Hold the phone because we've just gotten our first peek at Lili Reinhart getting into character for her upcoming role as a stripper in the movie Hustlers and, well, it is definitely something. 

If you'll recall, Hustlers is the forthcoming film that stars Reinhart, Cardi B, Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Keke Palmer, and Julia Stiles among others. The movie is based on a true story about a group of exotic dancers who work together to scam high-level Wall Street bankers out of their money.

While we've been blessed with several behind-the-scenes photos and videos, Reinhart hasn't shared much on her personal social media about the movie. Until now, that is. 

If there's one thing we can agree on, it's that the Hustlers cast is insanely good.

Among the list of big names who have signed onto the film are Cardi B, Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Lili Reinhart, Julia Stiles, and Keke Palmer. 

Hustlers will also be Cardi's feature film debut. She's previously talked about how her past experiences of working as a stripper influenced her life before she attained superstardom. 

The movie is currently in production in New York City.

Because these women will be stealing from men on Wall Street, naturally the film is set in the Big Apple. It's also being produced by STXfilms along with Lopez. Chairman of STXfilms Adam Fogelson told Deadline, “We could not have asked for a more exciting or talented lineup of performers to join our cast."

The director, Lorene Scafaria, is really pumped about the incredible cast. 

“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with this dynamic group of women,” Scafaria told Deadline. “We’re grateful to have assembled such a powerhouse cast and can’t wait to start filming at the end of the week.” Scafaria has directed other films including The Meddler and Seeking a Friend for the Rest of the World.

As far as we can tell, everyone has been getting along really well.

In this behind-the-scenes video that looks like it was filmed by Palmer, we see that Lopez, Reinhart, and Wu are bonding like old girlfriends who have just been reunited. The four women are casually hanging out on a rooftop in New York City. Their hair is blowing in the wind, they're laughing, they're practically BFFs. All I need to know is: Where was my invite?!

They are definitely a close-knit crew.

In this snapshot captured by one of the movie's producers, Elaine Goldsmith Thomas, the four women are huddled in close to one another. Palmer and Reinhart are both barefoot, Lopez is wearing shiny gold pants, and Wu is sporting a classic leggings-and-Uggs look. 

"Don’t hate the hustler...hate the hustle," Thomas captioned the image. I mean, talk about wisdom.

People are ready for this film to hit theaters, like, right this very second.

These behind-the-scenes shots showing the cast bonding and having a blast together are making fans everywhere more eager than ever for the film. Seriously, could there be a more iconic group of women working together?! We'll be keeping an eye out for more sneak peeks as others begin their shooting schedules soon (talking to you, Cardi!). 

Speaking of sneak peeks, Reinhart finally offered up one of her own.

The notoriously private Riverdale star has been relatively mum about her shooting schedule. And she hasn't given fans any behind-the-scenes looks at her training and preparation for the movie, which, as you might guess, involves a lot of pole dancing. Needless to say, people have been very curious about how Reinhart has been prepping for the role.

And, without further ado, here it is!

Earlier today, she shared this photo on her Instagram Stories. She captioned the image: "Really nailing this whole pole dancing thing," adding the hashtag "#hustlers." 

So, first of all, can we just talk about the sheer core strength required to pull off moves like this? It seems like Reinhart is going to be just fine.

We are definitely impressed.

Although Reinhart hasn't publicly commented on the cast dynamic, her costar Stiles has. 

“It’s incredible, I’ve honestly never worked on such a professional, focused, and quiet set too, a respectful set,” Stiles told Cosmopolitan. “I think a lot of the work that Constance and Jennifer have to do is really, really challenging, not only in the fun hair/makeup/wardrobe that they have [but also] the transformation that they’re going through. But there’s actually a deeply rooted emotional story behind it, so everybody’s been really respectful. It’s great.”

Fortunately, we just got word about the film's official release date.

J.Lo recently announced on Instagram that Hustlers is coming to a theater near you on September 13. That's less than five months away! 

When it comes to pole dancing on the big screen, J.Lo told the Elvis Duran Z00 Morning Show: “It’s a nightmare thinking about being up there. I’m exposing myself, let’s say, in a way, emotionally and physically more than I’ve ever done in a movie. And I’ve done love scenes and this and that, whatever, but not like I was up there like that."
