Everything you need to know about "Hustlers" starring Cardi B, Lili Reinhart and Jennifer Lopez.

Hustlers is the 2019 movie we didn't know we needed. Featuring an all-star cast, we'll see Cardi B, Jennifer Lopez and Riverdale's Lili Reinhart team up for this flick about a group of strippers who steal from rich men, something Cardi B admittedly knows a thing or two about…

In March, it was confirmed the movie would be coming to theatres soon and the cast have been dropping clues on their social media pages about when the movie is coming and what it'll be like.

JLo's lip piercing and bright pink bikini is enough to tell us this movie is going to be huge. So, here's all the juicy plot spoilers, release date and casting details.

When is Hustlers being released?

Thankfully, we won't have to wait too long for Hustlers to land in cinemas. Jennifer Lopez announced that Hustlers will be released on September 13, 2019 – and they've only just started filming.

JLo revealed the exciting news on Instagram whilst they were filming in department store Bergdorf Goodman at 3AM. So, the countdown begins…

What is Hustlers about?

Hustlers will follow the story of Ramona (Jennifer Lopez), the ringleader of a group of savvy former strip club employees, who club together to swindle their Wall Street clients. The plot was inspired by a 2016 New York Magazine article.

Madeline Brewer, who plays stripper Dawn, gave even more tea on the upcoming movie's plot in an interview with Cosmopolitan. Sorry, spoilers incoming…

"Ramona and Destiny (Constance) have rules for all the girls in the group – no drugs and no drinking – because they want to avoid 'sloppy mistakes' and incidents that might get them into trouble," she spilled. "But it doesn’t matter, because Dawn is the one who ends up narcing on the whole operation." Oop…

Who has been cast in Hustlers?

Hustlers is off to a good start already with an all-star cast. Cardi B, Lili Reinhart and Jennifer Lopez are all confirmed to be in the stripper flick. Constance Wu, Julie Stiles, Keke Palmer and even Usher have also joined the cast, along with Oscar-winner Mercedes Ruehl, Trace Lysette and Mette Towley.

The Handmaid's Tale actress Madeline Brewer and Swimming with the Sharks star Frank Whaley are the latest additions to the cast.

Not too much is known about the cast's individual characters just yet, but Madeline will play Dawn, while Cardi will play a character called Diamond. Cardi revealed Diamond to the world on Instagram, wearing only heels, a blue thong and fishnet tights.

The cast just keeps getting bigger, better and badder too. Rapper, singer and all round boss Lizzo has officially joined the cast.

The announcement of was made on the Hustlers movie Instagram page on April 24. It read: "CASTING NEWS! We're excited to announce that the one and only @lizzobeeating has joined the cast of #HustlersMovie!" Could it even get much better!?
