Marlon Wayans Joins 'The Ladykillers' Cast[Wednesday, May 7th, 2003]
Marlon Wayans ('Scary Movie') is set to appear opposite Tom Hanks in the Coen brothers-directed remake of Ladykillers, according to Hollywood Reporter.
A remake of the 1955 comedy starring Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers, 'Ladykillers' centers on an eccentric Southern professor (Hanks) who puts together a gang of double-crossing thieves to rob a riverboat casino. They rent a room in an old woman's house, but when she discovers the scheme, somebody has to kill her. The landlady proves tough to dispatch, however. Wayans will play one of the thieves.
The project will be penned by Joel and Ethan Coen and produced by Tom Jacobson, Barry Sonnenfeld, Barry Josephson and Ethan Coen for Touchstone Pictures.
