Hustlers trailer: Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu and Cardi B rip-off Wall Street bankers

Not to be confused with the recent comedy, The Hustle (that bombed terribly), Hustlers is based on Jessica Pressler’s viral New York Magazine piece The Hustlers at Scores. It's a real-life Robin Hood story (of sorts) that saw a group of strippers decide to rip-off rich bankers in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crash. J-Lo and Constance Wu are the headline names in terms of experienced actresses, with Cardi B and Lizzo also joining the cast. The first trailer for Hustlers dropped overnight and you can watch it above now.

Inspired by the viral New York Magazine article, Hustlers follows a crew of savvy former strip club employees who band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients.

Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World) directs and also wrote the screenplay, with the supporting cast also featuring Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles, Lili Reinhart, Trace Lysette and Madeline Brewer.

Hustlers opens in UK and US cinemas on September 13.
