In related news, we previously reported that Cardi B is set to star in Paramount’s upcoming film “Assisted Living.” The project marks the rapper’s feature debut in a leading role.

Here’s more from Variety:

“Assisted Living” follows Amber (Cardi B), 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. Running out of options, Amber disguises herself as an elderly woman and hides out in the one place 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 Kay Oyegun, a writer for “This Is Us.” Temple Hill and Stephen Love are producing.

The series is being described as a “raucous comedy” and compared to “Tootsie,” “Sister Act” and “Mrs. Doubtfire.”
