Cardi B and J.Lo Star in New 'Hustlers' Trailer
Before the movie hits theaters next week, a new trailer for Hustlers has hit the net.
The minute-long clip stars Cardi B, who plays Diamond, a stripper from the Bronx. Jennifer Lopez’s character Ramona introduces her to Constance Wu’s character Destiny in order for her to “learn how to do a real dance.”
J.Lo trained for two months for the role. “It was challenging,” she told “Access Hollywood.” “When I talked to Cardi the first time, when we talked about doing the movie together, I had asked her some questions and I was like, ‘I’m having a really hard time learning how to pole dance.’ And she was like, ‘It takes years for people to get that, to really build up those skills.'”
The film, inspired by a New York Magazine article, follows a crew of savvy former strip club employees who band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients. Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, the all-star cast also includes Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Julia Stiles, Lizzo, and Usher.
Hustlers hits theaters Sept. 13.
