“Hustlers” is a story about former strippers who team up to turn the tables on their powerful Wall Street clients. It is loosely based on the true story of a group of strippers. The story was shared in an article by Jessica Pressler called “The Hustlers at Scores”, a late 2015 piece published in The Cut.
Similar to the plot, the strippers schemed to fleece their sleazy, loaded clients out of more than the fistful of dollars they handed out.
Just as expected, Jennifer Lopez was the ring leader of the all-girl gang. The trailer opens with Jennifer Lopez, 49, giving a pole dancing lesson to Constance Wu, 37. Then we see her mastermind a heist plan with her fellow strippers. She makes a bad-a*s ringleader and tells her fellow dancers in the trailer: “The game is rigged, and it does not reward people who play by the rules.”
The ladies play by their own rules and their prey just might deserve retribution. Meanwhile, all this happens to the tune of “Press” by Cardi B, who also makes a glamorous cameo.
Watch the sizzling first trailer below:
Cast in what may be the s*xiest film in 2019 are Julia Stiles, 38; Keke Palmer, 25; internet queen Lizzo, 31; and Cardi B. Also starred are those who may take this film to the next level: Jennifer Lopez, “Crazy Rich Asians” star Constance Wu, Trace Lysette, 32, and “Riverdale’s” Lil Reinhart.
Wondering how they got Cardi B on board?
Well, director Lorene Scafaria simply slid into the former stripper, now superstar’s, Instagram DMs. She stars as a dancer named Diamond in the film. This would be the singer’s debut into the film industry.
“Hustlers” has been filming since March 2019 and will be out in the US on 13th September.
