Cardi B will be making her movie debut as a stripper in the movie ‘Hustlers’ alongside Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Constance Wu, Keke Palmer, and Lili Reinhart.
According to Deadline, the rapper, 26, will be making her film debut alongside a star-studded cast. The cast includes JLo, Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart, Constance Wu, and many others.
The movie Hustlers is about a group of strippers who band together to scam the men of Wall Street out of a lot of money. “It is set in New York City in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis,” according to Rolling Stones Magazine.
The movie is written and directed by Lorene Scafaria. She gave a statement to Deadline saying, “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with this dynamic group of women. We’re grateful to have assembled such a powerhouse cast and can’t wait to start filming at the end of the week.”
This is Cardi’s first role in Hollywood. She will be playing one of the exotic dancers in the film. Before getting this role, the Bodak Yellow rapper starred in the reality show Love and Hip Hop: New York. She also appeared in an episode of Being Mary Jane.
The movie itself is based on Jessica Pressler’s New York Magazine article “The Hustlers at Scores.”
Cardi B recently won the Grammy for Best Rap Album.
