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.

As a "high achieving" student, the biggest mind-blowing fact I have ever learned has been the sheer amount of straight-up lying that happens in formal education.

It's a lot. Like a lot a lot. History class lied so hard.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
