Gambit centers on British art curator Harry Deane (Firth) who devises a finely-crafted scheme to con England’s richest man and avid art collector, Lionel Shabandar, (Rickman) into purchasing a fake Monet painting. In order to bait his buyer, he recruits a Texas rodeo queen (Diaz) to cross the pond and pose as a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII.
Mike Lobell (The Freshman, Honeymoon in Vegas) produces along with Crime Scene Pictures partners Adam Ripp and Rob Paris. Rizal Risjad and Philip Elway executive produce.
