2011 Anglo Fan Favorites finalists Colin Firth and Alan Rickman face off in the trailer for Gambit, a remake of the 1966 Michael Caine/Shirley MacLaine classic. A twangy Cameron Diaz also stars in the Coen Brothers-penned flick, which is set for a 2013 release.

The caper stars Firth as an art curator who concocts a scheme to sell a fake Monet to his horrible boss (played with skeevy aplomb by Mr. Rickman) and pocket the cash. And he enlists a Texas rodeo queen (Diaz, of course) to help him pull it off.

And, yes, Rickman is naked in the trailer (the naughty bits hidden):

His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
