling for me to watch Knight and Day and see how good she made Tom Cruise look with her lack of performance.
