Hustling the men of the bustling Big Apple, STX Entertainment’s Hustlers might be your next favorite revenge tale film!
Fierce and feisty, the intriguing movie ‘Hustlers’ debuts its full trailer! STX Entertainment just dropped the first look of Hustlers and it’s better than expected. The trailer features a star-studded cast playing a modern-day Robin Hood story, but with strippers.
‘Hustlers’ is an upcoming comedy-drama starring Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Lili Reinhart, Lizzo, Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles and Cardi B. It follows the story of a crew of strippers who ends up hustling their Wall Street clients. The girls concoct a scheme to rob their clientele by inviting them to the club, getting them drunk and manipulating them to give them money.
In the trailer, it seemed that it was all fun and games. Like a heist, the bigger the risks, the bigger the rewards. But their intentions weren’t all bad. The narration of the trailer appeals that the girls have been all through hard times. And despite all the hustle they do in the club, they earn less than expected.
Based on a true story
“The game is rigged and it does not reward people who play by the rules.” – Ramona (Jennifer Lopez)
It follows the same premise of its origin story. The storyline is actually based on a New York magazine’s 2015 article by Jessica Pressler. The original article entitled ” The Hustlers at Score” tells the tale of a young girl who ends up being a stripper and scams, wealthy clients. They would spike their clients’ drinks with ecstasy mixed with ketamine to hype them up and muddle their memory. However, they end up getting prosecuted after one of their own anonymously snitched them to the cops. The authorities prosecuted them for forgery, conspiracy, grand larceny, and assault.
Aside from the cast mentioned above, they will be joined Madeline Brewer (Orange Is The New BlacK), Frank Whaley (Swimming with the Sharks) and Mercedes Ruehl (The Fisher King). J.Lo will be producing the movie while being directed by Lorene Scafaria. Hustlers will premiere on September 13, 2019!
