Imagine the women of “Ocean’s Eight” as exotic dancers and you have the gist of “Hustlers”, an upcoming heist movie boasting an all-star cast headed by Jennifer Lopez.
“Hustlers” is based on the true story of a group of strippers who hatch a scheme to rip off thousands of dollars from their Wall Street clients, based on New York Magazine‘s story, The Hustlers at Scores.
In addition to J.Lo, “Hustlers” features singer Lizzo, Lili Reinhart (“Riverdale”), Constance Wu (“Crazy Rich Asians”), Julia Stiles (“Dexter”), Madeline Brewer (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) and Keke Palmer (“Star”).
A few months back, Cardi B spoke with ET about her role in the film.
“Even though my schedule’s busy, I had to be in this movie,” she said. “This movie is something I can relate [to]… All the actresses in the movie, I can tell them, like, ‘No no no, this is how it goes,’ because like, the club that the movie is based on, that’s the type of club that I worked in.”
Just how much Cardi B appears in the movie, however, remains to be seen, as co-star Brewer recently told Cosmopolitan that the “Bodak Yellow” rapper only shot for one day due to her “insane schedule.”
“Hustlers” shimmies its way into theatres on September 13.
