Aniston set for Gambit

Mar 30, 2004 by Ian Evans

Jennifer Aniston’s not resting now that Friends is over.

Aniston has signed the dotted line on a remake of Gambit, a 1966 British crime caper that starred Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine. The film follows a thief who devises a plan to steal a statue from one of the world’s richest man. A beautiful woman who looks just like the target’s late wife is the key to the plan that starts to fall apart.

Though nothing’s been inked, there are inklings that Sir Ben Kingsley will be the crime’s intended victim.
