This time the story of scheming con-artists stars Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson, the former a high-class trickster and the latter a loudmouthed crook, who set a wealthy target in their sights.

"Who's the mark?" United Artists & MGM have revealed the first trailer for summer comedy The Hustle, a gender-swapped remake of comedy classic Dirty Rotten Scoundrels from 1988. Here's hoping he can deliver something fresh and amusing, considering how much love there is for Frank Oz's 1988 original, starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine as the two swindlers.

In the trailer, Wilson poses as a grieving sister seeking her missing sibling. "She's been taken by men who sell hot white virgins to kajillionaires on yachts", she tells a stranger on a train, racial specificity and all.

Roger Birnbaum (The Magnificent Seven) produced the film, while Jac Schaeffer, Stanley Shapiro, Paul Henning, and Dale Launer are credited as screenwriters on the project. Directed by Chris Addison, the film also stars Tim Blake Nelson, Alex Sharp, Ingrid Oliver and Emma Davies.

MGM releases The Hustle to theaters on May 10. Check out the trailer above.
