Hathaway is no-doubt bringing her Ocean's 8–honed heist chops to The Hustle (she was the best part of that movie, and I won't be challenged), while Wilson delivers the riotous physical comedy she's known for in movies like Pitch Perfect and the recently-released romantic comedy Isn't It Romantic.
Hathaway plays a seasoned scammer who teaches Wilson "her sugar baby ways," which include performative vulnerability, knife-throwing skills, and blending in with one's surroundings.
Thanks to Anna Delvey, who notoriously grifted her way through SoHo (and ended up inspiring not one but two competing TV shows about her con) and the entire Fyre Festival fiasco, the word "scammer" has been on the tip of everyone's tongues for at least two years now.
In this adaptation of Frank Oz's 1988 film Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, which starred Steve Martin and Michael Caine, it appears that Rebel Wilson has met her match in Anne Hathaway.
This is about to be the movie of the summer. 🙌 https://t.co/SGElMUIEwl— Glamour (@glamourmag) June 6, 2019
