The trailer has dropped for Hustlers and the cast alone is enough to give us swoon-inducing Ocean’s 8 vibes. Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Mercedes Ruehl, Lizzo, and Cardi B star in a stylish drama about a band of strip club employees who use their wits and feminine wiles to bleed Wall Street bro-dudes dry of their ill-gotten gains.
The revolution is coming and it will be sexy AF.
Check out the trailer for Hustlers:
Lopez is not only Hustlers’ leading lady, but also one if its producers. She’s one of several powerful women working behind the scenes. Gloria Sanchez Productions founder Jessica Elbaum (Booksmart and Dead To Me) and Elaine Goldsmith Thomas (Maid in Manhattan and The Boy Next Door) and produced the film alongside Lopez. The script was inspired by Jessica Pressler’s New York Magazine article “The Hustlers at Scores.” And this enticing adaptation was written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, the filmmaker behind Seeking a Friend for the End of the World and Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist.
So, Hustlers is giving us a star-stacked cast, a filmmaking team full of talent, a trailer stuffed with attitude, sex appeal, and Eat The Rich thrills. It’s thumping Cardi B’s “Money” like an anthem for all those women who’ve had enough of boys club bullshit. And on top of all that, it gives us Jennifer Lopez sneering the word “douchebag.”
Hustlers hits theaters in September.
