Lizzo is slated to make her feature film debut. We repeat, Lizzo is slated to make her feature film debut. The “Good As Hell” singer will join Cardi B (also in her movie debut), Lili Reinhart, Constance Wu, and Jennifer Lopez in the upcoming flick Hustlers, which follows a group of former strip club employees who turn the tables on their wealthy Wall Street clients. Lizzo also joins Scream Queens’ Keke Palmer and 10 Things I Hate About You alum Julia Stiles. Lorene Scafaria, writer and director of the film, said of the eclectic mix:

Hustlers is inspired by “The Hustlers at Score,” a 2015 piece from The Cut written by Jessica Pressler that tells a “modern Robin Hood story” of strippers who banded against their high-profile clients. Lopez, who collaborated with Cardi for the song “Dinero” alongside DJ Khaled, took to Instagram on March 19th to confirm the news, writing, “It’s official! Constance Wu and Cardi B are joining me in @HustlersMovie – coming soon to theaters!”
A release date for Hustlers has yet to be announced, but shooting began on March 22nd. We’ll be patiently awaiting the premiere—with single dollar bills in tow.
