No one knows the strip club world better than Cardi B, and now her knowledge of the industry has landed her a role in the upcoming ‘Hustlers‘ film.
The movie, which is being directed by Lorene Scafaria, will star Cardi, Lili Reinhart, Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles, Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez.
Filming is set to begin in New York on March 22..
The project, originally set up at Annapurna as ‘Hustlers at Scores,’ is inspired by a New York Magazine article by Jessica Pressler. It’s set in New York City in the wake of the financial crisis and follows a crew of savvy former strip club employees who band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients.
That’s a pretty powerful group of women working on this movie. This could be huge.
No word on a release date, but it’ll likely be in 2020. It’s going to be interesting to see Cardi make her film debut, although, I’m assuming she’ll have no problem with it. She puts on an act all the time when she’s on talk shows, and as we mentioned above, she started off as a stripper, so the role won’t be a stretch.
We’ll keep you posted as more details are released.
