After being cheated on by movie wives Jennifer Aniston and Renee Zellweger, actor John C Reilly is set to get his own back by playing the bad guy.

The OSCAR-nominated screen star, who starred as Aniston's husband in THE GOOD GIRL and Zellweger's long-suffering spouse in hit musical Chicago, has teamed up with Steven Soderbergh and George Clooney's production company SECTION EIGHT for CRIMINAL, a remake of the Argentine con-man caper NINE QUEENS.

The film is scheduled to begin production in June (03).

Co-star Diego Luna of Y Tu Mama Tambien and FRIDA fame will play Reilly's partner in a lucrative scam involving forged postage stamps.
