As Variety reports, Cardi will play Amber, “a small-time crook who finds herself in over her head when a heist goes wrong” and chooses to disguise herself as an elderly woman and hide out at “her estranged grandmother’s nursing home” while on the lam. The movie is being released by Paramount Pictures; a release date has yet to be revealed.
Cardi made her film debut in the 2019 crime drama Hustlers, starring opposite Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, and Keke Palmer. She has also picked up a role in F9, the next chapter of the Fast & Furious series.
Her first-ever onscreen role was on VH1’s Love & Hip Hop, where she appeared from 2015 to 2017. She was also an executive producer and judge on Netflix’s music competition show Rhythm + Flow, alongside fellow judges Chance the Rapper and T.I.
