Queen supreme Jennifer Lopez and Crazy Rich Asians goddess Constance Wu will be joined by a star-studded cast in their upcoming strip club revenge flick, Hustlers.
Inspired by a 2016 New York Magazine article, Hustlers centers on a gang of ex strip club workers who join forces to take down their wealthy, Wall Street clients, scamming them out of thousands of dollarydoos.
The freshly announced cast includes rapper Cardi B, Riverdale‘s Lili Reinhart, ’90s legend Julia Stiles, Scream Queens star Keke Palmer and acclaimed actress Mercedes Ruehl.
The film marks Cardi’s cinematic debut and it’s a particularly poignant one for the singer as she has been very open about her past as a stripper in New York before kicking off her music career.
“We could not have asked for a more exciting or talented lineup of performers to join our cast,” said Adam Fogelson, Chairman of STXfilms. “STX is thrilled to reunite with Jennifer, Elaine and Benny to bring this unexpected, entertaining and often shocking story to the big screen for audiences worldwide.”
Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World) is writing and directing the film which is set to start shooting March 22 in New York.
“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with this dynamic group of women,” Scafaria said in a statement. “We’re grateful to have assembled such a powerhouse cast and can’t wait to start filming at the end of the week.”
