Rebel Wilson to star in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake

Rebel Wilson has signed on to play a con artist in the remake of 1988 film Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

The original movie featured Michael Caine and Steve Martin as swindlers competing to cheat an heiress out of her fortune, and the revamp will be all about the girls.

Rebel will play one of two female con artists attempting to steal from a tech mogul.

The Pitch Perfect star has taken to Twitter to announce the casting news, writing: "The CON is ON!! I will be starring in a remake of DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS for MGM."

Wilson will also produce the film.

Rebel's co-star will be announced in the coming weeks.
