As Deadline reports, the singer and flautist will make her first live-action debut in the movie, following her first-ever big-screen role voicing a character in the upcoming animated musical Uglydolls. Meanwhile, Lizzo also recently announced plans for her Cuz I Love You Too Tour, which will trek across America this fall.
Lorene Scafaria (The Meddler) is directing Hustlers, which is based on Jessica Pressler’s New York magazine article from 2016. The piece, titled “The Hustlers at Scores,” tells the story of a group of strippers in NYC who subverted the stripper stereotype and took advantage of their wealthy Wall Street clients.
The starry lineup for the Hustlers film also boasts names such as Julia Stiles and Keke Palmer.
Filming for the project is already underway in New York City and is set for release Sept. 13.
