The movie reportedly centers around the “Bodak Yellow” hitmaker’s character, Amber” a small-time crook who finds herself in “over her head when a heist goes wrong.”

Amber reportedly runs from authorities and spends her time struggling to find places to hid from both police and her former crew. Eventually, she decides to disguise “herself as an elderly woman” and hides out in her estranged grandmother’s nursing home, per the report.

It comes after the “WAP” hitmaker made her first appearance on the big screen in Jennifer Lopez’s 2019 “Hustlers,” alongside Constance Wu and Keke Palmer.

“Inspired by the viral New York Magazine article, Hustlers follows a crew of savvy former strip club employees who band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients,” according to the description on IMDB.
