Jennifer Lopez is set to turn up the heat on the big screen by starring as a former stripper in a real-life revenge drama. The 'Monster-in-Law' star has been cast as the leading lady in 'Hustlers', which centers on a group of former gentlemen's club employees who manage to scam their wealthy Wall Street regulars out of thousands each night.
The movie will be produced by Annapurna Pictures, and attached writer/director is Lorene Scafaria.
Scafaria is an all-around filmmaker, keeping herself busy writing, directing and acting in movies and TV series such as Big Helium Dog (1999), A Million Miles (2001), Coherence (2013), and The Meddler (2015).
Hustlers will be based on a New York Magazine article by Jessica Pressler - The Hustlers at Scores.
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, Scafaria said about the upcoming movie.
