gambit-alan-rickman-the-con-is-on

If you are a true fan of Alan Rickman, and let’s face, we ALL are, then this next film to be released will be one that you do not want to miss! Gambit stars the brilliance of Alan Rickman, Colin Firth, and Cameron Diaz and opens in the UK on November 21. Directed by Michael Hoffman, Gambit is about private art curator Harry Deane (Firth) who devises a scheme with the help of Texas rodeo queen (Diaz) to con England’s richest man into purchasing a fake Monet painting. This film is filled with comedic elements without being described as a comedy. There is a modest amount of nudity in the film including a completely nude Alan Rickman – who portrayed Professor Snape in the Harry Potter films. He is completely unabashed by nudity saying, “You just have to get on with it, there’s no choice, OK, right, here we go!” How many of you just read that with Snape’s voice in your head? We will have a full report from the Apple Store coming soon. Is this a film that you will be watching? Let us know in the comments below. Read More »

According to 3GuysOnALondonTourBus, the stars of the film (which also includes Colin Firth, Stanley Tucci, & Cameron Diaz) are going to make an appearance at the Apple Store on Regent Street in London, this coming Wednesday November 7 from 8-9 p.m. The hour long discussion will be regarding the film and will include not only Alan, but Colin Firth, Cameron Diaz, Tom Courtenay, and director Michael Hoffman.

Are there any Alan Rickman fans out there? Yeah, I am sure there are still a few! We now have the first sighting of legendary actor Alan Rickman – who famously portrayed Professor Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films – as former United States President Ronald Reagan for his upcoming film The Butler. The Butler will tell the true story of Eugen Allen, a butler at the White House from 1952 to 1986. Allen will be played by Forest Whitaker, while his on-screen wife is being portrayed by Oprah Winfrey, who posted the picture of Rickman on her Twitter page.

John Cusack and Robin Williams also star, Cusack playing President Richard Nixon and Williams playing President Dwight Eisenhower, while James Marsden takes on President John F. Kennedy and Liev Schreiber plays President Lyndon Johnson.
