American rapper Cardi B is relieving her past life as a stripper in a new film titled Hustlers, which is set to hit the cinemas come 13 September 2019.
Also starring in the film are Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart and Lizzo. Hustlers tells the story of a group of strippers who band together to scam their wealthy male clients.
The actresses had to learn to dance like strippers for the film, and according to Jlo, pole dancing was “one of the most challenging things” she had ever done.
The same cannot be said of Cardi B, who is having a great rap career at the moment, and was once a stripper. She was said to have shown some of the cast how to give a lap dance. However, fans of the Press singer will be disappointed to learn she didn’t have much screen time. Her costar Madeline Brewer tells Cosmopolitan that Cardi only did one day of shooting for the movie.
Hustlers was inspired by an article published by New York Magazine entitled The Hustlers at Scores written by Jessica Pressler. It is directed by Lorene Scafaria and will be shown in the cinemas from the 13th of September 2019.
