“Is she a stripper, or rapper, or singer?”–or actress? The answer is all of the above!
Cardi B is going to be joining fellow power latina, Jennifer Lopez in her new film Hustlers. The premise of the movie is about a group of ex-strippers who are seeking revenge on their wealthy clientele. Cardi has been very open about her past as a dancer so this is a great first role for her! Hustlers was written and will be directed by Lorene Scafaria. Other cast members include Constance Wu, Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles, Lili Reinhart, and Mercedes Ruehl. JLO previously posted a video of her getting into character and practicing a sexy pole routine, watch it below:
The cast is actually set to begin shooting later this week as confirmed by Scafaria. The film’s director said “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.” Well there you have it! Just one more thing to add to Cardi’s already INSANE schedule. Just like Jenny, Cardi reminded us she’s still got the moves at the AVN awards.
