Deadline Hollywood reports that Constance Wu (CRAZY RICH ASIANS, FRESH OFF THE BOAT) is joining the cast of HUSTLERS, which will be produced by Jennifer Lopez, who will also headline.

More from Deadline:

THE HUSTLERS movie follows a crew of savvy former strip club employees who band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients. Lopez is set to portray the ringleader to the group. Gloria Sanchez, Benny Medina, Lopez and producing partner Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas are behind the film, which Lorene Scafaria wrote and is directing.

There is loose talk around town that Annapurna is seeing financial hardships, as this is the second film with which they have parted ways today. However, those close to Megan Ellison’s company simply say that the Hustler film wasn’t in their wheelhouse and that the company is re-calibrating. Word is the Hustlers project was in turnaround for the last month by Annapurna.

Wu is repped by UTA and Principal Entertainment LA.
