Cardi B is securing yet another bag! The “Bodak Yellow” rapper is heading back to the big screen in the upcoming film “Assisted Living”, but this time she’ll be in the starring role.
After showcasing her skills in the 2019 crime drama “Hustlers”, Cardi is ready to take on an even bigger challenge — leading a major motion picture. And according to Variety, the Paramount Pictures comedy “Assisted Living” sounds like it’s the perfect fit:
“Assisted Living” is being described as a “raucous comedy” with “tremendous heart,” in the vein of classic funny films like “Tootsie,” “Sister Act” and “Mrs. Doubtfire.” It follows Amber (Cardi B), a small-time crook who finds herself in over her head when a heist goes wrong. On the run from the cops and her former crew, she struggles to find anywhere to hide. Running out of options, Amber disguises herself as an elderly woman and hides out in the one place no one will look — her estranged grandmother’s nursing home.
Before she hit the big screen, the 28-year-old was known for her small screen antics on VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop”. Since those days she’s gone on to achieve monumental success in music, fashion, and more. But, she’s no where near done! In addition to her upcoming role in “Assisted Living”, the “WAP” rapper has also landed a feature in “F9”, the next entry in Universal’s “Fast & Furious” franchise.
A woman who knows what she wants and goes after it — you LOVE to see it!
