Cardi B's life has truly come full circle.

The con is on: Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez's strip club revenge movie Hustlers has found the rest of its star-studded cast.

The film, which is based on the NY magazine article "The Hustlers at Scores" by Jessica Pressler, is already assembling an A-list cast, including "Crazy Rich Asians" star Constance Wu, Lili Reinhart of "Riverdale" fame, as well as Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer and Lopez.

According to Deadline, the film is set in New York City and follows a group of savvy former strip club employees who join forces to turn the tables on their greedy Wall Street clients in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles and Mercedes Ruehl have also joined the cast, while Mette Towley (Cats) and Trace Lysette (Transparent) are in negotiations for supporting roles.

The footage was sent to a private site, where members paid a monthly fee to access the videos, it added. If convicted, the two main culprits could each face up to seven years in prison, according to police.

Lopez is fixed to star as the ringleader of the group, as they set out to con their rich clientele, and even out the playing field.

The film will be directed by Lorene Scafaria ("The Meddler"). "We're grateful to have assembled such a powerhouse cast and can't wait to start filming at the end of the week".

The movie is inspired by the article "The Hustlers at Scores" penned by Jessica Pressler for New York Magazine.

This will mark Cardi B's movie debut, although given the subject matter, she might actually have more experience for the project than the other actresses on board. Meanwhile, Oscar victor Adam McKay, Will Ferrell and Jessica Elbaum will also produce for Gloria Sanchez Productions, and STX executives Kate Vorhoff and Catherine Hagedorn will oversee the project on behalf of the studio.
