Cardi B will make her debut in films in the upcoming feature “Hustlers”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is an adaptation of the New York Magazine article “Hustlers at Scores,” which tells the story of a group of strippers in New York who devised a plan to steal thousands from their wealthy Wall Street clientele.
Jennifer Lopez, Lili Reinhart, Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles, Mercedes Ruehl and Constance Wu will also appear.
We could not have asked for a more exciting or talented lineup of performers to join our cast,” Adam Fogelson, chairman of STXfilms, said in a statement to the media.
As many know, before Cardi b made it big in music, she worked as a stripper in NYC at the age of 19, so she not just act, she has lived this life.
Cardi and J. Lo previously collaborated on the 2018 track “Dinero” with DJ Khaled, and though there wasn’t a whole lot of twerking in the video, know both ladies are more than capable. Jennifer has been sharing footage on social media of herself practicing her pole tricks.
