Queen Latifah is in talks to join Diane Keaton in Mad Money, a remake of the British comedy Hot Money, according to Production Weekly.
The British telepic was based on the true story of three cleaners who were determined to get more money from the British Treasury than their night shift afforded them, but the new version will be transported to contemporary America.
In the crime caper, three working-class women conspire to rob their employer. The film is narrated by Keaton’s character Bridget.
Callie Khouri is directing for MGM. Production is scheduled to begin late March in Shreveport, Louisiana.
