Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer. Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway?
That’s right, the Pitch Perfect 3 and Colossal stars are teaming up to become the most unlikely duo in a new comedy called The Hustle.

The forthcoming flick, directed by Chris Addison (Veep), is a female-led remake of the 1988 comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels that stars Wilson and Hathaway as down-on-their-luck con artists who engage in a contest to see who between the two of them is the best hustler. The only catch? The loser has to leave town.
May the best con win.
