Lorene Scafaria’s new movie 'Hustlers' is based on a real-life group of strippers who robbed their Wall Street clientele. Scafaria had only one person in mind to play the ringleader, Ramona, and she got her. Our question was--could that really be Jennifer Lopez doing that crazy pole dance? Apparently, yes. Hot off Toronto, where 'Hustlers' won raves, Scafaria talks her fight to direct the movie, which was based on her script. She finally won that battle, and then the picture got dropped by Annapurna and then saved by STX. Meanwhile, Scafaria got Cardi B, Lizzo and Usher to be in her stripper crime movie.
