The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has revealed the Hustlers rating, while STXfilms has debuted a new TV spot for the film. Hustlers, opening in theaters on September 13, has been rated R for “pervasive sexual material, drug content, language and nudity.”
Hustlers stars Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Lizzo, and Cardi B. The movie was written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, whose credits include Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist and Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.
Hustlers follows a crew of savvy former strip club employees who band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients. The film is inspired by the article published by New York Magazine entitled “The Hustlers at Scores” written by Jessica Pressler. You can read the article online by clicking here.
