We all love Cardi B’s personality. She was on a hit reality show Love and Hip Hop and grew her fanbase around her personality on Instagram. From then on she’s been on features, dropped albums, been on charts and collaborated with brands from chips to shoes. Cardi B doesn’t stop there. She is looking to star in an upcoming comedy called “Assisted Living”. This movie 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.

On the television front, Cardi B served as a judge on Netflix’s unscripted music competition series “Rhythm + Flow.” Cardi, who headlined the series with Chance the Rapper and T.I., also executive produced the show. Cardi debuted her acting skills in the 2019 drama “Hustlers” opposite Jennifer Lopez, but “Assisted Living” will be the first flick in which she is featured in the starring role. We can expect to see more of their idol on the big screen – she also has a role in the upcoming “Fast & Furious” installment “F9” which is due out in May of 2021.
