Los Angeles, .- The rapper of Latin origin Cardi B will debut in the cinema with “Hustlers”, a movie starring also Hispanic Jennifer Lopez, informed today the specialized media Deadline.
Lopez and Constance Wu, the protagonist of “Crazy Rich Asians” (2018), were already in the cast of this film to which, in addition to Cardi B, actresses Lili Reinhart, Keke Palmer and Julia Stiles have now joined.
This is the first role on the big screen for Cardi B, an American artist of Dominican descent who has become a revelation of hip-hop thanks to his album “Invasion of Privacy” (2018) and very successful songs like “Bodak Yellow” “or” I Like It “.
For its part, Jennifer Lopez, one of the most important Latin stars of Hollywood, premiered last year the comedy “Second Act” and closed the journey of the police series “Shades of Blue” with the broadcast of its third season.
Lorene Scafaria (“Seeking a Friend for the End of the World”, 2012) is the scriptwriter and director of a film that will tell the true story of a group of striptease dancers from New York who devised a method to defraud its clients, many of them Wall Street executives and investors.
“Hustlers” is based on the article published by Jessica Pressler in New York Magazine.
“The film is an empathetic look at women and men, at our gender roles, at what we are valued, at what we have been told is our value in every film, television series and in every corner of our culture, “said Scafaria when the project was announced in August 2018.
“Men are told they are worth the size of their bank account, women are told they are worth the symmetry of their faces, their bodies, their beauty, and that’s what this movie is about. The rules of the club are the rules of the world. “(EFEUSA)
