Alliance Films have picked up the rights to distribute Gambit in Canada, the UK and Spain.

Gambit, a caper film written by Joel and Ethan Coen, is set to star Colin Firth (The King’s Speech) and Cameron Diaz (The Green Hornet).

Michael Hoffman is attached to direct.

A British thief (Firth) comes up with a fool-proof plan to steal an expensive statue from one of the richest men in the world. His strategy involves the participation of a beautiful woman (Diaz) who happens to be the spitting image of the rich man’s late wife. But nothing goes as planned.

Gambit will shoot in London this May.
