Based on the classic 1955 Ealing comedy. A dim gang of crooks plans to rob a River Boat Casino in the Deep South of the USA. They rent a house to plan their heist - but the innocent old landlady constantly and accidentally symies their plans. So they decide to bump her off. However - this is a lot harder and funnier than they first think.
There would be no way this could succeed except for three words: Ethan & Joel Coen. The original 'The Ladykillers' starred Alistair Sim, Alec Guiness Peter Sellers, and Herbert Lom. It's not widely known in the States, so it's unlikely anyone will be making comparisons over there. However in the UK, it has many admirers as one of the funniest black comedies ever- and people will be waiting to pounce. But I have a funny feeling that those wacky Coen's can pull it off. Here's hoping.
