Published Jan 14, 2021In addition to being a rap superstar and social media mainstay, Cardi B is inherently funny. Fortunately, she'll finally be given the opportunity to flex her comedy chops in her first-ever starring role.
Cardi has been tapped to star in Assisted Living, a new "raucous comedy" from Paramount. As Variety reports, the movie stars Cardi as Amber, "a small-time crook who finds herself in over her head when a heist goes wrong." She ends up disguising herself as an old lady and hiding in a nursing home.
Assisted Living was penned by This Is Us writer Kay Oyegun. No director has been attached just yet, but the script had been the subject of a huge bidding war in 2019.
After appearing in Hustlers, Cardi also landed a role in the forthcoming Fast & Furious film F9. Still, Assisted Living will mark the first film to feature her as a star.
