Jennifer Lopez Will Play a Stripper in the Heist Film HUSTLERS

Jennifer Lopez is getting ready to play a stripper in the movie Hustlers. The film will be an adaptation of the magazine article “Hustlers at Scores” from New York Magazine. The story is about some former strip club employees who end up stealing from their Wall Street clients. Lopez is set to star in the film which will be written and directed by Lorene Scafaria with Annapurna and Gloria Sanchez producing it. Hustlers will take place in the late aughts (2000s) when the US was dealing with a big financial crisis. Scafaria said this about the film:

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. Men have been told they’re worth the size of their bank accounts. Women have been told they’re worth the symmetry of their faces, their bodies, their beauty and that’s what this film is based on. The rules of the club are the rules of the world.

Are you intrigued by this premise?
