Inspired by Jessica Pressler’s New York Magazine article “The Hustlers at Scores,” the upcoming sure-to-be-a-blockbuster “Hustlers” belongs on awards voters’ radars based on sheer star power alone; Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu lead a cast that includes Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles, Lili Reinhart, Lizzo, and Cardi B (a former stripper) in a tale of embezzlement, entrepreneurship, and stripping.
Adapted and directed by Lorene Scafaria, “Hustlers” follows a group of strippers who scam and rob their wealthy patrons. It will be released Sept. 13 by STX Entertainment. Don’t miss the fabulous new trailer, below.
