Cardi B to make film debut in Jennifer Lopez’s new movie on ex-strippers

Published

It was only a matter of time before Hollywood embraced Cardi B, and, of course, with her colorful personality, the big screen couldn’t wait for her any longer.

The Bronx rapper has been tapped by Jennifer Lopez to make her acting debut in J-Lo’s new film, “Hustlers.” The movie follows a group of former strippers who finesse their way into the pockets of rich Wall Street tycoons.

The narrative was adapted from a New York magazine article titled “The Hustlers at Scores” penned by Jessica Pressler. Cardi will be in good company as “Crazy Rich Asians” star Constance Wu, Lili Reinhart of “Riverdale” fame, Julia Stiles, and Keke Palmer have been added to the cast.

Lorene Scafari (“The Meddler”) will serve as writer and director for the Lopez-produced film –– distributed by STXfilms.

“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with this dynamic group of women,” Scafaria said in a statement to Deadline on Tuesday. “We’re grateful to have assembled such a powerhouse cast and can’t wait to start filming at the end of the week.”

The film will reportedly begin production later this month in NYC.

For fans of John Cusack and “High Fidelity”, a visit to Championship Vinyl definitely would make a “top five” list. 

The hit comedy “High Fidelity” is the story of record shop owner Rob Gordon (John Cusack) on a search for love (and the reasons behind his failed relationships) against a backdrop of over 70 songs spanning multiple decades and genres of music. With – or without – the help of his record store buddies Dick (Todd Luiso) and Barry (Jack Black’s breakout role), Rob revisits past relationships in hopes of figuring out where he has gone wrong. Released in 2000, The New York Times praised John Cusack as “a master at easygoing camaraderie.” Rotten Tomatoes has “High Fidelity” ranked #14 on the list of Best Romantic Comedies. 

Now, join John Cusack for a screening of “High Fidelity” on the big screen followed by a LIVE conversation regarding his career and the making of the film. Fans will get the opportunity to experience a moderated discussion, with John answering audience questions as well. A limited number of VIP seats will be available that include a post-show photo op with John.
