Cardi B is set to make her film debut in Hustlers.
The film from STX Entertainment — also starring Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu — takes place in the late 2000s in New York City in the wake of the financial crisis and will follow a group of former strippers who plot to steal tens of thousands of dollars from their wealthy Wall Street clients.
