Cameron Diaz To Try A Texas Accent

Tuesday, February 1 by

Cameron Diaz, currently starring in The Green Hornet, the movie that half your friends hated, has joined the cast of the Joel and Ethan Coen scripted Gambit, which is a remake of the 1966 film of the same name. Michael Hoffman, director of The Last Station, will go behind the camera to tell the story of a con man (Colin Firth) who aims to grift an art collector into buying a fake Monet painting. Diaz will play a Texas steer roper(!) who poses as the daughter of the man who supposedly acquired the painting at the end of World War II. Gambit starts shooting in London this May. It’ll be interesting to hear Diaz’s approximation of a Texas accent, and Firth’s first stutter-free performance since The King’s Speech. (Deadline)
