Back in 2016, a New York Magazine article written by Jessica Pressler went viral as it followed a crew of strip club employees who band together and turn the tables on their wealthy clients. Directed and with a screenplay by Lorene Scafaria, that same crazy tale is ready to hit theatres soon in a hilarious crime drama titled Hustlers. Check out the trailer below:

Hustlers stars Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Cardi B, and Lizzo as strippers giving their Wall Street clients a run for their money.
