Cardi B is joining vets Jennifer Lopez, Keke Palmer, Constance Wu, Julia Stiles, Lili Reinhart, and Mercedes Ruehl in a film that is about to have the entire industry talking about it for a while. “Hustlers”, which will be directed by Lorene Scafaria, is inspired by a New York Magazine article by Jessica Pressler. It’s set in New York City and follows a crew of strip club employees who turn the tables on their wealthy Wall Street clients amidst the financial crisis. “Hustlers” will reportedly begin shooting in New York on March 22nd.

STXfilms is producing the film alongside Benny Medina, Jennifer Lopez, and Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas. Lorene Scafaria says of the project, “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with this dynamic group of women. We’re grateful to have assembled such a powerhouse cast and can’t wait to start filming.”
With Cardi being a certified hustler in her own right, we have no doubt she will absolutely nail this role.
