Rapper Cardi B has landed what will be her first starring movie role in the comedy `Assisted Living` for Paramount Pictures.
Cardi will play a small-time crook who finds herself in over her head when a heist goes wrong. In order to evade the cops and her former crew, she decides to disguise herself as an elderly woman in her estranged grandmother's nursing home. The film is in the vein of comedies like `Sister Act` and `Mrs. Doubtfire.`
Kay Oyegun (`This Is Us`) wrote the original spec screenplay that Paramount bought in a competitive bidding war in 2019. No director has been set. Temple Hill and Stephen Love are producing `Assisted Living.`
She made her feature film debut in `Hustlers` in 2019, landing a small cameo role as a stripper at the club that employed Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez's characters. The Grammy winner will also appear in the upcoming `Fast & Furious` sequel `F9.` She previously served as a judge on the music competition show `Rhythm + Flow,` which she also executive produced.
Cardi had a monster hit with Megan Thee Stallion last year with their delightfully explicit song `WAP,` which came with an internet-breaking music video.
