Hustlers, out later this month, got a new trailer Tuesday.
"She's like, 'Show me what you've got!' So, I try," Wu previously told Entertainment Weekly of a lapdance sequence she shot with Cardi B. "She's like, 'Honey, no! This is terrible!' I didn't have to try that hard to be terrible. It's not my intuition, so, she was like, 'No, no, no, you can't do this! This is what you've got to do,' and she explained what you've gotta do and why you do it."
The importance of Cardi's casting can't be overstated, as Scafaria explained in a separate interview with Vulture over the summer. Scafaria revealed she spent two years attempting to secure Cardi for the part, ultimately resorting to the dreaded practice of DM'ing. From there, a Cardi rep replied to the director's message with a phone number.
"I have two phone numbers in my cell: Cardi 1 and Cardi 2," Scafaria said. "I'm not sure if either of them are actually Cardi."
The story of Hustlers centers on a group of strip club dancers in New York City who hustle rich men out of some dollars during the late 2000s. The comedy, which counts Adam McKay and Will Ferrell as producers, hits theaters Sept. 13.
