The former stars and writers plan to shoot a “guerilla-style” adaptation.

Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver will reprise their roles on the cancelled FX show, The Riches, in a new movie, the BBC reports.

“We’ve had a meeting and the writers are going to go off and slam out a story,” Izzard told the BBC. “We’re going to raise money like Barack Obama through the Internet, and we’re going to shoot it guerilla-style.”

The critically acclaimed show about Wayne and Dahlia Malloy, two con artists who pose as a well-off couple, was cancelled in April after just two seasons.

Izzard says the time for a big screen adaptation couldn’t be better. “Everything’s getting tight, money’s getting tight and there’s the credit crunch – so it’s the time to go and be inventive.”

Izzard can currently be seen in the West End performing his new stand-up show, Stripped, while Driver remains occupied with her two-month-old son, Henry. She continues to keep the father’s identity a secret.


Side note, anybody else see Todd Stashwick in Ghost Whisperer and think "Dale?! What the hell are you doing here?!"

they should really continue the show.. sheesh.. i really like Minnie Driver.. she's an awesome actress.. why the hell did they cancel The Riches anyway?? So, they could replace it with a reality show or was it because of financial reasons?? Maybe a little bit of both?? Whatever.. i just want the show back..
