The Hustle (M): Another in the line of female remakes (eg Ghostbusters) this comedy is a remake of the 1988 comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (with Michael Caine and Steve Martin), itself a remake of the 1964 film Bedtime Story (with Marlon Brando and David Niven).

It's directed by Welsh comedian Chris Addison (who directed many episodes of Veep).
