Hustlers is a film adapted from a 2015 New York Magazine story, The Hustlers At Scores, where journalist Jessica Pressler collected stories from a group of former strip club workers who banded together to swindle money from their filthy rich Wall Street clients. The movie was written and directed by Lorene Scafaria.
The strippers featured in the film are played by Constance Wyu, Lizzo, Cardi B, Lili Reinhart and Keke Palmer. The film is supposed to be a modern-day, female version of Robin Hood.
One of its many highlights include the steamy dance sequences, slightly teased in the trailer but definitely more to come in the actual film. With actual ex-stripper Cardi B in the film, and an emphasis on natural dialogues between the girls, the movie intends to be as honest as it is funny.
Lopez told Jimmy Fallon in a recent interview that Hustlers touches on a story “about human nature” where “greed and desperation” drive people to do the things they do.
Hustlers will be on the big screen on 13 September this year.
