    Thanks to the popularity of Ghostbusters, Hollywood studios are slowly opening their eyes to the existence of women, who up until recently were thought to be incapable of starring in remakes of movies that originally starred men.

    The latest experiment in making movies that aren’t all about dudes is an update of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, the 1988 comedy starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine as con men who are trying to steal money from an heiress. Variety reports that Rebel Wilson will star in a remake of the film as one of the eponymous scoundrels; the other scoundrel hasn’t been cast yet, but Variety says that together they’ll be trying to get money from “a naive tech prodigy” this time around.

    MGM's modern-day reimagining, to be penned by Jac Schaeffer, will star two female scam artists who team-up to bamboozle a tech prodigy out of his earned fortune.

    Women have been bamboozling men out of fortunes for a long time, I'm just saying.

    " Hollywood studios are slowly opening their eyes to the existence of women, who up until recently were thought to be incapable of starring in remakes of movies that originally starred men. "

    The real story is why Hollywood is incapable of original stories, and resort to reboots?, and then whine about why they are losing audience numbers.
    Zero effort. F*ck them.

    I understand they're developing an all female version of "Tombstone," with Sandra Bernhard as Doc Holliday.

    Just saw the Andy Griffith episode "Floyd, the Gay Deceiver" last night. A classic.

    She was kind of funny on her TV show, but she was horrible in "How To Be Single". Ugh.

    "Thanks to the popularity of Ghostbusters..." :hilarious:

    Enough with this fruity shit already. How long before they remake Lord of the Flies with an all-female cast?
