the hustle trailer new

It’s clear Jac Schaeffer is going to be a writer we’re following for a long time, since she wrote a screenplay for Black Widow and is running Marvel’s WandaVision for Disney+. Even now, her current film captures the hearts of ‘80s movie buffs like me. The Hustle is a remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels with Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway in the roles originated by Steve Martin and Michael Caine.

Penny (Wilson) is a petty con artist catfishing guys. Josephine (Hathaway) is a high class European working the long con. When Penny comes to town and threatens Josephine’s game, she tries to take Penny under her wing instead. Ultimately, they pick a target to see who can con first and win the territory.

Schaeffer took a break from developing WandaVision to discuss The Hustle by phone. Schaeffer was also a writer on Captain Marvel and wrote the short Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, and directed her own screenplay, TiMER. The Hustle is in theaters now.
