The appeal to outlets mentioned that Wu has legal standing in the film’s billing as its headliner, so should be mentioned first in coverage.
The film also stars Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B and Lizzo.
But after our exclusive on the billing brouhaha, Wu played the “sisterhood and love” card, telling ET: “We made this film with an incredible spirit of sisterhood and love. Any reports otherwise have felt like an age-old attempt to pit us against each other and knock us down when, in truth, we had the best time making this! We won’t be knocked down. We will continue to share and celebrate this story together, as sisters. Thank you to all the fans for believing in us and supporting this film.”
The film, about strippers out for revenge on Wall Street clients, will debut at Toronto Film Festival in September.
