Cardi B is expanding her empire into Hollywood, as the rapper is set to make her feature film debut with the likes of Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez.

The Please Me hitmaker has signed on to star in Hustlers, a film based on a 2016 New York Magazine article about a group of former strippers who stole from rich Wall Street clients.

Lili Reinhart, Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles, Mette Towley, Trace Lysette and Oscar-winner Mercedes Ruehl are also in negotiations to join the film, Deadline reports.

J Lo is producing the film and Lorene Scafaria (The Meddler) will write and direct.

Cardi B has previously been extremely open about her life working as a stripper before crashing into the music world with her smash hit Bodak Yellow.

She and J Lo have collaborated in the past, last year releasing their hit Dinero.

The film will begin shooting later this month in New York City.
