The film with be directed and written by Lorene Scafaria. The film is an adaptation of a 2016 New York Magazine exposé about gentlemen’s club dancers who join forces to empty the fat wallets of Wall Street “dirtbags who deserve to be drugged and robbed.”
Here is a quote from the article that film will be based on, which you can check out in full at the link above:
The market collapse in 2008 had left half of Wall Street unemployed, and the mood was such that the other half was staying as far from the Champagne Room as possible. The dancers, too, were all new, she found when she got on the floor. “There were all these Russian girls and Colombian girls, and they were giving blow jobs for $300,” Rosie said. “And they were good-looking. I was like, I can’t compete with this s**t!”
Then she saw a familiar face. Samantha Foxx wasn’t dancing anymore, but she was still at the clubs every night, running a crew of dark-haired minions who would pick men up and bring them into the clubs. Samantha called this, rather grandly, “marketing,” although it is generally known as “fishing” and not seen as something one could make a career out of. But Samantha seemed to be doing extraordinarily well, Rosie observed, as she watched them clicking in and out of the Champagne Room, red soles flashing. “I started noticing, these b***hes make a lot of money, and they don’t even really work,” she said. “Samantha had found some kind of loophole, where ‘I can get paid and not have to actually have sex.’ ”
Cardi B has the midas touch right now, so stay on the look out for more news on this upcoming film.
