Cardi B has gone from the strip club to reality TV to the Grammys and she’s about to go to the silver screen.
The Boogie Down Bronx rapper is set to star in a new upcoming feature film titled Hustlers alongside Hollywood heavyweights Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, and Keke Palmer, reports Shadow and Act.
The film is a stripper-revenge flick that will begin shooting this week in New York City.
It’s based on a New York Magazine/The Cut article from 2015 titled, “The Hustlers at Scores,” and is about strip club employees who unite to “turn the tables” on their Wall Street clientele.
Others to star in the film are Riverdale star Lili Reinhart and Julia Stiles.
