Hustlers: Buzzy Movies–Serio Comedy, Starring Jennifer Lopez (Women in Film)

(STX Entertainment)

This serio comedy written and directed by Lorene Scafaria should be well received by critics and be a commercial hit at the box office.

Set in 2008, at the height of the financial crisis, a group of strippers at a New York club take extreme measures to stay in business.

Jennifer Lopez has never been nominated for an Oscar and this may be her chance to get a nod.

Rumors are that her roles has elements Erin Brockovich, for which Julia Roberts won the Best Actor Oscar, ad Matthew McConaughey’s part in Soderbergh’s hit, Magic Mike.

World premiering this week at the Toronto Film Fest, Hustlers will be released in theaters on September 13.

Director: Lorene Scafaria

Cast: Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Cardi B, Lizzo
