Hustlers is a 2019 American crime drama film written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, based on New York magazine's 2015 article "The Hustlers at Scores" by Jessica Pressler. The film stars Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Lizzo, and Cardi B. The plot follows a crew of strippers in New York City who begin to embezzle money by drugging stock traders and CEOs who visit their club. Lopez is also a producer on the film through Nuyorican Productions, alongside Jessica Elbaum, Will Ferrell, and Adam McKay through their Gloria Sanchez banner.
First announced in February 2016, the film was originally supposed to be financed and distributed by Annapurna Pictures. However following the company's financial issues, they dropped the rights in October 2018 and STX Entertainment picked them up. Much of the cast joined that fall through the following spring, and filming took place in New York City from March to May 2019.
Hustlers had its world premiere on September 7, 2019 at the Toronto International Film Festival, and was theatrically released in the United States on September 13, 2019, by STXfilms. The film received positive reviews from critics, with high praise for Lopez's performance.
