Deadline is reporting that MGM has set a release date for Anne and Rebel’s Nasty Women. Mentioned as “Untitled Anne Hathaway-Rebel Wilson MGM Comedy”, the film will reach theaters in August 10.
In the pic scripted by Jac Schaeffer, Hathaway and Wilson play two female scam artists, one low rent and the other high class, who compete to swindle a naive tech prodigy out of his fortune. Wilson and Roger Birnbaum are producing along with Cave 76 Productions and Camp Sugar Productions.
Anne was photographed this Monday (23) in Mallorca, Spain, while filming scenes for her upcoming movie, Nasty Woman.
Hathaway co-stars alongside Rebel Wilson in the remake of the 1988 movie, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. The story follows two down-and-out con artists who engage in a “loser leaves town” contest.

MGM‘s upcoming gender swapped remake of Frank Oz’s Dirty Rotten Scoundrels appears to have found a pair of stars. Deadline reports that Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway is in talks to join Pitch Perfect franchise star Rebel Wilson in the project, titled Nasty Women. They’ll play variations on the roles originally played by Michael Caine and Steve Martin in the 1988 original.
Scripted by Jac Schaeffer, Nasty Women is based on the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels script written by Dale Launer, Stanley Shapiro, and Paul Henning. Dirty Rotten Scoundrel was, in turn, based on Stanley Shapiro and Paul Henning’s 1964 script, Bedtime Story. Directed by Ralph Levy, Bedtime Story features Marlon Brando and David Niven in the respective Wilson/Martin and Hathaway/Caine roles.
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels stars Martin as a low class con artist who makes a bet with a high class confidence man (Caine) to see who can swindle an heiress out of $50,000 (and sex) first. It later was adapted into a successful stage musical in 2005. The new version will update the story by putting the focus on two lady cons attempting to get money from a rich tech prodigy.
