Hustlers, based on a true story and boasting the feature film debut of Cardi B, now has a release date.
Cardi’s co-star Jennifer Lopez made the announcement via an Instagram clip shot from the comfort of an empty Bergdorf’s Monday, noting that she was making the visit while on a break from production.
“Have you ever been in Bergdorf’s at 3 a.m.?” Lopez asked her fans. “This is what it’s like. You can walk everywhere. Look, there’s nobody here. It’s like a fantasy, a dream come true. Just rummaging through all the racks, looking at all the clothes in between takes here on the set of Hustlers. By the way, I have a secret. The release date for Hustlers has just been set for September 13. We’re coming to a theater near you. Look out for all of us!”
Per Page Six, the movie was first linked with Annapurna Pictures under the title The Hustlers of Scores. The STXfilms production, loosely based on a New York magazine article penned by Jessica Pressler, centers on a group of strip club workers who awesomely decide to take a stand against Wall Street clients.
Julia Stiles, Constance Wu, Lili Reinhart, and Keke Palmer are also among the Hustlerscast. Direction is handled by Lorene Scafaria, who previously helmed Seeking a Friend for the End of the World and multiple episodes of New Girl.
Last month, Cardi linked again with Bruno Mars for the official “Please Me” video, co-directed by Mars and Florent Dechard.
