The hip-hop icon is set to star in Paramount Picture’s upcoming comedy film “Assisted Living.”

“Assisted Living” is being described as a “raucous comedy” with “tremendous heart,” in the vein of comedies like Sister Act and Mrs. Doubtfire.

Cardi B will play as 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. She decided to disguise herself as an elderly woman and hides out in the one place that no one will look – her estranged grandmother’s nursing home.

Paramount won rights to “Assisted Living” in a competitive bidding war in spring of 2019. The film is based on an original spec script by Kaye Oyegun, a writer for This is Us. Temple Hill and Stephen Love are producing.

Cardi B the Grammy-winning artist behind hits like Bodak Yellow and I Like It. She also made her future film debut, in 2019 crime drama, opposite Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, and Keke Palmer in Hustlers. The Grammy-winner will also appear in the upcoming Fast & Furious sequel F9.
