The very first teaser has arrived for the hotly anticipated new heist 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.
Jennifer Lopez leads a cast of qweens including Crazy Rich Asians actress Constance Wu, Riverdale‘s Lili Reinhart, ’90s legend Julia Stiles, Scream Queens star Keke Palmer, flute-wielding goddess Lizzo and one Cardi B.
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.
Lopez plays Ramona, a fur-coat wearing exotic dancer. Wu portrays Destiny, a shopaholic who loves to party. Meanwhile, Reinhart’s character, Annabelle, is depicted as a selfie-taking homebody who’s also taking to the stage to make ends meet.
Cardi plays a stripper named Diamond and Keke plays the badass Mercedes.

“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) wrote and directed the film which started shooting in New York back in March.
“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.”
The film is set to drop later this year.
