Potential remake

A remake of Gambit has been mooted for several years. Joel and Ethan Coen completed a screenplay which was expected to be released in 2009. However Colin Firth, who was rumoured to star as Harry Dean, said in September 2008 "No! It’s a complete lie. It’s been on IMDB and just sitting there" and "The Coen brothers have written an absolutely brilliant script." Other personnel lined up for the remake included Hugh Grant, Ben Kingsley, Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Aniston.[2]
