Jennifer Lopez leads a Wall Street heist in new Hustlers clips
Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu team up to lead a Wall Street heist in the newly released clips from STX Films’ Hustlers. The film will have its world premiere this Saturday at the 2019 Toronto Film Festival and is set to arrive in theaters on September 13. Check out the videos in the players below!
Hustlers stars Jennifer Lopez (Second Act), Constance Wu (Crazy Rich Asians), Keke Palmer (Berlin Station), and Lili Reinhart (Riverdale) along with breakout artist Lizzo and Grammy-winning rapper Cardi B. The film will also feature Oscar winner Mercedes Ruehl (The Fisher King), Julia Stiles (Bourne franchise), Trace Lysette (Transparent), Mette Towley (Cats) and Madeline Brewer (The Handmaid’s Tale).
Lopez is set to play the ringleader of the group of ambitious women who take their plans of getting their full cut too far. Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, The Meddler, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist), the film takes place in the late aughts of New York City in the wake of the financial crisis and explores the toll it took on the livelihood of the dancers who relied on their Wall Street clients.
Hustlers is inspired by the article “The Hustlers at Scores” penned by Jessica Pressler for New York Magazine. The story is a true-life Robin Hood tale that centers on a crew of former strip club employees who turn tables on their Wall Street Clients.
