In the movie written by Joel and Ethan Coen (The Coen Brothers last film, was True Grit), Firth plays British art curator Harry Deane, 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.
The film will also be shooting in New Mexico later in the production. No news on the release date as yet.
