EXCLUSIVE, UPDATED with more info: STX has acquired the Jennifer Lopez Hustlers project, which was cut loose by Annapurna earlier in the day. At the same time, Crazy Rich Asians star Constance Wu has joined the cast.
However, those close to Megan Ellison's company simply say that the Hustler film wasn't in their wheelhouse and that the company is re-calibrating. There is loose talk around town that Annapurna is seeing financial hardships, as this is the second film with which they have parted ways today. Word is the Hustlers project was in turnaround for the last month by Annapurna.
Soon after the news broke today that Annapurna was pulling out of Jay Roach's Roger Ailes feature, Deadline confirmed that the Hustlers project based on the New York magazine piece "The Hustlers at Scores" was also leaving the studio. Variety first reported that Hustlers was leaving Annapurna.
