Green light for Coens' Gambit E-mail

Did you know the Coen Brothers have other writing projects besides the films they direct?  They re-wrote the script for Gambit and finally got a green light on its production.  When I hear the word "gambit" I immediately think of that character from the X-Men who throws cards and they blow up, but in this case it's actually a 1966 Michael Caine film.  Is it just me, or does it seem like all of his movies get re-made?

So Crime Scene Pictures (a new studio) has picked up the deal and Michael Hoffman has been chosen to direct.  The original film is about a guy trying to steal a statue but everything that can go wrong does.  This sounds exactly like something the Coens would do.  Now I need to see if the original is on Netflix.
