Actress and musician Jennifer Lopez has officially joined the cast of Hustlers, which is based on a New York magazine piece about former strippers who develop a plan to steal thousands of dollars from their Wall Street clients.
Lopez will play a former stripper and the ringleader of the group of boss women “who take their plans of getting their full cut too far.”
Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, The Meddler) is directing the film. She also wrote the script based on Jessica Pressler’s 2015 piece, which is based on a true story.
“The film is an empathetic look at women and men, our gender roles, what we’re valued for, what we’ve been told is our value in every movie, TV show, every corner of culture,” said Scafaria.
