Cardi B is going to the movies!

Deadline has just reported that Cardi B is making her big screen debut along side Jennifer Lopez in a movie about strippers getting revenge on their Wall Street clients. The film is called Hustlers, and will be written and directed by Lorene Scafaria.


Cardi has previously worked with Lopez on the song Dinero, but this will be their first time in a movie together.

This is a pretty big step for the recent Grammy winner.






The movie is about a group of former strippers during the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. The women are working together to scam their Wall Street clients out of money

Adam Fogelson, chairman of STXfilms which is producing the film, said,

"We could not have asked for a more exciting or talented lineup of performers to join our cast."

They will be joined by an all-star cast, including Constance Wu, Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles, and Lili Reinhart. More names are in talks for the film as well.






Cardi has a little history with acting. She starred in seasons 6 and 7 of Love and Hip Hop: New York. More recently she guest starred on an episodes of the BET drama, Being Mary Jane.

This movie will be the rapper's first film, and it feels poignant that she is playing a stripper. Cardi has made no secret of her previous profession, and would like to see it better respected.

In an interview with Cosmo last year she said,

"People ask, 'Why did you strip?' I don't really want to say, 'Oh, because I was in a relationship with a guy and I needed money to leave.
"People say, 'Why do you always got to say that you used to be a stripper? We get it.' Because y'all don't respect me because of it, and y'all going to respect these strippers from now on."





Filming for the new movie is scheduled to begin at the end of the month in New York City. This movie about dynamic women scamming rich men out of money cannot come soon enough.

When you're working with kids, you never know what you're going to be dealing with on a daily basis. Are you going to have the delicate sweethearts, opening their hearts to learn?

Or are you going to be dealing with a sinister group of bee wranglers, who have suddenly set up a black market bee ring througout the school?

Yes. That's a real thing that happened.

Adulthood has been pretty nice, I have to admit. I quite like it. But it isn't always easy and some lessons are more difficult to learn than others.

It's so important to learn how to budget, for instance, because being an adult can get expensive. Between rent, food, utilities, and other odds and ends, you'd be shocked how quickly money flies out the window. Understanding this (and keeping an eye on your finances) pays dividends in the long run.

But that's also assuming things go well or smoothly – unexpected expenses arise and those come with their own consequences.

People shared their thoughts after Redditor FrequentPilot5243 asked the online community,

"What is an adult problem no one prepared you for?"
