Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu are teaming up for the comedy “Hustlers” this month, and STX Entertainment released one last trailer before the big premiere. “Hustlers” is scheduled to hit theaters on September 13th, and the movie also features Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Lizzo, and Cardi B.
Lorene Scafaria wrote and directed “Hustlers” for the studio, with Elaine Goldsmith Thomas, Jessica Elbaum, Jennifer Lopez, Benny Medina, Will Ferrell, and Adam McKay serving as executive producers. The story follows a crew of savvy former strip club employees who band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients. The film is inspired by the article published by New York Magazine entitled “The Hustlers at Scores” written by Jessica Pressler.
“Hustlers” is Constance Wu’s follow-up to “Crazy Rich Asians,” which dominated the box office back in 2018. Directed by Jon Chu, that movie opened at the top of the box office with a $26.5M debut weekend against “Mile 22” and “Alpha.” The rom-com went on to make over $238.5M for the studio and featured Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh, and Awkwafina.
“Hustlers” is the only comedy opening over the September 13th weekend, but the movie opens against Warner Bros. Pictures’ “The Goldfinch” adaptation. The horror-thriller “IT: Chapter 2” is starting off the September box office this weekend, and Brad Pitt’s “Ad Astra,” the “Downton Abbey” movie, and “Rambo: Last Blood” are all opening in theaters one week after “Hustlers” premieres in theaters.
Jennifer Lopez is also expected to star in the romantic-comedy “Marry Me” from director Kat Coiro. That project, based on the graphic novel by Bobby Crosby, also features Owen Wilson. Constance Wu is starring in “Fresh Off the Boat” on ABC, and she is voicing a character in “Wish Dragon” with John Cho, Jimmy Wong, and Natasha Liu Bordizzo.
