Also featuring Constance Wu and Keke Palmer in the strip club
Hustlers, Lorene Scafaria’s upcoming film based on a real story about a group of strippers swindling Wall Street workers, has had a flashy cast from the outset. Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu (of Crazy Rich Asians) were initially set to star when the film was announced earlier this year (March 20), alongside Cardi B in her first film role. Then Lizzo was added to the mix.
Now, though, we’re getting a first look at the Hustlers characters in their natural habitat (i.e. the strip club).
Several blink-and-you’ll-miss-it teaser clips have been posted on the film’s Instagram, but for all their brevity they give a pretty good idea of what it’s all about. Think: J-Lo strutting in a fur coat and rubbing dollar bills on her face, Lizzo sliding down a pole, and Cardi (as ‘Diamond’) wearing nothing but, well, diamonds.
Hustlers, which is based on a real article in The Cut from 2015, will also feature Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, and Julie Stiles, and is slated for a September 13 release.
